I've heard that they are very effective for snows (moreso than for ducks / canadas)

That said I have never seen them in use or even hunted snows so what do I know. Hoping to change that this spring but without the kindness of strangers our group of 4 won't be decoying birds but instead sneaking / pass shooting.

We use one when we go to canada in the fall. They work great for ducks! The ducks will just pile in under that thing. The geese, both canadas and snows seem to be very shy of it. If we set up for snows we will not put it up or we will take it down after the early flight of ducks. Just my experience.

It is a duck killer!

They look sweet, that's for sure. Roboducks and Vortex machines. Who needs wind anymore? Certainly are spendy but you can get some great hunts in under them.

IceHawk if you get one and use it let us know how it went.

      Did you finish 7th grade grammar? I'm trying to understand your question...can't!

      There are two main spawning spots on Vermilion that I know of. I'm near the one on the west end of Vermilion. The walleye haven't been as good on this end yet they don't pull any fish out from here. They've been pulling walleye out of the east end spawning spot in Pike Bay, and for some reason walleye have been doing better over there.   I have no doubt that there are many variables that go into the equation, but you can't ignore that the end they put the 10% back into has been doing better than the one where they leave it alone.

      Are there any updates for the area?  It sounds like crappie fishing is good in the shallows on Fishtrap.  I heard Sham is fighting high waters with no end in sight....

      Trolloni - Do you write it that way to actually troll us?  Creel/lake surveys show Vermilion is very healthy and the DNR continues to use new technology.  It's only going to get better.  If we listened to old, arm-chair QB's, fishing would be as shi#TY as the West side.

      At least10% of all eggs hatched at the Pike River Hatchery are returned to Vermilion waters every year. According to DNR statistics that percentage is usually a much higher survival rate then if they had let the walleyes spawn naturally! I consider that a good trade off! Cliff
