early goose total?

9 posts in this topic

how did everyone do? this was my best early goose hunt ever in the three years i have done this (im only 20). me and my buddies shot a total of 65 geese including 13 lesers. all in pretty much one field we got a couple in another. one morning a flock of about 60 lessers came in and five of us dropped 13 it was awsome. we are alos in a very pressured zone near prior lake. how about everyone else?

my bro and I (flowage tamer) had a pretty good early season...our best ever.

We hunted 4 days and shot 19 geese...lost 1 though as it sailed away. All but one of them were killed over field spreads, and all of the shots were on decoying birds, which was nice to see.

can't wait for duck season and then late goose / pheasant.

S.A.

Reading how well everyone did makes me think I need lessons.

10 total. This was my worst early season. But, on the bright side, I killed every one I shot at. No cripples still out there.

50 Geese total, hunted mostly with me and another buddy. Went out with 5 guys total one morning and shot 25 in an hour. A buddy of mine totalled over 100 on hunts that he was on. It was an awesome early season. Oh yeah and I'm only 20 also, go to school in Fargo but hunted metro and up here.

      I recommend considering other lakes.  URL by the 4th is nearly void of walleye.  8 years or so ago, we did a two-family trip and only caught fresh water drum.  Star Trib Article

      I was honored to be part of the "Veterans on Lake Superior" trip again this year. Channel six did a nice story about the Veterans. They were a great group out on the water.   http://www.kbjr6.com/video?clipId=13445592&autostart=true

      Hi Cliff -   Thanks for the update on the hatch.  Is this usually a bust for 2 weeks once the big hatches start?  Will be up the 30th-9th, but still excited since its the first time staying for a full week at the in-laws cabin.  Hoping to provide a few updates on the West Side through the week.

      Thanks for the info.  I searched before and after this thread for any old threads on this topic.  I got nothing before and this thread is the only one that pops up after.  I will keep looking online or stop at one of the big box stores.    Tight lines.

      J-Roy,  I use UL rod and 4 lb a lot when throwing jigs. I have found that the lighter the jig head, the more fish bite and the more you hook. Wind will mess up using light jigs though. When fishing heavy jigs, cranks, top water or spoons, I use heavier line and rod. If fishing weeds need heavy line as well.   Hook ups/bites is much higher with lite jigs. I missed about 50% of hits yesterday using 1/2 oz head. Landed about 90% of hits a few days ago when using 1/8 oz head. Tough to fish 1/8 oz on even 8 lb line so I stick with 4 lb .

      We've got the old Lakemaster chip in our Lowrance 10" unit (circa 2008-ish, I think).  The Lowrance is the generation before the HDS, but I forget the exact model.  Since getting that Lakemaster chip, Lakemaster was bought by Humminbird and their chips are now only compatible with Humminbird  units.  You might be able to find a used chip somewhere, but be sure it's from before the Humminbird acquisition.   Navionics is the only other option for Lowrance that I know of. Regardless, there have been several 1-foot soundings done in the recent past, so be sure that whatever you get has that level of detail and you should be satisfied.   There are several old threads on GPS chips for LOTW...use the search box at the upper right of your browser and type in "LOTW chip" (without the quotes).
