Lamoure, North Dakota??

9 posts in this topic

I'll be heading to Lamoure, ND tomorrow night and was wondering if anyone has seen or heard how the water levels and duck populations have been out there lately. The MN opener wasn't too kind to us, so hopefully we'll get some shooting out there.

Thanks

we were in edmore, N.D. this past weekend and didn't do to hot. Water levels are very high compared to in the past i was told. Still a lot of standing crops. The four of use shot two mallards over the weekend. A lot of spoon bills and gadwall coot on the sloughs everywhere. Hope conditions are better for you guys. we will be heading back on the 16th.

Strastosman,

Yes, that's where we have been going the last three years. We started 6 years ago staying in Wyndmere, ND and learned that one of my hunting buddies had some in-laws with a farm between Verona and LaMoure.

We have been going there for about 5 years also, we just stay at the hotel there in town though, it's set up for hunters pretty good. That is a good area and we have always done very well on both ducks and pheasants. I would be curious also to the #'s of ducks this year.

We have a house in Kulm, just West of Lamoure. Been hunting that area for over 25 years during the wet and the dry. It always been good.
My brother is out there right now. He was saying there are a lot of hunters in area 1 but hasn't seen many in area 3. Ducks are there but you have to work for them. Like other years come over a hill 1/2 a mile away and the Mallards are gettin up and goin.
He had a good Teal shoot the first 2 days of non-res opening and picked up a couple of geese. Lots od different birds around this year. Spoonies, Teal, Gadwall, Mallards, Widgeon, Pintail, Ruddies and a few Golden Eye, Bills & Redheads.
Looks like it might be another good year. Good luck and stay safe.

      There is spots in the parking lot for roughly 7 vehicles with trailers. When that's full, you can park on the side of the road leading up to the access (I don't know if it's legal but have never seen tickets given out nor have I received one). The access is fairly steep but  in good shape. A 16ft will go up/down and launch no problem. 20'+ fish houses can make it up and down.    The access on the south side (past the Bear trap) on Highway 71 has much more parking and is a flat landing with 2 docks.   Water clarity is good. Fishing is mediocre.

      Haven't tried fishing there but I would love to go there someday.

      Basskisser, You will love the lake. Compared to other sizeable lakes in MN the traffic is much lower.  Plus Vermilion has so much shoreline with great bays everywhere.  I always have a rod rigged with a Rapala DT6 in red crawdad color and another set up with a fintech jig and tube in either a crawdad brown or green pumpkin.  The Rap works great if you want to cover water and just bounce it down a rocky shoreline.  The tube is perfect for throwing under docks or submerged rocks that your sonar points out.  Good luck and have fun.  There is some great bass fishing on Vermilion.

      Hi all, I just want to askl if someone ever tried using shrooms or truffles for medical purposes? I was reading some articles about this and shrooms before engaging my self for the first time. They say that it has a very potent effect on the brain and hallucination. Unlike marijuana does it have any medical use? In one article that I've read magic truffles or shrooms are use on reducing the symtoms of obsessive-conpulsive disorder, anxiety, and depression. It can also help people to quit smoking and alcohol addiction. Some studies also suggest the property of magic shrooms/truffles can be useful for cancer patients. I would really want to hear other insights regarding this new possible alternative meds. Thanks

      I literally just watched an episode of Linders Angling Edge where they echoed exactly what SkunkedAgains quote claimed.
