I am going out in the morning. Sounds like we might get some rain and or t-storms. What is your threshold as far as weather is concerned? I will not go out if there is lightning, but I do love the misty grey days or even a light snow fall for hunting....

I was out in a pounding rain last Friday, but it lightened up right at shooting time. If it's lightning, I won't go on the water. Other than lightning, I will usually go. Usually the worse the weather is, the better the hunting gets.

Snow is the best. They are flying low and just want to get down. I love it.

I agree duckbill...you can't beat the snow!

I like it cold, cloudy, with a nice chop on the water...if there is a light snow coming down, you will definitely see me out there.

Wish the forecast for this weekend would change...sounds like better weather for fishing or a ballgame than for duckhunting...70+ degrees and sunny is not weather that will keep the birds moving after the first half hour of so of shooting time.

S.A.

I hunted in the snow last week. What a blast. North wind at 40 to 50 MPH. 24 degrees F. Snow geese came in at 10 to 15 yards over the decoys.
It is funny how dumb the birds get in bad weather. We had two days of cold and blow. It saved our trip.

Late last season I bailed from work early to go duck hunitng in an approaching blizzard. It was a blast. By the time I got setup the snow was falling heavily and the wind was howling. If they weren't flying low you didn't know they were there.

I guess I'd prefer to have it 60-70 and sunny, but that doesn't always happen.

Weather in no shape or form deters me. Last year for example, we hunted ducks for 3 days when it was -16 degrees. We hunted ducks in blizzards with visabilities less than 100 yards. We spent several hours a day breaking ice to and from a secret spot...all for 15 minutes limits for 5 guys.

Why would you want it that warm / nice? That is good fishin' weather, but for hunting I prefer it 40 degrees, overcast, and a nice breeze.

This rings true for ducks, geese, pheasants, etc.

I'm skipping ducks this weekend and trading the shotgun for my Walleye rod. Will start in on ducks again next weekend - hope for &^%&^ weather in Canada or we could just "Blame it on Canada"

      Walleye numbers are strong. Unfortunate for the fisherman, the perch forage base on the lake has exploded. Lots of 3" - 5" food for the walleye = a tough bite....  
    • Alex wilhelmi
      Ok guys just a question not looking for places to go or tips. Just a question about the fish numbers. I've read multiple reviews that are good and bad, some say the Indians are over fishing it, others say all the sleeper houses are over fishing it. That and when the DNR does their number count. Walleye numbers are really low. Others say it's awesome fishing. But the bass and big walleye and Pike are eating all the young eyes. It's a huge lake it has to be good! Friend of mine went up with a portable Last weekend for the tournament and a 2.5 lb tullibee won the whole thing. And he didn't catch a thing. Long trip from Iowa to get beat down like that. I want to fish this lake so bad, with a portable or sleeper. But is it worth it? Fish numbers good or not? Thanks guys

      Yah, that lake is going to be crazy busier than normal this weekend. Another poster asked about rental wheelhouses a week or so ago and they were pointed toward C l I s t.  You could try that as well since they’re dealer based.

      Not sure who you have tried,  but it can be difficult as a result of the Perch Extravaganza. I have to believe somebody has a shack yet. I'll throw out some name's: Jerry Brandts,  Eddy Lybacks, Kevin McQuoids (Macs Twin Bay), Hunter Winfields, Dickies, Castaways, Agate Bay, Hunters Point, Barnacles, Red Door, Twin Pines, Garrison Sports, Rocky Reef, Appledorns, KJ's Ice fishing, Randys Rentals. Good Luck, hope you find a shack

      I got this box from a friend this winter. Very well made and thought out design! Runs on a standard 12v flasher battery. Thought some of you may be interested in one! Check them out at www.facebook.com/Js12vpowerboxes/ Cliff

      nickeleye, Thanks for the report! Lookers but no biters seems to be the pattern the past couple of weeks. Common for this time of the winter on Vermilion! Cliff
