Welcome Duck!

Also congrats on the nice buck Tom.

opefully we'll have some new ducks in the St. Cloud area this weekend. The remaining locals are really spooky. They're flaring away from live ducks on the water.

Thanks Borch!

It was pretty funny, havnt hunted in 4 years, get out to the spot for the first hunt and see 3 bucks, no does.

The one I got was even more amazing. I set up a ground blind expecting them to come from one direction and he ends up comming from my exposed side! Never even saw me, walked about 10 yards from me and on the first shot I misjudged the distance and shot right under him. He jumped and trotted off. The arrow landed in the cattails by the lake so I walked down and picked it up, and thinking the hunt was over, started to pack up my stuff when I looked out of the corner of my eye and there he was comming back down the trail! This time I nailed him and he only went about 100 yards. When I was tacking the blood, ANOTHER buck was walking down the trail right at me and also when I first got to my spot I kicked up a MONSTER buck that had laid there watching me for almost a half an hour before he got up and ran off. Fun times.

Tom, nice story on the buck! Sounds like a great hunt!! I'm surprised there weren't more birds down in the area this weekend. Jason, thanks for the report! I've done quite a bit of fishing up in your neck of the woods. Stayed on Moose and fished muskies this summer. Also do a lot on North Star, and Jesse (we used to stay at Ayer's campground). My uncle lives in Big Fork, and is big into the muskie scene. Are there good duck opportunities up in that area?Good to hear from you too Borsch! I know just to the west of St.Cloud can really load up with mallards too. I've got a brother who scouts for me in that area when he is muskie fishing smile.gifDuck-o-holic

Tom,

I bet that got the heart pumping! Sounds like you had a great hunt. Now with some venison in the freezer you can concentrate on those late season ducks.

      6/24/17     Got out on Washington this morning to target walleyes. Cold and windy! Busy today--a bass tournament going on. We fished several spots with leeches under a slip float for eyes. Only caught one small one, and missed a couple bites that might have been walleyes. Did catch several medium to large smallies and one largemouth. Got off the lake about 10:00 as we saw the first wave of rain approaching. Not interested in fishing cold, wind-driven rain. Guess mother nature doesn't always look at the calendar, which said summer started this week. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Then Crooked lake pier fits the bill they like corn or worms   or what city are you looking around?

      Just back from Big Sandy, fished the main basin and concentrated on two humps. Caught five walleye and kept three that were in the slot, all about 15 inchers. Quit sooner than planned as the wind really started kicking up. Leeches, lindy rigs, red hooks and a green bead did the trick. Tried spinners and crawlers with no luck. All were caught in 9 - 12 FOW.   BIG fire in McGregor this morning, a trucking business on the east end of town burnt down.

      Alright, so I got out yesterday in the early afternoon I decided to go try the Mississippi there is this little public boat dock, so I dropped a line there and within the hour I got a Northern Pike it was about 24 inches long and then about a half hour I pulled in a blacktail redhorse an it was about 12 or 13 inches long. So not a bad day out there on the river for dock fishing! I caught both the fish on them green night crawlers, I also tried throwing out a crank, a jig, and a watermelon Senko. All they wanted was them green worms! Thanks for the tips I finally caught a couple fish (hopefully there is more to come)

      Well if you are looking in the Minneapolis lake nokomis has a fishing pier   North metro Crooked lake in Andover has a pier. There is a nice park as well and all the sunfish you want to catch no big ones though.
