Iowa's seasons over

2 posts in this topic

Went down to Iowa yesterday for one last shot. 6 guys finished up with 12 roosters. And lost a couple. We hunted by spencer, got up over 200. One of those awesome Iowa hunts. Hens everywhere. One rooster in every 20 hens jumped. Very Very jumpy. They would bail out of the field when we came over the hill or got out of the trucks. A friend of mine caught one by hand that was burrowed under a snow drift. We didn't know if it was a hen or rooster until he pulled it out. It was a hen and he through it in the air and flew away. Thats something I'll never forget.

      I'll be out this wknd and got 3 spots to try out so still debating which one will be the ticket. The past couple weeks I've been getting some while crappie fishing.  Going to be shore fishing so FYI the water level is pretty high right now with all the rain from few weeks ago. A wader would be handy if you have one.  Good luck n be safe out there.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.

      yepper, almost 30 between the 2 of us in the slack water next to fast water. kinda hard to fish in that fast water when it's moving so fast...

      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.
