i never got a chance to get out this spring but i did get a chance to see the massive flocks pouring into fields and ice covered sloughs on my way to aberdeen a couple of weeks ago. i was up there again this week and they seem to have moved into north dakota from what i hear for the most part. WOW for ducks though. mallards, blue bills, golden eyes, red heads, cans, woodies, green wings, blue wings, coots, widgeon....i think the only thing i didnt see was a gadwall! and that was all just along US 12. cant wait for fall!!!!!

No, I have not hunted for Snows before but would love to try it someday, only Canadians in the early season hunt. I dont see any of these around the Bemidji Area but have seen them in ND and northwest part of Minnesota at my gramps farm in Gatzke/Middle River...

There is still a ton of geese in North Dakota!!! Was out a couple of days ago and saw some all over, from Canada north of Devils Lake to down by the North and South Dakota border. I have seen reports of still a lot of birds in South Dakota too. Kill them SOB's i cant stand them, they are getting way to smart!!!!

      There's still driveable ice in the Ely area.

        We were fishing tip-ups for pike and jigging spoons for perch over by Terry's the last few weeks. There were quite a few perch in the 3-10" range. Sometimes we had ten marks on our screens at once. They were in shallow, 6-8', and the big pike were chasing them.   Also, Rocky Reef had some pockets where the perch were thick this winter. Those tended to be in 11-16'.    I still think the perch are in there, but they're difficult to find under the ice.   Get the boat out there and idle around side-scanning for baitfish pods, kand you'll see a lot of what look like perch schools.

      White Sand had 12 inches last Monday when I fished it.  ice cracked and began shifting a few days ago.  Interesting year as ice is still tight to shoreline, but some of those cracks that developed a few days ago are up anywhere from a foot to 5 feet wide now.      I'm done. was hoping to hit N.Long one last time but not worth the risk anymore.

      46 inch pike in MN sort of a stretch as well, although I was "only" about 5 inches short on one last summer. (on vermilion)
