I hunted last weekend when I found open water and birds scouting the day before. Never saw a duck with a gun in hand.

There are few birds in the area, and I personally have not seen anything all week besides geese around Fergus. Lots of geese, and I'm sure some mallards too, are hitting the fields if they are around. I would opt for that myself.

Tonight and tomorrow night is going to get cold. Lows 9 degrees both nights. I'm thinking ice fishing on some lakes by the weekend.

Was there last weekend and got some Golden eyes and mallards where there was open water. Did not see a lot of ducks, but there were lots of geese in Fergus. I will be back Friday morning to give it one more run. Mallards should still be around along with golden eyes. I may even try feild hunting some of those geese. Good luck.

When the Coots pack up and leave it's time to clean the guns. They left two days ago and they took everybody with them except the urban geese and a few downtown mallards. Best thing for a sane man to hunt now is a warm recliner, cold brew and hot football game.

But I DID have nine fox squirrels on my front deck yesterday.

We hunted Friday, Saturday and Sunday. The golden eyes are gone along with most of the mallards. Never fired a shot at a duck, but my brothers did manage to limit out Saturday and Sunday on geese east of Fergus.

Mallard limits on this last Saturday, and 5 between 3 of us on Sunday. Find some open water near a corn field tomorrow if you want to get out one more time for late season mallards. All the mallards we shot were double or triple curls.

      For all you pan fish lovers, check out this beautiful pumpkin seed I found guarding the bed while I was out bass fishing. Couldn't help but get some video of this beaut! Enjoy!

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff

      Just wondering if any one will give me pointers on this lake??  Not specific spots.  Going to be at Pocahontas Resort July 1 - July 8th.  I am bass guy for most part but have kids (6 & 4) that love to fish for panfish and want them to keep entertained.  Any tips or information would be greatly appreciated!!!  Thanks!
