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.

      Was out last Saturday and moved a couple times then into the house for the overnight. No luck on walleyes but did see a lot of small perch on the camera at multiple locations and depths from 15' to 33'. It was still a fun time and that is the allure of Mille Lacs for me more than bringing anything home for a meal. I guess it is all what you are looking to accomplish. Have fun regardless!

      Last year I grabbed my new license a few days early and hit a lake east of here.  Had my new license in my pocket.  2 people on the lake and I got checked by a young CO that walked out from the access. Nice guy. Showed it to him and he said this is for the new season. I had the old one on shore in the car and told him that. He said no problem and mentioned to carry it till the new season starts.  Checked my bucket and we visited a bit. Then he walked about 1/4 mile to the only other person I saw out to check him. So carry the current one  if you buy early.

      better buy your new one on the 24th and carry both so you dont end up in jail...

      Fished 4 days this last weekend. 1 tullibee, 1 walleye, sun up to sun down drilled and moved several times. Fun to fish but came home and limited out on sunnies on a small lake near me the allure of the big pond is over for me. Just my 2 cents good luck and have fun if you go.

      When I purchased them at a sports show, the guy doing the demo recommended the small duckbill pliers he was using sold by Menard’s. I tried using a small needle nose as well as a leather man, and ruined quite a few. I got the duck bills at Menard’s and that was the ticket, just like the guy said! I think the pressure is spread more evenly over the stop.

      It’s still a blast to fish

      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....
