goose hunting around st. cloud

4 posts in this topic

Just curious how many people hunt around the st. cloud and particulary the sartell area? I just recently moved here and thought about drivin around asking for permission, but a couple people told me its not worth trying because they seen so many people hunting the area already. anybody notice a lot of hunting pressure..? just wondering if its worth a shot.. thanks

It's always worth a shot! But there are alot of guides in that area that lease alot of the prime spots. The river is always public tho and the birds come back after feeding in the fields.

I've lived in Sartell my whole life and have some good land connections through friends and their farming relatives...it is a great place to hunt geese if you have land access, plus you can't beat a 5 minute drive from your house to where you're hunting.

I'd say just start driving around looking for fields that could hold geese and are relatively close to town--even if the corn isn't cut, etc, doesn't hurt to have some potential spots later on.

Good luck, and email me if you want to get together for a hunt sometime.

Seekingwalleye...I too am looking for goose hunting grounds...I live 4 miles south of St. Augusta, I was new to the area last October and if you're new too, maybe we could hook up and shoot some honkers?

Email me if you're interested... rhoffmanisu@hotmail.com

      The Rum has been dropping in flow and water level since the 20th from St Francis down if that helps

      Fishing awful this morning. Launched at 8:30. By 12:30 had exactly two small pike. Finally found some walleyes and ended up with 22 fish - NO BASS! bummer. Water cold - only 61-64 degrees. Weather man blew it again. Walleyes in about 20 FOW, best lure Lunker City Fin-S-Fish.   New camera worked well but had troubles with new sonar/GPS. Think I got it fixed once home.   Here is today's video: June 26 video

      We took our annual trip to Rainy Lake in mid-June staying at Taylor's Cove along Bear's Pass.  My dad started going there back in the late 70's and now brings me and my son.  Every year provides great memories, new and old.  Anyhow, fishing was very good, particularly for bass and walleye. Water temps ranged from 62-72 degrees.  Most days were about 75 degrees, overcast and breezy.  Our biggest smallmouth was 22" and biggest walleye was 30".  In fact we boated ten walleye 25" or larger.  We caught pike up to 37".  We found walleyes in weedy bays around 6-10' deep.  Bass were in 5-8'.  Most of the fish were spitting up perch so I imagine that's what kept them shallow.  A few pics to share.  Wish I could be there more often...

      You can't find one? How much do they cost? Try Cabela's for starters.All the I-Pilot and I-Pilot Link models have Spot-lock.   http://www.cabelas.com/browse.cmd?categoryId=734095080&CQ_search=terrova   https://www.minnkotamotors.com/Trolling-Motors/Freshwater-Bow-Mount/New-Terrova/

      Nice, I'll have to start fishing it more and learn it.

      You can find crappies and sunfish anywhere on the like around the pencil reeds and/or cabbage.  One of the best spots is right in front of the resort, but don't limit yourself there as there are plenty of spots all over the lake for pan fish.  The nice part is that you will probably also catch bass while going for pan fish.  Good luck and remember to give other fisherman plenty of room.  No reason to fish close to others.
