7 posts in this topic

has any of you guys hunted the big water, I typically hunt it opening day of deer season not hardly any one out their. but the last couple of years it was way to nice and warm to hunt it besides not many ducks . I hunted deer those years and was wondering if anyone gave it a try

I know a guy that hunted it a couple years back during ice up and couldn't keep the goldeneyes out of the dekes...

Might hunt it this year but we'll have to see. Last year was horrid for divers in my areas but I did manage my first canvasback ever--man did it taste good! Best duck I've ever had.

hey sartell angler yea a couple years back maybe three it was almost impossible not to get a bill or goldeneye they were all over it was a blast 12 gauge style . I also (then) shot a can the last day of season. it was 25 years since the last one. I'm hoping for cold wheather early that lake can be awsome!

Years ago used to hunt right by the public access in Wahkon Bay, good shooting, haven't done it in years and not sure if you even could...I think you cold probably hunt out on them islands if you have access.

      recommendation for first timers to northern Minnesota?  we need decent lodging, boat or sitontop kayak, smallmouth is our favorite but we will fish for anything that will bite artificial.  thanks in advance for any help.

      My Alaska trip fell through, so I'm thinking having never been to Minnesota that should be my destination. thinking a week in august. Probably start International Falls or Duluth. We need a resort with sit on top kayaks or aluminum boats, comfortable lodging without being plush and not ripping our heads off pricewise.  We will target Smallmouth, but if it will hit a lure I will fish for it. any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

      Went out of Stoney Point sunday morning.  FYI Watch for deer almost smoked a few on the 20 mph section coming back into the access!  There is an ice heave forming off of the rocks going straight north.  If you want to fish Paris Trench people were crossing instantly using boards.  We weren't gutsy/brave/stupid enough to cross there since we were pulling a trailer behind a four wheeler and had 3 of us with all our gear.  The ice was sketchy from access to point at the point the ice heave goes a little further away from shore and it allows you some room to avoid the point's tip.  There is open water immediately around the point tip but ice looks great if you follow the tracks and avoid huging the tip.  We couldn't find a place to cross the ice heave to get to Paris Trench so we were going to try a few spots further north since we could see a few groups set up north a ways.  About 5.5 miles north of the access the ice heave quits and you can cross it without any worries.  Since we could cross the GPS spot we wanted to fish was only 2.5 miles away and we fished there.  Out in the middle we had 26-28" of ice and barely made it through.  While fishing a plane landed on the lake and a 1/2 ton extended cab pickup came from the NE some where, it was too foggy misty to see where and we didn't see him leave.  Coming back from Stoney Point's Tip to the access was very sketchy.  Made me nervous since there was a lot of slush and water but ice held us up.  If you plan on going out next weekend you may need to find a different access, or atleast I would!  Talked to a guy who came in behind us, they crossed the ice heave at the access using boards how they did and they said it was very slow and only got two.
