It is a hard to be able to find fields to hunt in early season. Most of the fields are not cleared yet, and if they are, people already have them locked up. From the way that i look at it, you have to pay to get what you want.

Get out and beat on some doors, expect a few refusals, but all it takes is one yes. Next year start earlier, kind of tough finding a spot not taken a week before the season starts. Also, keep scouting during the early weeks of the season, as the farmers start chopping corn, the geese will start using them, and it might be easier to get permission.

Black is right. Its not going to happen over night. Use the time that you have in the offseason to find them fields. And like he said, once crop comes out, watch all fields aroung it, and hit them hard with the farmers that are running them. Make sure you honor their fields as well, to help yourself out in the long run for years down the road.

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.

      Vexilar makes many "fish finders" what model do you have. Is it a flasher, a graph, WiFi type. Will help in knowing what your looking at when running your finder.

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff

      Ice forming in the dogs water dish right now! Forcast still looks good starting Tuesday. I predict the first truck thru the ice on Buffalo will be Dec 23!
