Goose flags?

Recommended Posts

outdoor ran

I always see people using goose flags on tv in the fields. Does anyone ever use them on the water hunts for geese? Is there a art to it, any tips or tricks? Any one ever add a few duck dekes in the spread for the goose season only?

We are going to throw some full body duck decoys in our early season goose spread this year we have been seeing a few ducks mixed in with the geese so we are going to give it a try. If it works or not im not quit sure Hopefully it does.

We don't use our flags on water because it draws too much attention to the blind

I would say that flags are a great addition to the spread in the field. . only if you are hunting out of layout blinds or some sort of bling that lies within the decoys. . they provide a lot of movement and get the attention of them honkers. . . i know we have at least one in the blind maybe even two sometimes. . .

if we are not in a pit or in our layouts we will only use the flag if they are WAY off in the distance...sometimes I'll just run out into the spread and start flagging...

I plan to bring a flag along for water hunts this year providing the geese are quite a ways away. Also plan on using a jerk cord more than a roto so we still have a chance to decoy some geese.

I like the Browning flags because they are camo on one side so you can flip it over when you're done using it and it doesn't stand out as bad laying next to the blind.

Go with the Browning flag. You cannot go wrong with them. They are hands down the best flag out there.

      Hi all. I'm a newbie. And Iowan, but I love everything Minnesota. Ice Fishing is a short season here. I'm down by cedar rapids. Girlfriend and I are going to faribault this weekend to try some lakes. Any tips would be appreciated. I honestly don't keep many walleye back here, we imposed our own 17 in to 24 in all we keep standard. And it's helping the River in our area. At Least we think so.  Anyway, we're just looking for some good walleye and Pike action any bonus panfish too. If you could give us some legit pointers . That would make an awesome trip. Thanks again. Tight lines God too many beers . We only keep 17 to 24 inch eyes

      First Welcome to FM, They definitely can be caught during the day but the water is really clear usally on that lake and I have found over the years of fishing it that the evening into the dark bite can be way better. Don't rule out trying to target those fish you saw.  Some options are fishing  on a cloudy day, or try down sizeing your presentation as you may surprise yourself and put a few topside.

      Electrical tape for me nice and smooth. If your worried about the residue at the end of the season a little tip is rub  toothpaste on the cork work it around then wash in water.  Cleans them up takes the scum off and they look good as new when done.
