Goose flags?

7 posts in this topic

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.

      Saw a group  like you described a couple weeks back below the Sartell dam while fishing.They didnt have head gear though.They were playing by the dam gates riding the flow from the open side.Then they hung out by the closed side and I learned that its only about knee high on a certain area  that in my mind thought it was much deeper.Looked like fun for sure

      I have a Minn Kota Ulterra and am not having any problems. In last two days I have seen two fisherman struggling out on the water trying to stow their units that failed to auto stow. There is an emergency procedure described in digital manual but it is not very helpful. I have looked for a video of this procedure on You Tube but couldn't find one. Has anyone had any luck finding such a video??

      Back to fun pictures and the reason I love coming to the Tower/Ely area!   There's just an amazing difference in the environment up here.  It's something I miss pretty much every day I'm not here.  And when you have as beautiful of a Saturday as we had yesterday, I just gotta say "Ahhh, this makes everything else worthwhile."   And when I go back through my best fishing memories, SO many have been made here, and yesterday I added another.  These girls in consecutive casts:

      On Thursday I caught many crappies and sunfish that had not spawned yet. None of the bigger ones seemed to have spawned at all. We also caught almost no males.

      I don't know what's wrong yet but I'm guessing it's not good. More pictures and drs in coming weeks.
