      Fishing Report Clubs - LIMITED MEMBERSHIP - Join Today - FREE   01/24/2018

      Fishing Minnesota had added a new menu item (see above) called Fishing Report Clubs. It's a way to keep the really good fishing reports coming and being shared only with those who also provide detailed fishing reports. We will only approve new members who request to join if they have already posted a recent fishing report in the area forum, associated with the Fishing Report Club area  you want to join. We are going to limit the number of regular memberships, in the Fishing Report Clubs, to the top 20  members in each Club, to those with the best frequency and quality fishing reports provided in the club and less so in the regular fishing report forum open to all members. The higher quality fishing report reserved for the club of course. If  you want fishing reports  around your area, I would Join Now, some of the clubs are starting to fill fast. Use the Fishing Reports Club link in the Menu above (after you've posted a fishing report in the regular area forum) and request to Join.

Timber Wolf Hunting Onterio

Recommended Posts

Dock Boy

Hey Guys, I just purchased a Onterio small games license and a Wolf Seal. Has anyone here hunted wolves before. I have a friend that lives on Lac La Croix and that is where I plan on hunting. We may try baiting and posting and then cruising the lakes via snowmobile. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

I would try using those calls, but I don't have any of them. Does anyone on the forum have some to borrow or rent. I live near International Falls. Thanks for the help

calls are fairly cheap for hand calls and thats what id try to carry around up there. 10 20 bucks at cabelas. i did find some at a gas station up that way one time for 3 bucks so id try to get your own and give it some practice.

I don't know if this is legal or not in Canada. I have heard of people dragging a road killed deer out to the middle of a lake, on the ice of course, and sitting back and watching it for a couple of days. Mister Wolf will show up for a free meal. cool.gifcool.gif

To bait wolves is legal in Ontario and it's what I do to catch mine in snares but have hunted them over bait too with success but often they prefer to come only into the open under the cover of darkness and it's illegal to shoot here then .

Usually we run them with radio collared hounds and trying to get ahead of the dogs with snowmachines but like anything being run by hounds, wolves have a tendancy to run thick cover and it's getting a decent shot that is the hard part .I've tried calling and I am sure it will work but can't claim any success because I don't have the time in doing it much .

I have always found timbers to be a far travelling critter that moves around in a large territory . Even at a bait pile they only hang around for so long before leaving and your best bait by far is beaver .

The squawking of ravens at a baitpile really draws the foxes and wolves in but it's keeping enough bait at the pile with ravens around that can become a difficulty too . I have a system that works to trap wolves consistently around baitpiles but getting a clean shot is a whole other story .

Hey Trapper, Thanks for the info, We have been getting beavers from a local trapper near La Croix. My partner usually drills an ice hole and lets the beaver freeze half way in the water so something can't just grab and run with it. Trapper do you think the best bet would be baiting or cruising with the sleds looking for them. What is you system that works over bait. Here is my email address if you would rather email me. caseywave11@hotmail.com. This would be greatly appreciated.

      Fowldreams, did you have shiners? Just curious if preferred them over shiners, or thats just what you had.

      suckers, suckers, suckers. This was the only bait that worked for us last weekend and when the fish hit the rattle reels line spooled fast.

      What surprised me about the fishery in SE Florida is that it is mostly live bait (Shiners). There are so many fish in those channels that the Peacock's won't chase a bait for long. I guess they can be caught on the fly but your casts needs to be very accurate and your hookset quick because they spit the flies fast. Our guide said artificials could be done but you're going to spend all day to maybe catch a few fish. Watching the videos of those Amazon Peacock's destroying topwater plugs and jerkbaits looks like a riot!!!

      Thanks again guys! Much appreciated!

      Smaller suckers and shiners.  One hint is that you may want to get your bait prior to getting close to the lake.  A lot of the area bait shops having a hard time getting the suckers and shiners in the past weeks.

      Has your tip up been in deeper water, shallower or the same? I’m hoping to get some iced this last weekend of the season. Devils Lake in ND is a good bet.

      Back on the Horseshoe chain I put in another 7 hours seeing zero pike yesterday.  I must be using the wrong decoys since I can draw in sunfish, crappies, bass, and catfish all day.  Finally caught a pike on a tip-up outside the house so at least I didn't get skunked again.  Looks like that will do it for spearing season unless I can figure out a North Dakota lake to try...

      Quick report from last weekend: Fished a couple midlake reefs in big bay and the walleye seemed to be non existent aside from a few dinks, although, the action was pretty decent. Jumbo perch, tullibee, and a few crappie kept me busy. From hearing other people’s late season reports along with my experience last weekend it seems like a lot of the walleye have moved to different types of structure, perhaps shallower?? I’m not sure, but had very few marks that appeared to be walleye.
