Where to go now?

6 posts in this topic

well I had my opening morning stand picked out, but after looking at the weather, it looks like I'll have to bust out the blind because of some rain coming in tomorrow (of course on opener), so where would you guys suggest I put it? I was thinking in a pine tree plantation, figuring they'll be trying to bed in there...

Find a trail coming from a food area and set it off a little bit and clip some branches and put it under a tree and cover with clipped tree branches.

I'd say find a spot under some big white oaks that will work for the wind conditions.

I would set it up between a food source and thier bedding area.I might stay by the beans and hay if its only a light drizzle.If its raining hard I would then get closer to the corn.

When putting up your blind make sure you cover it well or they will shy away.I would cut branches off a tree and put them all the way around and on top of the blind.It would hurt to spray a little scent control or cover spray on the blind also.

Good luck and tip a nice one over. smile.gif

Also,if it is raining real hard I might think of not hunting as you will have a hard time tracking a deer with no blood trail.

      I recommend considering other lakes.  URL by the 4th is nearly void of walleye.  8 years or so ago, we did a two-family trip and only caught fresh water drum.  Star Trib Article

      I was honored to be part of the "Veterans on Lake Superior" trip again this year. Channel six did a nice story about the Veterans. They were a great group out on the water.   http://www.kbjr6.com/video?clipId=13445592&autostart=true

      Hi Cliff -   Thanks for the update on the hatch.  Is this usually a bust for 2 weeks once the big hatches start?  Will be up the 30th-9th, but still excited since its the first time staying for a full week at the in-laws cabin.  Hoping to provide a few updates on the West Side through the week.

      Thanks for the info.  I searched before and after this thread for any old threads on this topic.  I got nothing before and this thread is the only one that pops up after.  I will keep looking online or stop at one of the big box stores.    Tight lines.

      J-Roy,  I use UL rod and 4 lb a lot when throwing jigs. I have found that the lighter the jig head, the more fish bite and the more you hook. Wind will mess up using light jigs though. When fishing heavy jigs, cranks, top water or spoons, I use heavier line and rod. If fishing weeds need heavy line as well.   Hook ups/bites is much higher with lite jigs. I missed about 50% of hits yesterday using 1/2 oz head. Landed about 90% of hits a few days ago when using 1/8 oz head. Tough to fish 1/8 oz on even 8 lb line so I stick with 4 lb .
