Wrong Forum?---NO----- Anybody seen many Vermilion area Grouse?

6 posts in this topic

Just wondering if any of you guys have been out in the area for grouse. I have seen two here at the resort, and I have a very excited 11 year old son to get out for some birds. Just wondering if some of you have been out.

I have a 9 mile drive on a dirt road to get to my cabin. when I came in Friday at about 5:30 I counted 7 grouse on the road. My guess is the woods is loaded with them. By the way walleye fishing was terrific in spite of the heavy wind and all the musky fisherman running around.

Keep your hook sharp, Tadpole

Doug, I am on the Tower end, I have about a 1/2 mile drive to my place and the other day when I came in I had 5 (Partridge) Grouse sitting on the road. I had to actually slow down and let them cross the road. Looks like it might be a good year for the birdies, I probaly will get more "birdies" in the woods than on the golf course.

Must be nice to own a resort. No work to do, make lots of money, and have all the time in the world just to hunt! Oh by the way, the boy and I saw 22 chichens and shot 10 sunday, on the Holms road.

PT-

Ah yes!! The life of the resort owner. I am free to work any 12-16 hours a day I choose. I don't have the worries of what to do on Saturday for 22 weeks out of the year, because Saturday is not a day off, for that matter, no day is a day off. However, I am most blessed, first of all to be able to do what I love, and that I love what I do. I once heard that making your vocation you avocation is the key enjoying your work. Once again, I feel very blessed, and I am thankful everyday for what I do for a living.

Oh, and thanks for the tip on Holms RD. Might get up there sometime between afternoon bon bons and evening crumpets.

Doug

      Shagawa in Ely has a public beach.  That's the closest to Bear Head that I know of.  You'd have to launch a ways across the lake but you could just motor over to it.

      Sorry for late response.  The Gander in Eden Prairie had quite a few...

      Catfishing is pretty stable right now. The water is getting very low making the north end of Grand Forks begin to get sketchy for travel.  The lack of current has the fish spread out also.  Stay on the move and when you land of fish you should have no trouble catching them.  The best areas have been anywhere you can find more current than the surrounding area.  The middle of the River in mid range holes has also been a good place to look. 
        Bait has changed for me this week with frogs being the hands down number one so far.  Sucker and goldeye have been working too.  I still believe getting bait in front of the fish is is the key more than what the bait is but try it all.   Remember the I-29 Catfish Classic is in just 2 weeks.

      Made it out last night. Beautiful night. Caught a bunch of Crappies, sunnies, a norsky and a few walleyes. All CR. Amazing how quiet the lake was. I was the only boat out for the most part. First boat in parking lot at 5:30 and no AI inspector this time. Have not seen them for quite awhile now.... Water temp was 78. Panfish were caught on simple Jig/plastic in about 12 feet along shoreline weeds. Walleyes on spinner/crawlers in 17-20 on midlake structure.

      Berserker Bass.   This is probably the most exciting hit I have ever had from a bass.   Had to slow it down to get the full effect .Berzerker bass video

      Have not fished down there but up river a little way in the Ramsey area I have been doing well on smallies Either trolling raps up river bouncing of the bottom or drifting down pounding the shorelines with meps spinners.   Meps are one of my favorite lures for the river that and buzz baits.   The Mississippi is fun because you have a chance at catching anything.

      Im wanting to go and fish the missisippi river by my place, there is a little inlet with some down trees, a drop off  and a little bridge that goes over the inlet. Its off of east river road at the end of 79th.  I believe its called riverview heights park. My questions is, has anyone gone fishing there? I see people there quite often and have chatted with them a little bit, but haven't gotten much out of them. It looks promising for some largemouth and catfish. if you have fished there what works good? and are they biting now? I will be there at about 5 am tomorrow morning.
