Duck Opener

10 posts in this topic

I was wondering where everyone is going for duck opener this year. I was thinking of going west of Mankato somewhere. Any suggestions?

I plan on hunting opener in around this area. I haven't seen a whole lot of ducks where we usually hunt, though. I have checked out a couple spots in the area, but I haven't seen anything too exciting.-Later!

If you decide to hunt locally and want a partner or two, let me know, A buddy and I might be willing to meet someone new to hunt with.

Ayup... beats the heck out of fishing any day of the week! However, that is just my opinion and you know what they say about those! Take care and N Joy the Hunt././Jimbo

Not sure what opportuntities exist for hunting in the Blue Earth, Nicollet(sp?), LeSeuer(sp?) and Rice County areas, but here in grand central Gaylord, I'll be hunting on the local lake just like the past 22 years. A lot has changed since then, but the comrodery(sp?) remains the same. Baaad spelling post here. smirk.gif

I saw three hunters standing on the bar on Gorman lake last weekend. They were in the middle of the lake 300yds from there blind(which ducks were landing in). Is this some new way to hunt ducks? grin.gif

      Finally making it up this weekend to the cabin since January.  Looks like hit and miss weather conditions over the weekend, but I'm hoping to get some decent time in the boat...as long as the father-in-law isn't cracking the whip too hard  . That's good to hear about the success in Frazier, Matt.  Always seems like we are fighting for walleyes, but I'm hoping to change that and try a few new spots this weekend.  Hope everyone has a safe and good fishing holiday weekend.

      We are from Indiana (land of terrible eye fishing). Staying in a cabin in the oak narrows June 3-10.  This is our fourth year fishing the big V, but have always fished the westside.  Never had great walleye fishing yet.  We normally stay father on the westside like around wolf Bay or Norwegian, so we wanted to find a cabin closer to the Eastside.  Figured the narrows would be closer so we can fish spots on the west side that we've already learned and also venture to the east where I've heard the walleye fishing is better for keeper walleyes.  I'm looking for any tips or locations to try.  Maybe someone could help us out.  It would be much appreciated.  Thank you

      Hi everyone I am new to this chat. I was wondering what stage you think the panfish are in right now anything helps. Thanks Luke

      There is spots in the parking lot for roughly 7 vehicles with trailers. When that's full, you can park on the side of the road leading up to the access (I don't know if it's legal but have never seen tickets given out nor have I received one). The access is fairly steep but  in good shape. A 16ft will go up/down and launch no problem. 20'+ fish houses can make it up and down.    The access on the south side (past the Bear trap) on Highway 71 has much more parking and is a flat landing with 2 docks.   Water clarity is good. Fishing is mediocre.

      Haven't tried fishing there but I would love to go there someday.

      Basskisser, You will love the lake. Compared to other sizeable lakes in MN the traffic is much lower.  Plus Vermilion has so much shoreline with great bays everywhere.  I always have a rod rigged with a Rapala DT6 in red crawdad color and another set up with a fintech jig and tube in either a crawdad brown or green pumpkin.  The Rap works great if you want to cover water and just bounce it down a rocky shoreline.  The tube is perfect for throwing under docks or submerged rocks that your sonar points out.  Good luck and have fun.  There is some great bass fishing on Vermilion.
