Skull hunt

9 posts in this topic

Well I went on another Bison skull hunt today.. I guess we did pretty well... man that was a fun time.. You would not believe what you find when you take the time to explor the sand bars. Thanks to the RP, I am able to get to the stretchs of river no one else can when it is low enough to find horns and skulls.

Wiskers - you found all those bison skulls in the river and on the sandbars?

Yeppers.. I know the areas that I have seen signs of bones in the past and when the water gets real low, these start showing up if you know where to look. Some are even still in the water. That 3D Huminbird side imaging sonar is the bomb. Not to mention the River pro to get me there. Many spots I was running through 2 inches of water.

Man fishing must be slow... grin.gif

Thats Rockin'...I need to get out and do that! I love to do that kind of thing, just never get the chance, or always have something else going on. You know how that goes!

Did you get most of those from the Red Lake River or the Red River? I found some bones while pre fishing for Cats incredible this year on the Red, but no horns or skulls.

You said you were running in water as shallow as 2" inches? Heck, you don't need a River Pro...I can "run" in water as shallow as 1" inch...Just not with my boat! grin.gif I really am going to have to get a River Pro one day when I actually have some money? wink.gif

Talk to you later.

Now that's cool! I've never thought to go looking for them- just stumbled into them on occasion. Very cool!!!

The most fun part is just taking the time to explor on the new sand bars and it would shock you what you find. Stuff that has been there for MANY of years just waiting for human eyes to gaze upon. super fun for kids, collecting rocks and all sorts of cool stuff.

The OSLO area has always been a good place to look. We've always found them in a place where it makes a big eddy during high water and eats part of the bank away after the water drops we go back and take a look. sometimes we find afew,sometimes we don't find any. lots of fun though.

      Do you typically catch quite a few overs on fish? I fished it for the first time today and we got lots of gills and a few good quality eyes...The wind made boat control a pain.

      I was up over the weekend to do cabin duties. I did get laker trout at cascade river Friday mornings it was 17 inches but made for great trout and eggs breakfast. Agree with maple bacon longjohn and Chet's doughnut. Also a must stop for me is trail center for lunch the 3 Cheese grilled cheese is amazing with a chocolate and peanut butter milkshake. Just look at this lunch

      I second Crooked Lake. Super clear water too. I kayaked in there recently and was amazed at how many sunnies are in there. First calm wind day I get I'm gonna get the yak in there and bring my flyrod.

      I woke up early Saturday tired and letting all the excuses in my head convince me to go back to bed. Cold front, high winds, clear skies. Screw it, I'm going anyway!   Glad I did. The wind was rough for yak fishing but I found them stacked right off a weedline and caught 7 bass within an hour on a stretch less than 75 yds.    Ended the day with the pig of a bass pictured and a nice Pike for dinner. Once the sun came out and warmed up the water I got action on the flats. That's where the big bass and pike came from. 8 bass total, one nice pike, a few short strikes on the flats. Wind sucked and what the heck is up with needing a sweater on the first weeked of Summer?!?! I'm not in the South anymore haha.

      Despite the occasional rain shower and relentless wind, had a great day on Fish Lake. Decent sized pan fish,  several out of slot, and 3 "eaters"  Walleyes were caught . The kids and wife all caught fish at a pace that kept me busy baiting, netting..(repeat) for a few hours. Not only was I fueling the addiction, but gaining points for future fishing trips. The only low point was when we went "Island exploring", someone was either in a hurry or just completely selfish and left their campsite garbage strewn to the point that it filled a 13 gal garbage bag.
