SD Duck opener Pics...

9 posts in this topic

I'd bet a lot of you MN boys are chomping at the bit for next weekend!! We had our duck opener this weekend. We hunted a field loaded with ducks...only problem was we had about 1.5 inches of rain Friday night and Saturday. Carrying decoys out and back was miserable! OMG what a mess it was. It was a blast!!

Saturday we ended up with 11 wood ducks (one banded woody!) and 15 mallards plus 2 bonus honks... Notice the mud!!

Sunday was much more pleasant. Sunny and not near as muddy. Ended with 11 honks and 15 mallards.

Take Care All and Good Luck Hunting!

Here are a few from my opening week that a couple of us got in to. I guess I wont complain if I dont have to hunt water for a while. What a BATTLE trying to pick out drakes field huntin this time of year. There was only a couple flocks that we shot more than one bird out of all week.

      Was the bad rotator cup cause from catching to many big fish?If that's the case I'll take one for the team

      Heck of a float today!  I released 22 and biggest was just over 19.  Lotta nice sized fish.  My friend was out for the first time on the river and just 2nd time in a yak and he had a ball. Ended up with 8 after he started using my stick baits and got the hang of it.  First time up on that stretch this year.

      The walleye bite on the East end of Vermilion has been very good since the opener. Some days can be a little challenging but we have managed to limit out every day out since the opener! Not to often that that has happened! The average keeper size has been very consistent also. 14" to 16" fish most days out. Getting a few slot fish also. 26" is our biggest so far but quite a few 20" to 23" walleyes too. Lindy rigs with a glow bead and pike suckers has been my only presentation since the opener. Fish are being caught in 14' to 33' depths. Cliff

      Herky Jr. picked up a couple nice white bass, one trolling and one jigging. We turned them into delicious fish tacos!

        Yah!  The foldable ones you can.    Or, if you don't get a roof carrier you could just leave one hanging out an open window or the hatch like you're making a lumber run.

      They are BITING - bugs that is - har!   Bass have been very good some days and slooooow on others. Bugs have been awful last few trips. But the dragonflies have hatched out so they will be putting the gobble on the black flies and mosquitoes so things should improve.   Walleyes have finally showed up on the bank. Bass have been there awhile now. Went to Pelican one day and got some largemouths. The special regs there have really helped the bass fishing. Crappie are in spawning colors at several different lakes I have sampled this last week. Everything pretty much shallow but did get some walleyes in 15 FOW,
