This evenings grouse hunt.

4 posts in this topic

I made it out to canosia this afternoon. Right after the rain the grouse were out. I kicked up four in about an hour, then after that it went stale. confused.gif Still alot of foilage in the woods. Those grouse pulled a disappearing act quick. The one that I did get though had about a six inch tail fan, real nice male. Forgot how pretty they are!!

Anyhow, does anyone know how much pressure boulder lake wma gets. I was out there the other day and walked the whole trail system and saw one bird. confused.gifconfused.gif I am sure that its a good place, but I must have hit it at a wrong time.

I am still learning about the places to hunt in the duluth area. Hopefully I will have a great report for you guys after Sunday.

Hmmm, I always done well at BLMA. The trails are well traveled. Step off of the m and look for a mixed forest area with plenty of mid age aspen and you should see some

Some of those areas do get alot of trail pressure. That is particularly true of canosia, boulder, and buzz ryan. If I hunt one of those areas, I either do it first thing in the morning when I know that I am the first one through on the trails or I will venture well off the trails and hunt in the woods. If you get off the trails, it doesn't really matter. If I want to hunt trails in the afternoon, I usually venture further out of town and hit trails that are unlikely to have been covered. Good luck

      Are walleyes even native to vermilion? Pretty much every lake in northeast Minnesota had walleyes introduced to them in the last 50 to 100 years. If walleyes weren't native to vermilion, saugers certainly wouldn't have been native either. Sauger numbers seem to shrink the farther east each lake gets from Rainy Lake.

         Gentlemen, hope things go well this weekend. I, on the other hand, GET to go to St. Cloud for a surprise birthday party for my MIL. I know you all are jealous..

      So it was a legit test then. Yum maple syrup nothing better! Stay safe if you venture out. Things are getting sketchy.

      What are you using the rod for?  Bass if so what lures are you going to be using, the reason I ask is that if you're using a Jig you're going to want to up your line weight to something like 17#.  You mentioned that you're new to baitcasting, a couple of tricks I used when I was first learning to cast to help manage backlashes, is set the tensioner knob so the lure just pulls out the line, then make a long cast and pull off another 20-30' of line from the reel, place a piece of electrical tape across the spool and reel the line back in. Now the backlash will only go as deep as the tape.
