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

      If you haven't read it yet, a couple of slobs are about to ruin it for the rest of us. Pick up your garbage and respect private property. The land owners who allow access to the lower sucker river are about to shut it down because they are so fed up with it. http://minnesotasteelheader.blogspot.com

      With the wind being fairly strong today I opted to hit the back waters of Little Rock. Have done goid there in yrs past.... so I figured it would be worth a shot. Finding crappies was pretty easy, they were holding tight to the brush and downed trees. Finding crappies over 8inches was tough...lol.  I don't think I broke 9inches. But did manage one big carp. Guessing right around 30in, pulled me and the yak all over the lake before I got it boat side

      Hit the one down by Watkins a couple times this winter. There were a lot of people that fished it this last winter. Got gills and crappies of all different sizes. If your looking for keeper size fish, other area lakes will provide better numbers. Haven't been on the other one of  in a few yrs. There were good numbers of 6-7in sunfish if I remember right.

      Looking to get a different depth finder for my boat, one with GPS and side imaging. I have $650 to spend, and have found a new Helix 7 SI and a used 998c SI HD with about 800 hours on it.  They both are $600.  Which one would you get and why?   Thanks!
