Anyone hunt Lake of the Woods for opener?

3 posts in this topic

Did anyone hunt the big lake for opener? I was wondering if there are any ducks around up there. I will be going in the morning to start the season down here.

We go up there and hunt geese mainly, but we shoot a few ducks too in the fields and whatnot. As far as the lake shore, it can get crowed, there are some good spots to hunt though. Our biggest problem has been getting the boat of the water. We have always had a strong wind blowing right into the spot where we wanted to hunt, and by stron wind I mean there were two to three footers out there. My buddy has a video of me wading out into the wild rice to see if I could pass shoot a few divers that were buzzing over. Well, needless to say I took one over the waders, and that was enough of that. I have always seen lots of ducks there though, in fact my uncle is there right now hunting ducks and geese. I will post tomorrow evening and let you know how he did.

Take Care and Good Hunting!!

We hunted it last year for a couple of days and had ducks every day. We hunted the morris point and four mile bay area...seems like everyday that we were out there the ducks were in the decoys before our guns were out. The wind and waves did make it quite tricky though. Lots of fun and can't wait to get back up there this year.

      Hi all, I just want to askl if someone ever tried using shrooms or truffles for medical purposes? I was reading some articles about this magic truffles and shrooms before engaging my self for the first time. They say that it has a very potent effect on the brain and hallucination. Unlike marijuana does it have any medical use? In one article that I've read magic truffles or shrooms are use on reducing the symtoms of obsessive-conpulsive disorder, anxiety, and depression. It can also help people to quit smoking and alcohol addiction. Some studies also suggest the property of magic shrooms/truffles can be useful for cancer patients. I would really want to hear other insights regarding this new possible alternative meds. Thanks

      I literally just watched an episode of Linders Angling Edge where they echoed exactly what SkunkedAgains quote claimed.

      Went out yesterday in between honey dos.  First sunny day in several days.  Hooked up on a good sized bunch of brown fish in 5 FOW.  They were enjoying warmer water, 55F, on a chunk rock spot. Caught the females first with the largest around 4 lbs then a few smaller males came to the boat.  All caught on plastics.  Went back out late after the last chore to catch an eye for supper.  No luck on eyes but the pike enjoyed a few minnows.
