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.

      Del, We only got about 1/2 inch of snow but more snow and rain is predicted for Sunday and maybe Monday. Only 22 degrees for a high here yesterday! 39 degrees now and supposed to get to 50 degrees today. Crazy spring! Probably still frost in the ground in most areas. Cliff

      Hello Everyone, May is just a few days away and I'd love to see how the water is warming this Spring through Summer... Can we start a thread with daily water temps? Date: East side or West side: Location: Temp:   I'll be there June 10th! Thanks, ~Tripp in ATL

      Not a fishing report, but a question....   Is the frost out of the ground yet?   Bringing some stuff up to the cabin and wondering about water lines and stuff freezing and all that.   I see the forecast is for the 50's next week..     How much snow did you all get?

        I keep and eat fish also.  I was just reacting with a snide remark to a tone of "I want some fish to eat, got any spots" that perhaps was unintended .   If so, I apologize.    Many of the streams in SE Minnesota are populated primarily with native brown trout, and the DNR information is reasonably reliable.  There was a major kill in summer 2015 on the very popular south branch Whitewater river and I don't know how the recovery is coming along.    Cause still unknown.      Some recent info....(not about kill)   http://www.postbulletin.com/sports/outdoors/giving-nature-and-anglers-a-hand/article_dfe73b76-5cd9-520c-834f-7d4101a40b2e.html   http://www.postbulletin.com/sports/outdoors/john-weiss-trout-cooperate-for-a-fantastic-opener/article_2b106b9b-595f-5bee-8c3b-ceb761179da1.html   The DNR stocking activity is accessible from Lakefinder.   Here is the info for rainbow trout for 2016, the latest year available.  It will give you an idea of the activities.     http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/lakefind/showstocking.html?year=2016&county=&species=RBT
