Weekend Report

6 posts in this topic

Well, it was opening weekend for waterfowl. Personally we saw a lot of ducks and geese early but when the season opened they had mysteriously disappeared. We ended up with one goose and a couple other opportunities for the weekend.

Saturday evening I went over to Koronis to give the walleyes a try for a few hours. I ended up catching 3 eater eyes and a couple of pike. One of the pike was a very nice one measuring 38 inches. All fish are still there as I already have a couple meals in the freezer. There were lots of boats out with the nice day. The fish seemed to start to turn on about the time I had to leave as I had an early morning appointment at the local duck slough. There were lots of shore fisherman and a few I talked to had been having some success.

So how was everyone else's weekend?

had a great time out at the cabin in the Belgrade area...my bro and I shot our limit of ducks on Saturday--mixed bag of BWT, GWT, Woodies, and Mallards

Sunday we ended up with 4 birds--a nice drake ringer, a young drake woodie, and 2 mallards (one of which had the full green head and was a giant).

Overall a great weekend to start the season. Can't wait for next weekend! Plan to get out around here once or twice this week also.

I finally made it to Koronis on Saturday. My son and I managed to catch 7 keeper walleyes, about 14-15". No big fish, just the nice keepers.

There were alot of boats out there, just a great day to be on the water.

Water temps were 57-58 degrees.

Went home about 1:00, fried up some fish for myself and Mrs. Musk.

Hit the Mississipe from about 2:30 untill sunset. Caught some smallies and a pike. Water temp was 65.5.

I was out on Lake Sarah on Saturday morning/early afternoon bass fishing. Pretty darn slow! Between my buddy and I we caught 10 largies in 4 hours. Biggest was a 4.5# pig my buddy got. Otherwise the bass were 1-1.5# average.

Beautiful day to be out!

      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.

      I remember when I first moved to MN I went down to the dam with a buncha angleworms. Coudnt keep the smallies off. LOL

      Very weird. Those little worms in the garden do catch more than little 2-4 sunfish.

      Strange indeed... Try looking for much more slack water compared to the beech you were yesterday and today. The West side of the dam was on fire this afternoon; a friend and I were in the double digits within an hour.
