Hey Uncle Bill, I would have sent you a private message but I can't figure out how!

Have you been seeing any grouse in your neck of the woods lately? I have a place on West Rush and usually tromp around the public stuff along the croix looking for ruffies. I'll be up every weekend in October doing the cast and blast thing.

FYI there was a Fishers of Men bass tourney on Rush last weekend and the winners brought in 5 bass for 24+ lbs! There big one was 6.89...WOW!

Thanks,

Ferny.

Ferney,

I have not seen many grouse around my area.

I'm somewhat surrounded by hay fields and pasture.

Could be the grouse are back in, or near the woods.

I have seen alot more pheasant this year, compared to past years. Alot of deer too.

6.89# bass !!.... Sheesh!

I don't fish for Bass, (except on the river) but even a non Bass fisherman has to be impressed with that.

Good luck,

Unc.

Thanks for the info!

I went out Sunday morning for a couple hours. I flushed 1 within 50 yards of the truck and missed it. I thought it was going to be awesome and never saw or heard another one. I did flush one woodcock but I don't shoot those anymore since the breast is so small. It was a great day to be out! I'll be back up this coming weekend trying for a doe (early doe season) with my kids in my turkey blind...any suggestions on a spot? I tried a spot last year and had 4 others for company nearby so I was a little concerned about our safety!

Thanks,

Ferny.

Oops, I forgot to add that I agree with you about the pheasants. I saw quite a few this weekend.

Ferny,

If you're asking me about State owned property, I don't know of any. Sorry.

      Been a brutal hard water season for me as well, figured it was a continuation of my fall fishing luck.

      Thanks guys.  I checked out Modis for ice coverage and Navionics to help understand how things are laid out.  Knowing what areas certain fish prefer and those typical depths is a big plus.

      My wife and I are hoping to get up to Mille Lacs this Saturday and spend the night on the ice.  Does anyone have any last minute availability?  All the resorts I've contacted are booked. Thanks!

      Lots of nice fish!  Central Mn is cranking out some nice panfish.

      Great Idea Rick

      A plus is that the forecast is for a much nicer day Saturday.

      Thanks for your work guys! You were showin' some serious team spirit being out there today. I would have helped but I had a few appointments today I couldn't reschedule. I know I'm available Friday to do any last day scouting/fine tuning....

      Definitely a grind out prefishing cats today for the gathering.  Weather made it to tough but I Jeff  and his brother pushed through the elements to try and find a few active schools .   Locating the schools were tough took a pile of holes and the augers got a workout for sure,  but fortunately  we did find a couple active schools. Jeff and his brother found a few on one lake and I found a decent school on another lake. The good news was that both schools were cruising shallow flats in both locations and about the same depths. Great news as this is a good indication they are feeding on these flats.   Amazeingly both schools were found on a inside corner. Bingo looks like we have a pattern formed. We iced and marked  a fair number of cats in both locations so things are looking good for Saturday. Plus is we added a few for the fish fry already  Jeff I'll keep plugging away out there hopefully I can dial them in even more I have a hunch there are a few more close by where we ended.
