Uncle Bill?

5 posts in this topic

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.

      Wow was it a foggy son of a gun yesterday. In a week or so the hard pack is melted down and there is a lot of slush out there. The roads turned into shallow rivers but there is still a solid block of ice in between the layers of water!  Lots of folks out there yesterday, it was hard to tell until the fog lifted. We fished in 15' of water next to a little bowl of 32' of water and it started out pretty slow. We had three 8 year old girls and they ended up making snowmen for the first hour lol.    About 4 o'clock we caught our first perch, it was a flurry after that until dark. Quite a bit of sorting to do but we kept a dozen and a half in the 9 to 10" range. We caught a few in the 11" range too.

      Lots of water and slush on the ice yesterday. Ice wasn't as thick as I thought it'd be either.  Spot I was on I marked 13".  Ended up not driving all the way to where I was going and glad I did. Walked about 1/3 mile.  Caught some perch, gills, and a 14.5" eye. Saw some larger marks moving through when I caught the 14 but just sniffers. I was in 20' bottom of a break with some deeper water near and weeds not far.
