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.

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!
    • JBMasterAngler
      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.

      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.

      What kind of hand auger and shape is it in
    • LBerquist
      Heard island lake was a hot spot. Any lure that resembles a small foot should work well.

      I'd go with 112 if you have the room more power and I believe last longer on the water. I pilot is worth it. Spot lock to fan cast an area or to stay outside the dock that you just got broke off of are two benifits. I pilot link links up with your hummingbird unit if that's what you have for a depth finder. Let's you follow depth contours. Good luck with the purchases
