Goose Flagging on water?

2 posts in this topic

Anybody ever tried flagging geese while on water?

A couple of the spots we hunt, we wade around in the rushes/cattails and then duck into the cattails when birds are around.

I just got to thinking that flagging may be beneficial in a situation like this. You could either use a regular goose flag or get one on a longer handle like an extendable push pole handle.

This is our first fall really hunting geese on the water, finally got enough dekes to turn some heads up in the sky.

Good idea? Bad idea?

Chris,

We've been doing it for a number of years on the water. I think we started with a black shirt and have since graduated to kites. The only problem with it is when you get them wet, and everything gets wet duck hunting. They don't look very good then, sunny days in particular.

They're good for turning distant larger flocks. It doesn't neccesarily mean you'll land them. However, they are lethal on small groups and singles. It's worth a try.

      Should I look for the cats more in deep holes now or more in shallow by bridges etc. Don't want your spot just general info. I know they can be any where but I'm thinking deep? Also would fat heads be a good choice now.

      Well my ice season ended, it was an extremely short year, with not alot of opportunity to get out. Still caught some good fish and had some good times with friends, enjoy the video!

      I'very never heard of anyone getting into them.  But I do see them cutting the surface early morning or evening.  Might be able to get a few on a fly rod.

      There's a few really good cat spots in that stretch.  It won't be long and it will all be open.
