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.

      For details fished 18 to 21 feet of water away from the city on ice. The bait that the fish preferred was again the smallest pug bug with black maki mino or white. Red, watermelon, shiner, and pink did not work. The snitch was able to detect the lightest bites as my dad was use a blue ice noodle and was not having any luck. Once I got my dad to switch to one my meat rigs it was game on. He was using a older st. croix legend with white custom jigs spins 3mm tungsten jig. He was adding a waxworm and caught a few fish but I was still out fishing him 10 to 1 or more. I did get 8 gills over 9 inches which was great to see for this lake.
