How is the harvesting looking for the opener? Anyone seeing any corn coming down yet?

I have been seeing tons of birds all around the last couple weeks while duck and dove hunting. For crops the beans are pretty much done. A lot of corn fields are being started in between New Ulm and St. Peter. I've seen a few fields that are out.

I would say corn would be no more than 10% done. Beans more like 80-90% done. It will be a later year for the corn as the elevators are very limited in storage and some apparently aren't even wanting corn yet... Best hunting will be November and later.

Yup. Plus with the market prices being what they are, a lot of farmers will try and keep the corn in the field to dry.

Leave the corn up as far as im concerned, With the high numbers of birds being reported and with that more hunters out there alot of birds could go down the first few weekends.

Call me selfish but I'd be happy if the corn is in till the end of October, but around here and I justed asked my buddy sitting next to me in class and they are done with beans and starting corn tomorrow as is almost everyone around him he said. That is NE of New Ulm.

I don't get much hunting done till football is over in November, hopefully the end of November, so the more birds around when the snow flies and the sloughs freeze up the better.

      Hey! Does anyone know any brooks/steams/rivers that would be full of trout? Preferably near lakeville, mn but ill travel!

      Nice fish, Jeff. And good lesson on 1/2 crawlers, Cliff. I'm off the water for a few days with family doings, but should report I've seen a lot of mayflies in Frazer and near the portage. Clouds on the sonar and slicks of the water. I'm guessing it's not the big hatch, but it's providing a lot of food for fish. good luck out there.

      Just got back into town from a slightly too long "vacation" dealing with relatives. Anywho, how has the fishing been on Superior, are the fish local or have they migrated N.E?

      I just bought a new Elite 7TI and the sun cover it came with doesn't really snap on very securely.  I'd say it just rests loosely on the outside.  It won't fall off if I flip it upside down, but it feels like it wouldn't stay on going down the highway or withstand any sort of jarring.  It takes hardly any pressure to pull it off.  Is this normal or is it a defect?  I've never owned a graph with a sun cover so I'm not familiar, but I imagined it would be a lot more snug.

      I have a Lowrance Elite 7 and was curious what lake chip most of you recommend for Lake of the Woods.  The insight pro chip that came with my unit is very basic for up there and was looking for a more detailed chip.  I'm not sure what brands are compatible with the Lowrance and which ones aren't.        Thanks in advance!

      Glad it didn't take a swim. My buddy had one of the cheaper Minnkotas deploy while he was up on plane using the main motor.  Needless to say it was a weak pin in the release system. It was a rental boat so he didn't have to deal with it. Bent the heck out of the stem portion. It was fully modified!   Didnt know now you were still going up to LOTW. Thought you were selling the place. Assuming you don't have the Sportcraft anymore since I don't think you'd put a Minnkota on that. If you still have the Sportcraft I know someone that might be interested in it.    I head up to South end out of Wheelers point tomorrow after work. Up for 2 weeks. Touch base with me if you are coming up or have the Sportcraft still for sale.   Ryan

      Thanks for the information. I believe yours must be different by the sounds of it. Mine looks like the one below. A bolt actually goes through the pin and bolts onto the actual trolling motor and you have to pull the lever completely out to remove it from the boat.

      Crawlers work great for a mixed bag of fish.  Fresh cut bait like suckers or shad work great for channel cats.  I've never fished North Lake in Red Wing. Have fun!
