Had fun hunting with fwp last weekend. He was pretty good at getting around the lake in the dark ( thanks to electronics ) I loved to watch the dogs work. I was the only one without a dog. Even had a good shoot with a couple other guys and I think fwp knows who I am talking about. Out of Morson is where we hunted. Lotsa birds. I was up there for the weekend and took my limit home. Not sure how the flight is on the U.S side though. I have a friend heading out in the morning so hopefully he will give me a report. Good luck

Just got back yesterday. Hunted the Swift Ditch area. 5 guys took 25 birds in 3 days of hunting. All puddle ducks except 2 Bull Cans. Green wing teal, Mallards, and Gadwalls. The water is very low and we broke ice two of the 3 days we hunted to put the decoys out. I would say most of the migration is past here or isn't going to happen.

If you plan on hunting the swift area bring a shallow boat with paddles or a good set of waders. You can't run a motor in there do to the shallow water.

Saw a fair amount of Snows and Blues in the area.

Hope this helps.

      What's your fish of choice to pursue? A weekday fish you could find after work are crappies, the basin bite on your local lake/lakes could make for a fun night bite. Panfish in general are fun to chase anytime, northerns are fun to target too but that's more of a weekend thing until we start gaining more daylight. Walleyes are punks to me and I've never been patient enough to target them unless I'm on LOW or Upper Red lol.

      How do you even get on this lake to ice fish?  Seems to be surrounded by Private land.

      Well Friday was a little slow picked up some nice gills here and there no crappies. Sat morning picked up a couple 10 inch gills and a couple more for the bucket here and there. Sat night 930 the crappies came through I caught 17 biggest was 12. Sunday picked a few more gills up for the bucket before heading off to a different lake for walleye. again fish wanted nothing to do with minnows only caught one with them. All other fish caught on a tungsten orange and green glow tipped with only a wax worm.   we were in 12 fow the sunfish were 2 off the bottom crappie cruising 4 off bottom Side note tried walleye tonight missed 3 of them! Now I remember why I don't walleye fish much stupid things

      I had the showdown as a hole hopping sonar but found I used my LX5 a lot more.  I went to the 7 and did not like it because it was bulky and hard to get used to both hopping holes and room inside one man Frabile.  Sold the 7 and bought another LX5 and do not see me going back to any other.  I have a wheel house and found is the only time I used the 7.  If you do a lot of fishing outside and like to move around.  I would stick with the 5, I now own two of them and don't see me using anything else.
