stupid me had to go and promise to take three guys pheasant hunting on saturday; now i want to back out on them or at least make them wait...too many ducks and geese flying around to even make me notice a pheasant. oh well it should be a quick hunt for roosters anyways saturday; maybe i can sneak out early; setup for my field hunt; leave the blind @ 8:55; shoot my roosters @ 9:02; get back to the blind by 9:08; and hopefully not miss a flock of ducks or geese!

well its official. after hunting this morning with my buddy on his slough i am making the neccessary phone calls to tell the pheasant hunting buddies to sleep in or hunt without a dog and me cuz its goose hammering tomorrow morning for sure. we just locked up two cornfields that are going to be black dirt come tuesday and they almost appear black in the mornings right now due to the huge numbers of geese and mallards working the fields. hopefully i can get some pictures posted tonight for you guys to see.

Pheasant opener was good. Wow, there sure were alot of hunters out. The best part of the day were the deer brats on the grill at noon. Umm, that hit the spot.

West Nile is wiping them out. Found numerous dead birds over the weekend.

Coming up in a couple weekends to try and get some birds to fly... A friend has land outside of Montevideo, did the "not many birds" trend apply there too on opener? I hope not, cuz it'd be fun to get some roosters to fly!

The second weekend was much nicer than the first. There were fewer hunters. It must have been that West Nile thing or something or that when the birds got up in the wind it was like shooting at a rocket. I cooked up some out standing lunches. ( deer brats, pheasant strips, deer chislic (sp)) All wrapped in a tortilla. It was a tortilla theme this weekend. I did the strips and chislic in peanut oil. I told the Mrs. we gotta start eating healthier. I topped everything with melted cheese and a little ranch dressing. Ummm that was good. I shoot better after a good lunch. I carry all my cooking stuff in the old perchmobile. She's taken on the firetiger look the past couple of years with a mixture of red, white, streaks of rust, brown, and green. I bet if we get a good smooth clear freeze on the lake this year she might attract fish just by being parked on the ice. I'm taking ideas for next weekend's menu.

Let me know when you would like a meal and I'll see what I can work out. The mrs. has kept you on a short leash lately. I haven't heard much from you. Load the family up and come on over and I'll cook. The ice season is getting closer. So far, I think I'll only be able to get one big trip in this winter. The mrs. has a short leash on me too.

      Nice fish and plenty of them is what has been happening this week. Almost as many slots as keepers.  We have been jigging but pulling spinners or cranks works great too. One of the attached pics is what is showing up in the deep mud, mostly Saugers now but more Walleyes and tons more fish piling in the next few weeks. Joe Paradis from Plummer Mn out with me this morning behind the fish board and, from Thursday fishing buddy Mike Lindholm with the biggest, fattest, best looking 25 incher I have seen in a while. Having plenty of fun fishing in the wind

      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.
    • delcecchi
      It spit her out after the first bite..
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      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.
