Goose numbers were way up this weekend. I think the fall migration is in full swing.

The last week we have seen thousands of ducks -- on Saturday -- not as many. That figures.

A buddy of mine shot a four-curl drake and breasted it. What a dummy. I would love to put that on the wall.

I just sold a fish house (not my only one though, I'm not nut's tongue.gif) and picked up 6 dozen goose decoys (32" magnums, magnets, floaters, Northwinds,ducks). Got a used laydown blind coming on Friday and have lot's of cover but I've been to busy to find a place to go in MN and get permission so I can use them. If someone's got a place to go, I'd be happy to team up with you on a hunt. Let me know. ScottND at arvig dut net or 701.371.5093

      Whatever it takes to open the ring enough to get the process started.  I've just found I have a lot more control over the process with a couple small pliers and fewer pokes in the finger tips.   I've even been known to use the pliers for other things but I'm kind of creative that way.

      1-24-17 Fishing Report The fishing in the 30-33 feet of water range has been producing several limits of 14-17 inch Walleyes and Saugers with a few smaller yearlings in the mix as well. We have also seen a few perch around the 12 inch range as well as a few tulibees and pout coming up the holes. The fish have been biting more timidly so patience before setting the hook is a must. A plain red hook on a dead stick continues to produce a decent number of fish as well as using smaller jigging spoons,rattle spoons,buck shots and stop signs with glow in the dark pink,green,blue and gold being the effective colors. The hot times for the bite seem to be between 10 am-4 pm with a decent number of bites being reported between first light to 10 am. The bite in the 16-20 feet of water range has cooled off a bit with a few keepers still being brought up mixed in with a handful of yearlings. The flashers continue to be a highly recommended tool up here on LOTW as there remains to be a decent number of suspended fish being seen.  Good luck fishing on beautiful Lake of the Woods!
