Woo hoo my first band, plus a hunting report

Recommended Posts

Ely Lake Expert

We were on our annual hunt at Lac qui parle last weekend and I got my first goose band. The goose was 12.8 lbs, I haven't called the # yet to get the tagging info. The cool thing was it had a band on each leg. One leg had a serial number and a phone number to call for info. The other leg had a band that said reward $100. The CO I talked to said to ask where to send it when I call for info on the other band and they will send me a check for $100. It is the sweetest $100 I have ever made. grin.gifgrin.gif

Now for the report, 6 of us got 9 geese and 18 pheasants over 2 and half days. Not bad for my pointer puppies first pheasant hunting ever. I sure can't wait to go back again next year cool.gifgrin.gif Now its deer hunting time grin.gif

If you don't need the money you will get. Turn around and give to a conservise club like Ducks umlimed or delta waterfowl. To help the ducks out. laugh.gif

      Hi all. I'm a newbie. And Iowan, but I love everything Minnesota. Ice Fishing is a short season here. I'm down by cedar rapids. Girlfriend and I are going to faribault this weekend to try some lakes. Any tips would be appreciated. I honestly don't keep many walleye back here, we imposed our own 17 in to 24 in all we keep standard. And it's helping the River in our area. At Least we think so.  Anyway, we're just looking for some good walleye and Pike action any bonus panfish too. If you could give us some legit pointers . That would make an awesome trip. Thanks again. Tight lines God too many beers . We only keep 17 to 24 inch eyes

      First Welcome to FM, They definitely can be caught during the day but the water is really clear usally on that lake and I have found over the years of fishing it that the evening into the dark bite can be way better. Don't rule out trying to target those fish you saw.  Some options are fishing  on a cloudy day, or try down sizeing your presentation as you may surprise yourself and put a few topside.

      Electrical tape for me nice and smooth. If your worried about the residue at the end of the season a little tip is rub  toothpaste on the cork work it around then wash in water.  Cleans them up takes the scum off and they look good as new when done.
