My up north trip report!

1 post in this topic

Well let's just say it didn't start of too well. On Tuesday night (10-24-06) my truck was totalled because it started on fire and did extreme damage. I was able to borrow the girl friends dad's truck for the weekend. Head to Bemidji Wed. night. Hunted north of Bemidji on Thursday, got three between my brother and I (very poor shooting.) A lot of bird, mostly divers, we problably seen a thousand or so birds. Friday, not as many birds as Thursday. Friday night headed over to the Deer River area. Sat. morning hunted the Third River Flowage on Winnie, a lot of hunters, but literlly thousands and thousands of birds. There were big flocks of divers and mallards, ended up with 7 (all divers). Sat. afternoon hunted Little Cut foot, some divers, got 4 (this is between 5 guys). Sunday morning, went back to Cut Foot and shot 6 all ringnecks. While hunting Sunday Morning, we watched flocks of 100 to 300 Northern Mallards flying very high and flying south, so they are coming. All in all it was a good weekend, could have been better if the hunters could shoot better, but that is duck hunting. Well the next two weekends, I am deer hunting, so hopefully it doesn't freeze up to soon and I can get back out before the season is done. Good luck to the rest of you the rest of the season.

      You were in the right area, maybe just the wrong time.  I went out late this afternoon to see if the house my Dad has been using came through the "flood" OK and decided to drop a line when I was there. When I first dropped the hook down the hole a walleye screamed up off the bottom and slammed it 5 feet off the bottom. So out of curiosity I just sat there and jigged 4 to 5 feet off the bottom and they kept coming up and slamming it. They never touched the dead stick that was set 1 foot off the bottom.  All I can think of is that with the snow cover gone they could really see something up against the sunlight. I hadn't seen the walleyes that aggressive all winter.  maybe it was because I was fishing in a hole about 20 inches wide due to the water running down it.   No I don't think so cuz I have a big roll of duct tape and a bunch of white sheets. I'll wrap me, the Jeep and the dog in white sheets. We'll be just like ghosts.  OOPS, just remembered that the snow is all gone. I really think that after all the years we each could stick a pin in a lake  map guessing where the other one would be and we would each be within 1/4 mile. From his description fishing tech was right on the eastern edge of your favorite area.

      What needs to be in the boat, to be legal to fish Superior. I've been trying to find it in the book with no luck.
