Deer hunting is over-rated when you have northerners in the area!

3 posts in this topic

Well boys just thought I would let you know that there are more ducks than I have ever seen before in the Int'l Falls area!! My uncle said that he has not seen ducks like this since the early eighties!!! Saturday morning there were so many ringies and scaup in the air that someone could only stare at the sky. I also have seen quite a few pinnies and cans. Of course there are lots of red heads around, but the big surprise is the amount of mallards in the area. huge flocks on northerners are everywhere!!! It is too easy to pick out drakes now. My buddies uncle is also impressed with the amount of honkers around on lake of the woods, though most are just staying for a short time. It they stick around just a little longer, I will have a chance to hook up on some november goose hunting!!! With ample rice and warm temps they are still holding in the falls area, but with colder temps during this middle of this week I don't know...

Now the hard desicion...To go out to the shack right away friday, or to put the boat in again and do some hardcore late season waterfowling. I think that duck hunting sounds like a really, really good idea!!! grin.gif

Good Luck Hunting Everyone!!

Sweet! Keep up the great reports TL. I wanna know the SECOND those birds bug out of there, 'cause I'll be headed out here when they do! wink.gif If those birds fly basically straight south, we should cross paths. grin.gif

Hunting has been awesome this year, and it sounds like it's only going to get better! I would have never guessed a year ago that there would be this many birds around this year.

      I was out there Wednesday and couldn't buy a fish. I fished two different pits and tried depths from 30 feet to 130 feet and everything in between. Marked one fish but couldn't get my lure to it in time. Second time ive tried in as many years and both times I got skunked. Using a small shiny spoon with treble hook tipped with waxies. Help!

      Fished out of long point  Friday 31 ft of water fishing wasn't fast and furious but the quality of fish was great with the biggest walleye being 18.5  three of my saugers were 16 in each. done by 2 in the afternoon with a limit. Saturday fished with a friend in same area. Was slower fishing. Maybe do to the wind which picked up quite a bit. We ended up catching 8 more nice ones with the biggest being 18 in. Very warm out  but the lake was in great shape!

      Spent all that money on shiners and suckers, and every fish I caught was on crappie minnows  go figure.

      Add a small ball at the end of the tail to add some water resistance.   Really adds additional action.
