3 posts in this topic

I went out saturday and sunday. I had at least 2 flocks come into me both days. but they flair I think its because of the blinds. My friend Pete said to just lay in the feild and put corn stalks on top on me and see if they will come in. Also I check out this other spot and I saw at least 40 mallards land there. So tomorrow moring I am going out to get some mallards and I will put out some 2 goose decoys because I have seen a few loners. grin.gif

But sometimes they are dumb too! smile.gif

For most of the duck hunting season, we were hunting with a dozen GHG floaters in addition to our duck spread and nearly every loner goose or pair expressed interest. The loners would usually lock up and float all the way in with no calling. Bang! Gotta love that!

I got a dozen of the G+H floaters last year and I really think they help. Like hanson said every lone goose or pair gives us a good look even if they don't come in.

      My buddy has the 5 w/GPS. When you combine it with a lakemap chip it's a really sweet set-up for ice fishing as you can pinpoint spots on lakes and mark your location for the next time you're out.  I don't know anything about the sonar vs. flasher issue or if there is a slight delay. All I know is I want one.   Also, there are down imaging and side imaging versions available, and ones with and without GPS. Be sure you take that into consideration when you're shopping. I've gotten excited about some pretty good deals I've seen on the Helix 5, only to realize it doesn't have GPS. If you're going to use your for ice fishing I think you would want the GPS version.

      Whenever I want to take a kid out fishing and keep them entertained, then I always go to Kelly Dudley.  In the summer, it is impossible not to catch a steady stream of sunfish.  I have never tried it in the winter, but suspect it would be a good place to keep an eight year old busy.   If you go out, make absolutely sure to bring ice cleats.   There is an indoor fish camp going on in Faribault this weekend.  http://www.maxsolutionsonline.com/cityoffaribault/Customer/ActivityDetail.aspx

      Are you looking for this summer?   Are you looking for cabin type resorts, camping, tent/RV?   Here is a place to start:   http://business.parkrapids.com/list/category/resort-cabin-327   I live in the area so haven't spent to much time at different resorts but I've always liked R&D Resort on Straight Lake in Osage, MN which is only 8 miles from Park Rapids. Isle O' Dreams is another very cool place to stay.

      Lots of water on the ice now where people have their houses. Took my house off yesterday and the plowed roads were pretty slushy already.
