Sherburne / Stearns County Mississippi River Duck Hunting?

2 posts in this topic

Hi All-

Does anyone have any information if a guy can set up along the Mississippi River from the City of Elk River to Saint Cloud or Saint Cloud to Little Falls and do some boat duck/goose blind hunting?

Thanks

Swill,

I know alot of spots in the area your thinking about. Be careful around Elk River, there are some SNA's down there. You can get set up on some areas from Dayton all the way up to St. Cloud. Some areas are better than others, and some are easier to get to. The water level is really low, so it's best you know where you are going. I hunt the area pretty much from opener through late goose. Been setting up in the area for about 5 yrs now. I have sat out there all day and never see a bird. Other times it's better. I don't know if you have ever hunted rivers, but it's pretty unique hunting. If you want more info email me at chipkinney@yahoo.com. I'll be hitting the river durning the week and the weekend.

      I want to give an honest review of Steve and north county auto. He saw my post on here of a fisherman in need and offered his service. I looked around and could have taken my hub to get repaired at multiple places closer to me than Crystal, but decided to give another fisherman a try.    This was a perfect experience.  He was willing to meet me outside of normal business hours to accommodate my schedule. The stitch up appears totally solid (double stitched) and Steve even warranteed the repair. The price was more than fair and he's a nice guy to boot.    I'd definitely recommend this place if you're in need of canvas repair. He does a bunch of other things for the open water fisherman as well.    My apologies if this somehow violates any rules on the forum (I never looked) but my experience was a good one and wanted to pass it along.

      We did not go all the way out this weekend so I can't say for sure where 'most' were fishing.  Since you can literally go anywhere, there were no real "concentrations" of houses that I saw.  Everyone was spread out real nice except I did see quite a few houses fishing in closer to Pine, near the snowmobile trail, based on the distance (maybe a mile or mile and a half out?) I would guess they were "shallow" and not out to the basin.  Distance can be tough to judge so this is my approximation.   Some friends road sleds WAY north and were surprised that shortly after they set up a suburban came from the south and fished near them.  Like I was saying people are spread out.   Adrian's road now only goes out 11.5 vs. the 16 miles they were out a week ago.   Good Luck!

      Was on the boat Sunday got a little further past the 49 bridge. Is the 22 landing opening up at all? Anyone know how much ice is even out there? I would think we made a little.
