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.

      Just got back from 2 days out of Walleye Retreat. Fishing wasn't on fire, but we ended up with a limit for 5 guys and a nice fish fry. Walleyes were 2:1 over saugers and most were in the 14-15" range. The keeper saugers were 14"-17". We fished in 29 FOW and had steady action throughout the day, with most of it being 10:00-3:00. Biggest walleyes 19 and 23 were 8' off the bottom. As others have posted, we had LOTS of lookers, who would not commit. Hottest bait was a plain red hook for deadstick and a small, gold "Slender Spoon". That caught 70% of the fish. I know others out of the resort struggled, so luck continues to be the variable.

      It really slowed down since this warm-up began last week. The fish seem more scattered now. I think they're on the move to deeper haunts. I bet it'll pick up shortly since this is a stable warm front.

      Nice work Frank. I look forward to the day that I can say that I am fishing a lake that I fished 30 years ago.
