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'll be out this wknd and got 3 spots to try out so still debating which one will be the ticket. The past couple weeks I've been getting some while crappie fishing.  Going to be shore fishing so FYI the water level is pretty high right now with all the rain from few weeks ago. A wader would be handy if you have one.  Good luck n be safe out there.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.

      yepper, almost 30 between the 2 of us in the slack water next to fast water. kinda hard to fish in that fast water when it's moving so fast...

      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.
