No Ice

4 posts in this topic

Out around Alexandria area there is no ice left on any waters including small ponds. It was about 70+ today and no ducks to be seen, but that should change with the NW winds starting this evening.

im working up in fergus falls around the 210 west and 94 intersection. probably saw 2500-3500 geese today. flying SE in the morning to noon time and SW in the evening. looked very tired this evening. flying in huge flocks not too high and very eager to land in the tilled corn fields. last tuesday i ran up on a flock of around a couple thousand in a field about 3 miles nw of 210 and 94. could be an awesome hunt if you could get permission from the farmers.

just a little fyi for all you guy. if wasnt up here working id definately be out in the fields myself

Up around here there are lots of honkers around. The swamp i hunt has at least 2-3000 honkers good 100 snows and 5-700 mallards. Got 2 honkers and 2 mallards the yesterday, and tried to pass shoot them this morning but they were to high. Paddled through slushy ice to get to them. Didnt have lots of time or i would easyly gotten my 4 mallards. The geese were loners that tryed to land on my decoys, one greater and the other was about the size of the mallards so musta been a cackler. With the weather forecast for here i dont expect them to move on anytime to soon.

      With only like 2 weeks to ago who chomping at the bit to sit in the blind. I woke up this morning to vivid dream of two double gobbling toms working into my spread. In my dream my nephew got trigger finger and blasted my hen decoy.

       It looks like a great ride. Looks a lot more stable than a kayak is well. If you headed over to Little Elk Lake and you should find the gills and crappies in the boat channels.

        Check out my ride for the early season back water.  Took it out Saturday for a spin and a few casts.  Need some warmer Temps and the sheet of ice to move were I intended to go.
