Goose City!

7 posts in this topic

I'd never been to Rochester before until my girlfriend started PT school there this fall. This morning I was driving home north on 52 and all I can say is WOW, there were geese everywhere. They were on both sides of the highway as far back in the corn fields as I could see and the sky was full of them too! I kept waiting to see some dropping out of the sky but didn't see or hear anyone shooting. Why is that?? To sum it up guess I'm just jealous of the number of geese you have in this area. Good luck to all hunting them.

Tippman,

I moved up to Oronoco and was sick of seeing them flying over so I finally got off my butt and asked permission to hunt the field behind my house. Guy was perfectly fine with it. Since it is by some houses, I introduced myself to the closest ones and explained what I would be doing and that the 500 foot minumum distance would be followed.

Here are the results

Gotta eat some since I got one Wed night also and now I have my posession limit in the freezer. Maybe give some to my buddy to smoke.

So many geese passed/missed also. First time out in 9 years but the convenience of hunting right behind my house was just too much to pass up.

You like my real hardwoods camo for hunting in the corn field? I should probably go get some different stuff.

Hey Tippman...I know that this is a bit off topic, but I was wondering if you could tell me more about your girlfriends PT school (at the clinic I assume). I plan on going back to school shortly and PT is what I was leaning towards. Please send me an email to chaddjurg@hotmail.com

Thanks,

Chad

      Thanks for the update.  Keep this updated.  Heading up on Saturday for the week and need to dial in the bait for the week or if we are going to be spending all day looking for active fish.

      Been a decent year on Kab, but the variable weather has fishing in an unpredictable pattern too. Much like last year, saugers have made up a big chunk of the catch, but walleyes are coming around. LOTS of small 9"-11" 'eyes around mixed with some 15"-16" 'eyes and sauger. Some folks are still picking up some of the jumbo perch too. Little pike are everywhere and quite the nuisance.

      You kind of hit the weather bad this past weekend.  Wind, rain, and more wind not to mention cold fronts moving thru.  I was on the lake my cabin is on in the general area of Red and I had a tough time scrapping together a meal - and I've fished the lake for 15+ years.  Sometimes mother nature throws you a curve and no matter how good the lake is sometimes it doesn't matter.

      Looks like a Namakan fish.

      Hit the lake before 6:00 this morning. Fishing very slow again. Lots of mayflies on the water. Water 64 degrees. Got a bass at first stop but no more of those. ABout 5 walleyes and four pike in nine hours. Quit just in time to fight the 22 MPH wind (twice what was predicted) all the way home. Fish in 25 FOW. Most on Fin-S-Fish. numerous missed bites. Yesterday hardly missed a one. Not so today.   June 27, 2017 video link

      Froggin is a blast! I couldn't get any topwater action Saturday but just under the surface with a spinnerbait they were crushing it. Early morning it was suspending jerkbaits on weedlines. Not a single swirl on top.

      The walleye bite the past couple days has gone from Boom to  almost Bust! There have been a couple of huge May fly hatches the last couple of nights along with a large Rusty Crayfish molt that have been making catching walleyes a real challenge! We are still getting some fish but now have to earn every fish! Lindys with 1/2 crawler fished VERY slow in 18" to 30" depths has been my best presentation. Cliff

      Thanks guys!  We tried kayak fishing last year (around Labor Day I think) and the Rum was way too high.  We launched on CR 7 between Blue and Green lake and just ended up paddling the river.  Is that a good stretch for smallies?
    • ANYFISH2
      wow, that is one dark walleye!

      And no reports make forums no good. Participation is what makes this place great.   Do not discourage that!
