fun float

2 posts in this topic

went on a canoe float yesterday... what a fun day. We brought a predator call and 2 .22's. The water has receded about 3' since the high water from snow melt. We didn't see any fox or 'yotes, no coons or skunks. But did I ever wish that it was duck opener again. We saw hundreds of mallards and geese. Some around every bend. THere were also many buffleheads and hooded mergansers. The pheasants surpised me. We had to have seen 40 hens, but... We only saw 2 rooster's. I thought that was strange, just part of their habits this time of year. Not sure but w/ the polarized glasses I saw many fish. Mostly suckers and chubs; but there were definetly a few brown trout that I saw. River changed quite a bit from last year. New downfalls, a new portage, and a couple different eddies. Some downfalls made some very nice holes to fish. I know where I'll be for Trout and Duck openers this year. I wish I could have had a shotgun and a rapala or 2 yesterday. What a blast, I would reccomed a float down your local stream on the warm days coming up.

now THAT sounds like a good idea! I have been meaning to do just what you did for a long time now, but get caught up in so much else this time of year. I know what you are saying about the pheasants, but I have seen the opposite-tons of rooties, but few hens. Gonna be a great year for them this fall.

      I'm thinking the same thing!  When will I get another chance to target walleyes and bass with a long rod in February!

      Was up yesterday.  Tried going out of Stoney Point the sand landing is undo able ice ridge out a ways and did not see any tracks going out.  The boat launch has a pressure ridge in front and looked like ATV were following the ridge  toward the point.\ There were two trucks out there no idea how they got there.  we finally went out of Pine Point.  Ice conditions are perfect. No slush no water on the road,   You cannot get out to the trench from here ice heave between. We drilled some holes and a lot of  5 inch perch. When we were going out we asked if the tullies were biting,and he said no  not yet Seems to shallow out any where out there. The was in excellent shape as a lot of wheel houses were coming out.  4 wheel drive was not used all day.  Ice cleats would have been nice to have.Hope this helps

      Most of the mercury pollution in our lakes is from rain.  That's why lakes deep in the back country also have consumption advisories.
