Just a few hours ago while enjoying a beverage on deck I was pleasantly suprised to whitness 2 dozen or so odd wild turkeys march across my bow heading up river and up the beach. Organized by hieght they went single file, slowly intent on some destination known only to the most senior of urban turkey society. Never have I seen even 1 one venture this close to the denaturalized zones. There leader must be very persausive indeed. Just thought I'de share.

That's cool Kobanon. I saw at least a dozen near the mouth of the Minnesota about a week ago. I also saw some otters swimming around Pike Island. I've never seen them around there before, have you?

Since your talkin turkeys, I had 8 with two toms, one really nice bearded one, and 6 hens. But what makes this so odd is that I live in the heart of east St. Paul. We only have about an acre behind our house and the and the apartment buildings and the last two days they have been browsing. Waiting til sun up to see if there still there today.

I saw a flock of turkeys along side of I494, just east of the Mississippi River, a couple of weeks ago. They were just feeding on the side of the hill.

      Most likely our last trip up this year unless we go up for crappies but i'm running out of weekends. We had another great trip this weekend the fish are so fat this year more than I remember in the past.  Got my old man out for a good walleye bite he had a blast and caught a ton of fish. One day they just attached the bait as it was coming down they would come up and smash. Next day you put in the bottom and not even see the lure on the vex bring up a tad and they would smack it. Fun and a lot of snow hitting yesterday when we left.

      Agreed!!

      Switch to regular Budweiser and they seem to just jump out of the hole. No, seriously the way I improved my landing success through the ice was to go to small treble hooks. One small one on a 6' leader, a weight and Colorado blade above the leader seems to work for me. If you are on the flag right away, you don't risk gut-hooking them. I also recycle my Power Pro musky line and put it on tip ups. Also, I should add that I always  have a jaw-spreader and 8" forceps for quick and easy hook removal.

      Funny...seems like when the Emerald run slowed down up there 4-5 years ago, the fishing followed suit!
    • anyfishwilldo
      they only ran for a couple days.  They have them on the canadian side but its illegal to transport live bait across the border

      Cliff - much more than the 4-6" they were predicting.  It was a tired drive back to Blaine late Saturday night, but would have been a much tougher drive back Sunday.

      Tough to follow Ricks Gilly Gilly, but might as well get it out of the way.... My best one today, was a grind until prime time, then the bite was lights out until 6pm. I couldn't pull myself away from my hole....

      Green was ok for me I used all kinds of baits. Nothing would bite before it got dark. I caught some on plastics, waxies, and minnows were hot. I was in 27-28 feet. It was nice to sit in the house as I normally do not fish in it.

      Nice fish Paul, persistence usually pays off..... What worked to put those good ones on the ice? Any tips on structure, depth, time of day? And of coarse coordinates,
