44 posts in this topic

I will be hunting season E and will be harvesting a pretty nice bird. I just dont know whether it will be with stick & string or the faster way with the 12.

When are the rest of our group going to harvest theres?

What team name would you all like?

I will be hunting 223B and have a very good chance at getting a bird also. Right now I'm planning on using the bow for my first time. If it's not working out I may switch to gun last couple days. I'm for Super Spurs or Gobbler Guru's. We need some input from our other three members.

You should never jinx yourself with that turkey trash talking. I thought it would be Joel the KING turkey jumping in with that stuff. I would say we will just have to wait and see. I would also suggest we give those archery hunters double the points for such a great effort.

How about the BIG TOM TURKEY TAKERS

Easy......

I've eaten my trash talking before, doing some in the name of good fun, but the open mouth, insert foot gig isn't as fun when they're muddy turkey boots. smile.gif

I agree that the archery guys have it quite a bit harder. Tom, you get a gold star and an "A" for the day. smile.gif

I'm hoping they can come through with a bird a little better than helping us pick a name Tom!

I've been busy shoveling myself out of this mess over the last two days mad.gif

Harvey I'll be hunting the last weekend of April outside of Rochester near Byron. I have my grandpa doing some scouting for me and the chances are pretty good that I'll get one. They just to cooperate and walk into the decoy. Captain will take care of the rest cool.gif

I'm going to throw some off the wall names out there....Shootin' Strutters, Cacklin' Tom, Freddy Got Turkeys, Silent Jakes!

Sorry fellas, been busy with school. I will be hunting 225B. Its my third year turkey hunting, but this will be my first with a bow! Im on a couple different groups of birds, so if everything falls into place, it should be a good spring!!! I like silent jakes, but if we are all using bows it would be cool to have a name like spring stringers or something....any name will do, doesnt matter to me!

It would be neat to come up with a bow name since most of us are using them, it certainly adds a degree of difficulty into the equation.

How about The Real Turkey Takers? Much easier to do it with a gun. Or the Archery Animals? smile.gif Since turkey takers is already used we could use the other.

The Archery Animals cool.gif What you all say?

I found a really BIG tom yesterday on the road. Looks to be the tom that will beat all teams. Hopefully it will be larger than Joel's farm turkey.

I was out fishing eyes on the river today and on the way home I took a drive past my hunting spot and did like what I saw. ( turkeys were out in the area that I always hunt and no one else hunts this area. Just maybe it will be another banner year. I better not talk about it too much more or I will put the hex on myself. Cone on season E. smile.gif

I haven't been able to scout my area yet but I sure am excited too. I know there a lots of turkeys in the area.

Looks like East Rush and I will be the first of our group to see what we can do. That is unless Hawkeye speaks up and is hunting A season. I wonder when he is going to chime in anyway...

He has corn and beer scattered around his land hoping to catch anything. Easy trap - I heard the last guy who was caught was used as fertilizer for BLB's food plots

      Thanks for the great report.  We fished up there all last week, and we found shiners to be the only bait we *couldn't* get bites on. Very, very strange, but by far our best bite was on crawlers.  I think our total was something like 8 fish on shiners and 80 or 90 on crawlers (between two boats).  We didn't start fishing with crawlers until Thursday, either, so all those fish came on our last two days, with the windier Thursday being best.

      Thanks guys for the informative replies. Can you also comment on the walleye limits?

      Hey Barefoot on the main lake or current areas?

      a tournament-record 10-pound, 2-ounce beauty was big fish and A record 110 boats fished this year’s tourney, held out of the marina at Fortune Bay Resort Casino. 492 walleye, another tournament record, were weighed and released at this catch-and-release event.

      My daughter is shooting my 12 gauge 870 Wingmaster really good. Im looking for a nice looking, nice shooting and dependable pump shotgun for her at a decent price. I'm not liking the newer 870 Wingmasters as much as I did when I bought mine 30 years ago. I recently saw some Weatherby PA08s. Very nice looking gun which rival the looks of old Wingmasters with walnut stock, deep checkering, fairly light for $350 new. Reviews I see from 2011-2014 have me concerned a bit about hard trigger pull and shells sometimes not ejecting. Anyone have any experience or knowledge about these Weatherby pumps? If there were issues, you would think Weatherby would have fixed them by now.

      I did this a while back.  If you have basic carpentry skills you can do it for under $200. Here's what I did.   Get 2x8 treated board.  Cut to length of back bench.  Attach a swivel seat to board then attach board to back bench using screws and glue.   Buy two sheets of 4x8 3/4" sheeting that's rated for exterior and a gallon of deck stain.  Stain said sheets.  Cut out one for floor and one for casting deck up front (i used the front bench with a little bracing in between).  Use left over 2x8 for bracing casting deck.  You will also need one 2x4 treated board for bracing of the floor.  Install casting seat up front.  Looks good and is cheap and easy.  I used cedar stain and bought cedar colored treated lumber.  If I remember correctly I cut out the middle bench.   Only problem was it added a lot of weight so had to upgrade to 15 horse.  Sold it  a couple of years later for a $100 profit.  Just an idea.  
    • Walleye #1
        Walleyes on Leech Lake found themselves spread out but actively feeding on shiners.  A Jig and shiner or a plastic and lindy rigs with shiners and leeches were the go to presentations during the course of the week.  Somedays walleyes were wanting it dragged along which is where lindy rigs worked well and other days snapping or twitching a jig and minnow was the ticket.  So being diverse in your presentations, changing up colors and cadences, and getting away from the crowds is the ticket.     West End - Fish were found on West Goose Flats, Star Point, Grand Vu Flats, Duck Point, Pine Point, Stoney, and on some of the breaklines in Traders Bay.  Depending on the day depths changed, but it seemed the best bite was in 8-14 feet of water.  Find the shiners and you found walleyes closeby!     East End/Main Lake - Main Lake Rocks are still producing a large quantity of fish in the 20-26” protected slot, with some keepers mixed in.  Annex, Submarine, Five Mile, Pelican Island, and Rogers Point all had decent bites. Fish were typically found in that 8-12ft range on this part of the lake and finding areas with sand and boulders was the key.  Portage Bay also reported a good bite up near Federal Dam.  Look for emergent cabbage in Portage, especially on those bright and sunny days where those walleyes will look to find cover.  Pitching a jig and minnow or jig and plastic for these Leech Lake Walleyes in the cabbage is fun way to catch them.     Jumbo Perch are also showing up with the walleyes, but often times will be shallower.  Found some of our best perch bites in 6-10ft of water, with some really nice jumbos mixed in.     Jason Freed Leisure Outdoor Adventures Fishing Guide Service

       Any boat restorers here in the twin cities area?  Looking to get some information and possibly a quote on a 12 foot aluminum boat. Would like benches re-done with carpeting, and possible floor work. Thanks in advance, I appreciate it!
    • HugeHogChaser
      Good evening,   i recently inherited a 12 foot aluminum boat, and I would like to re-do the interior. (Add carpet to the benches, possibly add marine grade plywood to the floor and carpet the floor as well.)   does anybody have any experience doing this, or recommend anybody that is good with this type of thing?    Trying to figure out if it's worth it to pay someone to do it, or try and figure out how to do it myself with no experience.    Anyways, thanks in advance!
