I was fishing the Mississippi River in Sauk Rapids tonight and this goose/ or whatever it is came swimming by and nobody around us knew what it was. Any ID would be great thanks guys. Sorry if its not clear I had to zoom in quite a bit.

Sartell Angler

that there is a bona-fide farm goose...could be what they call a "greylag" goose or whatever but it isn't wild and surely cannot fly.

How was the fishing? We managed a few suckers and carp in about an hour on the riv tonight

we kinda figured thats what it was when it struggled to cross the river and never tried flying.

we were at the canoe access where the sauk river comes in, not much biting around there tonight.

thanks and i guess i won't be naming a new species. haha!! grin.gif

you're right IRISHSOBNO4. i googled african goose and the pic that came up was exact. now i wonder who's goose wandered far enough to get between the sartell and st. cloud dams. needless to say it definately looked lost!!

      Well that is pretty sad. Had a lot of good times, burgers and dinners up there snowmobiling and 4 wheeling.   www.grandrapidsmn.com/...hill...squaw-lake/article_aa3b5546-f7ed-11e7-b45d-c34d... https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=4&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwjnv_rsyOrYAhUGEawKHV-ECfoQFghCMAM&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.grandrapidsmn.com%2Fnews%2Ffire-destroys-the-hill-bar-in-squaw-lake%2Farticle_aa3b5546-f7ed-11e7-b45d-c34d5b1f648a.html&usg=AOvVaw1LRiuHCFf3M7Xusreg7vdH

      Nice Bluegills Ricky! Those thumbnail sized opercular flaps are super special. H e l l those are thumbers!

      Well, check that one of the list. After trudging through the slush Saturday we were rewarded with a handful of undersized crappie. We'll have to try some of the options around Pelican next time. Happy, safe fishing everyone.

      Beautiful weather on Sat and Sun. but plenty of traffic! No traffic today but still a very slow bite this morning. Could just be the weather change!??? Cliff

      Heading to that area this weekend - Curious as too how much snow cover is on the area lakes, and whether it's even worth bringing the wheelhouse?

      I spent 3 hours last Saturday morning working on “the catalog” then went about my weekend, planning to finish at the end of the weekend.  Went to open it up and the new laptop won’t make pictures on the screen.  Tried everything; no dice.  Have to return the piece of Black Friday junk.

      Cliff, did you have a lot of vehicle traffic around you on Saturday? Maybe the bad fishing on Saturday was just the weather conditions, although Saturday was beautiful weather-wise.
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Same here. Thursday was a good bite and the weekend bite was mostly a bust! Cliff

      I think he's going to not wash it and keep telling everyone at the bait store and on the lake he's a Pro Staff on HSO & Outdoors Minnesota. Until someone sends him a HSO hoody or new hat!
