Good morning!

1 post in this topic

I managed to convince the wife to get up this morning at 4:45 a.m. to go listen for turkeys. I also promised I would take her out for breakfast as an added bonus. Twenty five minute drive to the hunting grounds and we weren't there two minutes and a gobbler started sounding off straight out in front of us. She thought was pretty cool. We could hear at least one more way off in the distance so we drove over to where we thought he was and were sitting there and heard him gobble a quarter mile away. The wife was manning the binos when she spotted him walking a fenceline. She really, really thought that was cool. Heard one other gobbler while we sat there for a total of three altogether. She couldn't get over how loud the honkers were and with all the roosters crowing that it made it hard to hear the gobbles. Hope they are still in the area for season E when I get a shot at them. Good morning indeed!

      I think stoney point is good for wheelers only.  Tried horseshoe bay and followed the pressure ridge and could not find a place to cross.  Went back to Whipholt which had a good landing and went toward stoney point  Had to cross a small pressure ridge by the Island.  Once crossed, all the way to stoney  with no problem  fishing was SLOW, tried the deepest part of the Paris Trench all the way to 24ft. thinking of one last trip this weekend

         Thanks for the update, I completely understand why you choose to post this here instead of a different thread. I haven't been on the ice in WEEKS now, might be retiring the ice gear for the season and waiting for open water pannie season...Or the big lake.

      Hey monstermoose Im in princeton or by Longsiding.  I think I have a decent spot as the farmer says he sees them out there a lot.  Never found a better scout than a farmer.  Just havent hunted turkey much.  I appreciate the generous offer and the advice. Looking forward to watching my boys get the turkey fever.  Last year I would have hit you up for those spots as we did some sitting in blind to watch the sun come up. Thanks all for the advice and helping a new turkey hunter out.

      Know a guy that is out there today.  Unfortunately he is not fishing as he got hung up a breaker this morning.     The main sheet sounds like it is fairing well.  They have been accessing the lake from Whipholt and driving across.  Long drive.  Not sure about other accesses.
