Then take them Morel Mushroom hunting. Lilacs are starting to bloom. Looks like 4 days of rain. If they aren't out this weekend, they should be just afterwards. Even my boy who dislikes mushrooms, likes Morels. Kids like missions.

.....and my main boat is still in storage behind two campers..... shocked.gif

I've never really hunted for crawlers before, but would love to try it. I live in sherburne county, where much of the soil is sand. Where would be a good location to look for them? thanks.

Schools, golf courses, parks, hospitals, they all tend to keep there grass kept up and mowed low for easier spotting and grabbing.

I thought I blew posting this when we only got a quarter inch of rain and things were drying out by dark; but we found at least 50 before 10:00 pm. Can run the hose for some extra ones if its dry where you are. Might go out again this weekend when its even wetter.

One of my favorite things to do on a damp night. The memories of my dad and I "hunting" crawlers came flooding back when I read that title.

Bless you guys- the bullheads'll love ya!! My old neighbor when I was a kid used to have an electric prod system he'd stick in the ground, he would go out in the middle of a sunny day and get 'em all day long.

Morels ARE just starting, more rain would have been better. Found only seven today (Sunday). Check out "Hunting" forum for more talk.

When I was a kid we would run the hose in the backyard under a heavy canvas tarp for a while. During the day! We didn't get a lot of of crawlers, but enough to fish for the day. Riding our bikes to the lake... the memories. ooo.gif

What's the going rate for kid's crawlers? My kids will sell some to a guy at my wife's work, he's going to Canada (only artificial bedding allowed).

I gave him $5 for all I could use in one day. I didn't even use a dozen. His smile was pretty big and probably thought I was a real sucker. Of course, I was bragging I was going to catch tons of fish and use all of his nightcrawlers and really rip him off. (He was fishing with us)

      I'm hoping the snow they are forecasting shows up. Because then it's on for sure.    Put new glass on the light weight .223 so I don't have to carry the heavy target weight gun around. Just not practical where I hunt to have a 300yard gun. A 150yard gun will do just fine.    When you cary a shotgun and a rifle on almost every stand a few extra pounds can add up in a hurry.    Good luck tonight moose

      Twin is pretty deep. One of the last to freeze over in most years.    I wasnt home yesterday evening to see if any more kids went through the ice.    I will did the spud out and see how thick  it is by shore tomorrow.
