TURKEYS!!!! 346 Zone area????

2 posts in this topic

I have hunted the 346 Winona zone area for 10 years now. Every year the other hunters with me have the discussion if it is better to be one top of the bluffs in the river valley or on the bottom. Every year I have hunted I have been fortunate enough to have some great ground on top of the bluffs. But every year it seems like the majority of the birds are halfway down or further. I was told by some of the hunters that it is easier calling them up than it is down. I did manage to harvest a nice 21 lb. tom this year. The amount of birds we do hear and see is unbeleivable however.?! But it seems like for the most part that the birds will work their way down more so than they will their way up the bluffs? Any one with any opinions would be great!! Thanks!!! GL everyone!!

I hunt the 342 Wabasha area, and every year my group and I have this same discussion, which is the best place to be, on top or down low? Luckily for us, we have both options. But the truth is every year I feel like it's different, if I had to create a loose opinion, I would say most of the birds I have seen fly down from the trees and work the top of the fields, go down the bluffs during the midday and afternoon periods, before making their ways back up the hills/bluffs to feed right before roosting. But like I said, this is very loose, as I have seen plenty of birds that don't adhere to this design...

      Buddy and I went out yesterday around noon. Fished for a few hours was a little windy but not to bad. Only got a small largemouth and one decent gill. Only fished for 2-3 hours tried all over the small lake we were on. Ooh well still nice to finnaly get out. Planning on taking the yak out on opener do a bass/pike/ walleye trip so exited for that. Few nice gills you got there rick!

      Any reports? I know there was a lot of people out there. The boomsite access was already 3/4 full when I drove by at 5 AM. I'm thinking about going out of blufflands park on Friday.

      Kinda cold and windy yesterday. Fish really didn't seem to mind though. Finding ggod sized fish was the goal for the afternoon. Started off in a feeding bay that has a section of deeper water in it. This deeper water is where I found all my fish. Crappies were holding tight to the weed cover around the hole, while gills were closer to the surface. It wasn't fast fishing by any means, still I managed to find some real quality pannies

      I have two Vexilar transducers.    1) Thru hull/trolling motor- used.  From FL8 2) New never used, high speed.       I looked on Vexilar's site, The one's they sell say FL8 or FL18.  Checked FAQ and they look like they are interchangeable with other models???  Can text pictures-what do you have?
