Molt flight going on EH!

5 posts in this topic

Just saw the fourth flock of Canada geese going north yesterday from my house here in Baxter. Usually I see them when I am fishing for walleyes on Mille Lacs around this time of year. The last flock I saw had around 75 geese and the rest had about the same number. I would like to know where all them geese go as there would be a great number of them if they all ended up in one location! blush.gif

I've seen about 500-600 geese in the last 2 times I've been out fishing...once on Rainy Lake and once on the river. Definitely fun to see some bigger flocks of birds again, only a little over 3 months to go!

yeah I watched a few flocks fly over while playing baseball in Sartell and again last night flying over the softball fields in Waconia...I actually counted the days in my head until opener when it happened last night and thought that this summer is going to be longer than I thought.

A lot of them end up at Oak Hammock Marsh in Manitoba to do their molting.

another flock of 80 or so birds came over very low last evening in Sartell...also saw several other smaller flocks. Gets me going seeing groups of geese in the air again! Just a few months and counting!

      The forum has do much more than fishing reports, hot bites, etc.  There's been more general and specific fishing  techniques, information and connecting with each other that has happened  here.     I can get hot bite information in a lot of places.  In fact many hot bites never do up on these forums.  Sounds like you've got a lot of information in a lot of places.   That's great!  Many of us have done the same thing.     Many of us have got together on the ice, in the woods or on the water because of.this forum.  That's what I've always enjoyed the most.     Hope to be able to keep doing that for a long time.
