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.

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff

      Ice forming in the dogs water dish right now! Forcast still looks good starting Tuesday. I predict the first truck thru the ice on Buffalo will be Dec 23!

      I am definitely in! My boss also gave me permission to start looking at jet boats this spring. We have to get rid of a 3rd car first but I do believe a Lowe 1760 pathfinder with a 115/80 will also be in my future!
