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!

      I have a couple of those covers.  Not sure what they are good for.

      For all you pan fish lovers, check out this beautiful pumpkin seed I found guarding the bed while I was out bass fishing. Couldn't help but get some video of this beaut! Enjoy!

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff

      Just wondering if any one will give me pointers on this lake??  Not specific spots.  Going to be at Pocahontas Resort July 1 - July 8th.  I am bass guy for most part but have kids (6 & 4) that love to fish for panfish and want them to keep entertained.  Any tips or information would be greatly appreciated!!!  Thanks!
