Lucky

Drew the last turkey week. Wasn't sure how they would be responding that late. I set up the first morning just as it was starting to get light. Was using a blind for the first time. In 25 mins. a nice tom came out of his roost and landed 25 yards away. Boom, done. 9" beard. Lucky.

Welcome to FishingMinnesota, and the turkey forum, glad to have you. First off, I must say, pics please!

Luck comes in many forms, but it tends to happen the most when you're prepared and already doing the right things.

I love it when they coast into the setup! Sounds like you had a great hunt, and congratulations!

Joel

There's always some luck involved.

But hard work usually tips luck in your favor.

Congrats!

That's right, you can't get lucky if your not out there.

I have killed three longbeards by waking up from a nap at the right time. grin.gif "Two of the four birds that I got this year" blush.gifgrin.gif

NOW, is that luck, being at the right place at the right time, or just being out there.

I like to say if you don't go you won't know.

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.

      What kind of hand auger and shape is it in

      Heard island lake was a hot spot. Any lure that resembles a small foot should work well.

      I'd go with 112 if you have the room more power and I believe last longer on the water. I pilot is worth it. Spot lock to fan cast an area or to stay outside the dock that you just got broke off of are two benifits. I pilot link links up with your hummingbird unit if that's what you have for a depth finder. Let's you follow depth contours. Good luck with the purchases

      sure odd to see the timberwolves mentioned in trade possibilities with the likes of a Kyrie Irving.

      I just dont believe that to be a Esox bite at all. Too much space between the Major wounds, IMHO!
    • delcecchi
      That is a strong possibility...

      Here is a photo of the foot.  Looks like a toothy gator.

      http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/07/21/fish-injury-island-lake/   DULUTH, Minn. (AP) — An 11-year-old girl has undergone surgery to repair damage to her foot which might have been caused by a fish in a northeastern Minnesota lake. Maren Kesselhon suffered nine deep lacerations and tendon damage when she was injured while sitting on a paddleboard on Island Lake north of Duluth Wednesday. Maren’s dad, Ryan Kesselhorn, says his daughter told him she could feel her foot in the mouth of a fish and kicked at it with her other foot to free herself. The Dickinson Press reports doctors at Essentia Health, where Maren had surgery, say the razor-sharp cuts, some down to the bone, probably were caused by a fish. Island Lake is home to large muskies and northern pike. A Duluth fisherman caught and released a 47-inch long muskie Wednesday.
