Goose Calling DVD


RoosterRedneck

Recommended Posts

Anyone have a good Goose calling DVD or CD they would be willing to borrow out for a couple of days. A few guys on here talked me into trying out the short reed call over my flute. I've had some practice but it still sounds like a sick goose. I'd be willing to pay for shipping both ways. I did see the DVD Honker Talk for $20 but I figured a couple dollars by lending someone elses would off set the price of the call I bought. Thanks.

I'm very sure in a day or 2 I'll have it down. If not then I'll go buy one. But my word is good and I'll have it back to you in 7 days or earlier. 2 days to get it, 2 to practice, 2 to send it back plus I'll double the postage. Your cash wil be inside the box.

Thanks Rost,

If anyone else has that Honker Talk or another DVD/CD you would recommend I'd like to borrow it.

Honker Talk is a great DVD. Just buy one, you can't watch it too many times trust me (no matter what your girlfriend or mother says.)

If you're new to calling with a short reed goose call it takes time and practice. You'll not get it down in an afternoon, week, month or even a year. It's takes time and plenty of it. The DVD by Shawn Stahl is a great place to start, I still watch mine and I've been running a short reed for years.

Abrams,

Do you think you would be so kind to let me borrow it for a couple days? Rost is letting me borrow a DVD (not honker talk). If you so choose to wait and see for him to post that I returned his DVD in as good condition as I received it and in the amount of time I said, Plus the cash in the envelope to pay for what he was charged for shipping, that is OK with me. I understand this day in age. But it would be appriciated from one Goose hunter to another.

Jeff Foiles, the master goose caller, has a great DVD out with information on how to call geese. It's a DVD about goose calling that is very comprehensive, covers all the calls, and shows you real hunting situations. He breaks it down so you get it but also goes into advanced stuff. Very cool and a quality video like Foiles always does! If you want to order it send me an e-mail and I'll hook you up.

does the DVD include instruction on how to float a 4th shell, or shoot a bird 3 times at 10 yards (rendering the bird inedible)?

While his instructional calling tapes are probably quite good, as a hunter who appreciates the ethics and the tradition of the sport I myself would not support Jeff Foiles.

      Made it out for while on Monday.  Bite was crazy good, had fish suspended right below the ice.

      On the south end... Lake of the Woods ice fishing is still going strong.  Ice trails and ice roads are doing well.  Some anglers report slush when going off of the roads and creating their own trails.  Good idea to work through your favorite resort and outfitter this time of year.  Ice fishing is still readily available if you want to get out. Both day houses and sleeper houses are out and can be through March 31st.  The forecast ahead has high 30's during the day and teens at night.  Work through a resort or outfitter as they monitor conditions closely on their ice roads. The walleye and sauger season extends through April 14 and the pike season never closes.  Perch, eelpout, tullibees and crappies are also in season. A good week of fishing for some, mixed for others.  Walleyes seem to be moving this time of year.  If you are on them, it is normally good.  The combo of the jigging line and deadstick is working well.  One day they want it moving, the other, the deadstick is the ticket.   Huge pike continue to be active with good reports this week.  Setting up in 5 - 15 feet of water is the depth most anglers are targeting. On the Rainy River...   The morning / evening bite has been best for walleye anglers.  This time of year, extra caution is needed if fishing around moving water.     No open water fishing to report as of yet.  On the Rainy River, ice can go out quickly, only Mother Nature knows.  We will keep you posted. Remember, on Four Mile Bay and the Rainy River, catch and release only for walleyes and saugers through April 14th.  The big lake is still open for harvesting walleyes and saugers through April 14th.  Up at the NW Angle... Good walleye and pike reports by anglers this week up at the Angle.   Like the south end, a plain hook or small glow jig with a live minnow has been working well.  Walleyes, saugers, jumbo perch, big pike and eelpout in the mix. Crappies continue being caught on the Ontario side of the lake amongst the islands.  We recommend using a guide as ice conditions amongst the islands with current and neck down areas, etc.   For those looking to access the NW Angle while avoiding customs, snowmobiling across the lake on the marked trails are in good shape or utilizing the Lake of the Woods Passenger (bombardier) Service keeps you in Minnesota.  During the open water months, boating across or charter boat service is available keeps you out of Canada.

      Drove out again on Tonka yesterday late afternoon and fished sundown. Six other vehicles on the bay. Ice in great shape. Lost a lot of snow since last Wednesday. Snow melt starting to drain down the access so that'll go first. My hot spot was  still hot but not as many bigger crappie. Had to coax them a little to bite. Still got a 12 (inhaled the jigging spoon), a couple 11s and several 9-10. They were 80-90 feet away from where I caught them last week in 20-22' instead of 18-20' maybe because of the bright sun. Gotta love LiveScope for helping to find them. At 4:24 pm (spring solstice) I thought the fish might start jumping out of the holes or at least go on a ravenous bite, but nothing changed. When all that bit were little bluegill I went looking for the crappie and didn't find them. I did find 2 schools of sunfish. One in 15' that had 7" fish and one in 18' on a ridge between shoreline and a hump that separates 2 deeper holes. Those were 8" average.

      I rarely buy live bait in the summer also, with the exception of leeches.  But all of it needs to be kept cool and oxygenated so the bait coolers do prove their value.   You might want to shop around for bait prices though.  Maybe out of the 7 county metro you could call ahead.  I found decoy suckers for $3 each over the winter.

      Part of my issue with live bait is that it generally results in a higher hooking mortality than artificial does, especially in the heat of summer.  95% of what I catch is intended to be released, so in order to maximize that, it helps to avoid using live bait.  I'm not saying you can't accidentally kill a fish with artificial that is deep hooked, because you certainly can.  But as a general rule, they are more often hooked in the mouth with artificial.   The cost is also ridiculous for some live bait too.  Crappie minnows and waxies aren't bad, but when you start talking shiners, jumbo leeches, and decoy suckers...it gets out of hand quickly.  The last time I bought a big decoy sucker for muskie fishing years ago, they were $14 each.  15 bucks for a dozen shiners and half of them are dead by the time you get to the lake?  Take my left arm too why don't ya.

      End of April is my guess for lakes along the I90 corridor.

      Great.  Have to swing by soon to see what they have, then over to Petti Bros for some jerky and sticks!

      Great news. They opened last Wednesday. Sounds like it’s about twice as big. Looking forward to checking it out soon.
