Jbell,

I took all my kids when they were quite young. I usually had a shaker call to simulate feeding mallards and the kids got to use it in the boat. That and hot chocolate and cookies made for a great trip for them.

outdoor ran

The boys I had out for the youth hunt are both 13 yrs old. My boys are 5 and 7 so here in Wi. there just along for the ride. Heres what I like to bring for the little ones. A back pack with a couple non loud toys (good luck with that one wink.gif) Snacks, juice boxes, extra clothes and gloves. I also let them bring a toy gun and dress them in camo. Let them play with the calls if theres no other hunters close by. Don't forget the lifejackets and ear plugs. Key is to keep them from getting to bored and somedays you might have to leave eariler then you want.

The decline in young hunters is scary and its going to hurt the future of hunting. Its up to us to get kids involved in waterfowl hunting so this great tradition never dies. Good luck hunting

Thats true Outdoor Ran-

I recently heard a statistic that hunting in the midwest has decreased by around 10%, give or take alittle. Its a scary statistic being the population in the world has doubled in the last 40 yrs, and we are still losing our sport.

I doubt it. Im originally from Sheridan WY, and sorry but I dont just give out my name. If we knew one another, Im sure we would have already established it. Good luck in the field.


I didn't ask for your social security number and a copy of your drivers license--I asked for your FIRST NAME...

Sartell is a small town so I figured I might know you--I'm guessing the real reason why you wouldn't allude to your identity is because of the childish ranting you had going on in your recent posts. That's cool though, I saw right through it.

You keep thinkin that Sartell Angler- wink.gif

Not sure what you think your seeing through. People have there days, and I had one last this past week where another person and I had a disagreement. Thats life. Its happens, and Its over. Not sure what you have against me, I dont think Ive ever commented to you on anything before. To be perfectly honest, I hadnt noticed you on this site until you asked me what my name was.

Like I said, I had a disagreement with someone that I took too far, and ended up being disrespectful to. Im man enough to igknowlege that. Just because I was caught me in a weak moment doesnt mean I have any obligation to explain myself(even though I just did), or give you any info about me. I havent been disrespectful to you, please dont be disrespectful to me.

Da chise,

Sorry about the delay, hadn't checked this thread in a while. I don't mind posting it, I took the guys out on Big Rice Lake WMA near Remer. I use the phrase "near Leech" because most people recognize that, I say Remer, most people say "Where?". Sorry if it was misleading....... Probably not what you were looking for. Can exchange emails if you like, I know a few lakes in the area for duckin'.... I think my email is linked to my screen name, give it a shot if you wish.....

      Jim Curlee  Absolutely everything you said about the SunMar is true for the Biolet. Experienced it all.

      Much of MN has been seeing strong storms every couple days over the last week but that hasn’t slowed out Leech Lake Walleye Guides from getting on the fish. Not a ton has changed since last week fishing Leech Lake out of Walker MN. However, we did notice a pattern change in the bait of choice. Both Lindy rigging and pulling cranks have changed a bit.   Much like last Week we are still focusing on Lindy rig fishing. The water temp has dropped back into the lower 70s which has the fish looking for leeches again and less likely to hit crawlers.   The humps of Walker bay have been producing numbers of Walleye but not the best for size. Most of our fish have been coming in the 10-17 feet of water.   One tip we did pick up on is using a pink hook for your leech rig. This set up has been out fishing others 3-1. Try to keep your boat in the .5-.7 mph range. This can be tough on the windy days but the new Ulterra has pulled its weight on the guide boat.   Our Walker MN Walleye guides are still pulling cranks with success.    #5 Rapalas in perch and Bleeding Copper flash have been good for us as of late. As you can see from the picture the perch are ripe for eating and the walleyes are chasing them. Target the 9-12 feet of water range and just about 2 mph has been a sweet spot for us. Like always the lake and the bite is the best when you have cloud cover or a breeze. This time of year the fish spook easily when the viability is good similar to calm and sunny days.   We do have a few openings left for August and September so give us a call to book your next trip or to stay up to date with our latest reports   Visit LeechLakeGuideService.com

      Nice work gents! Looks like the back-end of summer bite is heating up. Love this time of year as we head into Sept. How is the water level with all the storms passing through? Has looked rainy lately. Last I was up was early July after that 8" rain storm and the levels were back up to normal after being low in June.

      Good luck fishing! Im also fond of fly fishing. I find it easier to fish when you have the best fly fishing rods. If youre looking to upgrade your rod, you can check here.

      Seven specie day today.  Live bait not required!  Couple of things of note...   I caught eight nice crappies this morning on a deep rock reef, along with a bunch of plump gills. Seems odd, but I’ll take it.  This afternoon, I targeted ciscos and whitefish out over the basin. Success!  Was happy since I now know whitefish can be targeted year round, not just thru the ice.  I also enjoyed the challenge of a different species that not many folks know about.  Was a unique and fun experience.  By the way, everything I caught was immediately released.

      Congratulations on your retirement bfisherman11! I hope you enjoy every moment of it!

      Our week (7/25-8/1) wasn't greatly productive fish wise but I could never really get a pattern to work. I usually use a lindy rig with a half crawler. When we did try jig/minnow not much either. The start of the week the wind was tough to hold on a spot. Later we had no wind and high temps. I marked some surface temps that were like 78 deg, that's pretty warm.   I went down to Brule narrows one day, never been before. Picked a reef and caught a 19" eye pretty quick and then boat control got to be an issue.   Might try a week in Sept once I am retired (Friday is my last day) but I sure miss the ability to fish north of the border.   Bill

      Thanks Jim. I value all opinions, because I really don't want to spend the cash on a subpar product that makes my life worse!

      What is the best time of year for brookies. I've tried spring but waters too cold, summer, bugs bad but fishing good. Never tried fall but I am think that might be the ticket. Usually use worms but sometimes spinner. Is there a special trick to keep the chubs away? Lots of them in my creek.
