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.....

      Found the walleyes during the afternoon today. Wind blown rock reef. 8 feet of water. Bobber and leech. All the walleyes had perch minnows in their bellies. We caught 11 and kept our 8. The one pictured was 23 inches.

      Just got back from another 5 days. Fishing was ok. Little more warm as and humid then I like but survived. Skeeters weren't real bad but the deerflies are getting to be real annoying.

      Well here is my two cents.  Have done a lot of fishing and not much catching.  Been very windy and now feels like a oven so its a hard bite. Walleyes we have caught have been fairly shallow.  Most on live bait but a couple on shad raps.  No real pattern ,  one here and one there. Bass are more active.  Morning has been good for them.  The past weekend I think its the most pontoons and wake boats I have ever seen on Whitefish.  Big fishfly hatch the last few days. This weekend you better get up early cause the armada forms about 10:00 am.  One strange thing is we still have sunnies on nests around our dock.  Very late for that.  So guys keep your eyes open as there are some crazies out there buzzing around.  Happy fourth!

      Awesome report. Thanks!

      The Leech Lake walleyes are on the move and our guides have been chasing them! With a recent fly hatch and some heat moving in this week has been a grind but we are still finding limits. A few keys to putting fish in the boat have been the location, the presentation and the wind.   Most of our fish have been on Sucker bay and the main lake. Duck point, Ottertail point and Stoney point have all been good and putting out fish. We have been focusing on the 11-14 feet of water and covering ground has been important. Both Duck and Ottertail points have nice break lines that top out around 8 and bottom at 20, which, is what we have been focusing on. Try to run your boat along the break line and make note of where the fish tend to be. If they are on the top of the break fish there and likewise for the deeper water.   Our presentation of choice, when the wind allows it, has been bottom bouncers with spinners. Gold, pink and white, and green have all been getting the Leech Lake walleye guide fish in the boat. Try to run these at 1.3-1.8 mph with just enough line out to “bounce off the bottom.”   The wind has been a nice advantage the past few days. Use the wind to push your boat along the desired path for a nice easy drift. As stated above the places we have been focusing on are actually in the same area but with different layouts. this allows you to make sure you are fishing in the waves and not in flat calm water. As you may know, leech is very clear so on a flat calm and sunny day it can be tough. Find the waves and find the action.   We do still have some openings for July yet. Give us a call to see what we have open. https://leechlakeguideservice.com Dennis Carlson with his Biggest walleye 27 inches. Caught on a green spinner rig

      There are sturgeon in all parts of the river, but Stillwater to Bayport is really gonna be your best shot at catching one.  Especially right around the Excell Energy plant.  Good luck.

      I used to fish right below the Grays Bay dam on Lake Minnetonka when I was kid.  We caught all kinds of fish there.  I often wondered if a guy could start there and float further down on Minnehaha Creek in a kayak.  It sounds like its quite possible, especially after a good rain like we just received.  Might be worth a try.
    • Muskyhunter73
      I mostly fished muskies today. Had two hit this morning. Finally saw a fish on the rocks tonight. Heard of one 51 incher caught tonight. 
    • Muskies
      Thought I would go for a cast after supper...able to fish around reef point area for an hour using pop-r’s(by request from smalljaw)...lots of active smallies...here is a sample...all put back to their beds....
