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.....

      I’ll be on Birch Lake - Ely - in late July. Anyone familiar with good spots?

      We bring a weather and an FM radio. Cell phone coverage is sporadic, but you can find a signal almost anywhere (but usually it originates from Canada). Bad weather can come in a hurry, so it is nice to be able to know what is coming in advance.

      Do you know anyone who reloads? Ammo has been bought up with the civil unrest currently going on.

      I would agree with James about tough bite. The last few days have been tough. You wont see those mayflies in Big Bay, because they all hatched last week. We have had high heat no wind to go with mayflies,then fish flies so I think that explains the problem. It will get better soon as minnows become primary food source for eyes. Wont see you out there for a while as I have to leave for a week. Good Luck !!

      Unfortunately this forum has gone really quiet. All lake superior users moved to the Facebook group:(

      I may not get a chance to fish Leech before this fall, but I still really liked reading your report Joe.  Thank you for posting.

      One more question about communication and weather alerts on eastern Rainy Lake.   We could occasionally get  an AT&T signal, especially after we had signed up for the Canadian signal.  We were about 16 miles east of the visitor center, and at the Kemp Channel entrance.  The signal strength kinda depended on weather conditions and time of day.   I am looking at the possibility of getting a weather alert radio.  It states:  Public Alert Certified Weather Radio, Receives all 7 NOAA Weather Channel and Reports.  It is also an AM/FM radio.  Does this actually work in the mid-lake area, or would you recommend something different?

      Ive been up since Friday. Until today ive been out in short stints hour here or there each day. Sometimes just graphing areas looking for pods of fish. I caught a few fish each time but considering the thick pods I fished it was tough to get them to go. This morning I finally got out and hit it a bit harder. Ive had zero luck dragging lindys through these fish. Ive gone to camping on them with slip bobbers and leeches. 15-18 feet. The bite definitely hinges on getting some wave action from the wind and that's been tough to come by. There was a window this morning where it was an alright chop and I was able to get 4 in that 14.5-16" range. I tossed back a couple that were about 19 3/4. I'd rather eat a 15" personally. But again I was on carpets of fish and it was pick one off here and there. I fished 4 different reefs for those fish. Lots of Fish flies. So annoying. I did not see substantial evidence of any may flies. I'll be up most of the next 10 days. I'd think there bite would pick up soon.
