Nice photos guys and gals.

Anybody know if art barbarians will sponsor another photo contest, or aren't they affiliated with FM anymore?

yeah we felt we had to run the entire spread and go deep digging in the blinds that morning; competition set up 1/4 mile away in the next field.

Our Duck Opener.

Day 1- Two ducks and a limit of geese...

100_0251.jpg

Day Two- A complete mess! About 10 mins after we had the dekes set out in the field, we stood in the pouring rain. We ended up getting 1.5 inches in 1 hour. Sloppy, sloppy mess.. That didn't stop the ducks though. Had our 30 bird limit by 9:00 am. 18 mallards and 12 wood ducks.

4 of us opened up the Gackle Waterfowl Hunting Camps that also have combo upland. We saw sharptail, pheasant and ducks/geese in our first hour on the farms.

Our main focus was ducks and we shot a total or 6 species (teal, mallard, widgeon, lesser scaup, redhead and shoveler).

The last day we limited on 20 ducks in 1 hour.

Here are some photos.

      I happened to be out on the chain this morning and drove from Big Trout to the very west end where Pine River comes in.  Rutgers Bay was the worst for moss by far from what I saw.
    • back bay
      muskies - thanks - I think we are gonna stay in either lost bay or the brule - depending on where there are spots available when we get up there.  Any mainstays up there you can clue me in on as far as reefs go?  I see a few on the charts that meet the criteria but don't know if they are worthwhile and many are not named on the chart I was looking at.   If its closely guarded secret I understand.  Just trying to learn about a different style of fishing since the bays probably wont produce anything worthwhile by the time we get there.
    • smurfy
      Back at ya!!!👍 pretty warm on for sure.
    • Falconheart
      The Buhl pit lake at the end of the downtown one has a nice boat launch area and dock. Stubler lake across from campground has two fishing docks but no launch Mott put in Mt Irin has a boat launch  than there’s the another in Hibbing but don’t know the name
    • Muskies
      Chubs mostly...depending on the day and conditions. Always good to bring crawlers and leeches to try also.
    • tacklejunkie
      OK, I’ll give my report and see if anybody else has anything to say.    Headed out last Wednesday to Fish Lake. Just some bluegill and little perch and a couple of outside the slot walleye.  Then when evening came, switch from crawlers and spinners to leeches and spinners and picked up four walleye.  Three of them were within the slot.   Anywhere from 8 to 14 feet of water. A lot of recreation on the lake and it seemed the fishing for walleyes picked up later in the evening.    Just covering water on the flats and edges of weeds
    • ManBearPig
      Thank you for your reply Muskies!   Knowing now that there was a bug hatch going on during my last trip, as I suspected, I don't feel quite as bad about my fishing skills.   I'm  really looking forward to our end of July/early August trip.  This camping/fishing trip will be with  and old friend  that I've know since grade school days.  However, the last time that we camped together was in the BWCA about 40 years ago.  My plan has been to fish the mid-lake humps with crawlers on bottom bouncer/spinner rigs or just using jigs.  Now that you mentioned minnows, I may try to bring some of those as well.  As you using Fatheads on the jigs in late July?
    • Muskies
      Good morning Erik If you want to fish in July and August, the reefs are a good choice. I also look for shelves along side islands. The info received from the local people is correct. Use your electronics to find active fish. If you don’t see any fish move to a new spot. Once you find them a jig and minnow is a great choice. Good luck when you cone back.
    • Muskies
      Hello manbearpig, You were out in the middle of bug hatch...finally finishing up now. When you come back in late July try locate reefs in the 20-30 foot mark and you should have some luck. If you look at a map there are many in the area you were camping. I prefer using a jig and minnow as my go to but have  used different techniques over the years...depending on what the fish want. Hope you enjoyed your time on the lake.
