We are up on Lake Vermilion and ended up with 6 for the morning. Shot 3 out of a group of 30 ringbills, a drake woodie, and then 2 more ringbills out of a group of 15... I was surprised to see all the ducks. Lots of educated local mallards that don't want anything to do with the decoys... Good Luck tomorrow...

Limits last three days, but Geese were shy today. They are starting to favor the open water already. I would suggest a main point and 3-4 dozen goose decoys. Two large lines one 20 yards to your left and the other line 50 yards to your right. wind in your face. The ducks should come right down the pocket and bank at about 20 yards in your face or come over the rushes to land in the pocket. Look at what spots will work for this setup and hang on. The stronger the wind the better.

Sunday was rainy, but manage to get 1 mallard, green wing, shoveler, and a male and female hooded mergansers, man I was excited about that one.

We hunted by St.Cloud, and there were not nearly the geese flying around as Saturday. There were more ducks flying but for whatever reason, the geese were not there. O well, still managed a few.

Sunday's hunt for us was night & day different from Saturday, this would be in NW MN.

Saturday... we had wind from the south, 30+ mph, partly cloudy skies, just an awefully windy day to be out, but the birds were working and worked great! Saw lots of mallards and capitalized on that. Geese were few and far between but took advantage of the one flock of 6 that did come in while we were packing up. grin.gif

Sunday... Wind switched to the west and there was thunder, lightning, and rain when we were loading up to head to the slough. We hoped that it passed by and it did. The rain stopped when we arrived and we headed out to set up. First half hour, we saw plenty of small Ring-Neck flocks but they were all high and moving. We had to switch to the other side of this slough which really hurt the action on mallards, they prefer the south side due to the proximity of small potholes right behind the point we hunt. After the first hour or so, the low(er) flying flocks kept creeping skyward until all we did was watch passing flocks of birds. Goose activity on Sunday was very interesting however... lots and lots of singles, pairs, and very small flocks kept passing near but we couldn't get them to move our way. Oh well... still working on the calling. grin.gif

      Nice video! Life jackets not needed in Yak's?  Just asking.

      Cigar guy, you got a good deal. They look like size 7 which is what I use the most for summer walleyes. Fleet Farm had all Rapalas 25% off last week so I stocked up.  I've used them a lot in the last 2-3 years.  If you fish them on rocks... you will lose some.  I try not to use them over the real bad snaggy stuff but sometimes I still do and usually end up losing one.  It takes a little practice, but they work well when you get it down.

      Funny, I first heard of this on LOTW also about 8-10 years ago.  They're tasty but honestly I often forget about doing it.

      Finally warm weather has arrived in Minnesota and I decided to hit the river for the first trip of the year in the Kayak. Felt good to be on open water after a very long winter. Even managed a few rough fish to get warmed up for the year!  Video: https://youtu.be/0gYDiOVH3As

      Spending some time in the turkey blind as it’s on solid ground. Had some jakes behind me but they don’t want to play. It’s okay as the have a free pass for now. In a couple weeks they will not have a free pass. If they would have come out I would have taken some photos. Lots for noise as everything is excited by the warm weather.

      Now that sounds like a plan.

      Sure. The good thing is if you have too many cocktails and fall off the dock you will not have to worry about drowning.  People are going to have a long walk to go swimming out of the Waskish beach. Hard to believe that 3 years ago the dock floated up off the support poles so we had to put in a few longer ones. The dock was right up to the predator guard below the wood duck houses.
