duck hunting around the walker area

Recommended Posts

rattlem'up

just incase bow hunting this weekend doesn't pan out i was just wondering if someone could guide me to a lake that would be decent for some ducks i have a boat with a trolling motor so it couldn't be a huge lake. any info would be great otherwise i guess its either bow hunting or grouse. I haven't seen this woods before its my buddies grandparent cabin so hopefully there will be some nice deer otherwise ducks are my second choice.

Not sure exactly where this is again...it's been probably about 18 years or so since I have hunted this lake...

Hart (or heart) lake northwest of Walker. All I remember is we headed north on 371, and for some reason I think we turned on 200 toward laporte. Stream comes into it and out of it, and there is some tall bullrush too..

Also, if you are willing to travel a little bit from walker is Big Rice lake on HWY 6 south of remer. Here, though, you cannot use anything motorized. Oars or paddles here, but lots of places to set up and pull a boat in on.

Hopefully with the colder weather there will be more ducks around. I have not hunted for ducks for about 10 years or so now, just because there are not enough ducks around to make it worth my time. But..I am a little further south and in pothole areas that local ducks seem to use more, so when they fly out, not much more comes in...

Rattlem,

You've got mail. BTW, my suggestion should fit your requirements. It's a small lake.

Whenever I want to find a lake with birds, I simply just gas in my truck and drive around til I find them. Look at maps and take numerous stops to glass and walk into other areas where you can't drive, the results are magical!

      Just for fiun I went to wunderground.com and looked at the weekly averages for 2014, 2016, and 2018 starting the beginning of march.  2014--May 13 ice out 5  25 20 14 29 38 29 39 39 44 44 56 2016-April 25 17 38 34 30 34 25 43 47 41 52 46 49 60 2018-??? 21 24 24 26 17 26 33.... Looks like we are behind 2014 with respect to getting average temp above 32 if that is significant, although the weeks don't line up exactly and we are way behind 2016 .

      I am so glad I got to fish with Icehawk and bass thumb. It was great times and I look forward to fishing with you all soon. Fishing with Eyeguy always keeps you on your toes and it’s always fun. Rick G I learned a lot by watching you work your magic on the gills. See you all soon. Thank you everyone for letting me hangout andfish with you all.

      Just talked to my neighbor up at the lake and he said one of SunkedAgain's neighbors in Black Bay couldn't get to his place going across the Partridge River-he said he almost broke thru the ice!!  I'm down a ways toward Wakemup from the narrow part going into the bay, but we had over 30" last wknd.  Looking good for some open water to fish down my way by the opener!

      Pepin is natural feature of Mississippi, not man made.   Seems the Chippawa dumps a lot of sand in that causes the mississippi to back up, forming lake pepin.  But the ice going out on pepin is probably due to runoff starting and raising the river level and flow as much as anything.    If I were to compare stuff I would look at average temp for Virginia in march and april of those late ice years compared to this year.  Throw in May for good measure.

      I can not remember the starting dates on those years but Brent would know! Cliff

      Like they say down in Loosiana, you pinch tail and suck the head.   And when they eat them, looks like they dump a bucket full on some newspaper on a picnic table and have at them.    But they still hadn't made it all the way west as of last summer, and I figure getting stopped with a cooler full of rusties heading home from the east wouldn't look good on my permanent record.... One of these years though.   I hear they are west of oak narrows now.

      Yes, had it on wife's iphone when that was the only smartphone in the family.   I think I would have to have one of the huge phablets to be able to see anything but I am old and don't see that well anymore, when it comes to fine detail.   But good you mentioned it since I had forgotten about it.

      some of the lake access areas might be interesting to navigate thru ad DNR is prepping the public landings

      That is a hearty fish.  I guess that is the benefit of the late winter

      Good to know.  Thanks for the update
