Anyone up north still seeing Teal

Recommended Posts

I only had time to hunt the first 2 weekends and there were teal around. I assumed with a little cooler weather they would be gone. I talked to someone who hunts by hibbing and he shot a couple teal last weekend. Anyone else still seeing/shooting teal up north?

We saw a few greenwings last weekend in the Forbidden Forest (BWCA), but it is not unusual to find late-migrating greenwings right until ice-up.

No bluewings - haven't seen one of those since Opening Weekend.

Flows out of Stump Lake.

Actually, the current maps refer to it as Stub Lake.

Use of the Stump Creek reference is a nod to my earlier days, when my buddies and I referred to something as "the best this side of Stump Crick" or "ain't seen nothin' like that this side of Stump Crick" etc.

Spent many a day trapping rats and mink and beaver and shooting ducks and generally messing around on that little stretch of crick as a youngster. Mom used to tell me I might as well move there permanently when I'd annoy her, so I have moved there permanently, here in cyber-space.

There were bluewings north of Winnie last weekend. 3 of them aren't going to make it south either...

I was just smothered in blue wings last Saturday. I had my limit in 45 minutes. Sunday morning brought two more, but they were greenies. I still saw a fair amount of blue wings. On Tuesday morning, they were pretty much gone.

This was in the Fergus falls area.

      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
    • Big Red Lodge
      Good to know.  Thanks for the update
    • Big Red Lodge
      I have not heard of any either, but the weather is looking good.  I'm optimist for opener

      Thanks for your updates Cliff . Out of curiosity , if this date holds true of Monday April 30th for the start of this years event , would you happen to know how this date sits with past late ice out years , for instance 1996 , 2013 ?
