Favorite Grunt Sequence?

Recommended Posts

VMS

Hi All,

Just sitting here contemplating the upcoming weekends and the rut coming into full swing... Started thinking about different grunt sequences and wondered what is your most successful? I have usually used a sequence of 4 grunts with pauses in between each grunt. Has been successful here and there for "cold calling" What do you do?

curious more than anything, and would potentially give me more options for different situations. The growl may be happening this weekend too...

Thanks

Steve

I usually do the same, 3 or 4 grunts maybe 20 min. to half hour between. Now with the rut coming on I will add an estrus bleat or two from a can call also.

3-4 grunts. Usually I mix a couple of short ones (just a puff) in with a half exhale or two. The grunts are still short. Now, I'll start mixing in the can a little bit. If I have a deer not coming in to the grunt, I'll hit the can call a quick 4-5 times. Last year it brought in a deer that otherwise would have walked by me.

When I rattle. I usually grunt, rattle, grunt, rattle, grunt. The rattle sequences are a couple of minutes long and the grunts will vary in tone. I have noticed that there are two different kind of grunts the bucks will make. There is one that sounds like my lohman call. Not very deep, more like an EHHH sound than anything. I have heard the bucks making this when they are chasing the does. And then there is the dominant grunt I can get from my true talker. I here this when they are announcing there presence. I use both during the rattling sequence to immitate two different bucks. Anybody else notice these different types of grunts? Good luck.

I play the "shave & a haircut, two bits"

repeatedly until I'm bludgeoned about the head by another member of my party, then I switch to "mary had a little lamb" and sometimes "we wish you a merry christmas"

      Was up last week on Kab and it seemed that your bait depended on where you were fishing. Some areas leeches did good, but others minnows were the go to. We lindy rigged the entire trip and on days when wind was gusty we did pretty good shallower with minnows in 13 to 20 ft....then some areas we were doing better with leeches 16 to 32 ft. No wind was like the dead sea.

      catch and eat the crawfish too!!!

      I can second A Warrior.  Jumbo leeches for Walleye.  Northern were more interested in minnows and crawlers.

      A Carp Anglers Group Fishing social will be on June 23rd in Coon Rapids. If you enter the park from the Coon Rapids side (Egret Blvd), take a left from the parking lot and drive towards the picnic shelters. Take a right at the first stop sign and park in the lot. We will be fishing in the stretch or river behind the picnic shelter/playground. Start time can be before 7am and you can fish into the evening if you want. There will be medals for the 3 largest fish captured.

      Thanks for lots of good info guys.  Sounds like if I do things right I can have fish for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I'll try fishing that reef for some evening walleye. Bobber fish for some sunnies in the weeds.  @delcecchi, I catch enough Walleye in the summer that I really don't want to ask. I won't shy away from a bite. I'll check that little bay for crappies.  @vermilionfox, Wow that is a lot of location data. My PROP thanks you for the rock info!  Merry Go Round? I have another question regarding the Rusty Crawfish... are they a problem on the west side of the lake too? Bloody mini lobsters. I remember spending lots of time using orange for bass and walleye since they were a major food source. Been years since I've done that.  Gone Out Fishin

      I don't think you will be able to run it on that generator. I have a yamaha 2000 and I have not tried it yet but from everything I have read you need 2800 watts to start the AC. All the 2018 ice castle fish houses are coleman mach 3 plus AC I think.

      The fishing was pretty decent over the weekend.  Walleyes were biting on rigs with leeches or crawlers. Caught 12 between Friday and Saturday with with 4 nice slotters.   Biggest being a 24".

      Star Island in Cass Lake has remote, boat in primitive camping as well.

      Just returned from a successful trip on Kab.  Minnows did catch fish, but leeches were the ticket

      Angling regulations on Lake of the Woods and the Rainy River in northern Minnesota would change under a proposal being considered by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources to reduce the number of walleye and sauger allowed to be kept in the winter on the lake, and on the river allowing only catch-and-release fishing for those fish in the spring.  “We recently went through a public process of updating the Lake of the Woods Fisheries Management Plan and identified several potential areas of concern with regard to current levels of harvest,” said Phil Talmage, Baudette fisheries supervisor. “That’s why we’re discussing these potential changes.” The proposed changes would reduce the aggregate limit of walleye and sauger in the winter to align with the summer regulations on Lake of the Woods, and make spring angling on the Rainy River catch-and-release for walleye and sauger. The changes would go into effect starting March 1, 2019. Anglers will see yellow signs at public water accesses around Lake of the Woods and the Rainy River later this month notifying the public of the proposal. Future news releases will provide the details of a formal public comment period during the fall, and will include ways to provide comment to the DNR on the proposal. For more information on Lake of the Woods management go to mndnr.gov/lakeofthewoods. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
