WAKING UP!!!

Recommended Posts

Okay ever since I started this wonderful stressful thing called college and life on your own I just cannot wake up! Every morning my traditon is wake up for a mornign bowhunt and half the time I sit up but everytime the alarms get shut off and I pass back out. Ive got three am bowhunts so far. This week will be better but whats the best way to get awake fast and actaully get motivated to leave the warm bed and comfort knowing ill be lucky to see a deer?! This has been goign on for 2 yrs now. I hunt big woods so its not like im seeing enough deer or big bucks to get me up and I sleep easy in stands. I dont have any problems waking for school or duck hunting!

Find a deer calendar, and put in on the wall next you your alarm clock so you look at it when you shut your clock off. That'll get you going!

The rut is almost on!

If that can't get you up, nothing can!

I like the phrase someone else had on here, "You can sleep when your dead. Now its time to hunt!"

what ozzie said. I too am in college and occasionally have a similar problem, mine is that i hit the snooze button and end up getting out to the big woods about ten minutes later than i wanted to. I sometimes also get my self really pscyed the night before, thinking, i have an awsome spot to sit and there is no reason i should be sleeping in.

Sounds like your rut is going on right now, more so than the deer!

LOL, I had to take the crack at this thread! grin.gif

Boys, just something to consider. Right now you have 4-6 years where you can party, chase, and generally screw around. You will probably have the next 30-40 for hunting. Do the math. Hunt when you can, but enjoy every minute of college, it will be over before you know it. I still hunted as much as possible, but enjoyed myself thoroughly at college. Die hard hunters might think differently, but now I hunt plenty and wish that sometimes I could go out to a college party and get a little nuts again. Enjoy college, it doesn't last long. grin.gif

try the old native american trick, before you go to bed, drink 1-2 quarts of water, then in the morning you will be ready to get up because your bladder is full. I do that all the time when I need to get up early in the morning. Also, once you are married and have kids, you will discover that you will be out the door before that alarm goes off, just make sure you turn the alarm off or the bride will git ya

set the clock an hour earlier and you can hit the snooze button a few times and still get up on time.

what i do is have everything ready the night before so i don't have to do anything when i'm tired and lazy...just make sure when the alarm goes off to shut it off and get directly up...don't roll back over for a few minutes...them few minutes turn into an hour quick!

      Someone is always catching them somewhere but so far this week that someone is not me. Still a few ideas to try but running out quickly

      On the south end...   Summer fishing is prime time right now up at Lake of the Woods.  Good numbers of walleyes being caught.  A nice variety of sizes, which bodes well for the fishery.  Small fish, eaters, slot fish which must be released (19.5 - 28.0 inches) and trophy walleyes over 28 inches all in the mix.     The mud is holding big numbers of fish and two main fishing techniques are being used to get it done. The first technique is drifting or trolling crawler harnesses.  Using a two ounce bottom bouncer and a two snelled spinner will do the trick.  Best spinner colors have been gold, gold/pink, orange/chartreuse.     Making sure your weight is near the bottom, but not dragging the bottom is key.  Try to maintain a 45 degree angle and make sure the spinner is spinning, normally 1.0 - 1.3 mph.  Walleyes will load up, almost feeling like you are dragging a wet sock.  A good feeling!   The second technique catching good numbers of walleyes is trolling crankbaits over the mud basin.  To get crankbaits down to schools of fish normally in that 28 - 32' range, lead core line, snap weights, downriggers and even a 4 ounce bottom bouncer with 6' mono or fluorocarbon leader with shallow diving crankbait will work well.   Most popular depths on the mud are 30'-36' of water over the mud basin.  Not every walleye in the lake is focusing on the same forage base.  There has also been success in that 12-20' range over sand and even shallower along shore.     Reefs can be their own ecosystem and can always hold fish.  Fish can be on top, sides, on the rock to mud transition or even adjacent to reef out in the mud.  Go fishing, watch electronics. On the Rainy River...  With drier weather, the flow of water is decreasing on the Rainy River.  Water clarity has improved and so has fishing.     Most are targeting the edges of the main current where water is slower moving.  Points, bridges, underwater structure, docks and bends in the river can all change current flow, creating good spots for fish to live. Jigs, spinners and crankbaits are all catching fish.  There are 42 miles of navigable Rainy River with literally thousands of fun spots to fish. The sturgeon season is open.  Some nice fish were caught this week.  Anchor up on a hole or adjacent to a hole in the river and soak some nightcrawlers.  Local tackle shops have flat no roll sinkers and sturgeon rigs.     There is a big population of smallmouth bass in the Rainy River.  Although they don't receive much attention due to walleyes, they are abundant. Up at the NW Angle...  Great walleye fishing is the rule of thumb using three techniques, jigging, trolling spinners and trolling crankbaits.     Reports of walleyes sliding deeper off of structure.  If fishing a "spot on a spot", jigging is the preferred method.  If fish are spread out or you are searching a flat, spinners and crankbaits will cover more water and walleyes are normally cooperative.   Some big pike caught again this week.  These predators are often hanging around schools of walleyes and saugers, but rocky points, bays and sunken islands are great spots as well. Muskie anglers continue reporting good success fishing a variety of structure amongst the islands.

      CFD200, Nice Fish!  are you on the east or west side of Vermilion?
    • monstermoose78
      Just have been busy and I will work ok a report tonight. 
    • CFD200
      We had difficulty finding any walleyes this weekend.  The previous two weekends I marked a lot of fish with few takers.  Didn't  mark many this weekend but, caught this 24" mark.

      Fish cleaning shack has been pretty quiet at pike bay resort last 2 days. Been on several spots on big bay with little success.  Family wants to lose their $$ at casino today.  Hopefully get out later today. Good luck and keep posting.  
    • FishinCT
      Any recent info out of vermilion? Coming up for next 4 days and will report back as well. Haven’t fished in the summer up there for a long time
    • Dash 1

      Blame you?  You needed it there and I knew you couldn’t change your, um, *stretch?* time.
    • smurfy
      🤣🤔 I can't believe you didn't try blaming me.   It's been a while since I stopped there... to check the landing  🤭
