does anyone have some good suggestions for where to hunt in the Faribault/Lonsdale area? I'm thinkin some kind of medium sized water. I would appreciate any advice you may have.

Thanks,

All of the spots that I have looked at have had not ducks on them for days now. I have been on Circle lake, Sanborn lake and twin lakes. Don't know where they are but hope that some more come through before the end of the season. Good luck, I guess ya really never know from one day to the next what you will find. Take care and N Joy the Hunt././Jimbo

Thanks Jim, I'm hoping tomorrow's NW winds will bring some new ducks in the area. I'm not really familiar with the area but I'll probably be out somewhere around there on Saturday AM. Do you know anything about Shieldsville Lake.

I have never hunted Shieldsville. I have a question though, if you go out from the landing and off to the left is there a waterway from the lake to that slough back there? I have always wanted to try that but not sure that you can get there from here if ya know what I mean. Up until this past weekend I have been getting 1 to 3 ducks each time I went out. Only saw one duck this weekend and it had no intention of coming anywhere close to where I was. Have a good one! Take care and N Joy the Hunt././Jimbo

What do you guys think about Rice Lake off of Highway 10? what are the water levels like? Hey FrenchLakeKid you hunt around that area, do you have any suggestions?

I hunt west of town, mostly geese & puddle ducks, but the last few weeks have been diver hunting with luckycrank. Almost any bigger body of water with shoreline cover, you should be good wink.gif

      where we all fishing today?   Looking to walkout or use 4 wheeler if landing permits?

      We miss the leadership of Ricky Rubio ... Teague is a very bad defender and does not see the floor.  Rubio had his best shooting percentage season ever and career points scored of his career.  Wish we could re-do that trade.   Don't get me going .... among players that play the most minutes ... we are now the 7th oldest team in NBA???   2 year window to win ... we should have kept our talent and let the cake bake!

      We still have 24" of ice on the bay & we're only 6-8 miles from where they set the nets. Doubt they'll be starting anytime soon over there.

      Green has some nice gills. Glad to hear they are biting

      I’m wishing you luck my friend. It’s hard to get away and it can be very deflating when the weather doesn’t cooperate.

      Hit Green for a couple hours this afternoon, almost zero traffic and the sunnies were active. It’s nice to see this lake is back!

      still frozen in?

      Was out for a while on the Partridge River this afternoon, didn't have any minnows, managed one 13" crappie on Gulp waxes.  But, the old Strikemaster almost bottomed out-close to 30" of ice.

      I don't know what your Helix 7 requires in the manual, but a quick look would figure out if that 3amp is too small. Definitely wire your sonar to the motor battery using the correct gauge wire and fuse. If you connect it to another battery, it should be a stand-alone. Connecting to the trolling motor battery will generate interference.
