Mallards??

Recommended Posts

HUNTFISH69

Was wondering if anyone has been having in luck in the St. Cloud area with mallards in the past week or so. I've been out a couple times and managed 1 drake the first day and 1 drake and 1 hen the next.

I've noticed the mallard numbers improving quite a bit in the last week or so. We're prime time right now! Actually, the later the better if you're in the fields. Wish we had a split so we could hunt 'em in Dec.

Save the hens!

out this morning saw maybe 50 total mallards.

Had Three flocks come in. Got 2 green heads and a hen. I had to wait cause it was early to see if there were green heads. 1 out of each flock. 4 shots. Wish they would have came later.

Saw a couple mergansers.

The mallards are not in town like they will be when the northern flight comes. Thats for sure. I hit it right 2 years ago.

Big storm front moved in and went out in 30+ NW wind and snow and had my limit of greenheads in 15 minutes.

Hope that happens next week

Good Luck

Was out this morning and it was pretty slow going yet. Ended up with just a pair of greenheads. Can't wait until those ponds and lakes freeze up though, better hurry up.

Hunted by Cleveland today, the lake that had the wormy walleyes last winter, and saw ZERO mallards. Lots of divers out in the middle and we all know how easy it can be calling in the incoming groups of the large live bird rafts in the middle of the lake! mad.gif I am saving lots of money on shells though! Take care and N Joy the Hunt././Jimbo

      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.

      I've done cheeks quite a few times and they are always good. They take only a few seconds to carve out. I like to get the most out of the things I kill to eat, so I'm not afraid to pull them out of smaller ones. I'm glad to see that so many people picked up a new tip. That's the point of congregating on these forums. I wonder how many non-registered folks will read this and learn something new.

      I've been doing them for many years.  Like Cliff, a friend who was a guide on LOW brought some out prior to the main course-been doing it since.

      With the snow cover completely gone and lots of standing water, 60s in the forecast, with plenty of sunny days next week, and a good chance of rain mid-week; this may be my last weekend on the ice, South of Hwy 210 anyway . Fish have really been on the chew

      hey guys..i installed the helix 7. took it out the other day. it keeps  randomly shutting down, with the motor off it will stay on no problem. Heres where i think i f'd up. i used the same 3 amp fuse harness from the old sonar that came with the boat, the old hb depth only kind. its wired right to the ignition wire. i used the correct gauge wire where i needed it. im guessing its not getting enough juice? also if i wired it direct to a separate battery, how do i go about hooking up and on board charger? or would i be ok just wiring direct to the battery that runs the motor? thanks for any advice. those musky lures look so bad ass! nice work !!
