We dragged the perm out today. What an adventure! With the slush still in the shallows, we pretty much plowed our way out.First we broke the eye hook out of one end, than we snapped the eye hook out of the back side. Ended up running a tow strap through the holes and back out Just to get the house out where we were on solid ice and could inspect the damage.Not as bad as we thought,for a 12 year old shack.Ended up catching 2 nice 18" walleye's and a 11" crappie. There is about 13" of ice in most places, but we could use some cold weather to firm things up for truck traffic.

I set up my perm in about the same place. I still move around a lot with my black portable. I bring the girls and grandkids out to the perm and still catch a few, but not like earlier. Been thinking of moving it over to the south side of the island.I've had some better luck just off of the hump.Had some good luck in about 16fow.

I haven't been out there in a week or two. Anything hitting? I'll maybe have to move my house when I get up there tomorrow. I'm in the bay on the edge of the city.

I went out with my buddy on monday.. started in the morning for some eyes, no luck. then moved into the bay for some crappies. set up on the southside of the city in about 10 FOW. hit some gills and 5 keeper crappies but let em go to grow. I think there could be a township on beebe lake itself now a days! grin.gif

My dad just moved the house to the SE side of the island. How have they been biting over there? I'm heading out there tomorrow afternoon.

      This story is part of the reason I try to avoid public hunting areas.  Hunters showing up late, setting up nearby, shooting at birds out of range, etc just ruins the hunt.  Put it this way: if there is a chance other hunters will be around, I won't be.  You've got a good threshold of patience Wanderer.  Way more than I do for a situation like that.

      We checked there second - it was way too crowded for what we were looking for.

      I have several friends that either live there or have cabins in the area.  And I now drive through Hill City when I go to Ely.   We’ve been deer hunting around Emily for quite a few years now.  I guess you could say I spend some time there. 🙂

      Wanderer, do you frequent the area often?

      Anyone know what water temps are recently? Hoping they start dropping quick

      Well we’re back home and tired!   We tried to get lost as best we could in the Itasca/Cass counties area.  Looking for carry in accesses to kayak into duck hunting heaven. 😅  So was everyone else and they had jon boats with mud motors.   We had a great time despite some negative highlights that really affected everyone’s hunting.  We found a roost during scouting on Friday, along with a great campsite to stay.  The roost and campsite were 2 miles apart though.  We scoped out the closest spot we dared set up the following morning cuz, Don’t shoot the roost, right?  Paddling by 3:30 am we got our spot, not flushing too many birds out.  Sure enough a boat with 3 guys churns past us later and deep into the roost.     Sure enough again, birds blow out but settle back down.  We still think we’re in a good intercept spot with a convincing decoy spread laid out.   Low and behold, 8 minutes before legal shooting hours the three guys open up a barrage of shots that starts scattering everything to the wind.  Birds are whizzing by us but we hold our shots.  5 minutes to go and they open up again.  At 2 minutes to go the rest of the groups in the area start popping off.  Everything is flying high now and showing NO interest in decoys.  We have birds going over us but too darn high.  Not for everyone else though, they’re blasting at birds higher than the tree tops.  Sigh...   The three guys churn back by us maybe an hour into the day - limited out I’m sure.  We were the last ones back to the “carry in” access and were greeted by a group of 4 with 2 boats that scouted Friday also.  We know where each other were hunting.  They had that look on their face like they were expecting some answers.  That was enough for us to say “It wasn’t us!”     It was a civil conversation after that. Local guys, upset with the shenanigans as well.  Three groups were able to get just half a limit with the tough shooting after the blowout.  All pass shooting; nothing coming to the dekes.  Those birds are spooky and know their safe distances.  Such a difference than expected.   We put plenty of miles on the truck and about 15 miles paddling looking for Mecca.  It’s a tough game around there that needs some more time to figure out.  But it’s a fun area to look at.  Short of not coming back with limits of ducks, it was a good, long weekend.
