Quack, the vortec works pretty well for us. We use some big spreads 200-300 decoys with a couple of spinning wings and the vortec. Its hard to say how much its helped but definately hasnt hurt. If you want geese dont bother getting one they flair from it all the time, if we start getting alot of geese we have to stop using it but we found the same with the spinning wings. Adam

ATM- Thanks- Just wondering on these, I've not tried these but use Mojo and have done well. Yeah the geese dont seem to like it much but sometimes we've had geese that came in like they didnt care and of course that was after we had our limits. Thanks again!

Quack- Iv noticed that Lesser's, cacklers, and EPP's dont seem to mind the mojo's too much but the giants hate them. If im hunting ducks and there are allot of little geese around I will usually leave out the mojo and still shoot some geese (although usually not my limit) but if only giants are around forget about shooting any geese until you take it down. In the past I have had lessers decoy into my mojo even! No goose decoys, and I dident even blow a goose call at the time. I had about 4 mallard decoys and the mojo and the geese locked up to the mojo and came right in feet down. Weird huh,I agree.

Did you get them on river by chance?

C'mon dan z...we all know you painted those wing tips, they're still dripping wet paint, haha. No but serious, awesome shot. How does that even happen?

the sad part is I did not know the tips were white till I had the breast all picked, then turned it over and saw white tips, never thought I would have EVER mounted a mallard but this one would have been the one to mount IMO. every feather after that point was a god d^M it why did I not notice it.

current, spring, river? How do you keep a spot open when theirs 4+ inches of ice? how do you launch your boat? how do you keep a pocket of open water in front without it freezing?

do your homework and thier is open water closer to you than you think. I know of a few lakes that are still huntable. not a river, not a spring, and no current. just regular ol lakes I do bust to get to open water. and if I am able to break a pocket and hwave it blow away I try and make it big enough so it dont freeze overnight. going everydday to same spot a few days in a row helps too..

considering I drive 90% less than jeff I would think I do pretty darn good, and me and the border patrol guys have lots in common I never leave the state and on top of that I hunt all public water!

I think there are many of these guys who do the same, I could be wrong though.

I'm one of them, have not shot a out of state duck or goose, only in MN! smile this year was a good year for me as well

I also hunt strictly MN.

Quack- I will be going to school up in NW MN starting next fall and have no one thats serious about waterfowling to hunt with. I have private land connections (in some great area's for goose hunting, canada's & snows) up there also. Its so far away I havent been able to get up there but since I will be living in that area I will hit it hard in the upcoming season. If your interested email me.

      Nice fish!  I was out near mille lacs area and the frog bite was killing it. Had a handful in the 17-20” range. 
    • Muskies
      It’s been a good summer so far. Of course, fishing always good but the boat traffic is down 75-80%. Drive out, pick a reef and start jigging!. Hopefully everyone can enjoy all parts of rainy next summer. Picture is from my wife and I Monday afternoon (August 3).Caught a total of 20 walleyes, 10 perch. We kept 6 slot fish for supper.
    • cgreene
      Great catch! I love fishing while raining. The just enjoy spending time in a lake with cool weather.
    • Mtnman
      Thanks for the update Muskies. Making preparations to head north in 3 weeks. We are so looking forward to cooler weather and the song of the loon. Love those pictures, keep them coming. Cheers and good fishing !! 
    • rayguy
      Was up this past week and fishing was really slow.  Trolled deep from Big Island to Foleys and back with one Northern the results.  Really was not a whole lot suspended in the 50+ water. There is no way to fish middle Whitefish on the weekend.  Every pontoon in the world now ties up around the sand dune island and the boat traffic is unreal.  Looks like Minnatonka ,  not a good thing. Did get a few small walleyes on leeches early morning , nothing to brag about.  Keep a eye out ,   lots of crazies out there.  Think the Sheriff needs to hit the lake for a few days to settle the Windsor crowd down a little.

      Anyone use the access at Trout Lake on the Whitefish Chain?  If so have you had issues with turning around in the parking lot due to the inspector parking in the no parking zone that is marked off with yellow lines?  I get into arguments every time I am at that access because the inspector feels they have the right to park in an area that is not to be parked in.  It is becoming annoyingly fun for me to get on them and educate them on where to not park!  This has to be one of the worst accesses in the state when it comes to traffic, space, and inspectors.  Many times they have an inspector there that will give you a 15 minute lecture on invasives even though you have heard his speech before!!!  Power trip and then some!!!!  I respect most inspectors I come into contact with, but WOW are some just go a little overboard on their inspection.  I have to laugh my ass off when the inspector runs us over about water in our livewell (talking about drops of water around the drain ring) saying we could get fined $800 if we leave the access like that, yet what do the inspectors say to the wake boat that pumped in 1000 gallons of water into it and most certainly cannot dispel all the water and an inspector cannot see!!  Not sure what it is about this particular access but I have had the worst experiences there and do not have similar experiences elsewhere, so I just had to ask if other see this too.

      How about the Eagles club. Pickled Loon got slapped twice for Covid violations and a relative working there caught it.
