Sunday was interesting but but not productive for putting birds in the bag. We saw birds but they avoided us just enough. New water Sunday is always exactly what it’s supposed to be: a learning experience.
Number one comment for the day: Guess what? What? It’s snowing again.
Try fishing in 6-10 feet of water. I have good luck using
fixed bbobber a jig and minnow set 2-4 feet down, casting
and slowly retrieving it. A beetlespin/minnow also works.
Well it hasn’t been stellar but it hasn’t been a waste of time either this morning. What I’ve been hearing is the hatch was poor in prairie Canada so we should see fewer but more mature birds. Seems to be true today.
Better pic of the black duck. Bucket list bird.
Well I shot bad today but I had a blast and Finn was happy. I missed some greenwings shot in front of them. The had some ringers whiz by and I shot behind them. Never got a shot a the woodies as the are sneaky but that hooded merganser I nailed that sucker. Finn is making the retrieve and a flock of 13-15 ringers dropped on top of Finn. The look on his was o crap dad what do I do!. Heard lots of ducks flying over and lots of shooting.
