Another Dog Down!

Mitch and I were going to go fishing this morning but I woke up around 2 A.M. and looked out and thought that maybe there was enough light to take another crack at the coyote population.

I tried to get Mit up but it was apparent that wasn't going to happen. I grabbed the gear and headed out.

1st set: I saw and heard nothing.

2nd set: I headed to a farm that is quickly becoming one of our best. The wind was out of the SE and I was sitting along a woodline on the East side of a picked cornfield. The road is to the North. I put the decoy and caller 30 yards to the SW of me. I started with a couple howls and sat back and scanned with the binoculars and thought I saw two sitting 200 yards South of me. I thought I saw them move but convinced myself that it must be a couple of stumps along the fence line. I howled a couple more times then switched to coyote and fox fight and immediately saw the two spots start running from left to right in front of me. I got on the coyote on the right and when he stopped at 140 yards I let fly with the

17 Rem and heard the bullet hit and down it went. The other one bugged out. I hit the pup distress for a bit then shut it off and that's when the tongue lashing started. She barked non stop for a few minutes and then would throw in a howl. I could barely see her through the binoculars so there was no point in looking through the scope. She eventually barked her way off and I scampered out to collect my nice male. I'm amazed at how good the coyotes in our area have looked this year. Only one had mange and all the others looked perfect.

If I were a coyote in the area you hunt, I would get out of that country.

Nice job.

      My parents were up yesterday and Wednesday and they did pretty good. Out in the mud in about 33-34 feet. Lots of boats were trolling but they did well looking for pods of fish and then spot-locking over the top of them and jigging with leeches and frozen shiners.

      Is the water starting to recede on the lakes East of Orr? I heard it was really high on Myrtle. We're coming up to Black Duck in a week or so, just wondering if things are getting back more towards normal.

      I’ve fished sylvan heavily the last two years. Done very well. Many nice pike, bass, walleye, and bluegill. For pike trolling shadraps pretty much any where will get you all the 20”-25” pike you want. Plenty of dence cover all over for bass and that is the usual bass presentations. And for gills in the spring the channel between the two bays was VERY good this past spring went three days in a row and got 2 limits each time ( two angles in the boat) and relesed many many more.  Also the panfish limit on sylvan is 5 per person so be aware of that. I was out there 2 weeks ago and did ok. Again two limits of nice gills and a handful of pike but it took a lot of work to find them. I’m unsure of the walleye fishing out there but have heard it’s a good lake. Im not an expert on sylvan but know a little so hope this helps ya out. Good luck!

      The last two times on the river have been slow to say the least. Trolled Shipping channels, river channels, and all the flats. Crawler harnesses and crank baits. Anybody having any luck out there?

      If the water is that clear and you can see 17-20 feet down, the fish will be very spooky.  And if the sun is out, they will be looking for relief from the sun in the form of shade.  Night time might actually be a better option.

      Not terrible.  But they can be merciless, I will tell you.
