Had a spectacular morning hosting an 11 yr old and his father for their first turkey hunt. Listened to the mountain turkey woods wake up, heard 'em gobble, had a hen whup up on my DSD hen decoy, finally 3 jakes came a stutting in and put on quite a show at 15-20 yards gobbling in unison multiple times! Hunter said he wanted to whack one and did a fine job doing so. Congrats Hunter.

Team "whatever we are", I'm headed for the Clearwater Country tomorrow scouting & visiting with landowners on Wed. and getting after them Thursday a.m. Hanging around long enuf to take in another NWTF banquet Saturday night. Then pointing south for Boise on Sunday with reports and hopefully photos & statistics. I'm headed to the same property that yielded the 5 bearded monster a couple of years ago! Hopefully I'll bumble into some of his grandsons.

Cheers,

WD

Hey guys thanks for the thoughts and prayers and Audrey is still doing well. I hope everbody is having a good season so far. I talked to my Pa who is out in the Hills now and it sounds like the are having a tough season so far. Sounds like the bird population is down out there from what some of the locals have told them. Good luck everyone!

Carefull with that bad boy. I got one last year and have not had great success with it. Next time I use it, it will have a jake fan installed. I believe the full fan I've been useing is scaring birds away.

I hear ya, seen decoys look like magic one day and a curse the next. Its an option for those dirty devils where I'm going tomorrow - they love to roost and strut on the neighbors. Can't hunt there so its an option to try to pull one across the line fence.

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has confirmed zebra mussels in McCarron Lake in Ramsey County.  A person trained in invasive species detection found six zebra mussels near the public access. A DNR survey found six additional zebra mussels north and south of the public access. In both cases, the zebra mussels were attached to rocks and muskgrass in 1 to 3 feet of water. Ramsey County staff conducted a targeted search and confirmed a lakewide zebra mussel presence. Whether or not any invasive species has been confirmed in a lake or river, Minnesota law requires boaters and anglers to: Clean watercraft and trailers of aquatic plants and prohibited invasive species. Drain all water by removing drain plugs and keeping them out during transport. Dispose of unwanted bait in the trash. Some invasive species are small and difficult to see at the access. To remove or kill them, take one or more of the following precautions before moving to another waterbody: Spray with high-pressure water. Rinse with very hot water (120 degrees for at least two minutes or 140 degrees for at least 10 seconds). Dry for at least five days. People should contact an area DNR aquatic invasive species specialist if they think they have found an invasive species in a waterbody where it has not already been confirmed. More information is available at mndnr.gov/ais. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources invites the public to an open house to learn about updating the master plan for the David Dill-Arrowhead State Trail in St. Louis and Koochiching counties.  The open house will be from 6-8 p.m. on Sept. 4 at the Cook Community Center, 699 3rd Ave. S.E., Cook. The main parking lot and building entrance are along Gopher Avenue. Visitors to the open house can review information, ask questions and submit comments. The David Dill-Arrowhead State Trail is about 125 miles long, stretching from an intersection with the David Dill-Taconite State Trail, just east of Tower, northwest to an intersection with the Blue Ox Trail, just south of International Falls. The current master plan was written in 1980 and revised in 1983. The trail is primarily managed for snowmobile use, but other uses such as hiking, biking, horseback riding and skiing are permitted in certain areas. Written comments may also be submitted by emailing [email protected], using the online comment form or sending via US mail to Joe Unger, DNR Parks and Trails, 500 Lafayette Road, St. Paul, MN, 55155. The DNR will accept written comments through Sept. 18. More information can be found on the David Dill-Arrowhead State Trail webpage. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Disappointing.  Had a mushroom/Swiss burger there last week.  Small, dry, overcooked with a small dab of what looked like mushroom shavings.  Wife had a salad with grilled chicken that was tough as shoe leather.  I was really hoping for better as our cabin is close and we enjoy eating out.

      Was out on Osakis yesterday evening on some midlake humps using 1/4oz jigs with leeches in the hopes I could find a few cooperative walleyes. I was getting pestered by what I thought were perch stealing my leeches. I'm a slow learner so it took too long for me to finally downsize my presentation until my dozen leeches were nearly gone. I finally downsized to 1/8oz digs and caught fish. It was 10" sunnies that were stealing my bait. Once I figured that out, I grabbed my crappy/sunny rod with a flu-flu jig and proceeded to have a pretty good time catching sunnies. I had a container of crawlers with me and just cut them up to tip the jig. Kept five for a meal but could have easily filled out.    They were near the bottom in 18' of water.

      FishHawk and Depth Raider are your choices as Sub Troll and Canon are no longer manufactured.   If you don't have any of the above your relying what you see on your sounder and for speed your looking at the blow back or the timing of the thump from a Flasher.   Interpreting speed at the ball this way is a guessing game but it works along with varying your speed. It might not tell you a precise speed but you should be slowing and speeding up not matter what method for speed your using.  If you set your speed at 2.5 and stick there all day your probably won't boat as many fish as if you were coming in and out of 2-3 MPH all day.    Would speed and temp at the ball be useful, absolutely. Wouldn't it be nice to know that fish hit at 75' down in 45 degree water at 2.8 MPH.   Maybe you it was on a speed up or down when it hit too.

      Seems just fine but I'm not big on eating out and I don't drink anymore so I'm not a frequent flyer of any establishment 
    • delcecchi
      We are?  I hadn't noticed any such activity.      So, how do you like the new reconstituted Landing?   
    • trumy
      Just curious what any posts on this page have to do with the landing? I really don't care but some of you are sure quick to point out when posts get off the intended subject 
    • delcecchi
      Good to know.  Didn't know that they had boats.
    • Wishin4Walleyes
      Went out of agate in 2 harbors on Saturday from about 8 am to 2 pm after missing the last couple weekends (family vaca). Tough bite. Had 1 short strike on the rigger at 50' with a spoon and 1 screamer hit a tail dancer long lined on a board (must've been a pretty good sized steelie as I've never seen a board disappear behind the boat like that before). Unfortunately it came unpinned. 0 for 2 in 6 hrs of fishing. Tried depths from 20 to 70, tried plugs, spoons, flies, etc. Talked to another gent at the dock and they managed 14. Really love hearing that when you come off defeated and someone out in the same area doing mostly the same things lights them up.   Looking at getting a fishhawk x2 to try and find the thermocline and get on the fish faster. Anyone have experience with the down temp/speed devices on the market and are they a must have like I've heard from some?
