Mosquitos and Thermacells...


Recommended Posts

I am assuming I'm not alone with this, but for the last couple weeks when I've been out checking cameras and clearing stands I have been absolutely ATTACKED by the state bloodsucking bird. In my favorite and best spot, its a low-lying meadow with a pond or two and the mosquitos are literally unbelievable. You can hear them buzz in the early AM and late PM. I have bought a Thermacell in anticipation and hopefull prevention from these bloodsuckers. Just curious if anyone has used one before and if it worked? Or if anyone has any crazy home seceret remedy that will magically repel them...

Let the longest week of the year begin.

its really amazing how well they work!! I use mine all the time...whether in my boat at sundown fishing, sitting at a campfire at night.....or in bow stand!! It gives off no scent so no worries about it scaring deer away with odor either!!

I agree they are the bomb. I did a hunt in Manitoba two weeks ago and the bugs were incredible. But with my Thermacell, I hunted in peace.

I actually found some replacement packs in a Winnipeg archery shop with "cover scent" on the label. I've never seen these in the USA and I'll be using one most likely on opening morning.

      Culling is not against the law in Minnesota unless you have a limit. (Which obviously applies in this case.)   They finally cleared up the language about it in the regs this year.

      Since culling is against the regs in Minnesota, weighing in early is a great thing to do.   Congrats.

      We're heading up tomorrow. Hoping for walleye but looking to mostly relax. We'll have leeches and minnows and any tips would be great. Just looking for enough for a good fish fry. Thanks in advance.

      Caught a lot of small ones yesterday in 20 -30 ft.  A couple of eaters.  Minnows on Lindys clearly out fished the leeches on Lindys.

      Kudos for doing this. I'm sure a lot of fishermen would not have.

      I know it has been raining all week but anyone have any walleye reports?  Heading up for the holiday weekend and want to do some fishing.

      Partyonpine, Would you be willing to share in what areas you were getting some nice Bluegills?  I am on the east end on big bay and would like to find some good panfish.

      Opener and the week after were good.  Not the numbers we normally get but better quality in the East End.  Not surprised on the weights for the Auto City a.  Usually for us we only catch a few slot fish but we averaged 3 a day for 10 days.  2 overs, biggest 27 inches.     Our best luck was 12-16 feet for quality.  When we went deeper we caught more but smaller.  Bass were really starting to heat up.  For me little earlier than normal.  Found some nice Bluegills the day we went after some panfish.  Dock fishing was as many as we wanted per usual.

      We will be up on June 8th for the week. It will be our 13th year in a row staying on the lake.  I hope the walleye are hitting the bobbers by the time that we get there.
