Couple Minnesota Grays!

Recommended Posts

Grayfox

Mitch and I took off the last week or so to do a little fishing and get a few things done around the house but decided to drag the guns and caller out this morning to try our luck. We've been saving some of our Minnesota spots for after the 1st and broke a few in this morning. We called in a male at the first spot and Mitch dropped it. Had the female come in a couple minutes later but she stayed a little out of range and Mitch kept his finger off the trigger. We tried three more with nothing showing. Heard a couple packs of coyotes in the distance and marked them down for future reference and decided on one last one for the night.

We set up in some thick stuff with Mitch near the caller and me downwind 30 yards. I let the caller play for 15 minutes or so while varying the volume when I see him hit his light and see the fox. He shoot and it tips over. It came in pretty close and fast and he hit it pretty hard but down none the less. #8 and 9 for him this year. We've tied our best year with this mornings take and are at 23 for the year with plenty of time to break the our record.

Good work! My Hunting partner finally saw a coyote out and about today... We hunted pretty hard last week and weekend, without any luck at all... so maybe they will start moving in our area sometime soon.

Nice gray fox. I'll be snaring a property with a decent gray fox population as soon as I get back from Wyoming next weekend.

Hey Grayfox. I have a FoxPro Scorpion coming in the mail and has 100 pre recorded calls. What calls do you use the most and you said you played it for 15 min, What call did you play continous?. I live in S.W. minn and just wanted to do some day and nite calling. Do you use different calls at nite than during the day? Thanks...

Randy,

Honestly, I don't think it would matter a whole lot which sound I used for the grays but I typically use mostly bird distress sounds,woodpecker,bluejay and nuthatch. Mostly because anybody running around usually uses the old die hard rabbit distress and I want to use something they're probably not hearing on a regular basis.

      Is the night bite going?

      I would surmise the slop bays across from the resort would be good for largies.  Crappies, next bay down from resort to the right of the point with the giant mansion on it.     Smallies, any rocky shoreline or rock pile, for example  Windsock Island and vicinity. Pike, various weedy areas mostly although I have never had much luck deep in the slop.      Maybe some of the folks who go the LOR will chime in.   At least you didn't ask where to catch walleye on the west end. 😊

      Went out Walleye fishing Saturday night and I caught this beauty. Measured 45 1/4" and estimated weight of close to 30#'s. Fought it for over 40 minutes. Caught on 6 pound line with a #4 hook. What an epic battle.

      Going for some largemouth on pike lake near duluth tomorrow if I could get some advice that would be nice. Never fished it before

      So island was kind of a bust when I went a few weekends ago. It could be the fishermen or could be just bad fishing

      I know all those areas well.  I'm a Parsippany~ish kid myself.  Traffic did suck when the commute was 40 one way- now just 5.5, all backroads. @Wanderer Hey for boat rentals a license isn't needed?  I have my NJ boat lisc, but doubt they'd honor it.... To ALL!  Thanks for all the replies and help here... sooo looking forward to the trip. I will  indeed look closer as the time draws nearer, and omg, I would love to be a boat buddy (we say boat b!tch), and consider this my "ask".. Thanks again fellas! Tight lines!   Mr Mayor

      Even serious anglers get seriously lonely. Fished too many metro lakes and beyond to count. Fishing has always Kept me sane and sober, its what I and I do it well. Recently moved, wondering if there's anyone out there who might wanna swap some tips, tricks, and hopefully some big ones. Not very good at this kind of stuff but hey, what do I got to lose by asking?!  Thanks, M.E.
    • Michael Endres
      Loved across the street from it for years, on timbershore lane. I've caught monsters, several shore spots if you know where to findem. I just moved to inver grove heights and am looking for someone (or more!) To go back asap and catch some whoppers

      I've ice fished it a few times, this year actually. It's unnamed crappies and northerns, it's true it's private land but I've never had any trouble, guys in the buildings parking lot always waved to me.
