Everyone knows sleeping in a blind is the time honored tradtional approach to getting a tom in close. grin

Sometimes you get lucky and the hens will yelp or cut loudly even if the tom is quiet. Took several little cat naps in the blind this spring only to be woke up by a rude hen. wink

The night before my last morning I was out scouting and saw two nice toms heading to roost,so I thought I would try em in the morning.My buddy and I set up on the field edge.As it started to get light out we heard our first gobbles bout 300 yards away.It starts to get lighter out and man were they gobbling.Two silent jakes pitch out into the field from about 100 yards away and they come a running to the dekes and then a third. These three jakes stay in the dekes for about forty minutes.One was on top of my decoy for about five min.Then a hen comes in and starts to peck the decoy.We can still hear the toms gobbling and it sounds like their getting closer.Then we see one on top of the hill and he waits for the other one for about ten min.When the second one arrives they start to close the 200 yard gap in a hurry.The jakes strut up and kinda of form a triangle around the hen decoy.The toms could care less as they come in charging.All the turkeys are now 20 yards away as I try and pick out a tom and wait for a clear shot that took awhile and when I shot my tom fell on my last morning of E season.I started out with my bow and switched to my gun on the 4th and 5th mornings.I came close with the bow on my 2nd morning,so I'm looking forward to next year.There were also two deer about 100 yards away feeding in the field when I shot the tom.Lots of action for sure,A good friend came along, he had an archery tag but decided to leave his bow in the truck and try a capture my hunt on film.After my shot the other tom and jakes jump on my bird and we just looked at each other like should've brought the bow.The tom weighed 18.10, 11.50"beard, 1 1/4 and 1" spurs.DSCF2338.jpg

      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

      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

      Good to know.  Didn't know that they had boats.

      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?

      Excellent Skunked, I'll give them a call

      PSU - call the boat graveyard in Shakopee, right next to Valley Fair. It's called Twin City Outboard. I once went in looking for a replacement lower unit for a 3hp 1957 Johnson Seahorse. I was happy when the guy said they had it. When I got there, the guy brought out a box of them so that I could look them over and get the right color! They've got a lot of boats too. Cool place to visit and look around.
