Wadena area reports?

Recommended Posts

bmc

I'm headed down to NE Wadena County next week to chase ol' Tom Turkey around.

Any reports from down in that area? What stage of their spring fling are the birds in?

Still alot of gobbling going on? Lots of hens on nests? Toms still have the gals herded up for the most part?

Thanks,

Brian

According to Oldakowski bobcats are thick, we were asking about the lower bird numbers in the area and also many broods just didn't happen or were wiped out with last springs cool wet weather, also the red fox has really come back around the county, there were 4 of us hunting either A B or C season and we all connected, none of us saw very many birds though, my strategy was to scout on the opener and locate a tom or 2 which worked out well, I also realized early on they wouldn't decoy so I intercepted him on his route. There's some around, just not many yoy birds from the nest the last spring. Some places you see a fair amount, in other usual turkey places you see none, then again it's light by 5:30AM so unless your in the right place right time you won't see or hear them, good luck. They were gobbling early and late last Sunday the few that were around which made the difference for me knowing I was where I needed to be.

Thanks MuskyBuck!

I'll be hunting around Nimrod. Last spring we only saw 3 hens in 5 days of hunting. The year before we saw birds every day.

The family friend where I stay says he's been seeing them all over, so it sounds good.

Gotta' break my 0 for 5 streak............ sick

Yes good luck, that is the deal, there are plenty around really, it's just so different year to year where they really want to be at season time, you may want to even like mid day scout some if you aren't hearing gobbling or seeing much where you set up shop, then again you may be in the best spot to be just noon to 3 they move etc., put in some time and you'll have a good shot, good luck,

      If Minn Kota doesn’t supply them any longer, you should search the typical on line sales sites in case someone is advertising new old stock parts. I have a 55lb Maxxum on my fishing boat that needs a new armature.  MK doesn’t sell them anymore either.  I did find some new lower units available and some armatures.  I don’t have the serial number sticker on my TM anymore to know for sure what armature to get so I took mine to an electric motor shop to be rewound.  The cost is about the same as a new lower unit though. I might just as well get the lower unit with new seals and such but it is really a wash on price and everything else is in good shape. Check more resources if you haven’t already is my advice.  Good luck.

      Hello,  I have an older model minn kota trolling motor.  Its a 1999 All Terrain Power Max 44lb Thrust.    I cannot seem to find a new foot pedal system for it. Should I just get a new trolling motor? Thanks in advance for any help

      It’s the greatest experience to take a kid duck hunting on youth day. There is not enough kids out there to chase the ducks away. When I take kids o rarely see another person hunting. I wish they had youth day when I was a kid. Stop being selfish and give the kids a chance!

      I think that's a great way to do it.  Probably only takes a minute to put it on or take it off.

      The guy I bought our place from had an 1/8" cable right down the center of the whole dock. I'll likely move towards a more invisible, section by section approach. However, the full length cable setup has been effective and not as intrusive as one may imagine. Really easy to fasten all the sections at once. May be able to see in the attached

      Headed north to a little perch and walleye lake this morning. The day didn't start the greatest, go to take off from the landing and the boat porpoised like a mofo... Ah crap forgot the plug haha haven't done that one in a few years... The day got better from there, we found fish stacked up on the wind blown weed line... There were so many fish I assumed they were schools of big perch, but they were mostly smaller walleyes with some real nice keepers mixed in... Crawlers under a bobber were the ticket... They would hardly touch a leech.

      Many of you FM long termers remember FisherDog from way back...he used to post all the time before he moved to Florida.  He was up for a couple days this past week and we got on a good crappie bite in the area, he is a Crappie Guru and man we worked hard but had fun...boated well over 100 in 2 days on the outside weed edges...many absolute Donkeys. Kept a few smaller ones so he could have a fish fry for his family...couple of pics...he's in the blue shirt.

      Any action out on Gull?  I have tried a few times and have had some success pulling rapalas but finding areas void of weeds is getting harder and harder.  Just curious how others are fairing out there.  I am thinking I need to get out there during the day and try small jigs and 3" minnows as that is what have been in the guts of the fish we have cleaned.

      I have a buddy that has a cabin on the lake and he will fish the walleyes over deep water and also in the weeds as they seem to relate to both at times.  Seems like a hard lake to pattern but he always seems to catch something out there.  Good Luck

      ...oh and I ran into Fiskynut on the Lake as well as the Point following Striefffs too.
