well I guess I'll kick off the Early Goose pictures for 2010...

one of my big fears of moving to Virginia (the state, not the city) was lack of waterfowl hunting opportunities in the mountains. Well turns out there is a massive resident goose population. Early goose limits are 10 daily 20 in possession. We jump shot from kayaks in the fog this morning and limited out by the time the fog lifted 2 hours after sunrise. What a day...

He had 10 geese in his boat... and about 2 inches of freeboard

Today? That's not fair! We can't even hunt near water during early season!

Beautiful pictures Blue! Wish I was there. Virginia is a really scenic and beautiful region of the U.S. You should have coastal opportunities as well. Watch out for the hurricanes!

Gotta clean em' quick though!!!

Hey Quack,

Speaking of black hoodies...how did the DRC team fair opening morning? Also, what did the pup think of all of this action that was going on? pretty exciting time for them at that age. congrats on the birds you did get and good luck with the rest of the season.

HA! Seabass- I only hunted Saturday morning with the usual so it was a decent shoot until the sun came out and lifted the fog up. Oh for anyone cares, we shot one band as well and was an Iowa bird.

So, i would say that the early season hunts have not been going good or everyone is a little tight lipped about how they have done. Haven't seen as many post or pictures as last year this time.

I was getting accused of having too many birds last fall when I was posting pics of the hunts.

on another site someone had called a CO about a pic of a guy with 12 goldeneyes... and went to their doorstep and talked about it. It was a "Classy" CO (sarcasm) and needless to say there was two people on that hunt with one person behind the camera and another behind the pile of birds! But seriously, some people should just grow up and stop assuming that everyone who hunts FOWL do not eat their birds... guess what they actually do! mad

oh on a side note, last weekend was brutal. Found a field holding good numbers of birds the night before and only shot 2. On saturday found 3 fields holding high #'s of birds, no go. So tried runnin' traffic with no luck. Hopefully this weekend will be better!

      My parents were up yesterday and Wednesday and they did pretty good. Out in the mud in about 33-34 feet. Lots of boats were trolling but they did well looking for pods of fish and then spot-locking over the top of them and jigging with leeches and frozen shiners. 
    • Jmnhunter
      i havent been out in for atleast a month out there but check out walleye dan's facebook, he usually posts a report weekley; https://www.visitbrainerd.com/blog/fishing-report-july-16-2018/
    • ifishwalleye
      Hi, I’m looking for a fresh report for this weekend. Thanks in advance! Good Fishing!
    • roony
      Is the water starting to recede on the lakes East of Orr? I heard it was really high on Myrtle. We're coming up to Black Duck in a week or so, just wondering if things are getting back more towards normal.

      I’ve fished sylvan heavily the last two years. Done very well. Many nice pike, bass, walleye, and bluegill. For pike trolling shadraps pretty much any where will get you all the 20”-25” pike you want. Plenty of dence cover all over for bass and that is the usual bass presentations. And for gills in the spring the channel between the two bays was VERY good this past spring went three days in a row and got 2 limits each time ( two angles in the boat) and relesed many many more.  Also the panfish limit on sylvan is 5 per person so be aware of that. I was out there 2 weeks ago and did ok. Again two limits of nice gills and a handful of pike but it took a lot of work to find them. I’m unsure of the walleye fishing out there but have heard it’s a good lake. Im not an expert on sylvan but know a little so hope this helps ya out. Good luck!

      Thanks Cliff. I am coming up for my week of paradise tomorrow as well.

      The last two times on the river have been slow to say the least. Trolled Shipping channels, river channels, and all the flats. Crawler harnesses and crank baits. Anybody having any luck out there?
    • gimruis
      If the water is that clear and you can see 17-20 feet down, the fish will be very spooky.  And if the sun is out, they will be looking for relief from the sun in the form of shade.  Night time might actually be a better option.
    • gimruis
      Not terrible.  But they can be merciless, I will tell you.
    • Mike89
      below the darn is a park there too if I remember right, Plus Garden City has a park by the river too I think..
