Ha ha ha!!!!! You're a good Dad, Mr.Caswell!

Hate it more when those doggone birds dive and don't come back up!!! mad Such a waste.

It's more of a training issue with the dogs " coming in empty is a bad thing" I'm guessing there is a Eagle out there tonight that has a full belly on our behalf, nothing goes to waste..

That coot is quite a trophy

I agree not much of a trophy but alot better eating than most "ducks" ( including the " real ducks" )

You can make ANY game bird taste OK in a Stick, Brat, or summer sausage, but when treated like a fine Beef Steak, it's tough to tell a Coot from a Mallard....

And most toss them in the trash but a Coot has a HUGE Gizzard......

I'm skeptical..........lol

If they were at all edible, other than in some gumbo , there would be boatloads of them being shot.

chub its just a stigma thing nothing more nothing less. Just like why most people wont eat bass or whatever. Just becuase your grampa told your dad who told you that bass, coot, bullhead, whatever are terrible then you think that. Big pet peeve of mine. Ive cleaned a couple coots and they are no different in color than any duck breast and they all go in the jerky bag anyways so you couldnt tell the difference even if u tried. Same goes for deep fried walleye and bass or whatever. Again you cant tell the difference even if u tried. Think outside the box guy, dont be a follower. Now as far as sport goes, yes no doubt a coot is a dumber and much easier bird to shoot a ton of then say a mallard or other ducks.

From the field to the fridge in 5 days. Goose and duck summer sausage. Local sausage kitchen makes it for $3.50 a pound.

Looks good and not a bad price considering it's tough to find pork for under 3.00 per pound...

Fhg.....

Stigma's are what keep us seperated from the savages. Lol

Never shot, let alone thought about eating a coot. Just as I've never been hungry enough to eat(or attempt to), a merganser. I grew up eating Smallmouths, my old man chopped up and fried every one he could get his hands on. I know what they taste like, and I nearly gag at the thought..... .lol

Chub -

You eat bluebills, buffs, and goldies? Same as a merg... Trust me.

I don't like the taste of any of the above unless they are eaten fresh and cooked to medium rare.

As for the guy that can't tell the difference between deep fried bass and walleye... that's ok, there are "tasters" and "non-tasters"

I eat all kinds of odd stuff and it all has a definite flavor. There's a reason mergs aren't on the preferred list of most people. They ain't that good and it takes some serious effort & appreciation of strong flavor to make them edible.

Eating jerky or sausage doesn't exactly represent the flavor of the beast...

I took all my ducks from ND and had them made into sweet and sassy stix at Dehmers in St Michael.

14 lbs of breasts total.

$3.50 a lb as well. Pork mixed in. Not sure how they did it for that price, but I dont care. they turned out fantastic.

They will make any flavor you want. Just has to be a full batch(25 lbs is a full batch, before the weight lost after smoking).

I got 17 lbs of stix to take home at $3.50 a lb.

I was really surprised yesterday morning when I saw a few Greater Canadian's hanging on our backyard river shoreline. I'm way up in NW Minnesota!

I aways chuckle when I read about 20 pounders. This one hit 13 on the digital fish scale. It is a huge bird. There are 20 pounders out there but they are such a small subspecies that it rules out the majority of claims. A true 20 locked up must look similar to the small Cessna that I first learned to fly in.

      On the south end...  Great fall walleye fishing again this week.  As the traditional deer hunting opener approaches, walleye fishing is typically in high gear.  This pattern is holding true.  Various spots along the south shore are producing nicely.  The walleyes and sauger are active.  These fish are also setting up nicely for ice fishing which is just around the corner with water temps in the upper 40's. Anchored up and jigging with a fathead or emerald shiner is the go to method.  Live shiners are available and effective.  Some anglers are still pulling spinners with a minnow or trolling crankbaits with good success.  Gold, pink, white and chartreuse hot colors this week. The best reports are coming from 17-27 feet of water across the south shore in areas such as Pine Island, Morris Point, Zippel Bay, Graceton Beach, Long Point and Rocky Point.  Various schools within these depths.  In addition to walleyes and saugers, pike, jumbo perch, sturgeon and even a few crappies are in the mix for walleye anglers.  On the Rainy River...   Nice pockets of walleyes being caught in the river.  Jigging with a frozen or live shiner, is the go to method.  Emerald shiners are tough to beat.   Some groups are trolling crankbaits in the river and because of their consistency, they never switch.  Also great in locating walleyes or when fish are scattered.    Sturgeon activity with cooler water is good with numerous fish caught and released. Up at the NW Angle...  Fall fishing up at the Angle continues strong.  Most anglers are using a jig and minnow or jig and plastic (when boating into Canada) for walleyes.  In some areas, walleyes continue to be stacked and big numbers of fish are being caught.   Gold, pink and/or glow colored jigs and spinners are doing well.  Reminder, no live, frozen or dead bait being able to be transported over the border from the U.S. into Canada, consequently anglers boating into Ontario waters reporting various plastics on their jigs and spinners working great. Various areas of structure such as points, reefs and sandy areas in neck down areas continue to hold good fish.  12 - 26 feet is the range depending upon the spot.   Big crappies are being caught on jigs and minnows in 24-30' adjacent to structure. Muskie action continues to be strong.  Jigging large baits has boated good numbers of fish as well as casting and trolling.  Travel to and from the Angle via vehicle through the 40 miles of Canada is open.  Boating into Canadian waters is now open.   Want to avoid crossing the border?  Charter transport via water and ice and flights over the lake are available through the LOW Passenger Service and Lake Country Air both this fall and into the winter months via ice.
