Scouting for toms

Recommended Posts

I have been numbers of birds in smaller groups now. There is a group of jakes I am seeing every day on public ground. Toms are seeming to be in pairs or threes yet. I have seen a few hens but they were in small groups as well. It is getting close.

It's nice to see them now, but come season in another month, their home ranges may be quite different from what it is now.

Well that is true but on the private land that still has standing beans and corn. I don't see them leaving anytime soon or ever. The public land birds will move to their normal hang outs. I still like seeing them breaking up compared to huge winter flocks.

With only like 2 weeks to ago who chomping at the bit to sit in the blind. I woke up this morning to vivid dream of two double gobbling toms working into my spread. In my dream my nephew got trigger finger and blasted my hen decoy.

Turkeys on the brain! It does not help at work anotherguy is turkey hunter. He keeps sending videos or coming over to show me decoys. When I left Friday he was calling in the parking lot. He made a count down on my cube wall. I can't wait to spend time in the blind. 

 

We talked about using a deer decoy as confidence builder for turkeys. Or not wearing camo as turkeys seem to know when you are not hunting them. It was getting out of control on Friday.

      Hey every one,
      my old lohman wood duck finally bit the big one, so I am in the market for realistic sounding wood duck call. My old lohman would stop woodies in their tracks, but I heard the duck commander wood duck call and it sounded off. Please let me know what you use and how it work thank you.

      Hey I was curious to see if there were any active fishing clubs near whitebear lake or forest lake 
    • Dave S
      I think the largest was maybe 10". Didn't notice any tullibee cruising through but it's very possible.  Just surprised that if they were there, that we didn't get any.   There was a small walleye that came top side as well.

      Well before light. Try to be on  ice fishing  before daybreak normally. Early bird gets the worm has always been my philosophy. 😉 Nothing better IMO than  watching the sun rise a ,hot cup of coffee and fish on my vex its like a dream I never want to end 😀 I will  fish in midday afternoon if Im on a more relaxed schedule. We can make anything work.

      Well done Dave ! Get any 13 inch Plus? Hook any tullies or see any in that area ?
    • IceHawk
      Smurfy that N end is always busy in winter very productive area easy access. Been like that for over 30 plus years that I've fished it. Pretty consistent bite in the N bay every year unless they go on a freshwater shrimp kick then they can be tough to entice at times 😲 A bunch of untapped water on that S end but a few guys venture out there and find fish. Town bay area is generally a good spot as Millers bay.

      Well I went out tonight for a short amount of time before dark. I had my son(2.5) and wife along so didn't have a lot of time to scout or fish. There were only two other permanents on the lake that I could see from the public landing. There was a plowed road and 4 trucks in the parking lot. We set up in 14' of water but never marked anything. I'll head back another time. Thanks for the tip Rick!

      Passed you up workin those docks today, figured I'd throw a chatter bait around the pads down that shoreline ...... Purple was good today 😉

      We started in the area I mentioned to you this morning but the small perch were relentless and saw nothing else there. We made a move again and couldn't believe my eyes. 60 FOW and suspended  20 feet up. They didn't just cover the water column between 40-50 feet. THEY SMOTHERED IT. As you can see from the pic, we had a Garmin Live Scope with us. Holy Cow is all I can say. It helped us mobilize and follow the fish but the lure choice and color selection was critical. It sure started getting busy out there by the time we left 😆.
