Fishing For Ducks 2019

Recommended Posts

jgrimmz

Anybody going to the Ducks Unlimited Fishing for Ducks tournament tomorrow? I wanted to post this earlier in the week but kept getting an error when loading the site. 

 

I will be there with a couple buddies, first time for all of us. We won't be in town for the festivities tonight but plan to arrive bright and early tomorrow morning. Is it usually a mixed bag of species, or just the typical Mille Lacs walleye, perch, and occasional bass? I haven't decided what bait I want to use, probly end up with everything. 

 

I'm excited!

      Definitely possession limits have to be looked at a little more seriously. A person would be amazed how many of the same guys you see fish the same lake day after day keeping fish. The only positive with the 5 fish limit is they are at least keeping less then they would if the limit was 20 bluegill. If it were 20 they would have a 100 a week versus 25. Sad but true no matter how we all want to look at it. Many fisherman are way over there possession limits, Freezers are full we all know of people who have big fish fry's every year and its definitely not boxed cod there serving 😉 With the lack of CO's out there enforcement is tough even with the TIP hotline.

      Hawk, 20# in Minnesota really is a trophy! I always thought there were good Pike in the Horseshoe chain when I fished it but never really got into any. Thanks for replying.

      Your Mille Lacs fish is a chunk! Your Red Lake fish looks like the 42" I got in Minnesota. That one also was around 17#.

      My two personal best from MN all caught accidently walleye fishing. Never personally Target pike in  MN. Only place I have is Canada. First one was a 42 inch CPR on the Horseshoe chain of lakes right around 20lbs in OCT pitching Husky jerks up on a shallow sand flat targeting eyes, That one stopped it felt like I hooked a tree 👍. Second personal MN best came up on Rainy River Spring 41 3/4 never weighed it, pitching a 3/8 ounce jig and  B-fish-N pulse R for eyes. Didn't hit as hard but fought hard especially in the river current.

      My opener plans will not change.Stop and get bait/snacks at the gas station when fueling the boat/truck.This all done in one stop that would need to be made eventually to get fuel anyhow.Drive to the landing,not speaking or having contact with anyone while not touching anything.This has been my routine for the past few weeks and will continue to be for the near future whether around home or up north.They can cancel whatever they like,I will be fishing.I noticed i cant get a haircut but i can pack into the liquor store with plenty of other people and buy booze.Makes sense right?

      And if they aren't eating those fish regularly they are over their possession limit in no time at all.  Lower possession limits at the same time - 20 is just too dang high, and as history has shown us, unsustainable.  
    • eyeguy 54
      Yes thats a fake background. 😉

      Two at 41 inches. Red lake and mille lacs. First one when fishing for eyes. Second one chasing northern with tip up. 17 pounds from Red. Didn’t weigh the one from mille lacs.

      Could you explain how this would violate the Governor's order? I don't recall him including this in the order.   Also, the part where you say buying tackle is a violation of his order because it would not be essential. One part of his order is that it is essential to get outside. There is medical support for this in both physical and mental health. Fishing is not canceled because it is one way to get outside and an easy way to apply social distancing for our own health. In this case, stopping at the bait shop to pick up tackle would be an essential. Stopping at the bait shop to just browse would not be essential and that would be a violation of the governor's orders. Two different things.   What the governor's order does say is that if we are going out and about we must use precautions and exercise social distancing guidelines.    If you don't feel comfortable being out and about, maybe part of the problem is that you have cooped yourself up too much and are becoming too depressed. There is medical evidence to support this hypothesis.

      Mine in MN is only 35" and caught at least 3 that big targeting pike, though I don't intentionally target large pike and am not a fan of musky fishing.  I've netted up to 38" for others in MN.  In Canada it is 45".  Talk about not a big enough net!  My younger brother was the net man and when he saw it coming up with the mouth open he turned around and handed the net to my other brother.  Net did not work anyway we had to grab it almost swamped the boat.  Happily let it go unharmed fortunately.
