Cory,

What's Rush doing? I hope you're so busy hauling in fish that you have no time us fools sitting at work.

I'm going to do a swing through the southern section of this area this afternoon doing a little waterfowl scouting. I'll post my observations later.

Saw two bucks chasing a doe around the field tonight. They were grunting and snortimg and really hoping to get a little action from her. Finally the larger 8 pointer locked horns with the 4 pointer and the little guy left pretty quickly. The 8 point finally chased the doe out of sight. she is probably still running. Neither was close enogh for a shot with my bow, but tomorrow morning I will be using a different weapon. I will post again if my slug hits it's mark in the morning. wish me luck!

Boy, you'd think in driving some 90 to 100 miles of pavement and dirt you'd see a duck or someone fishing. I saw neither. I did see lots of deer hunters getting ready around the Carlos Avery area. I've got to imagine it sounded much like a war this morning.

The Carlos Avery sloughs did have an impressive number of waterfowl. But there was no way I was going to hunt that firing range today. So, I raked. Pretty lame. And, I call myself an outdoorsman? Tomorrow, I'll give a slough in north of Cambridge a try. Look for an update in the waterfowl section.

Someone throw us bone here. Anyone fishing in the area? How was your deer outing? Anyone...anyone...anyone!

here is a bone and not much more. been fishing on little green sat. and today with out much luck. A few bass ( few and far between ) in what left of the weeds close to shore. the eye's on sat. night left me and about half dozen other guys alone in the narrow's and Sunday the small perch were hot. haha so if you find anything bitting through me a bone I need one before I unpack the ice gear! saw a lot of ducks flying high and fast over the war zone.

Hey Guys,

Not much for me to report on Rush.....I have been spending entirely WAY too much time in a tree stand! Bow Hunting has been getting hot, Unfotunately for me rifle seasn started and from the shots I heard all weekend it sounded like everybody got in some good shooting! I was out on Friday for a few hours with a buddy of mine, and it was poor, to say the least.

As far as ducks in the area they are pretty much non-existant except for some geese.

Hopefully I can get out more now that rifle season has started.. I will keep you posted!

      The water temp had dropped to anywhere between 44 to 40, depending on where you were. Saw as low as 37 in Bystrom Bay. The temp we saw the most was 41.  It’s cold!

      A bit of a hike in, but well worth it, Mud Lake off the Inchon Trail I'm sure.....maybe we can meet up Brian and Tracie, I'll bring the potatoes and baked beans 😎

      Probably Lake Alott.   It kinda looks like a lot. 😉
    • Agronomist_at_IA
      I seen on JR's Facebook they had a pic of a tournament on upper red.  It showed a #8, #12.6, #14.4 and a #15 walleye......I thinking this was some kinda joke....can anyone enlighten me. When I talked to a guide a year or so ago I asked him how many #10 walleye he seen come out of upper red......he said he hadn't seen one since he started to guide.    
    • Agronomist_at_IA
      After reading all the post and having gone to upper red once a year sometimes twice (Started renting shacks then got a wheel house 3 yrs ago) for the past eleven years. I find this entire thread and topic somewhat laughable. The locals and resorts seem to complain about an issue they've brought upon themselves. I kinda agree with the post you've put up to a point.    Here is my view.....maybe it is wrong. I drive 7+ hours from Northwest Iowa pay the fees to fish in Minnesota for a couple days. Pay the resort fees for roads, pay for services at the resorts. I tend to buy fuel, bait, propane, and food at the places we use, and sometimes other services. These people make a living using the lake to BRING the business to them. Then when they get the people to the lake and get some money flowing and are having success with people showing up.......the big problem is trash......Seems pretty simple to me if your a resort......figure out trash management for you customers. They showed up and are using the services you provide. A simple $5 tagged onto a road fee with avalible dumpsters could solve the problem. I actually have never had any issues with trash on my trips....so I'm a bit supprised by all this. I mean people are going through the resorts for services and willing to pay. If $5 was a deal breaker.....then why wouldn't people just go out of the public acess points, and not pay any resort fees.   The first 7yrs the guide we use had a trailer on the lake and had his customers throw tied off bags of trash in it. Then he disposed of it. The last three years with my shack the resort we went out of had a dumpster to throw the trash in. I'd gone out of JR's Access, West Winds, and Rogers. When We came off the lake we stopped in and asked if we could throw our trash away....they always said yeah put it in the dumpster.

      Thanks. That's one of the ones that I was considering.

      The water temps were 44-47 degrees over most of the lake this weekend. Black Bay partially froze Friday night into Saturday.
    • SkunkedAgain
      I saw a lot of guys running planner boards. We braved the cold ride Friday and Saturday, going from the far west end over near Shamrock. We spot locked in the wind and had pretty good success with the 11-13" walleyes but nothing of size except a few beautiful jumbo perch. We just used jigs in 30-35ft of water with rainbow minnows, the smaller the better. Big minnows were useless.   We didn't stay at any of the west end locations too long, but mostly because we weren't marking fish and weren't getting any bites. I would have liked to work longer for the bigger fish.

      Care to share where in Ripley this feeding flat is?  Maybe I shoot a deer and catch fish in Ripley this year!😁

      As usual Curt, thanks for all the reports you provide to us folks that only get up to LOW 4-5 times/year.  Coming up again for the MEA weekend, fishing Thursday-Saturday.  Looks like Thursday's going to be nice with warmer temps and WSW winds.  If we get the heavy WNW winds on Saturday, is the LP area fishable.  Seems like the more west it is the comfort level goes up dramatically.  Bringing the kids this trip, so there not real big fans of the 4-5 footers if you know what I mean.  Hope to see ya Thursday, we'll be in a 2150 Lund and 18.5 Alumacraft.
