HUNTER2

Went over to LQP this mourning for some goose action. Really dead. Only 2000 geese on the refuge. I think we need some cold weather up north.

Fairimont area has plenty of ducks. We have been shooting 4 or five every time we go. There are also quite a few geese.

I have been noticing more and more geese floating into Austin. Hopefully I will get to them this week.

Long Gray Line

Went out this morning just north of the TC, saw lots of teal and woodies still around. The way they were flying (low and with destinations in mind!) they still must be local birds. The mallards are grouping larger, 15 - 20 birds with very few singlies and twosies winging around.

Had hunter2 out on Mud by New London (actually the river off of Dilley's landing) this morning. Typical story of should have been here yesterday. Between sheets of rain we managed to boat 2 woodies and a teal. Lots of ducks moving Sat. Be careful of Cans in the area. Immature and hard to ID. Off to ND next weekend. Any reports for the Oakes area?

Jefferson area has ducks to be had. There is so much new water in the fields the mallards were hard to come by. Woodies and teal, a few divers. We had a pair of cans suck right in, nice. Yes the flew unharmed. From Madison lake south we saw very few birds. Sounds like west and north of our location is the place to be. Hey walleyepimp, I didn`t know you were a local goose hunter? I`m sure iv`e seen or run into you afield before. I mainly drive a black and gray ranger with a black topper. Pull in and say hey some time. Flip

What a weekend. Found a picked corn field that was flooded. Set up Sunday morning and five of us bagged 19 Mallards, 5 Pintails, 4 Woodducks and 2 Widgeons. Most fun I've had in a long time.

Flip,
I drive a black and grey dodge with a topper and a Rapala sticker on the back.

Hunted a field tonight. Had plenty of action but could'nt get them to commit to their death. We did luckily scrape 1 short of our limit.

Where's Duckaholic's report? If you read this Duck, I'll be hunting around "Shooters" Thurs. thru Sunday. Don't know exact dates, but I'll be around, are you?

For my report(s). Slow around Otter Tail County, but there are people who are having success. Mainly young, "local" mallards, woodies and occasional ringbills. I haven't experienced anything hot, except when I worked a river I found lots of birds. I haven't seen any new birds yet, but last Sat. there was a lot of migrations heading south.
Good huntin'!

Flip,
Have'nt been to Walnut for about a week and a half. Hunted Hickory Lake the other eve. Saw lots of geese but no shots.
I have to work all this weekend if the weather stays fair. Planning on hitting Walnut next Tues.
No solid report from Mankato area all my friends are in ND for the next 10 days. I have been trying to study for upcoming tests but I can't focus because it has been so long since I have shot anything.

Hey pimp, thanks and are you seeing any ducks on Hickory? I`m planning on Jefferson on sat. anyhow. Kinda gotta go. Elysion is worth a check if there are any divers down. I`ll let you know. For you fellas up nort, If you could send a, here they come, when them bombers start flocking south. Us duckers down south are looking for em. Thanks Flip

Fair success in the Crex Meadows near Grantsburg WI, Mostly teal and woodies until last weekend. All this week has been closed and the Bluebills & Northern Mallards are showing up in droves.

Morning seems better. I hope the nasty weather keeps them low to the ground this weekend!

Good Luck!

Finding some birds on the western side of the metro. Plenty of woodies and teal around but the divers are *petering* in. Haven't seen any good numbers of mallards yet, but it seems to be changing daily. I seen quite a few Canvasbacks today and had a pair sit 10 yards from my boat this morning. I also had a FAT drake bluebill sit down on the outside of my decoy line.

There are lots of birds sitting on lake Minnetonka .. makes it hard to pull them into your decoys 10 miles away.

Checked most of the lakes south of Mankato to the state line and east. Saw some nice flocks of cans and a few ringbills. Not many ducks on the lakes this far south yet. Tomarrow is another day! Flip

    • KidMoe
      With that detail Borch I could spend all summer trying the different suggestions and combos! Very well done sir!    I might have to venture away from Pool 4 to try out some clearer water for night time eyes!

      Just meaning trout  waters that have natural population of trout that are born and grow in the water their entire life.  Green pumpkin, browns, watermelons, black, silver/ blue, some orange. Colors those fish are used too. Insects, Minnows, crawdads etc.

      I was up last weekend(Memorial Day weekend) at the cabin on Birch Point. Where my electronics reading right that water was 64-66 degrees? Also tried up in the shallows in the pencil reads and sandy rocky bottoms of big bay, the side of the point our cabin is on, hoping to find crappies on beds, but nothing. Seems like the perfect area and water temp for all other lakes I’ve fished and there was nothin. Not a sight of beds or fish. Maybe there just isn’t good crappie numbers there? Anyone will to share some shallows for sight fishing on beds? And info on that water temp or what it currently is. and if that was right, is that still not warm enough for vermillion? Gonna be up the weekend of 6/5 to try again, and hoping to not miss it this week. Thank you

      Thanks for the input, Patches and good to hear you did well in the area.   Johnson lake is a memorable one for me. I fished there for the first time about two years ago around the last week of June and as soon as we drove past Frontier my pin clip for the boat trailer fell off. Never found out why and never happened again, but I noticed it gone at the launch. I was with a buddy of mine and my father, and I told them to just troll near the launch while I went back to look for the clip. After about 15 more minutes I found it in the middle of road, right outside Pine Cone Cafe.   By the way, it was overcast with the occasional sprinkle, but the sun would spill out as well. When i got back to the launch I noticed my two fisherman pals where not eager to come pick me up. In about 20 minutes they caught 3 walleye trolling spinners in about the 10-12 foot weed line outside of the launch.  We kept one feeling we were deserving giving the circumstance, but as soon as I got in the boat luck failed us again. We trolled the whole lake and only caught one more on the east side. The weather kept getting better which was probably the reason, but it seems like Johnson is like most likes in the area... where if there is a hot walleye bite its not going to last too long.    My Dad went out on Burrows the other day and got nothing too exciting besides northern while fishing the same tactic.  Thats one of our "go tos," but Im currenty not in the area, but getting there soon. Hopefully i bring better reports come as well.   Good Luck

      There's one on Craigslist in the free section. It's in rough shape, but the floats look good. Brooklyn Park.

      Smallmouth should be on beds spawning. Good time to fish smallmouth. Fishing off shallow water off rocky islands on East side of Vermilion should be in play. Troll and throw spinners to shore.  Look for line where big rocks end and small rocks/gravel starts.
