Reply on its way.
Like I said, you'll have to get there EARLY. I'd even consider sleeping out there overnight, at least that way you can find your spot during daylight. Otherwise 2-3 am would be a good bet. Early yes, but if you want the best spot on a really good goose spot......

Hello All,

I know that this is very late notice but I just ran into a very bad situation. I have had a cut oats field locked up to use for over a month from a farmer in Waverly, MN. The farmer told me that his brother-in-law wanted to hunt with us but it would only be him. So I went to meet him last Sunday and he told me that he was bringing all these people along to hunt with him. He never told the farmer anything about this. He went on to tell me that if we wanted to hunt with them that we would need to hunt in his spot in the field that they wanted. Needless to say at this point I could see where this was going. After meeting with him I called the farmer who owned that land told him about this situation and he was upset and embarrassed that this had happened. To make a long story short. I have no field to hunt in and there was a family feud started. The worst part is that I had 4 of my buddies relying on me for the field and now we don't have to place to hunt. If anyone knows of a field that is not being used please let me know. I may even be willing to play out some cash if it comes down to that. Sorry again for the late notice.

Tom -

I would like to thank you again. It would be nice to get out there and hunt but one of the biggest issues is the about 90% of my decoys are shells that can't be used on the water. I am still hoping for a last minute prayer that we will be able to hunt some land.

So Tom...about this great spot? I'm looking for a good early goose spot, only own a few goose floaters and have struck out on getting on land. My dog and I are able to head out on Tuesdays since I have that day off. Weekends are full, but at least on Tues. there's no crowd. I'd love a tip if you're willing to share, my yellow lab would love to bring in some canada's (his 2nd year). I understand of you can't share your spots with all of us though. Thanks!

Yea, its kinda the old "Ye who asks first" kinda thing. Really dont want to send too many people there as the locals will have my head.

Clue- It's within an hour of Willmar.

Within 1 hour of Wilmar you say, that narrows it down to about 1000 bodies of water!! I guess I'll have to check them all smile.gif
I'll be out on some slough and we'll find 'em (hopefully). If nothing else, great time to scout ducks!
Good luck, only 2 1/2 more days!

      Last night my son and out went out for quick panfish trip to a local lake after dinner. Did not have any live bait but we usually do well tossing small jigs/plastics. Surprisingly we were the only boat at the landing and the only boat out fishing on this heavily developed lake. It did not take us long to find the huge sunnies. They were really stacked in 4-6'. The lake was pretty calm and we could hundreds of them swimming under the boat. We didn't stay there long but they were very aggressive. I had one that touched 10" and a few others over 9. We did not keep any. Looking for active crappies we went to spot number 2. Again going super shallow we could see quite a few in 2-3' around there beds. They of course were pretty spooky and did not like the boat being so close. We backed out and tossed into and around lilly pads. We ended up catching about a dozen. All released. I wish I wouldn't have left my phone in the truck as I would have loved to get a picture. Just amazing how black they are right now! Again didn't stay very long. Just a quick trip to scratch the itch..

      Saturday Norwegian Bay was 50-51 degrees. After the cold wind the sun showed up and baked it all day Sunday. By Monday afternoon Temps were around 62 with Black Bay reaching 65-66.  We left Tuesday Morning so I'm sure the fishing is suddenly on fire. I'm surprised that when I walk down the seafood aisle in the grocery store that the shelves don't suddenly go bare.

      I upgraded my electronics this year to a Humminbird Helix 10. I love it so far with the exception of not being able to split the screen into 4 separate screens. The max that you can do is 3. I would really like to be able to have the map, sonar, down imaging, and side imaging on the screen at the same time while trolling. I emailed tech support and they said it's not something that is an option at this time. Right now when I'm fishing I switch back and forth between map, sonar, and DI and sonar, DI, and SI. Is there anyone else that thinks this should be an option? I don't know see why you can't customize the screen to show whichever features you prefer instead of only using the preloaded options that Humminbird decided on. I have thought about emailing the company weekly asking if they have that ability yet but wanted to see if anyone else thinks it should be an option.

      Awesome fish. Still some freak crappies in the vermillion river, but don't know if 5 lbs has been approached since.  Not world record news but North Dakota had a state record walleye caught recently. 15lb 13oz. Broke record that stood since 1959. Still a few pounds off Minnesota record 😏
