swan lake

I was just asked by a co-worker if I would take her son duck hunting on Sat for the Take A Kid Hunting day. I have not done any duck hunting in Southern MN yet, and was wondering if Swan Lake near Nicollet would be a wise choice. How early would we have to get out there to get a decent place to hunt? Does it fill up there for this day just as bad as I heard it does for opener? Thanks in advance for any info!

set the drag

yeah you'll run into a crowd were ever you take a kid hunting unless your outside nicollet county. Maybe hit the river!! The local ponds get hammered by the locals and I heard that some of the dads R *****s around here if you park to close "Its for the kids not for the kill" I remember some of those take a kid hunting days I shot more that day than any other day of the season. Good Luck

Thanks for the info. I will probably stay away from there then. It'll be his first duck hunt, and I am sure he would get some birds there,.....but I guess I'll take my chances, and try hit some less pressured water.

dustin85, where about do you live at? hunting on hanska during early goose the ducks were all over, off the hanska landing side. also clear lake by new ulm or the one by gibbon are usually a good bet for ducks.

      Nice video! Life jackets not needed in Yak's?  Just asking.

      Cigar guy, you got a good deal. They look like size 7 which is what I use the most for summer walleyes. Fleet Farm had all Rapalas 25% off last week so I stocked up.  I've used them a lot in the last 2-3 years.  If you fish them on rocks... you will lose some.  I try not to use them over the real bad snaggy stuff but sometimes I still do and usually end up losing one.  It takes a little practice, but they work well when you get it down.

      Funny, I first heard of this on LOTW also about 8-10 years ago.  They're tasty but honestly I often forget about doing it.

      Finally warm weather has arrived in Minnesota and I decided to hit the river for the first trip of the year in the Kayak. Felt good to be on open water after a very long winter. Even managed a few rough fish to get warmed up for the year!  Video: https://youtu.be/0gYDiOVH3As

      Spending some time in the turkey blind as it’s on solid ground. Had some jakes behind me but they don’t want to play. It’s okay as the have a free pass for now. In a couple weeks they will not have a free pass. If they would have come out I would have taken some photos. Lots for noise as everything is excited by the warm weather.

      Now that sounds like a plan.

      Sure. The good thing is if you have too many cocktails and fall off the dock you will not have to worry about drowning.  People are going to have a long walk to go swimming out of the Waskish beach. Hard to believe that 3 years ago the dock floated up off the support poles so we had to put in a few longer ones. The dock was right up to the predator guard below the wood duck houses.
