Thinking about going out to ortinville this comming weekend is it worth it yet. i would think with this cold weather it would push some ducks down, or is it too early. I usually don't make it out there until mid oct. for the first trip during MEA.

The early northern birds aren't down yet. I'm talking about the greenwings and widgeon. I have been seeing a few more bluebills and buffle around the area out here but alot of the locals are still around. Even with the colder weather the bluewings and the woodies are still sticking around. The weather is suppose to be nice like 50-70 during the nights and days for about a week so I would say that the northern brids won't be down for another good week, week and a half that's granted the weather cools down. Those locals are really starting to wise up also but you should deffinatley get some action especailly if there other hunters pushing the birds. Good luck this weekend maybe see you out there.

I am going to hunt the ortonville area this weekend for the first time. A friend and I are planning on finding some public land and scouting around. Can anyone give me good starting point or some areas to avoid. Any info is appreciated, Thanks.

Johnsonator, I just picked up the Minnesota Atlas at Gander Mountain ($20.00) and it has every WMA listed in the state in detail. You would find this to be a useful tool.... I do.

Ortonville is a good choice,we were on the North side of there last weekend saw tons of ducks.

Be warned to check the rule book though, the LQP goose zone will be closed soon.You can't hunt geese,ducks or upland game there according to the laws I read last week.

      The water in Cannon lake is the clearest I've ever seen it. You can see the bottom in 5ft easily. Caught a few perch and a striped bass. Also saw some big bass around the fishing pier by the beach.

      Dang ,,, Another nice day to be out on the water on Fish Lake  ,,, Too bad the fish didn't think it was nice enough to eat what we offered !! Might have to switch bodies of water!!!

      Lake Sylvia is great for bass also lake Francis near Kimball is good too a little smaller but great action! The Mississippi sounds fun I should try it myself.

      Update.  Minnesota American Legion and other volunteers succeeded Thursday, May 17, 2018, in cutting the giant North Long Lake bog into three sections. The bog came to rest on the beach of an American Legion camp. The plan is to move the middle section to open up the beach, then relocate the other two back to the bog’s original position on the lake north of Brainerd, Minn. (Forum News Service)

      The Minnesota record is almost that big, it's over 5lbs and it was caught in the Vermillion river in southern Minnesota back in the late 50's I believe.   "Ace"

      You need to go west or perhaps north of Pine island if you don't want to go that far.   "Ace"   "It's just fishing man"

      I spoke to a buddy who was at Sag over the weekend, and my dad who was fishing a lake a bit north of Leech - none of them had much luck on walleye. I'm chalking it up to a walleye blackout across the northern part of the state. I just need an excuse for the rest of the trips I take! We're talking about coming up again in the fall. I definitely would like to come back for a longer trip, there is so much more of the lake to explore

      It usually pays off finding your own fish.   Nice report.
