Last Weekend of Season


Seabass77

Recommended Posts

Well, the last hours of pheasant hunting are upon us and with the Mille Lacs tournament being cancelled, I think I might have to go out and work on getting my first bird. I just started hunting this fall and haven’t had a chance to fire my gun anywhere but the gun range. I hope to change all that this weekend. Does anyone have any tips on where to hunt?? Anyone else going out this weekend?? I was thinking Danvers maybe.

well there is some birds in the danvers slough but i dont know if u can get to them because last weekend i was home and the snow was so crunchy and the birds were really wild and the sloughs werent frozen enough. but if u wanna get wet u might get a rooster. goodluck

Seabass, I'm totally depressed about the MilleLacs tourney. I have also decided to ditch the fish and go with the birds. E-mail me if you are interested in blowing some holes in the sky on Sun. I know that part of the state very well.

Paul,
Thanks for the invite...unfortunately, I didn't get it until today. I hope that you had some luck. I didn't fair so well, I only saw one bird and the sloughs were not frozen enough to walk on. There's always next year. I look forward to meeting you at one of the other tournaments. Will you be fishing any of them??

Seabass,

I called out there and talked with some of my cousins and they told me about the slough conditions. As I'm trying to shake a nasty cold decided to forgo it. Sounds like I didn' miss much frown.gif

We'll definately have to set something up for next year.

I will be at the rest of the tourneys. I'm helping Gullguide out wth weigh-ins etc. Just got off of the phone with Roger's on Upper Red about a sleeper house smile.gif Bring on those "slab" crappies grin.gif

Will you be on Winni?

      Hi all - new to the forum.  I live in NE Wyoming and am an avid fly fisherman.  While I love fishing for trout out west, warm water species on the fly is a blast.   Me and a buddy are headed out this coming weekend for a BWCA trip.  We have a couple of days on the front end of the trip to fish.  I'm planning on towing my drift boat from NE Wyoming and have spot picked out in North Dakota to float for smallies on the fly.  I'm looking at trying to get an additional float in somewhat near Ely before our entry into the Boundary Waters.  It's a 16' drift boat and doesn't really draft much.  I'm planning on having a small trolling motor just in case I need some additional power.  Looking mainly to target smallmouth and pike.   I've looked at a few areas to float, but wanted some advice.  I have a few options that I think meet what I'm looking for:   1) St. Louis River near Hoyt Lakes.  Looked like there are couple of access points to launch and take out below Hwy 110 2) Cloquet River - Hwy 7 to the mouth. 3) Bigfork River - From Ivan Crawford to Reedy Flats   Can anyone provide any advice these or provide any other recommendations?   Thanks in advance!

      I have been doing pretty good bass fishing locally.  A lot of numbers, but lacking in really big quality fish that I have caught the last two seasons.  Biggest I could catch this season so far is 18 inches.

      Welcome to the forum. Downriggers work best for suspended fish in deep water. Most river's are shallow and rocky. If you want to fish the bottom in a river a bottom bouncer might be best to not lose a lot of expensive gear. Imo. Good luck.

      I have a Cannon Optima and Iam anxious to try downriggers for walleye.  There is a bottom tracking feature on Optima.  I think most walleyes are close to bottom so I think it is a good tactic.  I am, however, nervous about using Fishhawk XD4 with on river.  A screwup would really be expensive!

      i'm not real involved yet. my first meeting. long story but my parents belonged to it years ago. after the cabin lake had the 2 consecutive years of severe winterkill i dogged the heck out of the fisheries people in grand rapids.🤭 i found out through the watershed assoc they talked them into restocking sunfish and bass into the lake. they did that this past june. so i figured for the 15 bucks join!!!!!   my next battle is with the township......🤣 trying to get them to grade part of our road going into the cabin!!!!! i already sent the letter but havent heard from them yet. since i've retired from being a union thug.......i gotta pick a few battles to keep my skills sharp!!!!!!!!🤪🤭👍

      That's awesome that you are involved in that! I hope you have a good trip up!

      I'm heading up sometime the last week in Aug . I joined the Jessie lake watershed assoc and they have a meeting on the 27 I want to attend.

      Definitely in the dog days of summer. Catching a few walleye here and there on the river. Hasn't been too hot which makes me hopeful for an early fall fishing season. I'll post more when the fish turn their feed bags on and the leaves start falling. Until then I'll just work more and get winter gear ready

      Word to the wise. Never click on a Bot post with a highlighted link!  Unless you want cuddies on your system! 😛
