For the longest time I have wanted to shoot a bull canvasback. Last year I took a kid with lukemia (sp) out hunting for the first time. His first ever bird was a bull can. Maybe next year. smile.gif

Tealitup, that is a nice story. I bet it was just as good or better knowing you were the one that got him that big bull can.

That should be in the reason #1 thread instead of idiotic posts like "whack and stack em". That bull can for the little cancer kid is probably one of the best birds harvested anywhere last year teal! Congrats to him and GREAT JOB to you for making it happen!!!

Yea, it was the best time I have had hunting for a long time. That day I did not fire a shot, but he had about a box of shells on the ground. I got the bull can back from the taxidermist and going to give it to him this next weekend. He still talks about the hunt and wants to go next year. His mom hates me for buying him a duck call.

Good for you Tealitup.

That is the best thing I have read on this site as of lately.

Who needs to read all this junk when I can read something like you posted.

Thanks for sharing.

If you ever need another bird mounted for another kid just let me know. I might be able to help you out. I have a very good friend that does taxidermy and I am sure he would give one hell of a nice discount for something like that.

Congrats, this site needs more people like you. smile.gif

jblabsnduck, thank you for the offer - Maybe next year he can shoot one of the real unusual birds - course I did tell him that he shot one of the hardest and rarest birds in Minnesota.

      Well, the highway 70 access won me over yesterday, only to break my heart today. I should have seen the warning signs at the start of the day. Get to the launch, get everything ready, about to put boat in the water...forgot the life jackets! 😫 I drove to the Walmart in Pine City and bought 2 life jackets! Finally got on the water. Was a nice boat ride upstream. Was hoping maybe to make it all the way up to the mouth of the Snake River. Probably made it halfway before it got too shallow. I most likely could have made it through had I had more ambition, but we needed to start fishing. Hooked into a few fish right away, but lost them. I’m pretty sure one was a small muskie. Ended up drifting all the way back to boat launch, and only caught 2 fish! And both were just a couple hundred yards up from the launch! Was a smallie and a little walleye. So yes, slow day indeed. Looks like a nice trail system at the access though. Might have to plan a hike there this summer.

      I am going up to camp in the middle of June.  Anybody have any suggestions about baits and depths etc. for Walleyes and Bass?

      May 31...Another beautiful afternoon on rainy lake with my wife...fishing east end this time...out for 4 hours 20+ walleyes and one 30” northern. Surface water temperature 65 degrees in 10-14 feet...jigs and chubs...Cajun batter on the fillets...

      Going to lake vermillion for the first time. June 13. Staying near Arrow Head Point, Isle of Pines. Only have a small boat with 15 HP so looking for some tips for where to go for big pike that is reasonably close given my boat. I do not mind a drive, but I know how conditions can get on big water.  I also plan to go to Trout Lake (reason for bringing the small boat) If anyone has tips on Trout Lake for Pike.  Thanks and #tightlines!

      Heading up to chain for a couple weeks.  Need some general info on the panfish bite.  They still shallow?  Got a couple grandkids coming up and any info sent on the panfish action will be appreciated.  Thanks   Ray guy

      Maybe see if you slide the winch back on the tongue an inch or two. The roller needs to contact the boat to keep it from bouncing. Should check to make sure the rear bunk rollers line up with the rear transom for stability.

      Every rig we've owned the roller is above the eye & snug to the boat when it's loaded.

      I looked at my rig yesterday . It is a matched boat/trailer package from Lund . My roller is above the eye but snug onto the bow , probably an inch maybe more, higher than yours.
