How is everyone doing on shooting divers? Last weekend we got into some redheads, ringbills, bluebills, and canvasbacks pretty good.

hunted Mille Lacs area on Saturday and encountered solid numbers of ringers and saw some bluebills...also a flock of cans as well as 2 loner cans which we bagged! First cans ever for us so we were excited to shoot the king of ducks. High hopes for this weekend...we will be north of Willmar.

SA,

Good to hear you got into those cans. You were just saying last week how you really wanted to get one.

yeah Borch thanks, it was pretty exciting...knew it would happen sooner or later but I have been waiting to have one in the dekes since 2001 which was the last time I had a chance. Guess we usually just hunt areas that lack canvasbacks. Have you hunted the chain lately? What have you been seeing for birds?

We seen a pretty good push of divers here in northern Wi. Thursday - Sat. Thursday and friday there were mostly redheads around and then on Sat. a bunch of buffleheads, ringers, bills and a few cans were in the area. Then on Sunday everything went quite. Did see two goldeneyes. Its awesome, your shooting blue wing teal one day and butterballs the next.

I've been hunting around Rockville. Last weekend we saw mallards, woodducks, widgeon, GW teal, bluebills, ringnecks, redheads, buffleheads, snow geese and lots of canadians.

Lots of divers around right now.

John, I will be out thursday - Sunday mornings. Let me know if you want to try it. I haven't been out the last three days but reports are good with teal, shovelers and mallards. With this rain and snow mix moving in this weekend I have high hopes for a good weekend.

      Time to get the yak ready. Might need to paddle a couple spots on the sippi soon.

      Eyeguy and I made it out one last time yesterday. Access points are getting pretty bad in our area. Was finding roughly 2ft of  very chunky ice in the places we drilled holes. With the warm weather and bright sunahine we had, I'm guessing we lost a few inches through the day Fishing wasn't exactly fast and furious, we did get our fish... but really had to work for the quality.  The area we ended up finding our fish was a shallow 6-10ft dark bottom flat, close to where they will move come ice out.   It soon became apparent the fish we were targeting were almost swiming with their back right against the bottom of the ice, infact my two best crappies hit while my bait was only inches below my hole.  Baits we found better success with were the Northland slugbug and The Impulse Mayflies in bright colors. Jig size didn't seem to matter much due to the depth we were fishing. As I am typing this, my thoughts are already turning toward warmer days spent chasing smallies on the river. The boat and yak are soon to be ready, rods will be strung and so on. It was one heck of a long winter.... fished with some real good people from this site I had more good days than bad, got some monster fish locally... for these things I'm truly blesaed.... like I said,It's been a long winter....I'm glad it's over Pic is of my last big ice crappie for the season

      I will certainly keep you informed about the progress of the hatchery. I expect to see the nets and traps go in within the next two to three days. The run should be very strong as the fish are already moving into Pike Bay strongly. Cliff

      Thanks Cliff for your Pike River deteriorating ice reports and pics . I. Really want to show my wife the hatchery when the action is really happening this year , I would assume you will be right on that when this happens , is there any way that you can give a shout out on here as to just when this scenario is happening up there . With the warmer temps being quite steady now , I would think the run will be rather strong this year when things get going ..

      I got the 4 smaller ones the other day. They are a little over 2" long and paid only $6.64 total to my door.  The quality seem pretty good, we shall see once I put them to some use!

      Thanks Leech! Ya you need a life jacket in a kayak. I have mine behind my seat, but Yes I should be wearing it.
