Anybody hunting this full moon ?


Recommended Posts

If it hadn't been for work, I would have been out last night - moonrise was around 6:30. Pool league tonight, work late tomorrow night mad.gif By Thurs the moon's up so late I won't make it. Should be prime, darnit.

yeah we try to, been tough this year. every time that we get the moon, it warms up and we get wind and more wind. went a total of 5 or so nights. 1 good one. doesnt look like this one is going to be any better here. sat night was nice, little dark but had other plans. got out late, didnt see anything or hear anything. same for the other boys. you been having any luck this year. we have had terrible luck calling. pesonally called in 5 all year. to many no shows this year. totals this year are 5 coons 9 yotes and 10 fox. most in the last week or so.

How are you calling in the coons, that is one thing i really want to get into. If you ever want to go i got some land that holds some good coon populations.

hey shae. been getting anything in your neck of the woods. the coons are just standing in the wrong place at the wrong time. no big secret. and three my dog had in the tree. with the winter warm this year they have been out on occasions. bout this time of the year the males are out looking for the women to. got one in the moonlight with it close to 0. but if you want to try calling them in. i got the calls. maybe the full moon in march might be the ticket, or just when it warms up to 20's at night 35 or so during the day. we can try it one night and if it doesnt work, ill bring zoey. she is always up for coon hunt. also need to pick up my new 204. maybe next weekend we could hook up for a little coyote or coon hunting.

      You still have your trailer and place up there? Maybe you should do some summer rentals of it to help pay the taxes and up keep on it? 👍

      The water is starting to slowly go down. From what I can tell it looks like it’s down about 5-6 inches. The wind was terrible over the weekend though. I’m sure many properties suffered damages with Sundays winds. Things are finally starting to head in the right direction but it’s going to take a very long time for things to get back to even somewhat normal.

      Stopped at VC last week as well.  Didn't have pizza, but the sandwiches and appetizers we had were good.  The service was very good.  However, that's the first and only time we had been there.

      Any other info about VC?   Got kid and and fam coming up.  Been a couple years but really liked it.   Reviews on line still good.   Did Mark just hit on a bad night or has it gone down?   Being on west not a place we go often.

      Going up to visit family at Mille lacs 4th of July weekend. Given the current fishing restrictions and the fact that I don’t have a boat, does anyone know any good shore/kayak fishing lakes in the Mille lacs area?

      Spent yesterday afternoon wading the upper croix. Water actually seemed a little low. There was lots of floating grass, so my traditional approach of using a fire tiger jointed rapala was unusable. Tried a whopper plopper for a bit, which avoided floating grass better, but I just didn’t have confidence in using it. So since it seemed like the crayfish outnumbered the rocks, I decided to use a weightless Texas rigged plastic craw. Caught 3 smallies, and a pike.

      Here's the actual water level as of Saturday, 6-25. It has dropped some but still is 4 feet above the rule curve. This is updated daily; it's just too early in the day for Sunday's data to be posted. You can check it yourself here: http://www.lwcb.ca/waterflowdata.html

      @chaffmj, never mind.  I decided to take a cruise on up there today.  Had a couple popple tops in the driveway but nothing I couldn’t clear.  Nice to see the area again.

      Ludlows and Muskego both hit hard.  The Dayton place had a lot of big trees down, not sure of structural damage.  Some say a tornado skipped thru that area.  Looking at the destruction, I could believe it.  I feel bad for those impacted by this storm.   Below are a few snap shots of common sights around the area a day or two after the storm.

      Mike, was there a lot of damage in the Ely area?
