Is it just us or does there seem to be a large increase in the mouse population this year?

Sorta off the subject. I went solo to Lake Sag (2 brother in laws cancelled on me last minute due to a work project) in Sept of 1995.

I had a good time and fishing was excellent, except that the darn mice chewed their way into my tent, and kept running accross my face at night. Geez, I still get the shivers thinking about the rodent droppings I probably ate while I slept....

I woke up once and tried to find the bugger, and saw dozens of them. Thanks for the reminder.....

ST:

It was raining too - seriously. I got up, lit the coleman lantern, and read a book under a tarp. The buggers kept running over my feet as I sat there reading. I broke camp in the AM.

From what I've heard is with the lack of rain this year most of the mouse and rat broods survived. In a normal year a lot of babys mice and rats are killed when their nest and burrows are flooded from the rain. It's a nasty cycle more babys survive and produce more babys. And mice and rats have multipule broods every year and reach sexual maturity very young.

Evntam, all I can say is yuck. ooo.gif

      Well most people use a fish head or two in the trap as bait.  Any type of raw  meat will probably work well. No need to purge them as they are coming out of clean water. Just boil the whole crawdad in salt water or better yet in a Cajun mix! The tails are about the only part worth messing with. Cliff

      I live on Little Cormorant Lake, I believe sometime next week that it will be open.  The lakes out there are changing fast!

      we got a lot snow down in the twin cities than up north and temps are a lot higher than it was in 2013.   I think we will have enough open water to fish the opener.   No one needs to cancel!  I HOPE any way

      what do you use for bait?  I heard you can't use left over fish guts.   do you have to soak them?  sorry not sure what that process is called.

      meerkat, Many people eat the rusties. Very tasty but like walleye wings it takes a lot for a meal! Cliff

      I just got an e-mail from Brent Flatten in the Tower Fisheries Office stating that they hope to get the Dock in by Monday if the river clears of ice. Will set the trap nets on Tuesday and the first net lift will be on Wednesday. They may even collect eggs Wednesday if there are enough ripe females. Very good news! Thanks for your update Brent!

      I would imagine the man made pepin connected to the sippi is open not the actual lake pepin?
