Who made it out today 10/18?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys I haven't posted for a while I have been really busy with work, school and of course waterfowling. All I have have to say is that this year has been much better for me than the last few. We did really well this past weekend filling our limit of geese both mornings and 1 duck short of a limit on saturday, and 2 ducks short on sunday. We saw a ton cans bills and mallards. I was just wondering if anyone made it out today. I plan on hunting friday and I'm looking to see if any more birds moved in.

I was out this morning (live 35 miles north of 'Kato) but it was pretty bleak. Saw a few flocks of divers very early and that was it. One drake redhead and one drake widgeon. I think the weather played a little bit of a role in birds moving around today. Plus, I think we're at the "in-between" stage where the locals are gone, some birds from up north have moved through, but most of the northern ducks are still hanging up north. Looked at the DNR migration report (dated 10/11) where it said birds are just starting to funnel into the northern waters of the state. It's a week later now, and I'll be checking to see if the migration report is updated tomorrow. Won't be too long now before we see another influx of birds though.

I was out today and got 2 wooducks and a mallard. The elements were fun it made it seem like duck huntng. Number of ducks seen was fair. Supriseingly I saw quite a few woodducks. I'm banking on this weekend to be good should be some new arrivals. Hopeing on getting in on a good diver shoot within the next few weks only time will tell.

I got out this morning and after getting unlost in the wildlife area, long story. Anyway I never got setup until about 0730 and I still ended up shooting 1 redhead, 1 mallard and 2 gadwals.

3 of us set up in a cornfield just out of town and managed 2 mallards and 3 geese...should have limited but we were set up poorly with the wind (expected it to switch south, stayed west while we were there)...by the time we re-arranged dekes the birds had quit flying. Still nice making it out there though.

What a difference a week makes...did not see half the birds today that I did last week in Sibley County. A cold barrel is no fun all morning.

      "Kelly looks like you need an extension for your dock."   But I don't think I have to worry about any boats hitting it.    It should be an interesting Opener.

      A truck broke through Birch Lake the other day in like 20fow, an ATV broke through Prairie Lake and a man lost his life. The ice is deteriorating RAPIDLY. There will be some ice chunks, but I firmly believe there will be more open water than ice by May 12.  Temps up here are forecasted near 70 for a few days next week.

      Looking at the beach cam there is a lot of ice on shore. Don't know how far that goes into the water though.  Last week in April- first week in May is when I come down to seine.

      Well you learn something new every day! I always thought it was mad made. Makes sense now why it formed now.

      Drove through last week and noticed the ditches didn't have much water compared to other years. Kelly looks like you need an extension for your dock.

      I hung it up last Saturday. Could have gone on Sunday but choose to spend time with my Grandson instead. Need to meet up with the guys over in central Mn. one of these days.

      I don't know if Lucas has a marine gear oil.   AMSOIL Synthetic Marine Gear Lube is what I pick. I like Mobil 1in my cars and trucks but again I think your going to want to go with an oil formulated for marine use.   The NMMA FC-W rating.   Four Stroke Cycle Water Cooled.

      Just for fiun I went to wunderground.com and looked at the weekly averages for 2014, 2016, and 2018 starting the beginning of march.  2014--May 13 ice out 5  25 20 14 29 38 29 39 39 44 44 56 2016-April 25 17 38 34 30 34 25 43 47 41 52 46 49 60 2018-??? 21 24 24 26 17 26 33.... Looks like we are behind 2014 with respect to getting average temp above 32 if that is significant, although the weeks don't line up exactly and we are way behind 2016 .

Fishing with Eyeguy always keeps you on your toes and it’s always fun. Rick G I learned a lot by watching you work your magic on the gills. See you all soon. Thank you everyone for letting me hangout andfish with you all.

      Just talked to my neighbor up at the lake and he said one of SunkedAgain's neighbors in Black Bay couldn't get to his place going across the Partridge River-he said he almost broke thru the ice!!  I'm down a ways toward Wakemup from the narrow part going into the bay, but we had over 30" last wknd.  Looking good for some open water to fish down my way by the opener!
