Hope that it gets here soon. Saturday after I got done watching the mostly empty skies I drove around to ALL the lakes, ponds and sloughs that I know of. There was 1 (one) duck and it was on a pond that is not huntable! No ducks or geese at all in any of the picked corn fields! Only one shot oppurtunity in the last 4 times that I have been out and I blew that! Kick myself in the arse I tell ya! Good luck and N Joy the Hunt././Jimbo

its been really rough around here as well, i might have to tread in some unfamiliar water to get some good action and away from the crowds. . . .and by northern flight, what species seem to be predominant?

Went out this morning before work and the slough that i hunt that is about 8 feet deep in the middle and about 30 acres + large was nearly froze over. Drove the boat around a little and broke up some ice.

We got our limit of 12 Ringnecks but the ducks were not even close to the numbers we had seen and i think the froze pond will kick them south. Hope the weather opens up the pond for the northern Flight.

I'd think it will. Temps are forecasted for the mid 40's to mid 50's in southcentral MN.

Me personally, I'm waiting for that 2-day (or more) time period where we get a big northwest wind and the highs are between 25 and 35 degrees with lows around 20 or the upper teens. Those days make for some awesome hunting!

Here in eastern Otter Tail county things are hot but spotty. One day there's ducks all over and the next you don't see a thing. But, it's been really good overall.

Fishingmike,

what species is predominant? Up on Rainy there were two thousand or so ringies on sunday, several hundred mallards, Blackducks, Goldeneyes, Buffleheads, and of course what everyone always likes to see. Redheads, a few cans, and several hundred Scaup. I have not seen ducks like this in the the years that I have been duck hunting. I am calling a buddy up there tomorrow to see if they are still around, or if the 24 degree weather froze them out. If they are still there by some miracle, you can bet that I will be there this weekend.

Take Care all and Good Luck hunting!!!!

      Thanks Cliff for the update, and thanks Brett for the info too!

      You can fish a little meat out of the ones with really big claws. Tails are easy once you get the hang of it. Meat pops right out then just pull the intestine(?) and you're good to go.  I'd rather people use fish guts as crawfish bait rather than throwing them in the woods for my dog to find

      You can also get the ArcGIS app to access the county files on your mobile or download the .kmz files on the county site to use in Google Earth. Either way very useful.

      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
    • meerkat
      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.
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      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?
