drip bag spot

Recommended Posts

Dahitman44

I put out a bag in a abad spot, I think.. I couldn't find a spot I liked in a transition zone so i put it near a trail by some nice rubs and made a mock scrape. I that a terrible thing to do or do you think it will help?

Put it out on Sunday and I hope to hunt today or Thursday night.

Thanks for the input.

i had this problem when i first bought one months ago. you need to find a spot where the bucks travel and will visit every day or just about every day. i made mock scrapes and it really workd out well, i dont know how many different bucks came to my dripper with in the week. now i just bought another dripper and put one on a scrape that was made by one of the bucks in my area. i just put that one out a week and half ago and i had alot more action at that one. this buck dug a nice size hole in the ground right about the dripper. but you dont want to hunt around that dripper, you want to hunt about 60-70 yards away from the dripper but right on the trail the bucks are coming from. good luck with that!

Best thing to do with a mock scrape/dripper is to look at the natural scrapes in the area - typically the scrapes have an overhanging branch(actually always) and are on a fairly flat spot without a lot of rocks/roots. Let us know how it goes. Right NOW is the time to hunt those scrapes. early and late in the day.

      I agree with the others Tommy! I always enjoy your bits of wisdom and humor! Cliff

      They are all coming in from the main lake. Cliff

      We used to camp on hinsdale all the time. There is one spot on the south shore closer to the east end we stayed almost every time. It's got a big rock outcrop on a small point that slopes down to the water. The picnic table and fire ring are in the open up top. Wide open space and a good breeze will keep the bugs off you. Tent site is fairly hidden. That's the best spot we ever found. Only downside is boat parking. I remember tying up on a log off the the side so probably the same site mentioned earlier.  We stayed there a ton when I was younger and never had any bear encounters, but the bear boxes are there for a reason!

      I always wondered,  are the walleyes coming over the dam?   or are they swimming in from Pike?

      Why delete your post?  I actually enjoyed reading that story. Seeing stories like yours is half the reason I like checking out this site (I like to check out all the different lake boards on fishingminnesota).

      Hey, we need a little color and humor and Musky Tom does it best.

      Good info to me even. Cliff you can delete my story n junk. Most people don’t know me round here anymore n for sure the humor of life is of no interest. Under stand only want the facts mama. Just the facts. 😎 I endeavor to persevere.  Beef!

      The ice on the Pike River between the dam and the lake is opening up fast! Should be wide open in a couple of days at the present rate of melt! The DNR will be trapping walleyes soon!!!  The walleyes are already starting to move in! Pike Bay ice is  also starting to deteriorate quickly! Finally starting to look like we may get some open water for the fishing opener! Cliff

      These aren't campsites to bring your Ranger fiberglass or decked-out Lund into. They're better fitted for smaller 14-16 ft alum boats, something you can drag on shore. Though i'm sure you can figure out how to secure something bigger. Cliff is right, most have sandy/pebble shorelines to pull a smaller boat onto. Almost all of them are well-protected from the prevailing WSW wind. You're gonna get wakes rolling into shore from passing boats, though, as it's a pretty well traveled section of the lake.

      I camped at a couple sites a few years ago.  no docks, but most of the sites had a half way decent place to put the boat in.  one had a decent log to tie to.  another I threw a couple anchors out back and was able to tie off to a couple trees to keep the boat close yet off the rocks.
