Has anyone seen an increase in activity in the Mankato area?

Activity slowed a little a week or so ago but I heard it is good again.

Hey, I hunted south of Madison Lake this past weekend and saw plenty of high flying divers and mallards, and also had a flock of about 40 woodies come right in to the deeks. Won't forget that sight for the rest of my life. Got one green winger also. It's the best action i've seen around there since the opener. I'm up at school right now so I havn't been able to hunt down there that much, but do you know how the Rotenone treatment of Swan is coming along? Did they get it done the 24th like they said they were gonna?

From what I have seen this week the bird numbers are getting better. Last friday wasn't the greatest but they are starting to move down. This weekend should be better than last.

last weekend was the slowest so far, well at least saturday. But I did some scouting around and found some smaller potholes that were holding a ton of ducks compared to the lakes. So I'd do a little scouting around and try to find that honey hole. I've been seeing a lot more ducks as the days have'd passed this week!!

I talked to the DNR yesterday, they should be done as scheduled with the treatment.

      you can get to horseshoe by boat but not far enough to get any fish yet.   This may change in the next few days.   I plan on ice fishing on shoe today.   Should be able to land a nice amount of slabs.   Don

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.

      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      Plastic PC is 3/4 x2 x3.5. Drilled shallow holes on the transom side for the adhesive to cling to. Pretty solid. Time will tell

      No shutoff needed. Take a photo of how you mounted your transducer Alex.
