Deer hunting is over-rated when you have northerners in the area!

Well boys just thought I would let you know that there are more ducks than I have ever seen before in the Int'l Falls area!! My uncle said that he has not seen ducks like this since the early eighties!!! Saturday morning there were so many ringies and scaup in the air that someone could only stare at the sky. I also have seen quite a few pinnies and cans. Of course there are lots of red heads around, but the big surprise is the amount of mallards in the area. huge flocks on northerners are everywhere!!! It is too easy to pick out drakes now. My buddies uncle is also impressed with the amount of honkers around on lake of the woods, though most are just staying for a short time. It they stick around just a little longer, I will have a chance to hook up on some november goose hunting!!! With ample rice and warm temps they are still holding in the falls area, but with colder temps during this middle of this week I don't know...

Now the hard desicion...To go out to the shack right away friday, or to put the boat in again and do some hardcore late season waterfowling. I think that duck hunting sounds like a really, really good idea!!! grin.gif

Good Luck Hunting Everyone!!

Sweet! Keep up the great reports TL. I wanna know the SECOND those birds bug out of there, 'cause I'll be headed out here when they do! wink.gif If those birds fly basically straight south, we should cross paths. grin.gif

Hunting has been awesome this year, and it sounds like it's only going to get better! I would have never guessed a year ago that there would be this many birds around this year.

      Thanks Cliff for your Pike River deteriorating ice reports and pics . I. Really want to show my wife the hatchery when the action is really happening this year , I would assume you will be right on that when this happens , is there any way that you can give a shout out on here as to just when this scenario is happening up there . With the warmer temps being quite steady now , I would think the run will be rather strong this year when things get going ..

      I got the 4 smaller ones the other day. They are a little over 2" long and paid only $6.64 total to my door.  The quality seem pretty good, we shall see once I put them to some use!

      Thanks Leech! Ya you need a life jacket in a kayak. I have mine behind my seat, but Yes I should be wearing it.

      Nice video! Life jackets not needed in Yak's?  Just asking.

      Cigar guy, you got a good deal. They look like size 7 which is what I use the most for summer walleyes. Fleet Farm had all Rapalas 25% off last week so I stocked up.  I've used them a lot in the last 2-3 years.  If you fish them on rocks... you will lose some.  I try not to use them over the real bad snaggy stuff but sometimes I still do and usually end up losing one.  It takes a little practice, but they work well when you get it down.

      Funny, I first heard of this on LOTW also about 8-10 years ago.  They're tasty but honestly I often forget about doing it.

      Finally warm weather has arrived in Minnesota and I decided to hit the river for the first trip of the year in the Kayak. Felt good to be on open water after a very long winter. Even managed a few rough fish to get warmed up for the year!  Video: https://youtu.be/0gYDiOVH3As

      Spending some time in the turkey blind as it’s on solid ground. Had some jakes behind me but they don’t want to play. It’s okay as the have a free pass for now. In a couple weeks they will not have a free pass. If they would have come out I would have taken some photos. Lots for noise as everything is excited by the warm weather.
