I'd never been to Rochester before until my girlfriend started PT school there this fall. This morning I was driving home north on 52 and all I can say is WOW, there were geese everywhere. They were on both sides of the highway as far back in the corn fields as I could see and the sky was full of them too! I kept waiting to see some dropping out of the sky but didn't see or hear anyone shooting. Why is that?? To sum it up guess I'm just jealous of the number of geese you have in this area. Good luck to all hunting them.

Tippman,

I moved up to Oronoco and was sick of seeing them flying over so I finally got off my butt and asked permission to hunt the field behind my house. Guy was perfectly fine with it. Since it is by some houses, I introduced myself to the closest ones and explained what I would be doing and that the 500 foot minumum distance would be followed.

Here are the results

Gotta eat some since I got one Wed night also and now I have my posession limit in the freezer. Maybe give some to my buddy to smoke.

So many geese passed/missed also. First time out in 9 years but the convenience of hunting right behind my house was just too much to pass up.

You like my real hardwoods camo for hunting in the corn field? I should probably go get some different stuff.

Hey Tippman...I know that this is a bit off topic, but I was wondering if you could tell me more about your girlfriends PT school (at the clinic I assume). I plan on going back to school shortly and PT is what I was leaning towards. Please send me an email to chaddjurg@hotmail.com

Thanks,

Chad

      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.
