Definitely looks like fun!

Also looks nice and warm. What are the day temps like when you are fishing?

Thanks guys, it was a lot of fun. I was hoping to get into some of the bigger class of Lakers that are there but I'll take the 16"-20" class on my first time out. And yeah, the weather has been really nice here. Two weeks ago I was ice fishing in 61 degree weather, that was just plain wrong. I'd say the average for the last few weeks during the day is in the 40's and 50's and drops just below freezing most nights.

Thanks for sharing that cool vid! smile

I used to live in Victor, and wanted to hit some of those lakers in the mountain reservoirs but never got a chance.

Good to see you got in on some great action.

Great video...I've always wanted to get out and chase some lakers up in the BWCA. Seeing a few more videos like that might just get me up there. smile

    • Pumper don't forget to register your bird.
    • Had 3 long beards come out gobbl8ng and running but not to me.  Had them all fired up but they obviously had another destination in mind.
    • I didn’t know grackles fished either.  Interesting. 
    • Was checking back to see you with a bird pic @Borch
    • So this is not a new thing!  Interesting.  I keep finding more and more complex behavior in so many of these "dumb" animals!  So many of them are anything but dumb.
    • When I was a kid, we used to have a pond in our yard. We would keep fish and minnows in there. The grackles would clean in out! We had to resort to putting a cover over it.
    • Last Thursday on a visit to my sister in Rock Rapids IA, we made a circuit through the Island Park there.  At the low dam just past the former railroad bridge which is now a walking path we saw a group of grackles fishing at the edge of the white water where it ran against the rocks at the shore line.  There probably were a dozen or so all told moving back and forth and some on the rocks at the other shore line.  In something like half an hour or less we saw various of the birds bring out minnows and eat them on the shore to a total of at least 8.  They also contested for the better fishing spots and tried to horn in on other birds' catches;   they would fly out to quite a bit up on shore with a catch to eat it there. I never expected to see grackles fishing.  I never heard of that before, but then it wouldn't be the first time I didn't know about something relatively common.
    • I've seen deer there, too.  I go by there on my way to work about 3:30 am S S & M.
    • Now they're gobbling...  seem to be getting a little closer.
