good hunting lakes/streams

9 posts in this topic

I'm back in business finally got bearings for my trailer, found out that they were from a model t ford. Took me forever to find a place to help me out. anyway trying to get out scouting this weekend and next. I hunt pelican lake in monticello area and would like to have a couple of lakes to escape the crowds on it. any advice would be greatly appreciated. I would love to try some rivers or streams that are accesable by boat and trailer.

Your going to be hard pressed to find guys who will share good hunting spots without crowds.

I would just put lots of miles on the car and use google earth.

I have also heard the crow river can be good for floating.

Why leave Pelican? most hunters stay close to the access, go out there now and scout around, There are some hidden gems around that lake that see no pressure what so ever, I know it's hard to believe

If someone told you about a spot to try in that area to escape the crowds the crowds would come. Go drive around and scout. There are many area's out there to hunt, do some legwork.

I have never heard that. But before you hunt anywhere, you should always check regs.

They mean the Crow River. It would be tough to float, the water is very low, you'd be better off walking it.

thanks for the advice guys, you think maybe a a small row boat would be better then. I could get one from up north that way have something for the gear. One more thing not looking for specific spots but st.michael maybe put in or more out of the city? Don't know of any landings...Thanks

    • Thanks for bringing that to my attention.  I am now going to add this quick connector to the coax side and plug that into the wall plate for quick on and off.
    • I have had the Ion for two season's.  It works as good if not better than any auger I have previously owned.  The battery did not show any signs of degradation in it's second season,  I will soon see what the battery does in season three.    I use it in a 9 hole wheel house, opening 7 of the holes everytime I have gone fishing.  Additionally, I go outside the house and always pop open a half dozen extra holes.  I have never had to worry about the charge when setting up for each trip. The battery (older version) does all of those holes including reversing the auger on each hole to remove as much slush as possible.  It usually runs longer in reverse than it does drilling the hole.    I often intentionally drill old holes when I am outside to see if I can experience any lose in power or battery life and haven't had any complaints yet.   20 plus inches of ice hasn't change any of these results.   Since the new battery also works in the older version of the auger I was thinking about buying the newer battery but after some thinking about it there isn't any reason to spend the $200 for a backup that I don't currently need (knock on wood).
    • I was gonna go catfishing but then I remembered I had all my teeth 
    • Why do you guys take pictures with the bait?
       

       
    • No beer in a boat has to be the 2nd stupidest law in the history of the world next to when Wisconsin had the no trolling law   I believe he was talking more about the coverage than the care.
    • The new X battery does work with the previous model for sure.  It gives you the same +60% efficiency with either unit.
    • If you plan on reopening any holes, go with the Ion.  The Lazer blades don't reopen holes  
    • I am planing on getting an electric auger and I was trying to decide between the new ION X or strikemaster lithium lazer.  I know no one has experience with the new Ion but wondering how the older models have been holding up (does the batteries still hold a good charge) and kinda the same think with the strikemaster.  I have seen the electra lazer and not to impressed with it that is why I am wondering if the lithium is any better.  Hope you guys can help    Thanks Bobby
    • If I am thinking of this right you will plug that directly into your camera and have a coax cable running to the wall plate then? If that is the case the only thing I can think of is it will be a pain to plug and unplug the wire when you want to use it. If you are keeping it hooked up all the time then I don't see a problem.
