Flooded Corn

6 posts in this topic

I always thought hunting flooded corn was considered bating waterfowl? Just wondering if anyone can clear this up for me. Thanks in advance for the responses.

It's fine. Water can come to the corn, but you can't bring corn to the water.

We hunted in ND this weekend and 75% of the ducks we shot were in flooded unharvested corn fields. It is perfectly legal.

I have a question similar to this topic. I was reading in Field & Stream probably a year or so ago and one quick tip they gave was to lay a light colored (white or clear) tarp in a picked field and throw in some field and water decs. Apparently this setup is suppose to look like standing water in the field. Has anyone actually tried this? It seems a little shaky to me.

Yes some people have done that to make it look like sheet water and have shot ducks over it...I have not tried it but it would be interesting to see how it turns out.

Lots of threads on using tarps late season...try the search function.

Flooded cornfield, if it's picked, is just a natural thing if you get enough rain...a normal agricultural practice

    • Just said he's been down a long time.....hours. Guess it's a dead rescue. Every friggin' year...it ought to be MANDATORY that you carry and use a spud when venturing out on the ice...or wear one of the ice fishing suit PFD's. 
    • academic research.  Maybe some day, but for now I would say walleye in stores and restaurants comes from netting in Canada.   Or is zander from Europe... 
    • Have a friend that does this....   http://aquaculturenorthamerica.com/Finfish/fresh-water-fish/profitable-commercial-production-for-walleye-and-saugeye/    
    • There's a live rescue going on in Wis Como Lake I think it was right now for a guy that went through but it doesn't look good as they just sent the divers down.   WISN 12 NEWS
    • Ho Ho....   or       Use the fake news thing as a way to censor speech not acceptable to the left.  Yah sure. 
    • Pen raised walleye?   Sounds like fake news.   Lots of Canadian walleye but I think it is netted from wild in places like Lake Winnipeg or Red Lake and so on.   Must be Putin trying to discredit the Canadian Walleye providers. 
    • Quick question. On the striker models they have a setting called the A-scope. It basically widens the right hand part of the screen where it starts so that it works kinda like a showdown at the beginning of the graph which I like on the ice.  Can you check and see if that unit has that?  
    • 5 x 5 will be nor problem for one guy and gear.  I speared out of a two man flip over otter sled for several years and had not problem.  Use to spear out of a 4 x 6 permanent and that is less sq foot than the 5 x 5 hub.  It is nice to have a large hole and yes it lets in more light in those low light conditions but I always used a 3 x 2 spear hole and never had any issues.  It worked, could it be better?  Of course but you just have to figure out what is right for you.  Get a 5 x 5 foot piece of cardboard draw out your hole on it, set up your chair and put all your gear on it and then sit down.  This is probably the closest way to experiencing it prior to doing so...... Good Luck 
    • I've seen walleye at grocery stores in the cities for a buck or two more than king crab.   Yeesh.
