Take a look at this question...

12 posts in this topic

Well my dad and I were talking on the way home from my cabin and we were talking about ducks and how they migrate. And than the question came up.... Did ducks originally migrate south because the north was too cold Or did they migrate north because it was too hot? What are your guy's opinions..?

But did they migrate up here in the summer to cool off and find water and food? and then go back down south? Or migrate south and then north?

They come up here to mate in what used to be called the "duck factory" not sure what they call it now, but ain't no factory anymore thats for sure. (the ducks unemployment rate makes the US rate look silly)

They migrate South for food and water.

Of course, pre human there wasn't any corn fields. So what came first the duck or the duck egg? Eggs dont migrate...as least I dont think they do. Now that I think about it the last two weeks I did come home with two goose eggs. Hmmmmm. I think they fly to canada in the summer for the beer and south in the winter for the bikinis. Take off hoser. Good day.

Ducks go south to find open water. Ducks go north to find open water - as in the south many potholes are dried up.

It becomes instinctive after 1000 years

More shallow water seasonal nesting ponds up north in the spring with food to support young, and then south to find food and open water in the winter.

    • Way to get him out MM!  I'm sure he appreciates it.
    • I believe some units come with maps of some lakes but probably wont have any real detail as far as contour lines.  I think most will have a map of the US but when you zoom in you wont get much for detail on lakes and If they do contours will probably be 5-7ft apart.  If you want to put data on a card you will need a zero line card for mapping. About $150 i think.  8 hours should give you quite a bit of mapping.  Best would be to buy from a retailer so someone with knowledge of the product can show you how to run it.  You might be able to take some snap shots of sonar and put on a blank card but don't think you can map with it. I would get a Lakemaster card for the area(s) you want to fish.  Worth every penny.
    • Turkey season is over for my nephew!! It was a long season with many hours spent in the blind. He seen more turkeys then ever before and had a toms close enough to grab. It is going to be nice to sleep in. Until fall turkeys!
    • Heading up to Devils in a couple weeks and again later on.  Doesn't look like a lot of activity on here.  Tryng to get an idea whats happening before I go.
    • I have been out the last two days locally and haven't set the world on fire. Caught a few each day, but fish have been scattered. Lake is loaded with curly leaf mats this year, so that hasn't helped things. Once that starts dying and weather warms up, things should pick up.
    • Nada for me today. Had some hens come in to give my decoy some company today, but no toms. Sorry I wasn't able to help out on the scoresheet this year. As always, learned some stuff that will make me better next year.
    • We caught plenty of bass this weekend.  However most were small 12-13".  Deep fish were less than eager to bite.  Still seen a couple guarding nests yet. Small plastics fished slowly was by far the best tactic. Only found a couple decent fish, biggest being 19.25".
    • We called at about 4 had them as close behind the blind but never came around for the nephew 
    • What great fun on a 4-weight fly rod!!  Those are dandy panfish.
