  1. I had some free time sat. night to figure that out,I'll have to pass on giving you a hand on that homework stuff.I'm gettin ready to make a run out to sd and hunt some snows myself.
  2. That is alot of bird.Are you guys guides? If not just watch what you are saying,unless you ate 5 ducks every other day you may have been in some sort of violation, a 6 bird limit a day with no more than 5 being mallards and a possession limit being twice daily so 10 mallards how many in your group 60. 60x10=600. 3 geese daily, possession twice daily so 6, how many hunted geese in your group 50,50x6=300.avg mallard drake 2-4# hen 1.5-3.5# so 3#drakesx300=900# 2.25#henx300=675 so thats 1575# of mallard. avg goose lets say is 8# 8x300=2400# for a combined total weight of 3975# that alot of bird, so if you would be willng to share a recipe for sausage or jerky that would be great,3975# gives you alot of practice making sausage or jerky.I think you should clarify if your guiding and if thats the total birds for your clients.
  3. Jpz,Mykal is right,you can catch them all day long.Morning or evening has been no different than midday.The key has been finding the right presentation that they will hit.
  4. Yesterday was a good day cat fishing.There was plenty of cats caught and plenty to be caught.St.Croix Boy,Dennis,and myself all had to take a guess at the depth we were fishing,our locators had too many fish showing to correctly give the depth.I believe it was 32'though.Rick,Tom,Matt,and Dennis it nice meeting you all,let us know if you want to do this again.Tom and Matt enjoy your cats for supper tonight.

  6. Yep those are cats, our group yesterday iced over 100 cats.It was a fun day catching fish.
  7. Thanks for the info I'll try charging it for a long time once
  8. I have a new FL18 and when I charge the battery the charger gets real hot. I charged it for four hours the other night and checked the battery with my buddies tester and it showed the battery was half charged,so I put his charger on it for the rest of the night,he has the charger that a light comes on when completly charged and it never came on and the battery was still half charged. Is the battery shot or should I try charging it all day?
  9. bigdog is correct.For us in the St.Cloud area the regular season runs to the 5th and the late season starts the 6th through the 15th.
  10. This morning I was hunting by the qaurry near Rockville. I got two geese and two greenies. There was alot of shooting this morning towards Cold Spring. The mallards and geese were flying in good numbers this morning, too bad the duck season ends today.The rest of the goose season hopefully will be good.
  11. Sartell Angler, I went to the Sauk today. I did not see many ducks,but the geese were plentiful,I managed to get one. The ducks that I did see were closer towards St.Cloud rather than the area I hunted today.I think I'm going to set up for some goose action in the morning.
  12. I hunt the sauk river by Rockville too,last weekend there were a bunch of birds sittng on the river from Rockville to St.Cloud.I was out last night a bagged 2 big greenies.There is a canoe access on #139 north of Rockville,alot of guys drop in there and float the river to co.rd.121 by St.Joe or to miller landing by St.Cloud#138.Canoe or jonboat would be your better option,lots of rocks and low water levels.I think the co.rd.121 bridge to Miller landing is the better float.
  13. I am personally a fan of the boat,I would hate to tip a canoe in the cold water. I've gotten real wet a few times when I started and its not fun.I do have 6 magnums that a through out, but it seems everyone has there own way to put out a decoy spread my way might not look right to you and your spread might not look right for me.I hunt the Collegeville,Mn area so I through out a few Woodduck decoys in my spread too.
  14. I too would go with the weighted Flambaeu decoys, I have them and they work awesome.A real good pair of waders is a must, camo is good and insulated is great for cold late season water.The type of call you want is all up to what you feel comfortable with. I have gone through alot and I am now comfortable with the ones I have(duck commander calls).I have different camo for the different locations I hunt(fields,catails,and along trees of the river).You dont have to have a robo-duck,but any movement in your decoy spread to make it more realistic will help. Last but not least is if you can get a dog, get one.I try not to go hunting without my lab,hes probably with 98% of the time.A dog will find birds in 4-6'catails while you might walk right by them.Good luck and have fun, I cant wait til next season.I forgot but glassing water and fields may help increase your numbers of ducks and geese during the season.

  15. I'm thinking GM looking at the terrain, its the only truck with the power to pull something that big in that area. Any truck will work, but the GM will rise above the rest. [This message has been edited by Wigeon (edited 03-16-2003).]
  16. Male walleyes might move in to spawning areas when the water temp is below freezing or just above, females might not move in til weeks later. The water temp that they spawn at depends on the latitude from the articles and books I've read. The walleyes in the northern region may spawn in water 15 degrees lower than walleyes in the southern region.I've also read that if the water warms slowly they spawn at temps lower than normal, and if the water temp rises faster than normal, they spawn at temps higher than normal and spawning may last only days not weeks.

  17. I was fishing with a guy who caught a 1# 12oz and a 1# 14oz perch in less than a hour. The bigger one he got after coming back from shore and his bobber was down.Lucky,Lucky,Lucky!!
  18. I should have clarified the lake I was fishing is a private lake.Common fishing strategies you could have thrown out the window. This lake has since froze out, but is making a comback. This season chasing gills I have caught 90% of my crappies in 15'of water or less. 6 1/2' being the shallowest,with weedlines not very far away.
  19. chiro I believe it was 60-70 a night. We were there during the week, its cheaper during the week than weekend. Four of us and we stayed for 4 nights, each of us paid for one night.
  20. Northlands forage minnow and I like jigging a small sweedish pimple.
  21. For the last 3 years I've been staying at the AmericanInn. Clean,quiet, almost every parking stall has outlet for charging the boat. Fish cleaning shed is very nice. Sittng in the hottub after fishing all day is also very nice

    I picked up a used 14'er with a 15hp motor. Do I have to have a throwable float, or is that for boats over 16'.
  23. Shoof, Fishing with a camera is great. You can check so many things fairly quick(bottom, weedlines, fish,etc.)If you go with a Aqua-vu buy the downward looking accessory. The tri-pod accessory is nice to use too.
  24. I'd give the shallower water a try 7-12' I have been on lakes that kick out crappies in this depth at this time of year ice fishing. Weedline is nearby or for that matter catching them in the weeds happens.One lake I fished before it froze out I fished in 4' and got'em.
  25. Scott, thanks for the information. It was the smallest forage minnow we were using.
