  1. I normally hunt water that i can wade in so i can put my decoys out. but i want to get out a little farther but the water is to deep. i hunt mallards and its really hard to put my decoys in the formation i want from the boat. is there a easier way like having 6-8 decoys connected to one large string. any info will help.
  2. i have a quick question. do you guys repaint your decoys every year or two or do the little paint chips and scratches not bother the geese. I have the greenhead brand and the flocked heads seam to get little scratches and dings.
  3. : SA/wdw Sartell Angler i know where this exactly is my grandma lives like a mile away from here and they sit in this slough every year. as for snowgoose hunting. I just moved away from SD a year and a half ago so i know all the farmers and spots are. i personally like to decoy them in but it's always fun too pass shoot. while decoying i like to use 6 shot steel because they often get close and 4 and 2 ruin them. and you can get 2 or even 3 birds in one shot often. i also like to go to a slough or lake that there sitting at and bring 2 doz canadian honks. scare them up throw them out reel quick and have a ball. you can often shoot at that same flock of 5,000 birds or so for an hour. ( might want to laern to load fast ) sometimes you'll get such a stupid flock that they'll fly right in land and then you can stand up and shoot and they'll often not fly. but it's fun every year weather it's fall or spring ang bring tons of shells maybe see you driven around i'll be out there the whole first week of april. good luck huntin.
  4. i have a question on my aqua-vu. every time i want to turn mine on you have to turn it on and then off like 5-6 times till it turns on. do your guys aqua-vus do that also.
  5. i have an old schmidt can from the late 60's early 70's got it from the bottom of the drink.
  6. i have a ? do they help with tip-up fishing for northerns.
  7. don't know if its baitfish prolly bullhead. the lake is covered with those. as for walleyes it is a great lake. my uncle has a cabin on it and in the summer i'll fish it prolly 5-6 times. ( don't know about the winter ) but in the summer i mostly troll bottom bouncers and spinners with crawlers. catch alot of bullheads but when a walleye hits it there big. my biggest in there is a 31 in. 10 pounder. in the spring i like to pitch jigheads and crankbaits. can't tell you where i nail these fish ( family secret )
  8. not yet the season for walleye,bass,northern, and muskies ends the 25th of Feb. correct me if im wrong
  9. I was thinking about taking my son and daughter on our first ice fishing trip and had a few questions I would like help with. First off would like to rent a sleeper and stay on the lake. Would you go to Upper Red Lake or Milacs for a trip? Or is there some place better? Which would be a better option to catch a few fish. Also what resorts or rental places would you recommend to use and what time of the winter would be best to go. Any input would be helpful. Thanks.
  10. just because the lake is shallow doesnt mean it doesnt have big fish in it. i moved here from South Dakota 2 years ago and all the lakes there are 20 or even shallower than 15 feet deep and it seems like they all have way more monster walleyes than the big deep lakes. same thing goes with the perch there theres lots of sloughs there that are no bigger than 60/70 acres and hold 13/15 inchers and most are only 6/7 feet deep. one of my favorite lakes there was pelican lake near watertown it was only 6 feet deep max and considerable sized lake every time you pulled up a walleye it be at least 4 to 5 pounds and every year theres a couple 10 pounders pulled out of there. also the last time the lake was stocked was in '97.
  11. I too was on O'dowd on sunday around 13"-14" inches. saw to vehicles goin proubly 30-35 mph and the one was right behind the other. pretty stupid if you ask me. they stopped a little more than 100 yards away from me and when they got out they were teenagers.
  12. i use one of those insulated bait buckets by frabill. works good just put it in a 5 gallon bucket and in the back of the pick-up it goes. splashes minimal (through the areater hole in the lid) but thats why sits in a 5 gal. bucket. also in the summer works great.
  13. for my h2o c i just use a camera case and mine has two extra pockets on it. i use those for batteries, gps chips,ext. works great. does anybody know if they make a plastic case or hard case that you can put on your h2o incase you drop it and scratch the screen.
