First signs of winter!

Recommended Posts

The first snow flakes of the season were seen today and with temps only reaching the mid 30s it sure is starting to feel like winter already. Its probably too soon to get the auger out but it wont be long now. I looked back at reports from last year and some of the smaller lakes connected to Devils Lake had fishable ice by mid November. If you have any questions about Devils Lake fishing send me an e-mail and hope for early ice!

It is coming soon. Last year our opening deer season in MN was -22 on opening morning. Brrrrr. I was back at the house eating chili by about 9:00 a.m. Forget that deer stuff. When it is that cold I will buy beef!!!

Hello Mr. Dosch. Any ducks moving in with that cold weather? My dad and brother are planning on coming out next weekend for a duck hunt. Just wondering if they've moved down yet? Thanks a lot for any help.

Most of the local birds have been pushed out by hunting pressure but birds from up North have been moving in daily. Not very far across the border they got 12 inches of snow on Monday so it wont take long for the birds to start showing up. Locals around town have been hunting around Lake Alice and up North by Rock Lake and they say there are more and more birds everyday. Hopefully we can get a couple of nice weeks so the birds stay awhile. Sounds like rain the next two days, that will make feild hunting a little sloppy. I'll keep you posted on numbers of birds moving into the area.

    • Speaking of lures I remembered something... Recently I have been trying to understand how to fish at night, was never really much of a fan before. Don’t overload yourself with tackle when fishing at night. Use a smaller tackle box and make use of two or three separate, small containers for all the necessary items like hooks, weights, small bait etc. Night-fishing success means not using bright lights and being very quiet. I feel in love with my new glow in the dark fishing lure, it is so underrated, there are quite a lot of these glow in the dark lures at places like Amazon and such. According to veteran fly-fishermen trout that are all but impossible to catch during the day will be more likely to hit at night. Why? Because these fish are nocturnal feeders. They venture out from under the logs and out of the deeper holes to feed in the shallows. Of course, when you’re seeking trout or other shallow feeders at night you’ll have to take extra precautions to stay safe. So far I've been doing good with my night fishing adventures.
    • My "BROWNING STRIKE FORCE SUB MICRO" was a dream. It really stands out for its exceptional daylight clarity and amazing battery life. The images this game camera can capture put most 12MP cameras to shame. It also uses power very efficiently, even with heavy use of video – especially if you install a set of lithium batteries.  You can expect several months’ use out of them which is even more impressive when you consider that it runs on six AAs, instead of the more common eight.
    • They only have 2 options in life: 1 - get hunted. 2 - get ran over.
    • Crazy thing just happened to me while fishing off my dock... Was throwing a topwater, not paying attention, and SPLASH, I set the hook and nothing there. As I was reeling in to try that spot again, I heard something in the big pine next to the dock, but didn't think anything of it. Recasted and heard something again, turned my headlight on in time to see an owl heading to and then kinda hovering over my lure...  I thought that was weird... A couple casts later I hooked a small bass.... Then I lift it out of the water and as I'm reaching for it, the crazy owl swoops down and about hit me as it tried to nab my bass!!! Holy $#!+ I said out loud and decided to go up the hill before I got attacked. But not until I got pics and videos of the brave bird.  Last summer I had a very similar up close encounter with a great blue heron and a crappie, right at dusk with a heavy fog coming in... Not sure which one surprised me more!!
    • you using millet?  if so get rid of it. sparrows love it
    • All a byproduct of the MDDI. 
    • Seasoned up burgers and smoked cheese for a topping.
    • There appears to be enough venison laying on the roads, gonna add a bit of that too!!
    • I've been informed that I'll be making this again this weekend up at the camper for some friends that will be joining us.
