Got on the lake today

Recommended Posts

Good 4 inches where I was spearing. Did measure a spot that was 3. Could only go for an hour, but it was fun to get out again, it's the earliest ive ever been out, are the lakes normally a little cloudier early on? Because last year this lake was pretty clear.

It may have to due with the high winds that occurred right before and or during ice up. I know many of the lakes I spear are wide open yet by Brainerd and spearing may be poor for a while until the sediments settles out but only time will tell. Congrats on the first outing!

I'm gonna try and stay off of the lakes till after muzzleloader season. Hopefully I can get my tag filled and get on the lakes soon.

I got out this afternoon for about an hour. I tried the river behind our house. I had one come in about 10 minutes after getting set up, then another about a half hour later. Both were pretty small. The second one hung around for a quite a while and played with the decoys. He hit three different decoys. Hit one and leave, change, hit the new one and leave, change, come in and hit that one. At one point I had him just inches from the surface to where I could almost reach down and touch his back. Its little things like that why I like spearing so much.

    • It seems to be working😉
    • I've heard good things about the Browning's. 
    • Just curious- what about your old now is making you switch?   I've shot both and have no real concerns with either. Elite makes a nice bow and has several good options over the past few years. But... regardless of brand there are lots of good options out there. Shoot what feels good to you and hits where you're aiming. Totally generic,  but good advice IMO. 
    • I was surprised by that too Wanderer. I bought 2 of them about a month ago and am giving them a whirl. I've got 3 on bear baits right now. I'll have a feel for them in a couple weeks. 
    • I did not last year and I am not sure about this year.  I would sure like to.  New job and some new help at the hunt didnt allow me time to volunteer last year.  Hope this year is different.
    • The Moultrie M50 was rated 81/100 on Trailcam pro.  I was surprised to see the majority of the highest rated cameras were Browning.  I like the Browning brand for firearms but have considered many of their other products to be mid-level offerings.
    • I'm not sure Hoyt4 I've never messed with the video part. I'll take a look when I get home. 
    • MJ 1657 I just bought an M50. Mills had them on sale for $129.99. The infared version was $139.99. Only been using it for about a week and so far I like it. That buck in the night time pictures is quite a ways out from the camera.    I've had a Moultrie 880 for years and it's been a solid camera.    MJ Did this Moultrie have picture video at the same time like the old 880? I have not found another camera to do that but the Moultrie and it's great. I'm running out of this version only have two left now.
