Thief Report?

Recommended Posts

I wanted to get to Thief Lake this weekend (Oct.31-Nov.1) but couldn't make it. I'm wondering if anybody hunted there and if there were lots of ducks? Thinking I may have missed out on some good hunting.

lots of birds around, but we had a hard time getting them to decoy, I was on the lake fri. and sat. with a buddy. redheads, ringnecks, cans, mallards, and a few others made up most of the bag.

we had to break ice both mornings it went out a few hundreds yards I guess. yesterday around noon or so the ice was all but gone expect from the shallows. if your going to mallard hunt in close it could be tough. if it warms up a little that should open back up.

the last three years we haven't made it until the end. the second weekend of deer hunting is when we've been froze out, then we move to the river for the last week or so, then head south.

hope this helps.

Thanks for the report, Zero. I appreciate it. Sounds like you got a nice mixed bag. Good luck the rest of the season!

not a problem, if I'm not there one of my hunting buddies is. I get reports almost every night from thief, Roseau river, elm, farms pool( i don't think there is much water left in farms pool) warroad area, goose lake, nelson slough, nearison impoundment (can be a real good place) and a bunch of no names.

should be on the lake thurs. fri. sat. and hopefully sun.

i'll let you know what happens

still looking for a nice bull can to mount, I've shot a few over the years and blew up a few and the dog chewed a few, so that's my goal this year.

good luck to you.

    • Oh, you haven’t seen me upset.  After I miss 5 straight - then I get upset! 😁
    • dog is good too, did not know it then, but when I was over seas and had some and found out later.. it was the last tome ...  would not say try it cause they are my friends....
    • I'm sure it's tasty, but I have never tried dog either. Calm down people, I am just kidding around.   We used to keep landscaping supplies out on a farm in Rosemount back in the day, and blast away at them when they emerged from the barn. Sticking with the Clint theme.............. Farm cats gotta eat, same as worms.   Being a member of the dove family, I am sure the meat is simular.  
    • Remember, he liked the neighbors food after he tried it. 😋
    • I fished most of the lake in scout mode today.  Found walleyes early on midlake humps and bars in 18-24 fow.  Got a couple to go on jigging raps but then they shut off.  Spent the rest of the day trying to pin down a panfish pattern.  Found good numbers of sunfish in shallow cabbage beds(6-9 fow).  None were huge but good numbers of 8-8 1/2" gills.  A few crappies are mixed in with them and some are suspending off the break.  There are also good numbers of sunfish in or just outside the reeds.   Most of the sunfish ran smaller though although there were some keepers there too.  Pike and bass I did not target but saw others do so successfully.   Plenty of bass in the reeds and spinnerbaits seemed to be what most were using.   Troll over the weeds and you will be rewarded with pike.
    • I got primary on the Crow-Hassen with a rank of #21. New experience for me as well, with MBRB, been a member for a few years just could never get a hunt.   DanBo - That was one I had on my list as I have a buddy that lives just a few blocks up from there.
    • try them before you knock them....
    • we've only  used the adapter so far at the campsites, as I've only seen the standard plug in's at the boxes; and only running some lights and AC at the most at one time, no fridge to run
    • That is crazy nice Hoey.  😎   But for $3,400 I'll just keep my dirt flakes on the floor and may be pick up another used sled or wheeler! 😋
