good hunting lakes/streams

Recommended Posts

I'm back in business finally got bearings for my trailer, found out that they were from a model t ford. Took me forever to find a place to help me out. anyway trying to get out scouting this weekend and next. I hunt pelican lake in monticello area and would like to have a couple of lakes to escape the crowds on it. any advice would be greatly appreciated. I would love to try some rivers or streams that are accesable by boat and trailer.

Your going to be hard pressed to find guys who will share good hunting spots without crowds.

I would just put lots of miles on the car and use google earth.

I have also heard the crow river can be good for floating.

Why leave Pelican? most hunters stay close to the access, go out there now and scout around, There are some hidden gems around that lake that see no pressure what so ever, I know it's hard to believe

If someone told you about a spot to try in that area to escape the crowds the crowds would come. Go drive around and scout. There are many area's out there to hunt, do some legwork.

They mean the Crow River. It would be tough to float, the water is very low, you'd be better off walking it.

thanks for the advice guys, you think maybe a a small row boat would be better then. I could get one from up north that way have something for the gear. One more thing not looking for specific spots but st.michael maybe put in or more out of the city? Don't know of any landings...Thanks

    • I figure any fish that doesn't get into my boat was a wall-hanger for sure. 😀
    • I've never bought a car/truck over $15K, so yeah.  It would take a powerball jackpot before I was in the market for a dealer showroom boat.
    • Dry brine with Mortons Tenderquick, amount directions per pound are on the package in a ziplock in the fridge. Add seasonings like onion, garlic, black pepper, maple sugar or brown, allspice, cinnamon, nutmeg. What ever you prefer. Take meat out of brine and let sit in Fridge overnight. Smoke around the 130 degree mark for 12 hours (for my liking) or as smokey as you like. Cut into 1/8" slices and cook in the oven 425 degrees for 20 to 30 min to your desired crispness. 
    • I just bought two panels that I am going to trim slightly to replace one of the 3 grates on my Big Horn grill... I actually have a buddy that received them this weekend for fathers day and say they work just as advertised on his pellet grill.... I will give an update next week when they arrive.
    • never heard of it....  
    • Since we are talking about searing stations, etc....   Has anyone ever used the Grill Grate product on their pellet grills?   https://www.grillgrate.com/shop-grillgrates/standard-grillgrates/pellet-grills/
    • You've got the right idea. There are a ton of bacon recipes here on HSO if you search for bacon - I've pasted one here to what seemed like one of the more popular brines. I made bacon once, and it turned out OK, but it's a long process.  Good luck and let us know how it turn out.  
    • Reverse seared a big thick 3lb cowboy ribeye for Father’s Day over charcoal. The novelty of the idea was fun. Then after cooking you realize you pay a lot of money for bone and fat and not a lot of meat.   Lesson learned to just go with a nice thick regular ribeye steak instead next time.  
    • Well this weekend certainly wasn't ideal for fishing weather. Between strong winds and storms every day Friday-Sunday it made it hard to get some good quality fishing time in. Just kept getting chased off the water with thunder and lightning in the area every day and night. Never saw a lot rain but plenty of storms in the area to keep us off the water.   Did manage to catch some fish regardless just nothing big enough or worth keeping. Not a keeper walleye caught and lots of skinny 8-9" perch which were all released.
