  1. Took my buddy's kid out this afternoon for the youth hunt at my lease . I took him out shooting a couple weeks ago so he wasn't scared of the gun (.243) when time comes.
    So I picked him up at 230 then stopped at DD for our iced coffees. Got to the lease and in the blind all set up around 4. We are looking over a huge Clover field and the wait begins. Every couple minutes I would look out the window to look for deer because the two of them are buried in their phones.... It was around 5:15 I looked out the window and there is a nice 8 point standing 140 yards away feeding looking right us. I already had the gun and bipod set up for a nice easy shot. He was getting ready to shoot but shaking like a leaf I had to calm him down. "It's just a deer " he's not going anywhere lol. A couple minutes goes by and the deer turns broadside. He says I'm ready. I told him whenever you have the crosshairs on him and your ready shoot. Let me tell u when that gun went off and the deer dropped the blind was going crazy !!!! Hands down the best hunt I ever been on and will never forget. He was the happiest kid ever!!!IMG_20211009_172425.jpg

  2. I went up north this past weekend with a couple of friends for the opener. We split into two groups to spread out and learn the swamp a little bit more. Lots of birds for the first hour. It looked like delta waterfowl out there. Not Sunday tho . All 4 of us got our limits and I got a banded GWT. What a awesome time . This morning nobody woke up lol but me so I went to the swamp myself and scratched out a limit . Can't wait till next year's opener. IMG_20211002_121220.jpgIMG_20211003_134158.jpg

  3. The geese decided to feed last night in the field we hunted in the morning. So why not hunt it again . This morning was heavy fog it had the birds kind of messed up as to where to go and what field to feed in cuz u couldn't see shlt. Picked at a couple flocks and small packs then. When the fog lifted it seemed like some more flocks moved around as the morning went on . 930 was about it for us. We ended with 35 again. Probably saw 5 migrator flocks one flock that decided to come in and a mile high solo . Can't beat them ones that come down balled up that high. Took my buddy's kid out for his first hunt he passed his test last night so he couldn't hunt this morning but had a awesome experience. 1632073725607.jpg

  4. Got away Thursday night and did some scouting with my buddy and found a field with 100 in it. We hunted it this morning . Had the a frame up looked dumb as usual but good enough to fool a pair , and 2 flocks. Most of the birds came at once but with all the flocks flying around those ones never worked. Sky had a blast getting back on them birds. IMG_20210904_084532.jpgIMG_20210904_081849.jpg

  5. I got out mid-morning 1030ish to 12. The light north breeze was good enough to get out. Only problem I had was no colored water. So with the water being so clear I ran a good lead ( that would be a good cast 5 paddles then click the bail over ) . Went 1 for 1, Goby bayrat . Almost had another. when I was reeling in about to pull the lure out of the water and there was a nice brown right under the surface behind it....... Lol .

    1 boat came out as I went in . 16ft or so . He went through the channel and around the dredge ok.

  6. longspurs:  where did you launch at Braddock?  Did you go out thru the channel?  If so could you tell the depth thru the channel?  I had heard that they were dredging the channel.  Was the dredge still there or is it done?  Just wondered because I have a 21 ft Crestliner that I would like to take out but still concerned about the low water level/depth of water in the channel, Any info would be appreciated.  Thank you! - Mr Kato
    I launched from a house on the lake but , the guys were still out dredging the day I was out. If it was good I would have seen a boat . River is the best launch for now. Just have to pick east or west then .

  7. I also used to run 2 rods with 80’ leads but after the first hook up my approach changed....my yak uses paddles, no pedals
    I have to paddle.... . When I hook up with a fish I reel in my other rod and hope the fish stays pinned. To much can happen if you don't.

    I also keep a extra paddle in my kayak. You never know when your paddle is off the leash or the wind takes it off the kayak , might need a back up.

  8. Fished the south end this morning for a hour . Once the sun came out I was out. I probably could have fished for a bit if it did come out. I had a spud and was checking as I was fishing. Had a good bite going to. Took a pic of what candle stick looks like for people that might not know. This is 10in of ice with 1 hit. Time to put the gear away!!IMG_20210311_074820.jpegIMG_20210311_074923.jpegIMG_20210311_075753.jpeg
