Decent shoot this morning

Recommended Posts

We hunted Canada this morning and saw more birds than in a while. Not great but they did decoy pretty well. From what I'm hearing I might be staying home and hunt rather that go to western zone. Also saw some snow geese migrating.

Nice job! Question-are you really eating merg and whistler? If so how do you make them even semi edible? I hunt the west end of Ontario and won't waste my time in my blind this year cuz that's all that's flying to date- I refuse to kill anything that I don't eat, not judging just very curious

Only shoot the hooded mergansers as they aren't to bad. Don't shoot other mergansers. I usually make sausage out of whistlers but I don't find them bad eating. Longtails are another story as I haven't found a good way to eat them yet. My fiends 80 year old dad also likes the whistlers.

My grandfather liked the whistlers too, God rest his soul. I hear ya on the long tails - I had them made into pepper sticks a few years ago after trying to roast one. The sticks were good, the roast one couldn't get thrown out quick enough. Good luck the rest of the season-

lots of old squaw around,few good ducks yet,maybe a year for the birds to escape us,lol

But than its hunting and harvesting like fishing and catching,

The ducks do live a long time,some over 20 years.

    • Canandaigua has been decent

      Last 3 times out we've hit Canandaigua twice and Cayuga once.  Trolling dipsys at both lakes, Canandaigua has produced 7 lake trout in both trips, almost all on copper backed michigan stingers in 40-50' down. Cayuga only produced one laker with a flasher fly. Still very new to trolling, so it's a learning in progress. I tried running one line at 45' down and another at 100' down ( deeper with a spin doctor and lake trout fly ) - bumped bottom and lost my spin doctor and fly. Damnit. Hi

    • Mexico Saturday morning

      It seems like a lot of us have struggled in Mexico bay and others are killing it. I’ll be out in the morning about 6. The boat name is Tranquilo, 25ft center console. Feel free to look for me / call me. There’s plenty of fish to go around. Unless someone has any advice, I’ll be starting around 90 to 110ft headed east/ west fishing a mix of flys and spoons 30 to 70 down. Feel free to let me know what you think of that plan good or bad.  I have out of towners on Lake Ontario for the first time so

    • Cayuga early morning 6/20

      Went for a shakedown run as the sun was rising this morning in cayuga. Just finished gutting and rebuilding my boat. Everything went well with the boat, no issues now that I sealed a couple leaks. Spent some time trolling through bait balls north of myers and ended up with two decent sized Lakers. Both lived to fight another day. Not bad for not fishing real hard. Beautiful sunrise. There is alot of debris in the water including one full log that was easily 20 ft. Be careful if your up on plain.
