NO ICE

Things have been busy, busy, busy around here. I wrapped up duck season, spent time at 2 different ice fishing shows, got some fishing in, and worked on a few other things. It's been a lot of fun this fall but I am ready to transition into full on winter.

It's always disappointing when duck season comes to an end, it's such a short 60 days in the grand scheme of things. We still have a 2 day late season to look forward at least. I'm pretty happy looking back on this duck season. It wasn't spectacular but it was just all around a good season, and I've got a lot of good memories of it. Hutch and I had a bunch of fun in his 3rd season and he is doing everything I expect him to do. I never really had a hunt this year where we just made a big pile of them, but good days were consistent and there were some unexpected above average hunts.

Catch Up

It's been awhile, and a lot has happened since the last blog. It's been a great fall so far (although it feels more like winter right now), but some of the best is yet to come. The number of quality outdoor experiences I've had this fall are far too numerous to list here. But between some fishing, duck hunting, and deer hunting let's see what I can remember. 

Fishing went out on a high note with one last smallmouth trip in early November. Steady action and some solid fish including one over 5 made for some fun times. That trip really reiterated that being around bait is so important in the fall. If you can find a place that has food and an ambush point, they will be there! I had plans to make it to the annual jigs and pigs Portage Chain tournament but sadly there was a death in the family and that tournament would have to wait until next year. I heard the weights were up so they must have been biting.
