so, while i was up at the cabin i tried just fishing off the dock a few times. nuttin. tuesday nite  i walked down to the dock and i finally noticed what appeared to be small fish hitting the top maybe chasing bugs. i had already loaded my fishing stuff in the car and had no desire to possibly clean fish so i decided another day. so the migration to shallow waters might start soon.

i walked down to the little lake behind us. seen a couple loons across the lake frolicking like love sic teenagers, or reb and the NL!!!!!!! :rotflmao: :rotflmao: along the shoreline i could see 2 trumpeter swans sitting there motionless, almost like they were protecting a nest. :scratch: :scratch: pretty fun to watch!!!!!!! :rotflmao: :rotflmao:

There was bunch of minnows at the mouth of the channel by the little bridge by us Tuesday when I was down there, 51* surface temps too. A couple days of decent weather & I would think they'd be using it. Pretty shallow & very clear water so they'd be pretty spooky. Seen a couple different colored ducks, black & white body with a orangish brown head chasin a female around out in front of our place this am too.

Goldeneyes then.  They come up early.  Orangeish brown head may be a Redhead.  As in duck.

I was hoping some of them would nest in one of my wood duck boxes.

I see why, pretty  :cool: lookin birds for a duck. EZ to tell when 1 takes off flyin with that different sound they make. I think the new neighbor, actually the oldest son of the previous couple, put up a wood duck house down by their dock. Him & his boy like to hunt ducks.

I have some wood ducks in my water filled gully but the must have found somewhere else to nest.  Maybe a hole in a tree.  ??

Bet there was 60 rigs there already as they were parked everywhere but on the blacktop. :crazy: Tim over at the store had just finished getting more bait when we got there. He said he talked to a few & a lot of 'em had their limit in an hour, 1 even told him 20 minutes. They were all like your  :fish2: though...............................small. ;) :smiley:
