Lake Bistineau

Postby southbistineau » Sun Sep 30, 2012 3:17 pm

Have a small fishing camp on Bistineau by Peggy's Island. I've never duck hunted before but will be trying it out this year. I will pretty much be by myself. I have a pirogue, good pair of waders, and a dozen decoys. Any advice from any of you that have hunted in that area?

Plan for right now is to throw out some decoys and hunker down by some trees. Will probably try around Peggy's as well as find some holes in the timber. The lake is down right now so I pretty much can stand anywhere except the channels. I know that I need to stay clear of the permanent blinds in the area as I don' t want to make enemies.

Also plan on jumping wood ducks from the pirogue since I have done that on accident quite a few times in the past.

:help: Any advice?

Thanks

Go waster your time fine with me I dont hunt that end of the lake just tring to save you a head ache. The good spots on that end of the lake are hunted every day and all have blinds on them. Over pressured and only last the first split then they complain later in season when birds have left.

Get out there now and plant millet on the mud flats.
My lab died, and no one on Duckhuntingchat even cared.

Google I'm feeling lucky: DU biologist stole my car

I hunted there back in High School just about every weekend............. More fun with friends than anything else. Watched Water Turkeys fly to the river every morning and fly back every evening. Good luck though. :beer:

Went out Saturday mid morning to look around and fish some. Y'all aren't lying about the water turkeys. Group after group just kept flying over for at least thirty minutes non- stop. But I do hope there will be a few ducks in this area. I really want to hunt here, as I try to learn what to do, since it is so close to my camp. Not at that point of wanting a limit. I just want to see some ducks that are close enough to shoot at. Shooting skills will be a totally different challenge :lol3: :rolleyes:
