Doves always have been and continue to be the most prolific migratory bird in the United States.
Harvests of these birds are in the astronomical numbers in the southern United States and less so here in the Midwest.
As we head into late July and early August, now our thoughts turn to the transition from open water fishing to the upcoming hunting seasons which are just weeks away.

As water levels are beginning to drop and return to normal, so are the crappies and bluegills.
I have noticed on the water lately that the schools of crappies and sunfish are now moving to their midsummer haunts and that includes staying suspended over deep water.
I’ve already been on some great fishing trips this season that have included Red Lake, the Northwest Angle and Leech Lake, with a lot more to come. Undoubtedly, the most memorable though will have been nothing exotic and as bare bones as you can get and involved a trip to a local lake to chase some little bluegills.
