Sight Pins

3 posts in this topic

I am going to Sell my HHA single pin for a Copper John. What is everyones preference .029 or .019 pins.? I am having a hard time deciding which way I want to go. My HHA is .019 which is nice for long target shots but for hunting what would be recomended? Thanks

I think its personal pref... I have a copper jon and have the .19... I do believe the larger pins gather more light? Which might help you in low light situations.

I have .29 pins and looking closely at it this past week i realized that to get the fiber optic wire to stay in the pin, they melt it over, creating a mushroom like end where you actually aim with. This would be something to look into, Do the .19 and the .29 pins have the same "mushroom" diameter? if yes, go with the .29, because the actual sight pin would be the same diameter. if not, personal preference. hope you understand what i am trying to say. just something to look into

      What's your fish of choice to pursue? A weekday fish you could find after work are crappies, the basin bite on your local lake/lakes could make for a fun night bite. Panfish in general are fun to chase anytime, northerns are fun to target too but that's more of a weekend thing until we start gaining more daylight. Walleyes are punks to me and I've never been patient enough to target them unless I'm on LOW or Upper Red lol.

      How do you even get on this lake to ice fish?  Seems to be surrounded by Private land.

      Well Friday was a little slow picked up some nice gills here and there no crappies. Sat morning picked up a couple 10 inch gills and a couple more for the bucket here and there. Sat night 930 the crappies came through I caught 17 biggest was 12. Sunday picked a few more gills up for the bucket before heading off to a different lake for walleye. again fish wanted nothing to do with minnows only caught one with them. All other fish caught on a tungsten orange and green glow tipped with only a wax worm.   we were in 12 fow the sunfish were 2 off the bottom crappie cruising 4 off bottom Side note tried walleye tonight missed 3 of them! Now I remember why I don't walleye fish much stupid things

      I had the showdown as a hole hopping sonar but found I used my LX5 a lot more.  I went to the 7 and did not like it because it was bulky and hard to get used to both hopping holes and room inside one man Frabile.  Sold the 7 and bought another LX5 and do not see me going back to any other.  I have a wheel house and found is the only time I used the 7.  If you do a lot of fishing outside and like to move around.  I would stick with the 5, I now own two of them and don't see me using anything else.
