6 posts in this topic

I am building a blind on our duck boat and want some input on some of the different grass mats used to camoflage the boat. Best quality? Best price? Best way to care for the mats for long lasting? or any other input you feel necessary.

I would second the Avery fastgrass! I made a really nice blind for my 10 ft Jon boat and zip tied the sections to 2' green nylon coated chicken wire. I have two sections that I can roll out and hang onto my "S" hooks on my frame. I have found that this works great, because you are not stressing out the knots of the grass when you hang it, and you can adjust the height of the grass with ease. I have used the same grass for 3 years and I don't have any torn knots. I have two 12' sections of wire. You can also stretch out your mats a little more doing it this way. You would be surprised on how they accordian out.

      What a novel concept!  Talking fishing on a fishing forum to increase interest and activity.  You may be right, it could work!

      So let me see if I understand this? You guys on the last page or so are going to "Lets Save This Forum" by high jacking the thread and talking fishing now!     Dam that could just work? Carry-on!   Good Luck.

      Thanks guys for the tips looks like 3-4inch stick bright stick baits and bright spoons seem to be the go to.  Anybody ever vertical fish them or live bait? Hope the weather is.good next friday, i have always wanted to get out there and try it.  Bonus is the wife would be happy with some fresh salmon.

      I have been looking at the gages this morning and the L.F. still appears to be either frozen or have an ice jam at the most downstream gage in Little Fork. The discharge is not working but the water level has risen 3' since Sunday. The next upstream gage however is flowing good and has risen from 1,200cfs to 5,000+cfs since Sunday and has risen 8' in the same period. The Big Fork doesn't have cfs data so I am thinking its frozen but the height has risen 2.5' since Sunday. I would think with that flow and the warm weather it's only a matter of days until they both go.   Other trips like the Black River and Rapid River are all on the rise both cfs and height.   Also, I took a look at the Rainy at Manitou Rapids and it has risen about 2' and has gone from 14,000 cfs to 17,500 cfs since Sunday.

       I'm heading up Friday. Going out of spring steele. I have a delivery route that took me up there today.  Took lunch at the warroad access. They got it closed with yellow tape.  If anyone heads up earlier an update would be great.  I'm planning on an atv but will walk if I have to.  Thanks.  Good luck and tight lines!!!
