Gear and Gadgets.....

7 posts in this topic

So i've been spending a lot of time looking through cabelas magazines lately wondering what to buy for this fall. With all the new gear on the market, what is one thing you've bought that turned into something you absolutely love and won't go into the field without.

One thing i love is a sling for my shotgun while duckhunting. it is so useful to throw your sling on your shoulder and have your gun by you at all times and the sling makes that super easy.

I second the sling idea, but the one I like for my hunting is the Primos Bow sling. It has 2 molded cups for the cams on the bow and a shock-corded type sheet for around your strings. Nice for over the shoulder or across the back while hiking.

I also got a Cabelas headlamp last year for christmas and love it. No more holding my flashlight in my teeth while I try to find something in my bag. The LED's are brighter than the spot and keep the batteries much longer.

another vote for the sling on the shotgun. range finders are awsome (don't have one yet!!) I will have to try the bow sling. I think that my vote would be a pack of some sort for hunting. last year i got a cheap camo backpack ($5 walmart special) and i cary all my stuff in it and i can fit lots of clothes for when it is colder. It does seem kind of big at times though.

A headlamp. I bought the $10 one at Walmart and love it, frees up your hands for carrying your bow and other gear. When bowhunting is done, it goes in my icefishing gear, great for that walk off the ice in the dark.

How does a bow sling work? Do you take it off when you're in the tree?

      6/24/17     Got out on Washington this morning to target walleyes. Cold and windy! Busy today--a bass tournament going on. We fished several spots with leeches under a slip float for eyes. Only caught one small one, and missed a couple bites that might have been walleyes. Did catch several medium to large smallies and one largemouth. Got off the lake about 10:00 as we saw the first wave of rain approaching. Not interested in fishing cold, wind-driven rain. Guess mother nature doesn't always look at the calendar, which said summer started this week. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Just back from Big Sandy, fished the main basin and concentrated on two humps. Caught five walleye and kept three that were in the slot, all about 15 inchers. Quit sooner than planned as the wind really started kicking up. Leeches, lindy rigs, red hooks and a green bead did the trick. Tried spinners and crawlers with no luck. All were caught in 9 - 12 FOW.   BIG fire in McGregor this morning, a trucking business on the east end of town burnt down.

      Alright, so I got out yesterday in the early afternoon I decided to go try the Mississippi there is this little public boat dock, so I dropped a line there and within the hour I got a Northern Pike it was about 24 inches long and then about a half hour I pulled in a blacktail redhorse an it was about 12 or 13 inches long. So not a bad day out there on the river for dock fishing! I caught both the fish on them green night crawlers, I also tried throwing out a crank, a jig, and a watermelon Senko. All they wanted was them green worms! Thanks for the tips I finally caught a couple fish (hopefully there is more to come)

      Well if you are looking in the Minneapolis lake nokomis has a fishing pier   North metro Crooked lake in Andover has a pier. There is a nice park as well and all the sunfish you want to catch no big ones though.
