Bug Tamer pants

2 posts in this topic

How much difference does the BT pants make? I purchased the jacket eariler this year and haven't had a chance to try it yet.

Tom, you said in an earlier post

"I handle the bugs with a Bug Tamer bug suit. They do cost a little but the results are great. One could get away with just using the jacket as your pants will work for the bottom."

I have had the little buggers biting through my jeans before (especially when sitting) and hope the BT suit would be a big improvement.

What's your experience with the pants?

I have bear hunted with just cut offs on when its been very hot. I have used the pants and they have performed as well as the jacket the times I have used them. A+ rating for the few times I have wore the pants. I wear the jacket approx 5 times more than the whole outfit.

      All eyes on the forks now. Weather looks perfect for a steady slow release. Minimal impact this year but I'd bet this weekend and next week will be the worts of it.

      The MN DNR website shows the Big Fork just opening up upstream and the Little Fork open for about half of it's length upstream. Flows are high but have been higher in past years so may not be high enough to cause problems. I would think within 4 -5 days one will be able to tell how severe the spring rise in the Forks will be. If the upstream gages begin to drop soon it will be a good sign as it will indicate the big push from upstream is past.

      Got a Abu Garcia veritas medium heavy 7 foot rod paired with a revo sx 7:1 I believe ratio. Will this be a good spinner bait rod? I might play with some bigger bass jigs or 3/8 jig heads with swim tails. I have 2 other rods 7 foot mediums, one for cranks moderate fast action with Revo winch,  and the other all around use a veritas with revo s 6:4 also. tired of having to retie all the time. Should this work? I don't do the big football jig things much. and have spinning rods for wacky and small jigs. Just trying to get a better system worked out Thanks guys. Lots of help on here.

      Yes, good report!   I travelled 210 from Brainerd to Duluth and see the ice is getting dark but has only pulled away from shore in a few areas.  I didn't see anyone fishing but did see a few auger piles on the ice.  The piles suggested maybe 10-12 inches of ice.  It'll go soon.   One thing for sure is the stores are DONE with the ice season.  I picked up some custom rods from Northlander and want to put reels on em for this weekend but can't find any in lines anywhere!  Called around too.  Same story - all packed away to get the summer stuff out.

      The lakes on the road going into SJU are mostly open.  A very small amount of skim ice on the downwind side...I expect it'll be gone with the wind and rain and warmer temps tomorrow.   If you see someone out canoeing this weekend, it'll be me.
