Another option would be a Browning BPS. That's what I shot when I switched from Right to left. Great gun! I think I paid a little more than 300 but I bought it 13 years ago and still shoot it.

There are lefty 870's in Gander and Cabela's, but they are going for a tad more than that.

I've had my 870 WIngmaster lefty for 30 years - I love it. I just found a new 26 inch barrel with remchokes for it for 50 bucks - unbelievable.

if you buy the browning bps you don't have to worry if you are ever going to get rid of it. it is a good gun I have two. I have a auto that I mainly use now but I won't give up the bps's.

The BPS is a great gun in that it doesn't matter if you are left or right it works for either. They are more than $300 normally. They are usually in the 400-500 range depending what you get. But they are well worth it a browning has never let me down.

Another BPS/lefty here. I have a 12 and a 10. The 10 has been used and abused and never let me down.

I shoot a regular mossberg 835 ulti mag left handed without any problems. The main issue for me is the location of the safety for quick shots. I like the thumb safety. The shell ejecting across my feild of vision does not bother me at all. The main thing is getting a comfortable gun for you to shoot!

I've been shooting a BPS for what seems like forever. Bottom eject, top tang safety. John Browning did himself proud. I love mine.

Is it just me, or does this topic sound dirty?

      Hi guys!  I used to be on this site long ago (participating mostly in the Mille Lacs forum), and the system wouldn't recognize my email.  So I created a new user name.   I'm planning to spend May and June in Ely.  My project is to autochart and create maps of a few small lakes I like off the Echo Trail, which I'll do via my Helix I have mounted on my bright orange fishing kayak.   I don't need any advice, as I pretty much know the area and what works to catch fish.  I'm just looking to possibly connect with other Ely anglers while I'm up there.  I'm tentatively planning on starting next week, assuming the "wintery mix" and wind in the forecast abates.  I'll be paddling around a bunch of different small lakes, going back and forth and back and forth, listening to either WELY or WEVE on my radio.  So if you see me, stop by and say hey.

      First off, welcome to the site. The Red River page gets kind of quiet but if you look back at previous posts there's a lot of good info. I've never fished much for cats but when I have I have always used cut up goldeye. I've also heard frogs are good but I have no first hand experience with that.    1- I feel that the fishery in Fargo is excellent and overlooked by a lot of people. The biggest eyes that I've caught have been on the river.  2,3- I normally use a chartreuse twister tail on the river with a jig head. The main reason for the color choice is because that is what I have an abundance of. I've caught them on white and yellow also. I don't use live bait at all unless the kids are along. They're not really able to do much pitch and retrieve yet and the minnows give them a little better chance I feel.  4- the only thing I've used is cut bait so I'd recommend finding some gold eyes or some suckers and chunk them up for bait.  5- last time I looked the ND NR license was something like $35.    My biggest tip for the river and pitching jigs would be that if you aren't getting snagged once in a while your jig is too light. Hung up too often and you are too heavy. I'm normally in the 1/8-1/4 ounce range. I have also caught a bunch of fish pitching cranks. I wasn't a believer until I watched Ed Carlson fish next to me and reel in fish while I kept on pitching my jig and not getting anything. Try something that's got a nice wide wobble. And if you are going to toss anything into the river be sure to remember that anything thats tied onto that line may not come back. I have donated lots of tackle to the old river gods over the years but I have also been rewarded with a lot of fish and some real dandies. These river fish have a lot of fight in them.     Remember that if you're keeping any walleyes or sauger on the red is that the limit is less than the MN and ND bag limit. I have seen more than one person ticketed at the north dam with their stringer of 4 eyes.

      Hit the secret beach on the sippi for a couple hours today with some crawlers. wind was pretty crazy. smally bit first then a sucker. then caught 4 eyes and decided to leave. a young guy came down while I was fishing and was casting a spinnerbait and I asked him what he was after. he said bass so I let him know that it is illegal to target them and eyes till next month and that the game warden watches people in the area quite often. He said he had no idea he could not fish for them, thanked me and said he wont cast anymore. nice young guy. I bet he will be down again with some crawlers.
