Source for camo curtains in the metro area

14 posts in this topic

My online searches are only coming up with shower curtains. I need curtain panels for smaller windows, Mossy Oak or Advantage prefered. I'd rather find already made panels, I know nothing about sewing.

Single? Or can't convince the wife that sewing curtains for the ice shack is important? grin.gif

I have found many sources on the internet that sell camo fabric in all the popular camo patterns. But then you'll have to figure out a way to sew them together.

Use camo drapes instead of camo curtains for your search on the internet. You will have better results.

I think drapes are gathered with the hook and close & open with the sliding track via pulling a cord.

Curtains use a rod. The curtains would get threaded through the rod.

Maybe I got that backwards, I don't know.

Buy material twice width of your window the make your own.

Or you could go with the swag look and not even do any sewing. Use a big ring at each corner of the top of the window. Slide you camo threw both of rings and let hang.

Use a seer curtain for that layered look.

Worse thing that could happen is you have a bunch of camo for duck hunting.

This reminds me of a buddy that wanted a camo orange hunting suit but was too cheap to buy one. First he sewed orange pants and top and then added round blotches of green, black and brown. He looked like a clown. ROTFLMAO.

I'll try the camo drapes search, thanks. Cabelas only has shower curtains and curtain hardware. Man I didnt think this would be that difficult confused.gif

So you guys are telling me there are still wives out there that sew? grin.gif

Yes I'm looking for curtains not drapes. I want to use a plain rod not hooks. These are for the new deer shack, perhaps I should contact Ice Castle they have camo curtains.

If you go to Michael's or JoAnn Fabrics they have camo fabric you can buy by the yard. They may know of some people that sew by the hour of something, that is where I would start. I was in there looking for foam rubber to make a seat cushion and covered it in camo fabric and use it on the deer stand.

Aw heck, this will show my sensitive side wink.gif Go to Mills End Textile in Brooklyn Park (I think it is there, do a search) they have TONS of camo choices, good prices and helpful.

Then sew it yourself! It ain't rocket science smile.gif Actually, I worked as mosquito research biologist for about 5 years, and we would have to make our own traps, etc., some of them used humans as "bait" - so some traps were giant! You should have seen the ladies at JoAnn Fabric when a grizzly dirty looking young guy would go in and buy like 70 yards of bridal viel material! hahaha, that was what we used for mosquito trap netting, as you can't just goa nd buy mostquiot traps off the shelf wink.gif Hehe, it actually was kinda fun. I even sewed my own custom decoy bags once upon a time, but haven't touched a sewing machine in a few years now.

There... now you can send me back to the kitchen in bare feet wink.gif

Thanks for the tips. I'll give Mill end a try. I already tried Michaels and JoAnn but they only the generic camo. I'm looking for mossy oak or Advantage.

I am sorry, that is actually the place I meant to say - the Mills End was one nearby to me and I got mixed up. Thanks RiverWader, that is an important correction. HARRIS is the place.

      We struggled on walleye on Frazer bay this saturday, so sunday morning I started throwing senkos.  Not quite consecutive casts like Wanderer, but i went all morning catching nothing, then caught these two cousins with 3 min of each other, smallie off the point, then the big mouth around the corner in a shallow bay.  18" smallie, 17" LMB. Good fun.    We did get about a dozen walleye on sunday night after the storms chased 15 boats away from the point we were fishing.  Mostly small, but a couple keepers.  Chartruese Jig and rainbows in about 10-12 FOW.  Couldn't buy a bite with a chub.

      I have good Jeremy how have you been doing. I need to get out fishing with you soon.
    • Walleye #1
      Stick in the Mud   I do think sometimes that those fish see so many jigs and shiners that something such as a crawler or leech is a great change up and will get bites.  Also with the bug hatches that are happening, those are two great baits.       Leech Lake   Leech Lake Walleyes once again found themselves spread out and in different areas and related to different pieces of Leech Lake structure.  Shiners and Leeches seemed to be the bait of choice for those Leech Lake Walleyes, but plastics are still catching some fish.  Be sure to stop in at Full Stringer Bait and Tackle, Swansons Bait and Tackle, Tutts Bait and Tackle, or Sportland Bait and Tackle for all your bait and tackle needs.     West End The LOA Fishing Guides found much of their success on the West End of Leech Lake.  Focusing in on the flats around West Goose in depths of 7-10ft of water, as well as the wind blown points such as Duck, Big Hardwoods, Ottertail, Pine, and Bowmans.  Sucker Bay also proved to have a good wind driven bite throughout the weekend.   A Jig and Minnow was the best presentation by far, but in most instances instead of jigging it, dragging or swimming it along the bottom seemed to work best, but when the front came in on Sunday the Leech Lake Walleyes were snapping and aggressively jigging was provoking the bite.  When things slowed down, slowing down with a lindy rig and leech put fish in the boat as well.  Green cabbage once again was a key to finding active walleyes and jumbo perch in 5-8ft of water.  Pitching an 1/8th oz KenKatch jig with a shiner caught Leech Lake Jumbos, Walleyes, and pike.  Slip bobbers and leeches/shiners also have put fish in the boat being either fished in the weeds or windblown points.   East End/Main Lake On the Main Lake, the rocks still were producing a great bite as well as some of the East End points such as Battle, Sugar, and Five Mile when the strong Westerly winds were blowing.  Annex, Submarine, Pelican, and North Bar were all producing fish in 10-14ft of water. Lindy Rigs with leeches or shiners seemed to work best, but the biggest fish still seem to want a 1/8th or 1/4oz jig and shiner.  
      Leech Lake Crappie and Bluegill fishing still remains strong.  When the weather warms up for a couple days both species are moving onto their beds and are actively feeding.  Looking to Boy Bay, Millers Bay, Shingobee, and Steamboat for the best action in 3-6 feet of water.  Just remember to use selective harvest as these fish are more vulnerable.

      Memorial Weekend,      Hit Waconia Saturday morning for bass. Caught about 40 largemouth--most from 14 to 17 inches, with a few 17 and 18 inchers--and several nice pike. Fish were in cabbage out from bedding areas, in about 6 to 9 feet of water. Fish were scattered, lying in the weeds looking up for sunfish that are staging in these areas preparing to move in and bed. With this situation, we buzzed spinnerbaits and weedless spoons over and through the tops of the weeds, and the bass aggressively came up on them, as well as some pike. Had one lazy muskie follow as well. Got good footage for a bass segment of Fishing and Hunting the North Country on You Tube. Added footage of a couple smallies from out in the Hutch area Saturday evening. The bass fishing will continue to get better as the water warms, with more big ones, and the sunfish bedding bite is probably only a week or less away. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Memorial Weekend,      Out on Washington Saturday afternoon and evening after hitting Waconia for bass Saturday morning. Caught largemouth, smallmouth, and pike. Added footage of a couple smallies to the largemouth and pike footage from Waconia for a bass segment of Fishing and Hunting the North Country on You Tube. Caught the bass and pike on Washington in four to seven feet of water, out from bedding areas, on spinnerbaits, Rippin' Raps, and Shadow Raps. Up on Mille Lacs this coming weekend for a walleye tournament, then will be back out in the Hutch area the next weekend guiding. We were targeting bass this weekend, but got a tip that walleyes are biting on a couple Hutch area lakes on live bait. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Geez Terry! Now you will be telling me that walleyes are only good muskie bait! Cliff

      Nice report Cret Musta been a thrill getting that 9.75 Gill.  
    • JeremyCampbell
      Wow dude lol Sup Moose how you been?

      Vermilion has excellent fishing for both bass species   The east end has the best Smallmouth action and the west end has the best Largemouth action, however you can catch either on both sides of the lake.  For Smallmouth, rocks, docks, points, saddles, reeds, wood and the shoreline rubble are all very productive. Most of the green bass are found in or near the slop and the west end has the best of what they like the most. Spinnerbaits, any color as long as it's white, stick baits, cranks, topwaters, jigs, swim baits and soft plastics all work for Smallies. Jigs, topwaters(Frogs) plastics and a host of other stuff will catch the green bass. Have a great time, the midweek traffic is very minimal.   "Ace"   "It's just fishing man"

      Bla bla bla, all this Walleye talk is boring me to death.   The real opening day is this Saturday when the Muskie opener comes to Minnesota and the Big V.  I'll be out fishing with my son and grandson searching for some real fish.   The weather looks great, my baits are all sharpened and the new line is on all my rigs. Bucktails, Glittertails, spinnerbaits and minnow style cranks will make up most of our arsenal, however we will also be tossing a few topwaters looking for those Big green girls and not even talking about Walleye fishing.   Have a great weekend everybody!   "Ace" "It's just fishing man"
