3D.. Anybody shooting any Leagues this winter?

17 posts in this topic

I know its a little early.. but pulled the target bow out of storage the other night... I need new stings and cables for it.. plan on getting a different scope for it(its currently set up for spottie shooting... but I am having a hard time finding spot leagues in the area.. so I will be joining a 3D league this year.

anybody else?

Or is anybody interested in doing a NFAA FishingMinnesota spot league for fun?.. It would just be for giggles, It would have to be on your honor system as far as scores go... any intrest in that?

I would be interested in doing something like this Dietz, but I have no idea where to get started. Do you have a place thats pretty central?

I'm not a teacher or anything so I can't afford two bows tongue.gif but I would still ike to do this with my hunting setup. If anything it will make me more confident with it.

I'll will have to see if Cabin Fever is having any leagues this winter. That will give me some time to look at new bows since the wife said I could get a new bow finally! grin.gif Apparently I'm serious about this one.

Deitz, where you planning on shooting? I still have to see if Santa is going to let me keep that Mathews I found under the Christmas tree. grin.gif Oh yeah, haven't gotten that far in the year yet.

I will be shooting spotties at Bwana on Thursdays. I took a 10 year break from it, then went back last year. Love it. I'll be warming up a bit now once a week, plus I am going to be looking at going full back-tension this year, which will be a challenge. I'll shoot tomorrow in the afternoon toward evening...hopefully find something I like, then get a new string put on the bow and readjust the peep.

few weeks away.

Deitz, I'm up for putting in scores.... like a fishing minnesota league.

Deitz,Maybe I'll see you up there then. I have little ones that are looking to play this, that and the other thing so my needs are needed elsewhere... but if the opp comes up I'd like to shoot. Just curious, you hunt Wisc. Have you seen any property over in that neck of the woods for sale? I am looking for about 80 acres and don't want to have to drive an hour to get there. You can e-mail me if you know of anything. I figure rather then buying a rifle tag for Wi., because the cabin is 2 hours away, I could buy a bow tag and hunt both and make it worth my while. Just curious. I think you have my e-mail if not, let me know, I have yours.

I shoot my hunting bow for indoor leagues all winter. I just turn down the poundage a bit for comfort.

I used to manage a sporting goods store before becoming a teacher... I picked up 3 then... I have since picked up a few at Garage sales(recurves, and fish bows) Really only bought 2 since becoming a teacher 14 years ago.. It also helps that I dont have any children of my own.

      How do you even get on this lake to ice fish?  Seems to be surrounded by Private land.

      Well Friday was a little slow picked up some nice gills here and there no crappies. Sat morning picked up a couple 10 inch gills and a couple more for the bucket here and there. Sat night 930 the crappies came through I caught 17 biggest was 12. Sunday picked a few more gills up for the bucket before heading off to a different lake for walleye. again fish wanted nothing to do with minnows only caught one with them. All other fish caught on a tungsten orange and green glow tipped with only a wax worm.   we were in 12 fow the sunfish were 2 off the bottom crappie cruising 4 off bottom Side note tried walleye tonight missed 3 of them! Now I remember why I don't walleye fish much stupid things

      I had the showdown as a hole hopping sonar but found I used my LX5 a lot more.  I went to the 7 and did not like it because it was bulky and hard to get used to both hopping holes and room inside one man Frabile.  Sold the 7 and bought another LX5 and do not see me going back to any other.  I have a wheel house and found is the only time I used the 7.  If you do a lot of fishing outside and like to move around.  I would stick with the 5, I now own two of them and don't see me using anything else.

      I'm thinking the opposite could be happening. Some people are doing fairly good and they are not saying anything. Last year a person I know did real good over 1 mile from anyone and called one friend with the coordinates of where to meet him in 2 days. He got back in 2 days and found over 30 wheelhouses right on his coordinates. His one friend that he told had then told another friend who told another friend and on and on. The key to ice fishing URL has always been to stay away from the crowds but now a good report brings in a crowd. Some of the business have decided that fewer fishermen having good fishing could be a better long term plan then many fishermen having poor fishing so they are not reporting good fishing.   Me, I think the fishing this winter is far better then last winter. Most of the people fishing URL now learned to fish URL by going deeper and deeper for the crappies. Before the crappie boom very few fishermen went deeper then 10 feet of water for walleyes. If we got into crappies or perch we knew we were too deep for the best walleye fishing. Most of my fishing this year has been in 8 feet of water or less. But also I'm standing outside and not sitting in a house. On URL you will usually get 4 or 5 times more fish standing outside or in a portable then you will in a house. I think it is from the noise or vibrations. shaky and Doc could set their house in 6 feet of water and do very good but they fished very quietly.  When fishing they had no radio or TV turned on, no generator, stepped softly and talk in whispers,,,,and they caught a lot of fish. I've sat with a camera and watched walleyes spook away when the heating stove ignited, when I dropped a rod on the floor and when I slid a chair across the floor. That is why all of our rental houses had a rubberized floor, to dampen the noise. Every year more and more people are fishing in houses rather then standing outside or in portables and I wonder if that isn't going to change how many fish are caught for each hour of "fishing pressure"/angler hours.  Sure it is nice to sit in a warm house watching TV while fishing but at least on URL I think you will also catch less fish. It will interesting to see if the DNR creel census starts to show a lower catch per hour as the percentage of people fishing from wheelhouses increases.
