Food Plots?

3 posts in this topic

I have been thinking about starting a spring and fall food plot and i was just wondering what you guys have had good luck with? i was looking at some of the seed from the whitetail institute, maybe a chikory or clover? Are any of them good for spring and fall? maybe if you mow em off around august sometime? thanks for the input in advance guys!!

Antler King products are great too, try the trophy clover mix, which can last like 5 or 6 years on 1 planting. another one i have used is fall/winter/spring mix, can be planted whenever, and will start growing within 2 weeks! make sure you have a good PH (5.5 - 7 for most plants) or you will just be wasting your fertilizer, seed, and time. it is a commitment, but worth the results. have fun

what ever you buy, make sure you take a look at the seed content sticker, usually on the back or bottom of the bag. pay a special amount of time checking this out and finding out what percentage of the bag contains inert matter. sure a 50 lb bag may look cheap, but if it has a high percentage of inert material, you're just buying a 50 lb bag full of crap. just cause some seeds seem expensive compared to the bag next to them, doesn't mean its a rip off, it probably has a higher concentration of actually seed.

      I scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.

      That ion x does look sweet! Not sure if I can justify the switch from my current ion... what was your out the door cost?

      I was thinking the same thoughts, I saw the pond by my house locked up, figure someone will be sitting in front of the courthouse before you know it..

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.
