PlotMaster

3 posts in this topic

Does any one out there have any experience with the PlotMaster 400 or any other food plot type equipment??

How well do they work, how many acres can you get done with an ATV? How long does it take per acre on ground that has been in corn this year?

And any other comments or suggestions. I have about 3-5 acres of food plots planned for next year, but could have more in the future.

Thank you.

Yes, I have used the Plotmaster 400.

There is one thing I tell everyone in regards to creating any new food plot.

If its sod, ya better be ready for a challenge unless you have a farmer or someone that has large equipment to break that sod up.

If you are talking about an area that was recently tilled, or an area that doesnt have a foot of roots below the surface, then you are going to make some progress.

The plotmaster is pretty slick to say the least. One thing to note, do not try to pull this thing with anything less than a 400cc ATV. A 400 works, but I would recommend going a tad larger if at all possible. Its got a lot of stuff digging into the turf!

You can plant pretty much any kind of seed with it. And it does a very nice job too.

One other important thing to note, do NOT expect to take this through a field in one pass and plant seed. We did plenty of prep tilling with the unit before we ever even started seeding. I love the commercials or advertisements that show units like this running through a fluffy field of soil... That doesnt happen on the first pass.... Not even kinda.

The nice thing is that it does a very good job of helping get things ready for planting, and does a nice job getting the seed into the soil as well.

If interested, shoot me an email. I know where ya can get one for a weekend if you want next spring.

      There's still driveable ice in the Ely area.

        We were fishing tip-ups for pike and jigging spoons for perch over by Terry's the last few weeks. There were quite a few perch in the 3-10" range. Sometimes we had ten marks on our screens at once. They were in shallow, 6-8', and the big pike were chasing them.   Also, Rocky Reef had some pockets where the perch were thick this winter. Those tended to be in 11-16'.    I still think the perch are in there, but they're difficult to find under the ice.   Get the boat out there and idle around side-scanning for baitfish pods, kand you'll see a lot of what look like perch schools.

      White Sand had 12 inches last Monday when I fished it.  ice cracked and began shifting a few days ago.  Interesting year as ice is still tight to shoreline, but some of those cracks that developed a few days ago are up anywhere from a foot to 5 feet wide now.      I'm done. was hoping to hit N.Long one last time but not worth the risk anymore.

      46 inch pike in MN sort of a stretch as well, although I was "only" about 5 inches short on one last summer. (on vermilion)
