Snowshoes

6 posts in this topic

Anyone know a lot about snowshoe or own a pair. I was looking at getting some to run my line this winter and to ice fish in the BWCA. I see that Cableas make some, I hear that Tubbs and Atlas are also good.

I use old wooden ones. The reason being is i can fix them on the line if i have too with parachute cord, etc... If I was not dealing with 30 below and colder i think you could easily get by with a nice pair from cabelas.

Buddies and I run the magnesium g.i. type,not the prettiest shoe out there compared to the wooden ones but maintenance free/lightweight and pretty much indestructible. There's several of them on EBay right now or you can often find them at army surplus stores. None of us have ever had any issues with them,great shoes.

Several of the state parks offer a class for building your own pair. Lake Maria's is the 22nd & 24th of January. Check the MN DNR homepage for a listing if your interested.

I had at one time a pair of Cabela's Alaskan Outfitter Series (green) snowshoes and I broke two different pairs. The people at Cabela's replaced the first set with the same kind and then they replaced the second set with their Outfitter Pro Series (yellow). I'm not sure who makes the Alaskan Series, but the Outfitter Pro Series is made by Atlas and I haven't had a problem since.

      Nice fish and plenty of them is what has been happening this week. Almost as many slots as keepers.  We have been jigging but pulling spinners or cranks works great too. One of the attached pics is what is showing up in the deep mud, mostly Saugers now but more Walleyes and tons more fish piling in the next few weeks. Joe Paradis from Plummer Mn out with me this morning behind the fish board and, from Thursday fishing buddy Mike Lindholm with the biggest, fattest, best looking 25 incher I have seen in a while. Having plenty of fun fishing in the wind

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!

      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.

      It spit her out after the first bite..
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.
