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.

      I read that they are going to close the walleye season on 9-5-17 regardless of whether the state's quota is met. Fall fishing gone again........    With these highly restrictive regulations that favor ones desire over another's desire will start to pit fisherman against each other.   If we need to have less fishing pressure on the lake then maybe we should close down all of the public launches. Then some would fish other lakes but the balance would be forced to pay to launch at a resort since we are worried about them. Then that extra business could cover their losses if we eliminate live bait which would hurt their fishing launch business. Maybe we should just ban all paid launch fishing and ban all paid guide service on the lake which just brings additional undesired fishing pressure. Maybe restrict the number of hours any one person is allowed to fish the lake throughout the year.   Heck, I would even favor closing walleye fishing for 3 or 4 years straight if that would get us back to some normal regulations.   Yes, these outbursts are why I do not text any more after 10:00 at night. Time to give up the keyboard also.......

      I would look in holes and flats near them.  Deep depends on how shallow the section that you're fishing is.
