Wow that is a little discouraging. Looked at the DNR lake info for the last survey which was done on Big Trout lake in 2011. Not one Laker was caught in any of the test net types!
Still shows their stocking them but none showed up. Anyone try it on opener and find any Lakers?
I remembered I wrote this question. So I'm replying back. I was lucky enough to have a relative who had a Smith and Wesson Model 66-2 .357 mag (mint condition) that he was willing to part with. I haven't shot it yet. Been busy.
Anyway now what recommendations are out there for 38 shells for plinking. I've read about the problems if using to heavy a load.
