Tips are needed!!

4 posts in this topic

My buddy was in an crash 3 years ago and had his arm shattered it is all pins and plates now. He had a one year cross bow permit. Last fall he went back to his compound but the pain he went threw trying to use it made him go back to the doctor to get a lifelong crossbow permit.

I need tips for setting up a crossbow for turkey hunting if there are any. Any thing we should try let me know. Thanks guys.

I don't have any crossbow experience but I have seen a tool, which you may already know, that is used to help pull the string back with one hand.

Otherwise if there is a way that you can mount a bi-pod to it or just use a portable bi-pod that would be beneficial so he doesn't have to support the weight.

You might have to wait for someone else with more experience than I with the equipment to reply. Sorry I couldn't be of more help.

      Small minnow raps, #2 mepps spinners, small spoons. Don't need anything else.

      What a great day jigging out in the mud. Little or no wind all day and it was pretty warm but fish were active, biting and large. A big change came yesterday on my close by spots that threw me for a loop but the fish a few miles away seem unphased. I will say it again a great day!

      In the summer they seem to be about 20' feet down over 50'-80' feet of water. We trolled small raps with what ever would get it down there. I also had down riggers to use.  You could try some deep hook and slip bobbers with a worm in some of the deeper bays to see if they will take it?  Good luck.

      I have a bait/rigging question. The kids and I were out on Big Watab chasing a suntan and when I told them that the lake has trout they wanted to try for them but I mostly fish sunnies and crappies. What would I need to get to fish for trout out there? Looking back in the forums I see that some guys use leadcore (I'm not buying new rod/reels) and some use bobbers. Any advice on a common bobber set up? Also, I have an "active" 10 year old so it seems that jigging works best to keep him busy, any advice on jigging for trout?

      Update! Water is way down! But I was able to get a smallmouth with a topwater plug.  And a catfish broke my leader off a  worm, was very confused. Going again tomorrow
