I am sure it is not a problem. Usually lead shot don't need the help that steel shot needs. I would pattern it to see the benifit of any.

you will have no problem shooting lead out of your pattern master. i use mine for every thing i shoot my pheasant, turkey, duck, geese, trap, and dead coyote threw it. never had a problem.

Yep, both of these post are correct. I have shot a Patternmaster for about 3 years and it handles everything well. I have never seen a choke that has a problem with lead, but there are a lot of them that are lead only or bismouth. Steel is a lot harder and can actually damage certain chokes or barrels on some older guns.

Lead works just fine through Patternmasters. I'm sure you wont be disappointed with your purchase.

You can shoot just about everything trough them except for slugs and federal "Black Cloud"

      Leech, we're getting out feet wet then we can post within topics. Glem,  What will help you are trolling boards and rod holders.  I use a mast and main line board system but Inline boards work and a lot of guys use them and something for you to consider. Some stick baits to consider are Bombers, Brads, X Raps, Husky Jerks.  Spoons- Jim's Flashbacks, Moonshine.  Patterns/Colors- Pink, Purple, Monkey Puke, 57 Chevy, Pink Lemonade, Water Melon are just a few.  Superior is color specific like no other body of water so it pays to have a variety. Speed can also be critical in getting a strike and then you have to think about was it the rise or fall within the column that was responsible.   Last year you'd catch me at 3mph pulling sticks which isn't the norm.

      Shorelander trailers are assembled right next door to Lunds. The serial # on the trailers are assigned a boat serial # after they are delivered.  All Lunds and Crestliners leave the factory on Shorelander trailers. With the exception of a dealer occasionally picking up just the boat itself.

      Try giving Modern Assemblies in New York Mills, Mn a call.  They are the ones that built those seats for Lund. The can probably rebuild them for you to original. They do nice work at a reasonable price.

      I've been out shore fishing a couple times at Hidden Falls and Minnehaha up to the dam.  Been really slow for me too.  Going out again this morning for the first time in a couple weeks.  Hoping to find a better bite as I've been hearing slightly better reports from boaters in the area.
