New Camo Patterns

6 posts in this topic

It looks like we will be down to two new camo patterns moving forward. The max 4 and the new shadow grass. Have you seen these new patterns? What do you think will be better for hunting here in Minnesota? I hunt west of the cities in sloughs and smaller lakes. I’m kind of leaning towards the shadow grass but it’s hard to say.

I have the shadow grass and love it. I hunt the same areas that you do. As soon as the cover starts changing color it fits in great.

Love the shadowgrass. Seems to blend in best. Max 4 seems a little dark for the cattails, better in the trees along the water I would think. I'm not sure why they decided to change to the NEW shadowgrass, maybe they thought they could trick some of us into buying all new gear to match...sad thing is, it might work!!

seabass,

I'm bummed that the original Shadowgrass is going by the wayside. The New Shadowgrass is better than the new Breakup, though. For me,it's a little more about the looks on some things so any of the patterns will work. I've just always used Mossy Oak's patterns but the Max 4 is a great pattern, too. I just hate pictures w/ducks, geese, or whatever w/mismatched camo patterns. Don't know why, but it gets to me. Guess it's a way for the camo companies to keep us spending a few bucks!!

So far, it seems that max 4 is everywhere and the new shadow grass is off the map. I haven't seen any waders with this new pattern and very few products in general. To me, the max 4 is a little too dark for wetland areas.

I can't say I like the New ShadowGrass much. I like the old stuff way better. The Max-4 might be OK...if you get a manufacturer that has the stuff colored really light...otherwise I thinks it's too dark. You'd be amazed at how well dark objects stick out in light brown cattails.

As far as what will work...I'd bet that the New ShadowGrass would probably be your best choice. May not look "good" to us, but i'm sure it will hide well.

My favorite of all time was the Delta Marsh pattern from Columbia...man I wish they still made that!!

      The walleye bite on the East end of Vermilion has been very good since the opener. Some days can be a little challenging but we have managed to limit out every day out since the opener! Not to often that that has happened! The average keeper size has been very consistent also. 14" to 16" fish most days out. Getting a few slot fish also. 26" is our biggest so far but quite a few 20" to 23" walleyes too. Lindy rigs with a glow bead and pike suckers has been my only presentation since the opener. Fish are being caught in 14' to 33' depths. Cliff

      Herky Jr. picked up a couple nice white bass, one trolling and one jigging. We turned them into delicious fish tacos!

        Yah!  The foldable ones you can.    Or, if you don't get a roof carrier you could just leave one hanging out an open window or the hatch like you're making a lumber run.

      They are BITING - bugs that is - har!   Bass have been very good some days and slooooow on others. Bugs have been awful last few trips. But the dragonflies have hatched out so they will be putting the gobble on the black flies and mosquitoes so things should improve.   Walleyes have finally showed up on the bank. Bass have been there awhile now. Went to Pelican one day and got some largemouths. The special regs there have really helped the bass fishing. Crappie are in spawning colors at several different lakes I have sampled this last week. Everything pretty much shallow but did get some walleyes in 15 FOW,

      So does this mean I should go shopping for a kayak?  But ya I should get one thoughWonder if I can fit one in a mini van.
    • Wanderer
      Yup!  I think that's where we're all heading!  'Cept I'll be in Ely.  Otherwise I'd join ya.   Have a good time, safe trip and catch lots!
