I'm no expert but I do know that there are no alternatives.. at least for pouring yourself.. they need temps way too high.

I have bought large lead blocks at Fleet Farm before.. made for melting.. but not sure how you melt it.. maybe they have some things for that there too.

Hmmmm...

Hunting/fishing supply store?

Maybe a salvage/recycling yard.

I've even heard of people using old wheel weights to alloy with lead for a slighly harder metal.

ocf, Check your local tire shops, salvage yards, even in the curbs. For used or bent wheel balancing weights, I see them all over on the streets! Phred52

      What needs to be in the boat, to be legal to fish Superior. I've been trying to find it in the book with no luck.

      I just went through it. Now my pup is a giant lab, but it is fitting. There is a lot of knowledge here with raising pups. Just ask and you will get great help

      I've tried to look for the source of this supposed information that the crayfish in Vermilion are high in mercury and same as the others - found nothing but stories like this on forums, etc...  In fact, I've typically found posts from someone on different forums, same name with that story.  In those cases, they state they talked to "someone" at the DNR in Tower who gave them that information...  roughly dating back to 2002-2005 time frame.   I'd like to think if this were actually true, there would be some data for the public to see to support it...   In the meantime, we catch em and boil them up every year.  Good eating when done right!  We figure we eat them once or twice a year, shouldn't be an issue...
