Vanes

6 posts in this topic

Anyone use quikspin vanes? Do you see a difference in accuracy? Should I stick with conventional models?

I switched to quick spin vanes this year as I have heard so much that was good about them.I have not shot them yet.

I shot Quick spinns last year... and was pleased with the arrow flight. I will shoot them again this hunting season.

I have heard they work good but they are less durable

I was using Quick Spins earlier this year...and they seemed to work just fine. I think they do slow your arrow down a little over long distance...but not enough for me to care. I did find that they didnt last very long if shot thru a WB arrow rest..or if you shoot thru a foam layered target..the vanes get wavie. I switched over to Blazers and have been very happy. HOWEVER, I have recently seen a new set of Quick Spins that are called Speed Hunters. The look just like the 2inch Blazers but have the "kicker" and grooves as reguler Quick Spins. I also heard they are a little stronger then the original. I might give them a try.

I just switched to quickspins from the standard goldtip vanes and was impressed. I thought the quickspins would be louder going through the air, but were actually quieter. I used the 3 1/4" size.

      The Rum has been dropping in flow and water level since the 20th from St Francis down if that helps

      Fishing awful this morning. Launched at 8:30. By 12:30 had exactly two small pike. Finally found some walleyes and ended up with 22 fish - NO BASS! bummer. Water cold - only 61-64 degrees. Weather man blew it again. Walleyes in about 20 FOW, best lure Lunker City Fin-S-Fish.   New camera worked well but had troubles with new sonar/GPS. Think I got it fixed once home.   Here is today's video: June 26 video

      We took our annual trip to Rainy Lake in mid-June staying at Taylor's Cove along Bear's Pass.  My dad started going there back in the late 70's and now brings me and my son.  Every year provides great memories, new and old.  Anyhow, fishing was very good, particularly for bass and walleye. Water temps ranged from 62-72 degrees.  Most days were about 75 degrees, overcast and breezy.  Our biggest smallmouth was 22" and biggest walleye was 30".  In fact we boated ten walleye 25" or larger.  We caught pike up to 37".  We found walleyes in weedy bays around 6-10' deep.  Bass were in 5-8'.  Most of the fish were spitting up perch so I imagine that's what kept them shallow.  A few pics to share.  Wish I could be there more often...

      You can't find one? How much do they cost? Try Cabela's for starters.All the I-Pilot and I-Pilot Link models have Spot-lock.   http://www.cabelas.com/browse.cmd?categoryId=734095080&CQ_search=terrova   https://www.minnkotamotors.com/Trolling-Motors/Freshwater-Bow-Mount/New-Terrova/

      Nice, I'll have to start fishing it more and learn it.

      You can find crappies and sunfish anywhere on the like around the pencil reeds and/or cabbage.  One of the best spots is right in front of the resort, but don't limit yourself there as there are plenty of spots all over the lake for pan fish.  The nice part is that you will probably also catch bass while going for pan fish.  Good luck and remember to give other fisherman plenty of room.  No reason to fish close to others.
