I have been using a T-handle release since going from fingers to release The one I use now is made by Tru-ball spendy but very dependable. With the a T-handle your still using three fingers to draw with and you trigger with the thumb. The biggest advantage to me is being able to leave the release on the string( I use an Ultra nock on the string.) I did end up with an inch or so less draw length and a slightly lower anchor point.

i shot a winn free flight a few years ago. It was a nice shooting release, but It had a little more trigger travel than i would have liked. I also had a hard time finding a solid ancher with it. I gave it to a friend, and he loves it. he has been useing it for 3 years. If you can, find someone who has one and try it first. I think they also make 2 different heads, 1 you pull the trigger to release it, and the other you hold the trigger and release it when you want to fire, it would probly work good for the transition between fingers and release. hope this helps a little

I have had my Wynn release for 5 years now and no complaints other than when the deer is walking down the trail toward me at a good pace and I am fumbling trying to get the release to lock on my string loop. I know I could eliminate that problem by not having a string loop but I like the fact that I don't have to replace my string as often. They are great for people who want more draw length because the head is so short and I find it to be more consistent on the anchor point than other releases. It also allows me to pull back a few more pounds because it straps to your wrist and has a palm grip.

I use a light glove under it on cold days. I have a camo muff that attaches to my waist and I have a hand warmer inside it to keep my fingers warm.

I shot the free flight for quite a few years when I just stared out. I have since moved on, but it was a very good release. I now shoot a scott for hunting and a Carter for target.(I actually have about 5 different releases for target, a couple of back tension no trigger releases, but I tend to go back to the carter.

      Saturday found the panfish deep in the morning, not a fish on the shoreline to be found. By late afternoon the shorlines were packed with panfish.  Crappies just now are actually on beds.   Bluegills are have not yet started to fan nests.  The big seriously fat females are thick shallow, only a few bulls hanging around at this point.   This is for the area near Walker/Hackensack.

      Leeches under a slip bobber drifted over a small shelf off a bigger flat.  Bobber set at 8.5 feet.

      Saw a group  like you described a couple weeks back below the Sartell dam while fishing.They didnt have head gear though.They were playing by the dam gates riding the flow from the open side.Then they hung out by the closed side and I learned that its only about knee high on a certain area  that in my mind thought it was much deeper.Looked like fun for sure

      I have a Minn Kota Ulterra and am not having any problems. In last two days I have seen two fisherman struggling out on the water trying to stow their units that failed to auto stow. There is an emergency procedure described in digital manual but it is not very helpful. I have looked for a video of this procedure on You Tube but couldn't find one. Has anyone had any luck finding such a video??

      Back to fun pictures and the reason I love coming to the Tower/Ely area!   There's just an amazing difference in the environment up here.  It's something I miss pretty much every day I'm not here.  And when you have as beautiful of a Saturday as we had yesterday, I just gotta say "Ahhh, this makes everything else worthwhile."   And when I go back through my best fishing memories, SO many have been made here, and yesterday I added another.  These girls in consecutive casts:
