      Fishing Report Clubs - LIMITED MEMBERSHIP - Join Today - FREE   01/24/2018

      Fishing Minnesota had added a new menu item (see above) called Fishing Report Clubs. It's a way to keep the really good fishing reports coming and being shared only with those who also provide detailed fishing reports. We will only approve new members who request to join if they have already posted a recent fishing report in the area forum, associated with the Fishing Report Club area  you want to join. We are going to limit the number of regular memberships, in the Fishing Report Clubs, to the top 20  members in each Club, to those with the best frequency and quality fishing reports provided in the club and less so in the regular fishing report forum open to all members. The higher quality fishing report reserved for the club of course. If  you want fishing reports  around your area, I would Join Now, some of the clubs are starting to fill fast. Use the Fishing Reports Club link in the Menu above (after you've posted a fishing report in the regular area forum) and request to Join.

Arrow rest ?

Recommended Posts

Fishdeer

Im still shooting the old flipper rest style, looking to change to newer style. BISCUIT OR DROP AWAY ? i shoot carbon with vanes, and i dont want the arrow falling off while walking around. Throw some ideas my way. or should i just wait to change after the season.

keep in mind any change in your arrow rest will probably need quite a bit of tuning/re-sighting ect. If you would rather not deal with that right now. Then I would wait till the off season.

As for not letting the arrow fall off while walking around. I would say your best bet is the Biscut. I myself shoot a drop away(Trophy Taker Shakey Hunter and love it.)

I've heard the whisker biscuit tears the fletchings off the arrows. I use trophy ridge drop rest witch worked flawless Sat. evening on my first buck with a bow (6 pt. bow hunted 2 yrs. before everything worked in my favor now I'm addicted).

I had one of the local pro-shops put a QAD Ultra-Rest LD on my Switchback a little over a month ago...was shooting bullet holes within a few minutes. Its a fall away rest but it has complete capture feature until you shoot. I think it worth a look.....just google QAD...they have a video demo......good luck.

Tell me more about the QAD. So you have no tuning or contact issues? I heard they are hard to get out of the way of faster bows. Since you have a SB, you're doing okay? What kind of fletchings are you shooting cliffy?

The things I like about the QAD LD is the fact that it has total containment...you can put your bow in any position and the arrow will remain captured. I also like the fact that the rest will not drop unless you actually shoot your bow...the rest remains in the upright and captured position in a slow let down situation. The LD stands for lock-down...and this keeps the forks from possibly bouncing back up and striking your fletching.

My switchback is cranked down at 72lbs with a 29inch draw shooting a total arrow weight of just over 370grains...with nothing on the string (vapor trail)...so Its plenty fast...but I understand what your saying. I have been using 2inch Blazers on my arrows and have no contact issues.

I am rather new to this sport...so I have limited experience....but I watched the pro-shop employee set up my bow...I shot it for or five times thru paper....he made a couple of adjustments...I shot it a few more times....one more adjustment....and its bullet holes. So, I thought it appeared pretty easy to get set up.

If you google “QAD” on the internet..you should be able to find their web-site...and they have a demo video shows what I am talking about. If someone is in the market for a new rest....I think the QAD LD is worth a look.

Cliffy.

I have ripcord drop away, you can cock it up for a total arrow containment or shoot it with the rest down. With the arm rest cock up you can walk around with the arrow nock on. I prefer drop away rest for the vane clearence and are easiest to tune. If you know bow stuff, than changing anything on your bow and tuning shouldn't be a problem.

I have the trophy taker drop away rest paired with a small arrow clip made by cobra. The rubber clip is adhered to the shelf is holds the arrow just tight enough so that when you draw back it's picked up smoothly. The trophy taker rest was the only one that seemed to drop away fast enough for my arrows to clear and I've never had a problem with the arrow falling off the rest, it sits far enough down that it won't. With that rubber clip the arrow will not fall off while walking around. It works awesome.

      Hey relax, I haven't been out since that weekend. With an 11 months old at home, fishing gets put to a halt quickly! I've been following the threads as much as I can. I know guys are catching crappies in the deeper water still, basins with the chance to go up to shallow. French is usually good for that but have heard Roberd's has come in late. Two weeks ago there were ice castle's everywhere and we were drilling to the end of the auger. I like Cedar too near Faribault because it's an easy access and typically holds fish. You'll have to let me know where you go and how you do! Fish on!

      Have to Agree moose the turkeys are becoming a little smarter each year. Better decoys have definitely upped my odds last few years. Seriously considering those Dave smiths or some Avian X.  Moose what are you using for a setup combo with those Avians? My customs look nice but always looking for something better

      Watching fish on the camera is really fun> One day a musky was being a real pia!  But it was fun watching him. Some days it's around some days not. today I saw him only once.  You sure can learn alot on what it looks like on your depth finder and how the fish are reacting to the different techniques a guy uses!  Have fun, good fishing!

      The tip-up was in slightly shallower water but the difference was probably about two feet.  Sounds like Devil's Lake is the good bet but that's quite a jaunt.  I have heard that water clarity is a big issue out west and that would really stink if you get somewhere and can't see.  Might soak some suckers on Mille Lacs since it looks like the pike angling season is extended again this year.  Good luck this weekend!

      Decoys sure have come along ways from the foam things my grandpa used. I bought some Avian X decoys and retired grandpa’s foam things. I have noticed I am getting more birds into range with the better decoys.

      I found a great bait selection at the Baxter Fleet Farm today.  3 sizes of suckers, multiple sizes of golden shiners, and of course fat heads and crappies. The first bait shop I tried only had fat heads and crappies.
