Feather Duster Goose Call

Recommended Posts

bnbrk94

Anybody have one? I tried one at scheels in fargo the other day and it sounded great. The things that I am wondering about is what is dymondwood? The salesman told me it was laminate. Does this mean it will contract and expand with the changing weather? Will it chip? Any help would be great. Thanks.

I just blew a Feather Duster yesterday in the East Grand Forks Cabelas. Talk about a sweet call!

I emailed and asked about their Diamondwood.. here is his response..

"Now to answer your question about Dymondwood. It is a wood that is impregnated with dye to achieve the desired color. The wood is then laquered with an acrylic and pressed under tremendous pressure and dried. The result is a layered acrylic wood that has the tonal qualities of both acrylic and wood. It is really dense so the expansion and contraction is less than with regualar wood and since it has the acrylic layering, it is very resistant to moisture and temperature influxes."

      I always did best with frozen Cisco's suspended on a quick strike rig.

      I tried a few times during that 30 below weather. Saw nothing but thousands of wolf tracks. That night while we sat on the hunting shack deck having a cigar a pack of coyotes we're yipping out by our trucks 400 yds away. They were probably tipped off by our generator though and couldn't get them to come in. I did see 2 moose 30yds in front of me going into one calling spot. That was cool.

      Coon lake up 65 and off 22. Also Lake George. Both pretty good panfish populations to keep busy.

      Thanks for the replies guys. Usually target panfish and eyes so actually going for pike is kinda a whole new world to me. lol

      Lots of little sunnies there is a spring in there in the deepest spot be care full. There are better lakes in my opinion.

      They work. And as stated, sometimes better then live suckers! Cliff

      I can’t say Big Marine is a big fish factory but it should have nice clarity.  The main lakes of Minnetonka are pretty cool to play on.  Yeah, Minnetonka is a muskie lake but there are a lot of nice pike swimming out there.

      I’ve had the same issue with keeping them alive. Dead bait works way way better than live bait anyway. Defiently going to give that a try wanderer!

      I’ve saved dead/dying suckers before.  Pull them as soon as you can and freeze em.  I’ve sprinkled them with salt before bagging and freezing.  Fish them on the bottom. There was a time I targeted big pike with big minnows and would actually kill a minnow before sinking it to the bottom with one of my lines. As with everything, it’ll work better some places at some times, not as much as a live minnow other times.  Later season when pike cruise just below the ice scooping up the dead loss of the winter, suspending your dead sucker a foot below the ice can be your big fish ticket.
