      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.

Anyone else have this problem?

Recommended Posts

I have a PSE Baby G which is a short bow and shoot 31 inch arrows. My problem is that when I put my quiver on and put the arrows in it they extend down beyond the end of the bow. Because of this the set up is a bit akward. I have thought about getting a extension (called a Hi Riser) to raise my quiver up. Anyone else have this problem or have other advice that might help me out?

Thanks

Use a detachable quiver and hang it in the tree by you.

I have that problem with my bow. It's 33 inches long but when I tip it to put it in the holder, my arrows rake my stand. Harveylee gives some good advice about the detachable quiver. I leave mine on if I use a tree peg for a holder but when I use it on th eplatform of my climber, I take it off. Doesn't seem to affect my accuracy (its never that great anyway! Ha Ha)

Make your own quiver. Take a piece of roof drain (plastic) gutters and make one side solid. Put some kind of "cushion" or foam in the closed end. Then make straps so you can put it on like a back packk.

This is very comfortable and very easy to reach back and get an arrow. When in a tree just take off and put around a tree.

Like Harvey Lee said you could just take it off. But, I went out and bought a Cat Quiver. It is the one that is a fanny pack with shoulder straps. I love it!! Quiet and I can carry all my stuff. I just strap it to the tree and my arrows are right there. Also It keep the fleching dry and protected in a hood.

I pretty much always take my quiver off. It's just so much easier to hold the bow or lay across your legs when you're seated. The times I have shot with it on I couldn't see that affected anything one way or the other.

could you describe your setup a little more. Is it a piece of gutter the same length as your arrows or just a piece to make a cap with foam in it? What do you use for your straps? Do you have a picture of one?

Thanks for the info and idea.

      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.

      There was a couple mixed in the bucket. They were big shiners 5 to 6 inch range. The shiners would be down for 6 hours or so each time and we never waited that long for a sucker to be taken. Just our experience. If a guy could have both I say try and see.

      Call ahead for shiners.  I’ve heard there aren’t any left in the state.  At Mille Lacs 2 weeks ago I asked for some and the guy looked at me like I was stupid. Of course I blame that on the question...

      Fowldreams, did you have shiners? Just curious if preferred them over shiners, or thats just what you had.
    • fowldreams
      suckers, suckers, suckers. This was the only bait that worked for us last weekend and when the fish hit the rattle reels line spooled fast.

      What surprised me about the fishery in SE Florida is that it is mostly live bait (Shiners). There are so many fish in those channels that the Peacock's won't chase a bait for long. I guess they can be caught on the fly but your casts needs to be very accurate and your hookset quick because they spit the flies fast. Our guide said artificials could be done but you're going to spend all day to maybe catch a few fish. Watching the videos of those Amazon Peacock's destroying topwater plugs and jerkbaits looks like a riot!!!
