Hevisteel

So has anybody tried the new Hevisteel. It is billed as Hevishots little brother and isnt quite as expensive as the Hevishot is. I think that it runs about $20 per box of 25.

Used it last year during Duck season and HATED IT. I had better luck with regular steel and of course Hevi Shot or Kent Matrix.

3" #6's didnt pattern worth a crap in my super x2 which uses the invector + choke system. ended up shooting pigeons to burn up the box.

Carp, was the bad pattern caused by shooting too tight of a choke? I think you have to open up to at least mod, or possibly improved. I havent had a chance to try any yet but wilol definitly pattern before going hunting with it

I used 3 1/2" hevi-steel 4's on ducks this year and it killed a lot more ducks per shot than the faststeel 2's that I usually use. My best 40 yd pattern was with the factory mod. rem choke. The hevi-steel has been recently redesinged. If u had the red hull shells they are the old design.

      Hi all. I'm a newbie. And Iowan, but I love everything Minnesota. Ice Fishing is a short season here. I'm down by cedar rapids. Girlfriend and I are going to faribault this weekend to try some lakes. Any tips would be appreciated. I honestly don't keep many walleye back here, we imposed our own 17 in to 24 in all we keep standard. And it's helping the River in our area. At Least we think so.  Anyway, we're just looking for some good walleye and Pike action any bonus panfish too. If you could give us some legit pointers . That would make an awesome trip. Thanks again. Tight lines God too many beers . We only keep 17 to 24 inch eyes

      First Welcome to FM, They definitely can be caught during the day but the water is really clear usally on that lake and I have found over the years of fishing it that the evening into the dark bite can be way better. Don't rule out trying to target those fish you saw.  Some options are fishing  on a cloudy day, or try down sizeing your presentation as you may surprise yourself and put a few topside.

      Electrical tape for me nice and smooth. If your worried about the residue at the end of the season a little tip is rub  toothpaste on the cork work it around then wash in water.  Cleans them up takes the scum off and they look good as new when done.
