Help With Mineral Recipe

11 posts in this topic

I have called the brooklyn park and lakeville fleetfarms and can't locate the di-calcium phosphate. Any suggestions on where to find this stuff in the Brooklyn Park area or is this phosphate called something else? Any help would be appreciated. Heading nort this evening.

Thanks,

Dustin

I was in tke Lakeville Fleet last night, and saw some on the shelf. Is is way in the back, in the farm mineral/ softener salt area.

I'd just go into the store and search for it yourself. It is in a white bag.

If you cant find it in Fleet, any small town feed store should have it.

I made the recipe and dad just called and said that he went to the stands today and he saw two does at his already. We put them out 2 weeks ago and after 2 days they were tearing two of them up and now the 3rd one is seeing some action.

I picked up my material at the local co-op store. They were well aware of the recipe and got all the stuff for me! grin.gif

Went nort to the hunting land, set up some mineral sites saturday morning. Checked them on sunday and were already getting hit smile.gif

Got all supplies at Fleet Farm Lakeville.

200lbs is a lot of mineral for the price and love what I am seeing so far.

??? about amount to use... is more better? Obviously 200lbs is a bit much for 1 site. Just wondering how much people use on one location. Plus I've heard old stumps are a good place to apply minerals as well.

Off of the 200lbs that we made, we had 4 mineral sites set up. Good luck.

Another question about the di-calcium phosphate. I saw bags at fleet that said di-calcium phosphate, but it said 18.5% below that. There were other minerals mixed with it.

Is this the stuff I need?

      What does the Lake map chip run for it?

      Great tip Big A.  Was in exact scenario and picked one up myself.  Right after ordered the universal Lowr. pack from cabelas.  Had a 597 on old boat that sold, loved the unit for ice, excited to see how Lowrance is this time around.  Will sit next to the Garmin in boat for GPS, not a big fan of the Lakevu

      There are certainly areas on the West end of Vermilion that walleyes can spawn at. Quite a few years ago walleyes were tagged at the Pike River Hatchery and some of them were caught on the West end a couple of weeks later! So walleyes will certainly travel full length of Vermilion to spawn also! Cliff

      Walleyes are known to travel very long distances to spawn.  Lots of tracking studies done on other bodies of water show annual spawning movements of 50 miles or more commonly being made.  That puts the entire lake well within range for any given walleye that wants to make a long spawning run.   My question is this...are there spawning grounds on the West end of the lake?  Or, are most of the walleyes - includng those found most of the year on the West end - traveling to the East end and running up into Pike Bay to spawn?  Has anyone caught West end walleyes dripping in eggs or milt early in the season?   Brian

      I can not think of any lake in the Ely area that would have 5" of ice. Even the beaver ponds in the Tower area barely have ice on them! Cliff
