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?

      We've done well in late June.   May need to move offshore more.  Cranks or spinners till you find fish then slow down if needed.   I use the public access.  Not usually too busy mid summer.

        With the big winds this week we were not able to venture out as far, so not a whole lot to report from the Main Lake.  When it isn’t blowing too hard, the main lake rock reefs were kicking out nice Leech Lake walleyes in 14-18 feet of water.  Pulling lindy rigs with crawlers or leeches as well as slow death at .5-.8 mph was the best.  Speed is the key when dialing in these fish.  Our Leech Lake fishing guides found a nice mix of eaters and bigger fish.   Still many of the same places as last week were producing in North Bar, Fletchers, Ivans, Submarine, etc, but don’t forget to look for secondary reefs and humps that are nearby or if the fish are not on the edges of those reefs look to the mud basins where the bug hatches are taking place and drive until you graph fish.   On the west end of the lake in Walker Bay and Agency Bays, shoreline breaks that had wind blowing in were the best.  14-20ft of water is where we keyed in on.  Pulling lindy rigs with chubs, leeches, or crawlers all worked to put a nice mix of walleyes and even some nice pike in the boat.  Other areas to key in on would be under water points and bars that run out into the bays and have deep water right next to them the bigger fish like to suspend and then come in and feed during these times.

      Always worth it to go fishing.  That time of year your best bet from what your schedule sounds like would be to put crank baits on and trolling the edges and tops of the reefs or do some slip bobber fishing down on that end of the lake.  Huddles Reef, Variety, Olsons, etc. would all be places to start, but the crankbait bite can be good.

      Big Hatches usually get the slow bite over in a hurry! Hopefully this will only last a few more days! Boated 22 walleyes today but only managed to keep 7 small eaters in 6 hours of fishing. Cliff

      They used to have a nice gun range but some stupid locals shot their garage and blamed the range!

      I'm only 8-10 miles south of smurfy with the same experience on the lake. Mn Fishing Pros is a group of 4 guys who guide in the area & so is Jeff Sundin. Not sure what any of them have for experience on that lake but you might try to contact 1 of them to see if they have a opening that fits your time slot or they might even have some info on the lake that they are willing to share

      Headed up this weekend and next weekend.  WIll be fishing mostly Frazer.  Sounds like the hatch is on.  If anyone has been fishing walleye on frazer in the past few days, got any tips on depth?  Presentation?     Sounds like crawlers are the ticket right now.   Thanks
