Time to gear up again.......

3 posts in this topic

Well about 4 years ago, I started a family and now because I am an Addict to this site I have been thinking about my bow alot more lately. I am thinking that I will ask for new hunting clothing this year for Christmas. Looking threw the sale adds and seeing how Hunting season is appon us I know clearance pricing will be around the corner. If I find too good of a deal then I will have to jump on it.

Well, I dug out my old hunting gear and, well it must of shrunk while in storage. It looks like I have High waters on and are quiet tight. Any Suggestions for replacement pieces, it will be a complete line, Im not looking for the high end stuff but something that will last and not tear apart in the woods.

I use to have an all in one suit that was like a snowmobile suit, real light and if hunting in cold weather I could dress up underneath it. It was an all around genearal use set up and I would like to attempt and get something similar. I know that with Bow hunting it is important as to what you get.

Any suggestions would be greatly apprecated. ....

I'm not sure how important it is?.. I keep my eye on sale stuff and buy big.. so that I can wear whatever under garments I want. I then usually mix and match my cammo patterns so that I am not wearing the same style cammo pattern on top and then again on bottom.. unless I am on the ground, then I always wear my ASAT.

Shawny- Keep your eye on Gander they usually have a tent sale to get rid of a lot of thier cammo stuff some time during the year. Thats usually what I do.

      For winter jigging with Raps I cut off both front and rear hooks and upgrade one size on the middle treble hook. Cliff

      Another observation from the tournament and pre-fishing: On LOW I don't usually get very concerned about colors on cranks. However, Friday and Sat, the UV white with pink striped top shad rap was doing about 6 to 1 in the mornings. Afternoons, the gold foil rap was by far our best color. I'm a bit color blind, but pretty sure that UV rap has pink on the top. Wonder what fish actually see...........not much pink striped stuff swimming around the big lake.

      1/18 Day 4   Day for was exploration Day for the family.  Amanda, the kids, and my mother in law spent a good portion of the hanging out in town.  Shopping and visiting a few of the local attractions.   The father in law and myself decided to pull his boat and go explore a near by lake we have been thinking about.  This would give us s little change of pace.   Fishing actually exceeded our expectations, especially for starting in the early afternoon. Unsure where to start we motored around watching the graph if an area I thought might be good.  after a short while we noticed most marks showed themselves in 18-21 ft on steep breaks.  With the winds blowing we decided to try anchor on top and let the wind drift us over the and bobber fish.  This began to seem unproductive after about 45 mins with no bites, yet we were marking fish.  Out of bordem I decided to raise up 5 ft and cast as far as i could to the top of the break (15ft).  The first 3 casts produced 3 walleyes 15"-18". The bobber never settled before they went down!  The walleyes them slowed but the perch bit really picked up.  Most perch where 9" but a few went as big as 11".   After that spot slowed we hit a few similar spots until we settled on a spot bit deeper but with lots of marks.  This spot would give us pretty non stop action till dark.  With different species rotating through. By the end of the day we caught: 12 walleyes ranging from 11"-21". 5 Pike 20"-30" and one really big one that bit a 10" perch as it was being reeled in by the FIL. Countless Perch, not many under 9"or over 10". And a few dozen bluegills 7.5"-10".   Service here is giving me fits with photos. Hope to post some when i get home this weekend

      Perchy - Insured?  If so, the adjuster will have some recommendations, off the record, on places for repair.

      For all you jigging rap fans out there are you generally jigging those vertically or on the move.   I seen some discussion earlier on the front hook and one thing that I have heard about that hook is a lot of people do take it off in order to prevent snags. I have donated quite a few jigging raps in the past to rocks on the big V I have donated quite a few drinking wraps in the past to rocks on the big v

      Help! I need to get estimates to have the transom repaired/replaced on my 2002 Lund due to an accident and have no idea where to go? I live in Owatonna. Thanks in advance!

      Every store is different as to what they have in stock so if your looking for a specific thing in your size you might have to hit a couple. I went to the Duluth store for my bibs.   Yes a lot of the stuff is still too expensive for going out of business sale prices.
