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.

      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

      Boy, some people must just hate their life.

      I recommend considering other lakes.  URL by the 4th is nearly void of walleye.  8 years or so ago, we did a two-family trip and only caught fresh water drum.  Star Trib Article

      I was honored to be part of the "Veterans on Lake Superior" trip again this year. Channel six did a nice story about the Veterans. They were a great group out on the water.   http://www.kbjr6.com/video?clipId=13445592&autostart=true

      Hi Cliff -   Thanks for the update on the hatch.  Is this usually a bust for 2 weeks once the big hatches start?  Will be up the 30th-9th, but still excited since its the first time staying for a full week at the in-laws cabin.  Hoping to provide a few updates on the West Side through the week.

      Thanks for the info.  I searched before and after this thread for any old threads on this topic.  I got nothing before and this thread is the only one that pops up after.  I will keep looking online or stop at one of the big box stores.    Tight lines.

      J-Roy,  I use UL rod and 4 lb a lot when throwing jigs. I have found that the lighter the jig head, the more fish bite and the more you hook. Wind will mess up using light jigs though. When fishing heavy jigs, cranks, top water or spoons, I use heavier line and rod. If fishing weeds need heavy line as well.   Hook ups/bites is much higher with lite jigs. I missed about 50% of hits yesterday using 1/2 oz head. Landed about 90% of hits a few days ago when using 1/8 oz head. Tough to fish 1/8 oz on even 8 lb line so I stick with 4 lb .
