Hanging Stands Tip

2 posts in this topic

I know this is a little late for this year, but it could be a big help for many of you next year, or for rifle season. If you use screw in tree steps to climb to your stand, cut a small piece of pvc pipe(about the width of your palm). Find a pipe that is just big enough for your step to slide thru it. Put if over the step when you screw it in to prevent tearing up your gloves, or worse, your hands. This tip has saved me many blisters in the past years since I heard it.

Sorry about the timing of this tip, but it just came to mind and I wanted to mention it before I forgot.

      as of 12/5 on the West end many small bays were wide open. Water levels are very high in the local rivers, swamps and I am guessing the lake. It is information that I received from a relative last night.   Be safe   Steve

      No never ever caught a walleye early on the West end. Go east to catch early walleye   We have not had a good slip bobber early season walleye bite in many years. Used to be able to catch them from the docks and rock points every spring. Easy fun fishing. Now we work hard for the fish we catch. West end.   Largemouth bass, sunfish, and bullheads have been caught very regularly on slip bobbers and leeches the last 15 years. I bet they also eat walleye fry. Could possibly be a part of the missing young of the year fish in the recent fall nettings. I did not hear how fall 2016 shook out.

      Nice catch Mitch.  Those are some well fed Northerns.

      We ended up going through Tom Wilson. Pretty good price for a weekend. Now we just need ice.   http://www.leechlakeicefishing.com/fishhouse.html
