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.

      I'll be out this wknd and got 3 spots to try out so still debating which one will be the ticket. The past couple weeks I've been getting some while crappie fishing.  Going to be shore fishing so FYI the water level is pretty high right now with all the rain from few weeks ago. A wader would be handy if you have one.  Good luck n be safe out there.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.

      yepper, almost 30 between the 2 of us in the slack water next to fast water. kinda hard to fish in that fast water when it's moving so fast...

      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.
