I was just wondering if any of you have tried these things. I found them for 5 bucks apiece at fleet farm and got three.

Just tried 2 on different hunts. The sales guy kinda grined and said"have you used these?" I said no why do you ask. he says they spray for about 15 seconds and it did not work for him. I had the same results, I thought the 15 seconds was a joke but it was not. Smells like any thing else on the market and lasts,,,,well you know.

If the wind is not blowing to much they might have some linguring sent but I think it just blows away along with my $32.(I bought 4) But hey I luv to try new stuff and am a sucker. I still have 2 left so there is still hope!!

cyber, you must have been watching the mens channel smile.gif I also noticed on away outdoors this new scent spray. It was like the party foam you spray for new years. It looked cool because you can see where it's applied. Wonder if it can be purchased locally..

It's called scent web and the website says that gander is a distributor. might have to check out gander in Blaine.

So how did the buck bombs work out guys. Hopefully well. I'll let you know how they work for me in a couple of weeks. I hunt the 3b season and it doesn't start until the 18th. frown.gif

they work pretty good opening morning i squirted a little in the air and less than five min. later had a fork sniffing around my stand down wind. i think they put out a stronger scent than any scent wick can. but it does disipate faster.

Which buck bomb did you use Dom. Buck, young buck, doe P, or Doe Eus.

i used both dom. buck and doe eus. (at seprate times) that fork came into the doe eus. i don't use them like the directions say and let the whole can spray at once. i just give it 3 or 4 one second squirts every hour, makes the can last a little longer. i just bought two more of the doe eus. that is the down side though they run out quick barely making it through one day, but i think they work better because of how strong they smell.

    • Walleye #1
        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

      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
