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.

      Out Saturday afternoon doing some sight fishing with my camera on one of Chisago County lakes. Water was a bit dirty and with 26 inches of ice camera clarity was a bit lacking. Did get some nice video of the afternoon. Battery augers failed after a couple of holes so went with the Eskimo gas. Lots of fish above the weeds in 10 FOW.  EazyCam site fishingHB.mp4

      Weather forecast looks to be consistent starting Wednesday with average temps in the  mid 20's. Consistency typically good.  Right now anglers are working fish hard and putting fish in the pail. Electronics are playing a huge roll as some walleyes suspended as far as 10 feet below the ice. Most resorts are out in 31' with some in a touch shallower. More saugers in deep mud with walleyes shallower. Reefs to the west also productive with a few perch being pulled in as well. Rattle and flutter action spoons doing well. Gold, pink, and other glow colors best.  Pike already active in shallow water.  Auger extension needed if fishing on your own with 3+ feet of ice in most areas.  Snowmobilers stay on marked trail, big ice chunks off of trail. Ice houses allowed to be left on lake through March 31st, walleyes open through April 14, pike all year.   Rainy River pushing out some bigger walleyes in the morning/evening with an occasional sturgeon.  Local fish houses along the snowmobile trail from Wheeler's Point to Baudette Bay.  Morning, evening bite most effective.   The NW Angle continues to put nice fish in the bucket. Walleyes and saugers in good numbers.  20-24' early and late, 26-30' during day.  In Ontario waters, crappies in deeper holes of 28-32' on light tackle set ups. Mortality rate is high for released crappies in 25' or deeper, catch fish and move on.  Walleyes all over!  Snowmobile trails on and around the lake are marked and groomed.

      Hi all hope to make it this Saturday. Depending on the snow coming we should be able to drive on correct?

      This past weekend, only two were caught by our group of three fishermen and they were small, in the 10" range.

      Why not go out of Swift?  I nothing about the Warroad access, sorry.

      OK - we made it back!!!  Every trip is different with it's own potential perils.   I finally got into my house on Friday around 11am.  My guests were rookies, so i spent time with each of them, getting setup, heaters started, Vexilars set, houses banked, lines prep'd and set, bait, etc...  The bite was somewhat slow and many small ones.  The day got better 3 to 430pm.  Ended up with 6 nice eyes (19, 18x3, 17x2), 13 jumbos (most ever for a day), 12 small sauger which we ate for dinner.   On Saturday we headed up to the south shore of the Angle, longer ride, so again did not get started too early.  Ended up with our 6 eyes for our limit, these ranged from 15 to 16 inches and a 4-pack of sauger.  Again the bite seemed to pickup at 3 or so and was done by 430pm.   Ice as 3 foot or so.  Snow depth varied a lot, depending on the condition of the ice.  Smooth areas were blown off to crusty 6 inches or so.  Rough ice surely held a lot of snow.   The drive back on Sunday was somewhat tough from Baudette to Emily, winter storm warning.  Slow go, low visibility, and icy roads, sometimes down to 15 mph.   Next scheduled trip is with my wife, son, and three of his Gopher swim teammates for spring break in three weeks.

      Those were caught from a shallow lake (17’) in 9 feet of water at the bottom of the first shoreline break. I was using a UV buckshot and minnow head since the water was murky. The crappie is still swimming the walleye not so much. I didn’t get the exact location. Sorry

      Hello from the NW Angle!

      Minnesota fishing has been most productive in 20-24 feet of water.  Guests are bringing home their limits of Walleye and Sauger with the occasional Perch and Northern mixed in. Fish have been most active early and late in the day and the bite has been terrific. The use of electronics continues to be very beneficial with fish taking jigging spoons, jigg’n raps or rattle baits.  Snowmobile ttrails on the Minnesota side continue to be maintained and are in great shape. We are still making ice, with most spots at over 30 inches. 

      North and East of us in Canada, big Crappies are coming in on light tackle setups out of 30 feet. If you are looking for walleye, they are everywhere!

      Until next week, 

      Sunset Lodge

      On the Bayfield side of the bay, the target depth is typically 10 to 40 ft. The basswood island area is where they go after lakers. There’s a plowed road that goes out there. As of last week the ice was about 20 inches in that area, might be thicker now. Check out the Bayfield webcam, you can see what kind of activity is going on.

      Wanderer, stop in at the River Rock bait shop in Ashland and they will get you pointed in the right direction.  They are always pretty cool about that.  Fishing near Ashland off of 2nd landing can be good.  Don't need nothing more than regular walleye gear, and some tip-ups and really there is no rhyme or reason where a guy should set up shop. Its a pretty wide open water and the fish that live there are always on the move. For us, most often, the sit and wait pays off.  It has been slower as of late, but still some fish..  Good luck, JH
