Wrong, I belive they make them in Michigan. I have the Tomcat-II which is about 12-years old and still shoots like the day I bought it. I was just curious if anybody out there shoots one of these, they use to be the fastest "fps" around 350 or so, or so I thought?

Not 350fps, todays bows don't even reach that speed. I would be surprised if they shot 250fps...

Perch- just so you know.. it is possible to shoot 350 fps with today bows.. its not easy, but it can be done.. I shoot a hoyt ultra tec, 31.5 in draw, at 57 lbs and am at 307fps last time I checked.. At a proshop once... I saw a guy with one of them he-man bowtec bows set at 85 lbs, and was shooting way to light an arrow and he had it go over 400 fps if I remember right.

Deitz,

I can shoot over 350 if I am shooting a tooth pick. But never in a "Hunting Set up".

I would say my string goes 350 fps if it was ever dry firing... I have bow hunted for quite a few years and I agree it is getting real fast but "PERSONALLY" I have never seen anyone shot in a hunting situation 350fps. If I am wrong but I need to see the crono to be corrected... In my own opinion when they give the IBO they are pretty much dry firing the bow. From my experiences you can usually subtract any where from 10-20fps from the speced IBO. shocked.gif

      Used mine for the first time this weekend and I don't think I've ever used a better cutting auger.  Even my wife wanted to take a turn after seeing me use it and she's never used an auger of any type before.  We had maybe 18" of ice (just a guess, didn't measure it ) and I cleared the shavings a couple times with just a quick pull up at it worked slick.

      1.22.18 Sunset Lodge Fishing Report Hello from the NW Angle! Minnesota walleye fishing has been consistent between 18-21 feet. The most effective method is on the dead stick set slightly above the jigging rod. 25-28 feet is also filling buckets with a good walleye and sauger mix, even the occasional jumbo perch. Slender and Tundra spoons have been bringing fish to the house. We have also seen numerous northern pike this week with the largest being over 42.” Canadian walleye fishing remain excellent, especially along points and reefs. Crappie action has been hit or miss. The bite has been better in the morning with anglers limiting out in the first few hours. Fishing deeper than 28 feet is important to get good action. Until next week, Sunset Lodge

      Moved house on Friday night in the dark.  Got holes drilled and let aired out.  Came back out after supper to fish for crappies.  Only small ones but had some action.  Got up early on Saturday and tried chasing tuilibee's and struck out.  Graphed a few but not a bite.  Switched back to the house around 8:30/9.  Buddies were near the house and had one crappie in the bucket.  Five of us fished till 11:30 without a crappie being bigger than 9".  Went back out after lunch fished till supper and nothing.  Came out again after supper got a 14" and 12.5" in 5 minutes and not a fish after that.  Sunday fished from 7 am till 11 nothing bigger than a 8" crappie.  Fished 3 hours Friday, 12 hours Saturday, 4.5 hours Sunday with only 2 crappies over 10".  Pretty sad but heard a ton of poor reports all over the area.

      Fished long point sat/sun morning... It was bad.  Had some friends fishing out of Borderview it was slow over there as well.  Tried all the colors.  Not very aggressive on the ones we did catch.  Had heard fishing was good of course on the days before sat.

      I drive by there 20-30 times per year on my way up north and always wondered what they all said.  Thanks for posting them.  With the warning sign "Danger No Trespass Injury Very Likely" and the barbwire fence around the signs, I would not enter his property if I worked for the US post office or UPS.

      We fished Wednesday afternoon.through Friday out of Zippel. It was not as cloudy as the weatherman predicted. Our best day ended up being Thursday. The two of us in our shack limited out by noon, most were sauger. Hot lure was a 1/8oz glow red shiner Tingler spoon and a plain red hook under a bobber. We were in 26ft
