Tungsten Seminar

7 posts in this topic

Hey all,

Got two sessions of seminars at Cabela's this weeked down at Owatonna store. 11am & 3pm this Saturday - March 17.

Come down and check them out, learn more about benefits of tungsten & lead alternatives, how to rig it, and much more. There will also be some good bass fishing info mixed in as well.

I will also be hanging out in the fishing department before, between and after sessions. Hope to see some of you there.

Hey rich; can't make it down. but my tungsten question is. I am looking for a summer time walleye jig made of tungsten, with good strong sharp hooks. Do you know of anything? Can only find small panfish jigs, hoping for 1/16- 5/8 of an ounce. Maybe looking like a northland gumball jig. Hope you can find one down there and let me know make and model hopefully. THanx for and info you might be able to find!

heads look good. strong, ultra sharp hooks? they show the 60 deg.; hoping for a 90 or even 100 deg. for a perfectly horizontal presentation. I think I may have to make a mold, find some tungsten, and find the ultimate strong needle point hook. What retailers have these Ikey's? I am assuming Cabelas.

Good luck finding and melting the tungsten, it has the highest melting temp of all metals 5000-6000 degrees. wink.gif

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources will collect and analyze water samples from about 90 wells in Washington County this spring. The data are being collected for the Washington County Geologic Atlas, an effort involving the Minnesota Geological Survey and the DNR’s Ecological and Water Resources Division.  DNR staff will contact county residents to request permission for well sampling, which involves collecting a water sample and measuring the depth to water in each well. Tests will profile the general chemical characteristics of area groundwater and will also show approximately how long the water has been underground. Geology, location, well depth and well construction will determine the selection of wells for sampling. Owners of sampled wells will receive a report of the laboratory results for the water sample collected from their well. Preserving the long-term quality of the region’s surface water and groundwater requires that policymakers have access to accurate information based on sound scientific principles. A county geologic atlas is a valuable tool for county planners, resource managers and other local government staff when making general planning, land use management and water resource protection decisions. The Minnesota Geological Survey has already published Part A of the atlas, which illustrates details of each county’s geology. In 2019, the DNR will publish the groundwater portion of the atlas (Part B). The Part B reports will include maps and descriptions of the distribution and movement of groundwater, cross sections illustrating groundwater conditions, and the pollution sensitivity of aquifers in the county. The DNR County Geologic Atlas program is funded in part by the Minnesota Environment and Natural Resources Trust Fund as recommended by the Legislative-Citizen Commission on Minnesota Resources. Funding also comes from the Clean Water Fund, which receives 33 percent of the sales tax revenue from the Clean Water, Land and Legacy Amendment approved by voters in November 2008. A full description of this DNR program and status reports for atlas products is available on the DNR website. For information, contact: Jim Berg, DNR hydrogeologist, 651-259-5680, jim.a.berg@state.mn.us; or Paul Putzier, DNR county geologic atlas program supervisor, 651-259-5692, paul.putzier@state.mn.us.
