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

      What about Super America at Pike Lake? I think they do the same, with better hours. they refill out of big tank.

      Nice thats what I like to hear, was doing an annual trip to LOW with my buddies, but to be quite honest biggest fish I ever saw in 10 plus trips was 27 inches, I caught 3 bigger than that on the pond last year, and hey I can stay in Wright county where I live and catch 10 inch walleyes.. I don't make it up to that end of the lake ever, usually fish the south end..Bought a wheel house this year, would loke to set it up as base camp and hopefully be able to head up toward that end and do some exploring..And thanks for the input, thinking there is a lot of readers and not many writers on this site nowadays...

      Lake Marion is completely iced over. Hopefully we won't get much snow and be fishing soon.

      Silver lake in New Brighton is iced over. I'm going to count one week before checking thickness on my early ice spots. Could be fishing next Friday if all goes well.
