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 thumb nail method is tough for those that chew em!   I don't but know people who do.   I haven't used an official split ring pliers but a couple precision sizes have worked well.  This is a cheap set I like to have around.

      I use forage minnows and other types of jigging spoons also. Usually tipped with minnow head or waxies.

      Out of curiosity what do you all think this cost them?  Not including the truck damage.

      i'm thinking of heading up and trying for some tulibees for the smoker- anyone been catching them?      how are the roads out to the flats?  i was thinking of coming on from the east side of the lake- maybe Hunters.

      Decided to try trout fishing through the ice for the first time and it was awesome. We were setup in 80ft of water and were catching them 20 ft down jigging a silver kastmaster spoon. It was pretty cool to see how the fish acted with the underwater camera. They were like sharks when they came in. We had probably 30 or more trout come in and check out the bait but only few takers.  Was a lot of fun. Definitly going to explore more trout lakes. Doesn't get much better then fishing on lakes with no houses on them!    Here is a video of the trip with underwater video of the strikes:  https://youtu.be/6JuJhq-50X4
