      Fishing Report Clubs - LIMITED MEMBERSHIP - Join Today - FREE   01/24/2018

      Fishing Minnesota had added a new menu item (see above) called Fishing Report Clubs. It's a way to keep the really good fishing reports coming and being shared only with those who also provide detailed fishing reports. We will only approve new members who request to join if they have already posted a recent fishing report in the area forum, associated with the Fishing Report Club area  you want to join. We are going to limit the number of regular memberships, in the Fishing Report Clubs, to the top 20  members in each Club, to those with the best frequency and quality fishing reports provided in the club and less so in the regular fishing report forum open to all members. The higher quality fishing report reserved for the club of course. If  you want fishing reports  around your area, I would Join Now, some of the clubs are starting to fill fast. Use the Fishing Reports Club link in the Menu above (after you've posted a fishing report in the regular area forum) and request to Join.

Under Armor??

Question

fishing4fun

I'm looking for some imput Under Armor. I've been told it's not a good source of heat when you are just going to sit around. But if you are moving it is awesome. Have any of you fellow fishermen had this problem? I'm looking at going and buying a set.

Thanks

I had the cold eather stuff and didnt think it was any better than some of the other under wear I have used. It way more expensive as well. I didnt think it was worth the extra cash at all. I also dont like how tight it fits.

I absolutely love the stuff. I have 3 mock T long sleeve shirts. One strictly for Bow Hunting, One for general hunting and one for all purpose. Two pair of bottoms and a couple of pairs of gloves. I like the tight fit as it seems to stay tucked in very nicely and doesn't add any bulk.

you are better off going with either Duofold or the Gander version GSX, they are the same stuff but they cost a fraction of what under armor costs.

last year i bought a set of cold gear from the cabelas tent sale, i paid less than what it would cost for a cold gear camo mock T. I just got plain green since i always wear it under clothes, color didn't matter. i like the tight fit, no bulk, wicks water away when getting sweaty.

Save your money. I think the stuff is way over rated. I also do not like the tight fit, and I actually felt cold as soon as I put them on. My better half had the same opinion.

They went back where they came from and we bought the Duo Folds from Gander and could not be happier. (at half the price)

I would say you need to try it out. My buddy and sister love them... I personally hate them. I like my other kinds or long under wear much much better. Guess it's all personal choice

I didn't like the stuff at all. It's for wicking, but what I use, I think is the ultimate in warmth and wicking, comfort and non weight are fleece mock turtlenecks. I'm amazed with my less layers and more comfort when I start my layers with a fleece mock turleneck. I never get cold.

I wear the cheaper Cabelas version and really like the stuff. I wear it as it is intended, part of a layer system. It keeps you dry and I like the tight fit, it doesn't ball up in your armpits or elbows.

I agree with the layers. I got a set of the black tight Duofold base layer as a gift and hated it at first as I just wore it alone under the rest of my clothing. No warmth and wind blocking by itself. It is not designed for warmth, though, but for wicking. So I put a second layer of Cheapo long underwear over it and then dressed normal (if not lighter than normal). After roofing my Dad's garage and not sweating or feeling cold on a 20 deg cloudy windy day, I was sold on it as a base layer. Now that combo is my go-to. Haven't tried the U.A. gear, I'd rather spend that elsewhere.

On the other hand, I would have loved to bought some of that stock early! wink.gif It is EVERYWHERE and EXPENSIVE.

I use the Heat gear and love it. My brother in Law swore by it in Kuwait and I gave it a shot and it works great. grin.gif

I ran Track and crosscountry in high school last yr and we originally used underarmour as a wicking layer for colder days. Granted it isnt made for warmth alone but by wicking your sweat away it keeps heat as a by product. Absoulutely love the stuff as again mentioned part of a layering system. I bought a generic set this spring and Im lookign forward to field testing while bowhunting next fall.

I have found it great for its intended purpose, as a base layer for wicking perspiration. Really eliminates that wet clammy feeling against your skin. It is overpriced, shop off season; buy heat gear in winter, cold gear in summer for the best deals.

      The tip-up was in slightly shallower water but the difference was probably about two feet.  Sounds like Devil's Lake is the good bet but that's quite a jaunt.  I have heard that water clarity is a big issue out west and that would really stink if you get somewhere and can't see.  Might soak some suckers on Mille Lacs since it looks like the pike angling season is extended again this year.  Good luck this weekend!

      Decoys sure have come along ways from the foam things my grandpa used. I bought some Avian X decoys and retired grandpa’s foam things. I have noticed I am getting more birds into range with the better decoys.

      Lot of ice on the shore, only place to fish as of Thursday is two harbors breakwall

      I found a great bait selection at the Baxter Fleet Farm today.  3 sizes of suckers, multiple sizes of golden shiners, and of course fat heads and crappies. The first bait shop I tried only had fat heads and crappies.

      There was a couple mixed in the bucket. They were big shiners 5 to 6 inch range. The shiners would be down for 6 hours or so each time and we never waited that long for a sucker to be taken. Just our experience. If a guy could have both I say try and see.
    • Wanderer
      Call ahead for shiners.  I’ve heard there aren’t any left in the state.  At Mille Lacs 2 weeks ago I asked for some and the guy looked at me like I was stupid. Of course I blame that on the question... 
    • Jplante
      Fowldreams, did you have shiners? Just curious if preferred them over shiners, or thats just what you had.
