Peep Sight

Recommended Posts

Rippinlip

I have a peep sight on my string with the rubber hose, the rubber hose broke a few days ago right by the sight, so I just re-attached it and now it seems to have created a slight turn in my peep sight, possibly from the hose being shorter?

I have extra hose, but how do you determine how long of a piece do you need?

huh thats wierd you'd think that it would hold it straight even better because its more taunt. may be your peep slid a little on your string. this past spring my peep and upper serving for the peep were sliding up. that will affect the alignment of you peep, because of the string twist. see if the serving looked like it moved. is your bow shooting higher or lower now? maybe just a hair?

i dont think there is any real science to figuring length, just enough to pull on the peep.

hope you get it figured out!

Been shooting alot and have not had to adjust the sights at all.

Only thing is with the shorter hose and where it is attached, it seems to be pulling the front of it to the right slightly so my window seems smaller.

you shooting a right handed bow? if so maybe the fact that your cable guard is pushed right a little its drawing your peep a bit. also is it a small diameter or large diameter peep?

i could see how with a small dia. you would notice even the slightest cocking of the peep.

anyways i would just replace the hose, but leave it long and trim it until it draws the peep up even. even though it can be a pain in the rump to get that rubber hose on.

I had problems with the peep on my new bow, it would slide up, and the tube would keep coming off, but luckily where i got it used the liquid white out to make a small line on the peep and on the string, now i can tell if it moves, and how far.

What you want is at full draw you want the tube to be taught but up until then you want some slack in the tube so it doesn't pull on the string. The easiest way is to attach it to the peep and tie it off on the cable. Draw the bow and see when it starts to pull the tube tight. Hope that makes sense...

      Ely area lakes were showing 69-71 today.  That was a warmer than expected surface temp but I doubt it goes very deep.  Very little spawn activity compared to past years for this weekend.

      I like the stretch upriver better but can only drift down that area.  I would wear my arms out traveling up stream!   Hopefully do a drift down soon.

      The stearms in the arrowhead are small very small I would recommend a 6 foot or short rod for most streams as you will be pitching your bait out. They are also over grown with brush wading these streams is a challenge. You will be fishing for mostly brook trout above the first posted boundary FYI it’s normally a large water fall but not always. Also the first week of June there will not be much from the lake to the first posted boundary anyways. Remember there special regs below the first posted boundary and the above the first posted boundary.  If you want to use your fly rod I would hit the small trout lakes in the area. A split shot and small chunk of crawler is my go to bait for Brookies. There are a few streams with some browns and rainbows but very few. If you are fly fishing look at Thompson lake by  devilstrack lake it’s catch and release. Mink lake, kimball lake are also good.

      Growing up in South Dakota I did quite a bit of fishing in the black hills for browns and rainbows, most of that fishing was best accomplished with a long pole and just drifting my bait down the stream if you can read the eddies and slacks in the water you should do fine.  Of course I'm assuming they bite the same up north as they do out west.  It was a kick when I went  back out there 2 years ago and on Sunday morning fished the little 6 ft wide stream running behind the campground, all the other campers were amazed that I would pull out a fish about every 20-30 ft no monsters but plenty of little beauties at 7-10 inches. If the water is clean and the fish are there you just gotta find out what they are eating at that time of year.  Hopefully this helps and if I'm wrong some of the guys with Minnesota experience will pipe up.

      I do a bit of fishing from the coon rapids dam on down to 694 and I usually bring 2 rods because I lose at least one lure to the rocks. Bear that in mind and also realize that there are nice smallies, eyes and cats in that stretch of river. I also had over 3 feet of pike eat my stink bait I had out for channel cats. If I didn't have a circle hook on it would have been a nice pic to share. Good luck and hope to hear of some good luck.

      It would take a lot of code to make multiple windows tiling the screen work, would be my guess, and would create few additional sales so isn't worth the expenses.    Just pick up an inexpensive 5 to 7 inch unit and use it for the map.

      You look like the Phantom Fisherman - except the toes.  Or maybe the River Detective  🕵️‍♂️ Gotta love those good runs in short times!

      Awesome Eyeguy! That is a good run of smallies there. I like your spot, that was my favorite fishing stretch for them when I lived in St cloud. Mississippi is such a great smallie fishery. Im blessed to live right next to it too. Now lets get the current to go down some!
