Pump or Auto?

Recommended Posts

HOT SPOT

For those who say autos suck:

A few years back a few buddys and I got into a couple flooded fields for some mallard hunting. To make a long story short. 6 guys covered in mud from head to toes pounding the mallars. After about a hr of hunting I noticed that a buddy and I were the only two people in the group that were even able to shoot once. Everyboys guns were covered top to bottom with tick nasty mud. My buddys 870 was to the point where he could not even move the pump. The only two guns that would function were 2 SBE that got beat to $*** compaired to my and the other guns

it made me a believer and I traded my old gun for a new SBE

Auto all the way

You guys swimming in mud or what. After an hour everyones gun was covered, I'd sacrifice being hidden to take better care of my heater. Auto's rock.

I agree, lots of times I have been in a muddy situation and never had to worry about my gun seizing on me. whistle

ya we makes things harder than what they should be sometimes. But it was by far the worst field I have ever hunted. We walked probally 1/8 mile in ankle mude no water so that stick nasty stuff and then a 1/4 mile of knee high mud just get to the area we hunted.

It was one of those days that nuthing went right and we made it harder than needed but well worth it.

Ill look for pics it give you guys a idea how muddy it was

Best hunt I have ever been on. Thousands and thousands of birds decoyed in perfect couldnt ask for birds to come in better. Duck and geese limit.

Nicely done Hot Spot, I used to have those days in the 80's and early 90's, having been down that road before it is hard to go out because it's been 20 years ago already.

      Well, the highway 70 access won me over yesterday, only to break my heart today. I should have seen the warning signs at the start of the day. Get to the launch, get everything ready, about to put boat in the water...forgot the life jackets! 😫 I drove to the Walmart in Pine City and bought 2 life jackets! Finally got on the water. Was a nice boat ride upstream. Was hoping maybe to make it all the way up to the mouth of the Snake River. Probably made it halfway before it got too shallow. I most likely could have made it through had I had more ambition, but we needed to start fishing. Hooked into a few fish right away, but lost them. I’m pretty sure one was a small muskie. Ended up drifting all the way back to boat launch, and only caught 2 fish! And both were just a couple hundred yards up from the launch! Was a smallie and a little walleye. So yes, slow day indeed. Looks like a nice trail system at the access though. Might have to plan a hike there this summer.

      I am going up to camp in the middle of June.  Anybody have any suggestions about baits and depths etc. for Walleyes and Bass?

      Going to lake vermillion for the first time. June 13. Staying near Arrow Head Point, Isle of Pines. Only have a small boat with 15 HP so looking for some tips for where to go for big pike that is reasonably close given my boat. I do not mind a drive, but I know how conditions can get on big water.  I also plan to go to Trout Lake (reason for bringing the small boat) If anyone has tips on Trout Lake for Pike.  Thanks and #tightlines!

      Heading up to chain for a couple weeks.  Need some general info on the panfish bite.  They still shallow?  Got a couple grandkids coming up and any info sent on the panfish action will be appreciated.  Thanks   Ray guy

      Maybe see if you slide the winch back on the tongue an inch or two. The roller needs to contact the boat to keep it from bouncing. Should check to make sure the rear bunk rollers line up with the rear transom for stability.

      Every rig we've owned the roller is above the eye & snug to the boat when it's loaded.

      I looked at my rig yesterday . It is a matched boat/trailer package from Lund . My roller is above the eye but snug onto the bow , probably an inch maybe more, higher than yours.
