Good gunsmith Ely/Tower area

I've got a Mossy slug gun, mounts and a Leupold 3-9 x 40mm muzzy/shotgun scope I'd like mounted and bore sighted so I can finish sighting it in to my preferences.

Any recommendations?

Steve,

Does the gun already have screws for the mounts, because if that's the case I can mount the scope and bore sight it for you. If you need other work Rick Simmons does some gun work.

Dave, it's drilled and tapped, and you can see that it's had mounts on it before. Mossberg mounts with Weaver slots and a set of Weaver rings are coming from Midway USA late this week or early next. Just drop me an e-mail and we can figure it out.

Is Rick Simmons the same Rick Simmons between Ely and Tower who does mechanic work specializing in import cars/trucks/SUVs? He's done great work on our Toyotas.

Yea thats the same Rick.. he's a pretty sharp guy.. had plenty of work done out there on cars and guns.

Sounds like Dave can help you with your project.. gunmithing isn't always cheap!

Well, I've mounted and sighted in a bunch of scopes on rifles, but since shotguns can kick the snot out of a good scope alignment, I want to make sure I'm being taken care of by someone with expertise in the shotgun scope area (which I don't have). I mean, loctite is a good starting point, but . . . . gringringrin

I can reef on those mounts and solder them in for you Steve. I didn't say I was a gun fixer, just a smitthy...heat that bad boy up and melt the screws! I'd talk with Rick see what he has to say otherwise come on in and I'll help you out.

Dave, our 4Runner is ailing, so I've got to talk to Rick about that anyway. I'll also talk to him about the gun job and get back to you. smile

      My parents were up yesterday and Wednesday and they did pretty good. Out in the mud in about 33-34 feet. Lots of boats were trolling but they did well looking for pods of fish and then spot-locking over the top of them and jigging with leeches and frozen shiners.

      i havent been out in for atleast a month out there but check out walleye dan's facebook, he usually posts a report weekley; https://www.visitbrainerd.com/blog/fishing-report-july-16-2018/

      Hi, I’m looking for a fresh report for this weekend. Thanks in advance! Good Fishing!

      Is the water starting to recede on the lakes East of Orr? I heard it was really high on Myrtle. We're coming up to Black Duck in a week or so, just wondering if things are getting back more towards normal.

      I’ve fished sylvan heavily the last two years. Done very well. Many nice pike, bass, walleye, and bluegill. For pike trolling shadraps pretty much any where will get you all the 20”-25” pike you want. Plenty of dence cover all over for bass and that is the usual bass presentations. And for gills in the spring the channel between the two bays was VERY good this past spring went three days in a row and got 2 limits each time ( two angles in the boat) and relesed many many more.  Also the panfish limit on sylvan is 5 per person so be aware of that. I was out there 2 weeks ago and did ok. Again two limits of nice gills and a handful of pike but it took a lot of work to find them. I’m unsure of the walleye fishing out there but have heard it’s a good lake. Im not an expert on sylvan but know a little so hope this helps ya out. Good luck!

      Thanks Cliff. I am coming up for my week of paradise tomorrow as well.

      The last two times on the river have been slow to say the least. Trolled Shipping channels, river channels, and all the flats. Crawler harnesses and crank baits. Anybody having any luck out there?

      If the water is that clear and you can see 17-20 feet down, the fish will be very spooky.  And if the sun is out, they will be looking for relief from the sun in the form of shade.  Night time might actually be a better option.

      Not terrible.  But they can be merciless, I will tell you.
