Beneli in general best guns out there, and for pumps id say the best ones are the super nova and the 870

I have 2 870 great reliable guns, also have a browning bps good gun. I am thinking of buying the super, but still looking at the 887 nitro mag. what r ur guys thoughts and opinions. I am leaning towards the supernova.

I'm a diehard 870 man, but I hunt with guys who use Novas. In all honesty, it comes down to person perference because they are both darn tough and reliable guns. Shoulder a couple and see which one fits you best. After that, either will be a good purchase in the long run.

I owned a supernova for 2 yrs, it was a lemon. I know pleny of people that shoot them and like them, mine on the other hand was junk. Constantly jammed. Probably an isolated insident, but, I won't buy another.

Buy the Benelli!!!!! Ive had mine for 6 yrs and it has been flawless. Im a remington person thru and thru but When it comes To Whackin geese the nova is simply the best. Between 3 of us that hunt with them, we have put them all thru the paces with no problems. From Layin on them in warm, muddy winter wheat fields in September, thru Breakin ice with them in January, they have performed excellent. My buddy actually used his for a club once and I paddle the canoe back to shore with mine cause somebody whistle forgot to charge the battery for the trollin motor..

Cant go wrong with the super nova..

nope 2 of my buddies got lemons, buddy and i were jump floating a stream and kicked up a woody, he was in the front so jumped up popped a shot and the shell wrapped itself around the action, may be the shell, may not, but that gun always jammed before that accident. Second one, the barrel came bent but the factory made it right. Im not bashing benelli since i own a SBEII and freakin LOVE it, but it seems like u get a good one its GREAT, but there is a chance to get a lemon.

Had the Nova for 2 seasons and although I liked the durability of the gun and the function, I just never could get comfortable with it. I am a shorter person and I found the grip to be too big for my smaller hands and the forestock to be too long for my short arms. The gun just wouldn't pull up nice for me. I am trying a 887 Nitro Mag this year, the gun feels better to me but I can definitly tell the difference in the quality of the gun.

      Opener and the week after were good.  Not the numbers we normally get but better quality in the East End.  Not surprised on the weights for the Auto City a.  Usually for us we only catch a few slot fish but we averaged 3 a day for 10 days.  2 overs, biggest 27 inches.     Our best luck was 12-16 feet for quality.  When we went deeper we caught more but smaller.  Bass were really starting to heat up.  For me little earlier than normal.  Found some nice Bluegills the day we went after some panfish.  Dock fishing was as many as we wanted per usual.

      We will be up on June 8th for the week. It will be our 13th year in a row staying on the lake.  I hope the walleye are hitting the bobbers by the time that we get there.

      Those are some fine specimens. Great job

      I'm quite shocked to hear that a walleye tournament is still doing a live weigh in.  Virtually every event these days around here is doing a catch, photo, and release format.   Regardless, nice work.  Congrats.

      On the south end...   A great week of fishing with walleyes and saugers caught in good numbers.   The go-to presentation, again, was a jig and frozen emerald shiner.  Emerald shiners are a staple in LOW and walleyes love them.  Other minnows worked also, but emerald shiners are a favorite of anglers for good reason.   The Lighthouse Gap area, Morris Point Gap and just in front of Pine Island held nice fish in 17 - 21' of water.  Various schools of walleyes and saugers across the south shore.     A quarter ounce jig in gold, glow white, pink, orange, chartreuse, or a combo of these colors tipped with a minnow worked well again.   Some big pike and jumbo perch being caught by walleye anglers. On the Rainy River...  Some nice walleyes were caught on the river this weekend, although most anglers normally head to the lake.  12 - 15' of water is holding some nice fish.   Sturgeon fishing on the Rainy River is closed until the keep season starts up again July 1st. Up at the NW Angle...  Some nice walleyes being caught along with a mixed bag.  12 - 25 feet of water.  Points, neck down areas and bays with warming water were holding good fish this week.    The go-to presentation was a jig and minnow as on the south shore.  A mixed bag as is common around the Angle.

      Nice work!   Here's two words you hardly ever hear anyone say anymore.  "grateful and humbled"

      RLG, thanks for the shout-out!     Jeff and I are still trying to wrap our heads around what happened this past weekend.  We are humbled and full of gratitude  for having won 'The Classic' for a second time.     We practiced through all the rain on Thurs and the wind on Friday and found six different spots holding big fish.  Fishing was good on both days with several 'overs' in our catch...but would it hold up for another day?   We didn't know.     On tourney day, we made a long run to our first spot where I lucked out on a 26.5"er on my second cast.  Jeff followed up with a thick 27" er a few minutes later, which turned out to be the big fish for the event at 7.26lbs.  We finished out our limit and weighed-in at 10:30 am for the welfare of the fish in our livewell.    There were some big weights in this event which would have won in most other years, but - for whatever reason - this was our day.  Everything just went our way.  Again, we are just super grateful and humbled by this success.  We also want to congratulate all the other anglers who did well and give a big 'thank you' to the tournament organizers who put on such a great event!

      I had a good start to the season on opener. Fishing was slow but consistent. I had four eaters in the box by lunch dragging perch raps. Crappies were biting. I haven't been up since so don't know how things have changed since then, but I'm sure the walleye continue to migrate out into the main basins.

      Let’s start this by congratulating Brianf and son for winning their second City Autoglass Walleye Classic last weekend. These guys know how to fish.  We just got to the lake for the season. Chores are almost done and I’m ready to fish.  red(new dog is more yellow)labguy

      I tried starting a 2024 Lake Vermilion Fishing Report topic but it doesn't show up on this board.   Maybe somebody else knows how to do it?
