Recommended Posts

Anyone use a Killzone laydown blind? You can find them on ebay and a-sales-site for $90 or so--that is a great price wondering what you guys think. I am in the market for blind and wondering if they are worth it. Thanks guys, I can't wait for opener!! It is about time MN DNR does some changes!

Junk.

I can name about 12 blinds I would buy before a killzone.

What makes it junk? I sure it is not the best out there but obviously it is priced pretty cheap.

Carp, or anyone for that matter...What blinds would you rate the highest? I bought a power hunter because it was cheap but I don't really like the bee keeper helmet on the top of it.

I've ran almost every blind on the market for my guide service and if I had to recommend one right now it would be the Goosebuster from Rogers Sporting Goods. I really like them, my customers like them and they are durable. They are $160 right now, and is a great value.

Carp is right more often than not the cheap blinds are junk because things break on them easily. I'd probably go with an Xlandr if I wanted a layoutblind and didn't really care about comfort. They are actually not bad to be in there's just not a ton of room once your in them. The good thing about them is there isnt' really a lot of movable parts. The doors are one piece of fabric so there isn't any hinges or supports to break.

I don't know if admin could make this a sticky because this topic comes up a bunch.

      Well most people use a fish head or two in the trap as bait.  Any type of raw  meat will probably work well. No need to purge them as they are coming out of clean water. Just boil the whole crawdad in salt water or better yet in a Cajun mix! The tails are about the only part worth messing with. Cliff

      I live on Little Cormorant Lake, I believe sometime next week that it will be open.  The lakes out there are changing fast!

      we got a lot snow down in the twin cities than up north and temps are a lot higher than it was in 2013.   I think we will have enough open water to fish the opener.   No one needs to cancel!  I HOPE any way

      what do you use for bait?  I heard you can't use left over fish guts.   do you have to soak them?  sorry not sure what that process is called.

      meerkat, Many people eat the rusties. Very tasty but like walleye wings it takes a lot for a meal! Cliff

      I just got an e-mail from Brent Flatten in the Tower Fisheries Office stating that they hope to get the Dock in by Monday if the river clears of ice. Will set the trap nets on Tuesday and the first net lift will be on Wednesday. They may even collect eggs Wednesday if there are enough ripe females. Very good news! Thanks for your update Brent!

      I would imagine the man made pepin connected to the sippi is open not the actual lake pepin?
