My bow finally showed up...

Recommended Posts

... but I'm out of town for work! I'm looking forward to running some arrows through it. Apparently they wouldn't make it in the color-pattern I ordered it in so instead of optifade forest limbs and a black riser it showed up as all black. Oh well... I should get my hand on it in a couple days.

I'm sure after you fire a few arrows through that new rig, you won't give a snit what color it is.

My rest should ship next week and hopefully I'll have it sometime later next week. I've got it set at 69 lbs and the draw cycle is great! It's also quiet, and that's without a stabilizer on it. Unfortunately I can't fix the drawlength (1/2" too short) because our press at the archery club won't fit the rounded limbs on this bow. I'll have to take it in to Scheels and get it fixed. So far, all signs point to me liking the bow though!

Nice looking bow. Always exciting to get a new rig. Good luck with it this fall.

I'm so glad you're not keeping that Whisker Biscuit Rest on that sexy thang. (not that there's anything wrong with that whistlegrin)

LOL- I promise I won't keep it on there! I'm getting a new Trophy Taker drop away to put on there- should ship next week! Once I have that, a small faceplate that they forgot to send with the sight (not necessary to shoot), a wrist strap, and make a decision about a stabilizer (to use one or not), I'll be all set.

I've already run enough arrows through it to know it's a shooter!

Congrat's Scoot and welcome to the Darkside looks like they combined the best out of the last four bows they made.

How's the torque with the new style calbe guard,dose she like too sit square in the hand or top limb leaning towards the right at full draw?

Sniper- I've been to the dark side twice before, so it's not new to me. I kinda like it there... wink

Torque has been a non-issue to me so far.

Rockin' Rod, isn't it past your bedtime? smile

I'm going with "handsome" on this one, because it's a guy! I've had enough with female bows- I find them finicky, tempermental, and that they often don't perform like I want them to! laugh

I haven't settled on a name just yet. The bow is an Insanity, so I was thinking of going down that road. I considered "Manson" or even further down that path and "Helter Skelter", but I don't want my bow to be named after a suicidal maniac who killed innocent people. "Dahmer" or "Gacy" aren't acceptable either- pedaphiles who killed kids aren't worth naming anything after. Any suggestions for a nice, but pretty well known, crazy person?

LOL- I had the exact same thought! Even though I like Ol' Teddy in a lot of ways, I won't name my bow after him. I need a more sane crazy person!!! LOL

      Hi, I’m looking for a fresh report for this weekend. Thanks in advance! Good Fishing!
    • roony
      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.
    • tacklejunkie
      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?
    • gimruis
      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.
    • gimruis
      Not terrible.  But they can be merciless, I will tell you.
    • Mike89
      below the darn is a park there too if I remember right, Plus Garden City has a park by the river too I think..
    • Rick
      Good fishing in the Blue Earth river too. Also, a short drive to Rapidan can be productive.

      Welcome to the site @eg_gophers2124 I have never even seen the lake but these screen shots might help. Navionics Judging by the Lake Finder report, it’s a super clear lake; 17-20 foot clarity but with plenty of weeds. A couple shots of the weed report. Starting from scratch, I would head to the southwest area.  The southern basin has better looking structure too. You might do well simply working edges of the emergent weeds with spinnerbaits in low light and weedless frogs or spoons up in the weeds when it gets to be mid day.  Crawler under a slip bobber on the weed edges could do well also. It’s purely guessing on my part.  Hopefully someone with experience on the lake will chime in. Good luck!
