New Camo Patterns

Recommended Posts

Seabass77

It looks like we will be down to two new camo patterns moving forward. The max 4 and the new shadow grass. Have you seen these new patterns? What do you think will be better for hunting here in Minnesota? I hunt west of the cities in sloughs and smaller lakes. I’m kind of leaning towards the shadow grass but it’s hard to say.

I have the shadow grass and love it. I hunt the same areas that you do. As soon as the cover starts changing color it fits in great.

Love the shadowgrass. Seems to blend in best. Max 4 seems a little dark for the cattails, better in the trees along the water I would think. I'm not sure why they decided to change to the NEW shadowgrass, maybe they thought they could trick some of us into buying all new gear to match...sad thing is, it might work!!

seabass,

I'm bummed that the original Shadowgrass is going by the wayside. The New Shadowgrass is better than the new Breakup, though. For me,it's a little more about the looks on some things so any of the patterns will work. I've just always used Mossy Oak's patterns but the Max 4 is a great pattern, too. I just hate pictures w/ducks, geese, or whatever w/mismatched camo patterns. Don't know why, but it gets to me. Guess it's a way for the camo companies to keep us spending a few bucks!!

So far, it seems that max 4 is everywhere and the new shadow grass is off the map. I haven't seen any waders with this new pattern and very few products in general. To me, the max 4 is a little too dark for wetland areas.

I can't say I like the New ShadowGrass much. I like the old stuff way better. The Max-4 might be OK...if you get a manufacturer that has the stuff colored really light...otherwise I thinks it's too dark. You'd be amazed at how well dark objects stick out in light brown cattails.

As far as what will work...I'd bet that the New ShadowGrass would probably be your best choice. May not look "good" to us, but i'm sure it will hide well.

My favorite of all time was the Delta Marsh pattern from Columbia...man I wish they still made that!!

      The water in Cannon lake is the clearest I've ever seen it. You can see the bottom in 5ft easily. Caught a few perch and a striped bass. Also saw some big bass around the fishing pier by the beach.

      Dang ,,, Another nice day to be out on the water on Fish Lake  ,,, Too bad the fish didn't think it was nice enough to eat what we offered !! Might have to switch bodies of water!!!

      Lake Sylvia is great for bass also lake Francis near Kimball is good too a little smaller but great action! The Mississippi sounds fun I should try it myself.

      Update.  Minnesota American Legion and other volunteers succeeded Thursday, May 17, 2018, in cutting the giant North Long Lake bog into three sections. The bog came to rest on the beach of an American Legion camp. The plan is to move the middle section to open up the beach, then relocate the other two back to the bog’s original position on the lake north of Brainerd, Minn. (Forum News Service)

      The Minnesota record is almost that big, it's over 5lbs and it was caught in the Vermillion river in southern Minnesota back in the late 50's I believe.   "Ace"

      You need to go west or perhaps north of Pine island if you don't want to go that far.   "Ace"   "It's just fishing man"

      I spoke to a buddy who was at Sag over the weekend, and my dad who was fishing a lake a bit north of Leech - none of them had much luck on walleye. I'm chalking it up to a walleye blackout across the northern part of the state. I just need an excuse for the rest of the trips I take! We're talking about coming up again in the fall. I definitely would like to come back for a longer trip, there is so much more of the lake to explore

      It usually pays off finding your own fish.   Nice report.
