There are a lot of great goose calls that are under $100. Most major call makers have custom calls that you can order in Delrin or wood that have the same guts as the acrylics, but have half the price. I have calls all the way up to $150, but the ones I have on my lanyard every hunt are all under $75.00. There are a lot of very good ones, but the customer service is what seperates the good from the best.

My top three goose calls under $100 would be:

1) Delrin Winglock Short Reed- Great call that is very easy to operate. Rick Perry is the owner and call maker and he will tune to your liking and if that doesn't work for you send it back in and he will retune it. It sells for $59.99 off of his website.

2) GK Calls Giant Slayer- It is a great sounding short reed that is made out of acetal, which is a material very similar to delrin. You can drive over it with your truck and not do any damage to it at all. It sells for $79.99 off of the GK site-but you also get a free copy of Shawn Stahl's honker talk with it(the best short reed instructional video I have seen-$19.99 value)Bob Alfieri is the owner and also has great customer service. I sent my call back to him to tune it real deep and he had it back to me in 3 days for no charge at all.

3. Black Dymondwood Hayes Call. Bob Hayes is another top notch customer service guy. If you have any trouble with his calls he will either fix it himself or talk you through it. I tried to re-tune mine and got it all screwed up, I emailed him and he gave me some instructions and they were good enough for me to re-tune it and actually learn how to tune all of my calls. He has a website with a lot of great calls for very good prices. Wood, Delrin, or Acrylic are all well under $100.

Just like any musical instrument, you'll get what you pay for. I wouldn't rule out a pricey call, but then again, don't buy just any hi-end call. A cheaper call usually sounds great when you first get it, but humidity, dryness, and other factors will make that call sound different everytime you take it out.

Customer service does also make or break your call.

In my opinion, and I've tried pretty much every hi-end call out there, THERE IS NOTHING THAT COMES CLOSE TO THE GROUNDS PRO SUPER MAG.

Tim is as nice as they come. Email him, [email protected]

He'll typically give you a call and blow some calls for you. Great guy

Cant go wrong with a poly carb super mag or zink. I have both calls in the acrylic. Heartland custom calls makes a great delrin call for $30 as well

      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.

      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!

      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.
