Final Approach Eliminator, {very urgant}

I really need some input on this. I saw this FA Eliminator at Gander Mountain for $130. I was gonna ask if i should buy it or save my money and wait for a higher quality blind like the Avery blinds.

{this is urgant 'cause there is only 2 weeks left to the season!}

thanks, smile.gif

I really like the Avery finisher, but you have to sit/lay in them both and see which fits you best. I haven't seen the quality of the Eliminator, but I do know that FA makes a good blind.

Get in there and buy it. I just bought one last weekend. According to the sales guy, Avery and Final Approach blinds are like Ford and Chevy. Both very nice blinds.

$130 is a great deal. I just sold my finisher and bought an x-lander. The only thing that I didn't like about the eliminator when I looked at it was that it didn't fold up, so it wouldn't fit inside my Blazer. Other than that they seem like a very comfortable and well built blind.

Yeah we have a Gander Mtn. here in Bemidji but it shucks this year, not alot waterfowl stuff put out like last year mad.gif, not alot blinds to choose from, I picked up a Khaki Finisher at Cableas last weekend.

Quackaddict9,

Hey, man go for it!! If you can get one now, their sale only lasts like a few more days. It's the best deal i've seen on a FA in years. If and when you're down here, they have Foiles calls, buck gardner, and echo and pretty much every call in the front of the store on sale. FA flocked head goose decoys are on sale, too. hope you can fins somethin' you like. Good luck!! smile.gifcool.gif.

{Better get there before I do grin.gif ;lol}

I also saw this deal and was very impressed at a first glance. I did a little research on it and here's what I came up with. This blind is not something that Final Approach normally makes. It is specific only to Gander Mtn. stores for whatever reason. I e-mailed the people at Final Approach and they got back to me today. Here is the e-mail:

It is just like the Sports Utility Blind except it folds into a backpack, it

does not have a full frame, it only has the headrest frame in it, it has the

stubble straps. This is a special make for Gander Mountain only. That is why

you do not see it anywhere else. If you have any further questions please

let me know.

Thank you

I don't know what type of hunting you do, but if you pack in, this might be a good option. It does not have the normal support bars that most of the top dollar blinds do and I heard that at times the stubble does not stay in it as well as say the legacy or pro hunter due to the lack of support and the added movement of the blind material (I've heard that it is similar to laying in a sleeping bag). I hunt out of an Avery Finisher and even though i have not hunted out of the blind you are talking about, I would say go with something of higher quality like the Avery Finisher.

thanks for all the tips guys.

but, i just got a Wildfowler layout blind. i had my sights set on the elimanator, but my dad took me to a guy who had these for about $150 a piece and my brother and i each got one. I really like this one, it is comfy and there is slots an dstuff to put grass and a hole for flagging. It sits a little higher than the FA, but overall it is a good quality blind.

thanks alot though guys for the input and tips, i appreciate that cool.gif.

      Was out the last 2 days. Saw some Crappies caught in warmer bays. Not much action outside the mouths of bays today. Hoping it picks up this week. Trying to learn this lake over the summer.

      The creek is still very high and dirty. Prespawn smallies don't seem to mind😁 Morning bite has been very consistent this last week.

      Any new reports from this past weekend?  Heading up Thursday for a long Memorial Day weekend. Looking for a place to start. Going out of Bayview RV resort. First year fishing vermilion.

      Looks like your neighbors old pontoon is in some trouble, only a couple inches of the motor is above the water.

      Nice fish, but sad for the property owners.

      On the south end...  A great week of walleye fishing with good numbers of fish and some big walleyes and pike caught as well. Most anglers are finding walleyes vertical jigging.  A jig and emerald shiner or fathead did the trick.  With the naturally "stained" waters of LOW, gold, glow, pink, orange, chartreuse or a combo of these colors works well. Some anglers catching good numbers of walleyes trolling crankbaits over shallow sand, 5 - 12' of water.  Regardless of what technique, a lot of good fish on shallow sand this week. Walleyes are being caught in 3 - 31 feet of water.  Some walleyes are still spawning while others are well past that point.  Different things are happening depending upon what part of the lake, bay or river you are fishing.  A mixed bag for walleye anglers including walleyes, sauger, pike, perch, and sturgeon.   On the Rainy River...   The river has a lot of current with the dam wide open and high water levels.    Typical spots in the main channel are still tough to fish due to high current.  Finding current breaks adjacent to shorelines or the mouth of bays has been productive for those fishing the river.  Once you find fish, there are normally good numbers. Sturgeon fishing is closed until July 1st.  July 1 - Sep 30 is a sturgeon keep season with one fish per calendar year 45" - 50" or over 75". Up at the NW Angle...  A great jig continues.  Fish are being found in various depths from 5' -  30'.  Shoreline structure, neckdown areas and on some shallow flats are producing fish. Again, a jig and minnow was by far the most common method vertically jigged below the boat.  Trolling crankbaits over 5' - 12' over shallow flats or sand has been productive. Various ways to travel to the Angle. 1.  Drive through Canada to the Angle  (must be vaccinated, no covid test required) 2.  LOW Passenger Service (charter boat service across the lake avoiding customs)  3.  Lake Country Air.(fly from various Midwest locations to LOW and NW Angle) 4.  Take your own boat.  (Safety first, this is a 40 mile ride over big water)

      We will be up for our yearly trip June 4-11.  Just seeing if it's the usual baits so far fishing.  Anyone bobber fishing?  Lindy rig?  I'm assuming the water is told cold at this point for Leeches. Thank fellas.

      I spent last week on Kabetogama and the conditions are hard to believe. Water keeps rising. The forecast was for another foot rise. We stay at Northern Lights Resort and they went over and above for the guests. Built bridges to the floating docks! Fishing was amazing! Hard to catch small enough fish to keep! People up there are battling to protect and save what they can.

      I'm not getting any good reports on the lake conditions there. Friends on Ash River have water in their cabin. Hope all losses are at a minimum.🙏
