Hey Cliffy- Sorry I haven't replied. No I still haven't bit the bullet yet. But I will. just need to make sure the XT is what I want. I thought you were gung-ho on that ripcord rest. What happened? simplier the better? Might be a while for me. I am picking up my gun safe on the 11th that kinda took a chunk. What site did you go with? Have you seen that magnetic arrow rest yet? It's called the air-rest. I guess it's the hottest thing at the archery shows in the southwest. check out the web site air-rest.com and tell me what you think. pretty spendy and you need a magnetic insert in your arrow. I am looking at the muzzy zero effect but also may go with the whisker since my shots will be well under 30yds. say hi to the . later tongue.gif

I shot both the WB and the Rip Cord on my XT before leaving the store. I stuck with the WB because it just seemed to be the better option for me and the style and space that I will be hunting. There was not much of a speed difference between the two..just a few FPS. I might try a drop away style later on down the road. I really like the Rip Cord and the Muzzy ZE. I have seen the rest you are talking about....a lot of talk about it on ArcheryTalk and other archery sites. I will wait and see how others review it before giving my 2 cents worth.

For my site, I went with a Cobra three pin. I like it a lot..very bright! I set up a little range in my basement...20 yards..and have pretty much shredded my yellow jacket target....shooting muzzy broad heads is nice..but it just eats up the target. I have been shooting every day...I try to get about 25-50+ shots down range per day. I tried shooting field points into the yellow jacket...but they are almost impossible to pull out.

Talk to you later.


PS: The red-head says hello...pass the same along to your better half.

      The mayflies are just starting in Frazier Bay.  We could see a few in the boat the last couple of days.  Then started seeing big trails on water yesterday and today.  I just got done cleaning 3 walleyes and they were full of them.

      Have the Mayflies started.  We are coming up end of July and trying to see what the time line for them are this year.  Not sure how the late ice out would effect the hatch.  Thanks in advanced.

      67 degrees today in big bay. No fish today for me.

      Just an update, walleye are still hanging on the week edges.  I caught mine in 8-10FOW again.  Lost one that was 4-5lbs.  Best part, I have yet to use livebait this open water season.  Basically the same technique as last week.     Only issue is finding the weeds that hold the fish.  Same as last week, just looking on SI, finding small transitions between weed edge, soft/hard bottom ect.     Once you find them, then you can spot lock/talon down and cast at them.     And, as before all fish were released.

      Saturday and Sunday were tough days on the water, NW winds post cold front. Got better yesterday and today. Took a retired friend out today and sent him home with 4, should have been 6 but I was off my game. Water Temps around 70. Unfortunately can only fish Thursday as I have to work a few days, this weekend. Safe travels on the Independence weekend!

      Wasn’t quite sure how this week would turn out because of all the reviews but have had a blast and caught some awesome fish. Very weedy in most of the lake canoe out to less weedy area and fished around the weeds caught multiple 4  even heavier bass in a row definitely recommend it
