Jewell Outdoors delivers the goods

4 posts in this topic

Jewell Outdoors delivers the goods...to wherever you need it! I was a little nervous around two weeks ago about getting bait...I was heading up to the boundaries of the BWCA/Quetico Nat'l Park for a week, with fishing in the tentative plans for each evening...Would a delivery truck be able to make the hour trip up the Gunflint Trail? I got in contact with Mark at Jewell Outdoors and he called me personally to confirm that a delivery of a pound of jumbo leeches could be made, 60 miles up the Gunflint Trail! Mark went out of his way to make sure that the leeches would arrive on time, and when my wife and I arrived, our leeches were already delivered and put into refrigeration by my wife's family. It was great service at a price that blew away anything you could purchase on the way up, if you could find anything that is.

While the weather was unkind and the fishing slow, the leeches were popular with at least a few smallmouth bass and walleyes, and even a rare jumbo perch.

Thanks Mark and Jewell Outdoors for your service. I will be ordering again...what better way to prepare for a big trip or excursion than making sure you have fresh, healthy bait, on time, at a great price.

Hey that's a great idea, bait on demand if you will laugh

Hard to beat bait waiting in the fridge for you.

That's a cool story, never would have though to have them delivered and meet me where I'm going to fish.

    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.   
    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...there goes the neighborhood. 
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
