Jewell Outdoors delivers the goods

Recommended Posts

Jewell Outdoors delivers the 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.

    • I will have to find some more, cause we ate all of them! They were all connected on the bottom as they are supposed to be. I haven't seen a half-free or a Verpa yet this year and I have only seen a couple of Devil's urn's. The popple fuzz was covering everything this morning so they were a little difficult for me to see. Hopefully we get a shot of water with the lightning over night.
    • Good job!  I have never found any Blacks so they look a little different.  Can you take a picture of what they look like cut in half? They look a little scary like False Morel's 
    • I picked for about 2 hours this morning. I'm not exactly haw many I got but its enough for a couple meals. I'm going to chop some of these up and mix with some cream cheese, feta cheese and garlic chives and then stuff some chicken breasts and cook them on the grill. The little bit of rain that we got last week helped the shrooms pop but it really didn't do much else for the woods besides help the mosquito's hatch. There were so many they licked the bug spray off first then swarmed. I found the mushrooms all over, North, South, East and West facing hills. Normally spot 1 has the best results but this trip it was my second spot. All of them had pretty good size too. Only a few that were in direct sunlight were dried up otherwise they are very firm. Spot 1 is the left container. Don't worry, I use a mesh bag while I'm out in the woods!
    • Yup.... 6 & 4 for Lead.... 4 & 2 for steel
    • I ended up framing my house, putting on the T&G , and then spray foaming back against the interior, which may be why I am not seeing any movement... I also used pine vs cedar
    • I agree with the guy who agreed with the other guy.
    • Just wait till they come up with the remote submarine drone with 3d high resolution camera that can see through algae and milfoil and transmit to your eyewear in 3d.   I struggle with properly tying a berkley knot......
    • I agree with rundrave. #4 early and #2 shot later in year
    • Yes, 5/16 T&G I installed last fall. I did the same, but I see this summer it's starting to buckle  
    • Adding a 4th wouldn't do much IMO. The map screen is already too small to be useful when screen is split in 3. I added a Helix 7 G2N to use as a map screen. Networked with other 2 units
