Get the lead out program How does it work???

4 posts in this topic

I'm interested in this can someone explain to me how this event works. Do they give you back the same axact amount of tackle you turn in and if I go in there with my box full of jigheads will they exchange them all or how does it work exactly? Thanks

I have had Mike with the MPCA out for the last 2 years in a row for a fishing league that I run. This is a terrific opportunity to find safe replacements for lead in the tackle box. With the tackle exchange program they won't typically give you an even exchange of 1 for 1, but they are usually pretty liberal with the free stuff and have alot of variety in the substitute products available.

Give it a shot, what can it hurt? How many of us have all kinds of different lead we never use in our boxes? Take that to an exchange program and give the new, safe stuff a try! It's free!

They normally don't give you the same amount back for what you turn in. Its supposed to jump start the process in your tackle box. But it is free, and a great way to start replacing the lead stuff in your tackle box with non-lead. If you want some websites with non-lead options shoot me an email and I can send you some links. I run the exchange program year round, at Lebanon Hills Regional Park Visitor Center in Eagan, I recommend not turning in your entire tackle box, because I don't have enough non-lead here to replace all that. But if you bring in a decent amount I try to match it as best I can.

    • I would say your results speak for themselves, we often do things that don't make sense or trade short term gain for long term trouble. Nature does things for a reason that we often don't understand, why try to fix what isn't broken?
    • Two charter boats. (11 people) Fishing was very slow last Sunday afternoon (8), but we did really well on Monday morning (43). Due to bad luck drawing cards, neither Mrs Duff or I touched a rod on Sunday. She went 5 for 5 on Monday. That's fishing for ya though. And true fishermen understand that.   Some real nice fish this year, good luck to those that make it out there.      
    • And no, it does not have some sort of virus. They are calling it a phishing site and it is not. It competes with Google adsense so it make sense for Google to be sloppy in their algorithm.
    • Great storytelling with pictures on a portion of your life experiences in the  great outdoors.  Thanks for sharing Len.  
    • Len - This was a very nice article.  I enjoyed your writing style.  Take care.
    • I am going to pick up a box to pattern against what I am shooting now. Here is my question. They are available in both 1 3/4 oz. shot and 1 7/8 oz. shot in 12 gauge. In a 3" 12 gauge #5 shot shell, that comes out to a 21 pellet difference. The velocity for 1 3/4 is 1200 fps, for 1 7/8 is 1080. At 20 yards it would make very little difference, but say at 45 yards would you rather have the extra 21 pellets or the added velocity? I suppose the answer is to buy both and pattern them, but I am curious as to the thoughts of the folks on this board. Thanks
    • I was looking to get an otter XT pro cabin this winter, I was wondering of anyone on here has an otter in the pro platform and how they like the extra insulated walls. Does it seem bulky? Too warm on above 0 days? I wouldn't mind just the normal cabin but they only offer it with a bench it seems but having the extra insulation may be nice to have for those cold days here and there. 
    • Thank You for the very interesting and enjoyable morning read
