I am sure you would get more and better replies if mentioned what kind of leaders. Steel, wire, etc.

Thorne Brothers is a good place for most kinds of leader material; solid wire, multistrand wire, mono (love the 200lb stuff fo Muskie), and various hard and soft mono for steelhead and fly fishing.

Actually -- I do make a monthly pilgrimage to Thorne but I was unaware that they had these sort of options. Several ideas just came to me this past weekend and I had no idea where to start. The interlink wasn't being too friendly with my request.

Thanks for the info

it's all on the fly angler side. they moved a bunch more muskie lures/stuff over there. maybe that's why? more exposure for wide eyed muskie fisherpeople with blinders on. grin

yes. here's some helpfull directions... there's two ways to get there.

first one... go toward the door you normally would but instead of going in turn right and go in the next door, ask attendent.

way two... go into the normal door take three or four paces, not sprints, paces, stop and look to your right. you need to turn your whole body too. then take two paces forward and about, ohhhh, 7 or eight paces to your left again, look at the wall on your left. it should be right there. if not, they sold it all. good luck.

    • Prespawn might be a stretch but I bet you see them on the beds.  Late start/almost no spring in these parts but the water has warmed quickly once the ice finally left.   Last weekend, at about the same latitude as OTC (assuming that’s where you’re headed) the males were all over in the shallows.  Didn’t see many bass beds yet and didn’t see any big females but they’re getting close.  Didn’t have a way to check temps so I can’t tell ya that, just what I saw.   Heading to Ely this weekend - I’ll have temps and observations from there next week.
    • So Fenton is the pick, maybe we can sell off our talent and pickup some middling speedsters/diamonds in the rough and make a vegas like run. 
    • It is not looking good from our end. I finally got Morgan out yesterday and she came to full draw on a nice tom but he busted her on the draw and scooted out of there. I got a shot off at him at 20 yards and he was walking and I didn't quite lead him enough. I clipped feathers back in high but he was fine otherwise.   I have family obligations this coming weekend and stuff going on the following weekend. There's a good chance that our turkey season is over.  If this was Ryan without the tag he would be pushing hard and still chomping at the bit to shoot something. Morgan is much less concerned with filling her tag.    Unpunched tags drive me completely crazy! But it looks like we will have some in the Engel household this year. Sorry team! Good job to you guys who managed to get it done and my apologies that we couldn't hold up our end of the bargain. Well... Ryan did, but Morgan and I couldn't do it this year. Next time!
    • The lake was low when we fished it but they only closed the dam days before ,, should be able to get under the bridge to get to Little yellow ,,, I have not heard that the crappie action was going well tho ,,, Did catch some decent pike  but no walleyes 
    • How high is the water, wondering if we can get into little yellow this memorial weekend or not.  How was fishing?    
    • Here are a couple pictures from our WI season. We were able to take 5 birds. Two of us had two tags and one buddy just had one tag. Really think the predators in the area have these birds learning to be silent. They do not gobble much and if they do it’s mainly morning before fly down 2 or 3 times at the most. Over that last 5 years it’s been like this the first 10 years gobbling was heard through the day but now you don’t hear that gobbling in the distance or to calls very often. Still come to calls but almost ways silent now which is fine they still come in.   Finally all done and food plots are almost finished love the spring time.
    • Congrats on the bird
    • Congrats on the bird.
    • Assume you were in a blind since you are bow hunting.  That is a long time ...  active bird or no bird.   Very Nice.
    • Way to go!  That's persistence!
