'Beelzebob', I vowed to myself to post my toughest day you might be interested. Mon. had the pleasure to fish with family,Kurt&Katherine teens Bryce and Sierra the fishing in the morning started out slow we managed to get 5 walleyes and some panfish in the livewll for a shore lunch. The afternoon fishing picked up we kept 5 more walleyes to make a limit. We had our best luck fishing deeper wood in 12-14,crawlers and leeches. Tue. Fished with husband and wife Kieth and Caroline. Was pretty excited about the day, two days after the cold front, dark day, nice chop,30-50 fish day?The fish weren't reading it that way. Other than a cold front in May it was my toughest day this year. I reflected on the day in the evening I recalled 16 spots, deep, shallow and in between we skipped lunch to keep fishing(their choice,I'm not that much of a slave driver). We assembled a stringer of fish shown above I thought we had six walleyes in the livewell turned out 5 a sixth would have been pretty small. I don't meet many people who deer hunt more than I do so the day went fast we had a lot to talk about, they showed me a picture of a monster buck Caroline killed last year. Crawlers worked the best, walleyes in deeper wood panfish in 6-8'wood and rock on the bottom. Incidentally I talked to a fellow guide the following day who told me the barometric pressure that day was 31 which is really high, I don't like to have excuses all you can do is fish hard all day and let the chips fall where they may.

    • It seems to be working😉
    • I've heard good things about the Browning's. 
    • Just curious- what about your old now is making you switch?   I've shot both and have no real concerns with either. Elite makes a nice bow and has several good options over the past few years. But... regardless of brand there are lots of good options out there. Shoot what feels good to you and hits where you're aiming. Totally generic,  but good advice IMO. 
    • I was surprised by that too Wanderer. I bought 2 of them about a month ago and am giving them a whirl. I've got 3 on bear baits right now. I'll have a feel for them in a couple weeks. 
    • I did not last year and I am not sure about this year.  I would sure like to.  New job and some new help at the hunt didnt allow me time to volunteer last year.  Hope this year is different.
    • The Moultrie M50 was rated 81/100 on Trailcam pro.  I was surprised to see the majority of the highest rated cameras were Browning.  I like the Browning brand for firearms but have considered many of their other products to be mid-level offerings.
    • I'm not sure Hoyt4 I've never messed with the video part. I'll take a look when I get home. 
    • MJ 1657 I just bought an M50. Mills had them on sale for $129.99. The infared version was $139.99. Only been using it for about a week and so far I like it. That buck in the night time pictures is quite a ways out from the camera.    I've had a Moultrie 880 for years and it's been a solid camera.    MJ Did this Moultrie have picture video at the same time like the old 880? I have not found another camera to do that but the Moultrie and it's great. I'm running out of this version only have two left now.
