Don , If you don't mind picking bones out of the fish ,their great eating . I had shad roe for lunch today . No bones in that . I ate 2 fish already and may have another for supper tomorrow . I caught 19 more today . Their some fun . If you have a good run there you'll not be sorry to hit them with the shad darts . Our limit is 5 per day . I put up 6 bottles to try them like that . I'm hopeing the bones will dissapear ...... LOL......Fat chance of that . !!!!! When I clean them ,I cut off the belley flap close to where the meat on the upper section of the fish starts . That really gets rid of a lot of bone . I bake them in the oven in tinfoil . The meat comes off the bone better .
My son Mark and I went fishing yesterday for some seatrout . We caught 8 . I put them in the bottles whenever I got home . Now , you don't wonder what the poor people eat ......LMAO.........
We had some compaly while we were fishing . The friggin things .
Don , This is the gear we use to catch the shad . They work great . I put a swival om my line then I attach a 3 foot leader 6 or 8 lb to the swival and put a small bell sinker on the swival then tie the dart to the end of the leader . That gets out and down to the fish .
Here is a pic of the trout befor they hit the cooker ,,
Don , I put my own tails on the darts with a little crystal flash added . They work a lot better . I'm one of the top dogs on the river ..... LMAO.......
Accuracy. What an incredible way to give yourself a true advantage.
Go to your club and get a bunch of guys together - and put a target out there at 250 meters. Break out the deer rifles and see who can shoot a decent group, even off of the bench, at this distance. I think you will be shocked at how few can do it.
So - with that in mind, I recently set out to try to develop a semi-custom rifle that I could afford and that would shoot - repeatedly - at MOA.
I started with a platform that I love...
