I used to shoot 777 pellets but switched over to Blackhorn 209 a few years back and wouldn’t go back. It does take a hot primer. They recommend the CCI 209M or Federal 209A.
110 grains of Blackhorn 209 and a 240 grain Precision Rifle Dead Center bullet. 4 shot group at 100 yards.njjisuParticipantMay 10, 2014 at 4:58 amPost count: 554njjisuParticipantMay 1, 2014 at 3:51 amPost count: 554njjisuParticipantFebruary 20, 2014 at 12:09 amPost count: 554njjisuParticipantJanuary 28, 2014 at 11:00 pmPost count: 554
Ballard’s does have a small shop that sells a limited amount of tackle and their guides will know what’s working well. There is a shop just down the road though. I’ve stayed at Ballard’s 3 or 4 times and have always seemed to have the best luck with a gold jig head and minnow. A flasher is a definitely plus but not a must. They rent them too if you don’t have one. Their food is excellent too by the way and they’ll cook the fish you catch for you for 5 bucks or so!njjisuParticipantJanuary 28, 2014 at 10:48 pmPost count: 554
I fished Emerson bay and Little Emerson bay on Saturday. Fishing was slow. The fish were very skittish so a camera helped a lot. Any amount of jigging and they would take off. If we’d see one come into view on the camera, we’d just lightly tap the jig to get their attention and then leave it alone or just sloooowwwwly lift it a inch or two. All we caught were bluegills. I didn’t see any perch on the camera. There was the occasional crappie that’d swim through but none would bite. After dropping a wax worm down the hole and watching a bluegill eat it and immediately spit it out, I switched to a yellow crappie nibble on a gill pill. All of the fish I caught were on that setup. Minnows didn’t do anything for us either.
The ice conditions were fine in Emerson (2′ or so) but other parts of the lake got flakey due to the wind. There was a jeep, 2 sleds, and an ATV that went through on Saturday. Kabele’s in Spirit Lake does a good job of keeping up on the ice reports (and is an option for a place to stay, too).
Good luck!njjisuParticipantNovember 3, 2013 at 5:07 pmPost count: 554
I’ve got a Weston that I’ve been really happy with. I believe they make the one for Cabelas that looks similar. They take the same parts kit. It has a nice wide sealing strip. 1/4 inch or so.njjisuParticipantJune 30, 2013 at 10:51 pmPost count: 554njjisuParticipantJune 17, 2013 at 2:51 amPost count: 554njjisuParticipantMay 31, 2013 at 4:16 amPost count: 554njjisuParticipantMay 4, 2013 at 5:34 pmPost count: 554
I’ve got a Weston that I’ve been really happy with. It’s by no means cheap but is very heavy duty, has replaceable parts, and a really wide 1/4″ sealing bar.njjisuParticipantApril 26, 2013 at 3:48 amPost count: 554
I noticed you’re using an iphone for the photos. This will dramatically help increase your photo quality!
1 – Tap the “Settings” icon on the iPhone’s home screen, followed by the “General” option.
2 – Tap the “Location Services” option and tap the slider to the right of the “Location Services” heading to slide the slider to the “ON” position.
3 – Scroll down to the “Camera” option and tap the slider to the right of the “Camera” heading to slide the slider to the “ON” position.
4 – Press the “Home” button and tap the “Camera” icon to launch the Camera application.
5 – Tap the “Camera” icon to take a picture with the device.

Under the hood it’s still more or less Windows 7….that horrible home screen with the tiles pretty well ruins it for me though. If you install this (http://www.classicshell.net), it makes it a little better. It brings back the Start menu and takes you directly to the desktop when you log in vs that tiled home screen. It is better on a tablet with a touch screen but getting rid of the Start menu was an epic fail in my opinion.
