Archer & Angler

Welcome to the Archer & Angler.

Matrix 380 blows up!

Well this weekend I participated in the annual P&P archery tournament. I decided to enter in the crossbow category. Let me preface my following observations by saying I love the bow.

I am extremely sore and...

Drop shots (shots, shots, shots, shotsshots)

Hey guys, Been trying my hand at drop shotting perch in Simcoe lately. Made up my own rig with the 10lb mono a sinker and a couple #4 hooks. I'm using night crawlers for bait and man oh man is it working. Sometimes the sinker isn't making contact with the bottom before I'm getting strikes. Granted, most of these shore casted perch are pretty small, but after 30-40 fish, I had a few...

Crankbaits and Bass Holes

Hey all... well I'm between hunting seasons so I laced up the rod and tossed some bait in the water.. I would, by no means, consider myself an expert fisherman so imbibe me with wisdom. My mother was the fisherman of the family, from what I hear from my uncle, she was this way as a little girl too. She could pull a 5lb trout out of a sidewalk puddle with little more than a shoestring, single...

French River - 2014

Arrow Cut-off Saw

I am looking to purchase an arrow cut-off saw and am wondering if any of you have one and/or have advice on a good one to purchase. Is dust collection important? Is there a lot of dust from each arrow? I see there are saws with and without dust collection.

Mid-season Ice Report

So winter showed up in a rush this year and it's looking like it will continue to hold steady right through to mid-March. How it started... I was driving down the road and looked over at a series of ponds close to my house. Saw a couple guys on the ice with rods. Second weekend of December... sure why not? I had my gear loaded in the back of my ride ready to fish from the first deep freeze so I...
