  1. Past hour
  2. Ended up being the clutch dog and reverse gear were wore out... 550 for parts...I almost ended up getting a whole new lower unit, but a buddy was able to find the parts...The shop said they discontinued the parts Yada Yada Yada, but some shop in Hackensack was able to find them I guess...just want the dang boat back ha...
  3. Yesterday
  4. That's rough DrJ, were you on public or private land?
  5. They're finally playing someone outside of the central division tonight, so we'll see what happens. Did Sano get suspended for throwing a punch yesterday?
  6. OK, to go back to original question, how much current do the 12 volt pumps used in those sort of systems use? I can go look up the information and figure it out, but I hoped someone here already knew the answer.
  7. DonBo, good luck on your bow quest, your father raised you well! What a great way to celebrate life by sharing a hunt together.
  8. My family has LIfe 360 on our phones. It allows you to know exactly where that phone is at all times. My teenage kids were not to hip on the idea until my wife explained that you either have the app or you don't have a phone. It already saved a phone. My son dropped his phone in the middle of a bean field last summer. We were able to use the app to drive a wheeler to within 10ft. Well worth it.
  9. My personal opinion on the backup pumps is that they are a stop gap to buy you enough time to minimize the amount of water that backs up during a torrential storm while you get your primary pumps on a generator. Obviously the biggest factor is to figure out how much water can enter the drainage system during the heaviest downpours and that can help you decide what gpm you need to stay ahead of the water. If you get a bigger backup pump then you will burn through a battery faster. If you don't get a lot of water in the system ever and if the sump pump only runs periodically during even heavy rains and wet weather then you can get more run time from a smaller system. There really isn't a way to say exactly what you need to be 100%safe unless you know exactly what flows you have.
  10. Already doing many of these. It's slowly improving.
  11. I was just getting some info on this unit: http://www.zoellerpumps.com/en-ap/product/63-basement-sentry#features I am sure you could hook up multiple batteries as well
  12. Sunday, pulled a group of 3 toms from about 500 yds across private into the public only to hang up at 60 yds. We worked them for 2 hrs and they never got in front of the blind. They finally got closer, but instead of going in front of the blind, they got behind the blind at about 5 yards inside the woodline and could hear them stepping on twigs. Man what a rush. Sadly, they walked back onto private and out of our lives LOL. Kinda wish I was hunting with a shotgun! 3 or 4 gobblers were rattling off behind us in the woods in the morning and shut up by 7. The 3 that we got to come in from private were to the other side and they didn't gobble til they were close enough to see/hear our setup. Those two hours were between 8 and 10. Will try again.
  13. They will lose 90 to 100 games again this year. They do not have the pitching to even get to 500. Santana will be our lone all-star and be traded before end of year. Hope something changes but they did not add anything for starters or offensive so until they do we will get the same junk. Really sucks cause i love watching and listening to the games all summer long.
  14. % of people that have picked that person.
  15. Some rainy river monsters! 61" 60" and a 54"! Have a look!
  16. Many big sturgeon boated this past week again. Has been a great year for sturgeon so far up and down the river. Fish different holes until you find fish. Use a 3 ounce no roll sinker, a 1-1.5 foot leader, and a circle hook loaded (called a sturgeon rig) with frozen shiners and crawlers for best results. Anchor boat up stream of a deeper hole and pitch sturgeon rig into the hole. Heavy equipment is preferred. Pike fishing is going good right now in shallow bays and on the Rainy River. Best methods so far are using buzz baits or lying a frozen cisco on bottom with a hook and weight(similar to a sturgeon rig but with less weight). Pike are active in bays. The lake and bays and water starting to warm up and pike are being caught. Pike are open all year up on LOW. Up at the NW Angle, the ice is gone and it's open water. Remember, walleyes open May 13th, pike and crappies open all year for LOW MN and sturgeon fishing through May 15th and then again July 1st.
  17. Was clearing some downed trees from trails this morning. Checked a couple of trees and would you look at that. I didn't look very hard so I'm sure there are more, but of course have to head to work. Cold weather predicted after today though...
  18. Fished the Chip this weekend and found some success. Lots of crappie action in select bay and bottle neck areas near warm water, timber and old cabbage. Bobber and minnow was best, but anything was working. We kept 10 smaller fish for the 3 of us and that was plenty of fish for us. No need in keeping 25 fish (what a joke). I wish the DNR would reduce the limit in WI!
  19. CM..that is a big "if" and pretty much the story of the series...good puck possession, lots of shots, few goals...and they have to find guys that can score against the "Allen's" of the world going forward...we aren't going to be playing against trash tenders come any playoff time. Agree with your observation on the D zone coverage...way too much stick checking all over the ice by both forwards and Dmen...lack of putting body on opponents is either A - pure laziness or B - simply outmatched physically. This has to be addressed going foward. Quite frankly I cannot think of one player that stepped up in the playoffs and played above their reg season...not one. Haula seems to be a headcase...I don't think he is near as good as he thinks he is and tends to beat to his own drum IMO but we might be stuck with him. Ek will figure it out...playing in the World's now after playing in the Junior World's as well so he'll keep working on his game and be a good one soon IMO. Will be interesting to hear Fletch's spin on things when he assesses things publicly soon but my guess is it will be "the sky is not falling...blah blah blah" same dump every year. Sounds Like Leo is keeping him unfortunately...but he's made his own bed, now he has to sleep in it and there are not many GM's in the NHL that envy his postion IMO.
  20. So this is my first year playing Bassmasters Fantasy Fishing, What does the Own % mean and does it have anything to do with the points you would earn if that person is on your team? Or is it a % of people that have picked that person. Thanks
  21. What are my choices? I have a pump, well actually two pits with two pumps, one on each end of basement. Probably half horse pumps? I don't recall what they are. So if I get one of those battery back up things, ideally I would want it to protect against both pump failure and power outage. I figure power outage is maybe 12 to 24 hours except for some real disaster here in Rochester. Pump failure could be days if I am out of town. But if the battery charger can keep up with the average draw, it would be ok. Pumping head is about 5 feet if that matters.
  22. If possible, get doctor to give you prednisone or an inhaled cortico-steroid like flovent or asminex (assuming you have prescription drug insurance) Or the codine cough syrup if nothing else. It is cheap. Need a prescription, though
  23. There also the 360 things by some companies.
  24. Hi all, Any advice on purchasing a side image depthfinder? Worth it? Brand & model? Thanks! Ref
  25. Which size are you referring to?
  26. How much current do the battery pumps draw?
  27. Way to go Archery Sniper! Starting us off in the right direction.
