    Thanks for the info.
  3. Minnetonka Water Temps?

    Current water temps? Any evidence of turnover yet?
  4. I've already got a CVA .50 cal Kodiak, and I like it, but I'm looking to purchase a second muzzleloader. I do a lot of hunting in Nebraska which allows for a scope, and the potential for long range shots. I've been considering getting a .45 cal. I've also noticed that .45's aren't very popular in stores. Any thoughts?
  5. iPilot link problem

    I've tried everything above, and then some. I even uploaded the most current software updates from Humminbird, and it's still not working. That is what customer support advised me to do. Can someone recommend a repair shop that's good with electronics?
  6. iPilot link problem

    Igor Honestly, I'm not even sure about the remote. The first time I tried it, I actually forgot the remote in my truck. The second time I tried, I did have the remote, but I can't be certain the prop was "on" on the remote itself. I know the trolling motor was "on" otherwise, because the spot lock feature was working.
  7. iPilot link problem

    Thanks for the ideas...
  8. iPilot link problem

    Yes, I have the latest Lakemaster chip.
  9. iPilot link problem

    I just purchased and installed my Terrova iPilot link and Humminbird 859 unit. I thought I had it hooked up correctly, but the "follow the contour" feature isn't working. I select the depth contour I want to follow, then select the direction (color), but the trolling motor doesn't engage. The "spot lock" feature does work however. Any ideas what the problem is, or can someone point me in the right direction to someone who might know?
  10. Draw weight???

    Thanks for the input.
  11. Draw weight???

    I'm relatively new to archery, and just increased my draw weight from 55 lbs to 70 lbs after I felt I got the form and mechanics down. My shot groups weren't as consistent as they had been, and I'm wondering if the lack of consistency is most likely my error, or if my arrows could be too light for the higher draw weight? As long as I can comfortably draw and hold, is it recommended to max out the draw weight?

    Thanks Del, I'll let you know which recipe I use, and how it turns out! John
  13. Halibut Recipes?

    Thanks everybody for all the input. I too prefer halibut grilled, but I won't have access to a grill where I'm making it. Del, If you could share the pan seared halibut and steamed halibut recipes, I would love to check them out. John
  14. Halibut Recipes?

    Anybody have any good recipes for baking, broiling, or frying halibut. I checked the food network, but nothing caught my eye.
  15. Minnkota and iPilot Link

    Thanks Del, I'll check that out.
