  1. Vendetta Rods

    Anyone have a comparison of the Skeet rods to the vendetta?
  2. A couple Hayward area lakes

    I was out on chetek and birch about 2 weeks ago. We fished the channel between the lakes with limited success. Once we were in chetek the pads were the hot ticket, many good sized bass in that lake. We had some fun fishing around the islands also. I would love to make it back out there for more than the afternoon we were out there. A lot of fishy waters in that area.
  3. Casseta's in st paul is awesome for pizza and pasta. I have never seen a restaurant treat a group of 50 9th graders with such respect.
  4. Sonar/GPS Help

    Thanks PerchJerker, Is there a good place to get info on how to do an update?

    The bluefin was fun to watch. They fought the thing for 3 hours with a winch, thats impressive to me. Hopefully there is some more fishing the next couple of episodes though.
  6. chartreuse what a wonderful color

    I buy greens, I have more confidence in that color for no reason really, but hey it takes guess work out.
  7. I would try calling them. They are a lot more likely to answer phone calls.
  8. My grand father recently purchased a HDS 5 System on his boat and I have been put in charge of figuring it out. I understand some of it but I am still trying to figure some sonar things out 1. The sonar will not read the bottom in weeds, instead it will have vertical lines. I have done some research on this but have come up with nothing. 2. When it first came it had maps preloaded, but now they are not there, was it just like a month trial and I need to purchase a something now? 3. How can you tell if there is a hard bottom on the sonar? Thanks, any help is greatly appreciated.

  13. Aggresive Pike

    I had that happen this summer with 2 pound bass and a 44 inch musky. It hit when the bass was being reeled in on the surface right by the boat. I held on for my life while the musky did the same. Ended netting the both after a minute of not knowing what to do. The bass was my limit fish for my tourney, swam right off after release, even with some very visible teeth marks...
  14. Deeper Water Tactics

    Rattle Traps can be necessary If your weed line is over 15 feet deep just to get to the strike zone. My question is how do you identify a hard bottom on a color sonar like the HDS series?
