  1. Pre-rigged worms (ie. Bills Scented worms)

    Good information Exude, thands. I've had pretty good luck with Bill's in the spring. I've fournd slow retrieve seems to be key with them. I'm having trouble finding more Bill's worms around. I live in Duluth, but do get to the cities. Doe's anyone know where I can find more?
  2. Vermilion Smallmouth Are on Fire!!

    Doug, I'm heading into snowbank this weekend. Are the smallies still up shallow, or starting to move deeper? I was planning on bringing camo and chartreuse tubes, any other colors or things you'd suggest? thanks! tinski
  3. Fishing with 2 lines in MN?

    2 lines a jig with a slip bobber on the side sounds like a real nice set up.
  4. Setting the hooks with TRigged plastics

    I also like to use a spinning outfit for worms. 6 ft. with 8lb. mono. It's probably a lot lighter than most people fish, but I don't fish tournaments and I enjoy the lighter tackle and have lost very few fish to line breakage. I usually use a a lighter bullet weight because I like the slow sink. Has anyone tried the Florida rig bullet weights? I'd like to try those this summer.
  5. soft plastics???

    Thanks for the info guys. I think I'll stick mainly to the powerbait for now and just try 1 package of the gulp.
  6. soft plastics???

    I like to use a lot of plastic worms and lizards in the summer. I was going to do the annual spring stock up this week and wondering if anyone has tried any of the GULP products yet? If so, what do you think of them compared to other soft plastics? Thanks for your thoughts, Tinski [This message has been edited by tinski (edited 04-20-2004).]
  7. This is my first time winterizing. I read the previous post and think I've got a handle on things. Does anyone know what kind of oil I need to change the oil in my engine. I have a 70 horse Envinrude 4 stroke. (I recently moved and lost my owners manual) Thanks
  8. Popularity contest: Smallie vs Largemouth

    Smallmouth is the way to go! It seems like you can also get by with a little more light weight equipment when fishing for smallmouth, which makes the fight even better.
  9. roller or bunk trailer?

    I've had both a roller and bunk trailer. I do prefer the bunk, but I agree that if you regulary use a shallow landing I would think twice about using a bunk.
  10. Help, Gas Smell!!!

    I was wondering if that was you. Thanks for taking a look at it.
  11. Help, Gas Smell!!!

    How did you know I had a princecraft? I like my princecraft quite a bit. It runs nice and I like how wide the boat is and the space it offers. Outside of the gas smell I've been very satisfied with it.
  12. Help, Gas Smell!!!

    I also played hockey. If febreeze works on that, enough said. I'll also give the baking soda a try. Thanks all
  13. I bought a used 1999 17 ft. aluminum boat. There is a gas smell that is only in the dry storage compartments up front. I brought the boat to my local dealer who did a pressure check on the gas tank and also checked all of the seals and connections. He didn't find anything. My guess is that gas from an extra tank spilled on the carpet in the dry storage. Does anyone have suggestions on how to get rid of the gas smell? Thanks much, Tinski
  14. 4 stroke oil

    Thanks CD. I'll give the regular oil a try. Thats a few extra dollars for a couple more lures then. Thanks much! Tinski
