    Yeah, your both totally right on.. how bout another metro lake? Let's motivate someone to organize something.. I know I lack the motivation part
  2. bowfishing tournaments?

    I am wondering if there's any tournaments around the metro? I would love to see one on Tonka next spring. Is there enough people interested to make it worth trying to arrange one?

  4. Looking for a Black and Tan Coonhound

  5. Looking for a Black and Tan Coonhound

    ok, I have met a few walker mixes at the humane society lately ( they seem to always have some) and they seem pretty nice, I dont know what I want though, I hear some people say that hounds are horrible family pets and some say that they are one of the best.. Im not looking for a champion lined dog thats gonna wanna run non stop.. But It will be excercised alot with parks/lakes/kids.. How are they in the cold and snow??
  6. Looking for a Black and Tan Coonhound

    are you reffering to all types of hounds? I had a beagle for 15 yrs, and she never ran away once, stuck to my side at all times, was very quiet, pretty much everything oposite of what I was told would happen when I got her.
  7. Im looking for a coonhound, a black and tan or a treeing walker maybe. Does anyone know of any breeders in or around Minnesota? Or any info on the dogs from someone who owns one would be great too. It will be mostly just a family dog, but I would like to run it once in a while, nothing to serious though.. Just looking for a good fun, well behaved dog.. Thanks for any info recieved!!!
  8. lets see your dogs

    Im looking for a coonhound, a black and tan or a treeing walker maybe. Do you know of any breeders in or around Minnesota? It will be a family dog for the most part, although I would like to have it trained well as I have access to run it.. I had a tricolor beagle for 14 years, they are somewhat simmilar in behavior right? I know they are all different, my beagle never left my side or barked without reason.. She was also about 25-30lbs full grown.. Any info about coonhounds would be appreciated! Thanks

  12. HELP!!!!!!

  13. Hitch ball grease

    there really is no need to grease your ball, a 2" ball pulling a 20ft boat all day and all night will last for years and years, so will the coupler.. I HAVE seen worn balls, but they have all been on commercial/contractor trucks that tow bobcats non-stop.. Chances are the trailer is more likely to come apart than the ball breaking... Just check everytime to make sure that the keeper is up tight against the bottom part of the ball, (just stick a finger under the coupler and feel if its "snug") Plus a ball is what 10-20 bucks every 20 years?? Beats sloppin grease all over everywhere and everything..
  14. ok, thank you both very much for the replys, I do have other st. croix rods that I love, so I think i will get another. Anyone have a absolute favorite besides a custom? Is it a bad idea to try and build st croix or loomis for a first timer?
  15. Ive broken 2 St. Croix IPC Avid Series 6'6" and a 7' Med -Fast action rods...AVS66MF and AVS70MF The 6'6" was 11 months old and it broke from a 41" muskie on tonka, broke right after the 2nd eyelet, the epoxy behind all the eyelets was cracked too. I got it replaced from Dick's sporting goods because I had a year replacement "plan", it took 43 days to get a gift card from them..Next day, went to Dick's got a 7ft version of the same rod..FOUR HOURS LATER,SNAP, broke 8-10 inches of the tip by pulling line from the reel by hand, rod wasnt bent enough to warrant a snap like that, the end popped off like a tooth pick!! So i returned that one 5hrs later.. at no time was the drag too tight for what I was doing.. So, now what?? Any suggestions? Loomis?? Never had a problem with them, I have aa 6'6"light fast action gl2 that brought a 51" muskie in that sufferered no damage what so ever
