  1. Old Outdoor News Article

    I do subscribe to MHM. I vaguely remember the Maas article. For some reason I catch more muskies in open water over 40 feet deep than trolling over areas say 15 feet or less. I am always looking for that key to locating the fish that muskies feed on but have not figured out that puzzle. I see more people pulling baits over the abyss than I used to.
  2. Geez Joe, save it for the bedroom!

    My wife leaves the room when Gillespie does his slobbo routine. At least there is some emotion in that show.
  3. Looking for some help. A couple years ago someone wrote a good article about musky trolling on Leech lake. It was in Outdoor News. I wanted to read this article again but of course I had tossed the paper. Called Outdoor News. They said if I could identify the issue this article was printed in they could find a copy for me. Any chance one of you die hard musky guys kept this article. If I had the date, volume and issue info I can maybe get it from the Outdoor News.
  4. I have played both Sony and Samsung DVD and Blue Ray players thru my Samsung 32inch flat screen TV's. I have to crank up the volume almost to the max to hear the movie. No, I am not hard of hearing Ha! What's up? Watch tv thru the cable box and no problem.
  5. Brick Patio Moss

    I have a brick patio. There is moss growing between the bricks and it looks bad. What can I apply that will kill it. This patio is in full sun all day so can't believe this stuff grows so well.
  6. Will be visiting friends in Upstate NY this summer and was wondering if anybody has ever stayed at and fished near Thousand Island Marina near Cape Vincent, NY. Is the bass fishing and musky fishing any good. How are the cabins at this place?
  7. How Do I Buy Music

    Thanks for the helpful info
  8. I bought a new Sony MP3 player. I have a lot of CD's so I loaded them onto my Windows PC (windows 7) Media Player file. I have no problem loading tunes from Media Player onto the MP3 player. I have no clue how to buy music on line and get it into a form I can use to load it to the MP3. I tried buying a song from Amazon but I have no clue where it ended up. I could grab the nearest 9 year old off the street to show me how I am sure but I thought I would go this routs instead.
  9. Young's Wilderness Camp

    I would go there in June or july depending on cabin availability.
  10. This resort is on Stevens Bay just north of Nestor Falls. Any body ever stay and fish there? Considering a trip there next year. Musky and Bass are the desired species???? Any input would be appreciated.
  11. Graph/GPS combo options?

    Thru a lot of trial and error I have found keeping the front and back units separate is the way to go. I want that depth and structure reading to be right on and reading a transducer 16 feet away is just not accurate. The older chips don't work in newer units and that is either Lowrance or the Birds. I have the old chips in my sock drawer to prove it.
  12. I was looking at the Bird 800 combo units on line and they say the units have an internal gps. Does this mean no external gps puck style antennae?
  13. Trolling Motor Battery Life

    How do they act when they get weak?
  14. I have two, four year old, Interstate brand deep cycle batteries. I have had no issues with them and the plates inside appear to be in very good shape. I usually replace by trolling motor batts every 4 years but am thinking why get rid of them if they are holding up. Opinions??
  15. A year ago I replaced my entire heating and cooling system including the thermostat. I recently noticed the temp in the house only drops 1.5 degrees before the thermostat calls for heat. This causes the furnace to run often for short periods. I emailed the company and they said this was normal as their units are programmed to do just that. They said it keeps the house temp more "even and comfortable." I say this is overworking the furnace and I think I should replace this thermostat with one that allows for a bigger drop in temp before it kicks in the furnace. Any advice on this? By the way, the thermostat cannot be adjusted. I asked.
