  1. 20 Lb Propane Holder

    HighLife, problem solved! I will drink to that:) Thanks!
  2. Leadcore Walleye Rods

    The Walleye Angler Series rods from Bass Pro are top notch as well. Parsons and Kavajecz put those together. The 5 foot shorty rods from Scheels are really good too. Top them off with a Tekota 600 LC reel by Shimano and your will be set for years to come.
  3. I am looking to mount a 20 pound tank for my kids's permanent deer stands. It is 12 feet off the ground. Does anyone know of a good bracket or system to mount it to the leg or somewhere else? Just looking for suggestions without setting it on the ground. Thanks!
  4. Shower system suggestion

    Thanks for the suggestions. Keep them coming so I can share with the boys this weekend. All great ideas. We have used the bilge and battery system before. Just was curious to what everyone else was doing.
  5. Just curious as to what people use at their cabins/deer camps for showering systems. We have electricity and a shower stall (no running water)and have been using the 5 gallon bucket method and heating water on the stove on years. Looking to do something else. ANy suggestions welcome. Thanks!
  6. Favorite pic

    This came off my trail camera in our first winter storm in Minnesota a few weeks back and I had to share it.
  7. Antler Ideas

    Probably close to 200 racks would be my guess. Thanks for sharing the ideas and keep them coming.

  10. Antler Ideas

    I am looking for some ideas of what to do with old sheds and racks as far as decorating at our shack. We have lots and lots laying around from the last 50 years. Looking for some outside ideas. I saw a pic where someone had mounted all his horns from the ceiling in his garage and it looked pretty cool. Not interested in making lamps, etc.. If you have any ideas or pics, I would like to see them. Thanks, Todd
  11. Smoking Fish

    Here is what I use on walleyes 6 cups of water 2/3 cup of pickling salt 1/3 cup of brown sugar. soak for 2 hrs and then hit the smoker for 3hrs at about 200 degrees. If you like it sweeter, you can sprinkle brown sugar on them after then have been in the smoker for a bit. Simple recipe and it works for me.
  12. Lowrance X111 problem

    The tech lady I talked to said she had never heard of this before. I was wondering if she even knew what a sonar/GPS unit was. Thanks for the input.
  13. When I turn the unit on, the screen lights up like it usually does, then goes dim, makes a series of quick beeps, and then shuts off. I have hooked a Global Map 6500 up to the same connections, a 532 and another X111 and they all work fine. Just trying to figure out what the problem might be before I have to send it in. I haven't tried resetting it yet as I took it out of the boat for the winter but that's going to be my next step. Anyone else had this problem? Thanks, LR
  14. Any fishing reports?

    The guys that won the tourney there last weekend would probably say the bite was pretty good. We struggled 3 days in pre-fishing and didn't get a lot of numbers during the tourney.
