  1. I got a email that the Gander Mountain in Woodbury is closing Going to try to get down there to see what kind of deals they have it says everything must go.
  2. The bomber 6a model it has a tighter wiggle than the sk 4 series and runs 6-8ft.
  3. With that kind of mindset they wonder why everyone shoots first and asks questions later. No one wants to hear the talk.
  4. Frog fishing on Chisago was pretty decent on Saturday 5:00am until 10am. All the fish seems pretty fat like they have been eating well recently. South end in the slop and around most of the big floating weed beds were pretty active. The three smaller bays were giving up fish but a little smaller in size than on the main lake. Did some cranks also in 10'-15' off weed edges and the pike were all over them.
  5. I guess you know who's boat you will be taking next time. I hate when that stuff happens. We broke a live well pump connection last weekend and filled the boat up with water quite a ways before the bilge pump went off and made us scramble for the launch.
  6. We have been using frogs since opening weekend and have had great success some 20+ fish days just on the frogs. Fishing open lily pad pockets and edges of weed mats was still working well Wednesday when we were out.
  7. I was wondering how in tournaments when they release the bass in a different part of the lake after weight in how does it affect the fish? These fish were in relatively safe area's when caught now they have been yanked out of their safe area put in a live well moved all over the place and released in a totally different area of the lake. Do these fish make there way back to the area's that they were originally caught? And if so does it take them a day or a week to get back? Just some things I have been wondering about.
  8. Northern Metro lakes that I have gone to in the past 2 weeks have had good top water bite near emerging pads in the morning with swim jigs and wack rigged worms working later in the day. Shallow square bill cranks have been working quite well also.
  9. I find a few each year in WBL but nothing consistent. They are big though. Gotten some from deeper docks and rocky bottom area's.
  10. 12lb Fluorocarbon would be my choice on that reel.
  11. I am in to.
  12. I think they are worth it myself. I get out 50+ days a year and throw a lot of cranks and they hold up great.
  13. I have a Revo Winch and love it. Smooth as silk and casts a mile. I did change out my bearings to boca bearings.
  14. I agree. I have to have multiple tabs open to look at the Bass and the Upper Red postings. Still lurking just not posting much.
  15. Very nice Prairie. I hear everything is bigger in TX.
