  1. Defective Rapalas

    Rapalas may well be less than sturdy , BUT, it is hard to beat their sweet action.
  2. New use for cordless drill

    Very nice!.....
  3. Bass Photos

    MilleLacs is one fine Smallie lake!
  4. How to keep striped gophers out of the garden?

    I'm splitting a gut laughing at your post, cause it reminds me of Bill Murray and the gopher in Caddyshack.......sorry.
  5. 2015 Vikings Draft

    All the media outlets seem to agree that the Vikings had the best draft of all teams.....Not only got quality players , but, filled several needs.
  6. chubby chasing

    You sir are under arrest for harboring a fugitive, assume the position!.......
  7. Buzzbaits in the spring?

    I have found that I have much better luck when I use a Norman triwing buzzbait. The triple blade allows you to retrieve much slower while still keeping the lure on the surface......The Norman buzzbait has a bit smaller profile that is mostly weedless....I've been using the same model for more than 30 years and have tried many others but, wind up back to the Norman lure.
  8. wisconsin lake

    Wapogasset was rated the #1 largemouth lake in Wisconsin a few years ago.
  9. Carbontex drag upgrade/Bearing upgrade

    I just hate it when you have extra parts.......I did the same thing with my curado, and , had to have it reassembled.
  10. Insulating low piched roof rafters?

    You absolutely need ventilation! Use those prefabricated soffit vents,easy to install, then spray foam over the installed vents. That should seal up most air leaks at the rafter lower end. Considering you have such a small roof , use those vents all the way bottom to top of rafters, making sure you vent out at the top of the rafters. I've had several experiences with a choice of vent or no vent. You will regret it if you don't.
  11. big bird

    Cream shi%&@$s!
  12. Carbontex drag upgrade/Bearing upgrade

    I have found that often way too much grease and or oil are used on reels . Only a small amount of both go a long way. Ceramic bearings can be run with no lubrication , but are a little noisy unlubed. Shimano is notorious for overlubing gears on their new reels.
  13. Walking Dead

    You guys must have a bunch of spare time on your hands!.....Every time I see the commercial for walking dead ,I'm thinking , who in the he.. is watching this show?...Now I know of 2 at least.
  14. I bet if you kept his traps that you found on your property for safe-keeping that would solve the problem.
