  1. any idea where to find the shrivers spinnerbaits? Or know of a similar design? I've always been a Rad Dog guy but doing more reed fishing recently and could use a slightly more efficient tool.
  2. I have a couple home built toy hauler / fish houses with fresh wood that need paint. What is the best type? Floors will see snocat & atv traffic.
  3. Fall Leech Fishing

    Will be headed to Leech in a couple weeks for a multi-species outing. Will be launching at Kabekona so close to Steamboat Bay. Thoughts for a game plan?
  4. Need some help!!!!

    www.bronzebackbitchez.com that's the snizz right there.
  5. I would love to make it down for this but will not make it. Any chance it will taped and webcast?
  6. I had a couple weekends free up the end of Sept early October. Was thinking of making a Banzi trip to NW South Dakota for an any deer DIY bow hunt. Anybody been out that way recently? I'd appreciate any thoughts, tips etc... Feel free to PM me if you do not want to post publicly

  8. Downscans and Snapshots

    if anyone has some snapshots of the bottom hardness transition areas i'd sure love to see them and what exactly they look like, rock to sand to mud etc...and how much of a change you are looking for.
  9. Need to get a tonneau cover for new truck. Any recommendations?
  10. Baitcaster reel

    I'm the KING of cheap... for the types of lures you going to throw i wouldnt be afraid to go ABU Black MAX. For the $100 you could get two. If you want to double as a walleye rod get the Silver MAX with the flipping switch. The Black MAX with a Lightning Rod is about as good as you can get on a budget and will still fish well. other low buck baitcasters - lews, diawa exceller, quantum accurist. for the cast and retrieve baits you mention i'd stay with lower retrieve reels say 6:4:1 to 5:3:1.
  11. Help with and old 6500C

    the older 6500's are good. and there are lots of aftermarket parts available for them. worth more to fish them than as a collector. even the newer ones typically the worm gear and pall were the items that would wear out. the factory ones were not very durable but the replacement parts were, once you changed them you were typically good for quite awhile. i never had drag issues with mine so I'm not sure you'd need to upgrade it. It is important to relax the drag tension between outing though.
  12. AGM Battery's

    i'd say yes and yes. they also are not affected by cold. i have switched to AGM's in everything. AGM car batteries usually cost almost double, but the warranty on them is usually double as well. I have Cabelas AGM's as well in my boat and have been good for 6 yrs now i think. Probably going to update this year just for sanity sake. I see there are some new AGM's that are even more expensive and not sure if they are worth it or not. Cabelas, Oddessy, and the Sam's Club AGM's are the one I've heard most about.
  13. i have navionics platinum in my elite 4 mounted on my snowmobile. has 1ft contours for at least Buffalo Bay. Have not been on the Ontario Side yet with it yet. Navionics Gold mapping will be the same as Canadian Hydro maps which is good enough to navigate safely in most of NW Angle instances. Always a surprise here and there. Not sure how it relates to HD as the Elite Series does not support.
  14. deploying leadcore

    im not sure there is a faster way. similar to what you stated we start early have lures out and set before we get to spot, and everyone ive fished lead with does similar. good guides on trolling rods help as well to reduce the line out friction. the new thinner cores also help, less lineout requires less time. also helps to "break in" the lead to reduce the stiffness. i usually do this at home. Attach a hook to something, walk back spooling out the lead, then reeling it back in, do this a few times till the lead becomes more flexible.
  15. What age to start kids weight training

    proper introduction to core strength exercise at this age (11-13) is perfect. take a 75 pound kid have them jump off a three foot box and he is exerting more force through his body than any weight he / she will be able to lift. proper technique training with proper weights is the key. if you look up acceleration training it is a great place to start. it is about developing acceleration and explosiveness and far from the old bulk up bodybuilding scenarios. an often overlooked benefit is if properly done these types of exercise / training can significantly reduce injuries. and is great confidence builders for youth...also less electronic stimulation time
