PLEASE don't hate me!!

After getting extremely bad news about our boat and trying to juggle $$, I am going to have to back out of the GTG. The motor on the boat went out opening fish weekend, and if we get it fixed now, the mfg. will supply the new power head at no charge, but we have to pay labor. Sorry girls.

Nadine - great news that you've decided to go!!

Sorry you're not gonna make it Debbie. frown I was

looking forward to meeting you

Lisa - dad and I just went to Spring Lake in Prior Lake.

One of the only 2 lakes I can get him to go to. He's kinda

stuck in his ways - in fact, took forever to talk him into changing to a lure color close to mine (I had caught 4 fish up to that point) - but caught his walleye about 5 min. after he changed it up.

Patti wow small world. I am on the east side, by Frenchmans.

Ya we did real well Monday nite. Took my 21 year old daughter and a neighbor. We lost count at around 75 crappies and 4 sunfish. No walleyes. All fish were C&R. We did this in less than 3 hours. It was a blast. No real size yet, as all the crappies were between 6-9 1/2 inchers.

G.C.

Don't worry about, stuff happens. Maybe the next one, we usually try to get together several times a year. I know how you feel, we just sunk $800 into our truck and now it has something else wrong with it.

Well there wasn't to many at that size, maybe 5 or 6. Still a lot of fun.

There may be hope afterall - the mfg will cover most of the labor cost for the boat repair. We were looking at close to $1,500 in getting the boat fixed - huge weight came off the shoulders.

Providing nothing else breaks down or falls apart between now and the GTG, I think I can swing it.

OK Gals - less than two weeks away! laughlaugh

Musky will be open by then. I got some new cowgirls last year that I haven't tried yet. frown I will be bringing them along and cast my arms off for the elusive musky.

If anyone has the gear and wants to fish for them, bring it along. I'd love to have the company in the boat.

    • Stayed in a Holiday Inn Express last night.
    •   Ok, well what color would he like? I got some left over rounded ones from the kids so he wouldn't stick himself even!
    •   Bahaha, was checking to see what the new slug for deer hunting maybe, also? 
    • PF - Sorry to let you down.  I see you are a slug expert!!!!
    • Sheesh.  I clicked on this from the recent topics page thinking there was a new deer hunting thread......  Get a spray bottle with a salt solution and give them a shower. I think water with Dawn soap might be an option
    • I am flattered fellas, but in rebs defense he did say " goodies" and not "goods" or he would have some explaining to do . between the different s.i.t.e.s.  were on I post no shortage of food shots ,so reb grab that scissors from leech lol. You pick up  a belly yet moon lake?
    • wren chick sat on a chair on the deck for over 2 hours. cute little bugger

    • I think last year was probably the best/first year we should have gone for it at the deadline so no regrets on that one. We got Pommers at the deadline as well but he had some years left and we were able to resign him and overall he has produced for us so no biggy there either. I'm sure we all wish we could take back the Matt Moulson trade back, that was the only bad one that cost us a couple of 2nd rounders and he looked terrible, but again hindsight is always 20/20. The rest were all minor deals that didn't do much either way.    Someone will get moved at some point, we just can't fill out a team and or sign Grandlund & Nino without it, at least not that I can see. Sounds like we had a deal for the Canadians first but their guy was there so they kept the pick, no problem with Fletcher being patient on the trade front, might have to wait until some teams don't fill their needs via free agency before a move happens. 

       
    • anyone else have any issues with ChartInstaller? I last used it on my laptop a month or so ago and it worked fine. I am getting ready to go to North Dakota for a couple days and wanted to download some areas to my card that I hadn't before.   I removed the sd card from my Hummingbird Helix and put it in the laptop. Opened the CharInstaller program that was already installed and was prompted to update. I downloaded the new Chart Installer.exe file and no matter how many times I download it, reboot and retry install etc it will not install. I just get an error "There has been an error. Unknown Error upacking file C:/Program Files (x86)/Chart Installer/nwjc.exe   So while doing the upgrade I lost my desktop icon with no software to update my chart. I understand there is a 1 year subscription but I just got my navionics+ and put it on this card last October.   Any ideas?
