Scored late last night, decent sized one. They're biting but for me few and far between.

I just talked to a buddy that went to one of my spots I have not hit this season. He and his boy and they are beginners landed 5 nice flats and missed many many more runs.

Looks like I will be hitting that spot by my lonesome tonight.

Anyone that wants to go alone, I have room for one.

1.5 hours from Roseville seems a little steep. If you would "cruise" down 35w then take 494 west over to 169 south I figure it would not take any more than hour. To get down to the Henderson launch from my house in Princeton I figure would take about an hour and a half. I could be wrong though. Some times though on-line map sites travel times are way off and i would say it would take only 45 minutes even driving right our the speed limit.

Unless you are coming from another location and not Roseville?

I sure would go Tom but our family trip plans to Wis. where canceled this weekend so my wifes family is over for dinner this evening.

Good luck tonight Tom and bag a big one!

Hey bassboy, nice job on the flatty. Did you get any pics? That's sweet. Did you try the outside bend you were contemplating? What kind of bait? Sounds like a good time was had.

    • You might be able to figure things out this week.  How big is your sump basket?  Is the  pump kicking in now?  Sit there for 15 minutes and count the number of times it cycles.  That should give you a decent idea on how much water is coming in.  Then figure out about how high the water has to go before it flows by gravity.  The spec for the pump will say something like that it can pump 2,000 gph at 10 feet of lift.  (the gph drops dramatically the higher it has to pump the water).  The answer to your specifics will give you an idea of how big of a pump you need.  If you match the size of the pump as close as possible to the amount of water your will face you can maximize the amount of time the battery backup will last.   Faced with this problem I took a standard boat sump pump and modified it so I could hook up a garden hose.  The I took an old shop extension cord and wired the pump so I could hook it up to a car in the garage.  So just prior to having Noah float by I could hook things up in the garage and be good to go for as long as I had gas in the car to pump up the battery.   Now that I am adult I bought a generator and wired the house to take care of things.
    • Inevitably at least twice each season I will leave the house, drive 45 minutes and walk some of my favorite grouse spots for hours and hours, seeing nothing.  Admitting defeat on that day, I will drive 45 minutes back home, only to find a covey of birds in the driveway...
    • Colonel E.H. Taylor Small Batch Maker's Maker's 46 Bulleit Glenmorangie Highland Single Malt   Copperwing Distillery in St. Louis Park has a nice smooth whiskey. Supposed to introduce a new bourbon in a couple weeks too.
    • Hey featherslayer, you gonna register that nice bird of yours pretty soon?
    • cool find!  sure looks like a Swainson's.  
    • Great info.   Thanks Steve!   Jim
    • Came across this hawk on Earth Day at the edge of town. I've been told dark morph Red-tail, dark morph Swainson's and dark morph Broa- winged. Anyway, it's a dark morph some kind of hawk.
    • Yes it was.  I really needed one more layer today.  Lots of jakes and hens seen by us this morning.  Still looking for the toms.  Hope you had more luck.
    • There are a lot of apps available for that. Search your app store for "phone tracking" or something similar. Many give you the ability to share your positions so you both can see each other live. You might even have an app already on your phone. For example, I have Lookout Security installed on my phone and it includes the ability to find the location of my phone from another phone or PC.
