yes i know im holding it hehe. she was not able to hold it up so i did. wish i would have been a little less excited when i had her take the pics with the the tape as you can see i missed the end of its mouth by what i would guess is at least 2 inches. also forgot to get the girth as i wanted to get her back in the water asap.

Apparently you didn't notice the J/K (just kidding) at the end of the other post. And I agree w/ the others, NICE FISH!

Yeah, that is at least 41". That isn't a Minnitaki fish is it? Back drop looks really familiar. Just got back from there and had a heck of a pike outing. 38, 37, and a 36" within 3 hours. Best day ever for me. Our group really got into some great pike fishing.

Wish I took pics of 2 nice pike we boated yesterday fishn for muskie but didn't want to keep them out of water. Forgot the net but one was about 37" n other one about 33" both was fat n healthy. They smashed twitchbait n crankbait with orange color... Also lost a nicer one due to flatten out hook.

Had a good Pike day last week on local lake fishing deep rocks for Bass using a DT-16. Caught a 34, 33, and a 26 inch pike as well as 3 nice bass all around 18-18.75 inches. those Pike just hit the DT like a truck. Nice fish and a lot of fun to catch and release. It's exciting to be able to boat a few fish in that 11-13 lb range in this area of the state. Feels goot to watch them swim away as well. Nice pics all... My camera kinda sucks. I'll see how the pic of that 34' turned out.

    • Well got the unit today first Impressions are I'm really happy with it...I like how the maps included have depth shading...The screen seems very nice...The only thing I don't like so far is the quick release bracket, I feel like I'm going to break it when I pop it off. The transducer is pretty darn huge, not sure if all side imaging ducers are like that or not...Overall very happy for $499, cant wait to get it on the water.
    • Hey you guys!...had to fly into Phoenix couple days ago to check on some golf stuff and while wandering through a big supermarket saw a display of Canadian pen-raised walleye.  It was 18.99 a POUND.   Can you believe that!?  A stinkin'  little 16 ounces of walleye for THAT much money. If a guy could put up with all that sloppy, soft wiggle-wiggle of a battle to boat one a guy could make a pile of money catching them.  Personally,  I'd fall asleep in a walleye hot bite.
    • What's kind of interesting is there were a few crab apples by my old work and they would eat some in the fall. But in the spring when they must get just ripe enough. It would be a pile on of Robins, Blue Jays, Squirrels and they would clean the trees in a few days. Like a good wine they must know when its time!

    • Hillary and whatever terminal illness she has did seem like a favorite fake news item for you, although I thought it was a close second besides that obama boner thing you really really wanted to see.

    • Shell is complete, had trouble finding a door luckily a guy had a camper door on hsolist that will be re-skined with the black .040 exterior siding.  The aluminum siding was supposed to show up yesterday, but dint for what ever reason and will be delivered on Tuesday.  Installed the bracing for 5 holes, HDPE on the skis will be in tomorrow to be installed hopefully next week also.  As you can see I built a ladder for the top bunk, I am assuming once the kids stop using it as a playhouse that area will be converted into storage as this is just a day house.  Any input would be appreciated.
