Nice fish, John. Congrats on the PB...and to think, on a night that you weren't even thinking of going out. Just goes to show, time on the water is everything!

The ability to skim over some sandbars sure didn’t hurt us last night. We ventured to a couple of spots that I would basically classify as prop unfishable.

Man I gotta get an RP (or equivalent).

Thanks guys. The forked whisker was pretty cool. Let's see if we can get that one again soon.

Nice hog WWG. A fish that was brought in for the Franklin tourney had the same type of wisker that split in two and his other wisker was missing. I went out with a friend Tuesday night from a proven shore spot and we got skunked. One run right away that dropped the bait in a snag. Otherwise dead sea from 9-12:30 so we called it quits.

Oooooooooo.... Could it really be....its the mythical Y whisker... How many others out there have gotten one with a forked whisker....

Dtro... that couldn't be the one from a few years ago could it?!?!?!

    • I'm getting pretty far ahead of myself, but I'm beginning to wonder if another trailer ramp spring would be the way to go for raising the back bunk.  I've never used one before, but I'm sure you can set the tension so it's well below the maximum and it wouldn't take so much effort to pull it down.  Just put up some guide rails and spring latches to latch it in the down position.  Any thoughts?
    • -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------             And.....you pay for it all.    
    • Well that sure "Trumps" anything else going around and around on in this site today!
    • Yeah you're right, my bad. Yes, the line is awful. 
    • It was a false start on the OL and another one could have been called on the 2nd attempt.  The OL is just BAD, probably the worst I've ever seen for a vikings team.  It seems like few teams put a high priority on the OL.  A good OL can make an average qb, wr, and rb look awfully good when it gives them time and opens holes.  A bad OL can also make a great qb, wr, rb look awfully bad.
    • OLE77, They did replace the valve cover when they did the STP treatment at 92,000 miles; it made no lasting difference.    delcecchi, I have the 5.3 engine.  I'm guessing I need new rings, that seems to be what everyone tells me.   Down2Earth, When I initially brought it in, Village told me they had never heard of the problem.  When I returned (I had then googled it and heard about the AFM and many, many people who have gone through this), they changed their tune and pointed the finger at GM as not letting them properly fix it.  What a joke.   I've attached a photo of the plugs I changed out last week.  This is now a monthly ritual for me.  Great, really looking forward to changing these out in my driveway this Jan.  Grrrrrr.
    • I bought 2 fans off Amazon for $18 each and there 110v. There 5"x 5" and about 4" deep. I was thinking about mounting them under the heater. Or would it be better to but them in a woodbox and mount on to?. They say there good for 69,000 hr of run time.
    • To bad we had an holding penalty that made us attempt it from the 7.
