The less I come on here the faster the season comes. We have 5 sites this year total for 2 guys. My buddy got one last year and this year I get first shot. He just got his rug back Sat. and it looks sweet!!! Tried a new burn a couple days ago and smelt really good and sweet. Will try that if nothing else works. Couple of our spots had good sign (scat). So we will see what happens.

I can't wait! One week to go! It never fails though. It has been cool all year and now that baiting is about to start, they are saying that it is going to get much warmer. Oh well. It is always worth the heat and the bugs.

Start out with a decent amount, enough to get them to start coming in. I don't know...100 lbs at the most, less if you have close access. Once your bait starts getting hit then start putting less and less out there to create competition for the bait. I would check 3 times a week if possible. Check every couple of days

Everyday,and enough to get a good boar to claim the site.

Not one to use the same stuff everyone else toss's out or for putting less and less if you have competition around.

Like seeing all the corn in the scat at my baits since I don't toss corn I know they are not feeding enough elsewhere. Once they start marking trees I know its time to drop a trail cam.

I have pics of multiple bears at a bait all at once during shooting hours.That ends once a good boar stakes claim tho.If you bait regularly same time, he will listen for you to leave and saunter in.

IF your in a good area nature seems to provide all the assistance you need....

Wednesday can't get here quick enough. I wish my clients would pick their mounts up TODAY......

Area 51 on here. We went a up a few weeks ago and the sign is amazing. My party is hunting with a couple rookies this year and it is very exciting. It is pretty cool to see newbies get really pumped. I sure hope they know what kind of work is coming their way. Good luck to everyone out there!

    • I am interested in what this cough muffler looks like
    • Looks like a lot of rocks.  Could be some fish laying on the bottom.  I look for separation between the object and the shadow.  After I get more acquainted with my new unit i will try and post some shots
    • Its a whole new world down there with SI and DI.   After you learn what the picture is showing you,  you'll wonder what took so long to get it   I was a Lowrance guy for years and made the switch to H'bird this year with the new Solix with Mega chirp.  Very happy with it so far.  Amazing clarity and images.

    • Back to the original reply- which one and which size? http://www.homedepot.com/p/Basement-Watchdog-Emergency-Battery-Backup-Sump-Pump-System-BWE/100055241   Amperage (amps) 6.5   Or, if you want to be serious then install a few of these bad boys. I call it the Mother Of All Backups or MOAB for short.   https://www.sumppumpsdirect.com/SUMPRO-SUMPROGOLD-Sump-Pump/p2565.html  
    • Has anyone been on Clear yet this season? Thinking about heading that way in a few weeks to try for some walleye and yellows. 
    •   Well wasn't cheap but you got fixed and it would have been a real mess if she blew out on the lake.
    • Congrats looks like a beautiful and productive lake! Nice work. 
    • Ended up being the clutch dog and reverse gear were wore out... 550 for parts...I almost ended up getting a whole new lower unit, but a buddy was able to find the parts...The shop said they discontinued the parts Yada Yada Yada, but some shop in Hackensack was able to find them I guess...just want the dang boat back ha...
