I saw the Thunderbirds when I was about 12 and it was pretty much the most awesome thing ever.

Nice shot, please post some more pics after the weekend.

I've seen the Blue Angels in Fargo and it was an awesome show. This weekends weather forecast is for sunshine, should be ideal. One memory occurs early in the show when a solo jet streaks across the crowd at high speed. Impressive jet power.

I can't make it this year. Hope some of you will post pictures of what you see.

The Blue Angels are awesome, we're fortunate to see them every year in Seattle. They put on a terrific show, well worth seeing if you get a chance even if the weather isn't perfect.

Not everyone is a fan though, some of these people are pretty tired of them and their practice runs.

Maybe it's wishful thinking, but I think this pilot was looking right at me as he made his pass, we were in a boat on Lake Washington so I think it's possible...

Very tight crop:

Well the Fargo Air show has come and gone, and I have a terrible case of sunburn on my shooting eye. I guess, looking through my 100-400 into the sunny sky can do that to a guy when snapping 8 gigs worth of RAW images. Hard to follow some of those guys they are so darn fast. I will post more when My eye heals a bit. It hurts something feirce.

The sounds of jets is a missed sound up here in north Fargo. When we had the F-16's, it was a common sound. Even though these are Navy jets, it still makes a lot of north Fargoans stop and look up to hear the sound of a jet again. I didn't stick around town for the show, but I get a little bit of a sneak peak every year the show is in town since I work up at the base. The F-18 just happens to be my little sister's favorite of all the jets.

    • It might be better to buy a small second unit and link them.    My guess is what you want is not something enough people want to justify implementing.   Personally I have a hard enough time watching a bobber.
    • Welcome to the Forum.  What brand gun is it? Would help to pick choke tubes out.  Size 6 shot should do the trick, but I'm sure more folks will chime in here. 
    • I upgraded my electronics this year to a Humminbird Helix 10. I love it so far with the exception of not being able to split the screen into 4 separate screens. The max that you can do is 3. I would really like to be able to have the map, sonar, down imaging, and side imaging on the screen at the same time while trolling. I emailed tech support and they said it's not something that is an option at this time. Right now when I'm fishing I switch back and forth between map, sonar, and DI and sonar, DI, and SI. Is there anyone else that thinks this should be an option? I don't know see why you can't customize the screen to show whichever features you prefer instead of only using the preloaded options that Humminbird decided on. I have thought about emailing the company weekly asking if they have that ability yet but wanted to see if anyone else thinks it should be an option. 
    • I just purchased a used 20 gauge for my 14 year old daughter. I hunt mostly state land for pheasants. It is a 2 3/4 auto with interchangeable chokes. What size steel shot and choke tube would you recomend for her?
    • I just got back from a work trip to MI. I could not believe the difference in ground cover. We traveled all the way from Dearborn back to Bemidji heading through the U.P.  Most of MI had very little ground cover but WI was flush, green everywhere! I only got to check a few spots at rest areas but I never saw a thing. The ground was dry at most spots on the way home. I'm gonna go hit my spot tomorrow, hopefully it hasn't been picked yet!
    • love those when ya see them!!!
    • Took the kayak crappie fishing opening weekend and when calm always bring with the DSLR with. These turtles are glad the weather has finally consistently warmed up. I always find it funny seeing turtles stacked on top of each other and found a few along with multiple species which was nice.     
    • I was going to hunt wi this weekend but fishing musky with my fly rod is what I will do instead.  Good luck!!!!!!!
    • Anyone still at it?   not sure that i will get Isaac out anymore, will still ask these last few days.   Good luck everyone.
