Saturday Camping

14 posts in this topic

If the weather is decent(it looks like it will be)...

I will be going out of Shakopee on Saturday night and camping with my 11 year old and 3 or 4 of her friends for her birthday.

I asked her what she wanted to do for her birthday and I was expecting "Wallyworld Dad", but instead I was surprised that she wanted a repeat of last years camping trip with her and her friends......works for me (cheap and I get to fish).

If anyone would like to come out and hang out on the sandbar with us and sit around the fire just let me know (other kids are welcome). Shoot me an email if you want details on location. Otherwise you can't miss the RiverPro full of "tweens". There will be some fishing getting done as well. I get to put out 4 or 5 lines ya know.

Well looks like 6 in the boat for Saturday for me. My daughter and 4 friends. We have three tents, sleeping bags, food, cots, lawnchairs, drinks, etc.

Now I know why I got a bigger boat. Last year it was pretty tight in the 16 foot lund. Should have no problem this year.

Maybe if you catch a nice big slimy flatty you can bottle some of its slime for a sensual massage when you get home!

    • It's a female Bigfoot,  silly.
    • You can save the mapping data on an SD card. In order to create a map you will need the Zero Line Card. You will take the SD card and plug it into your PC. Down load the map data into the zero line software. The software than creates the map and uploads it to the zero line card. It is typically recommended to use an SD card for the data as once the zero line card is full of either maps or map data another card will need to be purchased.
    • whats a samsquatch?  lol
    • Nope....don't need friendseyeguy54..... It was a darn samsquatch!
    • Way to get him out MM!  I'm sure he appreciates it.
    • I believe some units come with maps of some lakes but probably wont have any real detail as far as contour lines.  I think most will have a map of the US but when you zoom in you wont get much for detail on lakes and If they do contours will probably be 5-7ft apart.  If you want to put data on a card you will need a zero line card for mapping. About $150 i think.  8 hours should give you quite a bit of mapping.  Best would be to buy from a retailer so someone with knowledge of the product can show you how to run it.  You might be able to take some snap shots of sonar and put on a blank card but don't think you can map with it. I would get a Lakemaster card for the area(s) you want to fish.  Worth every penny.
    • Turkey season is over for my nephew!! It was a long season with many hours spent in the blind. He seen more turkeys then ever before and had a toms close enough to grab. It is going to be nice to sleep in. Until fall turkeys!
    • Heading up to Devils in a couple weeks and again later on.  Doesn't look like a lot of activity on here.  Tryng to get an idea whats happening before I go.
    • I have been out the last two days locally and haven't set the world on fire. Caught a few each day, but fish have been scattered. Lake is loaded with curly leaf mats this year, so that hasn't helped things. Once that starts dying and weather warms up, things should pick up.
    • Nada for me today. Had some hens come in to give my decoy some company today, but no toms. Sorry I wasn't able to help out on the scoresheet this year. As always, learned some stuff that will make me better next year.
