Are you kidding me! Those are some big brookies! Did you weigh or measure any of them?

Those first three are salmon that they painted to look like brookies.

trapingaddiction/not to often do i weigh them,but i do measure a few of the bigger ones over 20".Here in nipigon you can only keep one if it is over 22", there is quite a few over 22" but you have to work for it .The river closes to brookies on the 15 of this month planning one to two more trips before it closes and an over nighter.

hoping to have more pic's before it closes,till next time Tim

Here's a "football" from an alpine lake in Colorado. The lake is lousy with scuds.

I haven't been there in quite some time Len. As you know I got started there on the Coaster restoration discussion. When that ended there just wasn't much else there to keep me interested. Looks like you've been having fun lately..

The upper river is awesome. A 15 mile boat ride would have put you guys at the Virgins. That's big Trout country for sure. How was the last trip of the season? Unfortunately I had to work on closing day. Same old story. Too much work and too little play...

    •   I would definitely get the one with the Pheasant plowing attachment! Beats walking the fields!
    • Never getting rid of my Suburban. Just looking for a new toy for hunting etc. that I can drive down narrow dirt roads up north. Another reason why I would rather buy a slightly used one so I can use it without worrying about putting a few scratches on it. Those side by sides look like fun but you have to haul them around and cant drive them everywhere. And they just aren't built to take what a Jeep can. Always kind of liked the looks of Jeeps and being able to remove the top in the summer is nice to. Would definitely want a hard top to as the soft tops aren't to good for MN winters. I'm sure the newer ones have better heaters than the older ones as I remember back in the day guys were dressed like they were snowmobiling while driving their Jeep. And scraping frost off of the window to see.
    • I went through the same thing. I had ATV's at first then bought an RZR. It was fun but honestly the quality for the price is pretty bad. You can go up to a Can Am but then the price is even worse. So a few years after I sold the RZR I got the itch again but then started looking at the Wranglers and ended up doing that. I bought a 2006 with the 4.0 and after that and buying a used 6.6' plow I was into it for less than 13.5k and can drive it everywhere.   I have the hardtop on mine. I just take it off in the summer and drive it when it's nice. IMHO it's the way to go but you need to watch out for ones that are rusted out. I take the doors off, the top off and drive around sniping gophers, head to the lake or just cruise around. I like the 32" BFG KO tires.     
    •   What's a big guy like you going to do with a little SUV?  Your still keeping the truck to pull that new trailer right?
    • Good luck, have fun and stay topside this time of year.
    • Did you have to sand in between coats of lacquer? I was going to use a pre catalyzed lacquer for a little more durability, but it seems like it would take forever to get in all of the grooves. 
    • Some of the older ones had a 4 cylinder. Think the new ones only have a 6 now.
    • White pine needs bud caps to survive.     DNR had this publication you might find interesting managing_woodland_deer.pdf   Here is another link.... from extension   http://www.myminnesotawoods.umn.edu/2007/04/minnesota-woodlands-and-wildlife-strategies-and-species/   Balsam fir and spruce are good if we ever have another bad winter....
