Thanks Tim,

We should have been on that spot Saturday also but we out thought ourselfs but it worked out because we would have had a crowd with us on Sunday for sure if we won on Saturday. The kicker part is my buddy steve found the same fish and was only 30 yards off the fish and I told him to check shallow because I think they are getting pushed in from the pressure. They saw a few crappies and caught one so Kyle and I decided to hit it first thing in the morning and get our gills (bigger ones in that area) and then run and gun for some perch and crappies. Turns out the push in was the ticket and we had our limit of good crappies in less then an hour, I had our big fish then Kyle pulled through with a slammer that went 1.20 lbs that tied for big fish and won us an underwater camera with the hopper from Sportsmens Direct. We also won $175 (anglers put money in a pot) along with a new Jiffy propane auger. We went into the weekend saying we wanted to come out with the Championship and we pulled through. I will say this though, if it wasn't for Maki plastics we would have been fighting the bluegills all day, what it did was target the lager gills and allowed us to pull it away from the fish we didn't want (even the smaller crappies) without losing our bait. There was a couple of more tricks to getting only the crappies but we have to keep them close to our chest for the next tourney there. smile

    • 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.
