Kind of bummed, kind of happy.

Recommended Posts

I really don't know how to feel over this.

My boat for 2013 was dropped off this morning which should make me happy but it's new home isn't ready yet so I have to put it away until it is done.

I can't sit in it and play fishing while getting it ready, it's to cold for me to fish P4 but it IS here so I should be happy right?

Who all is fishing something out of something different for 2013?

head to the river

Way too cold for me to fish pool 4. Plus I do not have heated storage for it right now so fishing when it's below freezing is not really in the plans. That is part of the bummer equation.

My new rig for 2013 isnt nearly as nice, but it is the perfect rig for my family's needs. 2012 1850 Tyee w/ 175 Verado. Will give me lots of hours trolling out on Superior as well as hundreds of nights camping up on Rainy, Namakan and Kabetogama. I still have most of the rigging to do this spring (downriggers, VHS, rodholders etc) but that is the fun part! Gotta say tho, drilling that first hole in a new bolt is a tough thing to do grin

I have mine in the garage, but everyonce in a while I will hop in, tie on a jig, and try to hook my empty beer cans I throw on the floor, you know just some little underhand tosses. Soothes the soul just enough while begging for spring. cry

That bummed feeling will fade fast as spring aproaches. Very nice boat! That had to set you back a few.

Not nearly as bad as you think. I am pretty sure when my wife is done with the kitchen remodel thats going to end up being a bit more.

    • Yup.... 6 & 4 for Lead.... 4 & 2 for steel
    • I ended up framing my house, putting on the T&G , and then spray foaming back against the interior, which may be why I am not seeing any movement... I also used pine vs cedar
    • I agree with the guy who agreed with the other guy.
    • Just wait till they come up with the remote submarine drone with 3d high resolution camera that can see through algae and milfoil and transmit to your eyewear in 3d.   I struggle with properly tying a berkley knot......
    • I agree with rundrave. #4 early and #2 shot later in year
    • Yes, 5/16 T&G I installed last fall. I did the same, but I see this summer it's starting to buckle  
    • Adding a 4th wouldn't do much IMO. The map screen is already too small to be useful when screen is split in 3. I added a Helix 7 G2N to use as a map screen. Networked with other 2 units
    • I could always go and spend more money on an additional unit but some of it is like Floyd said. I have a hard enough time watching one screen. I have the app on my phone. I think that lowrance has the ability to split the screen into 4. I just can't believe I'm the only person who would like to see this but maybe I am. It may not be as big a deal once I get more familiar with the unit. Right now I like to look at all the screens to help discern what it is im seeing on the screen.  I appreciate the input!     
    • Males were on the beds last night on a lake here in the metro. Not my deal, so I let 'em be. Which means I didn't catch much at all compared to last week.   Oh well, be a couple weeks before the summer patterns start happening. Already a hint of cottonwood floating on the water though. *booooo*
    • I would agree with Purple.   Just add an inexpensive unit of your choice for the maps.   You could even use a cheap tablet with the navionics app on it for the mapping, if money was an issue.     You can buy a 7 inch generic (RCA) tablet for around 50 bucks.    A few bucks more gets a holder.
