I run a garmin 12. In the rear of my boat I use the garmin mount, not too bad but needs improvement, in the really rough pounding stuff it can fall out. up front by my bowmount I have a ram mount, bulletproof unit, worth every penny in my book, unit is held securely, never had it come loose either. You can position it anyplace yo need to help avoid glare from the sun too... Good fishin! Paul

Diddo on the RAM! I have a ball joint on my ATV, snowmobile and boat for all year use, and the mount attaches to the ball mount(s). The best money can buy!

I picked up a couple of cell phone mounts on clearance ($1.99, were $29.95)from Radio Shack. The beauty of this mount is that it is rubber coated and utilizes a system that clamps the GPS (cell phone) in place. Pretty nice, helps keep me out of the Canadian waters

    • The past week has had me having multiple close calls and missing a brute at 45 yards.  Tonight I talked my dad to give it another try and there were birds in the field when we got there.  Birds ended up leaving as we tried to sneak in.  A short 20 minutes later they were back and we watched and worked the big group of toms and hens for more than 2 hours before we got one to commit.  Dad shot him with his 20 gauge at 48 yards,(this thing shoots an awesome pattern).  The 3 year old was down and only flopped a few times.   Nice 1+ inch spurs, 10" beard and heavy.  A good evening for sure!
    • Sorry to disappoint guys, but this tom was not my first bird of the season. Apparently that's part of the rules. The score won't count towards the team. I don't have any measurements for the jake I shot so we will have a zero from me.    At least my freezer is full. 
    • Way to  go 1957 !! Congrats!!
    • sugar is not a drug. 
    • Another good day today out on Superior ,,,, Had my first double and triple in the new rig today ,,, the day didnt start out with perfect weather but the fishing more then made up for it ,,, The mud  covers a lot of water but fishing the tea  colored water and edges of the mud paid off ,,, the cohos grew 5 inches  from eating this years smelt,,,, had some go 23 inches today 
    • Say no to drugs, like sugar.  Yes, sugar is a drug.
    • I won't be able to post the scores for this week until maybe Wed. so if someone else wishes to do so feel free to do it. In fact for the entire summer season I'm going to be pretty much hit and miss. So don't count on me the lake is calling and I have no computer there. My scores will drop like a rock unless luck prevails.
    • That should make things interesting
