      How to create an @mention - Click Here   07/16/2015

      You can use the @mention aspect whenever you want someone to be notified about a post or let them know you are talking about them. Type the @ symbol type in a couple "lowercase" letters pause then once the names pop-up either select or keep typing in letters to narrow down the list until you get the @mention name you are looking for. You can play a game so members can see how it works. If you want to practice or If your name has been @mentioned below you should see it in your notifications (upper right) and you then have to @mention one or two members who haven't been mentioned inthe comments section below. Let's see how long we can keep this going. Anyone who duplicates a name that has already been @mentioned loses. This is the first group to be @mentioned to get the ball rolling: @Borch @Scott K @Corey Bechtold @Matt Johnson @mrklean @eyeguy 54 @Finns @IceHawk @MarkB @Cliff Wagenbach @Wayne Ek

"Pike on theSt.Louis" (pics)

Recommended Posts

First day of the fishing season is here!...and not that bad!...I headed to the "Forbes Dam" on the St.Louis River to see what was biting....usually the redhorse and black suckers are in full swing along with some northerns and a few walleyes....the northerns were stacked up like cord wood this morning!...simply couldn't keep em off your hook!... grin...I know I caught and released probably 12 or so and the guy next to me probably caught and released 20!...other years I certainly get some northern action but this year simply unreal!...fun for sure!....nothing really big size wise maybe up to 5 lbs. or so but they really "slammed" the red and white dare devils!...and of course the suckers were hitting in between....even caught a sucker on a daredevil!...caught all these fish in about 2 1/2 hours...back in Hibbing by noon! grin

the northerns are really in there "thick"...if a guy likes northern fillets....this is your chance!.....oh!.....no walleys!....zip!...simply not in there yet!....apparently just to early and conditions aren't right for walleyes in any numbers...usually someone gets a few nice ones at the dam but not one was caught....but then again I was only there 2 1/2 hours....Warden was checking licenses....after he checked me he looked over my shoulder and started running (yes running!) up the bank after a "potential" not sure what happened there! grin

Ooh, you got some slimers. I detest touching the snotty toothy critters. However, they can be a blast to catch. Thanks for sharing your action. I'm a bit of a fair weather fisherman, so my time has not yet come.

Looks like a fun day Jonny! I'm really looking forward to some nice summer days and a boat on the water. Glad to see you had some luck.

    • We saw some good bucks this weekend but couldn't quite seal the deal on any of them...my son smoked his second one with the ML this afternoon after talking me in to going out when we should have been packing to leave for home...(: found a big deadhead this morning too...deer were super spooky but saw plenty...time to pack all the hunting gear away and focus on ice!! 
    • I know, you hear about them everyday in the News burning and terrorizing the good atheist folks of Belle Plaine MN.
    • Are the houses built on an order basis only?   How long did your build take from order to delivery?
    • The one I installed in my previous house was the same way. Like Tom said, be sure to watch the humidity levels. When they get too high you can start to get mold growth. I always watched the windows. When they'd start to get a lot of condensation on them I'd turn it down.   Be sure to check the filter at least once a year. I lived in town and still had to replace the filter every year because of buildup on the filter. When it would get clogged the water would pretty much run straight down to the drain in the bottom. 
    • Looks different to me, or probably just the light and shade difference.
    • I still planned to shoot my ML some, even not going hunting.  Pretty much out of primers and getting low on white hots so I swung into the Baxter FF on my way to Winnie for the weekend. They were completely out of primers and had just gotten restocked that day with propellants.  The counter guy said they went through a ton of ML supplies this year, owing the surge to scopes being allowed.  I bought some Buckhorn to try out and will have to get primers later. Anyone with a last day story to tell?
    • i think those jackknife couches are 72 inches but not positive, will check on that.  The back dinette bed would be almost 8 feet wide. Here are some more pics of the furnace, batteries, and hydraulic system under the couch.  Also the Biffy and closet in the front, the stereo system with Bluetooth, some USB charging ports next to it, cabinet for the satellite receiver with all connections tucked inside.  Pic of the outside 30 amp generator plug in and propane tanks.  Has lights over the tanks and entry door.  You can connect whatever you want to the tv, so yes a water camera would work on that.  Hoping to get on the ice next weekend!!  Good luck to all...
    • Meh, I can protect myself just fine with or without a $1000 rifle. My $100 Hi-Point .45 will make you just as dead as that AR. It's more than likely one of those crazy arse Christians that I need to protect myself from.
    • Yea, well down in Belle Plaine you got all those gun toting Christians to protect your ars!
