I have a new name for my boat

You know you should be charging a finder's fee for putting those guys on fish. You should be able to collect about 15% on their total KOTC score on each fish and transfer it to your KOTC total. Heck, the way you are going you wouldn't even have to wet a line. You should also charge some incidental costs:

Netting their catch: 5 pts

Measuring and weighing their catch: 2 pts

Providing bait: 1 pt

Making an award winning video: 10 pts

Avatars: 1 pt

Of course, I want a portion of all points earned since I came up with this idea. I'll take 10% of your points as your sports agent. SHOW ME THE POINTS!!

Get to the back of the line Bub!

You need to start sliming your own rig up so you can start guiding. grin

Hey Dtro, I would raise my hand, but I have gotten pretty sick and lost my voice from last weekend. I feel like crudd!

Your boat is hot-to-trot this spring.

I know mines got to turn around soon!

Nice pics and fish guys!

I was keeping track of the fish in the new boat......but sadly lost track at somewhere over 15 by the end of the weekend.

Got a couple in Aanderud's boat and a couple in Fisher Dave's as well....

I am just glad to be able to get out as much as I am. Unfortunately I don't really think it's the boat.....it's just that I was on the water 4 to 5 nights a week.

LFC......you're always welcome in the new rig.

I won't be out tonight.......but tomorrow for sure somewhere. And then league on Friday.

BTW...when's the next Moore's contest??

Not sure just what happened. Back has been prety poor for years and maybe this past weekend planting food plots was too much. I planted the food plots on Saturday and couldn't hardly walk Sunday morning. The Orthopedic surgeon believes that I trashed another disc and its pinching the sciatic nerve along my spine. Since this has happened before, this time they may need to surgically repair the disc or disc's.

One has to have the extra strength to haul in those flatheads.

Well hopefully it is something that they can just bend you back into shape. If not you may miss out the Flatties this year eek . But there are worse things in life then that. You can spend more time with the Misses!

    •   No expert here either but I've talked to a couple.    Would your new, expanded slab be conducive to making the addition another zone or zones?  You could maybe run that expansion off different lines from the manifold above the slab so you don't have to route and pour over seams.   Definitely insulate below with GOOD insulation.  As mentioned, heat doesn't really rise the way we think it does; it moves to the cold and the earth will soak it up.   Heating your loop would be cheapest with a natural gas fired boiler, propane second.  Geothermal is expensive to put in so your payback on a new system is long.  Air source heat pumps are great until it gets really cold.  In the end, radiant in floor is the most efficient way to heat, but yes, it's slow to respond.  But if your toes are warm, you will be too.
    • I appreciate the response, I take nothing personally and didn't mean to be snippy in my reply. There are a lot of great comments on here and I will keep you posted on what I decide. Thanks again. 
    • Ice is quickly thinning on those northern lakes that still have ice with dangerous conditions on most lakes. The Wisconsin River is now open even in its northern stretches, but ice chucks can be seen melting along the river's edge. The lower Wisconsin River has finally dropped to near normal levels. Some walleye and brown trout are being caught on the Menominee River both trolling and angling from shore. Low water and cool water temperatures slowed the walleye run so far on the Oconto River. Anglers along the Wolf River have been starting to catch walleyes. A few sturgeon have been seen along the Wolf River, but warmer temperatures are needed for the sturgeon to start their annual spring spawning run. Walleye and sauger action on the Wisconsin River and Lake Wisconsin is slowly picking up.The steelhead season opened on the lower stretch of the Brule River last weekend and anglers reported good successPhoto Credit: DNRSpring steelhead fishing opened last Saturday for the lower stretch of the Brule River and there were lots of fishermen and fisherwomen on the river many who had a successful opener. .
    • I apologize if that came out wrong. The idea might very well be the best route to go. It's just that over the past 25 years or so I have seen many attempts to save a dollar that cost a buck and a half to do lol.    Here are my two cents. If you have a slab and you want to pour on top of it while keeping the same footprint that sounds pretty doable and could probably save some money if you don't have to change drain lines, run water, heat runs, electrical etc into the slab.   If you intend to tie into the existing slab and run zones of pex across the joint and have the new and old floors end up at the same elevation it still can be done. Some contractors will not want to mess with tying into and raising the elevation of the slabs and will prefer to start from scratch especially if you as the homeowner want them to warranty the finished product.  The critical thing would be to use enough rebar drilled into the old slab and have enough compaction and sufficient footings to make sure the slabs stay where they are without settling. That would make all kinds of problems with the pex.    Hopefully that response came across better.
    • It'll be interesting to see if the team plays a little harder in front of a different goalie. 
    • Hawg, I'm with you on this one !
    • Check and see if you have a video output on you device. You may be able to record to a digital device.
    • Just use plain old spray paint in a can. I've done it many many times and seems to stick really nice. Nothing special either I can't even tell you the brand because I have no clue. But as mentioned doing 2-3 light coats helps.
    • no expert here, but heat doesn't rise. heat radiates in the direction of least resistance (R value). warm air or water rises because it is less dense than colder air or water.  If you don't insulate you will be heating the ground under your cabin and the earth is a very large heat sink $$$. get some info from an expert in the radiant field as far as tube diameter, spacing, water temp, manifolds, length of runs, and so on. it varies on amount of windows (solar) ceiling height and room type (bed, bath, living area,  storage etc.). once you pour over the tubing you get to live with it. I did my own Home 15 years ago and got some good advise (wish I would have taken it all)
