We used to put out a bug zapper at our cabin. We stopped because the zapping gets annoying, plus it usually doesn't take long before it needs to be cleaned to function again. Now we turn on the flood lamp, let em all fly and land on the cabin, and hit em with the Yard guard. We had 3 inches of dead bugs accumulated along the cabin at one point. If you get the right kind it'll stick to the siding and proceed to kill more bugs for some time.

But that was all in vain, you still get eaten alive if your unprotected at the wrong times.

In the town where I live, they are usually terrible during the summer. The city is so proud of them that when they sprayed them one night last summer, they forgot to mix the chemical with the water in the spray tank. I really think they did it because the city is proud of how big they grow here. I have always wondered why they seem to get bigger and healthier after they have been sprayed. Maybe they are using miracle grow in their mixture.

I recognize that webcam !! That east side of Mille grows 'em bigger than owls !! I use to keep my icehouse there and use it as a makeshift cabin in the summer. On some hatch days, the trees would have swarms of them in it, and the whole thing would be buzzing... The walleye's love 'em !

    • I am interested in what this cough muffler looks like
    • Looks like a lot of rocks.  Could be some fish laying on the bottom.  I look for separation between the object and the shadow.  After I get more acquainted with my new unit i will try and post some shots
    • Its a whole new world down there with SI and DI.   After you learn what the picture is showing you,  you'll wonder what took so long to get it   I was a Lowrance guy for years and made the switch to H'bird this year with the new Solix with Mega chirp.  Very happy with it so far.  Amazing clarity and images.

    • Back to the original reply- which one and which size? http://www.homedepot.com/p/Basement-Watchdog-Emergency-Battery-Backup-Sump-Pump-System-BWE/100055241   Amperage (amps) 6.5   Or, if you want to be serious then install a few of these bad boys. I call it the Mother Of All Backups or MOAB for short.   https://www.sumppumpsdirect.com/SUMPRO-SUMPROGOLD-Sump-Pump/p2565.html  
    • Has anyone been on Clear yet this season? Thinking about heading that way in a few weeks to try for some walleye and yellows. 
    •   Well wasn't cheap but you got fixed and it would have been a real mess if she blew out on the lake.
    • Congrats looks like a beautiful and productive lake! Nice work.
