July plans

1 post in this topic

Guys,

got a buddy coming up from FL in late July, originally from here. He's a world class fisherman, no kidding. Not sure yet if it's 1wk or 2 of fishing this year.

A teacher by profession and an asst. with FL F&W, all he does is fish. He comes up each year for a few weeks of fishing and visiting with family. This year we hope to get to a few new spots with the canoe and on foot. Hoping one of the fisheries biologists is coming along for the trip.

If so, we plan to try and hit a few "secret", walk in spots up north for bass, pike and trout. You guys are welcome for any or all the days on the water. We go out every chance regardless of weather unless it's a bad storm. Hope to get some night fishing in too. My boat's not ready and won't be, but the canoe is. Dan's one of us, though he's far beyond my caliber! We'll travel to fish with any of you and I'm sure you'll be glad to meet Dan.

He's good for trading trips too! Freshwater and shallow water Salt! He knows FL's the big chains like the back of his hand. Just got back from a trip to TN with the biologist. 3 guys, one week, well over 300 fish. Hope he can get to meet some of you! Email me or call.

Ray

    • Sonar works from above, cameras need to be submerged. What am I missing here?
    • I've also had good luck spray painting PVC.  Biggest thing I found is to do lots of light coats, the PVC makes the paint want to run in a hurry.
    • I believe you can do this with the Lowrance HDS 9 and above.
    • I'll go with another loss in overtime.
    • Calling a win tonight, it's going to happen!
    •   You'll probably run into plenty of "experts" among the experts, too...   Floor heat is nice, but definitely not the best option if you're looking for the best efficiency, since it is a slow recovery system.  If you were looking for efficiency and lowest cost, I would suggest looking into a mini-split heat pump to complement the gas furnace if you have off-peak available.   (Disclaimer: Not an expert either, but I have stayed at a Holiday Inn Express a few times.)      
    •   Same here. I have 3 of them. Use them in the SUV, Boat, Snowmobile, and Dual Sport bike. They seem to work better on my sled in the winter with no issues at all over my old ifinder which would eat batteries in the cold. They are discontinued but you can still find them out there on the List or bay once in a while. I like them as they are a crossover and can be used on the road or with a lake map which is the main thing I use them for. Wish they would bring something like it back.
    • Ridiculous... but it would work.  Sorry to offend, guess I don't get quite so fired up about concrete.
    • Concrete. Way easier to plow. My parents have a gravel driveway WORST THING EVER! Impossible to snow blow because of all the rocks always wet and muddy. Sure it's cheaper but in the long it's not worth the cheaper price. 
    • I have used a Lowrance XOG (no longer available) on my boat and on my snowmobile for years now with no problems with cold or speed of tracking. I use a Lakemaster card for Minnesota lake for fishing, a Navionics card for coverage in Canada and LOW for winter and summer fishing, and a Red Pine snowmobile trail map for riding. Have ridden at 30 below without any problem with the touchscreen, it is hooked up to sled power, so it probably is getting some heat, and I put it inside my jacket when I get off. I recommend that you do a little research on the available chips for where you are going because different manufacturers use different chips. My use pretty much limits me to Garmin, and expect to pay couple to $300+ for chips for where I travel.
