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

    •   They're a little different because they had a boxed frame, which tended to collect mud and hold moisture, so it's tough to find an older one with a solid frame.  The frame usually rotted out ahead of the rear wheels.   http://www.carproblemzoo.com/jeep/wrangler/frame-rust-problems.php
    • Mostly body rust. Rocker panels, fenders and the rear corners. Not really any different than any pickup truck.
    • I am out in MN this morning.  Flock gobbling in the valley below me.  Going to start with my bow this time.  Have a few days to hunt.  Oh and Sutty is with me.  Set up across the field with one of his daughters.  Trying to talk him into picking up a youth tag for her.
    • Time to try again.  Not a sound yet. Next day and a half is about turkeys!
    •   They're definitely a nice rig for the backroads, and they hold their value very well if they're kept in decent shape.  The biggest issue with the older Jeeps, including CJs, is they are serious rusters - including frame rust.   Not sure if they ever resolved the rust issues or not with the newer models.  A buddy of mine has a Wrangler Unlimited, and he really likes it.  I think he has a little too much invested in it to use it for an off-road rig, though, so it probably qualifies more in the "fulfilling childhood dreams" category than a true bush buggy....              
    • Was doing some work in the woods today and found these. Of course I stopped and spent two hours looking for more, but this was it. Oh well, will probably be the earliest I've ever gotten to eat them.  
    •   I would definitely get the one with the Pheasant plowing attachment! Beats walking the fields!
    • Never getting rid of my Suburban. Just looking for a new toy for hunting etc. that I can drive down narrow dirt roads up north. Another reason why I would rather buy a slightly used one so I can use it without worrying about putting a few scratches on it. Those side by sides look like fun but you have to haul them around and cant drive them everywhere. And they just aren't built to take what a Jeep can. Always kind of liked the looks of Jeeps and being able to remove the top in the summer is nice to. Would definitely want a hard top to as the soft tops aren't to good for MN winters. I'm sure the newer ones have better heaters than the older ones as I remember back in the day guys were dressed like they were snowmobiling while driving their Jeep. And scraping frost off of the window to see.
