Teresa - the boat is always ready. We had it out yesterday and drowned some of the leeches leftover from Mille Lacs. Thanks Barb!!!

Hope - find your fishing and camping gear first. You know that's most important.

Does anyone really want to get together the weekend of August 16th? We need to firm some things up and pick a place. I'd love to get out there and fish.

What is everyone doing this 4th of July weekend? Any big plans?

I am definitely up for something on the 16th! I am going to do some research on probable lakes, slot limits and etc. I say if we can't all make it still go and maybe some of the ones who missed the first one can go. If Hope can get some time off we could hit the Park Rapids area, if not maybe something in the Alex area? I am up for a September weekend at Leech too.

After this August and with a possible (probable) job change and more than likely NO weekends off, I'm up for the August 16th weekend!

Great news you are all interested. August 16 sounds like a go - just need to find a lake and campground.

We still have some time to nail down a date for Leech Lake. I heard on `CCO tonight that fall walleye fishing (September) should be great.

Barb, how are you doing? I hope it's nothing serious. You have my email if you want to shoot me one.

16th.....I'm in. Hope, you'll have to let us know if your place is an option so if not we can jump on something else. No pressure here girl, just VERY excited to do it all over again.

The fishing and camping stuff was moved 1st and put into the closet that will be just for the fishing and camping stuff. That was the most important stuff to be moved. I tossed out a lot of other stuff just because I did not want to move it but none of it had to do with fishing or camping. I would never do that.

For the 4th I will be at the cabin with the family in Park Rapids. I have to work until 4 on Thusrday but then will leave straight from the office and hope that my out of the way shortcuts still have not been found. I will then fish all day Friday and have a party to go to on Saturday. Fish as much as I can on Sunday and then head back Sunday evening because the boss has all next week off which means overtime pay (yea) but overtime(nooooo)

Hope you all have fun.

Hope

    • We live in some sort of Bizarro world now - Sarah Palin calling Trump sinfully stupid.     Here's another one from Ann Coulter, who literally wrote a book "In Trump We Trust"    
    • You do realize that if the taxes were done that way, the cities would get $2.53 billion richer, and rural areas would get $2.53 billion poorer. The 7 county metro pays substantially more taxes (nearly 2/3 of the states total) than the other 80 counties in Minnesota combined, but only receives roughly half of the state expenditures.   Sorry to break it to you, but rural America is not fiscally solvent. Those citiots you speak of are bankrolling the entire country. It's easy to see on this chart: more urban states are to the left (givers) and more rural states are to the right (takers).  
    • I tried to purchase the screws yetti uses from Fastenal who is their vendor for the screws. They are only sold in large reels designed for a self loading screwgun. I finally called Casey at Glacial lake docks where I purchased my yetti and he sent me out the amount I needed. They work great to add additional fir strips. The plastic used to tie them together comes right off as you screw them in. Hope that helps. 
    • Sorry...was wrong on the specs.   Manufacturer is Core Ice.  It was 1450# for a 12' and 1250# for a 8'.  
    • I believe you want to use a zinc coated or galvanized steel according to the charts.  I'm sure someone will come along to correct me
    • In the back room there is a company that is using bonded foam panels (similar to garage door panels, but really clean looking), and had weights of 1250# for a 12' and 1450# for a 16'.  Aluminum trailer frames that could convert to a skid frame.  Can't recall the name.  I'm sure they were spendy, but I can see a concept like that going somewhere for the hardcore fishing crowd.   Yetti, Firebrand, Big Bite, and Glacier all had really nice display models.      Lots of campers (disguised as fish houses) out there at prices that make me want to jump into the business.  I was in two different manufacturers houses with prices well over $30k that had wire nuts for connections.  That is going to be a fun adventure for someone 2-3 years down the road when they find out their manufacturer saved $15 on their wiring.           
    • Thank you for all the help!  Ended up going with the Marcum VS485C.  After some research, there were a few other Marcums that were on the list (825 & 625), the Aqua Vu HD, and the Pan Cam.  The mini cams from all manufactures weren't what I was looking for, but they are cool and do have their place.     After seeing everything in person, I think the Aqua Vu HD had the best camera/screen.  The Marcums were a little bit behind, but the 825, 625, 485, and Pan Cam had similar real life clarity.  The 485 won out because of the $300 price point vs the others at $450-700, and was almost identical for resolution, other than the HD.
      I honestly think these cameras are all about 5+ years behind in technology in comparison to the broader camera/tv screen market.  Running off a 7-9ah battery is probably one of the limiting factors.  Another may be the cold.  The main reason (IMO) is that the manufacturers are hoping they can incrementally rape us by trickling out technology each year, similar to the computer manufacturers of the 90s/early 2000's.  For the price of a middle of the road underwater camera, I can buy a Chinese made 50" TV (these all have Chinese made 5-8" screens) and a GoPro or Sony Action Cam (which is 10x's the picture quality).
