6 posts in this topic

Well where to begin. After seeing all the sweet pictures in this forum. I decided and went through with, and bought my wife (and me) the Rebel XSI. This digital thing is completely new to me and her, so I will be looking for some advise or articles to read in the near future. That is when I figure out how to turn it on. Its like a little nuclear reactor. I just want to say thanks to you guys who post good infomation what what you think or what you have dealt with, it made the purchase easier. thanks again. there will be pictures soon to follow.

Definitely!!! There are no dumb questions here. Often, for me, some of the questions that are posted here are very helpful reminders.

Canon has an awesome line of hardware and glass. You should feel very confident in your investment.

Remember, learning is half of the fun!!

Congrats from this corner as well! Just one thing I learned the hard way, and I've heard it said many times since then, be patient with your new purchase! Don't expect the camera to do all the work even if it has a lot of bells and whistles. The first two weeks after I had my first dslr, the only thing I could think was "how am I going to justify spending that much money when it doesn't take pictures as good as my point and shoot?" There is a learning curve and you'll be pleased with yourself and the camera when you learn to make it work for you. It's a great tool, and it will make you a better photographer as you hone your skills! Enjoy!

    • I've had it on a few different lakes and still the same result. I'm a tungsten jig type of person, thought those showed up better on the vex?? Bigger profile jigs show up better than small. Any type of jig is a in-out flicker. Been on some finiky fish lately,  used some very small jigs and they barely show up. I'll try the battery next! Thanks guys

    • It was doing bad under pawlenty?
    • I know I would  That bacon really looked good!!!
    • Word of caution !! Lake Superior will generate a east wind for days and the fish bite great. I think it has something to do with the air sinking out in the center and it pushes in all directions and in Duluth we get the wind out of the east.
    • This weekend I got a chance to use the 6" Nils with my Dewalt. That was crazy fast and had both of my brothers asking more questions about the whole setup. I believe the 6" cuts faster then my 8" Nils with the Tanaka motor and I thought that was fast.
    • Some possibilities in the St. Paul / SE metro area.   Joe's sporting goods in St. Paul Blue Ribbon Bait in Oakdale Ace Hardware in IGH   There is another bait shop off of HWY 10 in Newport, but I'm not sure if it's still there and google can't seem to find it.  I also seem to remember a gas station on Concord, south of the St. Paul Airport somewhere that has bait, but I just randomly ran into it one afternoon and I might be confused.  
    • Ya, me too.....they're extremely rare animals nowadays.. I searched (online) every hardware store, box store, Home Improvement, office supply store....zip. Only place that has them...Walmart. I suggest ya hit the used a bit and goodwill stores, they always seem to have a few. I'll keep my peepers open for ya for a good one if ya want, otherwise, get someone to order for ya off of Amazon Prime.
    • Hey everyone, had the opportunity to get out with my new jiffy 4lite propane, an Ion, and the Clam Drill plate kit (drill plate/gear box/auger with 18v Dewalt).  I was with 25 guys and I was the only one with augers. So it was the perfect time to try out all three and see what was preferred. In the end the ratings would be:   Jiffy 5/5 Ion 4/5 Clam 4/5   The propane was faster and cut the lake like a hot knife on butter. The Ion and Clam were not as fast, but were still able to cut plenty of holes without any issues. The batteries on the clam did not last as long, but if I were to buy higher amp batteries that could be solved. The Ion was slower than the other two but was consistent and did cut a lot of holes.
