I will be on pipestone in the morning on jan 1, then over to manitou for the evening bite. Then I am going to meet the first group of the season coming in on Jan. 2 at the Dogfly parking lot. It it shaping up to be a good season, lets hope we get lots of good ice.

Superbee,

If you are in the area stop by.

I will be fishing on Pipestone on the morning of the Jan 1 with the group heading up to the cabin that day. You won't need to fish the evening bite on Manitou, unless you are just doing C&R(lol). See you up there, I will be fishing on the North end.

I have never seen any tracks in or out of their cabin.

Very nice Superbee. That really is one nice Esox Esox.

No, never been up in the winter. We usually come up, if I'm lucky enough to be asked, the first week in October or so for the Fall trip. One of these years we'll have to try a winter trip. Sounds fun.

    •   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.
