Edit: nevermind, my usual ride is going out too, but if you see a couple boneheads throwing for ski's out of a small starcraft, stop and say hi!

That 694/35E construction and traffic makes it tough, eh?

Good luck if you guys get out! I'd head out too with my ride, but MPLS to MG to WBL isn't doable........

CJAC, I am in champlin, here is a shortcut: go 610, to 35W S, then take county 96 east, it is maybe 2nd or 3rd exit after merging onto 35, takes you right into WBL, cuts at least 20+ minutes out of your drive time. I am totally guessing at distance, but maybe upwards of 10 miles on 96. Just know it is a lot easier doing that vs. the 694/35 mess

Man fish were going last night. We caught two muskies within 10 minutes of casting. Then proceeded to catch 5 pike and two REALLY nice bass. Not bad for only getting 2.5 hours out!

fish were active, got a musky and a nice pike around 8lbs. The musky was around 36inches, how were the muskies you got?

One about the same, 35.5 and a 41. Had 1 big fish follow on a underutilized method...jigging a big rubber near the bottom in about 30 feet. Cranked it up real fast and this fish came STRAIGHT UP from the bottom after the bait and missed it.

Pretty funny at one point, we were changing spots and trolling about 5mph. I had a weagle on and was jerking/bouncing it about 30 yards back in the prop wash. "Man that would be hilarious if I caught a fish this way!!!" Not 10 seconds later a mid 30's pike just EXPLODED on the bait and got hooked. Surprised the [PoorWordUsage] out of us!

    • Wow...Ducks get Eaves from Dallas for a conditional 2nd round pick...pretty cheap rental IMO..where were the Wild on this deal...oh ya we don't have a 2nd round pick 
    • Update:     Put some fresh gas in, sprayed the carb valve with some cleaner and cleaned the filter.  Also adjusted the idle speed up a bit. Runs great again!   Thanks for the advice and help everyone! 
    •   Nope...I think that is an original Bear55 Quote but Yogi Berra would be jealous if he were still alive.   Agree on the Blackhawks...when the season ends they will probably be the favorite to win the cup IMO so it will take an upset by any team to knock them off...would love for the Wild to be the ones to do so....it is getting very interesting as the trade deadline and playoffs time approach!
    • Out here (Virginia) our lakes are dirty and warm, and from what I understand, saugeyes thrive in those conditions. Our walleyes are all stocked since very few of our lakes have suitable spawning habitat and there is little to no natural reproduction.   Really looking forward to catching a saugeye just so I can cross it off my list!

    • Funny, that is the same face I get when I think of people voting for a reality tv star in as president. Worse yet he is some kind of billionaire, like the general public should ever trust one of those guys in public office.
    • More like Yogi the Bear but if I stole his quote my apologies.  Have to get that Chicago gorilla off our back, don't care if they win 4 of the next 5 cups, we just need one and I will be a happy camper.

      I'm not liking that they found some decent youth to play with Towes, we need to pounce before they fill in their gaps with depth and scoring again.
    • I am up to 27 in ND so far.  Waiting for more snow to melt.  Cold weather and deep snow makes the deer really group up out here and makes for easy shed hunting, but is really tough on the deer.  The 4th pic is one from some round bales that the deer were destroying earlier this year.   The biggest I find year to year is generally around that mid 60" range.  And I found that one (first pic) in early Janruary.  So hopes of finding a bigger one this year is low haha.
    • The only Merc I saw in Belize was on a parted out boat 75ft from water. Otherwise it was 70% Yammy's, 15% Honda's, 10% Suzzy's and a 5% hodgepodge of Evinrudes, Tohatsu, ect....... 
    • I think I had a about a 2" lip.  I took (2) 1x2's the width of the door and nailed them together, and routered a 45 on the one side, basically making one of those threshold ramps above.  Also routered a groove underneath to hide my propane line.
