We are glad to help. Keep posting and asking questions.

If your'e thinking about trolling cranks this Fall for Eyes, check on the Mille lacs fishing report. Probably starting in the next week or so,(and carrying on into Nov). you will see a ton of questions/tips that will work on any lake. It is worth your time to check this out grin

Thanks rodmaker!

i will be checking into trolling cranks a little more because my dad and i don't troll them too much becuase we have no clue on what to use.

Basically you are trolling / casting shallow water 2-12 ft or so. Using husky jerk-baits 10's 12's, maybe 14's. Some popular colors, clown, firetiger , perch, purple perch, tenn. shad,rainbow .

Also you will probably be using Shad Raps. Sizes 5 & 7's.

There is a book called Precision Trolling that tells you how much line to let out for a particular crank bait. It takes alot of the guesswork out.

That was very short , and you will see in the next month or so how many anglers do this. It's a blast. grin

I do the same for spring walleyes. Some days its almost to easy catching them on raps.

oh thanks.

Could you any of you give me some ideas on where to find when the current speeds up on a river?

or some good places to look?

It sound's to me like you just asked how to read moving water. This is an important skill to cultivate but one that's a little difficult to explain to someone that hasn't learned it yet. I'll try to do my best. The next time you are out on a river, spend your time scanning the surface of the water carefully. You will probably notice certain area's where the smooth surface of the water is interupted. That mean's that just above the swirl or ripple's that you see, there is a rock or boulder or an ol;d tree limb on the bottom that is causing the disruption. That's a good place to start looking for some fish that will probably be holding nearby. The fish are not going to be holding out in the stiffer part of the current. They will always be looking for some slack water to hold in, which enable's them to fart out and snatch any juicy looking tidbit's floating by in the current. Fish would have to expend too much energy feeding if they spent all their time in the fast current so that's why they always look for some slack water. A certain amount of slack water will always be found behind any obstruction on the bottom or laying in the water. A good example would be a tree that had blown down and was laying in the water. These are a dead giveaway and usually easy to find. Another way you can read the water is to study the direction's a river flow's. For example, if you are drifting downstream and the river curve's to the left, be sure to check the outside part of the curve because that's where the deeper part of the water will probably be. Always check the outside part of any curve in the river. Well I hope I don't have you completely befuddled YFG. If you have any more question's, don't be afraid to ask! That's what Auld Phart's like me are here for, eh? laugh Good luck and good fishing! grin 1DIRTBALL wink

Verry well said 1DIRTBALL. The things a person forgets when you dont use them often. Its awsome to have people like the FMrs, as you are, to refresh our memories and to teach the new stuff to us also

    • I get that, not the point, or i wouldnt have posted in the first place. How about he is stubborn and wont wear a life jacket and instead of freezing in his old deer hunting garb a pair of new outerwear designed for ice fishing would be great and as a bonus add safety?
    • You were definitely against it.  BD not.   And, as the old joke goes, it is a matter of price.   If they can get jobs for 700 bucks a year subsidy per job, might well be worth doing.  On the other hand 200k per job or whatever it really is seems too expensive.     But if you are one of the purists, then oppose everything.    I'm not that doctrinaire. 
    • I thought it was worth mentioning that I;ve found great mounting boards and mounting ideas from checking the catalogs of some taxidermy supply page and catalogs. 
    • I get being concerned about the ones you love, that's aways a good practice, but it seems like no matter how well I try to educate my wife on ice safety and my precautions regarding it, she still thinks I'm going to die.  If they have $400+ to burn, so be it, but I've compromised by saying I'll wear a life jacket out the first time or two.  Seems like a more economical solution to me. 
    • I agree with Hawg and Sea Hage. This is a convection heater and heat rises through the top vents. At 15k BTU the area where you put the fan will reach 300+ deg. f. and deform the fan blades as they are made of plastic. Put the fan at the bottom as suggested. Your main objective is to get hot air circulation through the house. The floor will usually be cooler due to the holes but with the fan blowing at the bottom cold air is returned at the bottom of the heater through circulation. My house is same size as yours. I have a 9k BTU Dura Flame convection heater and tried several fan configurations. I did burn up the fan blades when installed as in you pic running at about 7k BTU. I than converted it to a forced air with air flow fan control using temperature controlled relays. The burner I posted earlier is from that heater where I increased the BTU to 12k. The temp in my house is very consistent floor to ceiling and operates same as my home furnace. May be a bit of overkill for what your looking for but really works well with great comfort at any outside temp and wind.   The bump  on the air duct has 3 four inch compute fans to maintain. Behind the white framed box I put a 4 speed auto fan for fast warm-up I turn off when warm. Runs at 12.5k BTU. The pipe duct going to the door I added this fall to heat my attached flip. Cold air return is opening below the heat chamber and at the auto fan.   When I am not in the house and want to keep it warm, I turn off the temp control relays and open the door to the original convection and turn the heat down.  
    • I have a Crossfire II 4-16x50 on my .308 elk rifle and I love it. Great scope, very clear and bright and Vortex quality. I have not had a single issue with it and the Crossfire is on the budget end of their glass. I've great reports from those with the higher end scopes. I wouldn't hesitate for a second. As far as which one to choose, I find the 50mm scope a little big and heavy. You'll likely have issues mounting to an AR due to its size. Mine had the benefit of the barrel taper allowing for the larger lens to fit. If I had a flat top like an AR it wouldn't fit as well. 
    • This is a post on the low flame issue that was brought up awhile back along with a question. As most said the low flame is normal and says so in the manual. I just picked one up, a used one. Hooked it all up and had very minimal flame. I have several of these units in rental houses so I am able to compare. The unit I just picked up is an abnormally low flame. I took a little square head bolt out of the black pipe that goes directly into the burner and blew it out. This was a mistake as at this point I can not get the burner to light. Ok now I need to get to the burner. I took apart the unit and took the burner out and blew it out real good then reassembled the unit and wa-la great flame and great heat, better then my newer units.   Now for the ? part of my post. I am having a 10degree drop in the temp before the unit starts back up. My other shacks are not much better but a little. Anyone have any experience with this issue?
