needing a 4th for Canada, '09

8 posts in this topic

we are looking for a 4th guy for Canada fishing during the 1st week of June, 09. Our usual guy will not be able to make it this year. We fly out of Armstrong, Ontario. I travel from western South Dakota and meet up with 2 others in the Albert Lea area and drive from there. If interrested contact me, GRNKPR @AOL.COM. There are a few cans and can nots.

thanks for the replies, fellas. About the only "can not" is alcohol. Us 3 don't drink besides it takes up weight on the float plane. 100 pounds per person. Two of us smoke and one "dips". A guy should be in reasonable physical condition. The portage lake is a pretty easy 15 minute woodland trail walk but, we do fish pretty hard all day long. Two of us are in thier 50's, I'm in my mid 60's. We are on two lakes, Deardon & Lavoie. We eat really good so any diet restrictions could present a problem. Ya hafta be able to operate a outboard motor, 12 foot Lunds with 9.9HP Mercs. As far as costs are, the outfitter's fee last year was 1298.00, US. That includes modern cabin, boat/gas and float plane, either an Otter or a Beaver. Misc costs averaged 270.00 which was gas, food, gratuities, leeches, overnite stay before flight out morning. It's a 7 day stay. Meals along the way are pay as you go. Gas from south central Minn is split. It came out to about 100.00 each. So a guy can figure around 1600.00 not including your license which is 35.00, I think. Walleyes and Northerns are all that are in the lakes. 15- 20 pounders are not unusual. The web site where we go is "Northern outposts". We travel from New Richland, Minn thru Duluth and cross at Grand Portage. A 12 hour drive to Armstrong. Best to have a passport and no felonies, including stateside DWI's. I am not a commercial operator, just lookin for a 4th fisherman. my number is 605-393-0646 or 605 430 8513.

aw heck, Tony. I fully understand the $$$ thing. To be brutally honest I get "spenders remorse" about it sometime too. But, I've learned over my years to never count the money ya spend on vises or hobbies....LOL. Yes, I've really gettin hyped up about the Winnie trip. We are gonna change arrangements this year because the facilities at Dixon Lake have kinda gone down hill since it was sold off 2 years ago. So we are gonna stay at Wlliams Narrows which will save alotta time and mileage haulin the boat back and forth and loadin/unloadin everyday from Dixon to Winnie. Thanks for the call the other day. We had a nice conversation.

Pac

    • It's a fat chick too! Nice pictures eyeguy!!
    • Stayed in a Holiday Inn Express last night.
    •   Ok, well what color would he like? I got some left over rounded ones from the kids so he wouldn't stick himself even!
    •   Bahaha, was checking to see what the new slug for deer hunting maybe, also? 
    • PF - Sorry to let you down.  I see you are a slug expert!!!!
    • Sheesh.  I clicked on this from the recent topics page thinking there was a new deer hunting thread......  Get a spray bottle with a salt solution and give them a shower. I think water with Dawn soap might be an option
    • I am flattered fellas, but in rebs defense he did say " goodies" and not "goods" or he would have some explaining to do . between the different s.i.t.e.s.  were on I post no shortage of food shots ,so reb grab that scissors from leech lol. You pick up  a belly yet moon lake?
    • wren chick sat on a chair on the deck for over 2 hours. cute little bugger

    • I think last year was probably the best/first year we should have gone for it at the deadline so no regrets on that one. We got Pommers at the deadline as well but he had some years left and we were able to resign him and overall he has produced for us so no biggy there either. I'm sure we all wish we could take back the Matt Moulson trade back, that was the only bad one that cost us a couple of 2nd rounders and he looked terrible, but again hindsight is always 20/20. The rest were all minor deals that didn't do much either way.    Someone will get moved at some point, we just can't fill out a team and or sign Grandlund & Nino without it, at least not that I can see. Sounds like we had a deal for the Canadians first but their guy was there so they kept the pick, no problem with Fletcher being patient on the trade front, might have to wait until some teams don't fill their needs via free agency before a move happens. 

       
    • anyone else have any issues with ChartInstaller? I last used it on my laptop a month or so ago and it worked fine. I am getting ready to go to North Dakota for a couple days and wanted to download some areas to my card that I hadn't before.   I removed the sd card from my Hummingbird Helix and put it in the laptop. Opened the CharInstaller program that was already installed and was prompted to update. I downloaded the new Chart Installer.exe file and no matter how many times I download it, reboot and retry install etc it will not install. I just get an error "There has been an error. Unknown Error upacking file C:/Program Files (x86)/Chart Installer/nwjc.exe   So while doing the upgrade I lost my desktop icon with no software to update my chart. I understand there is a 1 year subscription but I just got my navionics+ and put it on this card last October.   Any ideas?
