Weekend plans....

19 posts in this topic

Wednesday night....close enough to be thinking about weekend plans.

I'm looking at a combo bass & 'ski trip to East/West Rush on Saturday, then picking one of a few metro lakes on Sunday for 'skis, either pure or tigers.

Little tip: Metro lakes are pretty empty when there's a Vikes game on!

What's everyone else looking at?

I can pick you up at the airport and we can head to 'tonka, as you'll fly in over it.......tell the Mrs you were delayed.

Cali trips suck, done it too many times, not a lot of Esox love in So Cal.....

Men's weekend golf tourny in WI, no fishing but plenty of drinking and partying. No complaints here it's one of the few weekends a year when I can get away with my buddies and throw down like we are kids again.

Good luck to those who get on the water.

North, somewhere, in the never-ending search...

After our weekends I have to go back to the work schedule just to get some sleep. If I was only 10 years younger I could probably get by on 3-4 hrs a night like I used to!

i think i'll go down to northfield on saturday and shore/wade fish. theres a little spillway dam just below water st. downtown. take as many minnows as i want and still run out pretty much everytime. catch a mess of every kind of fish too, carp, white bass, crappie, flathead, channel, sauger, walleye, northern, muskie on occation, suckers, nice smallies are aplenty, and other fish too. i use lures also. place is amazing for numbers of fish, and there's some real decent ones if i get them before a smaller one grabs on.every cast is at least a hit... only drawback is the water is a good 15 feet or so below, lol. but the water should be shallow enough i can go in the water at 2nd st. and walk down (up but down at that point), kind of weird walking south going upstream., and fish from under the water st. bridge. who knows maybe i'll see my old buddy ''huge snapper'' again. head looks like a freakin' tree trunk. sometimes he pops up a foot away and says hi. that's always fun. anyway i'm in for some action this weekend, good luck everybody.

I will be fishing Ottertail and Becker Counties Sunday through Thursday while I wind down the lake place for the season. Probably have an empty seat a couple days. Holler if anyone in the western part of the state want to beat the water into submission. copterjohn@gmail.com

Work frown

September is a washout for me. My truck was at the body shop the last week from getting rear-ended= no tow vehicle. Then a week straight of 12 hr shifts followed by a 2 week elk hunt in Idaho.

Will hopefully be hitting Miltona sometime this weekend. Daughter has a tennis tournament all day on Saturday, so with any luck, it will be done early enough to try and sneak out for couple of hours on Sat. If not, have to try and do it on Sunday before the work week starts again.

    •  I use a Digger mount on my ATV and sled.  Its fast and easy.   I'm on the ice everyday testing and tweaking Nils blades. I rack the auger on every blade change and some days that could be 20 times so for the me the Digger is exactly what I need.  The clamp on the Digger makes fast work of securing the auger and removal.   The height of the Digger frees room on the rack for more gear.      Once in a while we'll take my buddies ATV out fishing.  Hes got no auger rack so we'll bungie the auger to the ATV rack. It works but it makes me appreciate the Digger rack all the more.   Any rack would be an improvement there.   In the past guys have posted their homemade racks and I hope they do so again.   
    • Currently have a couple empires. Most likely toss one of them in. If I go with a furnace I'll use a small plug in step down transformer 120v AC to 12DC. They are cheap as hell basically an oversized cellphone charger.
    •   You realize the only ones taking Calexit with any seriousness are conservatives. Which means conservatives are the ones falling for the Russian propaganda. Liberals say it sarcastically because conservatives think the country would be better off without the "coastal liberal elites" (even though California pays in $405 billion in federal taxes and receives only $344 billion in federal spending, meaning the rest of the country would be $61 billion poorer without California).
    •   As in the one that lets me use his cabin for Turkey and Deer hunting!
    • So Bear, please describe what your policy on those drugs now banned would be, in as much detail as you can.     I am really wondering what the alternative envisioned by the "stop the war on drugs" folks is.      
    •   Bear, I explained why we are stuck with the two party system.   If you don't like the two we have, you need to "pull a trump" and take over one of them.     Good Luck. 
    • Actually only one species of bumblebee so far.     I have no idea how one distinguishes the species of bumblebees.   
    • If this is your carb # 6 is the drain screw   http://www.marineengine.com/parts/yamaha-outboard-parts/1997/30/30ELHV/620301630004
    • I would suggest using non-oxy gas also!
    • I highly doubt it needs carb kits if only sat that long. Draining the carb bowls and spraying carb cleaner in there can clean things up a lot and loosen sticky floats. Should be a main jet on each carb you can pull to drain carb bowls and spray into and clean jet. Put in fresh gas with seafoam in it and new plugs and it will probably run. Impeller is a pretty easy job to. Should be able to find a video on u tube on how to do it. I would drain my carb bowls on my old 115 2 stroke every spring and you would be surprised at the slimy stuff that came out of them sometimes and that was just sitting over winter.
