Deitz, you must of missed the first pic. It shows a quantum energy spinning reel, now he may not of been using that reel but Im guessing he was. There for it would be my quess of a soft plastic lure of some sort and not JnP.

I will guess a Tube also.

I'm here... Sorry was busy the last couple of days... First off thanks guys it was a great morning and loved every minute... I did make it out yesterday morning as well.... tried a different lake though. I caught 4 within the first 10 minutes a 19" two 18's" and a 17" all in the reeds, but that ended as fast as it started.... So I moved to deeper water, no bass but did catch quite a few nice sized pike...

Now to answer the questions:

Bait- the only thing these bass would hit was a black and silver spinnerbait. I started with a buzz-bait then switched to a Jig then switched to a senko...nothing. Finally tied on a spinnerbait thinking I'd at least find a Pike... Well that was the secret, in fact the 19" was caught where I previously fished with the jig...I even switched back to a jig thinking it was the weather that turned them on but still nothing... I love it when bass prefer spinnerbaits...

water temp: was 59 degrees on the lake I was fishing.

The fire extinguisher: Funny story, this spring I had a build up of ice on the cover of my boat. Well the weight of the ice made the cover sag. So I thought I would take a shovel and scoop the ice off... That was stupid, I ended up breaking the top of the fire extinguisher and it expelled all of it's contents into my covered boat.... I had a quarter inch of powder every where in the boat... So I've since moved the extinguisher, I just haven't removed the bracket from the old one...

As for the bobber and jig... Well I only clean my boat in the spring. So that is just junk collected from this summer hence the empty bottles also grin

    • I'm getting pretty far ahead of myself, but I'm beginning to wonder if another trailer ramp spring would be the way to go for raising the back bunk.  I've never used one before, but I'm sure you can set the tension so it's well below the maximum and it wouldn't take so much effort to pull it down.  Just put up some guide rails and spring latches to latch it in the down position.  Any thoughts?

    • Well that sure "Trumps" anything else going around and around on in this site today!
    • Yeah you're right, my bad. Yes, the line is awful. 
    • It was a false start on the OL and another one could have been called on the 2nd attempt.  The OL is just BAD, probably the worst I've ever seen for a vikings team.  It seems like few teams put a high priority on the OL.  A good OL can make an average qb, wr, and rb look awfully good when it gives them time and opens holes.  A bad OL can also make a great qb, wr, rb look awfully bad.
    • OLE77, They did replace the valve cover when they did the STP treatment at 92,000 miles; it made no lasting difference.    delcecchi, I have the 5.3 engine.  I'm guessing I need new rings, that seems to be what everyone tells me.   Down2Earth, When I initially brought it in, Village told me they had never heard of the problem.  When I returned (I had then googled it and heard about the AFM and many, many people who have gone through this), they changed their tune and pointed the finger at GM as not letting them properly fix it.  What a joke.   I've attached a photo of the plugs I changed out last week.  This is now a monthly ritual for me.  Great, really looking forward to changing these out in my driveway this Jan.  Grrrrrr.
    • I bought 2 fans off Amazon for $18 each and there 110v. There 5"x 5" and about 4" deep. I was thinking about mounting them under the heater. Or would it be better to but them in a woodbox and mount on to?. They say there good for 69,000 hr of run time.
    • To bad we had an holding penalty that made us attempt it from the 7.
