Muskies Inc. Meeting Tonight

6 posts in this topic

Is anybody going to the meeting tonight? I'm not member (Probably will be by the end the night), but I think I might go check it out.

http://www.twincitiesmuskiesinc.org/

Would it be better to just donate to Muskies, Inc. or become a member (Would more of a donation go to fish purchases/promotion than a membership)? I believe I read earlier $30 would buy one fish?

Hey Shawn-

Made it to the meeting last night. Met a couple of guys and compared some notes. Great stuff from Jon on the 8's.

Do you guys have local speakers every meeting? I think I'll grab some more fishing buddies next time.

Hey Shawn,

Is there anything I can do over winter break to help out? I go to school at UW-Madison, but would like to lend a hand over our winter break which runs from mid december to mid January.

"Do you guys have local speakers every meeting?"

Yes, they do. Usually really good ones.

North Metro M.I. also has speakers each month, Sept - May.

The Twin Cities chapter meets on the 2nd Tuesday of each month.

North Metro meets on the 3rd Tuesday. Everyone is welcome.

Yes we do have speakers at most every meeting. We are fortunate enough to have some guys on the board that are good at convincing some very good sticks to come speak at the meetings. Speakers range from big money big names to more local guides. I really enjoy the lesser known names becuase they often "give up" more important details that can help you improve your tactics.

    • Just use plain old spray paint in a can. I've done it many many times and seems to stick really nice. Nothing special either I can't even tell you the brand because I have no clue. But as mentioned doing 2-3 light coats helps.
    • no expert here, but heat doesn't rise. heat radiates in the direction of least resistance (R value). warm air or water rises because it is less dense than colder air or water.  If you don't insulate you will be heating the ground under your cabin and the earth is a very large heat sink $$$. get some info from an expert in the radiant field as far as tube diameter, spacing, water temp, manifolds, length of runs, and so on. it varies on amount of windows (solar) ceiling height and room type (bed, bath, living area,  storage etc.). once you pour over the tubing you get to live with it. I did my own Home 15 years ago and got some good advise (wish I would have taken it all)
    • Sonar works from above, cameras need to be submerged. What am I missing here?
    • I've also had good luck spray painting PVC.  Biggest thing I found is to do lots of light coats, the PVC makes the paint want to run in a hurry.
    • I believe you can do this with the Lowrance HDS 9 and above.
    • I'll go with another loss in overtime.
    • Calling a win tonight, it's going to happen!
    •   You'll probably run into plenty of "experts" among the experts, too...   Floor heat is nice, but definitely not the best option if you're looking for the best efficiency, since it is a slow recovery system.  If you were looking for efficiency and lowest cost, I would suggest looking into a mini-split heat pump to complement the gas furnace if you have off-peak available.   (Disclaimer: Not an expert either, but I have stayed at a Holiday Inn Express a few times.)      
    •   Same here. I have 3 of them. Use them in the SUV, Boat, Snowmobile, and Dual Sport bike. They seem to work better on my sled in the winter with no issues at all over my old ifinder which would eat batteries in the cold. They are discontinued but you can still find them out there on the List or bay once in a while. I like them as they are a crossover and can be used on the road or with a lake map which is the main thing I use them for. Wish they would bring something like it back.
    • Ridiculous... but it would work.  Sorry to offend, guess I don't get quite so fired up about concrete.
