I grudginly put the boat away on Sunday as well. Luckily a few of my buds still have thier boats out so I will hop in with them. I needed the garage space as I was getting tired of scraping the truck's windows every morning.

I'm not ready and the boat and gear are still ready. I usually take it down to the "cold bitte end" which is about two weeks from now.

I'm not ready for the ice either. Fishing has been great this fall so far and I'm not about to give up that space in the garage just yet. wink It sure is nice hitting all the lakes that get hammered during the summer months by rec. traffic with ease. I'm giving myself 2 more weeks as well. Good luck out there!

2 weeks for sure. The fall bite is the best. The weather is looking good for this weekend.

G.C.

I won't put it away until the bitter end. There has to be ice on the lake I can walk on, then the boat will go to storage so I'm thinkin' December. Too many good days left on the Croix and I have some guide trips booked already so the boat has to stay out.

I have at least 2 weeks before I put her to bed for the winter. Still some walleyes to be caught on Vermilion and I have some of the best fishing early in Nov.

Just like most guys about 2 weeks, I usually put her away just before shotgun deer season. By the time deer hunting is over and hockey started last week(I coach)not much time left to fish. At least my usual fishing partner keeps his boat out until the bitter end.

I put it way today. I went to take it out today and had a flat tire then I got on the water and my finder battery went dead. Then I realized that I didn't have my wallet with me so I went home and started getting it ready for winter. I figured it was an omen

Hanging it up till spring. Putting the boat away sometime over the next few days.

Starting the long wait till the Sportshow sparks my interest again in the spring.

My boat is still water ready and will stay that way for a while. The weather looks fairly decent for the next couple of weeks and besides, the ice shack isn't ready yet. I still need to run a gas line to the heater and wire up some lights.

    • What kind of heaters are you guys running? Do you guys have to build your wall out if using a direct vent? Since most of them are for 4 1/2" walls.

    • Ya the Bush's think our current media is essential, the same media that tells lie after lie, focus mostly on ratings instead of news & of course colludes with politicians and government to cover up those dirty little secrets they don't want out. Not sure we have ever had a truly free press and people like Bush Family and the Clinton's just love it.
    •   That might actually work for del if the generals happen to be Republicans or "right leaning independents"...

    • The fantasy is happening right now, the parties are already crumbling and people on both sides are flocking to outside candidates. This isn't some fluke, the parties are not going to straiten themselves out and suddenly get back supporters and clean up their acts. There time is at an end, who or what replaces them I don't know but change is in the air so I would try and embrace it.

    • Lets hope they are peaking early. Towes has been hot but he can't score on us at that pace forever, keep him in check along with Kane and I think we can take them. You aren't going to stop those two completely, the rest of the team isn't as deep as they have been during other cup runs so this is the year to take them out.
