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.

    • First off, the comment I made which you replied to with a hypothesis never stated that there was proof they did anything wrong. I merely and accurately stated that there was a chance they did some of the same things and it appears that may be the case.   You said plainly that VW could have chosen the Daimler tech but chose not to. In the end doing so may very well have found them in the same boat.    
    • Haula is probably going to see a lot of playing time so I don't doubt he will have some nice years, kind of like how Brodziak scored 20 playing as our first line center. I like Schroeder as first call up or emergency player but he just can't consistently bring it in the NHL, that is no crime because when he gets hot he is fun to watch but he just can't stay there. 
    • That's some good info, Thanks.
    •   I think they're shut down, too.  Smells like no money and more welfare...    
    •   Not sure if their still producing cardboard up at that plant anymore?
    • Now Haula and Tuch will have career seasons next year.  Haula is the odds on favorite to win the Ross trophy and Tuch should have a couple Norris' in the next 5 years.     Sounds like Wild might not bring Schroeder back either.  I really hope they are contenders for a strong center or a really nice goal scorer.  
    • Good point about the center support.  I wandered out to my ground blind on one of the last days of archery season to find the roof caved in and two poles busted. 
    • MMmmm Cloquet....   Smells like money.
    • I am a little concerned with it fading but it needs to be left up for the deer to get accustomed to it so no way around that.   I assume the sun is the main culprit in fading so I'll do my best to protect against that.  One spot I'm considering is tucked into some pines which create a lot of shade, brushing it in heavily should also help keep it out of direct sun as well.   Good point about a center support to help with the snow.  I'll make sure to add something.
    • interesting? oh its raining here too!!!!!!!!!!!
