Ya Sunday is not looking to good. All I would like is a nice Saturday. Sunday would be cabin time and winterizing.

The wind is what I am worried about.

I'm sure what we get won't stick. The ground is still too warm. I always love the 1st snow! It's the 3,000th snowstorm in the middle of February that starts to get to me! winkgrin

Well, the weather was cooperative on Saturday. Partly cloudy and temps around 50. Winds were 8-15 all day. To bad the fish was not as cooperative. Everyone I talked to at the landing and on the lake was saying slow. However on another lake my brother in law did real well. We could not buy a fish and we watched him catch fish. Oh well.

Saturday around 6:30 all heck broke lose on the wind, blowing right in off the lake. Sunday AM it was a howling and it got worse as the day wore on. Something you don't see everyday happened, as I was sitting at the kitchen table looking out and watched a tree fall down right across the driveway. Missed the boat by 20 yards. If we had 1 more boat up there, it would have been hit. Had to clear that out b-4 departing. Kinda cool watching that happen. NO SNOW at all, just rain.

Ya that was the cool part. A wind gust came up and timber. No snow at all. Even on the way back no snow. It was cold enough to do it.

I wasn't much of a guide this weekend Glenn. We should have gone crappie fishing.

Hi guys! It didn't snow here in Carlton on Saturday either. We had some hail type stuff hit the windows late last night and a few tiny snow showers today but nothing else. Sure is chilly here though (34 degrees) and still pretty windy. Jim got the boat put away and the lawn cut on Saturday too.

YEP! Howard Lake from 197? to 1984 off hwy 6 across from Timbers Resort which was sold to Schmidts. With a couple attemps to move back inbetween. Problem was I tried to move back in late November eek. I didnt leave the house till Feb.(and no warm clothes) and that was to come back here. BUT they say 3's a charm grin Next time it will be early spring and NO TURNING BACK!

    • Who has it for that price? Is the transducer included? I have a 5" version. They are good units but if you ever need out of warranty service they will not repair your unit. They give you credit towards a refurbished unit of the same type or let you upgrade to a different model for a certain price which is something to be aware of. I found that out when my elite 5 wouldn't turn on.
    • Your post is demonstrative of the point I am trying to make. Rural areas have been sold a bunch of talk, and you believe that talk and vote against your own interests. The metro area is taking nothing away from the rural areas in terms of taxes, tax dollars flow the other way. It flows that way through employers that exploit you. A particular quote from "What's the Matter with Kansas?" really nails the point home.      
    • I agree, but for the few times I do overnights I would use a light weight cot.  The hitch design is different than most of the other houses on the market.  It looks to have pivot points at the corners of the main frame.  I have yet to see one go through the drop or rise process.  A video of it operating steps would be nice too.   It would be great to hear from someone that ownes one.  
    • I have the hook 7 with down imaging/GPS/standard sonar, I have the lowrance lake chip for mine and really like it.  easy to use and good quality images on the screen.
    • I'm also in the market for a new pair of boots this year. I actually had a pair of Rocky boots that my wife bought me over 16 years ago but it is high time to replace them. I need a pair that lace up because of my prosthetic right foot so the Muck boot types are out for me. I think I will just get a pair of LaCrosse Ice Kings. What amount of Thinsulate is needed in a warm winter boot? I found a pair of Ice Kings on Amazon that says it is only 400 g. of Thinsulate but it is rated for -70. That doesn't seem right to me. Shouldn't it be much more Thinsulate?   https://www.amazon.com/LaCrosse-Ice-King-10-Brown/dp/B0047BWZHO/ref=sr_1_1?s=apparel&srs=2600960011&ie=UTF8&qid=1480899050&sr=8-1&keywords=lacrosse%2Bice%2Bking%2Bboots&th=1&psc=1
    • Friggin A!!!!!! 
    • Anybody have any input on these? I just bought a bigger boat and am looking for a bigger sonar. I found one of these for what seems to be too good of a deal ($520)
    • In the end all you need to see is when the jig disappears into the fishes mouth!  I've been using a Aqua Vu SV, it's old b&w with very small screen but it worked. But this year I won a Marcum camera from Thorn Bro's, (thank you). Lookin forward to trying it out.
