I'm ready!

6 posts in this topic

Well, all I need now is safe ice. I just put my new Humminbird Ice 35 together and read the manual. Can't wait to use it. Two weeks ago I bought a 09 Honda Rancher AT with a Triton XTV aluminum trailer. So I am pretty much chomping at the bit waiting for good ice to come. I just retired last month so I should have plenty of spare time to use my new toys.

Lucky you. I have a good 35+ years before I can retire. Leave some fish in the lake for the rest of us.

You should be able to spend a lot of time on the ice this year. I predict a good 6" of clear ice before the first major snow.

I'm jealous! I still have at least 20 years (stock market dependant) before I can retire. Looking forward to it though. ENJOY yourself!

I agree I have 20 years as well before I can retire, but all of my ice equipment is all ready to go.

I retired a few years ago and I'm so busy now that I don't know how I ever had time to work. I have two boats to winterize and put in storage and then it is time to get ready for hard water.

I am part of the generation that will probably never get to retire- enjoy yourself this winter

    • 70 HP Johnson motor.  Older model, but low hours on it.  Starts up fine, but when I go to give it gas the engine bogs down and won't come anywhere near running as fast as it should.  Anyone have any thoughts on the cause?  Wondering if maybe the carbs need to be cleaned.  If so, anyone know how much of a job that is?   Thank you in advance for any feedback.
    • The Warriors won't lose anyone that wants to stay with them since Durant is basically sitting back and saying pay my boys and then we will take care of business.  Hard to lure a free agent from them if their studs take such paycuts...
    • Score!! Nice find.
    • I still don't like the Hanzal/White trade.  I can see a team that is on the edge or coming into the playoffs as a 6,7,8 seed, but at the time, the Wild was 1st in the West and everything was going great.  I really didn't see a reason why they needed to change or bring in other players.  If it ain't broke, don't fix it.  They could have brought guys up from Iowa down the stretch to spell the vets and give them some motivation.   I'd like to know what Baby Boudreau wants to change or what he would like to see on the team. It would be nice to have somebody that really knows and wants to work the front of the net.  Parise is the closest thing we have to that and that isn't good for his longevity.  Be nice if Coyle embraced a role like that and used his size out front.  
    • Probably because most people wouldn't sell one of these for that much. I'm not sure why they did and well I didn't ask. Maybe they didn't like it as even being a older grill it had hardly been used and looks like new. I already had a Holland Companion grill that works great but this is even better. 
    • Skol!  I'm excited to see how Cooks pans out.  He seems legit so far!  What was the deal with KFAN ditching the rubechat forums?  I know the political page could get a little overheated at times but the others seemed pretty tame.  Too bad! 
    • Wow!! Now THAT's a deal!!!!!!! Why can't I find stuff like that?! 
    • Well not exactly new. Found this at a yard sale for $40.     
    • Havnt seen him for a while and is a lot bigger now.
