No idea JR... no seats offered yet... although I'd definitely LOVE it if I could go out and see if I can catch one for 2008 tho... keep the streak of at least one muskie each year alive...

weekends are awesome because i get to fish somewhere besides Sugar, you know, lakes that don't suck. can't complain about the mild temps and beautiful evenings we've had this month out there though. not sure what the destination is yet but it's going to be on like donkey kong!

if anyone is heading to sugar, the south ramp is closed for the season. if you usually use the south ramp, you've probably got better places to fish near you anyway......

good luck finding a spot rebel, if i was going to be in the metro i'd offer but looks like i'll probably be heading the other way.

Plan on hitting the water for 'skis on Saturday evening, and then the big river for walleyes and sauger on sunday morning. Hopefully both will produce!

While I plan on getting out a couple more times this year yet I have Buck Fever too bad right now. I've hardly gotten to bowhunt yet and this is getting to be Primetime. Thus my time will be soaked up in the deerstand this weekend.

West O as always starting after work on Friday. Hope to get a few more yet in the boat to salvage a somewhat low numbers year.

Living life one day at a time......

Heading out tomorrow afternoon in the TC area. Smaller lake, so we should be able to hit a shallow pass or two and see if the last couple mild days pushed a few fish back up top, then hit the deep weedline if that doesn't pan out.

Sat and Sun are up in the air at this point. I'm sure I'll get out one of them if not both. The Vikes game is a GREAT excuse to head out on the water!

Sure thing Bigeye... that sounds good... my email address is in my signature...

What kind of a boat... why I ask is because I visited French about 2 weeks ago... and the water was very LOW at the launch... wouldnt want to have any problem with launching ur boat... if you know what I mean...

I'll shoot ya an email tomorrow and we can figure out a time etc. I know the lake is down some but we shouldn't have any trouble getting on the water, it's a 1775 pro-v on a roller trailer so that always helps. I've launched in some pretty shallow water and am not really afraid to back the rig in far enough so we should be good. Next weekend is open for me, shouldn't really be any traffic on the water as it deer opener so either Sat or Sunday works. heck we could even go on a muskie tour if you wanted to. If we don't suceed on French we can bomb up to the metro and finish it out up there. I'll shoot you an email and we can figure everything out.

    • It would probably be more accurate for you to say you simply choose not to believe it will be a problem.   What happens to your theory if interest rates rise to 5%?  
    • All depends on the district and how many years you have been a teacher.  Although MN is looking for teacher all over.. Our current district decided on keeping befits really high and seeing an increase in pay. Where my mother in-law (down in the cities) they have great benefits but there wages haven't not increased as significantly..    Although my wife is looking to open a daycare up so we knows if she will be teaching after all? 
    • You'll be fine with the door in the V.  I heard at one point that the Lake of the Woods edition was Ice Castle's most popular layout.  I know I see tons of them, but you will have to take some precautions.  I use a Towtector on my truck, which keeps the majority of the slush down.  A piece of tape or a tennis ball over the door knob is also done frequently.  Other than that, you'll have icing and freezing of your door, regardless of where you put it.  Just the nature of the doors we use.       
    • That does happen a lot and it sucks having to play those games.  I took my contract job knowing I was going to keep looking for full time work so it was really just a stop gap to get pay checks coming in and also to gain some experience in a new area and with a different company.  I think i was there less than 2 months total including the 2 week notice I gave after accepting my full time job.  Often times its easier getting a job when you're already working somewhere as you are viewed as more employable.  If you're not working then employers start to wonder why. That where a short term contract job can pay off.
    • I'm lucky enough to have the choice when I start my day, usually head in before traffic gets bad(6:30), but today I woke up and was like..........I'll wait until after rush hour(let that carp melt). We have a guy that starts at 4:30 am, and others that roll in at 10:00 am.   35W-494-Hwy100 on the way in, but I avoid 494 like the plague in the afternoon and cut through Bloomington. Adds a few minutes time that way, but it's always the same amount of time,  I hate hate hate the accordion traffic of 494. Jump on 35W right before the MN river and I have my own lane, no merging needed.   Curious to see how shutting down Hwy 169 is gonna affect things. Might roll in even earlier if need be.   Started working from home on Friday's two weeks ago, it's nice but I don't know if I would ever enjoy working from home full time. Stir crazy and lack of interaction with other folks.   Living on the south side of the metro stinks for taking trips up north. But we live with fewer meth mullets around.   We picked where we wanted to live first and then adjusted how far we were willing to travel for a job.        
    • Ya a saw that, sounds like they have played an easy schedule but you still have to pretty good to have that kind of record.
    • One could also say Koivu has been reborn, that line has been on a tear lately. I think all of them are at or near a point per game for the last 22 games. Not to mention they are doing that while usually getting the job of shutting down the other teams top line. Crazyness!
    • most people are pretty good in the shanty towns that I frequent.  the thing that pisses me off is the guys that come out with there 50 grand fish house and there 5 dollar generator.  instead of leaving it in the back of the truck where it wont bother anyone they drag it 50ft front there house set it next to me and let it buck very annoying.
    • Maybe you can help me understand something.  He mentions his wife is a teacher.  From what I have been told and through reading doc's through the MN Dept of Education, teachers generally get paid the same.  I understand there is a little "bump" for working in the cities, but doesn't the State Teachers Union dictate what teachers make to some extent?  My daughter wants to get into teaching and I was just curious.  I highly doubt a English teacher in Shakopee makes $15,000 more than a teacher in Detroit Lakes when comparing degrees and experience.  Hopefully MJ can offer some insight as well. Thanks!
    • We had kids.   Well it's not really that bad though...
