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.

    • Thanks for bringing that to my attention.  I am now going to add this quick connector to the coax side and plug that into the wall plate for quick on and off.
    • I have had the Ion for two season's.  It works as good if not better than any auger I have previously owned.  The battery did not show any signs of degradation in it's second season,  I will soon see what the battery does in season three.    I use it in a 9 hole wheel house, opening 7 of the holes everytime I have gone fishing.  Additionally, I go outside the house and always pop open a half dozen extra holes.  I have never had to worry about the charge when setting up for each trip. The battery (older version) does all of those holes including reversing the auger on each hole to remove as much slush as possible.  It usually runs longer in reverse than it does drilling the hole.    I often intentionally drill old holes when I am outside to see if I can experience any lose in power or battery life and haven't had any complaints yet.   20 plus inches of ice hasn't change any of these results.   Since the new battery also works in the older version of the auger I was thinking about buying the newer battery but after some thinking about it there isn't any reason to spend the $200 for a backup that I don't currently need (knock on wood).
    • I was gonna go catfishing but then I remembered I had all my teeth 
    • Why do you guys take pictures with the bait?
       

       
    • No beer in a boat has to be the 2nd stupidest law in the history of the world next to when Wisconsin had the no trolling law   I believe he was talking more about the coverage than the care.
    • The new X battery does work with the previous model for sure.  It gives you the same +60% efficiency with either unit.
    • If you plan on reopening any holes, go with the Ion.  The Lazer blades don't reopen holes  
    • I am planing on getting an electric auger and I was trying to decide between the new ION X or strikemaster lithium lazer.  I know no one has experience with the new Ion but wondering how the older models have been holding up (does the batteries still hold a good charge) and kinda the same think with the strikemaster.  I have seen the electra lazer and not to impressed with it that is why I am wondering if the lithium is any better.  Hope you guys can help    Thanks Bobby
    • If I am thinking of this right you will plug that directly into your camera and have a coax cable running to the wall plate then? If that is the case the only thing I can think of is it will be a pain to plug and unplug the wire when you want to use it. If you are keeping it hooked up all the time then I don't see a problem.
