Let's see some pics of this beautiful cousin of the perch and walleye! These guys are like the misunderstood cousin of perch and walleye. Just because they like more turbid water doesn't mean we shouldn't be showing them off.

Dang! Thats a hog loos. Congrats on the catch.

I would invite you out again so you could show me where you caught that one but my motor is not running right and the guy looking at it is rather slow. I'm hoping to get out there a few more times if things go well.

Thanks guys! laugh 17 weeks of almost nothing to show for it...and froze my butt off due to inadequate clothing for the last 3 weeks...this is worth it! As Fishwater said, " You have a zen thing going huh?" ^_^- I'm at peace.

In my book a sauger over 20" is big. Get a 23" in the spring and its five pounds or more!!!

Nice fish. The big suagers seem to be bitting. I was out on Pool 2 today and got a 23" and a 24". Got the 23" first so I got to break my PB twice in one day.

Was nice to catch a few fish to wash away the skunk smell from earlier this week. Would like to post pictures but the bateries on the camera were dead.

    •   Del be fightin' with himself again. He likes that. 
    • I now boys fight Nice!!
    • Its a great house. Yep its heavy, yep the cover is bulky compared to a single layer, yep I'd buy it again. You can always pull down a zipper or 2 (front and back doors) if you get hot. For what its worth I switched from a Clam Yukon TC (normal sides with a insulated top) both are a similar size. On below zero days in the clam I would have to use a big buddy. In the otter I use a buddy and rarely turn it on high.
    • Ya, right. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA   From a car audio site....MOTORHEADS talkin'...   FlyinMiata9,
      A shorter antenna mast captures a smaller portion of a radio broadcast station's travelling radio wave. That results in reduced radio reception capability. The reduced radio reception capability may never be noticed if only listening to nearby radio broadcast stations in the city. 

      There's no overall magic of one short antenna over another. There are some that include a signal amplifier. They can at times enhance more distant radio receptions, but usually degrade other radio reception situations, often those where there are multiple strong radio signals in the reception area.

      The overall disadvantages of antenna amplifiers for car antennas tend to be far more predominant than advantages. There are some radio signal amplifiers for car antennas that automatically switch "off" when operated in a strong signal area. That can assist clearly listening to the nearby strong radio stations, but reduce the prospect of listening to any some distance away.

      There's always a prospect of the antenna you installed being defective, or not installed properly well mounted to the car's fender for a good electrical radio reception ground plane. Check to make sure the in-line Motorola connector set is fully pushed-in inserted together. 

      A simple way to test the antenna line and system is to tune in a weak AM radio station in the daytime and then grab hold of the antenna mast to detect stronger and louder reception of that weak AM radio station. Your conductive body mass adds some to the short antenna's reception capability. There may also be an initial "thump" sound as the car's radio makes an automatic adjustment of its radio reception sensitivity. If there's no dramatic change in weak AM radio reception, look for an open or shorted electrical problem. Best bet is a full length proper antenna.
    • The replacements most likely have tuning components built in.  And it isn't too big a deal anyway if you have decent signal strength.
    •     What are ya, a parrot? Someone needs to tune you...with 220 volts of inductance. *ZZZZZT*  
    • Well you guys could have given me this info before.
    • Not in disagreement....most Ice gear is though.   Just trying to find some feed back on if it works well and lights up like it should.
