Hey Doop,

Barry is a pretty good guy, I see him at the sports shows once in awhile. I fished over there a few times when I was younger before I bought my own resorts. If you need any info on laker fishing just let me know.

Dont be afraid to go with Barry on your ice fishing trip. Hes a straight shooter on what to expect, so if you like what he has to offer, you'll have a good time. Myself and my family has known him for many years dealing with him both on buissness and personal items, great guy.

thanks guys...I appreciate it...I know both of you have great operations. I really have no idea which one to look further in to. lol I have finally convinced my dad to tag along on an ice fishing trip. It's been over 20 years since I've ice fished with him. (i'm very excited!) Needless to say I'm hopeful that we'll get into some big pike wherever we go. If you want....feel free to e-mail me with what you have to offer. jensenmd@hotmail.com

Thanks for the replies!

We have been going up there the past few years over pres day weekend. We've always had at least one day of our trip at -20 degrees but the fishing has been pretty good. We do lots of running with sleds but have had very good walleyes and trout. It a very fun trip. Browns do a good job to help their customers any way they can it seems.

There is so much water to fish out of Brown's resort..lakers in clearwater, greytrout and white otter, walleyes nearby, and if you do go make sure you ask about the splake and brookie lakes nearby. We always take a part day and hit them. Lots of diversity. Does seem like both times I was there it never got above zero tho and the last morning there a couple years ago was -31, brrrrrrr grin

Ive only been up there during soft water season but Barry and Carol do whatever they can to help you out. The fishing has been excelent but its been years since i caught a laker...but thats because i havnt targeted them for years wink. it is a great opperation and you should not have a problem with them at all

some of the lakers that have been taken through the ice there are easily over 40lbs

    • Well another game 7 tomorrow night.  Sens have a tough go having to play in Pitt.  Hoping they can pull it off though.  That Karlsson has some wheels!  Even in the 3rd period last night he was fast.     If it is Preds and Pitt it is a toss up, probably go 7 games.  If it is Preds and Sens, I think Preds will take it in 5-6.  
    • I get your drift Rebel but this kid is not going looking for trouble. I think he just wants some ability to respond as a last resort. Sorta the same reason so many of us have carried for  years-  a last ditch option. And he is not going to walk around with it under his raincoat! Ha Ha! I guess I will have to take a look at some of these things just for the heck of it.  To me they have always appeared to be a plastic shooting appliance. I have no use for one and no interest in buying one. There are other options and I certainly do not consider them to be decent hunting weapons,  although I know the younger generation does.
    • I've got $100 that says it's the diaphragm, like I first said. Put yer hand under the carb input are where your line and diaphragm are. Pump that bulb hard. if you get a drop or two of gas leaking out there, you DO have a hole or tiny tear. Pumping it up makes it run better at high speed and /or brings up idle is the telltale sign.
    • Thanks for the input guys.  When the bulb is pumped up it does run fine at high RPM's after a little bit.  I can hear/feel it want to kick in all the way and then it goes fine.  So sometimes it hesitates just a little bit before jumping up to full RPM's.  Of course the boat is on the lift at the cabin so this weekend I will check the size of the lines under the cowl so I can buy some of those along with some other parts.  I will have to decide if I trailer it home or work on it up at the lake when I am there for a week in mid June.  Thanks again for some direction.
    • Whole weekend cheats yes I agree even with ideal weight but one cheat meal a week I feel is ok If you are maintaining your calorie deficit for everything else. I feel like this is actually a good thing because when you are in a calorie deficit your bodies metabolism actually will slow down as your leptin levels drop to conserve energy. Having one cheat meal will temporarily raise your levels.  Now your cheat meal should be sensible still something with carbs and protein think burger or philly cheese steak sandwich pizza with sausage two or 3 slices not the whole pizza.   Fasted cardio before your cheat meal is also recommended         Anyway like others have said before being in a calorie deficit is the way to lose weight You need to find your calorie maintenance level then ideally cut 500 calories a day below that this will get you around 1lb of fat a week loss. Weigh yourself ONCE a week in the morning and track your progress give it 3 weeks before you evaluate and see if the calorie deficit you are at is right if you gained or stayed the same weight take more calorie off your daily intake. Being in a 500 calorie deficit is the most important part exercise comes second when adding exercise this is going to add to the daily calorie you burn so if without exercise you calorie deficit to lose weight was at 2500 calories with exercise it might be 2700 calories a day.   When cutting or anytime really clean foods are #1 in my book if it doesn't spoil in a week I don't eat it Think chicken, broccoli, green beans, peppers, sweet potatoes, green beans, turkey blah blah   You should also count your Macronutrients which are carbs protein and fat Ideally when cutting  10-30% carbs, 40-50% protein, 30-40% fat  
    • Have you had a chance to use your new Garmin Ref? Any feedback to share... 
    • Now that Dems are out of the majority I am seeing big sales on black guns. I would think you could get a better modern rifle than the bushmaster for a very reasonable price right now. 
    • "Because he lives in a high tension area" ... "high capacity"....    This one sounds like trouble just waiting to happen.
    • check for crack in the boot between the motor and the carb. get it started squirt some carb cleaner on the boot if the rpm goes up there is a leak.   
    • just spotted one. yay ! LOL
