I love this one cos' she really kicked my butt that day! (Which was the case on many occasions.) Unfortunately she has lost interest. Even to this day if I find myself in a rut I'll try & coax her to go fish with me. Seems like she always did well.

My daughter's too young to fish herself but she enjoys relaxing when I fish from shore. PIC-0133-1.jpg

Here is my son Aaron with his grandfather as a five year old in 1997, and (inset) as a 15 year old muskie hunter! He also shoots bigger deer than his dad...ugh. CopterJohn

My youngest is 11. Here's Nathan with a nice pike near Detroit Lakes. He has been using baitcaster since he was three. He shot his first rooster last weekend.

And now we flash back to 1981... Copter John with a 8.3 largemouth.

Caught from a vintage Bass Tracker boat and a fat rap. Remember it like yesterday. John-1.jpg

absolute tank.

I have a picture of me from fishing opener when i was probably about 5 or 6. I'm holding up a 15-20 pound pike that my dad caught that day that was as tall as I was. I'll see if I can find it.

My little boy, it's a moment I am sure he won't remember all that well, but it is one I will never forget.

What a HAWG!!!!! Killer hat as well. It seems that all of my older hats (circa late 80's) seem to be creased in the middle of the bill. Sign of the times?

    • Just use plain old spray paint in a can. I've done it many many times and seems to stick really nice. Nothing special either I can't even tell you the brand because I have no clue. But as mentioned doing 2-3 light coats helps.
    • no expert here, but heat doesn't rise. heat radiates in the direction of least resistance (R value). warm air or water rises because it is less dense than colder air or water.  If you don't insulate you will be heating the ground under your cabin and the earth is a very large heat sink $$$. get some info from an expert in the radiant field as far as tube diameter, spacing, water temp, manifolds, length of runs, and so on. it varies on amount of windows (solar) ceiling height and room type (bed, bath, living area,  storage etc.). once you pour over the tubing you get to live with it. I did my own Home 15 years ago and got some good advise (wish I would have taken it all)
    • Sonar works from above, cameras need to be submerged. What am I missing here?
    • I've also had good luck spray painting PVC.  Biggest thing I found is to do lots of light coats, the PVC makes the paint want to run in a hurry.
    • I believe you can do this with the Lowrance HDS 9 and above.
    • I'll go with another loss in overtime.
    • Calling a win tonight, it's going to happen!
    •   You'll probably run into plenty of "experts" among the experts, too...   Floor heat is nice, but definitely not the best option if you're looking for the best efficiency, since it is a slow recovery system.  If you were looking for efficiency and lowest cost, I would suggest looking into a mini-split heat pump to complement the gas furnace if you have off-peak available.   (Disclaimer: Not an expert either, but I have stayed at a Holiday Inn Express a few times.)      
    •   Same here. I have 3 of them. Use them in the SUV, Boat, Snowmobile, and Dual Sport bike. They seem to work better on my sled in the winter with no issues at all over my old ifinder which would eat batteries in the cold. They are discontinued but you can still find them out there on the List or bay once in a while. I like them as they are a crossover and can be used on the road or with a lake map which is the main thing I use them for. Wish they would bring something like it back.
    • Ridiculous... but it would work.  Sorry to offend, guess I don't get quite so fired up about concrete.
