13 posts in this topic

First trip on the ice today and the resutls were awesome!

I only fished for 2-1/2 hours, bit in that short time frame our crew produced a few nice 'eyes. Two of which were a tad over 29 inch's, or ten plus pounds!

I have a feeling that winter is going to be as good or even better than last winter!!! gringrin

Just curious Stu, have you tested that camera new lens on the Greenbacks yet?

Wondering how the enhancement would do with there unique coloration?

Not yet Ed, but that should change tomorrow as I'm heading out, I'll keep you posted!

As for picture quality, I guess ithat's entirely dependant on lighting conditions...

I was curious how the unique coloration of them Green's would develop with that lens.

They are gorgeous on there own but as you well know can be tricky to get the coloration to show up properly in photo's, especially in the winters fickle lighting conditions.

If there is a magic combination to getting them to glow, you will find it I am sure of that.

The Big White Blow was preaty nasty here this weekend Stu, did you get socked in bad from the wind? We should be making ice now..Eh.

So where are the pics? I would love to see them. It is a world class fishery up there and the fish are beautiful.

Here's a HAWG that gator stuck the other day. Fish of this caliber are everyday for those who are willing to work at it.

Mind you, a little good fortune always helps.

These "Reelbait" jigs have really been kicking butt up here "again: this winter. Just add a salty or two!

Great pics Stu. Those Reel Baits Flashers are some deadly hog hangers. I'm also a big fan of the Plain Jane jigs by Reel Baits, awesome river jigs.

After a little Tweak I am seeing some great succes with the Lytle's Secret Lure offered by Reel Baits. This fall I had some great luck with them and I am eager to hit the big lake with you this summer and tear into those sumo White Bass with them. I bet they go nuts for them in the 1/4 oz!

    • I'm getting pretty far ahead of myself, but I'm beginning to wonder if another trailer ramp spring would be the way to go for raising the back bunk.  I've never used one before, but I'm sure you can set the tension so it's well below the maximum and it wouldn't take so much effort to pull it down.  Just put up some guide rails and spring latches to latch it in the down position.  Any thoughts?

    • Well that sure "Trumps" anything else going around and around on in this site today!
    • Yeah you're right, my bad. Yes, the line is awful. 
    • It was a false start on the OL and another one could have been called on the 2nd attempt.  The OL is just BAD, probably the worst I've ever seen for a vikings team.  It seems like few teams put a high priority on the OL.  A good OL can make an average qb, wr, and rb look awfully good when it gives them time and opens holes.  A bad OL can also make a great qb, wr, rb look awfully bad.
    • OLE77, They did replace the valve cover when they did the STP treatment at 92,000 miles; it made no lasting difference.    delcecchi, I have the 5.3 engine.  I'm guessing I need new rings, that seems to be what everyone tells me.   Down2Earth, When I initially brought it in, Village told me they had never heard of the problem.  When I returned (I had then googled it and heard about the AFM and many, many people who have gone through this), they changed their tune and pointed the finger at GM as not letting them properly fix it.  What a joke.   I've attached a photo of the plugs I changed out last week.  This is now a monthly ritual for me.  Great, really looking forward to changing these out in my driveway this Jan.  Grrrrrr.
    • I bought 2 fans off Amazon for $18 each and there 110v. There 5"x 5" and about 4" deep. I was thinking about mounting them under the heater. Or would it be better to but them in a woodbox and mount on to?. They say there good for 69,000 hr of run time.
    • To bad we had an holding penalty that made us attempt it from the 7.
