I suppose ill have to settle on Thorne Bros gift certificate or a 8'6 St Croix rod.

World Peace. smile

But i'll settle for Everyone to have a Safe and Happy Holliday Season.

for me... i'd love to find a place that sells the jumbo sized blades in aluminum on Boogermans' ''Musky Buzz'', or Stainless Steel like on Headhunter Tackles' ''Puzzler''. without buying the lures, lol. that would be great. even better would be to get a gross of both of them under the tree laugh

I've got a pile of stuff, but I'm sure i'll be getting most on my own. How about a list of things to have by next year instead?

2 reels

2 rods

300 new baits...(sarcasm :-D)

Boat

Maybe a couple video's would be good for x-mas to help the hardwater season pass.

2 Shimano Calcutta 400TE

1 Shimano Trinidad TN14

Materials I need to finish my boat...

fiberglass stuff - epoxy resin, mats, sealer, etc etc...

Lowrance 28C for bow, 38C for stern/driver side

MinnKota 80 or 101 w/ 60" Shaft... 80 might be better as it'll be 24V

Basically the works... A to Z... lets hope Santa is good this year LOL

Jerkbait rod & reel combo, and a few more lures.

I'd love to add a new boat to the list, but I'm guessing even Santa is tightening the belt these days eek

1. Terrova trolling motor

2. New GPS/Graph for the bow of my boat

3. Extra week or two of vacation so I can go on more trips

4. Not to go back to Iraq

5. Everyone on this board to boat their PB next summer

Garcia Toro, man what a sweet reel. I think that it will get along quite nicely with mu 8' MH Techna AV.

For me, it would have to be more pink and black double 10's, gotta love the color combo. Maybe even a pounder or 2, we'll have to see if the 8 footer can handle it. I'm getting kinda sick of catching 25 inch pike on mag dawgs! And any new DVD's that catch my eye. Sure hope I'm on the nice list!

another rod/reel combo would be great, but I don't think that's coming at all.

I told my sister to go to the store and pick me out whatever bait she thinks looks the best, so that will be fun smile

Hunter, just remember that Santa Clause can give out smaller baits too. wink

Have him throw in some orange and black mepps magnum musky killers! they have been known to work on overcast days on your favorite lake. You might want to throw in some killr eels too!

10,000, when I first saw you pick that bait out I thought you were going to get the bass and hammer handles out of the way for us! Just kidden ya, but I still have a hard time throwing a bait that small. In October, I caught 4 pike under 30 inches in an hour throwing a magnum dawg.

A few years ago those used to be considered pretty big lures ya know. Speed can kill and I'd rather throw those all day than double 10's. I've got some off brand mini bulldawgs that you might like too. A couple ounces lighter and a little smaller and they run pretty good.

Unlimited supply of grizzly mint and gift card to tb.

That would fit me quite well too!

I'm working on plans for a March bass fishing trip to the Lake Fork area in Wood County, Texas. I'm looking for some more bass gear, maybe a couple of the new Curados, a couple more rods, and some bass lures, soft plastics and jigs, etc......

The Abu Garcia Toro 60 in the lower gear ratio for another low-pro muskie reel is on my "Wish List" as well..... Maybe one of the new Lakewood seat pedestal organizer boxes too, they look nice.

Wants aside, I'll gladly trade all that for a healthy back and a healthy home!

"Best Wishes" to all this Holiday season.

Regards, Chris

    • 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?
    • -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------             And.....you pay for it all.    
    • 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.
