Tell Craig and Paige that Kyle says hi smile

Good luck, and let us know how it goes! I may actually head that way this weekend as well. Maybe we can compare notes.

i have a guy that i work with at the boat shop, and he goes there every year. You dont see alot of them, but the ones that you see are big in that area he said. They usta spear the other side of the lake, and you will see them all day long, just not bigger ones!

We had pretty good luck, not great a lot of 2-3 lbs. One 33" and one of my buddies missed what he thought was a 36" +. We set up right on the mouth of the river in 7'-9' of water. It was pretty slow and found that we had better luck when we moved deeper in about 14'-16' right on the breaks. The water was very clear in the shallows and a little murkier it the deep water. Ice was 13" and we got a ton of snow Sunday, barely made it off the lake. McArdles resort was awesome. Great trip, can't wait until next year.

We also caught about 10ea keeper perch a day. Helped pass the time.

    • Good job!  I have never found any Blacks so they look a little different.  Can you take a picture of what they look like cut in half? They look a little scary like False Morel's 
    • I picked for about 2 hours this morning. I'm not exactly haw many I got but its enough for a couple meals. I'm going to chop some of these up and mix with some cream cheese, feta cheese and garlic chives and then stuff some chicken breasts and cook them on the grill. The little bit of rain that we got last week helped the shrooms pop but it really didn't do much else for the woods besides help the mosquito's hatch. There were so many they licked the bug spray off first then swarmed. I found the mushrooms all over, North, South, East and West facing hills. Normally spot 1 has the best results but this trip it was my second spot. All of them had pretty good size too. Only a few that were in direct sunlight were dried up otherwise they are very firm. Spot 1 is the left container. Don't worry, I use a mesh bag while I'm out in the woods!
    • Yup.... 6 & 4 for Lead.... 4 & 2 for steel
    • I ended up framing my house, putting on the T&G , and then spray foaming back against the interior, which may be why I am not seeing any movement... I also used pine vs cedar
    • I agree with the guy who agreed with the other guy.
    • Just wait till they come up with the remote submarine drone with 3d high resolution camera that can see through algae and milfoil and transmit to your eyewear in 3d.   I struggle with properly tying a berkley knot......
    • I agree with rundrave. #4 early and #2 shot later in year
    • Yes, 5/16 T&G I installed last fall. I did the same, but I see this summer it's starting to buckle  
    • Adding a 4th wouldn't do much IMO. The map screen is already too small to be useful when screen is split in 3. I added a Helix 7 G2N to use as a map screen. Networked with other 2 units
    • I could always go and spend more money on an additional unit but some of it is like Floyd said. I have a hard enough time watching one screen. I have the app on my phone. I think that lowrance has the ability to split the screen into 4. I just can't believe I'm the only person who would like to see this but maybe I am. It may not be as big a deal once I get more familiar with the unit. Right now I like to look at all the screens to help discern what it is im seeing on the screen.  I appreciate the input!
