On the bright side, at least we get a white Christmas, not a semi-white but mainly brownish Christmas. smile Happy Holidays. smile

How do you think I feel? Here I sit with tons of lakes around, brand new Vex, brand new Jason Mitchell rod, retired and able to go whenever I want, ATV, all kinds of gear, and I can't even get out on my own lake. cry My fishing buddy and I went over and plowed the road down to his lake, but there is no way he was going to plow out onto the lake. He went out about 5 feet and it was slush, slush, and more slush. Guess I may have to start going to lakes where the resorts plow roads, like Winnie. I am sure my lake is slush covered, I might try taking the snowblower down there and give it a shot. At least get myself a path out far enough to set up some tip ups. I know I wont be able to pull my sled out by hand, I will end up having a heart attack. I guess I better start looking for a reasonably priced snowmobile.

I wish I could have a white Christmas. It did snow once here in 1989. Everyone laughed at me for making such a big deal over it. Everyone else totaly freeked out they didnt know what to do so I got to laugh at them.

Barb went out on Moose this morning and with all that snow and the drifts I don't think I will be taking the 4 wheeler out any time soon. I got the snowmobile stuck in the ditch because of all the snow and got overheated trying to get it out. Once I got out on the lake it was better but it felt like you were going through waves when hitting the drifts. The Lakemaster chip in my H2O would not work so I did not get to the spot I wanted but still got 3 small one's and will hit it again tonight. I was able to get the chip working at the cabin so I should get to the good spot tonight.

    • 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!     
    • Males were on the beds last night on a lake here in the metro. Not my deal, so I let 'em be. Which means I didn't catch much at all compared to last week.   Oh well, be a couple weeks before the summer patterns start happening. Already a hint of cottonwood floating on the water though. *booooo*
    • I would agree with Purple.   Just add an inexpensive unit of your choice for the maps.   You could even use a cheap tablet with the navionics app on it for the mapping, if money was an issue.     You can buy a 7 inch generic (RCA) tablet for around 50 bucks.    A few bucks more gets a holder.
