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.

    • It's not optimum for home defense or hunting either. Basically just lower cost plinking.    As far as Bushmaster, they make ok guns for sure. But personally the fact that they are owned by a venture capital firm who tried but failed to sell them off some time ago, they are more than likely controlled by bean counters rather than gun enthusiasts and that generally doesn't bode well for quality. 
    •   social media king...... and dont you forget it ! ! !  lol
    •   I see you have a whooooping 65 posts. start sharing and maybe the site will be smokin again... LOL  have fun and stop beating the horse that died.  pretend ya just found the site  
    • Use the hallow points or ballistic tips they rip apart
    • I usually get mine from Tim over at Stump Jumper Designs. He does great work and has lots of choices of woods etc... 
    •   Yeah, but you know your Aunt Bev will never make fun and insult you on FaceBook like you will get here! 
    • Smoked 3 slimers last week.  real simple brine, 1 cup pickling salt, 1 cup brown sugar and water to cover.  24 hr soak.  added onions and brown sugar on top. 3.5 hrs at 195.  Used to leave skin on, dealt with the slime.  still tasted great.  Been skin off for a couple batches lately and its the way to go.  no slime to deal with, just sprayed the rack with pam.  hammerhandles be ware!
    • I've only tried them with Northern, but honestly, I'm not sure I could taste the difference if I didn't make them myself.  All psychological, IMO - this will likely start an off-topic discussion BUT I participated in an 8 person taste test between Walleye, Northern and Bass (yes, we cut-up a medium sized bucket-mouth).  I was the only one to name all three fish correctly and it was only due to the fact that my friend who was in-charge of the test accidentally missed a y-bone so I just had to guess in-between walleye and bass and I guessed correctly.  A couple of the guys also had a y-bone and got their guess between 'eye and bass wrong!!!  Flaky white fish is flaky white fish - especially when you bust it all up, mix it with bread crumbs, mayo and whatever else.  Again, just my opinion.
    •   I agree the split did not work out. Also a lot of people are on FB. Heck I finally joined last year. Jury is still out whether I like it or not!!
