Steve Rosa's messing with me shes said if I fish the tourney were not getting the new van and there's no way I'm driving the Venture that far with no dang heat laugh but if I kiss --- real good maybe I can take hers, LOL

I was just reading the rules and 8 perch/8 sunfish. Told Rosa it wasn't gonna be a one week trip like the Nationals arrive Fiday morning fish Friday/Saturday and Sunday after the event back home. Make the reservations at the hotel and let me know what it is on my end.

Seems like each trap I fish I have a different partner, Big Johnny Ice, Kyle and now you. laugh

Timmy,

I will get with you to find out what we want to do. I think I will pull the trigger on what we talked about and I will discuss another option i might ask of you. We'll see. Also I will have that wed-sun off to pre-fish and just relax a bit. I'll get the studs on the quad tires. No walking for these two smile

Talk to you soon<

Steve

Steve - You plan on going that early hmmm. Maybe with that military discount a couple extra days pre-fishing doesn't sound bad by me. Talked to Shawn and it sounds like they have a whale of a fishery there.

Kyle and I had a good set-up last year fished hard when we got there and took a day off to game plan and par take in the Alexandria night life. It's a good formula. These events are always about the three F's., Fun, Friends and Fish.

I returned calls after snowblowing and I couldn't remember if I talked to you today, hhmmm. confused

Talked to Shawn tday and I think will have some fun helping him on our end getting more Yorker's to attend. I'm looking forward to it.. cool

Ok,I'm a little lost and have been out of it for awhile but where is this taking place? It sounds good and If I can get a partner I would love to go. I got a buddy who's just getting into it and he's in the market for a flasher and trap. He has the wheeler already so we are good there.

Rick's pulling the trigger on a Trap Guide that's a year old and in GREAT condition so he and his little one can get in the fun.

No problem Steve. There should be something on the fishy spot for reservations. I think 95% of the guys will be staying at the same hotel for the rules meeting I guess it's about 20 min. from the lake, not to bad. Try to get a first floor room nearest and exit to the parking area so we don't have to take the elevator and such to haul gear in/out.

Splitshots - We are in the preliminaries of having an event for the crew centrally located, a [PoorWordUsage] session with good food and friends and a little fishing as well. It's long overdue with our growth over the last few years. Been a while since I was called the apron boy laugh Were still looking for a newer used as well.

Van is holding it's own now, close to having all the air out of it, want to drive it some more before I bleed it again, at least it's not spiking. Been a while since I wa the apron boy laugh Were still looking for a newer used as well. Were still looking for a newer used as well. Leaning towards a Town and Country sick

    • Any thoughts on the new CORE-ICE 6.5′ x 12′ Adventure Trailer.  Looks like a great design!  Is this the first year for them?  I don't find much on the web about them.    
    • LH...I repaired Shimano's for years, and this was a huge issue for the Stradics and the Sahara's, First, look at the bail and make sure that they are not out of alignment. I bet your problem is caused by one part (and it's the probable cause of both problems)..... To keep the bail from rotating on the cast (and snapping shut on you in mid-cast) there's a small friction ring inside the rotor. It looks like a heavy rubber band only it's made of heavy vinyl plastic. It's  actually called a "friction ring". When it goes bad it loosens up just enough to bind up your reel completely and the bail won't snap shut. Also check the round bail return spring with the smal 90* bend in it, that can pop out of the tiny hole (the "bent" end) and cause the bail to do literally nothing. If your bail actuator pin (your :latch") is bent/worn, that will do it, but unikey that it's worn down that much. Loosen up the bail center screws, and see if when they are loose the bail will return. If so, they may be bent/out of alignment. Takes some careful maneuvering to get them back to proper set. I love Shimao stuff, but they never did own up to this problem, as far as I know. Check those things first and let's go from there.

       
    • Look at the diagram, order the parts.   If it pops open or won't close I am still thinking the spring... Take pictures with phone or digital camera as you take it apart.  Helps to get it back together. 
    • Wrong guy there.  I don't fish in MN anymore, don't have a boat either. 
    • Clinton.     After Mn coughed up 66 million for 150 jobs in Cook, nobody from MN ought to be criticizing Indiana.  Looks like they got a heck of a deal.
    • who hasn't done something dumb like that.  I know I have!   good luck making it up to you Mother!!
    • *sigh* Kiss of death my friend............. kiss of death.   LOL
    • make / manufacturer: Eskimo
      model name / number: Mako Upgraded to an electric auger and selling my old one. Runs great and has been well taken care of. Starts on 2-3 pulls every time. I have the extension for it as well as a new set of blades that I bought but haven't needed to change yet. I also have a cabelas auger bag that it fits in.
