3 posts in this topic

As the Walleye Warrior Marathon celebrates its 5th anniversary, we would like to thank you for your support. It is because of the support of our fishing community we have been able to donate over $60,000.00 to cancer care and research. We are happy to announce that this year we have joined forces with the Never Alone Foundation, the Winnipeg Blue Bombers and the City of Selkirk. This partnership and the change of location will allow us to expand this very unique event and we hope we can count on your continued support. The Walleye warrrior 24 Hour Marathon in support of the Never Alone Foundation will take place in Selkirk, Manitoba on February 21st and February 22nd, 2009.

The event will host a variety of activities that will appeal to anglers of any experience level. There will be a daytime fishing derby starting at 9:00am where anglers, whether they be first timers or pros can try their hand at landing the big one! For the families wishing to take part there will be a Family Mini-Marathon and Kidzone from 1:00-4:00pm with special crafts and prizes and visits from various mascots. For those participants who are more adventurous, the 24 Hour Marathon will take place in our large heated tent where participants will continue to fish overnight. Breakfast and prize awards for the marathon will take place on Sunday morning complete the event. On Saturday evening all those attending are welcome to take part in a dinner and special memorial for Brian Leclair and other friends and family who have lost their battle with cancer.

    • What exactly will you be using it for? Driving around the country with the top down, hunting the back woods, fording small creeks?   Do you have a particular budget to stick to?
    • at times the prop will stop on mine, usually when I move it to turn, need to tear into it sometime, I have use fishelectronics for misc. parts
    • I might have to get out and test drive a few and figure out what I like and don't like. Definitly not buying new so Ill narrow it down a bit and then wait for that cherry to show up.
    • Good job on getting it done with a limited amount of time left to hunt.
    • Love the curvature of the antlers.   Beautiful mount!
    • Not a monster for sure but he makes the season a success. I wasnt going to be able to hunt tomorrow because of a first communion, not afternoon today because of my dads birthday, and only evenings Monday&Tuesday.  So time was limited and i am more than happy to eat jake. Here he is.
    • Either I'm slackin', or the sun is rising earlier than it did last year! Didn't make it to the river until 6, but surprisingly I was still the first to arrive  walked to my normal starting spot, but once there, something told me to go out of the ordinary. So I packed away my black panther martin and put on a crayfish husky jerk. I didn't catch the trophy I desired, but I did catch some nice ones, with the biggest being about 15 inches. I ventured farther downstream than I ever had before, and wanted to keep going, but it appeared that the fishing easement ended, and I may have been on private property. I stayed in the river the entire time, but didn't want to push my luck, so I went back upstream. Caught 19 total, probably lost at least as many. Surprisingly, no brook trout though. 
    • Oh yeah, a lot of the newer 1/2 tons have frame rust issues as well.  If you want a serious off-road machine, you need to go back to the models with the straight front axles, and of course, they're getting harder to find in decent shape too.  Especially in the rust belt.  You can still find solid older trucks if you head west, young man...        
    • Just to be clear- The wrangler wasn't introduced until 87 so at least compare apples to apples and having owned ford,chevy and dodge trucks of the Wrangler era I can testify they all have issues. My 08 Ram had more frame and fender rust than my older Jeep. The Chevy's have plenty of frame issues as well. Yes. It's a concern but if you want something like this,there is no better alternative.   https://www.google.com/search?q=chevy+frame+rust+problems&client=opera&hs=Lrs&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjAnPz1kMrTAhVpw4MKHSs9B1UQ_AUICigB&biw=800&bih=381
