Recommended Posts

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.

    • 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.    
    • I would just buy a couple different boxes and pattern them with all of the chokes and see what shoots and patterns the best.   Depending on your hunting style a more open choke if the birds will be closer. I will normally have the tighter choke as the way I hunt the birds will be farther away but I also shoot an O/U and tend to let the birds get out a ways before I shoot. So an IC/MOD may be a good choice also. But like I said I would pattern the gun with each and different loads just to get a feel for it and whats best for her confidence.   I shoot steel all the time and I tend to shoot 4 shot and late season even 2 shot to deal with late season hearty winter birds.    Welcome to HSO!
    • It might be better to buy a small second unit and link them.    My guess is what you want is not something enough people want to justify implementing.   Personally I have a hard enough time watching a bobber.
    • Welcome to the Forum.  What brand gun is it? Would help to pick choke tubes out.  Size 6 shot should do the trick, but I'm sure more folks will chime in here. 
    • I upgraded my electronics this year to a Humminbird Helix 10. I love it so far with the exception of not being able to split the screen into 4 separate screens. The max that you can do is 3. I would really like to be able to have the map, sonar, down imaging, and side imaging on the screen at the same time while trolling. I emailed tech support and they said it's not something that is an option at this time. Right now when I'm fishing I switch back and forth between map, sonar, and DI and sonar, DI, and SI. Is there anyone else that thinks this should be an option? I don't know see why you can't customize the screen to show whichever features you prefer instead of only using the preloaded options that Humminbird decided on. I have thought about emailing the company weekly asking if they have that ability yet but wanted to see if anyone else thinks it should be an option. 
    • I just purchased a used 20 gauge for my 14 year old daughter. I hunt mostly state land for pheasants. It is a 2 3/4 auto with interchangeable chokes. What size steel shot and choke tube would you recomend for her?
    • I just got back from a work trip to MI. I could not believe the difference in ground cover. We traveled all the way from Dearborn back to Bemidji heading through the U.P.  Most of MI had very little ground cover but WI was flush, green everywhere! I only got to check a few spots at rest areas but I never saw a thing. The ground was dry at most spots on the way home. I'm gonna go hit my spot tomorrow, hopefully it hasn't been picked yet!
    • love those when ya see them!!!
