Lure Swap??????

3 posts in this topic

Not locked into stone as of yet, but it sounds as if there is going to be a recruiting event put on by the Minnesota National Guard at the St Paul armory on Feb 28. This will also coinside with soem fund raising for Operation Muskie. We are working out all the details, but it looks as though we might have a lure swap and perhaps a seminar by a very well known Muskie Legend. Won't put out his name as of yet, but no one would be disappointed listening to him talk. Probably be a few other "legends" around that day as well. The MN Guard has worked with Ranger boats and will have the official MN Guard Ranger 620 at the event. This boat will be at all the shows this winter as well and at some of the tournaments around the area. Will post more as we get everything locked in stone. Tenatively mark your calendars!!!!

Sounds very interesting, calendar is marked for sure!

Based on who you had lined up for Op Muskie '08 I can take a fair guess at some of your participants and speakers!

Bret, let me know if I can assist on behalf of FM, you have my email address.....

Let me know what you need! I have a lot of SueprDs that need a good home frown

I am sure a vet could give them that good home in a tacklebox wink

    • Sonar works from above, cameras need to be submerged. What am I missing here?
    • I've also had good luck spray painting PVC.  Biggest thing I found is to do lots of light coats, the PVC makes the paint want to run in a hurry.
    • I believe you can do this with the Lowrance HDS 9 and above.
    • I'll go with another loss in overtime.
    • Calling a win tonight, it's going to happen!
    •   You'll probably run into plenty of "experts" among the experts, too...   Floor heat is nice, but definitely not the best option if you're looking for the best efficiency, since it is a slow recovery system.  If you were looking for efficiency and lowest cost, I would suggest looking into a mini-split heat pump to complement the gas furnace if you have off-peak available.   (Disclaimer: Not an expert either, but I have stayed at a Holiday Inn Express a few times.)      
    •   Same here. I have 3 of them. Use them in the SUV, Boat, Snowmobile, and Dual Sport bike. They seem to work better on my sled in the winter with no issues at all over my old ifinder which would eat batteries in the cold. They are discontinued but you can still find them out there on the List or bay once in a while. I like them as they are a crossover and can be used on the road or with a lake map which is the main thing I use them for. Wish they would bring something like it back.
    • Ridiculous... but it would work.  Sorry to offend, guess I don't get quite so fired up about concrete.
    • Concrete. Way easier to plow. My parents have a gravel driveway WORST THING EVER! Impossible to snow blow because of all the rocks always wet and muddy. Sure it's cheaper but in the long it's not worth the cheaper price. 
    • I have used a Lowrance XOG (no longer available) on my boat and on my snowmobile for years now with no problems with cold or speed of tracking. I use a Lakemaster card for Minnesota lake for fishing, a Navionics card for coverage in Canada and LOW for winter and summer fishing, and a Red Pine snowmobile trail map for riding. Have ridden at 30 below without any problem with the touchscreen, it is hooked up to sled power, so it probably is getting some heat, and I put it inside my jacket when I get off. I recommend that you do a little research on the available chips for where you are going because different manufacturers use different chips. My use pretty much limits me to Garmin, and expect to pay couple to $300+ for chips for where I travel.
