if i had to guess what i've gotten more 'skis on i'd say white with some sort of contrast. followed close by orange/black/dead yellow. but my favorite? ...jeez.... absolute favorite for me is white/red/white. white front, red middle, white end. or i suppose white/black/white too. that would be hard to decide. white/brown/white aint bad. white/deep purple/white. and a host of others. just something special about white/dark/white, IMHO. but it has to be colored in a way it's not perfectly uniform. like a bumble bee pattern (theres another good one) is uniform.

Personally I am a baby loon guy. I really like black and white or black/silver. Firetiger is my close second. I have a couple colors that look really pretty in my box, but I don't ever throw them for some reason. I pledged to myself that I will try Pink, Blue/silver and Black/Chartrous this next year. I am also playing around with the dark purple as someone mentioned. When the bite is tough I do go to a more natural/slower presentation with a walleye or pike color.

Depends on the day I guess, but for Tigers I LOVE black/red and for Pure Strain I like black/orange and anything with some white on/in it!!

Gosh those Tigers smoke the black/red!!

    • Switched up my pick at the last second in bucket A and put Wheeler in there. Great ledge fisherman and sounds like this dude puts in more time on the water then any other angler out there.   A. Wheeler B. Evers C. Tharp D. Herren E. Omori   Sounds like the bite has been super tough. Will be interesting to see how it goes. 
    • They are drumming like crazy now. In fact, I even hear them at night. My wife said when she was a teenager growing up in rural Wisconsin, she always thought that drumming sound was the nearby powerstation.    
    • Lilac blooms are here, just haven't opened. Hearing some reports of good finds in the Houston and Lewiston areas of MN. I checked some new public areas today on the MN side. Could be decent later but too cold and wet right now. Will check some early season spots tomorrow but won't hope for much with the cold weather.
    • Nice!  Must have seemed forever waiting.
    • 6 months later and he is home
    • Three favorites at the moment.  By the time they upload, I may change my mind.
    • A few from Maplewood State Park on April 16th.  Non-professional, but they stood still long enough for me to get 'em.
    • You might be able to figure things out this week.  How big is your sump basket?  Is the  pump kicking in now?  Sit there for 15 minutes and count the number of times it cycles.  That should give you a decent idea on how much water is coming in.  Then figure out about how high the water has to go before it flows by gravity.  The spec for the pump will say something like that it can pump 2,000 gph at 10 feet of lift.  (the gph drops dramatically the higher it has to pump the water).  The answer to your specifics will give you an idea of how big of a pump you need.  If you match the size of the pump as close as possible to the amount of water your will face you can maximize the amount of time the battery backup will last.   Faced with this problem I took a standard boat sump pump and modified it so I could hook up a garden hose.  The I took an old shop extension cord and wired the pump so I could hook it up to a car in the garage.  So just prior to having Noah float by I could hook things up in the garage and be good to go for as long as I had gas in the car to pump up the battery.   Now that I am adult I bought a generator and wired the house to take care of things.
    • Inevitably at least twice each season I will leave the house, drive 45 minutes and walk some of my favorite grouse spots for hours and hours, seeing nothing.  Admitting defeat on that day, I will drive 45 minutes back home, only to find a covey of birds in the driveway...
