Introduction

21 posts in this topic

I stumbled upon this great site a few days ago, now I wish I would have discovered it earlier! I am looking forward to sharing and recieving some great information, advise, and tips.

A little about me:

I was born and raised in Eastern Montana, went to NDSCS for Welding then just kinda kicked around between MT, WY, and CA. I finally settled in Alaska and have no plans of ever leaving(well maybe vacations, lol). Darkhouse spearing is my main hobby, but I enjoy anything outdoors, especially fishing. This winter I am able to take my 2 year old son with me all the time, now his favorite bath toy is one of my Bear Creek decoys, lol.

Best of Luck to all!!

Welcome. After spearing northern Minnesota this last weekend I can't even imagine how thick the ice must get in Alaska? Normally around Central Minnesota the ice is maybe up to 24". The spear hole I cut this last weekend must have been 36" deep.

We have about the same amount of ice(30"-36") here in south central, but you don't have to drive too far before you need an extension on your auger. I think the weather here in South Central is better then MN, ND, and MT. We don't get the heat like you guys do. Our winter's don't get much colder either, they just last 6-8 weeks longer. Plus since pike are not native to this area, there's no possesion or slot limits. grin

    • Man, I can see cream cheese but peanut butter? I may have to give it a go sometime, maybe the bacon will off set the oddness?  
    • Sorry I missed that. The brown and blue wires are the Transmit TX and Receive Rx wires for connection via single cable to NMEA 0183 compatible devices. nmea 0183 is the protocol for compatible devices, computer, plotters, auto piolet, Radar, radio, etc. All of these devices including your GPS can be connected to a single cable. The brown and blue wires allows the sonar to communicate to other devices. Google nmea 0183 compatible devices for a raft of information on what this is. My brother, a charter Capitan out of Cortez FL. uses these devices on his boat for off shore fishing up to 100 miles off shore. Nice to have to talk to other Capitan's ship to shore, radar, GPS and  to get back home without running into sunken islands.  
    • Trump stumped on terrorist quiz as he can't identify the leaders of ISIS and al-Qaeda – but Carly Fiorina shows she knows her Nasrallah from her al-Julani Radio host Hugh Hewitt asked Trump and Fiorina the same questions about terrorist leaders in separate taped interviews on Thursday FIorina answered confidently and Trump seemed flummoxed, confusing 'Quds Forces' with 'Kurds forces'

    • I ask the same thing about the other 2 candidates, especially the one that is your favorite.   What do you care? I thought he was irrelevant anyway?  
    • Oh yeah.  I keep forgetting about all that modern computer stuff in cars.   So the computer would notice the tranny didn't shift all the way down as the car stopped?     There goes that theory.    And why only after a couple hours of driving?   Some sort of overheating of the transmission fluid?  cooler plugged in the flush process?    Here is a question for Carpmaster..... Is it different in the summer vrs winter?   Like you only have to drive 50 miles in summer and 200 in winter?   You guys that actually know can feel free to ignore my suggestions if you don't want to waste time answering.  
    • leech, it does sound like an odd concocktion.  but you gotta try it.  225 for 2 hrs, helps if u use thin bacon.
    • nw wisconee private marsh
    • Sorry, I thought the model was listed on the title of my question.  Anyway, Garmin 53dv EchoMap.  This one has downview, but is chirpless.  Seems like nice unit, tough.  Just wondered about those 2 wires.  Thanks.
