I drove through Storm Lake on Saturday on the way to Sectionals in Sioux Rapids. I fished Crawford Creek(Battel Creek) on Sunday and the gills would not say no. Ended up giving a few of them a ride home with me.

Storm Lake-including Little Storm Lake

Fishing has been very good, but a little spotty after fronts move through. Remember that Storm Lake has a 17-22 inch slot length limit. All walleye in that range must be released.

Channel Catfish - Good: Catfish are starting to bite on worms and cut bait from shore and in the rocks.

White Bass - Good: White bass are being caught at Frank Starr Park and off the rocks on the big island by throwing twisters and crankbaits.

Walleye - Excellent: Anglers are still catching fish while trolling slowly with Shad Raps. Good colors are: hot steel, clown, purple haze and perch. People have been having good luck drifting with live bait using 1/8 ounce jig heads around Frank Starr, south of big island and the college island.

Fishing has been good. A little spotty after weather fronts moved through. Remember that Storm Lake has a 17-22 inch slot length limit. All walleye in that range must be immediately released. Channel Catfish - Excellent: As lake warms the catfishing has improved. They are biting on a variety of baits from shore and in the rocks. White Bass - Good: White bass are being caught at Frank Starr Park and off the rocks on the big island by throwing twisters and crankbaits. Anglers have also started to catch whites off the north shore west of Chautauqua jetty. Walleye - Good: Anglers are still catching fish while trolling slowly with Shad Raps. Good colors are: hot steele, clown, purple haze and perch. People have been having good luck drifting with live bait using 1/8 ounce jig heads around Frank Starr, south of big island and the college island.

    • I apologize if that came out wrong. The idea might very well be the best route to go. It's just that over the past 25 years or so I have seen many attempts to save a dollar that cost a buck and a half to do lol.    Here are my two cents. If you have a slab and you want to pour on top of it while keeping the same footprint that sounds pretty doable and could probably save some money if you don't have to change drain lines, run water, heat runs, electrical etc into the slab.   If you intend to tie into the existing slab and run zones of pex across the joint and have the new and old floors end up at the same elevation it still can be done. Some contractors will not want to mess with tying into and raising the elevation of the slabs and will prefer to start from scratch especially if you as the homeowner want them to warranty the finished product.  The critical thing would be to use enough rebar drilled into the old slab and have enough compaction and sufficient footings to make sure the slabs stay where they are without settling. That would make all kinds of problems with the pex.    Hopefully that response came across better.
    • It'll be interesting to see if the team plays a little harder in front of a different goalie. 
    • Hawg, I'm with you on this one !
    • Check and see if you have a video output on you device. You may be able to record to a digital device.
    • Just use plain old spray paint in a can. I've done it many many times and seems to stick really nice. Nothing special either I can't even tell you the brand because I have no clue. But as mentioned doing 2-3 light coats helps.
    • no expert here, but heat doesn't rise. heat radiates in the direction of least resistance (R value). warm air or water rises because it is less dense than colder air or water.  If you don't insulate you will be heating the ground under your cabin and the earth is a very large heat sink $$$. get some info from an expert in the radiant field as far as tube diameter, spacing, water temp, manifolds, length of runs, and so on. it varies on amount of windows (solar) ceiling height and room type (bed, bath, living area,  storage etc.). once you pour over the tubing you get to live with it. I did my own Home 15 years ago and got some good advise (wish I would have taken it all)
    • 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.
