Woops!!

I got my paperwork today for the Banquet.

And there it is in big bold letters.

All adults must be members to attend.

You also need to send in your dinner reservations asap.

So it looks like you have to be a member before you get to the banquet pauly.

The membership is $10 for a year and the banquet ticket is $15.

I believe that Merkman's mother won an underwater camera. I thought that's what we cut a larger hole for!

This banquet was a really great time and my wife and I met a lot of really great people and laughter was pretty much non stop. The meal was exellent also and man did they give away alot of prizes. I would highly recomend that if your not a member you should become one.

My son had a great time-they give away prices to all of the kids under 16. We need to get the kids involved to keep this sport going. Dinner was good and there were a lot of great prices. I finally got to meet the infamous (I mean famous) Merkman. It was good to see Elwood also, I really thought I had the winning ticket for the fish house-maybe next year Good to see you guys won some prices-my son took home a Crossman BB gun and was just tickled, was asking when the next one was

    • It's a female Bigfoot,  silly.
    • You can save the mapping data on an SD card. In order to create a map you will need the Zero Line Card. You will take the SD card and plug it into your PC. Down load the map data into the zero line software. The software than creates the map and uploads it to the zero line card. It is typically recommended to use an SD card for the data as once the zero line card is full of either maps or map data another card will need to be purchased.
    • whats a samsquatch?  lol
    • Nope....don't need friendseyeguy54..... It was a darn samsquatch!
    • Way to get him out MM!  I'm sure he appreciates it.
    • I believe some units come with maps of some lakes but probably wont have any real detail as far as contour lines.  I think most will have a map of the US but when you zoom in you wont get much for detail on lakes and If they do contours will probably be 5-7ft apart.  If you want to put data on a card you will need a zero line card for mapping. About $150 i think.  8 hours should give you quite a bit of mapping.  Best would be to buy from a retailer so someone with knowledge of the product can show you how to run it.  You might be able to take some snap shots of sonar and put on a blank card but don't think you can map with it. I would get a Lakemaster card for the area(s) you want to fish.  Worth every penny.
    • Turkey season is over for my nephew!! It was a long season with many hours spent in the blind. He seen more turkeys then ever before and had a toms close enough to grab. It is going to be nice to sleep in. Until fall turkeys!
    • Heading up to Devils in a couple weeks and again later on.  Doesn't look like a lot of activity on here.  Tryng to get an idea whats happening before I go.
    • I have been out the last two days locally and haven't set the world on fire. Caught a few each day, but fish have been scattered. Lake is loaded with curly leaf mats this year, so that hasn't helped things. Once that starts dying and weather warms up, things should pick up.
    • Nada for me today. Had some hens come in to give my decoy some company today, but no toms. Sorry I wasn't able to help out on the scoresheet this year. As always, learned some stuff that will make me better next year.
