Just wanted to say thanks

13 posts in this topic

Just wanted to say thanks to everyone who helped me get started this year, It was a great time, and Im glad my GF (Heidi) who got into spearing also this year, (soon to be wife) will be going out this weekend by herself for one last go, hopefully she'll get one! I wouldnt have been able to have so much fun spearing this year if it werent for this forum and you guys being soo nice answering the ?'s I had. I ended my season at the 2ndGTG and I ended up spearing 5pike biggest was 8lbs, and I got into carving decoys hardcore, which Im grateful for because I feel that I can add more veriety to my deaks by carving them myself and without some info from this forum I wouldnt have been able to do that either.

So thank you to everyone and I cant wait til next year! Take care everyone n thanks for the help and memories!

Those are definitely sweet jigging sticks. What's cooler than the Green Hornet?

I'm glad you had a good year, Laska. I'm looking forward to a southern MN get-2-gator next year.

Congrats on your upcoming wedding.

See I only say she gets the first one cuz it would be her very first northern ever, Angling or spearing, so I guess if she catches one this summer its fair game for me to get the first on the ice haha.

BNS, U thinking of when they will be as far as which one will come first the north or the south?

    • If this crazy weather keeps up a guy might have to go to the mountains to have enough snow to ride.
    • I purchased a 20v 986 Dewalt brushless and used it with my Nils 8" and could not believe how fast it cut. Very close to my Tanaka motor as far as speed. My plan is to use it with my 6" Nils but wanted to give it a good test and it passed with flying colors. 
    • Pretty sure Bernie had that figured out. After the primaries I voted for "not Trump" You guys haven't picked up that liberals are still going for not Trump, even if that means Mike Pence (who from a political position standpoint is worse for liberals).   Instead you have Trump, a man incapable of taking any form of criticism regardless of how irrelevant it is to anything. Why do I post the crowd sizes? Because Trump, in a speech given only to members of the CIA, thought it was important enough to mention, as well as to have a team of his own people there to applaud when he mentioned the size of the crowds.
    • Here's the exact reason why I encourage everyone to buy the digital readout.  After getting holes drilled and everything setup, I always run my bathroom roof fan/vent to get rid of the moisture as the slush on the floor gets melted.  Yesterday I cranked the fan on max which moves some serious air, but I forgot to crack a window, which caused it to actually suction the CO from my water heater back into the house through a propane line pass through.  I looked up and saw 30ppm on the CO detector, which isn't high, but an indicator that something wasn't right.  All it took was cracking a window and turning down the fan for a minute and it was back to 0.  
    • You do realize the person you wanted to be president couldn't even understand the proper protocol for setting up a cabinet level email account don't you?    
    • I looked into fiberglass a few years back for a build.  I decided against it as it needed a wood backer.  Not sure if there is a different product out there now.  
    • finally got out Friday, put on 75 miles in the heavy drizzle, not the first time I have riden in the rain. the trails were OK, I rode in aitkin co. that doubles the miles I put on in the last two years.
    • they load tested the battery and said it was bad, everything else they said was fine, they put in a new battery. tried it today after sitting since Tuesday, and it started up fine, problem fixed.   I have a 2002 grizz carbed, and that sat for close to 3 months, went to start it this weekend, and it cranked for at least a minute (very cold blooded machine) and it started, it has the same battery that's in the Polaris.
    • Precious snowflake Trump needs a safe space from the media apparently.   I suggest you familiarize yourself with the word kakistocracy, because that appears to be the road we will be traveling down.
    • No,I am saying those who are left with jobs are working for those who Obama is happy to give money to for nothing. He was as bad as it gets in terms of getting people back to work after a recession especially when you factor in the amount of money he spent to do it.
