Ok, so I am thinking the 16th of May I am heading down to Cannon Falls to hit the bike trail down there. Who else is up for the GTG still and would that work for everyone interested?

I was thinking the 17th, but I go back to work at 6am that Monday, so I want to have some time to rest as I plan on doing the whole trail.

For those who might come but might be traveling a distance, I was planning on being there around 10am. Does that work???

Here is a site about the trail: cannonvalleytrail.com.

Not sure what other details anyone needs to know, but here is what I have so far. (I'm also thinking of checking out the winery down there!) winkgrin

I'm still riding the Gateway Trail often though.

I was trying other weekends in May, but the weekend of the 9th is fishing opener and the weekend of the 23 is Memorial weekend. frown I plan on hitting way more trails and will probably go down there more than once, so if you wanna go biking sometime let me know: jesyka_41@hotmail.com. I don't mind traveling to find a great trail smile.

For personal reasons, I need to back out from this gtg. Not many people are showing up it looks like, but if other people want to go have fun.

I do plan on hitting that trail sometime this summer. If anyone else is interested in doing a gtg, let me know. Anyone looking to hit up trails this summer in the metro area (I'll even travel a little outside the metro if I have enough time off of work) feel free to email me at jesyka_41@hotmail.com.

Sorry everyone frown.

Never have, but I have vacation coming up soon and wouldn't mind riding up that way. Hey, if all goes well, I might be living up by Lake Calhoun before the end of the year, would get to know the area before I move smile. grin

    • It might be better to buy a small second unit and link them.    My guess is what you want is not something enough people want to justify implementing.   Personally I have a hard enough time watching a bobber.
    • Welcome to the Forum.  What brand gun is it? Would help to pick choke tubes out.  Size 6 shot should do the trick, but I'm sure more folks will chime in here. 
    • I upgraded my electronics this year to a Humminbird Helix 10. I love it so far with the exception of not being able to split the screen into 4 separate screens. The max that you can do is 3. I would really like to be able to have the map, sonar, down imaging, and side imaging on the screen at the same time while trolling. I emailed tech support and they said it's not something that is an option at this time. Right now when I'm fishing I switch back and forth between map, sonar, and DI and sonar, DI, and SI. Is there anyone else that thinks this should be an option? I don't know see why you can't customize the screen to show whichever features you prefer instead of only using the preloaded options that Humminbird decided on. I have thought about emailing the company weekly asking if they have that ability yet but wanted to see if anyone else thinks it should be an option. 
    • I just purchased a used 20 gauge for my 14 year old daughter. I hunt mostly state land for pheasants. It is a 2 3/4 auto with interchangeable chokes. What size steel shot and choke tube would you recomend for her?
    • I just got back from a work trip to MI. I could not believe the difference in ground cover. We traveled all the way from Dearborn back to Bemidji heading through the U.P.  Most of MI had very little ground cover but WI was flush, green everywhere! I only got to check a few spots at rest areas but I never saw a thing. The ground was dry at most spots on the way home. I'm gonna go hit my spot tomorrow, hopefully it hasn't been picked yet!
    • love those when ya see them!!!
    • Took the kayak crappie fishing opening weekend and when calm always bring with the DSLR with. These turtles are glad the weather has finally consistently warmed up. I always find it funny seeing turtles stacked on top of each other and found a few along with multiple species which was nice.     
    • I was going to hunt wi this weekend but fishing musky with my fly rod is what I will do instead.  Good luck!!!!!!!
    • Anyone still at it?   not sure that i will get Isaac out anymore, will still ask these last few days.   Good luck everyone.
