barter fishing trips for computer help?

9 posts in this topic

From this point on I will fish nearly every day(weather permitting) till it is time to ice fish again.I usually manage to catch fish but have learned to never promise fish.If you are a computer geek and would like to show up at a landing and catch some fish and show me how to use my lap top,we can barter.I just can not afford to pay the geek squad $50 to $150 every time I bring it in any more and would rather fish than take a class.Soon I will need a web page which I know costs some $ and am willing to show you some of my spots and let you use my gps and one of my boats.You can fish and program at the same time.Thanks

In addition I think a forum for computer help and discussion is needed here.There is one for almost every thing else here.

While not a self entitled "computer geek", I do know my way around a computer pretty good. Send me a email over to aol. My email is duckhuntinggod at aol dot com.

I am not smarter than a fifth grader when it comes to this topic.I mostly need basic help when it comes to using options on my computer,mostly stuff that most people take for granted.When I try to do certain things,errors pop up,usually if I do figure it out on my own it was as easy as finding the right spot on the control panel and turning some thing on or off.But when I do ask for help, I am lost with in seconds with the terms used.Example: When I try to post pics here from my photo hosting site javescript void; comes up,huh?? As stated I will be doing a web site and at this rate if I try to do it myself that will take me a year full time to get it done.Thanks for your response

Meatfish, what's your email addy. I have been in computers for 11 years and over the last year have designed a couple of websites. How far is Spicer from the twin cities, I'd be happy to help you out to learn some new water.

meatfish - If you're still looking for some help I'm sure I could be of assistance. I'm certified in A+ - hardware, Network+ - networking, and MCP - Microsoft Windows XP and Server, currently working on my Linux+ cert.

If anyone else is in need of computer work I'd be interested. Ideal trade for me would be some cat or muskie fishing but I'll fish for anything.

Meat, do you know a tall, rapping basketball player from Spicer named Jeff? He knows stuff.

    • 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.
    • We caught plenty of bass this weekend.  However most were small 12-13".  Deep fish were less than eager to bite.  Still seen a couple guarding nests yet. Small plastics fished slowly was by far the best tactic. Only found a couple decent fish, biggest being 19.25".
    • We called at about 4 had them as close behind the blind but never came around for the nephew 
    • What great fun on a 4-weight fly rod!!  Those are dandy panfish.
