Water is coming down and temp is going up - Twins are on the radio

15 posts in this topic

The Battleship went in the water this afternoon and she is all nestled in her slip. The St Croix is on a nice slow drop from the high water and the temp has been creeping up - 42 degrees today. 45 degrees has been kind of a magic number for the channels to get going. I'm putting up my Day Enclosure and going to fish through a few Twins games this next week. Some warm 60 degree sunny days coming should turn on the high water backwater areas.

Time to get on the KOTC Leaderboard. Look out, Tyler - I'm going to take a run at your leader spot.

Let the Trash Talking begin.

Go get e'm SteveD. When you go channeling the goal should be at least to catch as many fish as the Twins put up runs.....then double that # grin. Good luck bud.

Sure- that makes sense. I was having one of those "I can see it but I'm not sure what it is" moments. Seems to be happening more and more lately. It is heck getting old.

Thanks for the info.

Ok I might be confused.....

SteveD, Are you not the guy on MinnesotaWaterFowler (dot com) (MWF)that goes by "Swampy"? We have talked about Cattin and the Twins over on that site a fair amount....I assumed you were him?

Here's the funny thing, the only thing I could come up with from MWF was MN waterfowler assoc. I've never heard of it and didn't know it existed, yet that is what I thought of......then figured I was off base when Mon Wed Fri was suggested.

Funny smile

    • 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.
