I was in there today helping set up some stuff in the back room where the seminars will be. There are going to be some smokin deals there. I plan to head in Saturday morning and hang out for a bit.

I'm broke. As for me just going in the store to look, would be impossible for me. Also it is well over an hour drive for me anyway. Anyone know what kind of deals they are having on muskie stuff. Looked on their HSOforum and it didn't really say much. Maybe 20% off baits like it was at the expo?

DHanson, I helped move around all the stuff for the 50% off rack today. There were quite a few totes full of stuff that is being clearanced. I would say 15 rubbermaid totes worth. Pretty much everything else is 20% off. They have a raffle ticket deal again this year for purchase. 2 bucks a ticket or 3 for 5 bucks with proceeds going to the vets. The raffle prize is the first edition Predator Series Rod tied by Lonnie and a Trinidad 16N. Over a $1,000 prize.

Grandpa Joe is going to be there to rig boats with electronics purchased at the sale as well. Only thing he can't do at the show is glass in ducers for thru hull shooting.

It's only 4 miles for me so a no brainer to make the trip.

Cool, I have some parts to get back to him from rigging on my boat, and that will save me another drive to North Branch. Will probably be there Saturday AM or maybe Friday afternoon (or both).

Anyone have a list of the seminars? I heard Larry Dahlberg will be giving one, and I have a question he's perfect to field (I have to take my buddies father-in-law to be fishing in June, and he hails from southern Brazil so I need to know what type of fishing goes on down there and what he'd enjoy up here).

Well as always I had a tough time staying under budget, but I did pick up a few goodies. I got a new DCG, a Medussa, new Hog wobbler, a new eagle tail and one or two other items. These guys really do a great job servicing all their customers and enjoy what they do. To be completely honest, who wouldn't enjoy working there?

Made it out today and picked up a few things. Missed Larry though as I had to wait to get dog licenses (bad luck on that timing)...

    • Hey @rl_sd who had the meat on sale? Looks great btw
    • chicks maybe exploring what the beak is for
    •   You can also be a little creative with the leftover meat.  For example: The wife and I will whip up a spanish rice mixed in with the pork and make Enchiladas or heat the pork on the stove top, mix in some BBQ sauce and make quesadillas (the grandkids love them).   There's more to pulled pork than sandwiches.  
    • that is great!!!!   good for you guys!!!!
    • Your right rs_ld,  a full smoker is the way to go, leftovers can always be frozen and re heated..good eats.
    • 195 degrees on these butts. Like they say, if you are going to spend 9 hrs smoking 5# of meat, you just as well spend the same amount of time smoking 45#. The local grocery had these on sale so had a few friends take the offer to throw a roast on for them. Took two off early for slicing  Pulling the rest cost them each a beer though!
    • Very good stuff, kinda tasted like ribs with this recipe,  I'll keep at it til I find the right one!! Good luck moon lake!!
    • It will be interesting to see how the Warriors react in free agency.  Will they be able to keep the team together?  It seems like all these guys value winning above a paycheck so they might be willing to sign deals that will still allow the team flexibility to keep good role players around them.    
    • That's too bad.  The fish were ON FIRE up there.  I went out with my dad and uncle with our tiller walleye boat, and hardly a clue what we were doing, and we crushed them!  Ended up with 118 pounds of packaged salmon fillets.  I think I can honestly say it was the most fun fishing trip I've had in my life.  Here's my biggest of the trip, 25 pounds.    
    •   It's amazing to see a thoroughly talented team like Cleveland just get dissected like a back alley pick up team. I agree--GS will be THE team to beat for several more years if they keep their nucleus. I think we can make them sweat a little bit now, though, so that's pretty exciting for a change!
