    Deer Jerky?

    My Wife makes Deer Jerky & lets it dry in the window in the Sun. Then puts it in a low temp oven and it's ready to eat!!

    How cold is too cold (for you?)

    Several years ago I set-up on LOW with the reading at -39. It was kind of a cool feeling.

    Bass Photos

    White Bass, does that count?? St. Croix River, Jig & Minnow Head. 17 1/2" long, 1" short of Mn State Record. THE STORY: This one got off as the jig (a Silver Rapala w/ a Minnow Head) hit the bottom of the ice & it was laying there stunned because I brought it up fast, so I had to reach WAY down with my arm, give it a "Death Grip" & pulled it up into the Fish House! Arm & Fleese was soaked! HA!! Here's a pic of the biggin'. May not look big as I had to pull way back to get the whole fish in the pic...

    Whats your favorite line for the ice?

    Some Sufix Ice Braid, but ices up in a reel below freezing. Some Trilene "Cold Weather". Low memory & controlled stretch. I use this for all snells.

    Perch Eggs

    My Wife eats fish eggs all the time, along with eyeballs and all of the other meat in the fish heads. In fact, she's the best fish cleaner I have ever seen in 40+ years. I have never cleaned a fish since I met her. ...and this is from a guy who has cleaned fish all my life!

    Fried Mooneye (Yes, it's Good)

    Yea, there's bones. But not as much as the Smoked Whitefish I just had...

    Fried Mooneye (Yes, it's Good)

    Hey, Last week my Wife caught a Mooneye on the St. Croiz River, she never saw it before and I was going to throw it back. She said, no, keep it, so I did. She gutted it out, de-scaled it, put many knife slices, about 1/8" apart, in each side. Then she sprinkled kosher salt & some pepper on both sides & inside and it sat in the frig until the next day. Then she fried it in extra virgin olive oil and ate it, head & all. She loved it, I tried it, and we both said it tasted like Crappie. So, there you go... a recipe for Mooneye!

    A Little Paint TLC Before Storage (w/Pic)

    Thanks guys! Used a medium pad with the Meg's Ultimate compound. You can get it at Wal-mart or Fleet Farm. Put it on a speed of 5 then did up & down, then side-side strokes. Then wiped it off. Put on Meg's Nxt 2.0 on a waxing pad with a speed setting of 3, then did up & down, then side-side strokes again. Then wiped it off again. That's it!! I'm likin' the Surf City Garage waxes better, will buy nothing but from now on. Just did my 2006 GTO. Looks purrrrty now...

    A Little Paint TLC Before Storage (w/Pic)

    Hey, thanks! That's Black paint you're looking at. Did my Saturn, a Camry, my GMC Sierra, a BMW, a Mercedes & an Audi. I should do it on the side. For cheap.

    A Little Paint TLC Before Storage (w/Pic)

    My fishin' boat, see below, needed a little TLC before putting it away yesterday. Below the line is Meguiar's Ultimate Compound with my new Griots Garage DA/RO Buffer. Not bad, eh?

    First time winterizing!! Help!

    Wow, I fogged every cylinder, every year on my 140hp 4-stroke EFI Suzuki for the past 10 years with zero issues (and I'm super anal & picky). The engine just sings! What on earth is wrong with fogging then?? Please be specific with data & examples.
