  1. My wife had a change of heart, so I guess the dog stays! Thanks for all the replies and sorry to let any prospective owners down.
  2. Free to a good home, 4 year old female (fixed) black lab, 50-60 pounds. She deserves more attention than I can give her due to my long commute and new addition to the family. She loves to retrieve anything, especially when it's in water. She has the potential to be a good duck hunting dog, but I never had time to train her on pheasants or ducks. Her parents are pure bred AKC labs and excellent hunters. Here are some pictures: http://picasaweb.google.com/jkrobran/KacieTheLab Email me at [email protected] or call 612-598-5975 if interested. Located in Le Sueur.
  3. Thanks guys, I appreciate the help! I absolutely love the boat, but I have a new addition to the family and now I have no time to use it. As a side note, the Johnson is one of the best starting 2-strokes I've seen for that era. Rare is the time when I have to turn the key more than once.

  5. I have a 2000 Johnson 115, runs like a champ - and I do a horrible job of winterizing stuff!! In my experience, way better than the FICHT.
  6. You'll want at least 25' of rope. The shorter the rope, the more chance you'll have for that 10 pound walleye to run nose first into your sock. Longer rope is better, if you need to go faster, get a smaller sock.

  9. In regards to bragging... Man with big fish does not take alley home - Chinese proverb In regards to skipping church on Sunday... Some go to church and think about fishing, others go fishing and think about God Justification for skipping church on Sunday... The gods do not deduct from man's allotted span the hours spent in fishing In regards to lying to your wife about how much you spent at Cabelas... My biggest worry is that my wife (when I'm dead) will sell my fishing gear for what I said I paid for it And my all time favorite (this one's deep fellas)... Many men go fishing all of their lives without knowing that it is not fish they are after - Henry David Thoreau
  10. Keep in mind that experience plays a lot into what your boat can handle. Very capable boats have sank or nearly sank due to inexperienced operators. I have a 17' Crestliner TS and wouldn't think about going out in 3 footers (which are usually over-exaggereated as 6 footers by many people). Time on the water will tell you what you can handle.
  11. After using both the Vexilar FL-8 and the Lowrance x67C, I'll take the Lowarance any day. And to be clear, the x67C has a TFT screen, not an LCD. The difference being the TFT screen has a diode for each pixel, which creates heat, eliminating the slow down you would see with an LCD.
  12. From what I have read, walleye would not be a good option for cooking on a plank. This method should be reserved for oily fish like salmon and trout. I've never tried walleye this way so if someone can prove me wrong I would love to hear about the results!
