  1. I like the new Helix series - the Humminbird Helix 5 SI goes for under $500. You can do a transducer exchange for the thru-hull (hole in kayak) version.
  2. I just ordered 5 of the Batson .385x.105x72 solidglass series to make into laker rods. That was the most suggested blank while doing searches for lake trout ice rods that I came across.
  3. +1. As far as the multiplier inlines go, it's junk, junk and more junk IMO.
  4. My buddy made an adapter and runs his Nils 8" on his ION with great success. We were a little hesitant considering the slower rotational speed of the ion compared to the Tanaka powerhead, but it cuts super smooth.
  5. Get a clam drill plate extension, they fit the Ion and are adjustable. I believe the shortest hole gives 6 inches of extension.
  6. The older versions of the reata 186 and 210 previously had a hull that was more of a bass boat design. I believe they are all more of a multi-species designed hull now like the early reata 1850vs.
  7. I'm on my third set of the WR series for my car. I drive a lot and get good life and handling with them. A little expensive, but a better option than running two sets of tires IMO.
  8. To decode and find the movie files, I use MakeMKV. I then use Handbrake to trans-code into MP4 format.
  9. I recommend them. We have a Tab S and an older Tab pro, both are super devices.
  10. My Peet boot dryer doesn't have a fan either and only puts out a bit of heat. If you let it run with your boots over the dryer, the inside of the boots should feel fairly toasty after a little while. If the boots aren't warming, the heater is likely shot.
  11. Nothing wrong with ordering 30" rods either.
  12. I suggest getting a vexilar and run the risk of a bit of interference now and again. It is a better tool for marking fish immediately under the ice.
  13. One of my favorite methods to weed is to use a large propane torch; the Red Dragon brand are commonly available at places like Northern Tool, or Fleet Farm. If you're seeds haven't sprouted you can go fairly aggressively over the entire area, basically kill everything that is growing. If your seeds have sprouted, you can lay a segment of metal gutter, or something similar over the sprouts to protect them as you go. Oscillating stirrup style hoes are also pretty handy. They are also commonly called scuffle or hula hoes. Ammann and Glaser make good ones. A good sharp bladed hoe will clean
  14. It's a solid motor except for the foot control IMO. I went through a foot control every year before getting the terrova. I've gone five years on the terrova and I'm only on my second pedal.
  15. I researched this quite a bit. The thing that really jumped out at me was that the E-tec has a way bigger alternator capacity compared to the others.
  16. We hauled a blue 1-man kayak into the Windmill Marina on 5/3. It was mostly submerged and floating downstream near the marina. We left it on the dock. It looked like it had been in the water for only a short amount of time. It didn't have any name or registration on it.
  17. Anyone have any feedback on the quality of these ball bearing swivels? I'm looking to order a pile of welded ring swivels and these are by far the cheapest available. You can order a 50pk for about $30 from a number of places. thanks for your time.
  18. You'll get minimally twice what they offer for a core exchange at most places by bring it directly to a scrap facility. The last time I brought in old deep cycle batteries, I got close to $100 for the three. I think the prices are down a bit for lead compared to that time. I found prices from .25-37 cents a lb for car batteries. There are a bunch of places along the river north of downtown Minneapolis, also there is a place north of Hugo and one in Cambridge that I know of.
  19. The purpose of this fact sheet The purpose of this factsheet is to provide the legal requirements related to the harvesting, sale, and purchase of wild mushrooms. Regulations on Wild Mushroom Sales The Minnesota Department of Agriculture (MDA) has specific regulations for individuals who harvest and wish to sell wild mushrooms. To learn more about becoming an MDA approved source, or to inquire about an MDA license, call the MDA Dairy and Food Inspection Division at 651-201-6027. There are specific regulations in the Minnesota Food Code (Minnesota Rules, Chapter 4626) regarding wild mushroo
  20. For trolling cranks with braid, folks typically use a linecounter setup. IMO, it's way more useful to run a counter with braid than it is with leadcore. If you really need to cast, maybe upgrade to a newer ambassador and possibly run some metered braid?
  21. MinnKota suggests a 60 amp is warranted for the 50# PD.
  22. Typically counties offer pretty cheap bare-root trees through their water and soil conservation programs. Washington Co is $35 per 25 trees for the different species offered. Tree pickup is April 26th here.
  23. We've got a pretty long driveway, it's packed dirt and gravel with some really old patches of decaying asphalt. Essentially every third year we get a few yards of class 5 delivered, more than we need in one year anyway since most of the cost of the material is delivery. I usually spread about half right away to the areas in need of grading, then I move the remainder to a concrete pad for use in the subsequent years to fill as needed. I have a compact tractor with loader bucket, but a wheelbarrow would certainly work to get it to the areas needing the fill. Most of the work is done with a s
  24. Yeah, using first year plant starts for onions is very important, not only for size, but also for storage potential. The little onion bulbs are going into their second year of life; as a biennial, they really want to make seed during the second year, they have a lot more going on than just growing like the first year plants.
  25. I don't know the most recent compatible chip, but pretty sure that 09 and older work with the H2O.
