  1. Dark Cloud did you tape the line and then spool or did you just knot it and then spooled it? Wondering if there's any slip if I did the latter?
  2. I got there Friday at around 1:15 and around 1:45 that thing was packed shoulder to shoulder already. I made a few purchases, but really I had a hard time looking at items because there were so many folks there. Plus I totally missed out on the HSO booths.. well the whole 2nd level entirely! They should've put up some signs or something!
  3. Picked up the last BB6061 at Joe's this morning. Mounted it on my Fenwick Icetech and it feels great!
  4. This year was a very quiet year.. Not alot of gun shots at all. I didn't see anything all weekend. Just wondering how you guys did if you hunt up there?
  5. What's a good trail cam? My Stealthcam I bought a few years ago is garbage..
  6. -Clam Base Camp Thermal or old school Trap II -Vexilar FL-22HD, Vexilar FL8-SLT, and Vexilar FL-8 original -Jiffy Model 30 8" -iPhone 4S with Navionics Lake Maps -Assortment of fishing poles (Northland, South Bend, St. Croix) -Bunch of panfish jigs and jigheads and walleye jigs and jigheads -Vexilar Ice Fishing Suit -Big Buddy Heater -Coleman Rechargable Lantern -2011 Nissan Frontier Crew Cab 4x4 Long Bed to haul it all in!
  7. Guys, I have it at about 8-9 o'clock..
  8. Went out this past weekend, with my new FL-22. A sweet unit indeed. Though I've run into some stuff that bugged me! I had the settings at x3.. 12 degree settings. I would drop the lure down to about 15 feet, and it would cover the whole 0ft-15ft graph with green/red/orange marks for about 30seconds.. as soon as I would jig it would show more marks there, but they would disappear, as if my jig was giving off some kind of bubbles or something (no they're not fish!). Also It would read my lure, so let's say if I had my lure at 15ft it would show another mark at 20ft as if a double. So if i raised it up to 10ft, that mark would show at 15 ft (green mark) And then if I dropped it down to 25ft it would show another mark at 5ft on the graph.. Drop down another 5 and that mark goes down 10ft.. raise it up another 5ft.. you get the drift. There's nothing on my line besides the jig. It's a sweet unit, but these little things bug me! Is this a ducer issue?? Any help or input is greatly appreciated.
  9. The propack FL-20 is running $458.99 and the FL-22HD propack is running $489.99 at thorne bros.. Something expensive like this i'd like to get it new, just to have the piece of mind that it will still be covered under warranty.
  10. My dad and I used the original FL-8, and it's still here.. sentimental value. We moved on to the FL-8SLT with IR, but after fishing with some buddies with the Marcum LX7 and Vexilar FL-12's.. I felt my FL-8 was a little outdated.. and didn't do a great job with the IR. Fast forward 3 weeks later after that incident and a great deal from Thorne Bros. I now have the FL-22. :)I'm excited to use it this weekend at Lake Winni and Big Sandy!
  11. Just picked up an FL-22 from Thorne Bros. Hopefully it treats me just as good as the FL-8 did.
  12. The best price i've seen is $509.99 for the FL-22 @ Thorne Bros., those of you that have been shopping around have you seen any better deals?!
  13. OnAFly.. that's correct. That 24' was just alot of crappies. The other one only yielded a few small eyes. I will try that inside turn this week and see how it goes. Thanks for the tip.
