  1. I would like to thank Don Rothmeier at Heckler Tackle. He donated some SWEET muskie lures to the St. Francis High School Ice fishing fundraiser. I completely agree with one of your customers who stated "Them paint jobs make them look more like a piece of art than a lure." We raised about $1800 for the HS woodshop and Ind. Tech. program. I'm just starting muskie fishing and I plan to contact Don for a couple of lures for myself. Thanks again, Chris Neises
  2. My brother in law and I braved the cold rain on a small Metro lake and had a limit of eyes by 9:00. I hated to leave when the bite was that hot, but my fingers were starting to become painful. Note to self: don't forget the gloves again.
  3. My Jeep Grand Cherokee is a two wheel drive with the inline 6. I have fished the Metro Lets for the last three years and many other places here and in Wisconsin with ease. I get at least 25 MPG unleaded and just under 20 with a fairly heavy boat. I am an old "farm boy", and a pretty good driver if I do say so myself, but my wife and others have pulled me out of the water just as well. I am amazed at how many people I know immediately push the 4WD button (usually high range) when they only need to be in low range. When I drive out to my icehouse I usually don't stray to far from the road though. I'd like to think if I ever need a tug there will be an FM'er nearby. With price of gas I might find myself shore fishing more
  4. Another consideration is the whether or not you REALLY need four wheel drive. just shake my head when I see all of these ridiculous vehicles pulling boats when they could just as easily be towed with a two wheel drive and save a lot of gas doing it. I use a two wheel drive Grand Cherokee with a fairly heavy boat and have traveled all over with no problems. The only toowing accessory I had installed was a transmission cooler.
  5. I'd like to suggest a few possible choices for the event this Sat. 1.Eagle/Pike (Maple Grove) 2.Coon Lake 3.Bald Eagle 4.White Bear 5.Linwood
  6. If you have a universal sonar system on a Minnkota trolling motor, I believe Vex is your only option. I loved my fl-18 on the front of my boat, but I'm starting to enjoy the FL-10 on my dash as much.
  7. Does anyone have directions to the site from the East on 94? Any help would be appreciated as I don't think I will be able to scout the area and I would hate to be late..
  8. Are there any other FMer's planning to fish this event now that the Metro league allows individual event participation?
  9. Coon is a great northern lake. Find cabbage..#4 Mepps red/white-no tail...and hang on
  10. I have heard of some way of rigging with an o-ring which will help save some of the wear and tear on Senkos. Can anyone help me with this?
  11. Frabill makes a net holder that also provides places for other tools.
  12. Looks like it might be a bit cooler on Saturday. I went there today and looked around. I had prop toubles so that cut my prefishing to about an hour. I got a good look at the lake on the slow ride back to the landing. Looks like it will be a good event.
  13. Has any decision been made to allow individuals to compete in the remaining events?
  14. Wish we would have headed out to the main lake and tried those humps. I thought I' stay in the north arm and work the west bays. We found fish there on Labor Day, but apparently had moved on. Ridiculous numbers of crappies in those areas though. Rob, Have you given any more thought to opening up for individual events, and adding another lake? I'm pretty much agreeable to anything. A small lake like Coon would be kind of fun.
  15. I have a FL-18 mounted to my Minnekota. I have caught loads of walleyes I wouldn't have without it. I upgraded to the universal sonar system. I think it is well worth the extra $$'s just to avoid the wiring mess. Also the Vex has the low power option which I don't think the marcum does.
  16. Any ideas for the aditional lake. I'll suggest Bald Eagle, Coon, White Bear, or Pool 4 in Lake City.
  17. Caught a couple of walleyes on Crooked Lake. Cold and rainy, then sunny.....weird day.
  18. On the LETS HSOforum, (fishingsavvy.com)the "about LETS" Metro Section states 6 events. We have also fished 6 events for each of the last two seasons. If we might need to restructure the payouts we should consider adding the extra event.
  19. I noticed on the LETS site the Metro league will have 6 events. Are we missing one? If so, is there a possibility of adding another event?
  20. WWG I was thinking about the same thing. Possibly the closer locations. I'll e-mail you.
  21. This is one of the best products I have ever purchased.
  22. You will need the high speed transducer. It is simple to mount. You will love the FL-10. It's an awesome unit.
