    Humminbird helix

    I could always go and spend more money on an additional unit but some of it is like Floyd said. I have a hard enough time watching one screen. I have the app on my phone. I think that lowrance has the ability to split the screen into 4. I just can't believe I'm the only person who would like to see this but maybe I am. It may not be as big a deal once I get more familiar with the unit. Right now I like to look at all the screens to help discern what it is im seeing on the screen. I appreciate the input!

    Humminbird helix

    I upgraded my electronics this year to a Humminbird Helix 10. I love it so far with the exception of not being able to split the screen into 4 separate screens. The max that you can do is 3. I would really like to be able to have the map, sonar, down imaging, and side imaging on the screen at the same time while trolling. I emailed tech support and they said it's not something that is an option at this time. Right now when I'm fishing I switch back and forth between map, sonar, and DI and sonar, DI, and SI. Is there anyone else that thinks this should be an option? I don't know see why you can't customize the screen to show whichever features you prefer instead of only using the preloaded options that Humminbird decided on. I have thought about emailing the company weekly asking if they have that ability yet but wanted to see if anyone else thinks it should be an option.

    Bourbon and Whiskey

    I tried a few new ones the last couple weeks. The first was Evan Williams 1783. Very good over ice or mixed with a splash of water. Plenty smooth and good enough that I got a second bottle to replace the one that somehow became empty. Price was about $16. 12 foot beard. This was ok and smooth enough to drink over ice. The best part about this one was that someone else bought it. Price was about $30 a bottle. It was good enough to drink on someone else's dime but I don't think I'd buy it myself. I also tried a bottle of Redemption. This was very good over ice and about the closest thing I've found to the Trader Joe's bourbon that I like. Price was about $18 a bottle. Definitely one that I would buy again. I dont know why but I like the bottle with a cork and not a screw off cap. The Redemption and Beard both had corks.
  4. I am new to the 4 stroke world and need to change the fluids in my 05 Suzuki 115 four stroke. What does everyone use for oil, filter, and lube? I was planning on using Mobil 1 or Amsoil 10-40 for the engine oil and the Lucas 90w gear oil for the lower unit. I don't know what filter to get. I know Fram has a filter that fits the motor. I run synthetic oil in my vehicles along with the filters designed for synthetic. I change my own oil and figure the peace of mind is worth the extra few bucks. Any opinions?

    Bourbon and Whiskey

    I picked up a bottle of Old Forester the other day for something new. I thought is was pretty good. Plenty smooth over some ice.

    Engel bait coolers

    That's what my backup plan is. I'm pretty sure that's what I'll be doing. I haven't been able to figure out what the little tray was good for. I always kept crawlers in there but it only fit a container or two in it.

    Engel bait coolers

    They do sell them but it's just the one big net for the entire cooler. That's more than likely what I'll end up doing. I just think that 2 separate net areas would be a little more handy.

    Shaffer Opposition

    I've never used one but I've seen a few on bows at archery shoots and at the range. The same people use them year after year and transfer them to their new bows. I've never really been sold on them. I feel like there is more that could go wrong with that than some of the other rests on the market. Seems like the sliders could get dirty and hang up or start acting up when it's cold like Brule said. Of course if you're shooting a drop away of any kind something could always go wrong. All that said I have heard good things about Schaefers warranty and him standing behind his products. I have a NAP Apache on my bow that has been great and has thousands of arrows through it. The next rest I buy will be a QAD Ultra rest though.

    Navionics App... Favorite Feature?

    I've been playing around with the shading as well. It really helps when scouting new lakes to help narrow down potential spots and chop the lake down. I didn't know this feature even existed until talking with a friend the other day about how we setup our depth finders and he said he starts with a wide depth range in the morning and if he starts seeing a pattern depth wise he will start closing the range. I checked the app and sure enough it's in there. When I got home I figured out how to do it on the depth finder in the boat. I also like it when out on the lake to figure out where I'm headed next. My phone is much quicker than my graph for jumping around. On a side note, has anyone else been sitting in their boat dreaming about open water? I haven't been able to get out much this winter with kids activities taking up a lot of time and when nothing is scheduled it's way too cold. I think I've drank more beer in my boat this winter than I did all summer!

    Engel bait coolers

    I picked one up last spring and love it. Keeps the minnows much more lively and as long as you keep the water clean you can keep bait from week to week. I did notice they have now changed the design a little and now instead of that useless tray there's a net that fits in the cooler. The net would be much handier than the tray. I'm working on making 2 nets that would fit next to each other in their cooler to keep minnows separate. My only hang up right now is what to use for the wire frame.

    Vex or Marcum

    If you are down near the cities you may be able to swing by and pick it up. I wouldn't be hesitant about buying one of their recon units.

    Vikings VS. Saints

    I guess when I made that statement I was wrongly assuming it would be much colder than that. In that case, it should be a nice October game just like a couple years ago at TCF.

    Vikings VS. Saints

    I think I'm still in shock that it worked out the way it did. It was a typical Vikings playoff roller coaster that for once ended on a good note. The icing on top is that it was the saints that it happened against. It sucks that the next game will be in the cold at the eagles but of the 3 other teams left, I'd pick the eagles to play against especially without Wentz.

    That's awesome! Great picture as well. There's nothing better than a blood trail in the snow!

    Help for Condensation

    Reflectix may be worth a try but it'll more than likely require more cutting in a hub house. I installed it in a flip over I had and it worked great. I have thought about using something like a heavy moving blanket also. That may be easier to install each time than the reflectix but I would guess you'll need to lay it out after each trip to dry out. If I ever get around to trying the blanket I would spray the one side down with some of that never wet spray or some sort of silicon spray and use that side against the canvas to try cut down on how much water it would soak up.
