    Leech was brutal...

    Fished Leech 9-2-05 thru 9-5-05. Bite seems to be picking up a bit. 4 catches and 14 follows. 44,45, and 2-48's. Most of the fish were caught and seen when we had cloud cover and did the best on the weeds.

    Leech was brutal...

    I fished leech the 19th thru the 21st and had a little luck. 4 follows and one 43" catch. A few others I talked to had some follows, but nothing special.

    Lowrance 332c or a handheld?

    I've got the 332c and love it. I also have a hand held in the boat on a ram mount to mark spots I want to try for ice fishing.

    Where do you store your boat?

    If you fish in north central wisconsin or visit the area. You can find a 10x24 storage garage for $50 a month.

    ATV recommendations?

    Go and test drive them, see what you like. They all will have problems at some point. They all have +'s and -'s. The quality is getting better on all of them for the most part. Some features to keep in mind: Weight, ground clearance, brakes(drums or discs), locking differentials vs. limited slip, fuel injection, independant suspension and warranty. A lot of dealers will try to sell you on the brand they carry, so plan on shopping around.
  6. I take a lot of beginners fishing and let them pick from my rods. Most of them like the 7'6" St. Croix with Abu 5500c3. I used one for many years as my only rod, and does fairly well. However if you are shorter, you may want a different rod. It also can depend on what type of boat you are fishing out of. You definatley want one heavier than an once and a half if casting jerk or crank baits.

    How good is my Honda????

    I have to laugh at all you die hard atv brand guys out there. I could take 5 atv's in each engine class (300cc, 350cc, 400cc, 500cc, 600cc and over 600cc) and I guarantee you I wouldn't pick the same brand in every class. Every class in my mind has a different one that stands out. First thing you need to decide is what you are going to use it for. That will tell you if it's a good quad for you. I would say that you have yourself a very nice utility quad, decent power, easy to drive, relatively low maintinance . A so-so trail machine and off-road quad. Because in my book you need a front locking differential and at least 10" of minimum ground clearance to make a good off road quad. Then again, that is just my opinion. I guess the only person that you have to ask if it's a good quad is yourself. If you answer no, then you bought the wrong one. Good luck with the honda.

    steel vs aluminum

    A lot of machines are now coming with aluminum rims for weight savings. It doesn't take much weight added to the wheels to bog down a machine. We took the aluminum's off of our grizzly and put steel with 26" Vampire ASX's and it feels like a dog. Those tires are extremely heavy compared to stock, I'd venture to guess 10-20 lbs. per wheel/tire combo.

    Wabigoon River & Clay Lake

    Couldn't tell you much about wabigoon river. We did see and catch quite a few big ones out of Lake Wabigoon near Dryden, Ontario last summer.
  11. Has anyone stayed at the Northwest Angle on lake of the woods? Is it a good area to musky fish? What is a good place to stay at? We usually stayed at Souix Narrows and made the run in the boat over near wiley point and up to witch bay. Looking to change it up a little bit. Any info would be much appreciated.

    Rear Independant Suspension

    As far as the front suspension I am not sure. I never had the front of mine apart when I had it. It was always the rear boots that tore and I had to replace the boots and clean the CV joints and regrease them.

    Leaders (again, sorry)

    I also make my own leader and all are single strand. I've never had a problem. Just have to check them every once and a while for wear or crimps from fish. Make sure to get good snaps and bearings. It's relatively cheap to make them compared to buying also.

    Ranger 618T for Muskie Fishing

    I'm not sure about the tiller model, but I believe the console model has an optional rear deck extension.
