  1. my old man and his group just returned from Makwa and they did decent. Found the fish in shallow as 3 feet of water. Good Luck on your trip Bob!
  2. I completed the survey. A lot of questions on live bait which is a joke of a deal when a bait cooler is involved with an aerator...I do not change water when I have clean water and an aerator to keep bait fresh so why make me change the water at the landing?
  3. When you say you save $50-$80 a month, can I ask what you were paying before and what services were in that package? I am paying $100 a month for Dish. I have 2 receivers with one of them controlling 2 tv's and the other receiver controlling 1 TV. I have the sports package but not other extras such as HBO, Showtime, ETC... I was considering possibly changing since I only watch sports NFL n NBA and the wife only watches basic tv channels and HGTV and my kids watch youtube and Netflix and rarely watch regular tv it seems. Just trying to get idea's...
  4. the new bait shop is on 169 north over by Sammy's Pizza, Chanticlear Pizza, and Play it Again Sports.
  5. They have a good assortment of bobby garland crappie plastics, bunch of bass jigs and plastics, bunch of rapala's, VMC products!, bait, rods, reels and assortment of line. They didn't have all the shelves filled yet but they are working on it with vendors or something like that...Good Luck!
  6. Noticed a new tackle shop in Elk River the other week and found time to stop in and look things over. DH Custom Rods & Tackle North. Bought a few items and felt the selection was decent as they have items that I can't find at the revamped (imo crappy) Cabela's fishing section! Nice to see a tackle shop to replace Ebner's. Give them a look as we all know if you don't support your local bait n tackle shop they won't be there long!!
  7. Cool birds and awesome views I am sure! Congrats to the both of you on your success!!
  8. who knows...the players play hard for him and he is a basketball junkie with a family pedigree of being good coaches. I am fine with Saunders at this time but am curious as to if they will make a front office move and not hold them back from making moves.
  9. if you are gonna customize it for me I would have to have a good fishing rod tube! built in gun locker or even bow case into the truck bed hidden, have to have the remote start through the app (it is so nice!), truck bed lights. The other stuff mentioned would be nice also! a good brush guard would be nice also
  10. Good Luck! Issues on newer vehicles stink!
  11. still comes into play a lot today as this is typical in insurance policies.
  12. just remember that water will follow the path of least resistance, meaning that it may look like it is all contained to one area but the water may have been running across a beam to another area altogether. I work in insurance and see and hear very unique situations often!.
  13. I know this is an old post but was researching sauna's in the forum as I am in the middle of a build...Bear55 I think you are still around the site...did you ever build the indoor sauna? I am building an electric heated sauna in my basement currently. I am about to install the cedar. I am really excited for this as for the last year+ I have been going to the Y for the sauna daily and love the relaxation and health benefits it provides!! Anyone else out here have an indoor sauna?
  14. I have had one for 10+ years. When ever I am sore or tight I get the foam roll out and start rolling out the area. Great personal maintenance item for sure! Good purchase!
  15. we all have been there, either making the dumb mistake, or foreseeing the mistake about to happen, and came out ok LUCKILY!! It is amazing after things happen, to sit down, decompress, and try to gather your thoughts, on how many different ways that situation could have turned into a way worse deal! Hopefully none of us has been part of these situations where they didn't turn out OK and not everyone made it home that night...I sure would not want to have to deal with those memories for my lifetime! Glad you are OK and the snowmobiler came out OK and hopefully learned a life lesson!!
  16. I sold my boat 5 years ago because family needs and can't justify buying a new one yet. I planted the idea last fall with the wife though and in the next 2 years I will find and purchase our family boat!! Patience
  17. wish I could help ya spend ur $$$ but I am not informed much on those particular boats, but I am jealous and envy your situation! Both options sound great! Report back and include pics of your new rig when you make a decision! Good Luck
  18. I have been preaching this to the AIS people at the launches forever! The dumbest system for prevention ever!! Between the wake boats, and the way they clean boats EXITING an "invasive free" lake instead of before they launch has been 2 reasons I hate stopping to let them even check my boat! So frustrating, when you are conscience of the fact of AIS, so you do things to prevent the issue such as bringing your bait in a controlled cooler with aerator, and the goof at the landing says "dump the water" and you watch a wake boat launch knowing 100% they have water in their tanks from the last lake they partied at is a system they need to resolve ASAP!!!!! Glad research has proved what my uneducated brain has known for many years!!! How hard is it to figure out that a boat that intakes hundreds of gallons of water and cannot empty completely is the major problem when basically many of our invasives came by way of ships emptying their ballast tanks in the great lakes!
  19. There I might have made it a little easier to read Hope we are all still around in another 10 years!!
  20. I just looked and saw that I was also a 10 year member on this site as of 12/11/2008...got me wondering if the fishingmn site was different, as I recall joining in march during a spring crappie boom on red. Sure enough I joining that site as of March 2 2005. It has been a great site to be a part of and have had great conversations, learned a lot, and have sadly seen too many members pass away. Very odd on that part when I find myself shedding a tear for people I had no connection to other than the love of the outdoors and reading and exchanging info on the interweb!
  21. Great advice and sounds like you have had some great times on the great Upper Red Lake! The difference on Red from having a good day to a great day can be as much as moving 20 feet away! From what you explain I would try to befriend a local or rent an ice auger and bring with the cold gear. Rent your house like you are and then throw the auger in the car and explore or just pop holes in the area of your house so you can get out enjoy the uniqueness of fishing outside and your chances for landing more fish increases greatly opposed to hard house fishing. Good Luck!!
  22. If time allows I will get out for a couple walks in the woods with the muzzy. I didn't get anything with the gun and have yet to buy a bow license cuz time was spent chasing fall walleyes opposed to deer. Good Luck to those that get out!!
  23. I think the trade sucks if they actually had the Heat's offer of Josh Richardson and a 1st round pick plus another player...even Richardson and the first round pick would be better then Saric, Covington, and a 2022 2nd! Maybe I am off on this (Saric and Covington aren't the worst return) but looking back I wish they had stuck with Lavine, Markinen, and Dunn! Oh well glad to put this behind us and start the healing process!! hope Butler brings the 76ers and their "Process" down!! Go Wolves!!
  24. well that is cool Dusty! Staying in deer camp for 10+ days sounds fun as you have plenty of times to hunt and not feel obligated to go out every morning or stay out all day! Good Luck!!
