Hello Everyone

Recommended Posts

Well I went to my first sportshow of the year last weekend. I wasn't very impressed with the show, but I had a good time. It was just a small one nothing like the one in Minnapolis.

I've been thinking a lot about getting a new camper. I should say a newer used one or just remodeling the inside of the one we got.
I like how the newer ones are so bright inside. When ours was made they used darker paneling.

Last year at this time I was about going crazy with fishing fever. Luckly It hasn't hit me yet. I've been pretty busy. We are going to put our big old country house up for sell and move to town to a much smaller house.

This year has gone fast. It was last year about this time that I found this web site. I've learned a lot from here over the year from fellow fisher people. When you can't be out there fishing this is a great place to come visit.

It will soon be time to pull out all the tackel boxs rods and reels for there cleaning and relining. Are there any new lines out this year that sound good to try?

Well open water will be coming soon. Are you ready?

Hi Mary: Well, I had fishing fever really bad until a few days ago when winter hit here! -15 tonight - I do not like this!!!!!I went to the first Fargo boat show a few weeks ago and it too was a disappointment, but we are going to the big one in Fargo tomorrow which should be a lot better. Too cold to do anything else except clean house anyway, and the house will still be here when we get home.

Actually got the husband to go with me - I think it had something to do with the fact that he is going to a horse sale in 2 weeks and I explained that if he wanted someone to feed horses while he was gone he best be going to this boat show. I just have such a way about me!

We have been busy doing some fix up things in the house this winter so I can play this summer. A (divorced) friend of ours was over last night and said he should probably be doing some stuff in his house but was just not inspired. My husband offered to lend me to him to b---- at him until he gets it done for a couple of weeks. Nice guy.

Oh well, looking forward to summer - it has to be here pretty soon. I think we should title this site "Gals that like to fish in the summer"!

I am sure I will know everything that is new on the market after tomorrow.

Hi Mary: Well, since I had the husband along it was not good shopping. Every time I started to look at something he walked off. One thing I did see at the first show was a minnow bucket with kind of a spout so you could pour out one minnow at a time which would really be nice in cold weather. But I could not find one at this show. Of course there were lots of really nice expensive boats, but did not get a chance to see much else. Dave from In Fisherman gave a really good talk on Walleye fishing. Can't believe I spent the whole day there and only came home with some fishing clogs. Last year my daughter and I did a really good job on our credit cards! Now if this weather would just straighten up so the ice would leave I would feel a lot better.

    • This evening I will reset the live trap.   So far my peanut dough blocks from Menards have only been lasting a day or two, thanks to midnight ramblers....   Score so far is two racoons and a possum.   I wonder what morning will bring... if it stops raining.   
    • I fish a big reservoir that goes as deep as 140 I believe and we do a bit of trolling over the deep parts of the lake.  In fact at night you can troll and your graph will be littered with fish in the 20-50ft range starting over 70ft of water but if you go to 60ft depth range your graph will be empty. Once the deep darkness of night falls those same fish will show 30-70ft deep on the graph suspending over 140ft of water.   We seem to mostly catch walleyes out of this group of fish and rarely catch anything else.
    • These feeders are only partially blackbird proof, as they can still poke their heads in and peck at the food a little bit. I don’t use the suet one much, because only downy woodpeckers can fit in there. 
    • This feeder is blackbird proof for the sole purpose that only woodpeckers and nuthatches can eat upside down. I purposely angle it this way so it’s easier for the pileated woodpeckers to hang on.
    • It only takes about 5 Mb/s to stream a HD movie.   I'm guessing you have some sort of interference going on.   Inadequate BW shows up as buffering....   Or the Roku is going bad.   I have had a couple of them do that, including a roku stick.      My money is on roku device being bad.   If you have a chromecast, does that work better?   
    • Milwaukee Fishing Eezy Peezy! By Milwaukee Wisconsin fishing charter Capt. Jim Hirt Lake Michigan Salmon Fishing Report 6/24/2019 Hello all, thank you for reading my reports. Joe, Laura and Jonathan Wolf from Mansfield Texas had fair weather and a multi species catch on a beautiful day on Lake Michigan. I enjoyed the opportunity to fish with them. Join us in Milwaukee! To get my fish reports and how to videos first go to http://www.jimhirt.com By subscribing you will keep ahead of the other anglers. When I post you will get it fast! Action is steady and all species are active. The water is still 50 degrees on top. This has made for easy presentation to fish. As long as this continues anglers will have success don’t miss out. Good weather and lake conditions will fill the cooler in the future. The water is warming up near shore and that area is slow. There are pods of forage from 70 feet and out to 200. The recent changes has brought many Chinooks and Coho in. Most of the fish came from the top to the bottom. Our best presentations are Church Walleye planer boards with 150 and 225 copper running 40 to 65 down and downriggers 80 to 120 feet down. Flasher and Bull Frog flies or 100 foot leads on Reaper magnum spoons on downriggers have been the best producers. Reaper magnum spoons are sold at http://www.badgertackle.com with free shipping. Our best boat speed was 2.0 mph. Wire Divers are producing very well set to #2 with 130 feet of line out. Have a great fishing season. Let's go fishing!!

    • Well, after two and a half hours on the phone with Netgear and Comcast I have no resolution.  Comcast is coming out to the house on Wednesday to see what the problem is.  I am on the 150 mbs plan and I still only get around 30 on a speed test.  Even when I wire directly to the router the performance is the same.  I may upgrade to the Roku Ultra as well.
    • The speeds that you show are enough for streaming, the roku stick is not their best streaming device. I use Roku 3 and used to have your bandwidth with no problem.
