Recommended Posts


Have you ever considered listing the winners equipment when you post results.
This way us manufactures can have a little competative fun.
Hail the day as the Tip N Jig will be the choice of the top ten.

Really good idea Alan, but I for one am not about to give free advertising to companies who do not sponsor this site or our tourneys. I use, as do others a vast amount of gear and equipment that is made by companies not affiliated with this site......yet.
By us making these events more fun and making them more accessable to the "average Joe", I believe that MANY companies are missing the boat on this one. Once they realize that this is a great way to advertise and so forth, we can start to use names of products while talking about winning strategies. We do already, with those companies who do sponsor this site and our events, such as Scenic Tackle.
If we begin to name everything we use, what is the incentive for these companies to spend advertising dollars here? Absolutely none, why pay for something you are already getting for free. But thats just MHO smile.gif

Thanx for opening the door. I really understand the endorsement/sponsorship world.
In the late 70's early 80's my job was a grandprix motorcycle factory rider. I come from a world where, after the race, someone else would change my cap and shirt before the next camera shot. Even the stickers on the tool towers were paid space.
Today, as a manufacturers agent we invest $200,000.00 plus plus plus (lot's of sweat)to manufacture and bring our product to market. And that's okay. It's what you put behind your hopes and dreams.
One thing I've noted is that manufacturers have too much on their plate. Their world is based on things like; ounzes of plastic per injection, machine speeds and such - Things you can touch.
Maybe we should create a manufacturers competion with in each event. One hour or so.
Where there's four seperate types of contests. One contest could be - ice fishing teams and within each manufacturers team there's a line of products huts drills, buckets, Tip N Jig,the whole nine yards.
The idea works like a pit crew race against time thing. A team of ?? headed by a pro guide gets the "Complete Ice Fishing Adventure Kit" from the shore to set-up and working on ice. This kinda thing pulls T.V. and if you want to pull public audience you put the "Complete Ice Fishing Adventure Kits" up for grabs via the TV stations who cover the event.
If we we get enough positive comments alanmunroe.com would launch a manufacturers challenge and e-blitz the manufacturing sector.
What say thee!

    • So reviving a dead thread ..

      The "park switch" may be the cause of the parasitic draw on some of the console equipped models, 
      it's an inexpensive switch that sends a shutdown signal to the BCM. When it goes bad the dash lights do not shut off and it drains the battery. 
      Fords fix is to replace the whole shifter assembly at around $650.00, they do not sell just the switch. 
      Here is the replacement switch with an more detailed explanation of why it happens.

      Its under e bay listing 292931561061
    • I leave it behind on purpose at times..........
    • NOT in some of the places i go fishing.................AND most the time i go fishing to get away from said phone!!!!!!!
    • Sounds like a good seminar!
    • After starting out the winter with a lack of snow February is making up for it. Earlier in the week the southern half of the state received 4 to 6 inches of snow and in the last couple of days the north and northwest received from 4 to 8 inches of snow.Snowmobile trails are now open in most, but not all, counties across the state with conditions rated as good or excellent in many counties on the Wisconsin Department of Tourism's Snow Conditions Report (exit DNR). Many state properties were regrooming cross-country ski trails and ski trail conditions ranged from good to excellent. Some freezing rain fell in the south after the snow, resulting in some icy conditions in some locations. Temperatures are expected to warm this weekend, especially in the south where more rain is also in the forecast, while the north is expected to get more snow.With all the recent snow, conditions should be excellent for the American Birkebeiner Ski Race this weekend in the Hayward-Cable area. It is the largest ski race in North America and attracts thousands of skiers from all over the country and world -- skiers from 49 states and 36 countries participated in 2018 -- and draws tens of thousands of spectators to the area. .
    • I doubt it but you can call the DNR and ask. You can pull up the regs on a smart phone anyway.
    • ......The 6 packages from the first round are long-gone, so I am brining up another batch. Ended up buying an entire case of butts (@ $1.18 per #) from Sams. I am going to do 3 butts - one with High Mtn buckboard seasoning and two with another dry brine consisting of Tenderquick, brown sugar, garlic salt, and black pepper. I always like getting to the raw ingredients of spices versus relying on someones "magic rub". If it goes badly I will revert back to the HM cure. As an added note, I also picked up a $20 loin that I put HM cure on to experiment with some Canadian bacon.... Will check back in 10 days or so!  
    • if thats the case i hope there printing water proof versions!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i cant keep mine nice and tidy in the cab of my truck!!!!!!!
    • Have not heard this. Why just a boat? It needs to be in some peoples buckets to so when their 500 fish over their limit they can't say I no know, I no know? 🤷‍♂️
    • Got mine yesterday during the snow.  I was informed that there is a new rule requiring the MN Fishing Regulations be carried on your boat and that this new rule is not documented in the Regs.  Anyone know if this is fact or just a kindly recommendation?
