Yea for those that fished last year, this is probably going to add about 20 minutes onto your trip, but the fishing is well worth it. The fishing should be very good if the weather holds for all of us. Hopefully that weather forecast will change a bit between now and then...

Alright, I hope you guys in the Metro division are just being secretive. Last year we always had some talking on line before the event. I suppose if you all just want to concede defeat to unstoppable duo of "The bald and the Beautiful" then we will gracefully accept. By the way, I am the beautiful part of the team name.

I made it down with Mr. Clean (the bald one) to prefish last weekend. It was tough finding fish. We found a handful of good ones, but it was tough.

Has anyone else been fishing down there this week?? If so, where are they? What were you catching them on? and I'd like some GPS coordinates please.

I will have my secret weapons with me on Saturday. Mr. Bud and Mr. Weiser. It might be a slow day for fishing.......(or not).

Be careful getting out of the launch area. The bridge is narrow and Mr. Clean bumped the piling pretty good. A boat with 90" of beam or more fits really tight through there. Make sure you're paying attention and having your partner watch the other side of the boat.

P.S. This is an awful long way from the METRO. Plan accordingly.

Don't you mean the "Bold and the Beautiful?" Sounds like we have ourselves a new soap opera team to me grin.gif New reality show, starring you and Lance grin.gif Brian and I don't need GPS coordinates, we just follow our senses wink.gif I hope you bring plenty of your secret weapon, you're gonna need it grin.gif LOL

Ok, all joking aside, I'm looking forward to seeing you again and getting a chance to BS a little. Hanging out with you at the catfish event this past winter was a lot of fun, see you on saturday! Take care!

Good Fishin,
Matt Johnson

    • but ya have yer smurf glass there and it's ready to use too!!!
    • Was at Long Point this past weekend. Lots of small fish, no slots from us......
    • Ill let dealer plug into computer and see what shows up. 
    • Pigger steak on the grill, taters and corn. Yea yea, I get docked etiquette points for no serving dishes.
    • I suppose there is no check engine light code plug in on those like a car? Sometimes you can read and clear a misfire code. Did you try switching plugs out on the trail?
    • Had scratchers down but probably didn't matter much. Wasn't overheating and temp on gauge stayed at 160. Another guy in club thought it might also be bad gas and a misfire settting off check engine. Ill see what they come up with when they plug into computer. As far as electronic reverse lots of problems with it on internet. Fuse wasn't blown and I also bought and changed the 2 relays that people have had problems with and still nothing. I think the Servo motor crapped out as those have had problems to. I just hope it doesn't take to long to fix as spring is around the corner  
    • Wow, sorry to hear all that.I call it the Northshore curse!  Did you have your scratchers down? Or do you think it's just a short somewhere?  😟
    • it takes some practice. I was skeptical at first also but friends did great on them so made the switch and I use them 95% of the time for gills and crappies now.  Still learning
    • Made it up to Silver Bay for a ride on Saturday. Got about 15-20 miles down trail and sled starts to miss and wants to die and check engine light comes on. Shut it off and look things over and everything looks OK and not overheating. Start back up and runs fine for about 10 miles and does same thing. Did this about 4 times till we got to Trestle Inn. Im thinking its bad gas so was going to go put some premium in it to see if that helps. Start machine and put in reverse and back up and hit button to take out of reverse and nothing happens. Reverse fail comes up on gauges not good. Only good thing was stranded in Trestle Inn parking lot instead of woods. Gave guy I was riding with my car keys to come back with my truck and trailer and went and drank beer for a couple hours. Finally get everything back to motel and get organized and come back out to get some stuff out of truck and step on back of trailer and it flips up. Someone must have helped themselves to my tilt trailer pin as it would have never fell out on its own. Had to run to town on Sunday and round up a pin for trailer and dropping off sled at dealer tomorrow. At least its still under warranty.  
    • Thanks Presidents for the day off!  😁   Went back over to the same trails by Orock and hit it pretty hard to burn off some of the carbon I built up pulling the grandkids and sleigh around the other day. The trails were groomed and not bad but the groomer seemed to have put some pretty deep grooves in the trails around the corners. Never really saw that before anywhere? 🤔 There were a few folks out but no where near last weekend. My top end rebuild seems to be breaking in pretty well and the compression has been going up the last few rides so hopefully I'm almost there. 🤗
