All right guys, you're gonna hear it from somebody else, so I'll just come out and admit it.
Today I decided I would go out and try my luck on clearwater lake. Little did I know that I had everything but luck. all right I'll stop beating around the bush. I forgot to put the plug in. Hey some people have to learn the hard way and I'm one of them. So I backed in tied it up, parked my truck and got In and fired the motor up to take off. Then I look behind me to see how the trim was doing and I see water all the way up behind me. So I spent the first half hour of my trip giving the bilge a workout. There, I feel better. Oh yeah, I got 5 11 inch crappies and about 50 bass. The fish appear to be moving closer to the shallows, but they're not in large numbers yet. oh well not to long til opener.

Well, you have to admit that you did this now and not on opener when you have EVERYONE watching you. Hubby and I have been there and done that. But, it's always embarrassing no matter when you do it and how many people are watching. Glad to see you actually got out and caught some fish.

I have also failed to even bring the plug along. That is when you have to be creative. I have used wads of grass, assorted wadded up garbage, or even a plug carved from some alder on the bank. That one actually worked pretty well so I saved it for a back-up!

hmmmmmm! so this would be a good hint to buy a spare plug and KEEP it in the boat!!

Actually I am thinking of putting mine on a chain right on the front of the boat so that when I unhook the boat from the trailer I will see it and hopefully remember to put it in the boat at that time!!!!

Did it too! Last year. It took about 5 minutes to get it up on plane carrying all that water and then 10 minutes of driving around without the plug in to get the water drained out. I had a witness too, not that I wanted one!ScottS

Scotts, you are lucky....you won't believe how vertical a boat can travel on water shocked.gif my little 14' with 200gallons of water and (thank godness) a 30hp took 20 minutes to get empty, 10 minutes to get on a plane. The thing was pointing at satellites in the sky...I thought I could get PayPerView from DSS....

But that was the confirmation of that if you forget plug...you can still empty the boat and don't sink it.

Hi Bigguns!

Gosh, I would have never disclosed that information to anyone, especially after I promised you I wouldn't!

It happens to the best of us once in awhile.

    • 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.
