Feeling cheated

Having a hard time dealing with the fact that our fall fishing season was almost non exsistant or should I say much to fast and much to short. I for one just cant bring myself to the point of winterizing the boat just yet so I am going for one more blast this weekend probably one of the Brainerd area lakes.We have done real well the last month and I am sad to see another open water season comming to a close

No! I've got long johns,..chopper mits,..layers of fleece I haven't even put on yet,...hooded sweatshirts,...wool socks,...sorels,...you name it. I love hard H2O as much as the next guy/gal but that transition from first ice to travelable ice is kinda tough on me.I just don't deal with it very well,...ask my wife she'll tell you.
I have got to keep the open water season going until the serious snow and ice comes to stay. Then I bow out to jack frost and old man winter.But I still need a little more convincing. Please, just a little more sun?!-TROY

I just heard the weatherman say that not this coming weekend, but the one after, temps could be in the 60's! Go for it guys - we already put our boat away. Guess I will have to settle for washing windows. UGH

I know what you mean but just because the weather is a little on the cold side doesn't mean its all over.The fish are still biting and I heard some one on this site say"there is no bad weather just bad clothing"or something like that.Put your winter clothes on and get out.Heck I never put the boat away.Its always ready to go!

WW, don't do it! don't put the boat away!

Last year when we had that early snowstorm I put away my boat thinking we were doomed to have an early winter. Well wouldnt you know it all melted and it was in the 50s the rest of the month!

This october has been nearly record cold, but you never know, november could be fantastic! I predict at least a month more open water fishin' to come.

Of course there WAS that rather large flock of snow geese that flew over us last weekend while fishing Big Birch. We all know where they come from right? It's a tad bit early to see them around these parts. Perhaps I should think about winterizing a few things myself,...hmmm.TROY

I'm afraid El Nino won't get here soon enough! Went out to Boulder with my good buddy today, awful wind out of the northwest, near white caps, big motor wouldn't work and the trolling motor would hardly keep up. Good thing the 8hp kicker came through. Air temp started out at 39, but soon dropped to 34. But the warmest water we found was 34.7 degrees! We think one minnow suffered a light strike. It saddens me, but I'm fearful that we can kiss 2002 open water fishing soon goodbye!

    • 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. 🤗    
    • I picked up some impulse mayfly plastics and mud bug jigs. I have tried plastics in the past with mixed results. I expect good things from the impulse mayflys. It would be nice not to have to mess with live bait.
    • Like Mike said, location is going to be key to giving you recommendations. The types of activities you want to engage in and price you are willing to pay can also be factors as well as how old your camper is in some instances.
