Hate to say it but we are getting freezing rain and snow and are in a storm watch. So I think you may have to wait a little while longer. I think those boat people are just playing with our minds trying to get that spring itch going. grin.gif

You know that drifty floating place between awake and the coming sleep? - It's always Spring/Summer there, waiting for me to launch, sandals and shorts, not a jet-ski in sight, new line, the kids swear they're really gonna fish this time, and the best Maori chart in 50 years. Visit it every day.

Oh yeah, and when I visit this Spring/Summer place - it's not my 12' alumabeater with a 2horse putter - it's the boat on the billboard!

Robert, Suddenly I hear ya. While ice fishing is ok, open water is my true domain. My lil 80's 14' lund with 20 horse motor may not look like the most attractive thing to most people, but for me it's one of the best things in the world. You can't beat the simplicity and ease of one man operation of it. In my "dream" world a new 17' Boston Whaler might appear once in awhile... but even hearing that ol Johnson fire up is good enough for me.

    • yepper.............super bowl here we come!!!!!!!!!!!!!!😉
    • I just looked and saw that I was also a 10 year member on this site as of 12/11/2008...got me wondering if the fishingmn site was different, as I recall joining in march during a spring crappie boom on red.  Sure enough I joining that site as of March 2 2005.  It has been a great site to be a part of and have had great conversations, learned a lot, and have sadly seen too many members pass away.  Very odd on that part when I find myself shedding a tear for people I had no connection to other than the love of the outdoors and reading and exchanging info on the interweb!  
    • Camera are great. Shielded wire or wireless I use both. rl-sd good info on shielded, wireless I use 5.8ghz drone trans/rcvr effective and inexpensive all 12v run multiple devices, TV, monitors, tablet, smart phone.   Forced Air Furcace - only way to go. Ventless has CO issue and will put 4 gallons of water/moisture inside your house for every 20# of propane burned. If you go ventless bring a torch the following morning as the door will most likely be froze shut. I have a 6.5 x 12 WH, 19,000 BTU Suburban vented furnace well insulated took 9 min to heat from 8 deg to 70 deg. You will probably need to go to 25,000 minimum. My cealing at 82" and air duct to center of house & 4" round to door no ceiling fans. Have balanced temp all areas of house. On my next build I will add a second floor 2" and have a 12 x 2" channel from furnace to back of house with 8 x 2 multi channels to sides to duct heat. Fill other area with additional insulation.     I don't sleep in mine so no bunks and no range hood.   I would go all 12v lighting. Smaller flexible stranded wire, no A/C interference. Lights available equivelent to 75 watt only white, not yellow. You can get remote dimmers for about $12. I made mine 4 years ago putting 50 50 bright white strips in RV lights. Bottom lighting  pic before I put the new Suburban furnace in.  
    • Congrats on your 10 years Steve!! Made me look too, and it says since 8-11-2000..........    Holy carp, thats a long time ago!! Back in the day we used to have some pretty big get togethers on the Duluth forum.  Many B-side Bash's, a few garbage clean-ups, and a couple Lake Superior get togethers. I've met alot of folks from on here up on URL back in those old days of the Crappie Boom.  IBOT's and clamping, oh my😂      
    • I had my old boss once point out the number of posts I've made here.   " But that comes out to be just less than one post a day."   "I guess you are right, carry on."   And of course, I was also a member of Team Timeout a couple times myself.
