I think too many people are downloading it. I have a T1 connection here at work and will not stand for 3.87 K/sec dl speeds. I think where ever this video file is hosted from is getting hit hard right now. I'll try again later.
GET OFF THE INTERNET PEOPLE!!!! YOU ARE SLOWING IT DOWN FOR ME!!! smile.gif

Yeah it was pretty slow for me also and we have shotgun T1's here at work. I figued they probably have the HSOforum's bandwidth throttled so the downloads aren't slowing down the rest of the site.

Man that video rocked, talk about weak knees... VERY COOL!!!!

Nice ski, glad to see CPR done to it. What bait were you using? I was thinking about doing some ski fishing. The excitement would be unforgetable.

Hi Rick,
WOW what a fish! Could you please coach me a little on muskie through the ice. I am going to Crow on an anual trip next week, have always chased the lakers but not muskie. Can you give me a basic pattern and presentation you start with up there? Tackle?

I just showed that to my kids for a bedtime story...they thought it was about the coolest thing ever. They both thought it was going to be an eel pout though (the burbout has mysterious and legendary status in my house for some reason). Thanks guys!

WOW!!! I don't know if I would be brave or experienced enough to put my hand down that hole to grab it. I suppose they didn't want to gaf it if they were C&Ring.

Thanks for the great video. My boys were not into going fishing until they saw that. We are out the door in a few minutes.

What an amazing video, and fish! Really nice job landing that beauty.. I'm curious to know what it was caught on, and what sort of structure you were fishing. I've been trying to pull a muskie through the ice for some time now with no luck. Those videos are really fun to watch. Keep em' comin'!

Remember the videos you see shot are when we're targeting lakers. Muskie season up there closes in December. Even in season, this lake has a 54 inch minimum. It's a rare occurance to see a ski but you can see it's an unforgettable one. Use the utmost care wheen landing these beasts by slowly sliding your hand inside the gill cover and firmly grab the gill plate. Let the guy with the most experience land 'em. Don't use a gaff!

Ditto the bronzeback. Thanks for the feedback guys I'll never forget watching Patrick grab that fish and pull her out. The fish was returned in excellent shape about 30 seconds after the landing. That's the thing about skis they are a memory every time you see one caught!

    • My thinking is the grease would make up for the gap, but wasn't sure if it'll still have too much play. Yet, don't want it too tight where it gets stuck.
    • I think the tube is DOM 1/2" thick. Was afraid 1/4" too thin and cannot find any other tube that would fit another solid rod inside. Don't want to get something I have to get machined $$$... At least with arm I can pull out and have another made if not good. Not sure how to make the grooves with hand tools?
    • I live in the burbs  on a cul-de-sac and the plow always leaves a huge pile at the end of my driveway. I bought a single stage Toro, and while I don't have a 2-stage to compare it against, I would definitely buy a single stage again. It's plenty powerful enough to handle the deepest, heaviest snow that accumulates on the driveway. When it comes to the pile at the end of the driveway, you just have to work your way though it by backing out and pushing into it again. Of course, if you're out of town or something and the pile at the end of the driveway freezes you might need to get out a shovel. But for most snowfalls I can clean the driveway in a matter of minutes - you almost have to run behind the thing to keep up with it.
    • Not a fan of leaders, far fewer bites with them on.   I typically run 4 or 6 lb test.  I do run 8 lb in water less than 8-10 ft.  I do this because thr fight is usually off to the sides of the hole, and the line contacts the ice edge at sharper angles.    
    • Just ordered the 16 piece jig kit yesterday. I am excited to get them and get out on the ice as soon as it is safe!
    • Hey,   What lb test line should I be using for Walleyes?  I've been using 4 lb but that seems a little light and I don't want to lose the big one, but don't want to get too heavy either.  Also, what's your input on using a leader?  I haven't but just wondering if I am missing something.
    • In my experience the best solution is to have both a single stage and a 2 stage.  The better 2 stage blowers out there will probably be fine for 90% of our snowfalls and in most cases they do a better job on the smaller snowfalls because they scrape the driveway cleaner.  The 2 stages are nice for the really big snowfalls, windblown drifts, and the snowplow drifts.  You can always deal with the lager snow falls by getting out once during the storm to clear the driveway so you don't have so much to do once its all done.    I've had ok luck with a Snapper single stage handling snow plow drifts and smaller wind blown drifts.  You have to go slow and maybe chop up the drift with a shovel if its too big but its doable.  Even if you have to break up the drift a little with a shovel that can be easier than maneuvering a large 2 stage at times.    If I could only have one blower I'd probably opt for one of the larger single stage blowers.  My wife has a hard time handling my large Toro 2 stage and most of the time its just over kill for smaller snowfalls and ends up taking more time than a good single stage would. My mother in law has the Snapper single stage and she can run that just fine on her own so I think almost anyone could. 
    • I would go with DOM (Drawn Over Mandrel). You can find it on-line just a bit pricey unless ypu have a steel supplier nearby that can order it. http://www.aladdinsteel.com/products/dom_seamless_tubing/?gclid=CjwKCAjwwdTbBRAIEiwAYQf_E0tV3qM59rsqxJ1i9ao2mL2_KQ8HhbIdOj_i1FHOUOd9ycq8L9tY0BoCQbIQAvD_BwE#top 1/16, .062 could produce a lot of shift depending on the lenght of your pivot arm. I like .020 max and grove the solid in a level wind criscross pattern for grease distribution. Being steel on steel grease often. During summer also and drop/raise house several times.
    • I think you are good , you need to have room for a ton of grease.
    • I have an 8-10 year old 2 stage toro snow thrower that I have had no issues with, however looking to purchase a single stage Honda (HS720ASA).  At home I have a relatively flat concrete driveway 40 feet long by 33 feet wide.  I also have a paved walkway and patio leading to the front door.  The toro works great, but it is so bulky to maneuver and seems like overkill for what I am clearing.  Also, when I am out of town and it snow, the wife is not able to use the two stage.  The single stage might be easier for both of us, but I don't want to buy something that will be insufficient.  I live in the cities, in a culdesac, and get large piles of snow at the end of my driveway.  My question is if others who have purchased a single stage under similar conditions have been happy with their purchase?   I can use the Toro at our cabin around the garage, house and parking areas.  I have been digging up my lawn with the ATV plow and am tired of reseeding every spring.  Hopefully this will give me the best of both worlds.  Appreciate the insight.
