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!

    • I can see that, there some interesting water here!!!
    • Lol.... Smart one-just-like-silly-me     Anyways, it turned out my hunch was correct and it is a machine for doing back rows. I guess this is a $1500 device. Does anybody use this pretty regularly as part of their back routine?    
    • rumor has it he got it around little osakis lake!!!!!!!!!🤣
    • It will actually take longer with greater distraction looking for the lift remote and holding the lift button in for the 7 seconds to get the ducer out of the hole than pulling by hand. Good way to loose that trophy fish
    • nice jack-a-lope!!!!
    • IMO, the roof is the most important component. It has been said that there are only 2 types of camper roofs, those that leak and those that are going to leak.   Inspect any used camper roof diligently and make sure there are no soft spots and that yearly maintenance has been performed.     As far as slides go, yes they can sometimes be problematic but I would guess that there are very few new models produced today without one. Kind of like electric windows on cars. I used to avoid them because it was one more thing to go wrong but now you would have a hard time finding one without them.    Also, the RV refrigerator can be a problem in older campers. Make sure  it works before purchasing a used camper. If it doesn't,  that severely depreciates the value of an older unit in my mind.   I would just recommend walking through as many floor plans as possible and try to envision your family in there. One of the biggest mistakes people make is buying the wrong layout and having to trade much sooner than expected.     
    • nice!!!!!!! but i forgot the most important part............i didnt get me no bear!!!!!!!! friggin weather!!!!!!!!😡
    • What papadarv made for a cam makes more sense since you can pan with it and pull up the cam from 30-40 feet.  Lifting a ducer a foot and a half for $200 bucks makes no sense!  🤪
    • Looking at getting a camper and never had one before, but have questions. I have a half ton PU and looking at around a 24' bunkhouse style pull behind. It's just me, my wife and daughter and her bringing a friend once in while (why the bunks be nice). Probably use it 4-5 times a year and deer hunting for a week. Not sure if going new or used up to 10 years old at most.  Generally do the slide outs have issues leaking, breaking down not retracting? Brands good or bad?  Any recommendations to avoid or must get in getting a camper?  Thanks!
