Griggs, I fished 2 tournaments this weekend.. Saturday on Big Marine, did well. Fished pretty deep with drop shots, probably caught 30-40 fish, weighed 12.77lbs if I remember.. Fun day.. Yesterday I fished Rush lake, prefished friday and kicked the snot out of em.. Sunday was a different story, couldn't buy a bite. Managed my limit, but werent big, 8.35 lbs..I think that pressure system shut them down.. and dang was it HOT. Thats my weekend report.

I went out and tried some bass fishing in the dark both mornings this weekend. Was fishing at 4am and did very well. used topewater for the most part but also used a black spinnerbait and caught a few. Bigger fish bit best before there was light in the sky then the smaller fish mixed in. Great time though.

I went out on Millacs and got to witness the may fly hatch first hand. bugs 1" thick around the Nav lights and troubles getting back in to the marina because it looked like we were in a blizzard. mad

Muskys were a no show for us though.

Hellabass, Nice fish!! I've got a club tourney on Tonka in a couple of weeks, are the fish in the milfoil or what was working for you?

Hit Chisago on Saturday to show my dad a good time and the bite was nearly non-existent. We managed a few, but the algae bloom and weather seemed to shut them down. It was a beautiful day and the boat ran good. That is all I can ask for I guess.

Went out saturday and the darndest thing happened. I caught 3 fish but lost 8! I seen all the fish that I lost. the only thing I could make off it was that they were biting light and not getting the hook in there mouths. most of the bigger fish came throwing a senko right up against midlake reeds, smallest fish came throwing senkos and jigs under and around docks.

Fished Friday afternoon 1:30 to 3:30. No little guys, no big gals; 7 fish between 16"-18". The historic fish spots all held fish, went 4 out of 5 casts with a fish (giggled like a schoolgirl). Tried out a new worm hook with lead on the shank, me likey. A crack of thunder chased me off the lake, could have hung around longer, but I had my best day so far this summer.

Went out saturday and sunday and did decent both days. I managed 11 Bass saturday, all of which went 17-18". I picked up 13 Bass sunday with most of the fish measuring 17-18" with a couple 19"ers. The biggest fish of the day was a 20.5" piggie.

I had a club tournament at Coon Lake on Saturday. I prefished for the tournament one week prior (the 20th) and had around 18-19lbs. On Saturday I found the fish had stayed in the same areas and caught 18lbs 6oz for the day. My personal best 5 fish tournament limit yet! All Terrain Jigs, Gander Mountain Brand Beavers, and Spro frogs were the ticket all in less than 4ft of water.

On Sunday I got out to Carls (McMahon?) lake in the south metro and caught some fish up shallow around milfoil and wood. Greenest, most pea soup looking water I've ever fished!

Nice bag on Coon. I fished Carls about ten days ago, what an algae bloomed slimehole. Plus, I was getting a surface water temp of 86 degrees! Note to self: Only fish this lake in the fall.

Deitz: yup, I got first

Duffman: I'd agree. Its been good to me in the spring and through June, but just caught a bunch of smaller 13-15inch fish yesterday.

Nice fish Medman, you getting them on cranks?

I've been getting a few on cranks. Most of my fish have been on Storm 5" Rattle Tubes and various Berkely PowerBaits.

    • Next up was installing the floor. We went with 3/4” marine grade plywood. I also coated both sides and all edges with a water sealer just to be sure.    After installing the plywood floor we put the furring strips in and ran the wiring.    Each wire goes back the front wall where I made a little panel. The front wall has an opening for a 55” TV that sits flush in the wall. The little squares above and below the tv opening are for in wall speakers.  This is half of the wires the other side of the panel has the other half.  This is all the positive wires coming through the front wall and behind the panel. I forgot to take a picture of the back of the panel after I cleaned it up and put the negative wires through.  Here is a picture of the front of the panel while I was booking everything up. All the positive wires on the left and negative on the right. My wiring is a lot different than most shacks. I’ve never made a panel like this before so I didn’t really know what to order. The terminals that the wires go into are called din rail terminal blocks the snap onto a little piece of aluminum called a din rail.  Later I found stackable ones that would have saved space but I like how it turned out. Each terminal block has a slot in it where you can put a jumper. So everything that was going to be on one switch would be jumpered together. Things on a different switch would be jumpered and so on. The terminal blocks have a hole on the top where one wire comes in and gets screwed down to hold it and there is the same on the bottom. So once the terminal blocks are jumpered to things you want on the same switch you only need one wire out the bottom. Things that were ran off of the switch went out the bottom and over to the relay board. You do the same for each thing you want to run off a different switch just run a wire to a different relay. The long green rectangle thing on the right is a relay board. Our house has 12 light switches not all of them are used yet but they can be so I bought a relay board with 12 spdt relays. The green square on the left is an arduino which is basically like a mini computer chip that you can program. I’ll explain more once I get to what our switches look like. The bottom right of the panel is for the trailer lights and brakes and all the stuff that hooks up to the truck.  I eventually replaced these normal terminal blocks with the din rail style.  Here is the wiring panel all finished up.  The reason for using all the relays and arduino was so I could use this light switch and eventually be able to control everything from a smart phone. In the fish house we have 2 of these switches which each have 6 buttons on them. Each switch has a set of cat 5 cable running to it. One set is connected to the atduino board and sends a signal saying the button was pressed.  The other cat 5 wire is to send a signal to turn on and off a little light next to the button when it is pressed   Here is the back of the switch. So basically how it works is the arduino has pins on it that can send or receive signals it also has pins that can send 5 vdc or 3vdc. So one wire from the arduinos 5 v pin hooks up to the back of the switch where it says sc (switch common 5v coming in). A different wire connects a different arduino 5 v pin to the terminal that says pc (pilot common which is just the little lights next to the buttons). So when a button is pressed a brief 5 v signal is sent from the arduino to the switch which goes through board on the switch and to the wire terminal that is for that button the signal is then sent back to a digital pin (receiving pin) of the arduino on a digital pin. The arduino has to be programmed to receive different signals on the pins you want. Once the arduino sees that a button was pressed it sends a signal over to the relay board saying a button was pressed close the relay that corresponds to that button. When the relay closes it allows the 12v to go to whatever you want to turn on. The nice thing about how this system works is everything can be changed in a matter of minutes. Say I wanted to have the ceiling lights be on button 4 instead of 1 you just have to change a couple of numbers in the code and plug the arduino into your computer and upload the updated code. I’m sure I lost most people right away and I’m not sure if anyone else would even want to do something similar but If so you can message me and I can try and explain it better. Before this I’ve never done anything like this so I had to learn all of this online and how to write little bits of code and do all that which was fun but also frustrating at times since I didn’t have anyone to go to with my questions.  Not sure If this video will work or not.  4B8EE058-806B-4BF6-8DD8-8FC76BE46BD0.MOV  
    • What is this?
    • Everything is going strong now. Been making salsa for the last week or so, have been doing abt's with the jalapenos,  thinking on letting them go red to spread it out a bit. The early girls are kicking em out but the big boys have a bit. Canned two jars of pickles with more coming down the pipe, but I'm gonna hafta start grilling some zucchini,  can only make so much bread.    Bell peppers seem to be running a little on the small side, starting to change colors but was hoping for some better sized ones for stuffing. Snap peas did good out of the gate but are trailing off already,  ya gotta love this time of year!!
    • juicy or freeze dried?
    • Most of the state has been experiencing sunny, warm, and beautiful summer days. The forecast predicts some rain over the next day or two, but otherwise it looks like warm temperatures and clear days and nights. Canoers at Mays Ledges at the Brule River State Forest.These mild and sunny days have been great for canoeing and kayaking and many river water levels are moderate and perfect for paddling. The lower Wisconsin Rivers is running just about normal for this time of year, with many sandbars popping up.Much of the state has been hovering at moderate fire danger this week, which means, in the right place, wildfires can happen. Nearly 60 wildfires have occurred across the state in July, mostly caused by fireworks or sparks from equipment. .
    • Looks to me like a great fishing cart...mount some pole holders on the sides and a cup holder for your beverage and life is good!!🎣
    • i still have some from 2016, most from last year yet but i like to stay ahead. how do they say it........i like to let them MELD!!!!!!!!!😁 that was a 1/2 bushel, smaller batches makes it not so over whelming. especially on a work nite. 
    • Nothing better then homemade pickles. We did 84 quarts last year but the kids didn't eat all of them so we are going to skip a year.
