I grudginly put the boat away on Sunday as well. Luckily a few of my buds still have thier boats out so I will hop in with them. I needed the garage space as I was getting tired of scraping the truck's windows every morning.

I'm not ready and the boat and gear are still ready. I usually take it down to the "cold bitte end" which is about two weeks from now.

I'm not ready for the ice either. Fishing has been great this fall so far and I'm not about to give up that space in the garage just yet. wink It sure is nice hitting all the lakes that get hammered during the summer months by rec. traffic with ease. I'm giving myself 2 more weeks as well. Good luck out there!

I won't put it away until the bitter end. There has to be ice on the lake I can walk on, then the boat will go to storage so I'm thinkin' December. Too many good days left on the Croix and I have some guide trips booked already so the boat has to stay out.

I have at least 2 weeks before I put her to bed for the winter. Still some walleyes to be caught on Vermilion and I have some of the best fishing early in Nov.

Just like most guys about 2 weeks, I usually put her away just before shotgun deer season. By the time deer hunting is over and hockey started last week(I coach)not much time left to fish. At least my usual fishing partner keeps his boat out until the bitter end.

I put it way today. I went to take it out today and had a flat tire then I got on the water and my finder battery went dead. Then I realized that I didn't have my wallet with me so I went home and started getting it ready for winter. I figured it was an omen

My boat is still water ready and will stay that way for a while. The weather looks fairly decent for the next couple of weeks and besides, the ice shack isn't ready yet. I still need to run a gas line to the heater and wire up some lights.

    • I've never bought a car/truck over $15K, so yeah.  It would take a powerball jackpot before I was in the market for a dealer showroom boat.
    • Dry brine with Mortons Tenderquick, amount directions per pound are on the package in a ziplock in the fridge. Add seasonings like onion, garlic, black pepper, maple sugar or brown, allspice, cinnamon, nutmeg. What ever you prefer. Take meat out of brine and let sit in Fridge overnight. Smoke around the 130 degree mark for 12 hours (for my liking) or as smokey as you like. Cut into 1/8" slices and cook in the oven 425 degrees for 20 to 30 min to your desired crispness. 
    • I just bought two panels that I am going to trim slightly to replace one of the 3 grates on my Big Horn grill... I actually have a buddy that received them this weekend for fathers day and say they work just as advertised on his pellet grill.... I will give an update next week when they arrive.
    • never heard of it....  
    • Since we are talking about searing stations, etc....   Has anyone ever used the Grill Grate product on their pellet grills?   https://www.grillgrate.com/shop-grillgrates/standard-grillgrates/pellet-grills/
    • You've got the right idea. There are a ton of bacon recipes here on HSO if you search for bacon - I've pasted one here to what seemed like one of the more popular brines. I made bacon once, and it turned out OK, but it's a long process.  Good luck and let us know how it turn out.  
    • Reverse seared a big thick 3lb cowboy ribeye for Father’s Day over charcoal. The novelty of the idea was fun. Then after cooking you realize you pay a lot of money for bone and fat and not a lot of meat.   Lesson learned to just go with a nice thick regular ribeye steak instead next time.  
    • Well this weekend certainly wasn't ideal for fishing weather. Between strong winds and storms every day Friday-Sunday it made it hard to get some good quality fishing time in. Just kept getting chased off the water with thunder and lightning in the area every day and night. Never saw a lot rain but plenty of storms in the area to keep us off the water.   Did manage to catch some fish regardless just nothing big enough or worth keeping. Not a keeper walleye caught and lots of skinny 8-9" perch which were all released.
    • Hey everyone my wife bought me a pork belly to try to smoke and make bacon out of it. Does anyone have any advice i have never done one before. Sounds like your brine it for a while then smoke then let cool and slice. But it would be nice to hear from people that have done it.
