once again - you're not in the city any more - there are not any "bass clubs". bass fishing isn't that popular here. pike, walleye and muskies are king here. there is the mudhun lake sportsman's club and the fishbowl sportsman's club. this is small town wisconsin - you don't need a club to go fishing. the only club we have is our friends and family that we fish with.

Thanks Dan but it seems bait shop reports can be suspect, especially for bass fishermen who tend to be tight lipped. Hopefully these forums will bring out more conversation on what seems to work straight from the fishermen's mouths!

another good bass lake in the g'burg area is spirit lake. and while you're there, head east a few miles and have dinner at the skolhaus in west sweden.

Bass fishing on Spirit Lake is not the greatest my parents used to stay at the campground that on the lake I fished it all the time there are better lakes in the area I have one but I wont tell smile.gif There a ALOT of snakes in the lake that about all you will catch.

bigfishhunter,
have to disagree with you. one afternoon of ice fishing, our group of three caught over 20 bass, most of which were over 3 lbs, on spirit. largest was 4 1/8 lb.

I have a better lake for bass but I am not telling smile.gif every bass I have caught out of Spirit has been well under the 14inch limit so i think it isnt even worth fishing anymore the northern in the lake are way to small people are getting desperate on the lake they are keeping EVERYTHING no matter what size it is. Just go into the fish cleaning house in the campground and you will see what I am talking about but thats just my 2 cents about the lake

big fish hunter,
as a local, i can tell you that there's great fishing in spirit lake. just because you couldn't find the big ones on the weekends when the tourists turn this place into disneyland, doesn't mean they're not there. but you wouldn't want to listen to a local's tips. and no, i've got no reason to visit the campground - i live here! the fishing in the city must be a lot better?

yes most of the city lakes that I fish a WAY better than Spirit Lake that lake is over populated with "stunted" bass amd northern they wont get any bigger till people start releaseing the bigger fish its called "Catch and Release" maybe once and a while you will get a big one but thats few and far between. The reason why I said visit the campground one night is because if you look in the fish cleaning house you will see how desperate people are about catching fish in that lake the will keep even the smallest fish its pathetic

its held friday through sunday this weekend, with live bands (free to the public) friday and saturday nights on main street. saturday night is also the excellent fireworks show. its all held at the end of main street, in memory lake. i used to live 2 blocks from the the lake, and have seen (and heard) enough for a lifetime, having been robbed by a tourist while volunteering at the event, i don't go to it anymore. the two bars on main street are hopping all weekend. i've seen guys bring lawn chairs into the bar and sit around the pool table drinking. the weekend wrist band to kind of spendy - probably $20 or so. if you haven't seen the races or the the party, or are interested in either snowmobile racing or antique sleds, its something you've got to see.<BR>dan

    • Thanks Rick. Now, how about you help me get this thing back off the ground by posting one ?   I'm going with some Keb Mo today. Here's 2 for the times off a GREAT live album. I'm feeling both.   "Oh Lord, even the bed bugs have up and run I got a bad, bad feeling ...."   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BvQy_69NSAE   "But I'm gonna make my world a better place and I'm gonna keep that smile on my face ... "   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LNOtAL64tcg  
    • Treadmill and a few dumbells.   I'll be walking outside in decent weather.  Luckily the houses are spread out enough that I can maintain "social distancing".   I never used to see many people while walking in the neighborhood so we'll see if that has changed.      I've also got some deferred yard work to do if things ever dry out.   
    • Oh, one other anecdote.    I have had my phone not talk to the bluetooth in my toyota.    Rebooted the phone and it started working again, for what that is worth.   
    • I have a 2005 Arctic Cat 400 4wd. Mine is sometimes difficult to switch from Forward to Reverse or vise versa. Also when I go out across the yard and shift into 2nd or 3rd gear the shifter sticks. I doesn't release allowing it to shift into a higher gear basically putting it into neutral. Any thoughts on causes?
    • Could really use a good wilderness story right now. Start at the beginning.  "we drove north out of the cities" 😄    I'll hangup and listen. 👍  
    • Great to see you back @Jeremy airjer W
    • You didn't let it run long enough. At some point you should have felt the radiator get warm and the Fan clutch start engaging the fan a lot more. You want it to run with the thermostat open and occasionally raise the RPM to help push out any air in the system. Sounds like you where using a spill free funnel, Perfect! I just replaced mine last spring and I used a little more than 2.5 gallons after it was all burped. If the thermostat was stuck shut the temp would just keep climbing.   If the thermostat was stuck open you would not have had any interior heat.
    • ok after letting everything cool down for a couple hours it has now completely drained from the funnel enough for me to get the radiator cap back on. Going to let it sit over night and see if anything drips or leaks just to make sure I got the hoses and clamps back on good. Once I know I am good there I will take it for a drive tomorrow and get it under load and try to some burp more air out of it if I can. really hoping its just a big air bubble in there and I can get the appropriate amount of coolant added.
    • Amazing timing this one!!! The Timberwolf.....I know it seems off...but not really.   Well done @PartyWhine
    • Rainy day project today, was to replace the radiator in my 2008 Tundra with the 5.7 with 130k miles. Everything went well and didn't take too long. I used the OEM replacement right from the stealership. Got everything back together and started to slowly add coolant. It takes roughly 10-11 liters or just under 3 gallons. I was only able to add about 1.5 gallons before it got full. So I started truck up, squeezed top hose for bubbles and got some out but level never dropped. Let it run for 15 mins with heat on. I saw temp gauge on dash climb up to just below midway. Top hose felt warm to touch as I squeezed it but level never dropped enough to add anymore coolant. So my question is does anyone know if OEM radiators come with an plastic plugs or anything that should be removed prior to install? I didn't even look, I just installed and hooked up each hose. I am wonder if there could me some sort of plastic plugs in the inlet or outlet that I should have removed first prior to install? The lower hose of my radiator that goes from the bottom of the radiator up to the thermostat never got warm after running for that long. Its either plugged radiator or bad thermostat? Would just be really big coincidence to have thermostat go bad when I wasn't having any issues with it prior. And water pump was replaced at the dealer at 85k or so due to a leak so I don't suspect that is an issue either. I have since let motor cool and saw some drop in the funnel but nothing significant. Any ideas what to do next?
