    Congrats! Great find! Should work very well for what you want to do.
  • How much of an ice season is left in northern MN?
    I am in the Park Rapids area right now. Fished the last two days on four different lakes. No problems with accesses using an ATV. Most lakes in the area have 20" or more of ice. It is honeycombed. Went to one lake today that had about 12" to 15". I am going to try to get out next Satu [...]

  • House build
    I run a ground wire from each and every light all the way to the front and connected them to a terminal strip in the "V" under the countertop.

  • Anyone familiar with the Crow river around Hutchinson?
    I've only fished the Crow once last spring in Watertown trying to catch carp or suckers- all I could catch were some big, pesky walleyes! So I don't know anything about Hutchinson, but I looked up your dam and downtown, and dam, that's a strange looking setup! I imagine at certain tim [...]

  • Early ice out bluegill search?
    Would also agree with Craigums to focus your efforts on the deep edge of that hole. The temps. at night lately have been much to cold for much activity in that shallow water. It probably has had skim ice over it each morning this past week. Won't be long if we get some average temps. during the [...]
  • Chub Fishing
    yeh, unless you're fishing Pool 2 on the Miss. where there is an open catch and release season on game fish, pike season doesn't start until May 9 (same day as walleye and bass). WI and IA get to fish them earlier IIRC. as for the chub question, yes creek chubs make an excellent bait but b [...]
  • What motor to buy
    [quote=CaptainMusky]I second the Suzuki. Yamaha makes great motors as well so either choice would be a good one, but $1300 is a lot of difference in price so its a no brainer to me. Service locations are harder to come by for Suzuki, but due to the fact they have a timing chain (vs Timing belt on Y
