If your yard guard keeps out the black flies....bring LOTS. They are worse then the mosquitos are. And they follow you in the boat!!!

If you dont shower or go swiming they leave you alone after 3 days but soon as you clean up its like raw meat to them. your freinds might leave you alone to.

I was told that Vicks Vapor Rub cream, comes in a tube, will keep them from biting you.

I've never tried it but this guy swears by it, I'll be giving it a shot next month.

I've always felt that the mosquitos, flys, and everything else that bites are just a part of the experience...kind of like dealing with traffic jams is a part of living in the cities.

I've found that a few beers is a great cure all for ignoring bugs. grin.gif

      I found fish on Friday like the old days it was a lot of fun but I decided not to deal with the slush and the sled on Sat.  I heard that may of been a good decision because I heard people burning out their sleds in the slush, running them wide open just to barely move.     Nothing like sledding in a rain storm, I guess to find them it has to be painful.

      HI ... I was out on a Lake Saturday Morning and two guys I noticed were catching nice Crappies hole hopping with electronics of coarse.  Finally after a bit from a semi far distance (far enough to not be able to see color but know it was the vertical spoon ones) I asked what they were using as they were packing up.  "Forage minnows no bait" one said.   So my question/s is?   Has any one fished Crappies with these?  I am a pug bug plastics guy here for Pan fish.  What particular colors has anyone had success with?   I am assuming the smaller spoon but I see they come with treble hook and or single hook?   Bob

      Thank you for the zip code, for the last 3 years I lose the tailgator reception at night around 8 I never know what zip code to try I sure hope it works.  All day everything is fine, evening comes I lose signal.

      I used the thumbnail method with all but the heavier split rigs.  If you're doing a bunch it gets sore.  I then use a small eye glass screw driver.  Once I get it started to remove the old one I slip the new one in behind it.  One falls off and the other on.   Careful, those small trebles are hard to hang onto and sticky sharp.

      really neat to see the lake from the aerial view!  Cool to see all the roads and the paths out there.  Kinda fun to look at the road systems and name what resort they are from...
