Well since Steve is always too busy to take chunky fishing grin.gif, I had to pick up another boat. Hopefully I'll have her on Bside by next weekend. 1959 Alumacraft Queen Mary 19 footer. Yamaha 115 on her tail. Believe me, you'll know it's me when you see it. See ya on the water. Hope all is well with all you guys!

Chunky I thought maybe you took up Scuba Diving or something. wink.gif

Glad to hear from ya man. Maybe Ill drive up for a day and we can break that puppy in. Burntside is a beautiful lake and just trolling around for a day would be fun.

Take care man and good luck with the new rig.

No more "The Cisco Kid" confused.gif ?

We will be on Little Long for a couple weeks starting the 21st of the month. Hope to visit with some FMers while in the area.

Cisco Kid II ! I already ordered the graphics grin.gif . The original Cisco Kid is sitting in a haybarn in Embarass. The guys going to gut her and make her a center console. That is after he removes the 1000 lbs of wet floatation foam tongue.gif . I'll post some pictures of her when she's ship shape and ready to troll.

Just spent a week on Burntside, first time ever on the lake. You guys are lucky to have that in your back yard. Hard lake to fish for first timer, seems like the wind had to be blowing pretty hard to get any bites. Didn't get many fish, but all were nice size.

I was out of town all of July 4th week and somehow this post slipped by me. Chunkster, no time to take you fishing also means no time to take MYSELF fishing. mad.gif

Guess I've gotta give chunky his downriggers back now and get a set of my own. Darn.

Not only is it alive, but it's got a REALLY big inland laker boat. And one unique enough so he can't fade into the background. grin.gif

Congrats on the boat Mike!

Is it the big platform boat sitting at Trader Jacks?

You mean Trader Craig's, Frank? On the east edge of town in the same building as Spirit of the Wilderness Outfitters?

If I recall, the boat you're talking about is fiberglass, which wouldn't be Chunkster's aluminum one. Or maybe I'm just assuming that Alumacraft didn't make fiberglass boats, because of the Alumacraft name. But I haven't actually SEEN it yet, because the hermit hasn't come over to SHOW it to me.

I'm not even sure if it's real. I mean, what does a 1959 Alumacraft Dairy Queen 19 footer look like? grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

Trader something in Ely. I reread Chunky's post and it isn't the same boat. I know a guy in Ely that knows where Chunky lives and he even has a camera, maybe he'll go take a picture.

Sheesh BooBoo, who's the guy in the trenchcoat in front my house with the camera? The Queen is up at the studio getting some cosmetic work done. You'll see her soon enough.

Not really believing the masses about said boat, I snuck over to chunkytown without my camera to sniff around. So, no camera means no pics. Sorry. Not being a journalist anymore, I felt freed up from the ball and chain of providing visuals to go with the news. grin.gif

There is in fact a boat there. It's pretty big, and pretty wide, and pretty silver, and pretty near done being turned into a most waterworthy Cisco Kid II. She'll even do justice to the Big Lake when her time is right.

Man, that thick aluminum sure wears a long time.

      Good evening,   i recently inherited a 12 foot aluminum boat, and I would like to re-do the interior. (Add carpet to the benches, possibly add marine grade plywood to the floor and carpet the floor as well.)   does anybody have any experience doing this, or recommend anybody that is good with this type of thing?    Trying to figure out if it's worth it to pay someone to do it, or try and figure out how to do it myself with no experience.    Anyways, thanks in advance!

      Nice bass Eyeguy. I can imagine that Northern was fun peeling out line and all on the yak lol.   Hit the miss on my way home.Was curious what was hanging out by a drain I often fished in the past.Found a few typical average sized bass and a sucker.Way to kill 15 minutes on my way home from work lmao.I love it

      Nice Fish ST! Loadmaster, I hope it was nothing major or serious that had you in the hospital.  I was just informed by the Chief of Staff that I get to do house projects this weekend..sigh..maybe Monday I'll get to go out.

      I went yesterday.  Bite was good.  Saw lots of people catching fish.

      Sorry...been posting a few pics in the Panfish section...I've been out a lot chasing crappies, started 10 days after ice out. I did the eye opener and we did good real shallow 4-6ft with jig and shiner but that one eye outing is it for me unless I go out late fall for them again.  Crappies bite has been real good...just not in normal spots...not many spawned in the shallow reeds but beds we deeper 5-7 ft in many lakes. I've been as far North as Little Bemidji to as far South as S. Lida and many lakes in between. Went out Saturday morning early and found them in 12.5ft suspended real high; used the smallest rap they make and just fan casted all around the boat and they were aggressive.  Cabbage is coming up and healthy in most lakes and they will be moving into the cabbage when it warms up. Water clarity has been unbelievable in every lake I've been on so far. Another yo-yo weather pattern makes it more challenging for sure....but search and you will find.

      WINDY today but got out for a couple hours.   30 inch northern looked all spawned out.  got a few dandy bass. The last smally looks like it ate a duck! LOL

      Just curious if anyone else was out on the chain braving the rain sat and sunday?

      Contact the DNR if there are serious concerns.  Tournaments have to be permitted through them.  If they're not handling the fish correctly, they might lose their permit.
