Thanks!

I haven't fished much in the past couple of years but have really started to get back into it, and after reading through the forums I decided I would treat myself to an upgrade on my rod. I mostly fish panfish and crappies, but do the occasinal northern and largemouth bass fishing, and I usually only carry one or two rods to keep it simple. I went to Gander Mountain and purchased my first graphite rod, their guide series of course. 6' medium action, and had to try out right after I got home. I can't even begin to describe the difference in feel it has! I also tried some beetle spinners for crappies last night and I have never "felt" so much when I have been fishing before. Thanks for all the great advice! grin.gif

      Fall fishing can be excellent but the weather can be iffy. Fortune bay casino has a nice marina. It has a bait shop, fillet house, freezer for you to keep your fish, beer, and gas. The rooms are nice and a decent price. Plus if you sign up for their card and gamble a little they will sent you coupons which commonly include a couple of free week night room rentals. It's not like the cabin feel on the lake but they have a nice pool, hot tub, sauna, and exercise room. They have a little arcade for the kids too. You can get food 24/7 and the bar is always open and has the sports games on. I know it's not for everyone but we have 2 little ones so the pool and arcade are great when they lose their patience with the boat.

      Was out yesterday 9am till 2pm. Fished by dam, airplane, pontoon, dock. Fish were terribly negative. Three guys, three gills, one rock bass and dink perch. We were able to drive our pickup truck every where.
