A huge thank you!!!!

16 posts in this topic

smile.gifJust wanted to say thanks to all who contribute knowledge - not just complaining - to this website. Last friday morning my wife caught and released a 46X26 muskie. Because of the thread regarding water temps, we netted the fish quickly, kept the fish in the water, and took only 1 picture out of the water. The fish was out of the water maybe 10 sec. When the fish was put back into the water it immediately swam away hard. Without reading the earlier post we may have taken more time. THANK YOU! Hopefully a kid or someone's wife can now catch a 47" next year.

Awesome job! Education is a great thing. Too bad more people aren't willing to be educated. Like yourself, I've learned a lot from this website and other sources due to people willing to share their knowledge.

Thanks. She has big time bragging rights - and don't think I don't here about it crazy.gif This is the second year in a row I have been the brides maid. I was with a friend last year and he caught a 46. Good thing the year is not over!!! The hard part of all this is she wants to go fishing with me all the time - sometimes it's nice just to go with the guys. Could be worse.....She could put the kabash on all hunting and fishing.....but that would just lead to divorce!! I must admit that it was probably as fun watching her catch that fish as it would be catching it myself. She was just shaking when she took the photo (she didn't want to hold the fish because she wanted it back in the water ASAP) it was nice to see her get so excited. If I can figure out how, I will post a photo.

      Cannons a go good 3 inches where I check and two guys out 100 yards

      We're making ice now. 0 degrees in Twig   I measured a spot along my shore that had opened during the warm up and found 4" of ice. If I thought about going out to deeper water I for sure would use caution and chisel my way.

      Yes SA fills tanks and should be able to fill a 30 lb tank but they charge a flat rate.  So if your tank is half full or empty you pay the same flat rate.    Uhaul charges by weight and you pay for what they put in.   Both are cheaper then the tank exchange and most tank exchange are 17 lb whereas SA and Uhaul fills to 20 lb.  When you figure that in your paying a lot more for convenience.    One more detail.  If your tank is out of date and needs a new inspection it can't be filled by UHaul or SA BUT the tank exchange will take them.

      I don't know of any product that will keep a pair work gloves dry.  Sure you can spray a water repellent on them that might bead rain water off but go work in them and they'll be saturated.   If your wearing the gloves for protection having them wet isn't the end of the world but if you need protection and warmth I bring a few pairs on the job.  Or you can purchase some hi-tech stuff that claims to be waterproof but a I know of none that will stand up to be a true work glove.    When I think of work boot I'm thinking leather.   I use Sno-Seal.  It stands up to a hard day on the job and Will keep your feet dry.  Being a wax base dirt will stick to it in warmer temps but bring on the cooler temps and it shines.   You could get a boot like Mucks but they will not hold up like a leather work boot.  So it depends on what type of work I guess.

      What about Super America at Pike Lake? I think they do the same, with better hours. they refill out of big tank.
