Vikings got the right idea. But can always copy a set. Problem with that is you have to run the to adjust them. Good luck.

The ones I have were made by the charter captain I bought my boat from, they are weighted and ready to troll. I will bring them up this weekend if you want to stop by and pick them up. If you don't want them let me know, I don't want to haul them up, if I am just going to be hauling them back.

I will be at Barkers island slip I6 from Thursday night till Sunday this weekend. hope to get out for the last weekend of laker fishing a couple times, weather permitting.

It seemed like there was a decent bite happening last weekend in 80 FOW.

Not a bad bite from 80 to 105 FOW. 210 to 220 deg from duluth entry 2 to 4 miles out. Fish were spotty but managed a limit between the 5 of us.

Good Luck

Wade, that would be about perfect, I will be there between 5:15 and 5:30 depending on traffic out of the cities. See you then. I have them the boards in the truck already. I will talk to you about few other goodies I am looking to get out of my garage before winter. You have a new boat your rigging, I have some things I am looking to get rid of but don't want to post them. I just want to see them get put to use.

Great to meet you Dave! Thanks for the offer of a reffreshing adult beverage, but I was driving the company vehicle, thats why I had to decline. I also wanted to say THANK YOU again for the boards. They will get me started into the world of planer board fishing as well as provide me a template to build new ones. If there is anything I can do for you.... I owe you one.

      Jayden,   Hey I grew up in Austin! I know of some great places to camp in Ontario if your interested. You would need to bring your own boat 16' would be fine, but it can be done super cheap! I normally camp with a good group of guys and it costs about $250 a week per person. That includes all gas and food for the trip!

           I work during day and live 2 miles from Blue lake ... i get home and hop on the 4 wheeler and have about 1 hour to fish.   The access on the lake is to darn deteriorated ... will see if things firm up next week, 60 and sunny today is the forecast.  Gonna be a close one even if it cools down next week.   We shall see ... Boy does ice fishing help winter pass fast (if that is possible)
