I'm interested in a repair place as well. I just picked up a decent replacement on eBay for a good price, but I'm planning on getting the dinged up one repaired.

I'm asuming Jay is at Soderholm. Will do, I definitely want to give my business to FM sponser's or member's first. Thanks for the info.

Thanks for the link harvey, the price looks very reasonable for my prop repair. Giving a FM sponser some business is a bonus.

I have used soderbloom's in the past, and let me say, inexpensive, quality work, and fast. Tough to beat. All of my friends and neighbors now send there props up there for repair.

I just has mine done up in Forest Lake. It's a shop off of Hwy 61 and hwy 8. Was only $50 and looks like a brand new prop. Done in like 2 days as well. Might be worth a look if you don't want to ship it around. But I've heard real good things about the guy these folks are talking about as well.

      Finally making it up for our first trip of the year. Strictly walleye fishing in Frazer Bay with slip bobbers around the reefs. Appreciate any fishing reports. Thanks!

      I believe they take vets living in veteran homes around the area like Silver Bay veteran home ect

      tango loves going to Crooked lake!   Sand pines really works with you well for starting off. I don't know just because they were not busy but the kid stayed out with me and planted one by one until I told him to release them all. Golden meadows is nice as well. Do the pre buy program (I think if you buy before mid Aug) and the birds are a good price. They will flag all the birds if you want.   He still only weighs under 60lbs but I like it that way he is deadly fast and never gets tired   Cant wait to see how he does this season want to make a trip to the Dakotas at least once

      Does anybody know of a local Alexandria shop that would install a Humminbird Helix for me?

      Like Mlaker3 said... go as light as you can. The key is to try and stay vertical. It's the nature of the beast when jigging in rocks that your going to get some snags and loose some jigs.

      Thanks for all info. Even if I end up staying at the kawashiwi river campground (which I've done the past 2 years), now I at least know where to drive around and scout out some spots for next trip.

      Good advice! I appreciate it. And good to hear from you. I found fish over the weekend on reef tops with few if any bites. I should've moved on but 11-12" fish made me think better ones might come. The good fish I did find were on the sides of reefs.  I'm off the water for family business, but hoping for a good August!
