      Fishing Report Clubs - LIMITED MEMBERSHIP - Join Today - FREE   01/24/2018

      Fishing Minnesota had added a new menu item (see above) called Fishing Report Clubs. It's a way to keep the really good fishing reports coming and being shared only with those who also provide detailed fishing reports. We will only approve new members who request to join if they have already posted a recent fishing report in the area forum, associated with the Fishing Report Club area  you want to join. We are going to limit the number of regular memberships, in the Fishing Report Clubs, to the top 20  members in each Club, to those with the best frequency and quality fishing reports provided in the club and less so in the regular fishing report forum open to all members. The higher quality fishing report reserved for the club of course. If  you want fishing reports  around your area, I would Join Now, some of the clubs are starting to fill fast. Use the Fishing Reports Club link in the Menu above (after you've posted a fishing report in the regular area forum) and request to Join.

Just be sure to get a full copy of the coverage BEFORE you buy it. It's the law that you are entitled to that document before the purchase.

Read it thoroughly be sure you understand what is and what is not covered, deductibles, customer's responsibilities, where/how repairs are handled and how claims are handled, etc.

They all sound really good until you start reading the fine print, so to speak.

Yes, read very well ALL the contact and have explained what it doesn't cover, you will be amazed of what will be excluded.

Example: LLYs were famous for overheating, will warranty cover it or will it be owners responsibility ? Transmission snaps shafts while towing a trailer even within max towing capacity, will it cover it ?

I am not a fan of extended warranties, not to bash but if it was a Cummins I would say don't do it, since I owned 4 of them with over 200,000 miles, I know how they can alst

Duramax are excellent motors, I just don't know many with high mileage yet, but usually a diesel engine will outlast a gasoline by a long shot.

Again be sure somebody explains VERY WELL any question you have with it.

If you would have bought it before your factory expired it would have saved you a ton of money. To get one now will cost alot. What I would do is talk to a gm diesel tech and ask him comon failures at your milage and above, then when you go into buy the ext war. you can compare what is covered. Some ext war companies get a list like this and not cover them items. Another thing is make sure you have all records of maint. if you havent done your scheduled maint. the ext war company may not cover the items they say they will. Ask about that ahead of time. Also some companies if you never use them, they will refund a portion of your money. Good luck!

I believe you will find, as has been discussed on this Forum in the past, that consumer protection advocates generally regard these "contract"s as being little short of a con game. Do not waste your money. If we had effective regulatory action going on from Washington a great many things like this would simply go away. Like the headache cure that you rub on your forehead......gimme a break. It has been PROVEN that this product simply does not work....but has it been banned? nope, not in todays world.

Stay away from X warranties....very very few people ever gain any satisfaction from them and even then it usually takes them a long, wearing battle of letters, emais and telephone calls to extract a dime or two. mad.gif

Don't waste the money. I have a 2002 D Max they are a LB7 Durmax and that is what you have in your 2001. The week point of this motor has been the injectors. GM has a special buelltin that covers the injectors to 200K. You will probably need this. I bought mine at 75K and the injectors had been replaced at 70K. Then at 155K 3 injectors went out again. Well my dealer had to take it to the regional service manager to get it approved to fix again since it had already been done once on my truck. Well thankfully GM covered all eight again so I have new injectors once again. I did tear a transfer case out but other than that I have had pretty good luck. But those were two pretty big things.

      Slobslayer99 , Echo can be a fun lake to fish for Walleye and Crappie. As for being there on the opener , like most lakes , it's all going to come down to when the ice goes out , and the type of springtime weather that prevails up there this year as to how the opener bite might be . The lake is shallow and has quite stained water . Early ice out , and a warmer spring can have the lake good to go on the opener for you  for both species. As for where to fish , that also depends on the spring also , as the water starts to warm there , very shallow muck with deadheads around the lake , or the shallow rock pile with reeds on the far eastern  end are usually safe bets for Crappie . As for the walleye , they can be caught on the rocky shorelines throughout the lake . Early fishing there is best with minnows...  ahhh the opener , you gotta love it .

      Tried South Lindstrom today. Was able to mark some fish, but they were tight to the bottom, and would not move! Got 1 tiny perch. Was only out for a little bit, then the snow really started coming down. Talked to someone else, and they had the exact same results.

      I have two boss toms at my dads and I think a strutter might be the ticket

      I've used a full body full strut before can be good or bad depending on a birds mood at the time. In certain situations they can be a killer,

      Shiners and suckers not needed for us this weekend.  The better pike were sucking down my wife’s crappie minnows on a demon in 20 feet.
