      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.

HD Projector TV ??s

Question

prov1900

I have a front projection tv, if I am saying that right...it has the movie screen on the wall and the projector behind the viewer. Anyway, it is HD, but I have Dish Network. What I want to know, is there a way to get the local stations, say Fox during the BCS game, in HD? On my LCD tv, the high def local stations can be obtained by switching off the Dish Net, and going through the television to get the HD. With the projector, I don't have the same capability, or do I? I hope this isn't confusing and hope some of you tv techs can steer me in the right direction.

Local stations really stink for clarity on the big screen when they aren't in HD. They are not that great on the LCD tv's either.

I'm not clear on how you are receiving the HD channels on the LCD TV and what you mean by "switching off the Dish Net". I can only assume you are using an antenna for the HD locals and you switch inputs on the TV to go back and forth between Dish Net and the locals on the LCD?

I'm using an antenna to receive the HD locals. On my Dish Net receiver there is a coax input for the roof antenna so it blends right in with the rest of the programming. I have the DVR-622 receiver.

On my Samsung LCD, I am changing to source, to antenna, to get the local stations in HD. On my projection TV, I don't have that option, although I never really looked at it. We just moved to a new house and the projection tv came with it. I don't have an external antenna on the house, just using the (I assume) built in antenna for HD on the LCD.

There must be an antenna in the attic then?

Not knowing what Dish Net receiver you have, I'd look on the back of it to see if it has an antenna input and move the antenna wire from the LCD to the Dish Net receiver if it has such an input. I'm assuming that you feed the Dish Net signal to the projector as well, and if so, then you can use the Dish Net receiver to view the locals via the antenna input as I have mine set up. This makes it seamless and there is no source-switching required as the Dish Net receiver merges the antenna input with the satellite programming. The only thing lacking is the program guide information for the locals since I'm using an antenna rather than paying the extra fee to Dish Net for the locals.

If there is an antenna input on the dish box as LMITOUT suggests, and if it has an ATSC tuner in it, you should be good.

If not, you will need a separate device that includes an ATSC tuner to get OTA HD signals.

Cool, I am going to check on that today. Now, if all channels were in HD, life would be really good. Thanks all for the help!!! Thank God for this website.

      I found a great bait selection at the Baxter Fleet Farm today.  3 sizes of suckers, multiple sizes of golden shiners, and of course fat heads and crappies. The first bait shop I tried only had fat heads and crappies.

      There was a couple mixed in the bucket. They were big shiners 5 to 6 inch range. The shiners would be down for 6 hours or so each time and we never waited that long for a sucker to be taken. Just our experience. If a guy could have both I say try and see.
    • Wanderer
      Call ahead for shiners.  I’ve heard there aren’t any left in the state.  At Mille Lacs 2 weeks ago I asked for some and the guy looked at me like I was stupid. Of course I blame that on the question...

      Fowldreams, did you have shiners? Just curious if preferred them over shiners, or thats just what you had.
    • fowldreams
      suckers, suckers, suckers. This was the only bait that worked for us last weekend and when the fish hit the rattle reels line spooled fast.

      What surprised me about the fishery in SE Florida is that it is mostly live bait (Shiners). There are so many fish in those channels that the Peacock's won't chase a bait for long. I guess they can be caught on the fly but your casts needs to be very accurate and your hookset quick because they spit the flies fast. Our guide said artificials could be done but you're going to spend all day to maybe catch a few fish. Watching the videos of those Amazon Peacock's destroying topwater plugs and jerkbaits looks like a riot!!!
