      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.

98 Grand Prix trans rebuild

Question

Dozer

Ive fot a 98 Gtp that first gear slips on. Its been sliping for about a year but if you take it easy in first it is fine. Also when you pull out to pass someone it kinda acts wierd too. It feels like it unlocks the torque converter then relockes it a couple times, seems like it cant decide if it wants to be locked or unlocked. If you give it a little bit more gas so it shifts down to third it is fine. This is the third trans Ive had in this car, first one lost all gears second one lost third. I replaced both of them with used ones from junkyard. Im getting tired of putting in trannys! Is it possible for a person to rebuild this trans at home? Is it really that complicated or can a pretty mechanicly inclined person do it with a good manual? Am I just asking for trouble?

You are asking for a world of trouble. I have done dozens of th350 and 400 in the garage, but wouldn't even attempt to crack open these computerized trannies. Before you condenm it have it scanned. Maybe you could get lucky and it is a solinoid sticking or something.

Are there any good shops in the Cambrige area? I took it in when the last one went I took it in and I really dont think they did anything. Just drove it and said "yep its slipping, a new one is $XXXX". Is there anyone in the area that actually works on them rather than just replacing them? I think it is abolutly rediculas that people dont service transmissions, and just replace them at the drop of a hat. Like anyfishwilldo said its probly a solinoid or bad cluthes but most places dont fix them they just replace them.

A GM dealer can give a good computer diagnosis of the problem but as far as a good shop I'm at a loss.

I too recommend a dealer. They will be the best for diagnosing the problem, and know of comon concerns.

      Fowldreams, did you have shiners? Just curious if preferred them over shiners, or thats just what you had.

      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!!!

      Thanks again guys! Much appreciated!

      Smaller suckers and shiners.  One hint is that you may want to get your bait prior to getting close to the lake.  A lot of the area bait shops having a hard time getting the suckers and shiners in the past weeks.

      Has your tip up been in deeper water, shallower or the same? I’m hoping to get some iced this last weekend of the season. Devils Lake in ND is a good bet.

      Back on the Horseshoe chain I put in another 7 hours seeing zero pike yesterday.  I must be using the wrong decoys since I can draw in sunfish, crappies, bass, and catfish all day.  Finally caught a pike on a tip-up outside the house so at least I didn't get skunked again.  Looks like that will do it for spearing season unless I can figure out a North Dakota lake to try...

      Quick report from last weekend: Fished a couple midlake reefs in big bay and the walleye seemed to be non existent aside from a few dinks, although, the action was pretty decent. Jumbo perch, tullibee, and a few crappie kept me busy. From hearing other people’s late season reports along with my experience last weekend it seems like a lot of the walleye have moved to different types of structure, perhaps shallower?? I’m not sure, but had very few marks that appeared to be walleye.
