-34 ouside BRRRRRR

10 posts in this topic

Well it is darn cold outside right now. My thermometer says -34 and my job for the day is to watch the 3 kids and put wood in the stove. I suppose I will do some cleaning also so the better half is happy when she gets home from work! grin.gif

If you are venturing out today, bundle up, fill your gas tank and cover your skin.

Stay warm and be safe today!

Wasn't that cold here this morning. -17 is all it is here in NE montan. suppose to warm a little this week. I'm ready for the soft water to come. Have all my rods cleaned and new line on. I'm pumped for the new season to start. Got to get my passport done so I can go to Canada and wet the line. CAJ

when you're done cleaning I know another place close by that could use a little vacuuming... grin.gif

FYI...Fleet has all their rods & combos 1/3 off right now, didn't have the rods I was looking for. Gander has 40% off the same gear, almost picked up a couple St.Croix's but I can't stand those handles.

        Wow that looks great! What type of wood did you use if you dont mind me asking?

      Was up at Long Point with 5 guys last Thursday PM through Sunday AM. Thursday evening after the wind went down a bit the fishing was great. Ended up getting our limit for the 6 of us that evening. Ate fish that night. Friday and Saturday were slower but still pretty good. A LOT of little ones so we had to sort through them to get some keeper fish. Ended up getting our limits to take home by Saturday afternoon and then the rain started. Very few slot fish, which was a bit of a surprise. Only 4 over 19.5", with 2 at 20, one 22 and the biggest being 25. Jig and a frozen shiner/fathead worked well. No real preference between the two minnows. Jig color didn't seem to matter that much but we had best luck on gold, pink, chartreuse and glow white. Depths we fished were 21-26 feet, pretty much all those depths worked fine. Really fun trip and I look forward to the next one.

      Here's a couple pictures of one of the 14' boats I redid, a 25hp will be plenty of motor for a 12' boat.  The14' bat in the pictures with the additional weight from the wood would go 26mph with just me in the boat.  As you can se  left the compartment open for the gas tank, so I could monitor the level and so I could breathe better. Send me a message if you have questions.  It's really a fun project to work on these old boats.

      Do you have any pics of the process or finished product by any chance?
    • HugeHogChaser
      wow, this is exactly what I was looking for. Unfortunately idk what the hell i'm doing, as I have no carpentry skills LOL, but i have a buddy that builds houses, so I am sure he would have the necessary skills and tools to assist me. It cant be too hard, right!? haha. Anyways, I appreciate the information, this is GREAT. Ill be sure to touch base with you if I have any questions. Thanks again!! I have a 25 hp motor right now...really old, a chrysler 25 HP from like...the 70s or 80s. You thank that'll be enough power with the added weight?

          You can keep one Walleye 13.8- 17.7 a day. With the conservation licence you can take 2 fish out with only one over 27.6. and with a sportsman licences you can take out 4 with only one over 27.6.

      Thanks All.   No big plans this weekend and and the weather has been putting a damper on outdoor projects and chores.    Still I might sneak out for a few hours this weekend.

      In and around narrows is where most people were fishing.  Lots of fish under 14 though.
