Should I bring my TV?

10 posts in this topic

I have a new 14ft shack with a TV/pop-up antennae and was wondering if I'm going to get any reception on the other side of Pine Island. Thanks for any responses...

Of course I'm going to be staring at my flasher all day, but at night it might be cool to watch a little tube.

This is a no brainer. I look forward to getting up there just so I dont have to see, listen, or even think about that TV set. Its like going 10 miles into the Boundry Waters and packing a CD player with you to listen to. Get my point. You can catch up on all the news and sports scores when you get back. For gods sakes spend all you energy jigging, BS'ing , drinking good whiskey, and taking fish off you hook not channel surfing. Enough said!

Just my thoughts grin.gif Enjoy it up there (LOW) some people may never get there!!!!

That is correct. I got you, the horse was dead after the first swing so I didn't have to keep beating it. Ha Ha Have a good X-mas Bturk and say high to Glen at the Riverbend from the Kuznia boys. Fishing has been great up there my dad just came back with great reports

Good luck and save a few for me!! grin.gif

If you plan on staying out on the lake at night a TV might not be a bad idea as channel surfing might be your only action.Not sure on the reception

Like I said, I'll be watching my flasher all day and probably having a few adult beverages here and there too. But I've been to LOW enough to know once it's dark, it's over (usually) until morning. People will tune in to check the news/weather etc. and that's what I wanted to know about. I don't understand French so maybe I'll just bring a couple DVDs. Thanks guys

If you have a crank up RV antenna you will get great reception. Most of the channels are either out of Duluth or Warroad. I have that style antenna and was just up there from 12/10-12/18 and stayed in my house and after dark it sure was nice to be able to watch the weather. The channels you will get will all be in the 50's, 60's, and higher. Good Luck and enjoy.

Well, it sounds like your going to be by yourself so why not pack the 12 volt VCR and a load of skin-flicks! Great way to pass the time if the fish aint' bitin'! You'll stay warm too!

      that's the spot I would go also. I tried there once this year, not much luck, but I did mark many fish.

      I have a couple of those covers.  Not sure what they are good for.

      For all you pan fish lovers, check out this beautiful pumpkin seed I found guarding the bed while I was out bass fishing. Couldn't help but get some video of this beaut! Enjoy!

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff
