Congrats. Getting that first one under your belt is such a rush. When I caught my first on Beers Lake, I remember thnking the thing just had an evil look in it's eyes. Kind of like it knew it was better than me and was ticked that I was holding it.

Its about time you get your first musky. Did you learn this time when handling a musky and you didn't cut your hand up like when you were handeling mine? We still gotta remember when we go fishing to bring a camera. For those who are reading this other then shae we are cousins and last year when we went fishing shae got a nice walleye we wanted to release and no camera so we used his camera phone then acouple weeks later I got a musky on 8 lb test and we had to land it by hand because it wouldn't fit in the net. And after we got it in no one had a camera but a boat close to use did and they sent us pictures after exchanging my address with them and when we were all done we noticed shaes hand was fully covered with blood. FUN Times

      We're making ice now. 0 degrees in Twig   I measured a spot along my shore that had opened during the warm up and found 4" of ice. If I thought about going out to deeper water I for sure would use caution and chisel my way.

      Yes SA fills tanks and should be able to fill a 30 lb tank but they charge a flat rate.  So if your tank is half full or empty you pay the same flat rate.    Uhaul charges by weight and you pay for what they put in.   Both are cheaper then the tank exchange and most tank exchange are 17 lb whereas SA and Uhaul fills to 20 lb.  When you figure that in your paying a lot more for convenience.    One more detail.  If your tank is out of date and needs a new inspection it can't be filled by UHaul or SA BUT the tank exchange will take them.

      I don't know of any product that will keep a pair work gloves dry.  Sure you can spray a water repellent on them that might bead rain water off but go work in them and they'll be saturated.   If your wearing the gloves for protection having them wet isn't the end of the world but if you need protection and warmth I bring a few pairs on the job.  Or you can purchase some hi-tech stuff that claims to be waterproof but a I know of none that will stand up to be a true work glove.    When I think of work boot I'm thinking leather.   I use Sno-Seal.  It stands up to a hard day on the job and Will keep your feet dry.  Being a wax base dirt will stick to it in warmer temps but bring on the cooler temps and it shines.   You could get a boot like Mucks but they will not hold up like a leather work boot.  So it depends on what type of work I guess.

      What about Super America at Pike Lake? I think they do the same, with better hours. they refill out of big tank.
