I thought about babying her through the brush, but it is an 870, she needs to beat the brush to feel normal. Probably the last time it will look this good too. I have thought about a scope, but with the rollover on the stock, my head feels a little better lined up for the open sights, than before. scope might come next year, we'll see how the winter goes with MN new night time coyote hunting with lights law. Might have to go with a red dot by then

30 bucks for the forend, 80 for the stock. That was from cabelas, a finished product. you can buy the same set from the company that makes them for less, it is called a "virtual inlet part" which means you might need to do a little sanding and carving to get it fit flush. the company that makes the set is boyds gun stocks. do search for them.....I thought I might as well go with the finished set, I had the gift cards burning a hole in my pocket. It adds a little bit more weight, but it is so much easier to hold onto with the thumbhole stock....I am not sure yet if I will but the sling back or not

      Buddy and I went out yesterday around noon. Fished for a few hours was a little windy but not to bad. Only got a small largemouth and one decent gill. Only fished for 2-3 hours tried all over the small lake we were on. Ooh well still nice to finnaly get out. Planning on taking the yak out on opener do a bass/pike/ walleye trip so exited for that. Few nice gills you got there rick!

      Any reports? I know there was a lot of people out there. The boomsite access was already 3/4 full when I drove by at 5 AM. I'm thinking about going out of blufflands park on Friday.

      Kinda cold and windy yesterday. Fish really didn't seem to mind though. Finding ggod sized fish was the goal for the afternoon. Started off in a feeding bay that has a section of deeper water in it. This deeper water is where I found all my fish. Crappies were holding tight to the weed cover around the hole, while gills were closer to the surface. It wasn't fast fishing by any means, still I managed to find some real quality pannies

      I have two Vexilar transducers.    1) Thru hull/trolling motor- used.  From FL8 2) New never used, high speed.       I looked on Vexilar's site, The one's they sell say FL8 or FL18.  Checked FAQ and they look like they are interchangeable with other models???  Can text pictures-what do you have?
