      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.

Anyone heard of "FLITZ"

Question

Wade Joseph

I was wondering if this or any other products out there would polish head light lenses on a 98 F 150. I think they are plastic not glass. They seem kinda "frosted" after all these years and aren't as bright as they used to be even with new halogen bulbs.

Wade, I have a Dodge and had same exact problem. I tried some products but they all revert to the same problem again.

Practically they are a very fine rubbing compound cream, and a silicone/wax cleaner. You rub the plastic with the compound until it gets clear then seal it with wax.

Well after trying 3 times with different products I ended up buying new headlights last month.

If you want I can tell you where to buy a new set for just a little more than what it cost the rubbing compound.

Or you can try Ebay, even the cheapest headlight assembly beats the rubbing compound.

Here is another way to solve cloudy headlights. A guy on one of the jeep forums I visit posted it.

Jeeps way is the way to go. I, being a bodyman have fixed many cloudy plastic lights and glass this way for years and it works the great. You have to get rid of the outer layer of damaged plastic then buff back. That outer layer becomes porous and clouds up so you get rid of it and buff, Walla , clear plastic

Something else you might want to try and being a Ex military you might have some is Brasso. I have used it on watch crystals and my old locator and it will clean them up if it is plastic.

When I was in the Navy we used "Neverdull" it was cotton batting impregnated with some kind of polish. Hard to find these days and very flamable. The Navy quit using it.

Think Im gonna try the wet sanding thing.

After you wet sand try some Novus plastic polish. It comes in a couple different "grits?" I highly recommend it for any plastic scratches.

You mentioned Flitz...it takes HEAVY carbon off stainless steel pistol barrels in a jiffy. It's the only thing my buddy tried that worked out of the big name auto brands.

Good Luck,

Ferny.

      Tried South Lindstrom today. Was able to mark some fish, but they were tight to the bottom, and would not move! Got 1 tiny perch. Was only out for a little bit, then the snow really started coming down. Talked to someone else, and they had the exact same results.

      I have two boss toms at my dads and I think a strutter might be the ticket

      I'm really leaning to buying a mojo scoot and shoot amd trying that this year talk about a adrenaline rush.

      I've used a full body full strut before can be good or bad depending on a birds mood at the time. In certain situations they can be a killer,

      Shiners and suckers not needed for us this weekend.  The better pike were sucking down my wife’s crappie minnows on a demon in 20 feet.

      I have 3 avian x hens two feeders and one head up. I gave semi strut Jake as well.  I want to get a full strut

      Hey relax, I haven't been out since that weekend. With an 11 months old at home, fishing gets put to a halt quickly! I've been following the threads as much as I can. I know guys are catching crappies in the deeper water still, basins with the chance to go up to shallow. French is usually good for that but have heard Roberd's has come in late. Two weeks ago there were ice castle's everywhere and we were drilling to the end of the auger. I like Cedar too near Faribault because it's an easy access and typically holds fish. You'll have to let me know where you go and how you do! Fish on!

      Have to Agree moose the turkeys are becoming a little smarter each year. Better decoys have definitely upped my odds last few years. Seriously considering those Dave smiths or some Avian X.  Moose what are you using for a setup combo with those Avians? My customs look nice but always looking for something better

      Watching fish on the camera is really fun> One day a musky was being a real pia!  But it was fun watching him. Some days it's around some days not. today I saw him only once.  You sure can learn alot on what it looks like on your depth finder and how the fish are reacting to the different techniques a guy uses!  Have fun, good fishing!
