Steve, just wondering if you got your woodstove hooked up and running. Our furnace has only kicked on a few times this fall due to running wood most of the time grin.gif BC

Hey Mark:

Yep, got 'er hooked up and ducted into the furnace ductwork. Propane tank was on 24 percent in mid Sept. and is all the way down to 23 percent now. grin.gifgrin.gif

October's been cold, but the only time the furnace has kicked in is when we went out of town last weekend. I'm about 2/3 of the way through cutting and splitting six cords of maple, oak and a little birch.

Definitely looking forward to saving at least $1,000 in fuel this winter. The thing is a monster, weighing about 400 lbs, but we got it down the basement with just me and one other guy. GRUNT! grin.gif

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.

      Vexilar makes many "fish finders" what model do you have. Is it a flasher, a graph, WiFi type. Will help in knowing what your looking at when running your finder.

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff

      Ice forming in the dogs water dish right now! Forcast still looks good starting Tuesday. I predict the first truck thru the ice on Buffalo will be Dec 23!
