got the boat out today

4 posts in this topic

Well I could wait enymore so I greased up the boat motor and took the jon boat down the Snake River and but the boat in, in the forest Motor started on the 6th pull and ran like I put it away last year not bad for sitting for over 6 months!! On friday I might go and put it in on the main current and run around, "cant wait for opener" cool.gif

I put about 10 miles on the river yesterday. It was 79 degrees and I couldn't resist getting out there. Had to dodge a bit of floatsam, but it was nice to open her up and cruise in the high water. The trip back downriver took about half the time, due to fast current.

Bought a new fuel line and I was trying to start the motor, wasn't working, so my 7 year old, who was waiting for a boat ride, said "Dad, I don't think the motor's getting any fuel." He was right, I had the fuel line on backwards. After that, it started on the 2nd pull. I swear it runs better now than it did last fall.

SnakeRiverKing, where do you usually put your boat in?

      X2 for the big minnow net.  I got mine at Wally world or FF for $5.  Bend the wire frame to fit.

      You posted this on Friday so I don't know if by "next Saturday" you meant the 14th or this coming Saturday the 21st.    Osakis might be worth a look. Perhaps the Alex chain (Victoria, Geneva, LeHomme Dieu, Carlos, Darling.

      I agree. Completely careless! My uncle could have died...  It broke though he said the ice was to the hood of the truck. He crawled out the window... The window was level to the ice.... He stood up turned around and he said "All I could see was the cab. I watched it for about ten seconds and then it sank." He is extremely lucky to be alive. He still likes ice fishing but he walks on now.

      Fished 2 1/2 weeks solid for NP, and panfish.  Found lots of bites on larger suckers, but almost all were dropped.  Gold and silver shiners were preferred by all sizes.  Usually get the bigger ones on 4-8 suckers.

      I can't tell if it has a second dorsal fin or not based on those pictures, it could be laid down onto the back. But from the looks of it to me, I think its a Brook Silverside. We sample these in central MN streams and the Mississippi River. If you were in Wright County, definitely within its known range. Just a thought based on the picture
