I know Bob Walker of Pro Dog trainers is having a booth - he was setting up while I was talking to him on the phone about our plans for opener. Does a great job if your looking for a trainer.

I'm planning to be there on Thursday early afternoon. I need to stop in Blaine around 1-1:30 before I head to the show. Bringing my 5 year old up, so hopefully he'll like looking around. For his patience I'm gonna bribe him with a stop at Chuck E. Cheese on the way home back to Rochester.

Was at the show last night looking for a new trollling setup. stopped by Thorne bro's and was very well takin care of (great advice, great deal) I was VERY impressed! Even set me up to get power pro put on each new reel at there store at no cost. Stoped by on the way home, two reels spooled with power pro and home by 9:00 pm. I think I may have found my new tackle store.

Capmaorgan; if your serious tghat you are going to buy, it's worth going there to spend some money. All dealersw are there competeing for your business. shop around for the best price; and then go to your closest vendor to your home and get them to match. Pretty sure you will be happy w/ the results at the show.

I am waiting for Sunday. In past I have got a better deal on last day. This seems to go with Game Fair as well. I bought a dog collar at Game Fair two years ago, that had the becon sounder to locate dog and hawk cry to tell when she is on point. When I went on Thurs. the tent I bought it from would not budge off of $450.00. When I was there on Sunday, I bought it for $350.00. I am looking to deal on a Triton boat on Sunday and hoping for a good deal. Will stop by F.M. booth.

Youngie22 -

I see both of our posts from 3/29/07 have been changed. They are not what we originally posted. Any reason why? Did we do something wrong? I just answered your questions about hand held GPS's at the show.

      Much different lake from a week ago. Snow on shores and ice in reeds. Water temps were down quite a bit. 42 in main lake 45 in shallow bays. Had a few followers on spinner baits but no hits.

      looking like there could be some very interesting weather there tonight into tomorrow!!!!!!!!!

      Went fishing for a couple hours yesterday. Water temp was 48-50. It was a nice day to be out on the water. My arms and neck are a lovely shade of red to prove it. Make sure you're smarter than me and toss a tube of sunscreen in the tackle box before you head out.

      Smoked up 4 for a test and really good!  Quite different than the crappies. Nice and oily and the skin peels right off. Scales are pretty big so a bit of a mess but easy peasy.

      I attended an event Saturday out of Everts. Eye bite was really slow for the 20 boats but a few nice fish were caught. Got into a buncha white bass at the end of the day and it was game on.   Brined some overnight and smoked em up to try them. We thru cranks and swim baits all day.
