Happy opener,

Either a 395M or 399M (depending if 12-volt or 24-volt, respectively). Manufactured 1987-1991.

I would venture to guess that he was using a fairly stout flathead rod--probably a Surge.

Darren, I would just sell it to Hanson for a spare. One can always use an extra. I would buy it but I already have three.

Nice hold! Good thing it wasn't a vertical hold or you'd be getting grilled!

Yeah, it's probably just as well you're having it mounted... I wouldn't want to eat one of those, there isn't alot of meat... and especially out of the minnesota, she'll probably have a muddy taste.

But if you insist... I'm sure petrowski can help you filet out the "y" bones

      Wow was it a foggy son of a gun yesterday. In a week or so the hard pack is melted down and there is a lot of slush out there. The roads turned into shallow rivers but there is still a solid block of ice in between the layers of water!  Lots of folks out there yesterday, it was hard to tell until the fog lifted. We fished in 15' of water next to a little bowl of 32' of water and it started out pretty slow. We had three 8 year old girls and they ended up making snowmen for the first hour lol.    About 4 o'clock we caught our first perch, it was a flurry after that until dark. Quite a bit of sorting to do but we kept a dozen and a half in the 9 to 10" range. We caught a few in the 11" range too.

      Lots of water and slush on the ice yesterday. Ice wasn't as thick as I thought it'd be either.  Spot I was on I marked 13".  Ended up not driving all the way to where I was going and glad I did. Walked about 1/3 mile.  Caught some perch, gills, and a 14.5" eye. Saw some larger marks moving through when I caught the 14 but just sniffers. I was in 20' bottom of a break with some deeper water near and weeds not far.
