Great report.

Leonard I would guess? He can't hear very well anymore, but he is one heck of a good guy and a great fisherman. A person could learn a lot just following him around.

I found out last week I work with Mr. Leonard in Hawley. smile.gif I learned a lot about fishing just talking to him for 15 minutes out in the shop - a great guy! I live a mile from Big C and am trying to figure out the lake. I'm hoping he can help. Winter patterns are a cinch smirk.gif; but summer is confusing the heck out of me confused.gif.

I can go to Mille Lacs and put 50 pounds in the boat in one evening but can't catch 5 pounds on my local lake. That makes me look pretty pathetic. frown.gif

Your correct---Leonard, his dad and I used to fish together years ago, mostly on Big C, and then there were the hay days on Strawberry Lake...he is a Great Stick!

Keep talking to LB -- he has a TON of info in his head. Just talk loudly or just listen.

I have to tell you a funny story about Leonard. I used to work with him too and on Fridays he used to like to make a run to Fargo for parts or whatever and stop at the Northern for lunch (I hear the buffet is great) anyway, this one gal got mad at him because instead of giving her a dollar bill ol Leonard gave her four quarters. I laughed my $&@ off when he told me that, but the kicker was that when she told him that she wouldn't accept the quarters, he said to her "what?? It's a buck isn't it??"

Can't you just see him in there taking four quarters out of that little plastic coin purse that he carries in his pocket. Leonard is quite a guy, they threw away the mold when he was born.

A couple of buddies hit Big C yesterday and they did not land a fish. One buddy said he broke a couple of lines and had some hits, but that was about it.

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.

      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      interesting day fishing on 30 inches and 60 degrees out   no monsters but got a very round hybrid and some rock bass with neat eyes.

      Plastic PC is 3/4 x2 x3.5. Drilled shallow holes on the transom side for the adhesive to cling to. Pretty solid. Time will tell

      No shutoff needed. Take a photo of how you mounted your transducer Alex.

      Actually when I store the boat I take the unit off as well. Is it ok to have the power line just hanging out? Do I need a shut off switch?
