Tom's Harbor?

Recommended Posts

Commanche Jim

I've read and heard some things about Tom's Harbor that aren't very good. What is going on with that place? I saw they were holding a auction for some of the places...........is that true?

Hey Jim,

I honestly don't know what the deal is with Tom's. I think the auction was back in early September, and you had to have a $1,000 money order or something like that just to get in. I also heard something to the effect of $160,000 for a lot that's 100 feet by 40 feet. Everytime I went by there on the lake, it seemed like there was some sort of work being done on the cabins there. I'm sure soon enough all the rich playboys from the cities will show up with their jet-skis, "runabouts", and "pleasure boats"......yuck. We have enough of that already.

Yep. Us "city folks" are wrecking your lakes.

When will this stereotype end. frown.gif

Hanson,

#1. Please point out in my post where I said that Cass was "my lake".

#2. Where in my post did I group togather the recreationalists and fishermen?

I'm not trying to be a jerk. Just please answer those questions. The "rich playboys" I am talking about are the people who come up every weekend and have absolutely no respect whatsoever for the lake or other users of the lake, no matter what region they are from. These are the people who will spend all afternoon out at Star Island getting completely drunk and tearing around the lake mindlessly. And that whole bit about the "stereotype", well, sadly it is true. A vast majority of the people who vacation here during the summer are from the cities. Some of them are very decent people, others not so much. It's the "other" group that annoys me. But this is just coming from a stereotyping, stuck-up local.......

MuskyTail,

I agree with you to a point o the city folk, BUT I also see a lot of people on the water that have boat licenses from out of state. These people rent, time share, or buy for what ever reason these places that are WAY to highly priced... But, we need these people here to help our communities survive. I know you never mentioned anything about that, but I'm just adding my two cents worth... I'm originally from Apple Valley and have been up in god's country for 14 years now... Yes I also agree with Hanson-- This is a major stereotype and I don't know when it will end... North Dakotan, Minnesotan, Cheesehead, and Farmers or Wine Makers from Iowa we all use these waters and we all have a different theory to what we call rest and relaxation... Hopefully people use common sense and enjoy the resource we have here...

On a side note:

The only accident or situation that I heard/saw this year on Cass was when one boat at half throttle took out another boat.. Everyone survived and one lady had a messed up shoulder/arm... Point is not bad compared to all the boats that were out there this year crazy.gifcrazy.gif

Close Beef, but I am a Fighting IllinoisState Backer.

I am not a very big college football fan, but I was surprised that Ill knocked OSU off.

I am, however, a bigger Green Bay fan so take that..you Vike fans you.

To elaborate a little bit more on what beef touched on, (the boat collision) ironically enough, I took the son-in-law of the guy who got hit out fishing that morning. We saw the guy drive past us about half an hour before the accident. And just when you thought there couldn't be any more irony, the topic we were talking about when he drove by was boating traffic/accidents. Twilight zone stuff, huh?

Oh and LABS....before you go on and on and on and on about the wonderful, blessed, all dominating Packers.....the deer hunting is depressing. I do, however, have 3 pounds of 50/50 beef-venison if we could make something outta that...

There are Bluebills showing up but I think this year we will see most of them head to the west a little.. The report coming from the NW angle on LOW is there is between 20 thousand to 40 thousand and that they are or will be heading towards Warrod instead of Baudette... I will be back out again this week looking but I know one lake last weekend had a bunch of Bills(500-2,000) on it... With this warm weather, I'm guessing we will be duck hunting up here until the last day(I think the 27th).....

      Hit Green for a couple hours this afternoon, almost zero traffic and the sunnies were active. It’s nice to see this lake is back!
    • jigginjim
      still frozen in?

      Was out for a while on the Partridge River this afternoon, didn't have any minnows, managed one 13" crappie on Gulp waxes.  But, the old Strikemaster almost bottomed out-close to 30" of ice.

      I don't know what your Helix 7 requires in the manual, but a quick look would figure out if that 3amp is too small. Definitely wire your sonar to the motor battery using the correct gauge wire and fuse. If you connect it to another battery, it should be a stand-alone. Connecting to the trolling motor battery will generate interference.

      I've done cheeks quite a few times and they are always good. They take only a few seconds to carve out. I like to get the most out of the things I kill to eat, so I'm not afraid to pull them out of smaller ones. I'm glad to see that so many people picked up a new tip. That's the point of congregating on these forums. I wonder how many non-registered folks will read this and learn something new.

      I've been doing them for many years.  Like Cliff, a friend who was a guide on LOW brought some out prior to the main course-been doing it since.

      With the snow cover completely gone and lots of standing water, 60s in the forecast, with plenty of sunny days next week, and a good chance of rain mid-week; this may be my last weekend on the ice, South of Hwy 210 anyway . Fish have really been on the chew

      hey guys..i installed the helix 7. took it out the other day. it keeps  randomly shutting down, with the motor off it will stay on no problem. Heres where i think i f'd up. i used the same 3 amp fuse harness from the old sonar that came with the boat, the old hb depth only kind. its wired right to the ignition wire. i used the correct gauge wire where i needed it. im guessing its not getting enough juice? also if i wired it direct to a separate battery, how do i go about hooking up and on board charger? or would i be ok just wiring direct to the battery that runs the motor? thanks for any advice. those musky lures look so bad ass! nice work !!

      I think it is a matter of the material involved.   Ethanol can corrode some metal and dissolve some organic stuff like rubber or plastic that gasoline doesn't affect.   Or so some sources say.
