My list is big, but fishing items will have to take a back seat this year \:\(

1) An upcoming wedding

2) A new-to-me truck

3) A dog and all the assorted goodies that go along with that

I could buy a darn nice boat with all that moolah!

We're getting married in July and we have a baby due in November. I can forget about fishing stuff.

P.S. We were planning on getting married before the "Im pregnant" conversation took place!

Might be a new boat for me. I have 2002 Alumacraft Tournament Pro 185 with dual consules. The wife wanted a pontoon boat but I convinced her this would be just as nice. Didn't really work, she still wants the pontoon. Now she has backing from the rest of the family. When either of the son's come up with their wife and the grandkids there isn't enough room for all of us to go out fishing together. No one has said anything about it since last fall so I will just let things ride. I'm sure I will start hearing about it again come summer.

Just make sure and do your gift registry for wedding and baby shower at Cabelas. grin.gif Let everyone else take care of that. Don't worry, babies don't get really expensive till they hit the teenage years...from what I have heard. That is why I am getting all the stuff I need now.

Congrats Wiggum!! I was goin to say you better buy everything before the wedding, but if the family has a place on the lake she'll understand, you gotta "provide food for the family" (thats my excuse anyway) I need a new casting rod I broke in canada last fall, and you always need new lures right?

I believe that a man's shopping list is never complete and if your like me there is always something new that you have to have or would like to have. So my shopping list would be to share my love of fishing with my 4 kids and my wife then maybe the I can get a bigger boat.

You haven't spent it already?? grin.gif

I've got big plans for '08 but it might be more like budgeting for '09.

I just want to have a fun year and keep my head above the water (finance-wise). grin.gif

      Green has some nice gills. Glad to hear they are biting

      I’m wishing you luck my friend. It’s hard to get away and it can be very deflating when the weather doesn’t cooperate. 
    • MinDak Hunter
      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?
    • CigarGuy
      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.
    • CigarGuy
      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
    • Alex wilhelmi
      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 !!
