barter fishing trips for computer help?


meatfish

Recommended Posts

From this point on I will fish nearly every day(weather permitting) till it is time to ice fish again.I usually manage to catch fish but have learned to never promise fish.If you are a computer geek and would like to show up at a landing and catch some fish and show me how to use my lap top,we can barter.I just can not afford to pay the geek squad $50 to $150 every time I bring it in any more and would rather fish than take a class.Soon I will need a web page which I know costs some $ and am willing to show you some of my spots and let you use my gps and one of my boats.You can fish and program at the same time.Thanks

In addition I think a forum for computer help and discussion is needed here.There is one for almost every thing else here.

While not a self entitled "computer geek", I do know my way around a computer pretty good. Send me a email over to aol. My email is duckhuntinggod at aol dot com.

I am not smarter than a fifth grader when it comes to this topic.I mostly need basic help when it comes to using options on my computer,mostly stuff that most people take for granted.When I try to do certain things,errors pop up,usually if I do figure it out on my own it was as easy as finding the right spot on the control panel and turning some thing on or off.But when I do ask for help, I am lost with in seconds with the terms used.Example: When I try to post pics here from my photo hosting site javescript void; comes up,huh?? As stated I will be doing a web site and at this rate if I try to do it myself that will take me a year full time to get it done.Thanks for your response

Meatfish, what's your email addy. I have been in computers for 11 years and over the last year have designed a couple of websites. How far is Spicer from the twin cities, I'd be happy to help you out to learn some new water.

meatfish - If you're still looking for some help I'm sure I could be of assistance. I'm certified in A+ - hardware, Network+ - networking, and MCP - Microsoft Windows XP and Server, currently working on my Linux+ cert.

If anyone else is in need of computer work I'd be interested. Ideal trade for me would be some cat or muskie fishing but I'll fish for anything.

Meat, do you know a tall, rapping basketball player from Spicer named Jeff? He knows stuff.

      Heard that too. Also heard 38 was closed for a but north of rapids due to flooding.    I know the water really came up when I was up last week compared to when I was there in April.

      Someone said 4 inches in the past week, more expected this weekend. A few roads, including county roads that are asphalt ended up with sink holes. Lakes are the highest I've ever seen in the 30+ years coming to the area and now living here. Several people lost trees Tues night

      Dang Kettle  that bites. Great to hear fishing was good though.   How much rain you get up that way?

      50 in 6 hours is great. Boat issues really put a damper on a great day though. Hope you get it fixed quickly.

      Well boat finally got "fixed" and I picked it up Saturday. Last week worked 96 hrs so Sunday wanted the day to fish alone. Boat ran great out to the spot, 4 miles or so. Fishing was great boated over 50 walleye in about 6 hrs. Caught them lindy rigging, jigging and bobber fishing watching them on the live scope. Kept 6 between 18-20 inches. After using the trolling motor for the entire time fishing, go to fire up the tiller and it bogs down and dies. Another 4 hours running the trolling motor back to the launch. Fortunate it's under warranty. Bummer of a day but fishing was great landed one about 7 lbs too

      Terrible news for that area especially this being such a prime time for tourism. We can only hope for dryer days ahead so they can get back to normal.

      For those not in the area, the Lake Vermilion area got anywhere from 5-10" of rain the other day (depending on your source). The lake is rising rapidly affecting docks, shorelines, and cabins. The Littlefork River that runs through Cook overran its banks and flooded the town. It's not expected to crest until at least Saturday, which means things will get worse. Places such as the Comet, the Muni, the library, and many other businesses are flooded. Many roads in the area have been destroyed by flooding as well. There's lots of damage. Below are two quick links.   https://www.northernnewsnow.com/2024/06/20/floodwaters-inundate-city-cook-evacuation-location-open/   https://www.mprnews.org/story/2024/06/20/cleanup-continues-flooding-in-northeast-minnesota-southern-minnesota-rivers-rising

      Apparently just the motorized portage.   If you paddle you are good to go.

      The only way I could do it is running parallel to the shoreline on the "L", but with the wake from the boats and my rocky shoreline, the waves just bounce it around too much, even with bumpers tied off. My neighbors dock is recessed off the main channel, I'm going to sweet talk him into letting me dock it there.

      They closed the Trout Lake Portage down washed out.
