Thanks Rick.   Lots of great folks here I would love to spend time on the water, ice or woods with.   Hopefully we get a chance doing to do so soon.  I really enjoy when we can get together and have fun!

The community here is the draw, not necessarily individuals.  Through the years I have been taught many things by reading posts of all the wise ones.  I really enjoy(ed) reading reports from Eyeguy, RickG, and Icehawk.  Heck I purchased my boat From Cliff, really miss his Vermilion expertise.  Borch, is probably single handedly responsible for me figuring out how to hunt a turkey, he probably doesn't even know it either!

I have personally met/know SmellEsox and Wanderer, they are couple of the finestest gentlemen I know.

This forum is still the best of its kind.

Agree it's hard to pin that.  Besides getting great input when needed, I really enjoy the fishing reports when I am landlocked I can live through them.  Reports that give some idea of the technique, type of fish, and area of the state that is all I need.  I guess for that reason I sort of like JBMaster Angler and Monster Moose threads as examples but I am probably missing others that do the same just off the top of my head here.  I also enjoy equipment reviews great to get first hand interactive conversation but there is not a specific example here.

There are the top posters we’ve come to appreciate and recognize for keeping this forum active, that’s for darn sure!  There are a few others that post a less frequent but have shared great stories and information; all very appreciated too!  I’ve seen some posts lately from members (on HSO too) that I wasn’t sure were still around.  It reminds me how many eyes do looks at these pages. 😎

 

Everyone I’ve met and had an opportunity to fish with or work on a car with have been genuine GOOD PEOPLE.  The only disappointment has been @ANYFISH2 cuz he isn’t available to fish with as much as I’d like too! 😄  But I get it, cuz I don’t get to go as much as I’d like to either...  Checking on posts always helps with that though. 
 

Thanks All, and especially to those that I’ve had the pleasure of connecting with.

Hard to pin it fine to just two.  If I had too it would be Icehawk, who does very detailed reports with great technique info and papadarv, whose post I always look forward to reading.  The guy is a creative genius and I really enjoy the stuff he comes up with.

I can’t pinpoint anyone in particular either. I do appreciate the mention though. 👍 I just like seeing activity here. I miss the good ol’ days when I first joined over 13 years ago, when this place was really booming. I’m a member of a bunch of different Facebook groups, and it’s just not the same as the forum.

I hear that @Kettle guy is pretty cool 🤣 In all honesty as I've mentioned in previous posts, this forum has helped me keep my sanity the last few years in school. After residency and when I finally get that 20' tiller I hope to meet up with a lot of you and take those willing out fishing!

You know where to find the tiller.

I would say Icehawk met him at a catfish get together fun to talk to and my wife really enjoyed chatting as well. Rick G and Eye guy are fun to hear from as well as all the others I guess I can't really nail down. I have learned from many on here.

      The other boats I've owned had the bow roller positioned so the roller hits the keel when the boat is snubbed up, not the bow eye.

      I'm located in the Cities, but if anyone on the Vermilion forum (or around the metro) has one of those swim platforms that isn't being used, I am in the market.

      New 2020 1875 Pro Guide. Helix 12 Mega SI graph. Can't read bottom when up on plane. I was going to adjust the transducer and this is what I found. Isn't the first rule in transducer placement to put it where there is "clean", undisturbed water flow?? It is below the bottom of the boat, maybe too far. It's a side imaging transducer so I feel the riggers wanted it close to the center of the boat. Where have others placed a side imaging transducer and have it read bottom when up on plane? I don't think you can move it closer to the center line. If you move it to the left of it's current position, the is the power strake in the front 1/3 of the boat. Any help is appreciated!!

      New 2020 boat. Livewell is leaking into the boat. Upon further review I found the leak. It's on the white fitting of the recirculation system where the water goes back into the livewell. I'm sure the rigger broke the little nipple on the right side when he installed the fuel/water separating filter as the gray gas line is right there. My question is where does the tubing from the little nipple go? The front livewell?

      Hi all. I am currently at Rush Lake near Perham at Four Seaons Resort. We’ve been here three days and have caught basically nothing. Can anyone give me some advice on walleyes here? Where to go and good baits for this lake? I’ll take any advice on any type of fish you might experience with on this lake. Never been here before.....

      Has anybody used these Felpro washers? My kid's Corollas oem washer is coated aluminum. This Felpro is a synthetic material. I mistakenly ordered it from Rock Auto. Not a big loss if I chuck them and get the oem ones. OEM on the left. Felpro on the right.

      I have TWO new Adirondack Chair and Table sets available for immediate sale. Both sets include two chairs and a ceramic-top table. One set also includes a pair of matching footrests.
      These sets are constructed of weather-resistant Canadian cedar which will last many years. The chair frames and armrests use 2 x 6 and 2 x 8 lumber making them the sturdiest Adirondack chairs available. They are also coated with a minimum of two coats of premium deck/furniture stain and assembled using only rust-proof coated deck screws.

      The chairs are designed to accommodate most individuals from petite to XXXL and have a contoured seat and back so you can comfortably sit in these for hours. All edges and sitting surfaces are rounded and sanded smooth for added comfort.
      These are available for immediate pick-up in the Grand Rapids area ... or I can deliver within a 15 mile radius at no charge. Delivery beyond 15 miles of Grand Rapids is also available for a nominal charge.

      Full Set - $800:
      - 2 Adirondack Chairs
      - 2 Matching Footrests
      - 1 Matching Ceramic-topped Side Table

      Chair/Table Set - $600
      - 2 Adirondack Chairs
      - 1 Matching Ceramic-topped Side Table

      These are available as sets only. However I can build separate pieces to your order.
       
      Please PM me for questions or with orders. First come, first served. New orders typically take 3 or 4 weeks.

      Hey all, I’m new to the state (moved here from Ontario) and am in the Eagan area. I was sad to find that my boat is a little large for most lakes within a short drive (20-30 minutes), so I bought a kayak. The boat will get saved for trips up north. 
       
      Anyways, I was hoping to get some info on lakes/ rivers to try around Eagan. I don’t need specific spots, just lakes that hold fish. Was hoping for walleye/ crappie/ pike. 
       
      Any tips would be appreciated!

      I bought the Phonetone for $180. I am on the north side of Pine.  I barely got 1 bar in the cabin and after I temporarily set it up on the deck I went to a full 4 bars with Verizon. Good so far.

      Hey Charlie I am from the Northen Metro fishing around here for me is about two thing finding spots that your normal weekend warrior would not think to fish at or finding those so called ¨community holes¨ that are very pressured and using diffrent techniques and showing the fish diffrent stuff than they are used to seeing here are some of my favorite spots around here Centerville lake is doing good right now for bass and pike Bald Eagle is my main home lake the docks along the north side are great spots for summer froging flipping or any other technique you want to use a slip boober with a worm will catch plenty to along with some big pumpkinseed that are in there there are 3-4 places you can lanuch a kayak from you will see them if you drive down the road on the west side of the lake the reeds and grass on the north end are great to but a bit tricky to launch a kayak from if you want less pressured fishing try comfort lake by lindstom sqaure lake and big marine are great to finally a great spot for some kayak fishing is the St Croix if you can get someone to drop you off you can float down the river the whole day and get someone to pick you back up I am not a very avid kayak fisherman but you can message pepole like JB Master Angler who fishes the St Croix a good amount I am pretty sure Rick G and Eyeguy 54 are both Avid Kayak fisherman I am sure they would recommed some good spots for you as well  Good Luck -Austin
