I'm looking to buy a Ski Doo Skandic snowmachine.
Would prefer the 600 e-tec engine, but will consider any.
2010 or newer.
PM with particulars.
If it would help, I have a 2003 Ski Doo Tundra with the single cylinder engine, for trade, excellent condition.
Heading up to V the first weekend in October. Aside from the casino and The Landing, where can you boat to for lunch?
Fishing Ottertail this past weekend we used my sons boat with a Humminbird Helix 9 Si/Di - Follow the Contour GPS. I also put my Vex SonarPhone one side mount which links to the Boating app. I recorded a track on the boating app with the Humminbird following a 16 ft. contour. As you can see on the Boating App track with Sonar video, ls off a fair distance from the Bird depth track. The boating app is a great tool for planning, searching fishing areas and fair on GPS contours. Both Humminbird and Boating use the Glonass GPS system so no differance between long/lat location.
LakeMaster Vs Navionics Boating HB.mp4
I went on an adventure along the Minnesota river south shoreline, picking up trash and encountering some critters. 😄
With illegal taking of ciscoes for bait, including netting them in Quetico nd smuggling them across the border.
Saw it in mpls trib just now.
Nice little unit that I just removed from a used boat recently bought. Everything seems to look and operate perfectly. Includes graph with mounting bracket, battery cable (fused) and transducer with mount. Buy new elsewhere for $169 or here used for $50. Can ship if you cover the cost.
Here is the mfg description:
The Lowrance Elite-4x Fishfinder, which includes an 83/200 broadband transducer, transmits sonar to track the presence and movement of targets beneath your boat. When you use this device, you’ll know when you’re in the right spot. This innovative fishing aid lets you enjoy your sport with a new level of confidence, even when you venture into new and unfamiliar waters. Its advanced electronics perform well in a wide variety of settings, including lakes, rivers, and marine coastlines.The 4.3-inch LED screen offers an impressive clarity in part because of the built-in noise rejection technology. This specially designed, high-resolution LED color display weighs 3.4 pounds and measures 3.8 by 6.6 by 2.2 inches, making it a compact finder that is perfect for those with kayaks or other small vessels.This design includes all of the features of the HDI Series but with the addition of special sonar technology. This model includes GPS and chart plotting capabilities. It also features a detailed U.S. map with high-definition mapping of more than 3,000 lakes, rivers, and coastal areas down to 1,000 feet. The addition of CHIRP sonar allows you to identify underwater targets more quickly. It also allows you to see targets at higher boat speeds, saving you time.This lightweight and compact finder includes advanced electronics commonly found in larger, more expensive models. The one-thumb operation of the page selector menu gives you fast and easy access to all the fish finder’s features. You’ll save time and get excellent results with Advanced Signal Processing, which reduces the need for manual adjustments. You’ll view the bottom detail, lake structures, and fish that you’re looking for more quickly and precisely. You can also avoid obstacles like submerged branches and rocks thanks to this device. TrackBack technology allows you to go back over the sonar history to check lake structure and fish targets for future reference. The TrackBack feature allows you to save a waypoint, eliminating the need to circle back and retrace your path. This model also supports DownScan imaging.The unit runs on 12-volt DC power. The CHIRP technology operates between 83 kHz and 200 kHz. The DownScan imaging system works with a 455/800 kHz transducer. The Lowrance Elite-4x Fishfinder can be set to a useful range of fishing modes. The Conventional sonar can be kept in General Use Mode or set to modes for fishing in shallow water, deep water, brackish water, fresh water, or clear water. There is also an ice fishing mode. These settings can help you see in water depths ranging from 60 feet to 1,000 feet.

anyone else have this??????? also not sure where to post this so here it goes. when i log in to the fishing minnesota side it says there are no topics posted?????? scroll down some of the recent posts show but not in the threads like what used to be normal??????
i dont have this problem on the puters or on the HSO side???????
Dr. gave the OK for a weekend fishing next Friday, heading to Ottertail. Using Sons Tracker with Helix 9 SlDl + follow the Lakemaster map contour. Will not only improve ability to find fish along with tracking a specific contour automatically. I’ve always wanted to do a detailed contour compare between Navionics and Lakemaster. I use the Navionics Boating app linked to the Vex SonarPhone on one of two tablets. I can record tracking, depth, speed and how well the track follows the Lakemaster contour. My second tablet I’ll record FishSmart Lakemaster tracking contour which is the exact same Lakermaster map as on my son’s 9 SiDi. This past week I built a ¾” PC pipe side mount height adjustable transducer holder as we didn’t want to drill more holes in Sons boat. I put the Vex SonarPhone in a ammo box with battery or external power. Looking forward to some Fall Fishing.
By the stick
Need a reliable electrician on the East end.
Been a long time since I spent on a couple years on Big Fork River and then with kayaks.
Can someone give me advice on what stretches if any I can use my V14 Tracker
with 20 horse, though I can go with my trolling motor. Back injury prevents kayaking.
Looks like above Big Fork and a couple areas below Big Falls might work if there is
Thanks for any help. This is back up to 3 Canada trips that got cancelled.

By gimruis · PostedThe problem with new people in the outdoors is that they abuse it and don't all treat it with respect. Like the duck hunters Moose encountered. Or the campers up north leaving trash behind and chopping down big pine trees. Or the ice anglers leaving junk all over the ice after they've been out there drinking all weekend. Or the guy that can't tell the difference between a hereford heiffer and a deer. A large percentage of these new people just don't care. And even if they know the rules, they don't abide by them which is ruining it for the rest of us that actually spend a large portion of our lives out there.
By Rick · PostedThat same influx of outdoor users is what keeps your sport safe at the ballot box as well as in acquiring more public land.
By Wanderer · PostedI have to keep in mind the influx could be youths who don’t have high school sports or activities keeping them busy these days. That’s exactly one of the reasons cited for a drop in participation and the trend of hunters being older. Mixed emotions on that topic for me but we’ve all said it’s better than all the kids being shut ins and playing video games instead of learning the natural world. Even though they can play vids while hinting now, it IS what we’ve asked for. Be good to one another out there even if it’s frustrating at times.
By jim curlee · PostedHeadin over fishin around Tower again last night. Turkeys in the same area tonight as in August. By the by brought home 4 nice 15"-17" walleyes, slip bobbers and minnows, 6' of water. Who say's the fish abandon the weeds in the fall. LOL Nice healthy fish, should make a great lunch. Nobody else on the lake, I guess the lightning scared-em off. Jim
By gimruis · PostedNo doubt about it. I went during turkey spring season A too and there was noticeably more hunters out, especially on Sat/Sun. I think the combination of no lottery and the pandmeic had people cooped up. Plus it was relatively decent weather for season A, and it has not been the last couple years with April snow. I exclusively hunt private land for turkeys but when I was leaving and driving down the county roads, I spotted 3 blinds on field edges on neighboring properties. While I don't have to worry about people setting up 10 yards from me, the added pressure in an area certainly makes it harder. Sometimes having multiple groups of duck hunters on a big marsh can be beneficial. They'll send ducks your way and vice versa. But setting up that close is ridiculous. I can see more problems like this occurring the rest of this hunting season, especially for deer and especially on public land. It could potentially be a recipe for disaster too if you have a couple of hot heads that lose their cool. Adding firearms into the equation only magnifies the problem. I hope a lot of these "newbies" and infrequent outdoors people that are only out there fishing, camping, and hunting this year because of the pandemic go back to their old lives when this is over. The less people I encounter on the lakes, rivers, and in the fields and woods, the better.
By billrider80 · PostedI recommend Eskimo Evo2. Eskimo Evo2 Crossover Ice shelter is the trusted shelter brand for millions of outdoor explorers and its original concept and design stemmed from the notion ‘two heads are better than one’, over sixty years ago, more here https://bootsgeek.com/eskimo-evo2-review/
By Barbelboy · PostedI purposely avoided duck opener because of possible crowds. The number of hunters in the field for Turkey A season was ridiculous. Literally 2,3, or 4 cars in WMA parking lots where i've rarely seen 1. So that was my indicator that some big change has occurred and to start planning accordingly. If I were a public land deer hunting i'd brace myself for a different experience than usual this year, especially if the weather is nice. I guess while aggravating to me in a selfish sort of way it is getting people outdoors. I just hope people like the ones Monstermoose encountered are few and far between. .
By Chill62 · PostedNot to change point of this topic but if you do not have a drill and are looking for that light weight set up take a look at the Strikemaster V24 New this year. It comes with a Lite Flite auger and is coming in at 350 for 6 inch and 399 for 8 inch augers. The weight savings compared to the V40 is amazing and if you look at holes/battery and the cost of the battery it's cheaper and more productive than the Milwaukee/DeWalt batteries. I have a few friends that when they started looking at the cost of a good drill and a lite flite this option is same to cheaper option for them. I've seen way too many drills fail in thick ice for trusting one 100% of my season. Its not for everyone but for those that are looking it is a very nice option that is new this year for people.
