Looks like my Canada trip in August may not be able to happen due to uncertainty that boarder will open in time. Our group is tossing around the idea of going up
to lake vermilion instead. I am wondering if anyone has advise on where to stay. I have done some looking around and most resorts rent by the week. Any info would be greatly appreciated
There is an article in the Timberjay asking people to complete a survey that would help bring broadband to the area. I don't know much about this so I'm not promoting anything except for awareness.
The link to the survey is below. Click on the red link that says "Iron Range Broadband Survey":
I’m not even sure if I’m in the right page I just signed up but my question is I just purchased a boat from a private seller went to his home the boat fired up I purchased the boat, the day before I brought it out which was about a week and a half later it fired up brought it to the lake the next day it fired up boated around for about 25 minutes found a spot to fish It was off for about an hour or so went to start it back up and it would not fire back up had to be towed off the lake so the moral of the story is there anyway I can go back and get my money legally without no trouble or what is my next step if the seller does not want to give the money back?
Greetings....I'm searching for an original TUFFY (molded metal, left side or set of 2) TRANSOM CORNER for a rebuild on a 1985 Tuffy Muskie. Several TUFFY boats had these so being specifically from a Marauder may not be necessary. Wondering if anyone can help in locating one from a dealer or private party who may have upgraded to more modern transom corners/caps....maybe a boat that's been abandoned or scraped.
Photo attached of the right-rear that I am trying to set-match to. The right side I have. Need to get a left side cap.
Thanks for any assistance.

"What up with that?"
i remember icehawk mentioning he had a few. anyone else.?????
how are they to deal with , i somehow broke my little sweetpea rod up north this past weekend!!!!!!!!😡😤🤧 i dont see my wife ever hitting the ice again so i may jest steal hers, but am thinking of replacing it. i'm not looking to have them replace it free, but a good deal on a new one would make me happy. the rods a bought from them where made by the dude in the wheelchair at the time!!!!!!!!
Do any of you guys know if Surface Tension still swims around these parts? I think I need my Nils sharpened. I had sent him a message through the HSO forum a while ago and didn't hear back. I'm not sure if HSO and Fishing MN share the same messaging platform, or if I need to try him here instead. Did a quick search and it doesn't look like he's posted in a while, so I'm hoping someone knows his whereabouts.

Nice work gents! Looks like the back-end of summer bite is heating up. Love this time of year as we head into Sept. How is the water level with all the storms passing through? Has looked rainy lately. Last I was up was early July after that 8" rain storm and the levels were back up to normal after being low in June.
Seven specie day today. Live bait not required! Couple of things of note... I caught eight nice crappies this morning on a deep rock reef, along with a bunch of plump gills. Seems odd, but I’ll take it. This afternoon, I targeted ciscos and whitefish out over the basin. Success! Was happy since I now know whitefish can be targeted year round, not just thru the ice. I also enjoyed the challenge of a different species that not many folks know about. Was a unique and fun experience. By the way, everything I caught was immediately released.
Our week (7/25-8/1) wasn't greatly productive fish wise but I could never really get a pattern to work. I usually use a lindy rig with a half crawler. When we did try jig/minnow not much either. The start of the week the wind was tough to hold on a spot. Later we had no wind and high temps. I marked some surface temps that were like 78 deg, that's pretty warm.
I went down to Brule narrows one day, never been before. Picked a reef and caught a 19" eye pretty quick and then boat control got to be an issue.
Might try a week in Sept once I am retired (Friday is my last day) but I sure miss the ability to fish north of the border.
What is the best time of year for brookies. I've tried spring but waters too cold, summer, bugs bad but fishing good. Never tried fall but I am think that might be the ticket. Usually use worms but sometimes spinner. Is there a special trick to keep the chubs away? Lots of them in my creek.
Good luck with your toilet. LOL
Let me know how it works after a weekend when the kids and grandkids are there using it?
Not sure how the Biolet works, we had a top of the line Sun Mar.
There is a tray in the bottom of the unit that is supposed to hold the extra urine that goes through the compost material.
After a weekend with 5 females, and 3 males using it that tray would be full to overflowing.
Wouldn't have been a problem if the girls would have cleaned it out.
They didn't, I had to.
The whole bottom of that unit would have an inch of urine in there, that is GROSS!
Oh yea, there's an overflow tube on the Sun Mar.
This would fill up with the fine compost material, and plug up, now where do you think the overflow goes?
And yes, I had 2 fans in my exhaust pipe, no it didn't help it dry out any faster, but they did help keep the smell down.
The only thing I can say about ours is that there are plenty of people out there that wanted to buy it when we were done using it.
They do keep a good value, especially up here.
If I was you I'd check out more than one brand, and one user.
I'm guessin if you posted a question on facebook, you might get a variety of user opinions.
We hated ours, maybe you'll love yours.
I'll just leave this topic alone, and wish you good luck. lol
