  1. until

    Thank you Sir. Much appreciated. Those who were out there years back is there enough to keep one occupied for the 3 days if your not signed up for the salmon class?? Just say I drive out just do a walk through maybe pop into a seminar that I might be interested in?? Thanks for any input.
  2. until

    Does anyone know what the walk in shows are as I assume that all paid shows are locked up by now or a guide reference to look at. I got into the walleye seminars are but doesn’t say booked full or pay$$Xamount to get in. Any help would be appreciated!!!
  3. LOL, yes the desires are always there!! It’s like a drug, the old saying goes JUST SAY NO!!
  4. That's a brilliant idea for keeping the net bag its self doesn't give you the green wiener!! But the problem I had with this horse I mean 25+ like in the old snagging era. Folks remember when high 20's mid 30's wasn't uncommon I didn't have enough strength to get the net over the fish. There was to much resistance against just the net itself to even get the net up to the net so I told my girls to walk towards me and we'll drop her right in. Notta. So I can see why they net in the direction of the flow of the boat not against it. Cause I wasn't strong enough to move the net towards the fish let alone deep enough to not touch the fish because that's exactly what happened I touched the fish after a good 1/2hr that fish took off towards the bow and turned right down and say good bye!!
  5. Yes I agree with ya on the I love my Islander I love my Sea-Ray I/O I'm not fortunate to own 2 boats!! Just jealous not mad LOL
  6. Are they having any seminars like last year. The guys on the walleye was what I went for. Great job buy all the guys doing the seminars!! I nearly passed out when I heard they were going to be talking about something other than salmon
  7. Thanks so much for the answers I was looking for. I'm not new at fishing just with these big hombres. The 16-19# fish were no problem but that horse which busted up a lot of gear and my 13 year old daughters took turns getting it to the boat and I blew the net job. I felt like a heel. They were PO'd at dad and rightfully so. thanks again guys I got a pretty good grip on things should things transpire next year!!
  8. I can't believe it either same situation. I have more than 1 person can use in a years time in lures, spoons. I have enough poles and reel than I'll use this entire coming season. I've run into deals on spoons of every color brand size and same as lures!! Lots are still in the package but not "per say" brand new. I actually don't have a need to buy anything in the bait end of the stick. I've been a lowrance guy for ever, I got the Bass Pro Master catalog and I'm thinking they came out with a new version of the ti version but yet I got a email from our local Cabelas and no mention of the ti and the only thing that I would like to update is my lowrance Elite series to the Hook9 but the new Ti series if I'm correct in my mind I can almost move to the 10" screen although I have no room to be honest for that big of a screen. So I'll be watching this. I have no desire to just spend the money to have the greastest-newest as I'm happy with what I have. 99% of everything I have is second hand and that's allowed me to be where I am in the items needed to be successful. While I know we got off track I just wanted to let the new folks know there's nothing wrong with second hand stuff that you can see both sides of the items. Every one have a great 2019 season. Looking like it's going to be a early brown season but enough time for O'l Man Winter to raise Havoc, time will tell.
  9. That is true dedication guys!! My hats off to your determination!!! Your post and timing is the proof is in the pudding in the reasoning that I'm so done with I/O's way to much time lost with having to remove the water after each use !!!
  10. All good ideas, the only way I thought would be safe as the pig only had the circle hook in the fleshy part off to the side. So I was afraid that the triple hooks from the fly would get caught in the net and not allow the fish get all the way in the net. The resistance from the water going through the net kept me from doing a good net job and we lost it anyway but hey the season will be here soon!!
  11. I don't mean over the side of the boat I mean to actually net the fish. I have a swimplatform which my kicker is mounted to so as I see on TV I can't net head first off the stern so I net off the sides my gripe is to net the fish from tail to head as we only had 1 hook in the fleshy part of the mouth. Is it impossible to net a salmon from tail first?? like I do most my walleyes.
  12. Got a question for you seasoned salmon guys. Last year us eastern guys were blessed to have kings. I'm into walleye fisherman so I never had to cross this bridge. So OK I'm trolling 2.5mph to get 2.3 mph at the ball. Ok we hook up and it feels like a horse we get it up on the surface and along the boat. I'm not a power lifter or a noodle arm but I couldn't get the net from behind the and make the scoop. So I went and bought a thinner net figuring there's to much resistance using my walleye net. The other net had a bigger bucket yet a lot more net in the water. It was easier but I guess what would have been the smartest thing to do looking back on it would have been to back the speed off. What's your guys Take on it. What do you guys do. As a eye angler and 2.2 mph I never had to cross this bridge.
  13. I have the PYTHON steering and for me this is the cats meow!! Its controlled with a remote on a lanyard it has a couple built in tricks like long sweeping turns and I think it has a speed up then slow down. But I'm coupling the PYTHON steering with a i troll with all kinds of infinite throttle controls and all different kinds of programs to add different trolling programs speed up stop or almost stop yet keeps from having a knotted up mess. I'd definitely looks into this. You can get whatever strikes your fancy. The python system $ 600. And change and the I troll is $265-300 plus so $900+ or $1900.00 for others. Just FYI. Or the old tie rods to both motors plus needing a captain at all times. The EZ STEER I used for years before going with the PYTHON.
  14. Still willing to buy releases???
  15. My Knight has a vortex telescope on it I actually took a 2-7 Leopold off. Vortex has better glass than the VXII. Not saying Leopolds newer more higher$$$ ones aren't better now a days. I just bought a Vortex 4-16×30mm tube and illuminated recticals off a fellow on here that shoots mega distances as he's going more power yet. He knows his crap and from what I read and his Intel plus what my knight muzzleloader has a Vortex. I'm not in the know of better glass. Other than Saworski-sp.? I'll own 3 once this one I'm getting for my 22/250 yote rifle.
  16. Really nice boat video is awesome!! Left you a pm!! Used to go by PAP!!
  17. We had 2 of them when I was a kid 1 was a Terra Tiger and the other I think was a T Rex. They were bad azz machines. They were really nasty when we replaced the the old school Briggs with 440 rotax motors and had them fitted with sled drive pulleys and comet clutches. 40mph!!! All the power one could use. I used to use Terra Tiger to check my trap line when it was bad weather. Short cut was across our pond no problem.
  18. Most meats grind easier when chilled/stiff especially if under powered or under geared/speed unit is being used.
  19. Absolutely Chinook!! As a young guy we took our guns on the school bus, never ammo and guns we knew better it never happened. Our gym class was announced over the intercom, all those participating in the hunting class report to the gym. The school was close to farm fields that the game commission stocked pheasants, us guys and some girls went hunting the rest of the day. Guns went home via bus or buddy or parents. The term I used is the key to all of this "We knew better" our era was the last to have parents we respected!! Did I get a spanking?? You bet your bottom dollar. How many of us got taken home via the State police for driving gassed as we called it. Well my brother and I, our biggest fear that night was going to be dad in the door way. YES the cop gave us the full deal in the driveway lights sirens action. OOH Boy we are in deep shyt. We are the last!!
  20. Lowrance makes a unit called iFinder h2o that's all I ever used till the price of the finder/GPS units came down and even before they were available in 1 unit.
  21. LakeO is one of the best trout/salmon fisheries, Lake Erie is one of the best walleye fisheries in the country, why isn't LakeO trying to get something near the walleye populations to make LakeO the most sought after lake in the country. The structure of LakeO is so much like the Canadian lakes structure wise of course with out the depths. With the walleyes picking up on the gobies and able to get into the shallows to harvest the gobies. Are the populations still there like in the 80's or not. Why isn't there more light shed on this subject??
