    I have an older navionics chip that I use in my boat. I have the capability to link to my Ipilot, but refuse to buy the Iowa and South Dakota lake master chip to do it. Lake master maps are very nice, but for the leisure fisherman that I am, I have found that navionics works just fine for me. They show all the contour and detail that anyone would need in my opinion.
    Best part is, one navionics chip will for sure cover any potential state that I will be fishing.

    There is no snow on the ice so if you choose to walk its an easy pull. Bigger issue is the wind will blow your stuff around while pulling it and ice spikes are a must to have. Its slippery for sure.

    Couple questions I have which could make a difference….#1 Since they were pheasant hunting, could you tell by the shell casing you found if it was a slug or birdshot. #2 how fresh of kill was the deer? Was it still warm…?

    taking a guess here, but will say he can not carry a gun since his tag is filled. As far as tagging along, I would say he can, but can’t participate in the hunt and wouldn’t let him away from your side. by participate, I mean walk a draw to push deer, say hay daddy there comes one,etc.

    I have the same problem with my trolling motor getting hit on the front post when unloading. Is not a problem when loading the boat though. I have a quick release mount so I just slide the motor back when unloading and secure it when in the water. If you shorten the post based in the curve out the bow your boat might load further on the trailer. But pics would help.

    Doe fever maybe? I have made my fair share of bad shots over the years as well and still struggle with the thought of some of them. When I was younger I quit bow hunting for several years because of it mostly because I wounded deer and didn’t recover it. Its all part of the bowhunting sport. Were you in a stand or on the ground? I think a 9 yard shot from the stand is a very difficult shot. Would rather take a 20 to 30 yarder.

    I just put on new tires of on my pickup and have been impressed with them so far. The guy that sold them too me was big on them and they didn’t break the bank like the big name brands. I also understand that Dodge is putting this brand on all new trucks out of the factory. I did search reviews online before I bought them and the reviews were good. I paid $161 per tire on my ford f-150 with 17 inch rims. They are the Nexen Roadian AT. Worth a look.

    My understanding is every year there is cases of EHD just varies on how severe it can be. I think with the wet year we have been having I dont think it will be severe and will probably go mostly unnoticed. Hope we never get a bad outbreak like we had 4 years ago. Should be a great year for big deer again.

    in reply to: Pickled northern #1580971

    Quote by: TrapCyclone

    I have never tried pickled fish myself, but definitely need to try it sometime. Why is this recipe popular with northern pike? Is it because of the y-bones?

    Part of it is because the Y-bone will dissolve when you pickle it, but more because of the texture of the meat and you can get alot of meat off a northern to make a good sized batch. Pickled perch is also excellent. I tried pickled blue gills one time and did not like it at all. The meat turned out kinda slimy while perch and northern just has a better texture.

    Edit: always wondered about pickled musky. Anyone tried that? 😉

    in reply to: Red River #1581123

    Are you after catching monster cats or looking to eat a bunch? I have fished the red river for cats a handful of times. If you want to wear out your arms catching 17 to 30 lb cats all day, go to Selkirk. I can’t remember what you can keep in Canada but I don’t think you can keep much. I have fished grand forks a couple times as well. Much smaller average there, but for eating fish it’s the much better option to fish north dakota. So depending what you want food or fight and go from there. Personally I don’t keep catfish so Selkirk is my choice. The Times I’ve been there I would guess average weight was 22 pounds. Catching a catfish under ten pounds was rare there.

    I was curious if youth can keep panfish or any other fish and if they count towards their limit? I know with trout it specifically says 5 per license but it doesn’t say this with any other fish. So if I took my 9 year old son could I keep 50 bluegills or 25 if he does not have a license?

    Youth under 16 fishing with a licensed adult can keep their own limit. So you and your child can have a total of 50 panfish per day, 10 walleye, 30 catfish, etc.

    Partially accurate….Youth under 16 dont need to be with a licensed adult and can fish by themselves and keep a limit. Once they turn 16 then they need to buy a license. I.E. a 13 year old kid can go to the pond without a licensed fisherman and keep fish.

    I believe Lakemaster is the only chip that will make your ipilot and link work. Navionics last I knew is not compatible with the link. You may want to visit minnkota and humminbird website to confirm that.

    in reply to: More Rain ! #1584288

    Quote by: littlealfet

    According to my rain gauge looks like we had another 3 inches of rain already this morning here at Spirit Lake. I wonder if we get much more if it could turn into No-Wake for boats here at the IGL area for awhile.

    That would be great! Maybe then IGL can be a good place to go fishing on weekends without getting buzzed by wave runners and pleasure boaters all day.
