Morning all,

Eddie....great news on your Mom  :thumbsup:  congrats on the retirement decision  :clap:

IW....welcome back, glad the vacation was a good time  :clap:

WS....hope you aren't too sore this morning  :pinch:

IFF....Jake's a handsome fella, bet he's a good copilot  ;) 

Drifter....the weatherman sure can mess up one's plans  :%$#!:

H2L.....congrats on the bowling  :flex:  glad Lindsay caught a few birthday fish  ;D

Z.....sorry to hear about the car problems  :(  hope the tire arrives today  ;)

The trip home yesterday was uneventful, traffic seems almost as light as it was right at the beginning of covid  :blink:  not sure what's up with that, but definitely not complaining either  :whistle:

Still waiting for the call that the boat is ready to pick up  ::)  guess we shouldn't have told the guy "no rush"   :unsure:

Have a good day. Stay safe, stay healthy.

Morning all, 66° and drizzly here, and that's pretty much the forecast all day, mid 60s with off and on drizzle.

No tire yesterday... called before going to pick it up, and they said it wasn't there yet. It better be today, cause I blew a wheel cylinder on the wife's car this morning. If it isn't one thing, it's another 🤬

Good morning IW, Eddie! Good morning everyone :bow:

50 degrees this morning we may make it to 65

IW.....Welcome back :thumbsup: I am guessing you had some long days and nights :whistle:

Eddie....I hear you on hospitals these days. Hope everything works out for your mom :thumbsup:

WW.....Hope your return drive home was uneventful  :thumbsup:

h2l....Sounds like you had a fun day on the water with Lindsay :thumbsup:

Bud.....No trees are safe no matter how far away :roflmao:

Yesterdays job was a rough one. By the time I got finished I was cold, soaked and slow moving. The guy was happy and turned out to be a good helper. He had an old Farmall H that sure came in handy. Luckily I had thrown a couple pulley blocks in along with my heavier rope. The tree on the shed was fairly big and it took a good pull to lift it and swing it off. In the end the guy was very happy and even gave me a tip.

Nothing on the planner today.

Hope you all have a good day :thumbsup: Stay safe and keep healthy.

Good Morning Jeff, Morning Everyone,
  53* this am under partly cloudy skies, high of 68 today.

  Jeff…welcome back! Glad you had great time and good weather to boot, will be looking forward to hearing about it!   :clap: :thumbsup:
  Dave…sounds like time well spent getting the rest of the area ready for the SxS and plow, one less thing to deal with later on!  :thumbsup:  I’m really not familiar with Sxs’s and track systems, are they a real PITA to change out by yourself or not so bad?
  Bud…had to chuckle when you mentioned taking the pennies to the bank and the weight. Have a 5gl. water bottle filled with change and another on its way that will need a dolly to move at some point, lol.
  H2…glad you got on some fish and Lindsay hooked into a few…way to go Dad!   :bow:  Congrats to you and the team with the bowling, off to great start!  :clap:
  Z…fine looking group, nice job!!  :clap:  Hope the tire came in and your back up and running!   :thumbsup:
  Wally…thank you, the hospital actually discharged her yesterday and she is back at the nursing home. Hope you had safe travels back yesterday. :thumbsup:
  Marv…hope the tree job went smoothly yesterday and you don’t need to make a return trip today!  Saw one of your posts about using golf balls in the spear shack was bumped back to life.   :thumbsup: :clap:

  We received a message from the hospital that my Mom’s numbers were good and that she was to be discharged yesterday early afternoon. I met up with one of my sisters at the nursing home and we shared a compassion visit together with her for several hours. Still not so sure she should have been released so soon, but the way hospital’s are these days, they want to free up bed spaces as quickly as po$$ible. Anyway, the benefit of the nursing home is we are not limited to only 2 individual visits total per day, so that is a plus. Mom is holding her own and stable, so we are very grateful for that at this point in time.  :thumbsup:
  Not a heck of a lot on the planner today, will check back in later to see how everyone is doing…..Cawfee’s on!
Have a great day all, be safe, best of luck to those fishing!

Contico tuff boxes are great.  But they're kind of spendy and does have some weight to them.

I added the Pro Xover Cottage last year.  Shorter rods only in there but I like it a lot.   Since you have the pro seat and the black plastic base the seat sits on already all you should need is the cross rail, rail brackets and a couple of end caps.  Looks like the rail and caps are available on Otter's website under replacement shelter parts.  Might want to email or call them about the brackets.  Previously I fished off of a Magnum Pro sled with the seat rail and pro seat without the canvas.  It was easy to add the seating and quite comfortable. Good luck

Not sure if they fit,but I know that bench can get pretty uncomfortable. I put new canvas on my wild one and wow. New shanty.

General Ice Fishing Chit Chat / Re: Only perch eyes for bait?
« Last post by Muggsy on Sep 20, 2021, 07:55 PM »
What is the best way to preserve a few to try? I'm sure freezing is probably the way but simply as they are or submerged in water, or do they need to be frozen is some sort of weak preservative solution, like a low salt mix? I do keep some perch now and again and could put a few eyes away to try, once dead of course.

I did find a few mentions of other fish eyes, like bluegill and crappie, seems some have had no luck, some have had a bit of luck but perch eyes get the most attention.
