I spent 3 days working on mine this week. One of my fishing buddies came over and we open a bottle of Southern. Just wasn't the same....not cold when you stepped out. But it was nice! Getting some improvements in while the Wisconsin weather is nice !!!

Between 2 of us we filled 2 buckets...164 pumpkinseeds,perch and a few bass.

Fingertips were kinda sore from catchin' and cleaning fish. Kinda odd..a lot of the perch were suspended. I think this was the earliest I've ever been to catch some fall pannies.

We have a 6x9. we push/pull it out by hand. One guy pulling a long rope and one guy pushing! You have to watch the weather. IF it's going to warm up, don't put it out! Last year was tricky! We got it out though! One week later, guys were driving out with trucks (11+ inches)
