  1. Yeah, I think the banks are going to own a lot of campers, cars, trucks, boats, etc in 3 to 6 months and they will want to unload them. Too many people running out and buying campers, boats then a vehicle to pull them. Put them on 72 to 120 months of "easy" payments. The economy and jobs haven't recovered as fast as they thought it would and they won't be able to make those "easy" payments. The buyers will take it in the shorts and those of us who have been financially conservative during this period will have numerous buying opportunities.
  2. OMG I hope that's not factual, but Beaver and Bull are close to their flood levels and Table Rock is the only lake with room.
  3. PLEASE!! Don't give him any ideals!! 😂
  4. Looks like the lake level is headed up due to all the rain. I hope it doesn't get too high because when everyone was catching two fish per hook, I couldn't get to my boat without using another boat! We are heading down next weekend for an extended stay (along with probably 60,000 of my closest friends😆). The wife and I came two weeks ago to do a little meat fishing and did well, but we lost two crappie to some unemployed otters😡. Hopefully the fishing will still be good, I can reach my boat on the dock, the tackle I've been stockpiling based on everyone reports will still be good and I
  5. WOW!! What a day!! I'm sorry, I musta missed the address and location of that lake in your report!! 😁
  6. I don't think that is what he fell on!!!! 😂
  7. OH MY!!! This should be good!!!!!
  8. Yeah, she listed marijuana as an essential item..... go figure that one out🤔
  9. The title got me! I thought we were going to learn about quarter sticks of TNT or crank phones!! 😲 As usual, nice job and we appreciate the information!!!
  10. Yep, days like that are why I sold the 521 and bought a 1850! TM with spot lock, cruise control and IPilot link, a full windshield that can be sealed off and a little Buddy heater behind the windshield!! Wife doesn't mind fishing when it's cold now..........and neither do I !! Still can't catch fish, but at least we're comfortable!!! 😆 Oh, Nice Fish!!!!👍
  11. I bought a 1850MS last year and took delivery in July. Took about 4 months most of that was waiting for the motor. Idle Time is right about the MAP pricing. Best deal is to look for incentives from Ranger and dealer. dont know about the bottom color. Been told and read that black is best, but certainly couldn't prove it. Mine is black but I'm way up the Kings and don't want to deal with the stain or mud line on a white bottom
  12. Yep, Area 71 or Terry's in old Shell Knob
  13. Well said M&M, wishing all a happy day with family and friends!!!! Now on to peeling potatoes!!
  14. Com on Vernon, just do what I do. I tie 10 PDF braid to my cane pole and don't have any problems!!!!!!!!
  15. Great report and pictures!! And now very expense! .............. I showed it to the boss and now she wants to try to target walleye this fall. So....... I am now the proud owner of a portable heater, two trolling poles with line counter reels, two rod holders, 24 pencil weights in various sizes and a drift sock to slow the boat down while trolling!!!!!! I do like the thought of just setting at the console and sipping a beverage while I fish!! Could you in the future just report that you caught a few more, no sizes, no numbers and no pictures!! LOL
  16. Not much love for the wife and me either. Could find fish here and there, but not any numbers even around bait. Tried the drop shot, both plastic and the real deal. Caught a few on the live worms, but all short. Gave up and tried trolling, caught a keeper crappie, but again everything else was small. Probably didn't help that the boss wanted to sleep in and the earliest we got on the water was 8:30😖 Both Sunday and Monday. Oh well, we'll be back in 3 weeks and the fishing should improve, plus the traffic won't be as bad!
  17. You won't be disappointed with the Helix! I have the Helix with MDI on the bow through the TM and he Solix with Si at the console. Had a 998 on the bow and a 1197 at the console and the G3 Helix is a huge step change in clarity! Had the I-Link added to both heads so I can, if I choose, run the TM from either position or the remote. I've heard good things about Ulrich, but I haven't used them, yet. I hope I don't need them, but it's where I would head if I had a problem.
  18. Great question, i have the same concern and am looking forward to the thoughts and suggestions from everyone.
  19. We'll be back Labor Day also. Would love to catch fish on a spoon, seems all I do when I tie one on is stretch my line out 😁
  20. I’ll be out Friday morning, mossy over and say hi! May be out tomorrow morning if the weather is good, the wife doesn’t want to get her hair wet😂🤣😂
  21. Should’ve come over, the catching was enough to share. Would’ve enjoyed meeting you!!!
  22. Drop shot, live worms. Had to cut em in half because we were running out. Not much size but very active catching, the wife had a ball!!! Went back, but “no joy”!! Had a hard time locating anything to speak of this morning!
  23. Yep that was the boss and me! Caught north of 40 but mostly all shorts, wife had a ball though
  24. I agree!! I'm not a great fisherman, but the success I have on TR is due to the trips we've taken with Bill. And no one knows how expensive he can be. After the first trip 5 or 6 years ago and the wife caught a 5-6 pound LM I had to buy a fishing boat!!!!!!!!!!!
