  1. Earlier
  2. A cool & at times wet morning. Seven enjoyed the time casting, twice that many custom bamboo rods in the rack. We had three deer graze the lawn for awhile across from the pavilion & pass back through later. Thanks to Jeff Fox for organizing & Bruce Olson for help setting up. Gordon Koppin brought out his tri-hex 6 weight rod a rare build with great action. This is likely the last activity for some time as the Early show is cancelled until a less covid time.
  3. John, I can't help you with finding another pedal drive, but I'm trying to learn more about them and I'm curious what you liked about the pedal drive vs. paddle and whether you think a pedal drive would be good for fishing use on our local rivers?
  4. A well deserved honor indeed, congrats Mike!
  5. Not sure if any one saw this but Mike Mladenik is being inducted into the Fresh Water Fishing Hall of Fames class for 2021. Congratulations Mike well deserved!
  6. The EPA and Illinois AG nailed the Jo Daviess factory farm during construction. They couldn't even follow what little rules this state has before getting a single pit dug. The group was forced to pull out. There is hope yet in this case.
  7. Talk about the citizens of that town and the surrounding towns getting absolutely F'd over! Disgusting! 😡

  10. I found one used and took it up to the boundary waters and it was great! On serious trips I’ll never kayak fish out of a traditional paddle kayak again. Looking to get another pedal drive though. Does anyone have one they are looking to get rid of now?
  11. To those of you who came to the September cast and compare on the fox river at Glenwood Park know what a success it was. So I decided to try the cane rod makers outing on Saturday morning October 17 - 8:00am until noon. That is Glenwood Park mile and a half south of the town of Batavia on route 25. Masks, gloves, and any other safety attire you would like as welcome.
  12. From their Citizens Against Hog Factory Farms Facebook page... Here is a brief update on the progress of two 5000 hog factories (CAFOs) planned for the area. Both CAFOs were to be in operation by September 15, 2020 as indicated on MorAgra’s application submitted to the Department of Agriculture in May of this year. The rumors that the project has been cancelled are not true. We believe that MorAgra is just waiting until residents in our area lose interest and stop with pressure on elected officials and various regulatory agencies. Since we cannot stop MorAgra from moving CAFOs
  13. Excellent! Thanks all.
  14. Would need to be changed weekly around here. 😔

  18. Thanks for the heads up Eric, we're looking into the issue and hope to have it resolved soon.
  19. Could be a CSS issue, or an outdated version of PHP. Worth having tech support look into it....
  20. Looks like the last version upgrade went awry, as quite a few of the graphics for buttons no longer load on mobile:
  21. If you get a chance to get your name on the list then do so. This is a gorgeous river with the toughest fighting smallmouth you’ll ever have on the end of your line. Please enjoy this newly released video and help save the Menominee River....
