  1. Sweet.
  2. If you want a stock replacement Bilstein 4600's are pretty good from what I read. I'm lifted with Bilstein 5100's with 883 coils and an add-a-leaf. Rides great.
  3. Kinda busts the banana conspiracy theory. Lol.
  4. I have to correct myself I did buy a couple new bucktails, I just remembered. I also picked up a Shimano 300 Tranx. Tested it a couple times before ice up and it is going to be a nice one.
  5. Spring is coming and we can actually do some field testing of all the new lures bought over the winter. /I didn't buy actually but I still need to use some old ones I haven't worn out yet.
  6. 100% doesn't hurt. They have been tested for many years in salt water on fish that have bigger teeth and weigh much more before they were ever introduced to muskie fishing.
  7. I use swivels on everything but walk the dog top waters and glide baits. A swivel is too heavy for them I think.
  8. The ubiquitous fluorocarbon leader link: Sorry, no links allowed.
  9. Kinda funny that a TG is winning everything over the girls. That's what equality get's ya. lol.
  10. Why not recycle them?
  11. Pickerel. Once they reach 24", they give awesome fights on regular tackle.
  12. Sharpton built a career on false attacks. Where's he been in all this?
  13. Sift the beetles out. They aren't anything to worry about really. They don't spread disease and are extra protein.
  14. I used to do a sourdough pizza crust from a wild yeast starter I kept alive for a few years. A 24+hr rise in the fridge and it was incredible. One day something happened and it died. Tried to start another one but I it didn't last. Haven't made one in years. I do a simple hand kneaded dough now. I use KA bread flour, instant yeast, some honey, a bit of salt, olive oil and water. I vary the mix and knead process depending on how long I've got till I want pizza. Knead it right and it'll handle any topping and hand forming the crust. Didn't think about it till I read this. I might do a dough for tomorrow now.
  15. Bucktails of various colors and sizes are a staple in the musky world. Depends on your water but sliver blades and black bucktail is usually a good producer. I have a bunch of lures and carry them with me but I usually end up using only a few of them. Leaders can be a touchy subject in the musky word. I use crimped 130lb Seaguar fluoro for casting and some trolling. Some will say musky can saw through the fluoro but I've yet to have a musky come close but I've had musky snap a couple 7 strand leaders.
