Fishdog One, yeah it aint easy on judging the smaller moose, this one gave us plenty of time to look at many different angles.

Well pulled everything today. Pretty grateful for the beautiful weather, sunny and a little chill in the air smile

The water dropped pretty good, never a good thing when running a prop! A little grinding and filing and it will be good for next season when I make that run again.

Of course there always has to be that one thing that happens that puts a damper on the day. I stopped at the mouth of the river to the launch and downloaded all my gear, humped it up to the truck. Walked down the river looking and hoping I could make that 500 yds run to the launch. Hopped into the boat pulled and snap! It started but the dang pull cord broke frown Made it about a hundred yds before I started hitting rock and called it, Ended up walking the boat up to the trailer.

Picked up 5 more today smile

Got what I needed to get the marten boxes and bait stations up and running when trapping season opens next month.

Be safe out there!

Thanks for the compliments guys! smile

RdFx they were Bridgers #4.

Spent the weekend up in TOK with Ted, akntrpr, went over gear and boiled and waxed traps. Mine were a mess, ended up putting them in a concrete mixer and getting all the full metal jacket stuff off before dying and waxing them. I think I am done trying new stuff for a spell and will just stick to the tried and true smile
His shop is getting pretty dang full with lure and has a pretty good selection of gear!

Been going over the sleds, got the Polaris up and running, Ted came down and did a little welding on the Bravo, just waiting on front suspension springs and she will be ready to roll! All the gear is ready to go and I am going to spend this last week before season to knock out a bunch of snares.

Hoping this storm front brings us some snow that sticks around for a while.

Be safe!

Sounds like it is getting real! Have a little snow here, but hope it gets nice and cold for a week first and then a foot would be good. Would be pretty rough to go very far right now.
