I saw the flyer and the deals. Was just there twice (live 20 minutes away) and I work so I probably won't make it out this weekend. It would be cool to meet a few of you guys but the salmon ain't gonna kill themselves.

I'd like to check out that lake michigan seminar too. Probably not much I don't know, just a lot of cool gear I dont have :lol3:

FYI - I was there yesterday to pick the Flambeau Storm Front Full Bodies and they did not have them in yet. I checked with the dude at the waterfowl counter and he would not give me a rain check. He said they should be there in a day or two.

It was the busiest I have seen the place at around noon on a weekday. There was two buses full of snot nosed kids just leaving too. I can't imagine what Saturday is going to be like.

I fish out of Port Washington, havent seen a perch in years. I hear they still get them in Mil though if you know what angle to take.

Probably head to bago next week. Pa just bought a fancypants GPS/plotter/navionics/wholenineyards deal from Cabelas.
