I was up last week fishing and the walleye bite slowed way down but we did manage a few. The sunfish bite was hot. We threw back a lot of fish between 9 and 9 3/4 inches. We kept all we wanted under that and did a lot of C and R after we had what we wanted. Great trip again, the fishing this year has been really good for us. Hope the bite keeps up for a few more weeks as we will be at Arcadia for our yearly trip with my sons family and his in laws. Would love to get the grand kids on this bite.      :happy1:

Rode over to the NW access yday afternoon & man was the bottom of the ramp green. Must've been a few hundred, maybe even a 1,000 snails floating on the surface too. Could've been some of the AIS variety  (Faucet) they have over there, I'm not sure. The lake stunk real bad too!! :crazy: :pouty:

Mentioned it when we were over at the store on Sunday & Tim said he was just over to the NW PA. He pulled up just in time to see a rig coming out of the water & he said the pickup looked like it had water coming out of the doors of the cab. :crazy: :doofus: He also said he'd heard some chatter that the county had discussed closing the CR 35 one too because of the low water. So many power loading there as well so  the washout hole has become a major PITA too. :thumbs: :pouty:

For what itís worth on the more poverty stricken part of the neighborhood, south snd east of Marcell, lots of thunder and not much rain. Started my generator just in case because of all the warnings but nothing really happened. Everything just to the north. Sounds like better chance of rain snd possibility of severe weather after midnight.

:tut: :mooning: :pouty: No more than sat down around 6 at the meat raffle & it poured up there. Came home to 3 trees across the drive & no power. Checked the generator & it wouldn't start so we tried to jump it but no go. :scratch: :doah: Neighbor said when he checked his phone it said we had 70 mph winds, he also had 1.2" of rain & it must've came it in a short period the way the road looks. Chainsaws running solid here for close to 24 hrs, especially up the road. A tree on the power pole transformer up ~ 7-8 places yet late afternoon yday. Got a portable generator at L & M yday am & had it hooked up here by ~ 1 -1:30. Power was back on when we got back from Riley's last night around 7. :crazy: Heard your  :queen2: friends  :sleazy: were without power too, glenn. ;) :laugh: :laugh:

Got it narrowed down to either the solenoid and/or the starter. Been too busy to get really involved. The solenoid doesn't look like it would be that hard to take out & get tested, the starter on the other hand might  be a PITA. Kind of thinkin  :scratch: that there may have been a spike/surge in power when it went down & while the generator was tryin to start that was the culprit. :confused:

Yup, 20kw that starts automatically after a 30 second delay whenever the power goes out & runs on propane. Runs for 20 minutes every Tuesday @ 2:00 on a maintenance cycle too!

 :scratch: There's no coffins with pockets  ;) :rolleyes: :laugh: is what the neighbor always says so you can't take it with you. May as well spend some of it. Brother got a deal on it & it was way cheaper to have it put in when we rebuilt than it would've been after the fact. From what I understand just having the transfer panel/switch put in can run $2-3000 & ours was more like $4500 installed for ours. Not sure of the brand but it's made by Generac or GE, the 2 biggest mfgs.

Ours is a GE, brother put his good meter on it today. He had 13.5 - 14 volts going directly from the battery to the starter but when he went through the solenoid/relay it was more like 3 or 4 volts. He called a shop over NW of Bemidji & they are going to call us back. We were told by a friend in L & M on Saturday not to bother to call Williams in Squaw Lake as they a booked solid into next year already. :crazy:

Lots of wind & rain again for ~ 10-15minutes but blue sky by 6:45. Lights went out 3 times again, generator has started twice. The service tech was here by a little after 12 today & we didn't call 'til around 8 this morning. Took him 10-15 minutes to get it running, ended up it was just the battery. :doofus: We tried to jump it 3-4 times too but we didn't have another battery the right size to fit in there so we didn't hook up the wires. :crazy: As long as he was here we had him do some other maintenance on it to. Great guy who specializes in generators & great service :happy1: :cool: we'll be doing business again for any future issues. Clearbrook Electric is the business.
