Re: Spring Time

Al, you are correct about the suckers being safer to eat. Michigan puts out a Fish Consumption Advisory. It’s pretty sobering to read, a lot of contaminants in our fish. Methyl mercury comes from coal burning power plants, and limits consumption of many popular Great Lakes species. The not so funny ...

Re: warm wet snow: kicker skins vs soft kick wax

Gareth, I am very happy with red/silver in similar conditions. My biggest complaint is I’m using it mid-winter!

Re: E99 vs. Outback 68 vs. Sporten Ranger

I see where Al is coming from. ...And Woods, that is freaking impressive! I step turn and wedge turn my Gamme and love it! However I can easily Tele turn my 200 cm Asnes USGI skis with either my 75 mm setup or my NNN-BC set-up. My two pair of USGI came from Coleman’s Army Surplus for under $100 ship...

Re: Alfa Greenland 75 Advance Leather Boots

Canna, When do we get your review of the Rifugio? I know what you mean about welted soles. Although I admit my Alaska BC are great with the Gamme. I wouldn’t mind a lighter welted sole than the Ski March at times. That doesn’t mean I don’t appreciate the Ski March, I really like it a lot. I just thi...

Re: E99 vs. Outback 68 vs. Sporten Ranger

If the OP is looking to turn a bit, without a lot of deep snow, perhaps an E-109 would be the ticket. I personally would not buy too short of a ski. If you are covering ground between downhills, speed is more fun. When I have deeper, softer, snow, and I am thinking more about turns, I ski a more dow...

Re: Spring Time

Woods, The canoe is a Wenonah Solo Plus. I was looking for a sit on top kayak back then that would work with my then 7 year old son. I also wanted to be able to fish solo on the Great Lakes and local inland lakes and rivers. I couldn’t be more pleased even after 10 years. However I am planning to bu...

Spring Time

The start of spring means different things in different places. Teleman seems like he is still into snow and making syrup. Tom said he had good snow at 8000 ft. In my part of the world, snow is gone, and most inland fishing is closed. We can still fish on the Great Lakes, and the waters that connect...

Re: The Great North American ASNES FEVER!

Perhaps the reason I like my FT downhill is the 3-pin cable bindings and my Alico Ski March boots. I don’t think I could do the same in my Alaska BC

Re: Sbounds...leathers

Be nice to see some of your photos again T-man. Crocus in my yard, no snow. I heard the suckers are running. They are an ugly fish, with lots of bones, but very sweet flesh. They also bioaccumulate very few chemicals, one of the safest fish to eat from the Great Lakes. Catching them is easy, and all...
