Just made it home,drove a ways before I realized I had 4 wheel drive,pulled into a rest area to look in the manual,to see how to use it ,put it in 4 wheel ,and skid control, much better was able to do 50 then,fishing slow ,except for 8 and 9 in crappie,caught 50 of them,finally found a few bigger ones,the fish are thick and humpback, shad everywhere, fished from shore with gulps,there must be 50 miles of shoreline to fish,you just donit know where to fish,you can walk,climb hills,woods,prairie, deep valleys, bays,coves,beaches, rocks,need 20 years to learn that lake,only fell once,left two poles on side of the road,went back great guy already posted them on Facebook, seen me ,said I was waiting for to come back,great people down there,little hard to understand them,life is slower there.All the fish are heavy seen a 17 in bass caught,a football,seen 16in white bass caught.Went for a long hike up this giant hill ,down a valley to small cove with tons of wood washed up on shore,you could see that their was a flood,started to pick up bobbers,20 of them,then crankbaits,got a dozen of them,went back up the hill fell,rolled back down the hill Food Wood Animal product Fish Fish products

Mike send the reel when you are ready , no hurry. The 5000 sounds good. If you need my address send me a text.

Moved south and found that the food sucks here. So many options in Chicago. Here it’s all big box type restaurants. No mom and pop or hot dog stands. I did find a good burger here though. Believe it or not it’s from a local gas station. They cook it fresh on a grill in the back.
