Great info guys thanks alot, I am leaning towards just going with a 2500 Duramax, but man they sure went up in price from a few years ago :(

I really like those numbers with the ecoboost but I agree seems like if one put some turbo stuff on the V8's they would be stronger as well. .

Thanks


Which is why the Duramax is a turbo diesel. Take the turbo off it and you're looking at maybe 300 hp and 440 lb/ft torque as opposed to the 445 hp and 910 torque.

Everyone knows they'll just disappoint so there's no use talking about them.

Would have been interesting to see what Molitor could have done with this group of players though.

I love the diesel but there are some drawbacks. One of them being ice fishing... With the diesel keep in mind obviously heavier so you might get stuck having to wait longer to get on the ice before resorts allow 3/4 tons with wheel houses.

But for me that wouldn't be an issue.


I agree that diesels are great for towing but they cost $5 - $8k more than a comparable gas, diesel is more expensive than gas to fill up and you need to use DEF. Of course there's the emissions issues they all seem to have too. So if you're just getting a new truck to pull the fish house 5 - 10 times a year, a diesel might not be the answer. JMO

Some of the posts here are mind boggling. Some real angry people out there. Not sure what your job/pay has to do with tipping someone else for doing a good job. If you can't afford to do that you shouldn't be using their services in the first place...


It's not anger and it's not that I can't afford it, it's just simple economics and if that boggles your mind, I can't help you. When wait staff were making $3/hr when the min wage was $7.25, it made sense to tip them 20% because that's how they were making their money. Now that the government has mandated $15/hr (MPLS and St. Paul and soon everywhere with the crop of clowns in St. Paul), which is double or triple what they were making before, why should I give them 20% of a bill that has already gone up to cover their $15/hr wage? I'll still tip, just not 20%. They're getting paid their "livable wage" so in reality, we shouldn't be tipping them a dime extra.

Outside of mandated areas, I still tip 20%.

Interesting reasoning. So because a person makes a decent wage (waitress) they are less deserving of a tip than a person making real good money per hour. (guides) Are you sure you aren't just rationalizing a way to be cheap?

You can save yourself even more money by eating at home and buying your own beer. No need to let anyone else earn a living serving you.



Are guides making upwards of $100/hour? Not where I go their not. Maybe the owners but not the guides. I know my 19 year old niece made $600 in tips in 6 hours (2 - 3 hour shifts) a couple weekends ago plus her hourly wage and she didn't have to fight the freezing cold, blowing snow, drill holes, or clean fish. Hell she didn't even have to clear the tables. If you think a waitress in MPLS, St. Paul or any other place that mandates a $15/hr wage is worth $100/hr (hourly + tips) or more than by all means you give them 20% or more for a tip. I refuse to do it until my wage goes up by double or triple especially since I'm already paying more for the food because of the mandate. When I'm out-state or in another non-mandated $15+/hr state, I still tip 20% or more. But if you think giving a metro waitress a 20% or more tip is noble, go right ahead. As they say, a fool and their money are soon parted.

You are taking a special fishing trip I would certainly tip the guide.



Not when they're being paid $15/hr now.


You seriously don't tip waitresses/waiters anymore?


When wait staff/bartenders were making less than min wage and their main income was tips, I tipped 20% and sometimes more. I don't tip 20% at bars/restaurants in any city that mandates a $15/min wage and no tip credit to the owner which means that in St. Paul and MPLS, I don't tip 20%. Once the entire state goes to a mandated $15/hr, I won't do it throughout MN. When my wage/salary is bumped up double or triple what I was making before and I haven't done a damn thing to increase my output to make the company more money yet still make a buttload in tips which I only have to claim 8% of, then I'll tip 20% again. In the land of liberal lakes, I don't see it happening.
I've always tipped the guides/bomber drivers when I've gone ice fishing and wouldn't stop even if the state mandated a higher min wage because they aren't doing their job expecting a big tip (in my opinion) and work in freezing temps, bad weather, etc.

I would not trust to get straight answers from walleye central. Not that fishing forums aren't good places to find answers, but that the border restrictions change quite frequently.

I'd go to the Canada Border Services Agency website to get the real deal.

here's link

https://www.cbsa-asfc.gc.ca/menu-eng.html

I've traveled many times to Canada and referred to this website about different regulations. its up to date and if you have any questions you can call.


I used a private law firm (www.bordercrossing.ca) in Canada to get answers and have someone to call if things went south when I made my first entry into Canada a few years ago after a DUI in 1998. They still give free consultations if you get on their site and fill out the form.
I got through without an issue. They did give us a thorough check my first time through but since then we just give them the passports, they scan them, and we are on our way.

Good Luck!

funny when white people talk about equal rights.... yes we should all have equal rights


Some people are more equal than others. You know like when you get to live by your own set of laws and regulations that 99% of the population doesn't get to live by or have casinos that make millions and billions yet pay no state or federal income taxes and then you still get millions from the federal government. You mean that kind of equal?
