  3. I had too go to his face book page
  4. Clearwater Lake Manitoba

    my dad grew up in The Pas, my grand parents owned the avenue hotel and they had a place on Clearwater. Summers we would go up and fish and ski and such. Lots of good memories, other than the horseflies (Bulldogs). My experience was always it really didn't matter what you used, for lakers as long as it was shiny it got hit. Our technique was pretty simple, drop it to the bottom and reel is up fast. they hit hard on the way up and its clear like superior so you can see them a long way down if you have good ice. The river right out of town is good for char too.
  5. K drill extension?

    Yeah, ok, I'm using the 8. My drill also overheated after punching 5-6 holes in quick succession. Thanks for the responses... sorry for hijacking the thread
  6. So I just came back from Lake Winnipeg, and the 3 feet of ice they have there and found my auger lacking. I gave up the gas auger years ago to switch to the clam plate and drill. Around here, even Bemidji where I fish the most, I have never had a problem with getting through the ice. Lake Winnipeg is a different story. Anyway, I have a 6 inch bit now, and when with drilling a couple holes side by side to deal with the big fish but thinking back to my old 10 inch strikemaster I was almost willing to deal with all the issues I had with it to have some space to wrangle a fish. Soooo, im looking at going with an 8 inch bit, with the Milwaukee and the clam plate. I know that clam had a gearbox in the past that would help with that but seems they no longer offer it. will I tear up my drill with the bigger auger? I have two 9 amp batteries and double the torque now too so I'm figuring a few extra holes compared to the five amps and 650inc pounds I had for the previous drill setup. Suggestions? thoughts? other than getting a gas auger, cuz that isn't happening.
  7. K drill extension?

    That would make a difference now wouldn't it? Oops my mistake I have a 6 inch just got done fishing today with 5 amp battery I got 27 holes at 19 inches of ice. I noticed the drill seemed warm after drilling 5-6 in a row but no problems. I don't have a gas auger any more but I see what the guys are saying about a power auger.
  8. If you want to get in there by snow mobile or walking over, Wolf Lake is worth a try.
  9. Is regular hso Ice forum messed up?

    Same.....Even when logged in it tells me I have no permissions.
  10. Thanks all. FYI I'm located on Frazer Bay on Vermilion. Give a shout out if/when you may be on the water up there. I may give the Pike River Flowage a try tomorrow or Saturday. I'll provide a report if I go. Thanks again.
  11. charcoal sales?

    @Rick G, it's about the questionable link they left. Either something hard is going to popup. Or someone may end up with a virus. Or both!
  12. K drill extension?

    MrPike, you using the 6" or 8" k-drill?
  13. I sure would like to see your video Curt, but can't seem to get past the error code myself. Hope it was a good one, and always look forward to seeing them..
  14. Tickle stick paint falling off

    Thanks Rick G that will be this springs project one thin spray on the top and bottom should be just right. Seems they all have this issue you’d think they’d do somthing about it.
  15. K drill extension?

    I've got a 9 ah battery ordered in addition to my 5 ah batteries. I'm thinking I should be in better shape. But with the ice getting pretty thick I'll be switching to my gas auger soon.
  16. K drill extension?

    Thanks for the replies I will be getting one today. Poseidon one thing to check is your blade sharpness Last year I thought my drill was getting weak I put new blades on and away I went. With this open winter they tend to dull faster just an idea. I'm getting about 15 -18 holes per battery in 20 inches of ice also with same set up.

    Teach them up in the way they should go. And they will never part from it! Great video! Mom probably loved the day off too!
  18. charcoal sales?

    @eyeguy 54, @Rick G Someone want to check this last poster out.
  19. Clearwater Lake Manitoba

    Planning a trip up to Clearwater towards the end of March. Hoping to get into some big Lakers up there and possibly some big Pike if the Lakers are slow. Anybody fish up there? I've been scouring the webs but there isn't a lot of useful information out there. Uncut Angling videos have probably been the most helpful. Thanks!
  20. Where's it at? What depth? What are you using? Don't care about what lake as I know we don't want the masses destroying our precious spots...
  21. charcoal sales?

    Home Depot, 2- 20lb bags of Kingsford, $9.88. As an added bonus, it's not wal-dump
  22. same here too....
  23. K drill extension?

    How many batteries do you guys bring along? I went out to Horseshoe the other day and drilled holes until both my batteries were dead and never marked a fish. With 18" of ice, i bet i'm only getting 10-12 holes per battery. 15 max. I thought i would get closer to 40 holes per battery in 18". I'm using the exact Milwaukee drill they recommend with the 5 amp-hour batteries... Moral of the story is... i'm tuning up the gas auger.

    Very cool video Thank you for sharing this
  25. Tickle stick paint falling off

    Yep, the paint has come off quite a few Tickle sticks. Thin coat of spray paint should work. I have touched up the tips on a few rods over the yrs, it seems to hold ok. The trick is to not go too thick, or it will crack
