Sniper9, As the lakes warm into summer, start looking for suspended fish. While guiding one evening we caught some nice crappies suspeneded over 24 ft of water. The crappie hit our spinner/minnow rigs before hitting the bottom. The walleyes were under the crappies, as a 3lb. walleye we caught, had 2 crappies in its belly. My client had never saw anything like this before. Later we used jigs with fatheads to catch the suspended fish. He thought it was great, crappies and walleyes in 1 spot.

My parents live on Norway lake, I have fish suspended crappies there for several years. Finding them is maybe the toughest thing. Moving around watching the locator for marks between 10 and 16ft. over 20ft of water or deeper. I use 1/16 oz jigs with minnows, and sit over them, useing my trolling motor.

Give that a try, and good luck.

We found some this weekend on Norway. I have a place on the main lake. They seem to be scattered, but some were

11-12 inch fish. Slip bobber fishing off a couple of

deeper breaks. On Sunday when my wife was loading the

jetski, a guy loading his boat told her he caught a 52" Muskie fishing sunnies. I don't believe there are any in

Norway, let alone a 52" fish. Can anyone verify muskies in

Norway, what do you think?

Muskies were planted in there in the 70's. However, I don't think many showed up.

      I haven't but I'very heard that there have different versions of the clam adapter and Milwaukee has made some changes as well in their design to deal with higher torque ratings.  Give Clam a call with you drill mod4l number and I'm sure they'll be able to help you out with which is the correct for your drill.

      2/26/17   With ice conditions deteriorating, we hit the Crow River for the second weekend in a row. Casting 1/8 ounce VMC Mooneye Jigs tipped with 3" Berkley Power Grubs in orange and chartreuse combinations, we caught walleyes up to 18" and pike up to 31" as well as a couple carp. Remember, pike and walleyes, as well as bass, are closed in MN now except on most navigable rivers. Also, your fishing license expires tomorrow. I will be giving a seminar at the Home and Sport Show at the McLeod County Fairgrounds on Saturday, 3/4 at 11 am. Will be presenting about walleye fishing on area lakes, but happy to answer questions and talk about anything fishing. Stop in and say hi. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Thats what I'm thinking its what 25-30 years old and stating to not run as good as it used to so putting money into probably won't be worth it vs just buying a whole new auger.
