Last week walleye fishing I was catching them every now and then(sunfish). Plus pretty much every walleye I cleaned last week had sunfish in there stomachs. When bass fishing or anything shallow they were within 5ft. of shore spawning. So from 6" to 14' you should be in business.

For the better quality fish, I would do some searching over the main basin of any area lake and focus on the top 5% of the water column.

      You can use the clam plate with the k-drill, they make an adapter. The K-drill recommends a minimum of 725 or 750 for torque, so you almost have to get the higher end drills. The newer Clam has the gear box which will double your torque with a 2:1 gear ratio. You can pick up the conversion box for $70. They had a deal on those at the show last weekend, as well as the K-drill. The K-drill cuts through the ice like butter, if you get the clam plate and conversion box, you should be able to still get double the torque then. So Clam plate $70, plus the Clam conversion box ($70), and add in the K-drill ($215), and I already have a drill. Brings the total up to $355. But don't have to purchase gas or propane or, light weight, no fumes. I will let everyone know how it works out.
