Rivernut,

I'm still around, just not as much as I used to be.

The hot bite on Mille Lacs has kept me busy up there.

The last time I was on the river was over the Memorial day

weekend. The walleye fishing was good, my 6 year old daughter caught a 28" walleye that was the highlight of the weekend.

The water is stained despite the lack of rain. The level has remained stable as always on this stretch. There is a big mayfly hatch underway, it started yesterday. The boat is on the lift and when I get done with this I think I will head out for a couple of hours and see what the walleyes are up to.

Hope you have a great Fourth! If you need any specific info let me know and I will try to help.

Take care!

      Those are quantom blades in that picture and they work great for reopening holes and I never had a problem with it being bad for the blades in fact that ring around the bit on the bottom is to help guide the blade when going through a preexisting hole

      Mine looks like that.  And it does reopen holes, and is sharp.  But, had read in past it was not good for the blade.  A friend indeed has attached a 10" Strikemaster, dual blade to his Eskimo so it does work.  His impressively cuts holes quickly, at angles, etc.  He spears so he does 5 holes side by side , 3 holes deep, then augers side ways to remove in between.  Works well.  Complete hole done, less scooping, in under 10 minutes.   Thanks for all the advice.  Could use something larger than 8" anyway, so may go to 10.  Also will redo back part by toy hauler door, under bunks to a 20" x 5' hole, covered and hinged of course.  May spear, but even if not I love watching the fish and various movements of bait, etc.   Again, thanks for being generous. Wahoo
