Jonah sorry I missed you at the shop today, my boy and talked to some other fellow behind the counter, kinda vauge with his directions. But my boy and I found the lake, with no problems. What a beautiful lake that is, love the water color and clarity. It was really capping out there, but we managed to pull in 7 nice eyes, and some of ther pesky rockbass.

I appreciate the willingness to help, the other local bait store was not as customer friendly. You have a new customer and I will certainly pass along my experinces to my other fishing buddies.

Thanks I will try to post some pics later. I think we are heading to Fish Hook tommorow.

Any do's and don't I should know about the lake??

      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
