...yee ole jig and minnow...

2 posts in this topic

..canoes, packs and poles in tow, we made are way into entry point #30 and up the chain of lakes that harbor the tasty 'eyes' we were bent on harvesting.....

...we air packed a pile of minnows with us and set up a base camp well into the b.w.w.c.a.... the three days of fishin that followed was spectacular! Yellow or green hair jigs tipped with a minnow provided non-stop action...12 fow seemed to be the magic depth....enjoyed a few meals of fresh fish and tossed more than we can count back into the drink to be caught another time....the weather was unusual; rain, drizzle, misty followed by more rain all in a warm weather pattern...never saw the sun....now convinced global warming a reality....hooked a few big ones, but nearly all the fish were in that 15" to 19" range...If one could reach these area's with boat and motor, it would not be long before they would be fished out...as it is, it is pure joy to experience a walleye feeding frenzy that many claim can only be had in canada...we generally go through an outfitter, but this time brought our own canoes and parked at the public lot...thanks to the yo-ho who siphoned off our gas while we were out( and every other vehicle there) it confirms that we will not be judged by what we have, but by what we have given...and we hope our gas gets you to where you are going...(:

Thanks for the report.

Ya a lot of low lifes stealing and whatever else in them areas now. Seeing more and more kids from these areas at work for just what your talking about and stealing from cabins. If anyone has a cabin take anything of worth or that you care about home when you lock up for winter!

      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.
