This isn't no walleye

14 posts in this topic

Took my good friend Scott from work out yesterday to chase some walters ,fished a few creeks and such and finally found some clear water, but not a single one to be found except this:

Scott37lbs.jpg

37 pounds of "anything that comes near me is supper"

Took Scott a good 15 minutes to land this piggy.I even got a little nervous when I missed with the net, twice tongue.gif

Even LFC can net better than me today was one thought grin.gif

This was Scott's personel best and he was all giddy and wound up for the rest of the day. A few high fives and a couple of bumps later we headed for home to this nice sunset and a few more beers. sunset.jpg

Wow, nice job Brian. I bet that was fun!

I am amazed when I drive over the river in Chaska as to how high the water is!

Fireball jig and minnow on 15 pound spiderwire made for an interesting fight. Scott did a great job of keeping the fish out of the main channel. He asked me what would we do if it would have got out into the channel and my reply was, we got 40 miles of river and a good trolling moter to fight this thing.

      Seeing it's only your second year find buddy to go with as rock said. I even bring a second set of dry clothes and footwear. I am to big mess with thin ice I need 6 inches as rick said early varies so much so some where there is half as much ice.    Safety gear check include ice cleats as i have seen enough broken arms happen. Check your gear test the vexilar hook it up and turn it on to see if it runs or just hook up the charger. I use the drill plate so I charge all my batteries and with blade protecter on I make sure it works. My little sled is ready to haul my gear.    I go light during early ice so fill so fill up my plactics container and restock my jig boxes. Make sure my set ups have new line and pick my favorite set ups to take with. I can add some photos later

      Eyeguy with the new auger you got it will buzz through some ice easy as pie no worries

      p214.  49 bucks on the bay   600 pounds   regular ryobi is 350 pounds

      Lets say you have 1.5 ah batteries now and you drilled one and a half holes per battery. Unless that ice was 50' thick, have dull blades and your auger is 8, or bigger that's not a drill you want to put more money into.  So give us some info on your auger and how many in lbs of torque is your drill?
