4 posts in this topic

I'm just wondering how much longer it's gonna be before i start seeing some ice shacks up by eigth street in trf. I'm haven't did much ice fishing before and am looking for some pointers from the locals as to where the best place to set up is.

A couple of young fellers got chased off the river the other day. The sheriff and city police came and said that they had been getting complaints.

I know of some people who been skating down there. Said there was a good 4".

I have been on the ice since Thanksgiving and there is a good 3-4 inches. The Sheriff did kick everyone off the ice today. I was able to fish for an hour and saw one guy pick off a nice eye. I did not see anything on the vex.

      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.
