Hey guys,

just wanted to share a couple pictures. The smiles say it all! lol Both fish were a personal best! Jay is holding the top fish and his was 10 pounds. Matt's was 7 pounds. Both fish were VERY healthy and returned to pull hard another day!

Thanks for the help Finn and Stfcatfish! You guys are awesome. Definitely not a good idea to drive on the ice...but that meant hauling all of our stuff around....uhhhhhhhh. Definitely not as young as we used to be!!

Nice environmental fish shots, Doop. Thanks for sharing them! grin.gif

A bit easier to fit the whole fish in the pic when it's a horizontal hold (and easier on the fish). grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

Thanks Steve,

I appreciate the advice. I did know better than to hold the fish vertically. That got lost in the moment though...lol

Not a bad picture for a cell phone huh!? smile.gif

From what I could see Finn...I found myself looking over your way a lot as you yanked slimers from the ice! lol

When my buddy spoke to you I was marking fish after fish on the vexilar but nothing would bite. I was using an angel eye jr. with the head of a small smelt and nothing. It was a heck of a long drive but as you wrote...well worth the time and effort. Next up...LOTW in March!!

      I haven't but I'very heard that there have different versions of the clam adapter and Milwaukee has made some changes as well in their design to deal with higher torque ratings.  Give Clam a call with you drill mod4l number and I'm sure they'll be able to help you out with which is the correct for your drill.

      2/26/17   With ice conditions deteriorating, we hit the Crow River for the second weekend in a row. Casting 1/8 ounce VMC Mooneye Jigs tipped with 3" Berkley Power Grubs in orange and chartreuse combinations, we caught walleyes up to 18" and pike up to 31" as well as a couple carp. Remember, pike and walleyes, as well as bass, are closed in MN now except on most navigable rivers. Also, your fishing license expires tomorrow. I will be giving a seminar at the Home and Sport Show at the McLeod County Fairgrounds on Saturday, 3/4 at 11 am. Will be presenting about walleye fishing on area lakes, but happy to answer questions and talk about anything fishing. Stop in and say hi. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Thats what I'm thinking its what 25-30 years old and stating to not run as good as it used to so putting money into probably won't be worth it vs just buying a whole new auger.
