Little Late now, but for you and others, I was in 27 fow adjacent to deeper water and was happy with the results. Nothing world class but worth the trip out.

Best time of day was 2-5pm, but I had to be back at the cabin by 6:30 so didn't fish much in the dark

...My sucess...almost drilled one hole and my auger throttle stuck, my hand then slipped, and off to the races... I watched my auger spin, at top speed, for about a minute and then fall apart... I then proceeded to load up the truck and leave... a day that will never be forgot but wished it could.... lol

drifter, we've all been there, if you haven't you aren't outdoors enough. Two years ago, my hose for my cooker heater was apparantly too close to the heater, I was tending a tip up and when I turned around I noticed an orange glow in my portable, I put the fire out and continued on with fishing. I was then in the portable and the rubber that had melted to the heater eventually started on fire again with me in the house, I couldn't get the zipper of the house open in my panic to get out...I dumped the minnow bucket water on the heater and then packed up and left, happy to be alive.

It's gettin tuff to get through the ericson landing as there is a ice ridge thats slowly closing off the landing. I'll likely use the marina access from here on out.

Now that's funny... at least you got a couple holes...

Reminds me of a an incident a couple years ago..

We were up by Ely Laker fishing and we were on a ledge rock drop off and my buddy figured he was going to get a little closer to the drop off... you know what's next... He got a little to close and my nice new blades were used in an attempt to drill through a rock... needless to say the holes we had drilled were the only ones we were going to have all day... NOTE: make sure to bring the extra blades with next time....
