Last weekend

2 posts in this topic

We were out of McQuoids last weekend. Nothing but little perch. Stayed in a house right off the point. Our house was in about 19ft, the houses around us were between 22 and 14ft. Moved to 10ft one night with no luck. Also moved further out, but still somewhat near their roads in 15 and 19ft during the day and didn't catch a thing. Never saw a walleye on the camera, but the first 10 minutes saw a decent sized pike swim by.

I fished Sunday a little south of Eddy's and a little north of Rocky Reef in about 20-22 ft. of water. Caught nothing but tiny perch all day until about 4:45...then the Vex went blank for 5 minutes, then lit up again for 5 minutes, and I managed to get 2 hefty perch and missed one. Then it was done for the next hour or so until I packed up. I could see them down there, but no more biters.

      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.
