Doop

cancelled

5 posts in this topic

I had been planning a trip with 6 of my closest friends to LOTW.

We were scheduled to be up there March 7-12th. Tip up fishing for big jacks.

My step-dad has had cancer for a very long time and in the past 5 days, the cancer has taken over his body. Hospice will be coming in tomorrow to make him as comfortable as possible.

He and my mom live in Iowa and I'm stuck down here in Texas. That makes it so much harder.

So to all of you on the ice....enjoy yourself and good luck!

Thanks Fisky for the help you gave!

Sorry to hear of this Doop, I will do my best to catch a few in your honor. I will be up there March 13th - 17th.

I feel what you are going through. We had to bury my father in-law today. I have lived next door to him for the last 13 years of my life and he too has battled cancer for the last 4 years. He passed this Tuesday evening with my wife and her mother at his side. Hospice has to be one of the most incredible services in the world. What wonderful people. You are in my thoughts and I hope your father can rest in peace.

Sorry to hear that as well. Went through that process with my mother-in-law about five years ago & a good friend a few years before that. It's a nasty disease that we're all impacted by in some way sooner or later. You & your family will be in our prayers.

      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.
