Anyone going to the Metro Darkhouse Assoc banquet tomorrow?

Just wondering if any FM'ers will be there.

I might be. I'm still trying to decide between trying for crappies in the evening or going to the banquet. It's supposed to be another beautiful day tomorrow, but.... the banquet would be fun too.

I had a real good time. I could not believe all of the nice prizes that were given away. It was awesome!

I got to meet Merk so that was nice.

MDAA recognized Merk and his mother for all of the effort they put into the organization. It was real nice and they are very deserving of it.

By the way. I was not as lucky as some. I ended up with a bottle of fancy mustard for a prize. grin

Kudos to Merk and his mother. The MDAA is lucky to have hard working volunteers like them. Fishcarver deserves thanks too. He came to town for the banquet and volunteered to sell raffle tickets.

I had a good time too. It was good to talk with Merk and Fishcarver. I also meet Cheeser and got to hear about his Montana trips, which sound cool. Cheeser was another volunteer. He sold tickets for the deer rifle board. There were a lot of great prizes and auction items. I won $75 cash and some Taco Bell gift cards so my evening was free. I enjoyed listening to the speakers, including Sen. Bob Lessard.

MJ, I wish I had meet you. I think we speared the same lake for part of last winter. It would have been fun to compare notes.

      my dad grew up in The Pas, my grand parents owned the avenue hotel and they had a place on Clearwater. Summers we would go up and fish and ski and such. Lots of good memories, other than the horseflies (Bulldogs). My experience was always it really didn't matter what you used, for lakers as long as it was shiny it got hit. Our technique was pretty simple, drop it to the bottom and reel is up fast. they hit hard on the way up and its clear like superior so you can see them a long way down if you have good ice. The river right out of town is good for char too.

      Yeah, ok, I'm using the 8. My drill also overheated after punching 5-6 holes in quick succession. Thanks for the responses... sorry for hijacking the thread

      So I just came back from Lake Winnipeg, and the 3 feet of ice they have there and found my auger lacking. I gave up the gas auger years ago to switch to the clam plate and drill. Around here, even Bemidji where I fish the most, I have never had a problem with getting through the ice. Lake Winnipeg is a different story. Anyway, I have a 6 inch bit now, and when with drilling a couple holes side by side to deal with the big fish but thinking back to my old 10 inch strikemaster I was almost willing to deal with all the issues I had with it to have some space to wrangle a fish. Soooo, im looking at going with an 8 inch bit, with the Milwaukee and the clam plate. I know that clam had a gearbox in the past that would help with that but seems they no longer offer it. will I tear up my drill with the bigger auger? I have two 9 amp batteries  and double the torque now too so I'm figuring a few  extra holes compared to the five amps and 650inc pounds I had for the previous drill setup. Suggestions? thoughts? other than getting a gas auger, cuz that isn't happening.

      That would make a difference now wouldn't it?  Oops my mistake I have a 6 inch just got done fishing today with 5 amp battery I got 27 holes at 19 inches of ice. I noticed the drill seemed warm after drilling 5-6 in a row but no problems. I don't have a gas auger any more but I see what the guys are saying about a power auger.

      Thank you.

      If you want to get in there by snow mobile or walking over, Wolf Lake is worth a try.

      Thanks all. FYI I'm located on Frazer Bay on Vermilion. Give a shout out if/when you may be on the water up there. I may give the Pike River Flowage a try tomorrow or Saturday. I'll provide a report if I go. Thanks again.
