D-Rock in New Brighton (or is it Shoreview) should have all the parts you need. That's where I pick up parts when I need them... and boy do I need them!

Good Luck!

We did about the same as most trips... enough crappies to keep it interesting (we even through a couple 11-12'ers back!), with plenty of walleyes caught and we even got a couple respectable perch... had a ball with all my good buddies and I even played Johnny on the stereo WAY TOO LOUD Saturday night! grin.gif

I will be back the the 24th and March 3rd for sure... (along with some other days the wife doesn't know about yet!)

Good Luck!

Ken

that reply conflicts with what you were telling me 2 weeks ago when you were re drilling holes. i guess you pry didn't need parts from jiffy for what you did to fix your auger, just a little know-how wink.gif anyway thanks for the info guys. i picked up the auger 2night brought it into the shop to do a little evaluation and had it runnin in less than a minute. i brought it home to show my wife the purchase i was so proud of, but she did not think it was a very good valentine's day present grin.gif i'm still talking like i was suckin on a helium balloon shocked.gif

No it is a Jiffy that has never been loved, held or even had its own gas cap vent...but it has drilled a few thousand holes.

That would be my auger. I bet I have one of the few modified augers in the state. It punches those 10" hole pretty quick, never bogs down just slams your hand into the wall or spins you in a circle. Those parts I had to get through a small engine guy along with the piston and head, not much stock about that power head.

I bought it and borrowed it out then it came back without mix gas and a cooked engine...so I had time on my hands and knew a good small engine guy and we increased the bore and compression along with a carb to match that is pretty wild. Didn't you notice it has when heck of a bark when it digs in?

Yeah, I noticed it. I just thought it was the new 3HP one Jiffy put out. I haven't seen one of those in action. Was that originally a 2hp or 3 hp?

Was a 3hp, now it is ice eating SOB power. Trouble is it gets hot drilling out the big houses with 12+ holes.

I think that is what I am going to buy next year. I keep telling people I want to try something different than what I am using now. I said the same thing for my flasher, it only took me 3 years to finally switch over and I am glad I did. Maybe I wont wait so long with the auger.

That one does stink the place up. Buddy is using one of the new four stroke jobs, no smoke,ice chips, stink or noise. Slower then a turtle taking a nap but clean.

      I recommend considering other lakes.  URL by the 4th is nearly void of walleye.  8 years or so ago, we did a two-family trip and only caught fresh water drum.  Star Trib Article

      I was honored to be part of the "Veterans on Lake Superior" trip again this year. Channel six did a nice story about the Veterans. They were a great group out on the water.   http://www.kbjr6.com/video?clipId=13445592&autostart=true

      Hi Cliff -   Thanks for the update on the hatch.  Is this usually a bust for 2 weeks once the big hatches start?  Will be up the 30th-9th, but still excited since its the first time staying for a full week at the in-laws cabin.  Hoping to provide a few updates on the West Side through the week.

      Thanks for the info.  I searched before and after this thread for any old threads on this topic.  I got nothing before and this thread is the only one that pops up after.  I will keep looking online or stop at one of the big box stores.    Tight lines.

      J-Roy,  I use UL rod and 4 lb a lot when throwing jigs. I have found that the lighter the jig head, the more fish bite and the more you hook. Wind will mess up using light jigs though. When fishing heavy jigs, cranks, top water or spoons, I use heavier line and rod. If fishing weeds need heavy line as well.   Hook ups/bites is much higher with lite jigs. I missed about 50% of hits yesterday using 1/2 oz head. Landed about 90% of hits a few days ago when using 1/8 oz head. Tough to fish 1/8 oz on even 8 lb line so I stick with 4 lb .

      We've got the old Lakemaster chip in our Lowrance 10" unit (circa 2008-ish, I think).  The Lowrance is the generation before the HDS, but I forget the exact model.  Since getting that Lakemaster chip, Lakemaster was bought by Humminbird and their chips are now only compatible with Humminbird  units.  You might be able to find a used chip somewhere, but be sure it's from before the Humminbird acquisition.   Navionics is the only other option for Lowrance that I know of. Regardless, there have been several 1-foot soundings done in the recent past, so be sure that whatever you get has that level of detail and you should be satisfied.   There are several old threads on GPS chips for LOTW...use the search box at the upper right of your browser and type in "LOTW chip" (without the quotes).
