yes i will. Usually I fish more up the north end by like hartford beach and we have done ok some years better than others. I trying to figure out what island they call goat island. Your going to go out and suffer through the nasty elements that big stone usually delivers on opener huh. Your daughter must be a trooper. Some of my buddies got ruined by this trip and won't come back out and they our in their upper twentys.

Ha! I am busy looking for a 55+ yr old to fish with so we could have a shot at the "Viagra" award! I wonder if they give out a plaque for that? Man, that would be coolest plaque ever to hang on the wall!

Um, pretty sure I don't wanna see that trophy. Go ahead a put it on your wall if you like. grin.gif

I may have to check serious into this one. I've never fished Big Stone before, but I'm surely wiling to give it a shot. What the heck, might as well be during a bragging rights trophy.

I should look for a campground around there and bring the RV. It's a bit of a haul from my house.

The wife is going to pass on this one, boilerguy, cuz that sounds a might bit chilly and sort of like work. I'm more of a 'lay around in the boat reading a book with a beer in one hand and ocasionally checking my bait while the sun beats down' kind of fisherman, er, person. You know that. wink.gif

      I would say gas augers are still getting better. For example my solo engine always starts never leaks and emissions are very very low. I don't think I burned a half gallon of gas the whole winter and I drilled maybe 500 holes max still not a lot but pretty good for only using a cup or so of fuel an outing. Not saying electrics are bad but for me I just can't pull my self away from the convince of gas. Every winter I think I do give more and more respect to cordless drill or electric set ups. Well then also with this last winter we had a goo full 24 inches of ice for maybe 3 weeks this it starting melting fast

      I like the electrics too but it will be a necessity for me to finally give up my gasser for good.  One tank on it can cut many, many holes.  Batteries are expensive so I don't plan on buying extras for those days I plan to explore.   I think it was mentioned on the forums before: With the mapping apps and gps we have available now, we probably all drill fewer holes over the season than we used to.  The problem I have though is I don't repeat locations many times over the winter. Heck, not even lakes that often.  I've been carrying the gas, electric and hand auger pretty much all winter.

      There are still the guys that argue up and down about electrics but they are getting fewer and fewer. They are all very strong people though,I wouldn't want get into a fight with anyone that drills 200 holes a day and carries around a 35# + auger
