Hey glenn,

A buddy and I tried Pokegama on the east end this past Tuesday night and the ice had pulled away from shore. If a guy has waders you can still get on. Fishing was horrible with only 1 4" crappie, a whitefish, and some perch for our troubles. I haven't heard about any other lakes, but would assume that the ice has pulled away from shore on alot of them and you need waders to get out. You may want to give Fred's Bait a call here in D.R. and see what Bill has to say. My ice fishing season is over, time to chase bluegills at MP&L.

It was good meeting you a few weeks ago, we'll have to hook up and fish next winter.

Brian

      Those are quantom blades in that picture and they work great for reopening holes and I never had a problem with it being bad for the blades in fact that ring around the bit on the bottom is to help guide the blade when going through a preexisting hole

      Mine looks like that.  And it does reopen holes, and is sharp.  But, had read in past it was not good for the blade.  A friend indeed has attached a 10" Strikemaster, dual blade to his Eskimo so it does work.  His impressively cuts holes quickly, at angles, etc.  He spears so he does 5 holes side by side , 3 holes deep, then augers side ways to remove in between.  Works well.  Complete hole done, less scooping, in under 10 minutes.   Thanks for all the advice.  Could use something larger than 8" anyway, so may go to 10.  Also will redo back part by toy hauler door, under bunks to a 20" x 5' hole, covered and hinged of course.  May spear, but even if not I love watching the fish and various movements of bait, etc.   Again, thanks for being generous. Wahoo
