Are you from Cook? I think you guys lived just down the road from us. We lived by the Alango school? I doubt you know me but you probably know my brother and sister. Matt and Sarah Lohry.

right. I've been watching those videos you put on there. pretty cool. I want to try taking my boat out there this year around st peter. any danger spots I need to look for? I know nothing about the minnesota river. I figured i wouldn't get into to much trouble in a 14 foot boat though.

St. Peter has it's danger zones, especially during low water. No matter how big or small the boat, when that lower unit smacks a sunken log, your in trouble wink.gif

Reading the river is the biggest thing. When you first go out, go upstream so you can float back if needed. Stay in the middle on straight stretches and follow the outside on the bends. If during you path something gets in your way......turn. grin.gif

D4, I fished this stretch during high and low water with 16'6' boat last couple years. Not too bad, watch for obvious obstructions and remember to keep to the outside bends where it will be deeper. Sometimes you might think it is too close to shore but if its cutbanks you might only be 3 feet from shore but 14'-15' deep. Good luck.

      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
