I have been having good luck on prior, Been ok with water levels, taking it kind of slow with the speed. Good luck getting a spot at the launch though.

just remember,the early bird catches the worm..then he gives it to me,and i put it on a jig like a tube bait and i get sunpikes and crappulations.that is if you want a parkin spot,get there early enuf,altho the winds and rain may deter some anglists this weekend.and seriosly,try crawler chunks on jighead(i prefer chartuese)run them up the hook and snag the piece on the keeper part of the jighead.i go as far as finding heads with a pronounced keeper and file it a bit so its less of a nub and more of a point.you don't need any crawler extending past the bend really,and can spin the chunk around for better grip after a bite or two and use the same piece a few fishes worth.or reverse the chunk for fresh flesh to snag it.if it's not sitting right,like a tube bait,and it rides down the hook,you're basically wasting your time,so if you get bit and don't hook up,reel in and rehook.craps and suns love it.and remember,sharp hooks catch mo' flishes..and look for the warmest water....

Just got off of Prior. Found some nicer fish. 10-12 sunnies 9" long and a bunch of crappies 10" long. There still in there. Nice to see some decent pannies coming around. No live bait, jigheads, tubes, and twisters worked nice and slow. Good luck this weekend. Might be out if the weather cooperates.

      I haven't but I'very heard that there have different versions of the clam adapter and Milwaukee has made some changes as well in their design to deal with higher torque ratings.  Give Clam a call with you drill mod4l number and I'm sure they'll be able to help you out with which is the correct for your drill.

      2/26/17   With ice conditions deteriorating, we hit the Crow River for the second weekend in a row. Casting 1/8 ounce VMC Mooneye Jigs tipped with 3" Berkley Power Grubs in orange and chartreuse combinations, we caught walleyes up to 18" and pike up to 31" as well as a couple carp. Remember, pike and walleyes, as well as bass, are closed in MN now except on most navigable rivers. Also, your fishing license expires tomorrow. I will be giving a seminar at the Home and Sport Show at the McLeod County Fairgrounds on Saturday, 3/4 at 11 am. Will be presenting about walleye fishing on area lakes, but happy to answer questions and talk about anything fishing. Stop in and say hi. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Thats what I'm thinking its what 25-30 years old and stating to not run as good as it used to so putting money into probably won't be worth it vs just buying a whole new auger.
