Best opener I have ever had, I almost forgot there was fish like this in the metro area.

We got 9 northerns all together, nothing less than 6lbs, biggest was 12. Bunch of bass also, nothing huge. Found them very shallow in weeds, spinnerbaits and sucker minnows both worked.

The only monsters I see there are those hula hoops hanging from your ears!!

But seriously, those are some nice slimers.

Are you sure that lake is in the Metro area?? It is hard to imangine a Metro lake having no boats in the backgroud on opening weekend...

Was about 10 boats on the lake, but not in the area we were in. Not a very popular well known lake, borderline metro area. And by the way, the hoola hoops in the ears is my friend not me!

i didnt think my head was that disproportional to my body!!! now i feel bad. fish was 40" and extremely thick. we didnt weight it because i had read that hanging a large fish by its head can permanently damage the fish's spine or kill it. it hit the first cast of the trip with a jig and minnow in 18'. it isnt a metro pike, but it was in minnesota.

      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
