I have a stove/oven in my house, CO's have never said a word, don't know what the difference would be. I don't know for sure, but I thought they made it legal to clean and eat fish on the ice this year.

My only thought would be they are trying to prevent people from dumping the coals on the ice. I've been out there before and seen trash like that...which is disheartening. I haven't heard any new rules about this though.

Been fishing LOW for about 20 years I have never heard anything about not being able to have a grill on the ice.

I've not heard anything ,but he was asking tonight.

I'm looking for laws.He has a gas grill to do steaks.

He was told last year he was asking for trouble by the locals.

Sure they were'nt 'terrorists' posing as locals? !!

Never heard of such and I've been around a while. I think I've even been checked by warden on 16mile while the grill was going once too just a coupla years back!

Half the big perms on the pond are probably equiped with a grill of some type, at least the local huts!!

Going up to LOW for the first time this winter...can anyone confirm if cleaning legal fish and frying them up for a meal one night is legal? thanks!

O.K. I guess I jumped the gun. I just talked to the DNR and they said it was legal to clean and eat fish on a lake that has no slot limit. So L.O.W. is not legal yet. The lady I talked to said that this was going to change, but she did not know exactly when. She said there would be a bullitin put out when this happens, so hopefully it will happen yet this season. Sorry for getting your hopes up, I know mine were. We always spend at least 2 days sometimes 3 in my sleeper, it sure would be nice to eat a days catch while we are there.

I just finished listening to Curts radio program and the CO that he had as a guest definitley said YOU CAN clean and eat walleys as well as sauger on LOW. They are looking for the remains to be kept intact however for measurement purposes. LOW has a slot limit and this practice is now legal. Good luck and hang on. Bill

OK. The CO on the show had been to the seminar on the

new rules and regs for this season. If they are not

in effect yet, they will be soon. Sorry for any confusion

but nobody is out in sleeper houses yet. It is set to

start by the time we need it.

      Nice work Borch! Or maybe I should say Mrs. Borch?   Looks like I missed out.

      Keys to make the blade work well. *Sharp! *Cutting edge needs to line up to the Gullet of the opposite blade! *Add a .020 shim 1/8" wide between blade screw and cutting edge. Increases cut angle to same as K-Drill! I'm working on another set welding  1/4" piece of blade to the outside blade edge extending the blade 1/2" past auger flight making it a full 8" hole. Note how the K-drill blade extends 1/2" past the auger flights.

      I like your blade work as well. Two summers ago when I sold my hand auger at my garage I think I throw out about 4 sets of those old blades as well!  😣
    • papadarv
      Made the drill point out of a spade drill bit welded to a 3/8” 16 bolt/screw than cut & ground to shape the point. Drilled & tapped center of blade bracket. Tap slowly as that steel seem a grade or two above basic mild steel.

      Thank you

      That is some sweet work right there. I see these at garage sales all summer, may be I should start picking them up?  Looks like you added a drill point on the end of them as well. The adapters and the end point are key items on making these right.
    • papadarv
      I went a different route, got several vintage Mora 7 1/2" hand augers $10 to $15 each with the old hardened sweedish steel blades modified to replicate K-drill style blades #5. Went with clam plate 3/4" drive bit & M18 Fuel Mud Mixer worked ok on early ice #1. Wanted to try my DeWalt/Jiffy so converted to the 7/8" drive bit, didn't have the power to cut the agressive blade #2. Later ice in Wheelhouse, went with my Eskimo 43cc with a Walker 25' flex exhaust out the door, cut 32" ice in 27 seconds #3. Ran 4 1/2 holes to 1 of my buddies new green ION 8in. Made some adapters to put the 7/8" auger bits on my Clam Plate and Mud Mixer#4 for early ice this comming season.

      OUCH!!! 6 players down to injury in one game.  We were thin at O-line depth before, now we have "1st" line players having to play nearly an entire preseason game, because we dont have enough bodies!  This is going to be major issue going forward.   Overall, not a good showing offensively. Jacksonville is a very good defensive team, but we definitely need to be better.   Defense, look pretty good!  We need to complete turnover chances, at a better rate.     3rd RB race is going to be fun to watch.   Special teams, are kinda leaving me wondering.  Punt coverage is quite shaky.  Carlson is looking more like our guy, after Forbath missed a 41 yd fg.

      That's ok.  Was a good day on the water.  Took my wife out this afternoon and had a nice day fishing.
