I have had strike master, jiffy stealth, and I bought a nils this year and it is hands down the best. Lighter, Faster and starts better.

I found all the information and have decided a NILS auger has moved in to the "NEED" catagory. I like the option for the shorter shaft for early ice and faster drilling and just buying an extension for it. Thanks guys

gunderson,

I would just buy the standard 48" inch shaft and then you are all set. Drill holes just as fast, doesn't add much weight, and I have never, ever needed an extension when fishing out of a portable on any lake including URL and LOW.

I drive a car and I don't know how well it would fit ( haven't measured it) It says 48 in auger + what for the head? That is why I am looking at the shorter shaft. I love to jump around a lot so this is another benefit.

The bite was pretty quiet by the time I got back there, hit it last night and ended up with 8 crappies that were 11-12 inches,fished for a couple hours, all the crappies were caught in a one hour time frame, then dead again, so I headed in, but most of the eve was slow, time to move again, I did notice the perch were in there heavier than normal so they may have chased the crappies out a little deeper. Enjoy that new auger.

      Sure. The good thing is if you have too many cocktails and fall off the dock you will not have to worry about drowning.  People are going to have a long walk to go swimming out of the Waskish beach. Hard to believe that 3 years ago the dock floated up off the support poles so we had to put in a few longer ones. The dock was right up to the predator guard below the wood duck houses.

      Hey would someone that lives close by the Hatchery let me know when they are stripping eggs this year? Shouldn't be too far off.

      Here are a few photos taken off of my dock which is straight across the Pike River from the Hatchery. Only a day or two more before it opens up here on the river! The second picture is looking toward the dam.

      Your Right! after clicking on the picture a couple times and zooming in you can see the big white head of the male hooded mergaser.

      According to the Army Corp of Engineers weather station here in Waskish we have had a grand total of  1.29 inches of precipitation so far in 2018.  When we were burning the grass of there was still about 30% snow cover. The flames were hitting 10 feet high.

      Nice to see there might actually be some ice melting up that way! jkrash, those are hooded mergansers though.   I might’ve called out my first woodie sighting this year as one of those too.  But nah!  I know what I saw had to be woodie! Haha! Seriously though, I’ve seen more, and more variety of ducks this spring than ever  in my life.  The late lake ice outs have made the river a diver Mecca.  I think I saw a few with Ely or bust signs on em too!  The bulk of woodies have been in the Little Falls area for about a week, some for a couple.  The hoodeds have been here for at least a month. They’re all coming though!
