I just picked up the Aviation Weather forecast and it looks at this time anyway, subject to change, that the biggest amounts of snow will be south of the LOW area. From Bemidji eastward and down through central Minnesota. They are forecasting 4-8" in the St Cloud area, and only 2-3" in Mpls. Sure glad I put a blade on my ATV last week, now I can sit back and just push. Bill

late night

They are saying up to 8 inches for Brainerd. I hope they are wrong. I have spent more time shoveling my truck off the lake in the past two days than I care to admit.

Wildeskimo: I was off Wheelers Point over Pine right after Xmas and they had a lot of snow then. Adrians was doing a great job as always with the main ice road. Lots of wheel houses out there, coming and going. I would touch base with Adrians if you have any questions about the roads, as you also need to pick up the road pass from them. Can't help you with any of the other access points. Bill

It was slow compared to years past. Just didn't mark much on the vex. The fish that showed up were agressive, but it didn't appear to be the concentration of fish as in past years. It was still a good time though. The B/S was flying around the shack pretty good. Amazing how many jokes get told when you're passing time. I did put a report out Riverbend 26-28 if you're interested. Headed back a week from tomorrow, so we'll see how that goes. Bill

      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!  😣

      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.

      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.

      Bass, especially Smallmouth Bass.   Why are they my favorite? A symptom of growing up along the Mississippi I would imagine.  The walk along the shores of The Miss. have given me pretty much every species that swims here.  Nothing get me more excited than the acrobatics or the will of a Smallmouth.   In open water I just seem more drawn to grab the bass bag and chase bass more than other species.  Come fall, it will be tunnel vision, bronzebacks.
