Sorry to hear that, hope all is well. Today was an ok day, caught a nice 14 inch small mouth, about 20 sunfish, and about 20 infant baby perch. Lost my line once to something nice, but not sure what... I was amazed, the roads that were plowed out there, If I'd known they were that good, I'd brought my big clam 6 X 8. My wife brought out my oldest daughter after lunch and she fished with me till 1730 hours (end). She caught more fish than I did. She loved it and wants to go again. My fish house needs to be defrosted now, snow and ice everywhere, scared to open it. Hope everything works out for you guys....

Always nice to get the kids out. It really makes it a

great day no matter how the catchin' is. Although it does

help to ice a few.

Couldn't have asked for a better day on the ice---sunny and not much wind. The road was great getting out there. All things considered I think I did ok---3 bass-nice 17 incher and about 12 sunnies. Just kept the sunnies and let the bass go for another day. Going to be a good fish supper in the future. It was nice to put a face with the site names too

After some scouting and moving around, Fisherdog and I found a spot that was producing bluegills. We caught a a couple dozen gills a piece, a few hammer handles, and of course monster 3" perch. Still could not find the elusive crappie bite, but we might have left too early. Left the ice after 1730.

Nice seeing everyone out there today. We'll have to do this again sometime, but maybe a different lake like Lida.

I didn't catch anything worth mentioning but it was still a great day on the ice. Thanks to JP and Peter for letting me tag along with them..and for Peter drilling my holes or letting me use his auger. I was only able to locate tiny perch and that was about it. It was nice meeting some new faces and nice to see old friends...even if they are only internet friends..right JP?

First stop of the Day

Dairyman, that bass you caught was a nice one. Thanks for assisting in photographic memory you helped capture for me when I caught mine. That was pretty neat, back to back catches.

Unbelievable perch on this lake, after catching them, I changed their diapers and sent them back down to their crib. I wonder if their parents knew they were having contact with strangers.

It was nice meeting you today and I'll prob see you somewhere on a lake.

Would like to hook up with some like minded fishin...hunting guys and make a few friends up here to fish hunt and share an adult beverage with.

Finallly got around to this. Had a great time up on Lizzie Saturday. Fishing was hit or miss, but we still managed to find a nice variety. We caught Walleye, Whitefish, Sunnies and a whole lot of 5-7in Perch. Seen some nice Bass caught also. Moved to a different lake after lunch to chase some pannies.

All in all we had a lot of fun, sunny out with nice roads thanks to a few of the good guys up there! Thanks. Also, thanks to Deadhead, FisherDog and the rest that got this GTG going!

A few pics from Saturday...

Glen - How did you do in the afternoon? My phone quit working or I would have called you to come over to my location. I set up on my spot on the spot and caught 143 bluegils in the afternoon and kept a half dozen for the frying pan.

We did pretty good. My daughter and I kept 8 nice fish and my buddy and his son kept 15. Some were 9in Bulls and the rest between7-8 inchers. It was good meeting you on Lizzie, we'll be back up there in the spring looking for the crappies. I still have your # so I can give you a shout when we plan on going.

Thanks to those that came, it was a good time. The fishing was tough as we tried to find fish in other than community spots but eventually landed on the north end and got into some decent gills. Couldn't find the crappies, and I know there are some nice ones in there. Maybe we can put together another gathering on a different lake later in the season.

Hey-----sounds like a good idea----I'm up for that---Saturday was probably the best day of ice fishing for me so far this year and the weather really co-operated too. Sunny and not much wind

Dairyman, nice to hear from ya. I was gonna go out on Monday, but the weather guys said "blizzard" so I made other plans. I woke up late on Monday, and nothing. So another day wasted that I'll never get back. Looking to get out maybe a couple of days on Sun, Mon, Tues, or Wed. Those are my days off. Not sure where yet, i'd like to try lizzie again, there is a ton of fish in there, not to mention great looking roads. less ice out there than there is on city streets of Moorhead, j/k. Temps look better later this week mid teens to lower 20's, too bad i'm working. At these current temps my portable will loose all the windows, they crack so easy at these low temps. Good luck if you head 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.  
    • leech~~
      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.
    • bluewater2
      Thank you  
    • leech~~
      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.

      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.
