I will be up there in two weeks to stay for 2 nights. It's good to know the night bite is picking up. Then again there was a full moon this weekend. Steady action with the walleyes; or was it one or two fish an hour?

We were just down the road from you in the garage door house. We ended up with a pail full of fish, but they would come 1 every hour or 2. The pail of fish contained a mix of everything. Walleye (12-14 of them / kept 6), Perch (6), Pike (4) & Crappie (1) came to visit. I know it sounds like a broken record, but the Minnow Station houses with Kelly & Jonny are the best. My Dad & I had a great time. Whoever plops down in the spot we were in, I hope you catch whatever was taking our green glow jigs. It was probably a big Pike, but we will never get to see for sure. I'd like the garage door house on our next trip please grin

I have some really cool pix of the full moon setting on Sat morning. The moon was the shape of a football due to the vision tricks Red Lake plays on anything on the horizon. The super hillmans highway was looking a bit strange on Sat also. I can e-mail them to anyone willing to post the pix. I've tried several times to put up pix, but for whatever reason it never works.

The only complaint I have is that I don't live closer.

Yes he is the one, good thing it was not one of Kelly or Jonny's houses! He said he was going to be GOOD this year, we will see. Is he in your house? No sleeping bags needed in my basement, but you better bring them for the fish houses.

I was up this past weekend for the first time ever on URL. It was a lot of fun. We stayed in a 5 man sleeper and we were the "slow" group.

We didn't do too bad. Probably caught around 30 walleyes, 1 crappie, 1 perch, and a 33-34" northern. No consistent bite or time. The only thing we noticed is that the fish did not respond to jigging at all. Every fish pulled out of the water was caught on a dead stick. The dead stick thing was a little disappointing, it's much more enjoyable when you can attack them with jiggin'.

Although, I had hoped for a better bite, I hope to get back up there again and I enjoyed the experience. Thanks for the hard work guys!

      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.
    • 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.
