Was up with Red Lake Remote Friday through Sunday. Fishing was tough when the fog was out on Friday. Caught 3 walleyes from 1:30pm to 6am Saturday morning. Once the fog lifted it was game on. Saturday we caught upwards of 35 walleyes, with rattle reels going off all night up until Sunday around 2-3am then the fog set back in and it was sllllloooow. A lot of the fish we over the slot mark, so it made fishing fun. We did end up with a 4 person limit leaving the lake. 

 

All in all a good trip. Ended up drilling 20-30 holes outside the sleeper and being successful with UV Green rattle baits. The fish would crush these, but you'd have to look for them outside of the house. Hot baits on dead sticks/rattle reels inside were plain red hooks w/ a glow bead, and a "banana shape" white/chartreuse jig.

No kidding! It seems odd looking back, but it's what we saw/noticed. Guessing it has something to do with sun in the murky water.

We were up the same weekend was a good time fishing was good. More perch showing up and keepers most averaged around 11 inches. Nice bonus fish ,we waited till Saturday night before we started to keep a few for limits. Kept a few short because we wanted to fish Sunday morning . The bite was even better Sunday morning it's been a great season on red again. Jigging rap and a plain red hook on the dead stick.

Hoyt, just an FYI, you can absolutely keep fishing for a species of fish once you've reduced your limit to possession.  Just have to immediately release all subsequent fish of that species caught.  The regs define immediate release as giving you enough time to measure, identify, and photograph the fish.

Most likely our last trip up this year unless we go up for crappies but i'm running out of weekends. We had another great trip this weekend the fish are so fat this year more than I remember in the past.  Got my old man out for a good walleye bite he had a blast and caught a ton of fish. One day they just attached the bait as it was coming down they would come up and smash. Next day you put in the bottom and not even see the lure on the vex bring up a tad and they would smack it. Fun and a lot of snow hitting yesterday when we left.

      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!  😣

      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.
