Hoey

I find these actions unbelievable.  Some folks think our environment is their toilet and somebody else's problem.

winter fishing and summer fisher men are very different people.

I live near a public access and I will have to disagree with you. Pigs are pigs any time of the year.

That, unfortunately is true.  The difference in the winter is their junk gets on the lake and stays for more to see.

I would actually say summer fisherman are worse because they can toss stuff in the lake and not be as worried that a CO will see it because it goes to the bottom rather then sit on the ice. If you are caught leaving garbage on the ice they should throw your fishing license down the hole and never let you have another one.

The enforcement for littering crimes (and yes, it is a crime) is difficult. Once a perp has left the area, it is hard to pin it on someone. But I think if we all keep vigilant and utilize the technology we have (cell phone videos, pics, gps), we could start to mitigate it some. There should also be a zero-tolerance law that revokes fishing (and hunting) privileges for LIFE if the crime can be proven. These slobs need to be held accountable for fouling OUR resources...the world is not their dumping ground.

The COs should find a way to issue a citation if the is any garbage on the ice during a check, even if the sportsman say they will clean it up before they leave.

I’ve seen so much crap this year definetly the worst I’ve ever seen. All over small lakes big lakes you name it. Last weekend we found a spot that had many glass beer bottles, cigirates all over, wax worms and plastic containers, propane bottles and just garbage. Every lake I’ve been to it’s been like this all year. People have no respect for the environment these days also no respect for fellow anglers. Somthing needs to be done.

So sad to see some people just don't have the respect for are lands and water and total environment Run across this stuff all the time while hunting and fishing. I cant even tell you how many couches, matresses and Tv's ive came across on some back woods trails

      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.

      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.
