Guest

Hey jigglestik I read about your auger
flying out of your truck I have one thats right up there with that Monday night
My buddy and I were on our way home from
red with my truck a snowmobile traier
with our six wheelers on it we had just stopped at M&H gas station in Grand Rapids
and checked straps and everything out
and proceded on our way home down the
river road really rough this time of year
got about ten miles and were BSing &
whatever when I feel this thump
& bump!! but there was no Bump there I
looks in the rearview mirror and I see his headlight pointing up in the air and then
down and it swerving down the road behind
us I almost threw up right then and there
so I turn around go back a ways and there its sitting up in someones front yard
ON ITS WHEELS!!! It missed two road signs
by about six inches each a telephone line
box and came to stop about two feet from
a light pole! WHAT LUCK!!!
If it would have been mine it would be in a
hundred pieces right now
WOW what a trip Well anyhow the ****
strap broke I'm getting heavier ones
for mine next time just thoght I'd let
you know youre not the only one this good stuff happens to RR

hey,that would have sucked. i have to confess though the auger after all that bouncing and tumbling at about 50 miles per hour, handled it pretty well. i just had to bounce on the extension a couple times to get rid of the built in shooks shake affect. she fired rite up and never missed a beat. how much did your little escapade cost? brake levers, handle bars,fenders, rims, axels can get kinda spendy. i used to haul bikes around back when they made the good straps, and i still doubled them up. now days its 3-4-5 straps per machine and making sure it's in gear, and setting the parking brake.that's just on the auger. can't be to careful.see ya on the ice---jigglestick---

At least you noticed it gone. I once saw a guy lose his ATV and didn't notice for 20 miles. smile.gif

I lost mine on the intersection behind the mall on 38. slid out on the tounge of the trailer and dented the S#$% outa my tailgate. i feel lucky tho, it didn't come off on the corners by McKinney lake. or up on 38. dont know how long i had gone with that broken strap. but at least it was some excitement on a boring day.

Kelly , now "RoadKill" had spied some sunglasses in the road. It is in his nature to recover those items that others discard. Being the spry and nimble treasure hunter that he is,, he mearly slid of the back of the machine without me noticing!!! smile.gif( and we were going about 40 mph) He barely even made a dust cloud!!( of course we were on the pavement)!!!! wink.gif

      Welcome TheEyesofanAngler! A ton of good bass lakes around the area.  For numbers of 2 to 4 lb bass, the eastern Todd County lakes near Burtrum and NW Morrison county are hard to beat as well.
    • Wanderer
      Good job guys!
    • YellowFinRed
      Have only been out a couple of times now but did get a 5.5 lb walleye my first 10 minutes out in 16 feet of water. Lots of fish in the 16-20 feet range. No jumping in the boat but catching fish on the mid lake areas. I'll be darned if I'll sit under a bridge with other boats when you can catch fish out on the lake without others boaters around.
    • Gillraker
      Any reports from Buffalo?  I would imagine that they are doing OK right out in front of the marina/beach.  Anybody?
    • DonkeyHodey
      agree with gimruis.  look to the river. Your chances of catching a 3# bass or better are exponentially better on the river.  (There's a reason SC/mississippi was chosen for the Gov's opener last year--the Mississippi around here is really a world class smallmouth fishery.)  (most river rats will tell you that you can essentially catch smallies any time of year and often as by-catch while targeting other species.)  Below the SC dam is pretty much catch and release only (all 12-20 inchers must be released) but it's quite loaded with big smallies! (and lots of good shore areas on public land)  Just be prepared to lose a few lures on snags... Frankly, If you want to stick to lakes, I think you can pretty much pick a lake in a 30 mile radius...--most produce bass in good quantity, it's just years may vary in terms of sizes.  Clearwater is good.  Consider Bass lake adjacent to it.  (...it's not just a clever name.)
    • Wanderer
      Haha!  Based on our conversation at the truck I’m going to edit that comment a teeny bit!  Cuz I know both of us had a workout.  I was still sore yesterday but it was a good sore. 😎
    • gimruis
      I like Clearwater too.  I haven't fished in in a couple years now but I used to and we caught a lot of fish out there.  The one negative was all the competition - there seemed to be a tournament almost every weekend. Another overlooked place to target smallmouth: RIVERS.  The Sauk River and the Mississippi between St Cloud and Elk River is plum full of bass and receives minimal fishing pressure (its just my opinion but rivers in general are very under fished here in MN).
    • Stephen L Johnston Jr.
      Thanks for the share Fitz! I noticed you guys had a couple of nice ones on saturdays event, i was curious how thatcame about. Congratulations on the crazy weekend!

      I have an STP frog cutter so I make my own.  
    • Surface Tension
      The torque tab counters the pull caused by the rotation of the prop.   Trimming the outboard in or out(up & down) can make a pull show up or go away.   Your Merc uses an allen wrench or a socket and extension to reach the bolt to loosen the torque tab.  Merc uses a right hand rotation.  If the bow wants to turn right by itself you would move the torque tab towards to the center.
