What would you do?

I see a lot of complaints about the slot limits. What I'm wondering is how would you handle it if it was your decision to make. You have to limit the harvest to a certain amount for the year. If the regulations you imposed were resulting in too large a harvest then what, would you tighten the regs or just wait til the quota was reached and then close fishing? I'm curious as to what regulations people think they can live with and still limit the harvest to the yearly quota.

Unfortunately, there are no regulations that will please the masses at this time. You can send Jesse 10 million postcards, have a weekly "townhall" meeting with state representatives, guides, resort owners, outdoor writers, Mille Lacs Advisory board, and President Bush himself, but the truth is nothing will change until this winter when the DNR changes the regs back to 16 to 20 inches for winter fishing. You heard it here first.

As I read some of these posts, Im not sure what to think. Ive only fished the pond a couple of times with limited success. But the fish that were caught were nice specimens. I still am in awe as to what some of these people have on there minds, it makes me wonder...... I dont know what to think. Maybe we are all messed up in the head?..... Who knows?.... If I knew the answer I would gladly fill all of you in.

dont blow up your reels!!!!!

Ybone,
Slots are the management tool of choice. The $2.00 question is, Are the slots based on biology? I think, what we're seeing on Mille Lacs is something other than good biological management.

      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.
