Was out of brandts this weekend as I have been the past four. You can drive out just about as far as you want. There are lots of people all the way out to four and five mile. Brandt has a bridge just out from the landing and there is one crack out by jordan hole with planks across. The perch bite is almost non-existent. I have fished all over the place at brandt and have caught only very few perch. The walleyes are still going though.

I have been fishing out of brants for the last to weekends and have done fair. I have been fishing out on Sloppy Joes. Last weekend I caught 18 nice eyes and to were in the slot. This weekend I went out with a buddy and we fished from fri. evening till monday morning and ended up with 17 eyes and some nice perch. The perch came from ottos reef and all but one of the walleyes were from sloppy. We drove to within 1 mile of the sliver flat but ran into a bad breaker that has a 2 foot gap of open water in it so we couldnt cross. But if you dont run into a bad breaker it seems as though you can go anywhere you want. 5 and 4 mile gravel are simple to get to they have roads marked but after that you have to find your own way.

      Thanks to Wanderer (Tracy) for extracting me from a sticky situation 🤦‍♂️. It was also nice to finally meet you in person!! I think you need to start a weekend towing business lol. I had a buddy of mine and his dad come out and check and make sure I was okay after you left. Fishing was pretty good I got 8 gills all around 8” and 1 crappie 9”. Dad came out and got 5 gills. We stayed till 6:15pm and I was able to make it off the lake no problem.

      Cliff and Byron are planning a Kids ice fishing day February 12. The event is out of Fortune bay Marina  9-1. The event is for Tower and Nett lake kids. I know Cliff is looking for a few helpers.

      Cuz that’s just me.  🙂  I just like tinkering and seeing what I can get away with - and learn about things.   Just got done with a fine hone stone and got out some small nicks I’m pretty sure I got from cutting dirty ice in ND.  I’ll find out tomorrow how I did.

      Like @eyeguy 54 says, Frank has been the go-to guy for members of this site for years.  He does it by mail and is in Saginaw, MN.   It’s interesting that you ask about re-shaping also.  I know Frank has the Nils jig and the drill blades are curved.  I was considering tuning up my own today before they get too dull but am concerned about maintaining the shape of the curve. Since I was a machinist in a former life, I’m still gonna try it.  Then maybe send to Frank. 😀
