D-Man-

Are you coming back to the cities afterwards? I am up for the day for a work fishing tourney 7am - 5pm. I would consider staying if I knew I had a ride home? Let me know.

By the way the launch we went on before the 4th of July was a blast. 9 people, 65 fish, in 4 hours. My 85 year old grandpa caught a 28". It was so fun to watch him real in that beast....

D-man,

Thanks for the heads up on this.... unfortunately I've got to work early on Monday, and can't get off with this late of a notice. It would be a blast though. Next time I'll make it. Good luck to you all, I'm sure you'll do great!!

Good Luck,
Rusty

D-man,

Of course I remember Mike J. It has been too long since I have seen him. Last time he was working at Gander over in Plymouth, three maybe four years ago. I think he is still with Gander? You remember Jeff P, he has some sort of close ties with Mike J, and we talked about him 2 weeks ago when we made a Mille Lacs run. Anyway, enjoy the lake!

PS Remember the Pewee Blaine Hockey Tournament? I was one of two kids on the ice with a stupid green helmet. That didnt stop me from scoring the winning goal in the third place game. Those were the days!

Hey Beefie,

Whatever you do, don't get too close to that launch, and whatever you do, don't drop a buoy next to it or they'll anchor on top of it, right? grin.gif (hah! hah!)

Sorry but your "I'll just go follow the launch in my own boat" comment made my mind go straight back to the "Buoy Hunters" thread(s) - couldn't resist.

Have fun guys and leave a fish or two for me. Oh wait, guess you'll have to leave 'em all - they probably won't be in the slot!

      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!  😣
    • 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.
    • papadarv
      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.
