To the guy who ripped me off

You and I know who you are and that you read this area of posts.

I waited several days to post this in hopes you hooked that full spare tank of gas you thieved from my boat onto your's.

The reason: that tank of gas was over two years old and hopefully has now laquered up every jet and nook and cranny of your Mercury! That's Karma, brother!

We also know who you are. You really aren't very smart. You left tracks that night right out of the private launch right in your direction.

You must've been drunker than usual because you also left behind another tell-tale sign of your identity, which just the authorities and I know about.

You also have the only other motor on this end of the lake that my tank will fit on.

You don't have to worry about justice finding you, I'm sure some already has and more will follow.

After all....that's your Karma. Just keep drinking to excess like the fool around here everyone knows you to be.

By the way, hows the Mercury running now????

Sorry to hear about your loss....sounds like he might be rewarded quite nicely though.

We had six gas tanks stolen from boats in our resort harbor one night this past June but it turned out to be neighborhood thugs/kids and the owner at least got the tanks back a couple weeks later.

H'mmmmm.........

Beer $5+ per gallon

Gas only $3+

Seems to me he ought to be more interested in stealing your beer?

Where is beer only 5 bucks a gallon? Let me guess beer for that cheap is not going to go down well but I am sure it will come up easy enough. Sorry about your gas tank being stolen get some bear traps and place them around your boat and use a case of beer for bait.

You are right Monster, which is why I used the +.

Maybe the state run stores are more, and for the good stuff, it is definitely more, but at a buck a can for 5 cans = 60 oz and 1/3 of another can = 4 oz which then equals a gallon. Ergo $5 + .33 = $5+.

When I have to start paying more than $24 per case at the store, I will start feeling sobriety coming on.

0r were you referring to buying beer at the ginjoint?

Don't want to question your math but 32oz to a quart, 4 quarts to a gal 128 oz.. soory but the price of your beer just doubled...it did sound good though! smirk.gifgrin.gif

On another note I just filled up a 5 gal can and forgot it on the island at the gas station, returned in 10 minutes and it was already gone. My fault got busy talking but it sure didn't take long for someone to claim it..

Bobby (and Monster),

I stand corrected. You know how it goes, "I'm wrong, but I'll defend myself to the death for the right to be wrong".

If I think 64oz = gal, its no wonder I can't hold my booze! My bad, and I'm sorry - its also no wonder I can't use the metric system!

Now, as to that can you lost, did you check inside the station's lost & found? As if........

well lets see 16 gallon keg costs about 65-75 bucks that would be under your 5 dollars a gallon. Kegs are the way to go for cheap beer. I will help ya out just so your right! Now think what a bar makes on a glass of tap beer hmmm dang!

Oh yeah, they make plenty.

In college, we had a keg going 24/7 for .25/glass on the honor system and there was always enough in the jar to replace the keg when it sputtered.

      Hi guys,   I'm driving up to fish the Alexandria area and would like pointers on which lakes would be best for quality fish.  I've read about darling and carlos but feel those might be to heavy pressured and possible to big of a lake for me.  Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

      Summer slipping away means Fall fishing though!

      Did you find most of those in the afternoon? We didn't do so well. Tried for eyes on various midlake humps for about an hour and then changed tactics to panfish for about 45 minutes before we had to leave. Found one decent size northern pike but that was it for us.    Enjoyed having the opportunity to meet you, Borch. Too bad we weren't able to spend more time. Maybe next time.🙂

      The tournament the girlfriend has been fishing ended Saturday night so we were able to take off early Friday and make it out for an evening bite and again Saturday morning.
      Friday night fishing was good but a lot of 6-7" gills but we did land a few 9.75" and 9.5" gills.  Really tough bite had to cover LOTS of water to find them.   Saturday morning the crappies moved in and were really aggressive but they were 6-8" with only a handful over 10". We landed a few more 9.5" but we had to cover miles of shoreline jigging trying to find them.  Boats next to us weren't even catching a blue gill it was a tough bite.  Very negative bite.   We left the water Saturday and was instantly approached by the game warden.  I was working on my trailer prior to loading the boat and he was asking the typical questions about fishing because he's seen my trailer very often at the access.  He was pleasantly surprised that we didn't keep a fish.  He said everyone has been keeping limit after limit and he's seeing the size drop from almost 9" average down to a group that morning had kept 7" for 4 limits.  Told him we kept 8 fish last Saturday for some meals and that was it in the 3 weeks we've been fishing up there, needless to say I think he was shocked and proud that people weren't just taking limit after limit home.   Tournament ended Saturday night at midnight for the girlfriend.  The app keeps track of everyone's best 10 fish and her length at the end of the tournament was 95.5" which puts her in first place. Second place is at 91.5" and third place 91.25" so unless something major happens and they don't like our pictures she should have the win!  It was interesting in the beginning to be excited for 8" gills then after we got 10 of them they jumped to 8.5" then to 9.0" then 9.25" then pushing for 9.5".  Was a lot of fun.  I believe she has 2-9.25" and 4-9.5" with remaining being 9.75".  The final 10 fish were all caught in Becker County on one lake and were let go to swim again.  I stress a lot catch and release and keeping only what you want or NEED for a meal but during this tournament we caught the same fish 4 times.  He is blind in his right eye, big beautiful blue gill and I caught him week ago Saturday and again Sunday and the girlfriend repeated me on Saturday and Sunday this weekend.  Each time he measure 9.25" so we either caught the same fish 4 times or we caught 4 different gills all the same length in the same area of the lake.   All fish were also caught on Panfish Pirate 5 mm lead jig in Lipstick color with either Push Up or Bubble Gum soft plastic Kraken.  We are waiting for an official announcement from the organizers that these scores are official and I'll report back at that time!

      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.
