D-Rock in New Brighton (or is it Shoreview) should have all the parts you need. That's where I pick up parts when I need them... and boy do I need them!

Good Luck!

We did about the same as most trips... enough crappies to keep it interesting (we even through a couple 11-12'ers back!), with plenty of walleyes caught and we even got a couple respectable perch... had a ball with all my good buddies and I even played Johnny on the stereo WAY TOO LOUD Saturday night! grin.gif

I will be back the the 24th and March 3rd for sure... (along with some other days the wife doesn't know about yet!)

Good Luck!

Ken

that reply conflicts with what you were telling me 2 weeks ago when you were re drilling holes. i guess you pry didn't need parts from jiffy for what you did to fix your auger, just a little know-how wink.gif anyway thanks for the info guys. i picked up the auger 2night brought it into the shop to do a little evaluation and had it runnin in less than a minute. i brought it home to show my wife the purchase i was so proud of, but she did not think it was a very good valentine's day present grin.gif i'm still talking like i was suckin on a helium balloon shocked.gif

No it is a Jiffy that has never been loved, held or even had its own gas cap vent...but it has drilled a few thousand holes.

That would be my auger. I bet I have one of the few modified augers in the state. It punches those 10" hole pretty quick, never bogs down just slams your hand into the wall or spins you in a circle. Those parts I had to get through a small engine guy along with the piston and head, not much stock about that power head.

I bought it and borrowed it out then it came back without mix gas and a cooked engine...so I had time on my hands and knew a good small engine guy and we increased the bore and compression along with a carb to match that is pretty wild. Didn't you notice it has when heck of a bark when it digs in?

Yeah, I noticed it. I just thought it was the new 3HP one Jiffy put out. I haven't seen one of those in action. Was that originally a 2hp or 3 hp?

Was a 3hp, now it is ice eating SOB power. Trouble is it gets hot drilling out the big houses with 12+ holes.

I think that is what I am going to buy next year. I keep telling people I want to try something different than what I am using now. I said the same thing for my flasher, it only took me 3 years to finally switch over and I am glad I did. Maybe I wont wait so long with the auger.

That one does stink the place up. Buddy is using one of the new four stroke jobs, no smoke,ice chips, stink or noise. Slower then a turtle taking a nap but clean.

      The stearms in the arrowhead are small very small I would recommend a 6 foot or short rod for most streams as you will be pitching your bait out. They are also over grown with brush wading these streams is a challenge. You will be fishing for mostly brook trout above the first posted boundary FYI it’s normally a large water fall but not always. Also the first week of June there will not be much from the lake to the first posted boundary anyways. Remember there special regs below the first posted boundary and the above the first posted boundary.  If you want to use your fly rod I would hit the small trout lakes in the area. A split shot and small chunk of crawler is my go to bait for Brookies. There are a few streams with some browns and rainbows but very few. If you are fly fishing look at Thompson lake by  devilstrack lake it’s catch and release. Mink lake, kimball lake are also good.

      Growing up in South Dakota I did quite a bit of fishing in the black hills for browns and rainbows, most of that fishing was best accomplished with a long pole and just drifting my bait down the stream if you can read the eddies and slacks in the water you should do fine.  Of course I'm assuming they bite the same up north as they do out west.  It was a kick when I went  back out there 2 years ago and on Sunday morning fished the little 6 ft wide stream running behind the campground, all the other campers were amazed that I would pull out a fish about every 20-30 ft no monsters but plenty of little beauties at 7-10 inches. If the water is clean and the fish are there you just gotta find out what they are eating at that time of year.  Hopefully this helps and if I'm wrong some of the guys with Minnesota experience will pipe up.

      I do a bit of fishing from the coon rapids dam on down to 694 and I usually bring 2 rods because I lose at least one lure to the rocks. Bear that in mind and also realize that there are nice smallies, eyes and cats in that stretch of river. I also had over 3 feet of pike eat my stink bait I had out for channel cats. If I didn't have a circle hook on it would have been a nice pic to share. Good luck and hope to hear of some good luck.

      It would take a lot of code to make multiple windows tiling the screen work, would be my guess, and would create few additional sales so isn't worth the expenses.    Just pick up an inexpensive 5 to 7 inch unit and use it for the map.   
    • Wanderer
      You look like the Phantom Fisherman - except the toes.  Or maybe the River Detective  🕵️‍♂️ Gotta love those good runs in short times!   
    • Bryan P
      Awesome Eyeguy! That is a good run of smallies there. I like your spot, that was my favorite fishing stretch for them when I lived in St cloud. Mississippi is such a great smallie fishery. Im blessed to live right next to it too. Now lets get the current to go down some!

      I LOVE SMALLIES !  LOL  I am blessed to live close to so much fun.

      Spent a couple hours on Elysian this afternoon.  Drove around some shallow areas on the south east end of the lake with the trolling motor and only saw carp. Water is still unusually clear for this lake, at any time of the year, and 79 degrees near shore. May be a great opportunity for a bow fisherman, even in the daylight. Tried soaking minnows in a hole on the north end with no luck.

      My choice would be Namakan, but honestly that’s mostly based on emotion. It’s where my dad and I fished the most while up there. I also think it’s prettier than Kab.  I’ve never been on Sand Point or Crane. Just my two cents. I’ll be up there one week from today. Staying on the Ash River if anyone would care to enjoy a cold one first round is on my buddy. 😁
