Guys,

I got asked to help for a week at Camp Kingsley with the Rome Cub Scouts. I guess one of the things I'll be doing is taking them fishing. That said, I've got to come up ith about 200 worms. I got short notice. I plan to call Morgan Bait to see if I can get any donated or a good price, since it's coming out of MY pocket. Any other ideas? It's a week from Monday. All the little shops I knew of are long gone. Thanks in advance.

Hope for rain and go Old School and pick them? I'd be real surprised if a store didnt cut a big deal on the worms seeing its for such a good cause. Try Gander? Maybe a place like a local Elks club or Moose could be hit up for a donation? I bartended at a Elks club and they rarely said no to any good cause...

You're man the Chris...does your elbow hurt now from patting yourself on the back laugh

Kidding...It's for one of the best causes for up and coming fisherman. If you keep the kids outdoors doing positive things...they will be less likely to do drugs and other devious negative acts of stupidity!!!

Good luck with the boys Ray!!

No problem. That stuff happens. Thanks for the offer. Much appreciated! Hope we get to fish sometime before it's on ice. You, your son and any of the crew are always welcome to whatever I've got. Love to see the kids out and having fun.

    •     Well just in some of the data and articles I read, which might be fake news I don't really know. It looked like the amount/lbs of walleye were in the lake just that there are a lot of large ones and not many small ones.......The data also showed that the bait fish were really dropping in amounts/numbers.....   Interesting to see that a report from someone like yourself is just like I head from the guy I met at upper red. Thought maybe he was pulling my string or something when he told me the fishing was great, then seen the DNR shut the lake down.
    •   Thats the thing, I can't find really any good pictures of one. I was given this auger a few days ago buy a guy who didn't use or want it.  He only used it once when he forgot his power auger. There is a string with a price tag on it for $89. It was sitting in his machine shed in a corner collecting dust.   I cleaned up the auger and touched it up. There was a slight ding in the auger flighting up a turn or two from the bottom. That I fixed. However,  the mounting head for the blades didn't have any of the original powder paint damaged, none had flaked off, and there was no rust spots. The blades where rusted up but not damaged. I assume if they were bent the powder paint would have expanded & flaked off. The two blade angles seem to look like they are how they should be. So I'm really kinda leaning that the blade mounts might not be bent with the way it looks.    If I look at the shaver blades from the top or bottom they look like a normal shaver blade. However, when looked at from the side they seem to have a very slight curve that matches the blade mount. Did jiffy have a design like this different from the others? So I'm confused.......what would be the odds of both the blade mount sides being bent to what looks like exact angles.......if they were bent what is the odds of both blades seeming to conform to the bends without cracking or breaking........I measured from one outside blade edge to the other and got 8in......but I know 8in augers can go from a range of 7.5in-8.5in depending on brand and other things......If the blade mounts were bent I would think some powder paint would have flaked off.......I'll do the ice bucket trick.....was hoping someone had one or could chime in. It looks a little like a design between a flat shaver and a curved blade if it's not bent......I do really like the design if that is what it is meant to be. I also love the blade cover being a rubber that is tight and doesn't fall off. I just really don't know if they are bent or not bent. Confusing.....Also wondering if flat shaver blades would work on it or if I would need to find a set of Jiffy blades that had a slight curve to them.....
    • I wax every exposed part of the string. 
    • BD!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i wasnt good enough for a lakeside lot!!!!!!!!!!!
    •   Is that you, or the back of BD then?
    • well, that picture he posted?????????? that was my boat and i was part owner of that dock if that tells ya anything!!!!!!!!! yea he's been there!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    •   Ok but you told BigDave huh? Maybe he'll give it up?
    • Hi guys,   I am a beginner and just purchased a Matthew Halon bow last year.  However, I haven't waxed the bowstring and figured I should do it before this season starts.   My bowstring doesn't seem to have any colors on it showing where to avoid waxing it.    Can somebody explain or direct me to a video on where to avoid waxing on the bowstring of a Matthew Bow?  I know the part about rubbing the wax into the string good, but I am unsure which part of the bowstring to avoid waxing exactly.    Thank you.
