8 posts in this topic

i know this is a long shot but i was fishing down by the lilydale boat launch friday night by the wing dams. And i accidently left one of my rods down there. brought 3 left with 2.... it is a 7' white catfish rod from Gander mountain. tip is glow in the dark green with a spinning rod on it and 65lb power pro on it. pretty sure it wont turn up just thought i would try and give this a shot i have seen other people find poles on here after they lost them

Did you leave it on one of the wingdams? I was down there on those wingdams fishing for cats on Saturday night - Didn't see one out there then. Good luck!

Johnny,

Did you have a fire going? I think we saw your fire, but to dark to see you. Did you guys get anything?

If you saw a fishing boat with head lights, that was us grin.

quackkills,

If I had found out earlier in the day (if it had been posted around 12:15 am Saturday), we sure would have looked for ya.

Sorry and good luck!

That was me and the GF sitting by the fire. We were using bullheads and didn't get a single run, much less a fish.

me and my buddies were off the second one downstream from the launch, i left it by the logs on shore but then we jumped in the boat and headed up the river. thats how i forgot it. yea we had a fire going for a little bit. had two runs on bull heads and one on cut bait. landed one on a frog i caught by shore, about a 15-18lb channel. nothin else the rest of the night. heading back out after work to give it another try and maybe check in the woods to see if someone maybe threw it in the woods or somethin.

I'm not sure how familiar you are with the area, but a single guy wondering around out there in the woods will likely draw some attention from Sen. Larry Craig's cronies who hang out in those woods.

That's why I always bring the GF when I go fishing down there.

Sounds like you caught a pretty nice channel atleast though. 15-18 lbs is nothing short of shabby!

Oh Mr. Short Shorts won't bother you. He seems very timid. I have passed by him many times and we always say hi. I think people scare the guy or at least he is very timid around them. Not that I want to strike up a conversation with him or anything and give him the wrong idea. crazy

    • Had an 09'. Got rid of it. Also,  you could not keep the front end aligned.  Otherwise a very nice truck.
    • Helps when I comprehend what I read.  I actually just cut the handle off my tongue jack on my Yetti and welded on 3/4 nut too.  My M18 drill with 1,200 in-lbs (2704-20) and it has no problem raising or lowering the tongue.  Biggest thing I noticed was making sure my drill was on the #1 low speed setting.      As far as torque goes and harming your auger.  I think you are totally fine and shouldn't harm anything.  The max amount that these K-Drills and Clam plates are drilling these days with the big drills are 8".  Most sized augers these days have no problem turning a 10" auger which is nearly twice as large of an area than an 8" auger.  Being 2 strokes can normally operate in any orientation without being damaged the only concern I would have would be your gears and any shifting of grease inside operating the auger head on its side under load.    They say Ions will do 10" holes but after I talked to their customer service reps about it, I wouldn't trust an Ion with a 10" more than I do a wet fart.  Just the fact that they don't even sell a 10" package indicates there could possibly be issues with torque and reliability when operating the 10" auger "accessory".  For now I'd just stick to your strike master going up and save your Ion any extra wear and tear.  Maybe even ask Santa for some electric jacks this Christmas
    • As the media begins to draw a pretty picture about the November jobs report, namely that unemployment has dropped to 4.6 percent, its lowest level in nine years, they are unlikely to tell you the other part of the story. The labor force participation rate continues to decline and is stuck at a rate we haven't seen since February 1978, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.  It gets worse. Last month, we lost 4,000 manufacturing jobs, offering more damage to the already 301,000 we've lost since President Obama took office. - Town Hall   See for yourself.. U.S. Dept of Labor / BLS Date Viewer   Whaaa ???   OH, MY....  
    • I wouldn't do that for each one. I was wondering if you couldn't cut a winch down, or maybe just leave it as is, so you could attach a drill to the low speed post and tack weld/rig a socket or something for the other side and just hold it in your hand. It probably won't work because it sounds too easy. 
    • My, such big words!! Yer a talented liddle Smurf, aintcha? We might as well get to work doin' what we were accused of, munchkin!!! Like Carly Simon said, "no one does it better"....
