Do you know what the topic of the seminar is? Or is that decided at the last minute by Gregg? I might possibly attend. Thanks for the heads up.

Hanson, I think the topic is "Blueprints of Musky Success."

If I find out otherwise I'll be sure and post. Hope you can make it.

I think Greg is a special guide, he seems so grounded and he speaks more to the truth than most. Seems like his blueprint to success runs true. Fish good water at whatever time of the day the pattern is showing. smile M.B.

Thanks 50inch. I saw that was the title, but was just curious if you knew anything more specific about the discussion. "Blueprints of Musky Success" could include a discussion of a lot of different things, should be interesting anyway.

Yeah, did ya like my 2nd post there? Ha - I figured you could read as well as the next guy, I just wasn't sure what to say.

I have not attended any of his clinics or fished with him before so I'm not sure about the methodology, but like Buck said, he seems like a pretty straight shooter and whatever he's doing seems to be working.

Hopefully someone who's seen him speak before will weigh in.

I've seen gregg talk a few times and spent some time talking 1 on 1 with him. Very straight shooter, imo. Very excited and serious about muskies. I don't think he inflates anything, if it's worked for him, he'll tell you so it can hopefully work for you.

I think you guys will see me there, someone bump this thread closer to the date or i'll never remember...

Just a reminder guys - lots of fun musky stuff to do during the winter between the St. Cloud, Chapter 54, the Metro chapters of MI, and the FM chapter.

Anyone checking out Road Rules this weekend? Remember, women are free, DeBo.

I have fished with Gregg a couple times and have attended his musky road rules seminar and on the water workshop. I think he is very down to earth, knowledgeable, and willing to help other people with fishing.

Just a reminder - it's on tonight, if any FMers make it make sure you come up and introduce yourself after the seminar.

It was a good time, Gregg gave away a full day trip and talked about short line trolling, eels and tubes, and a couple other things. I was impressed by his genuine concern and enthusiasm for the resource here in MN and his support was much appreciated by St. Cloud MI.

    • 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"....  
    • i,ve been falsey accused of inproprieties!!!!!!!!!!!
