NEWS for IMMEDIATE RELEASE

What: Minnesota Fishing Challenge, a multi-species team fishing tournament

Where: Saturday, May 30, Gull Lake, headquartered at Ernie’s on Gull

Fishermen Support Teen Challenge

The first annual fishing tournament to “reel-in” funds for Minnesota Teen Challenge is set for Gull Lake on Saturday, May 30. Teams will be on the water, while friends and families will enjoy games and activities on shore.

Brainerd’s Al Lindner will serve as honorary director of the Minnesota Fishing Challenge presented by Mills Fleet Farm. He said, “The support for this event has been spectacular. Fishermen are pulling together to raise money, and their day on the water will be a bonus.”

Each team raised at least $500 in tax-deductible sponsorship dollars from friends, relatives and businesses. When the tournament was first proposed, Lindner said, “I bet many teams will find more than $500 in sponsorships.” He was correct, and with more than 80 teams participating, the final tally will be impressive.

Teams will bring the fish they catch to the weigh-in stage at Ernie’s on Gull. The free stage show and weigh-in ceremonies will be full of laughs, tall tales, fish stories and fun, starting at 3:30 p.m. Trophies for the Full Throttle walleye and bass divisions and the Nor-Son panfish and northern pike divisions will be awarded along with an array of prizes. All fish will be released.

There will be more than fish at Ernie’s. The Fishing for Life youth activities and games, and the Centershot Archery range will also be open to youngsters. These hands-on games and shooting are free to the public starting at 1 p.m.

Minnesota Teen Challenge is a faith-based organization to help people find freedom from the destructive habits of alcohol and drug abuse. Sam Anderson, director of the Brainerd facility said, “This support from the fishing fraternity means so much. Thank you! Our goal is to help each person who walks through our doors find true freedom from addiction. Hope is being restored one life at a time here at Minnesota Teen Challenge.”

    • 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!!!!!!!!!!!
