    Strikemaster Rocks

    Don't knock the Jif!! I've had my jiffy for 22 years, drilled thousands of holes, only on my 2nd set of blades, never even replaced the spark plug yet! Don't even know how good jiffys customer service is, cause its never needed to be repaired! Not too many strikes going that long without a little TLC.

    It's Time for Gardenhire to go!!!!!

    I'm just going to give my 2 cents worth with this team that will never go anywhere in this league as long as Gardy's coach! How long to we have to watch the bonehead moves he's made over the years! He's had great players to work with and has a hard time staying in 2nd or 3rd place in the leagues worst division!! How many times do we need to see Nathan pitch when its a tie game with only 2-3 pitchers left to close out the game if it goes a few more innings! How many times do we have to watch 4-million dollar Nicky Punto not get on base or get picked off when he gets on base. How many times do we need to see great ball players like Morales as a back up cather only get pushed back down to AAA to get more seasoned when its clear he did better then Redmond did all year! Who finally tells the dumb s**t that its time to let Buscher go after 2- seasons of doing nothing! How long will we have to put up with the new rising power hitter Young that only hit 6-homers this year. Didn't Gardy have a clue towards the end of last year when his pitching team when to s**t., but only decides to bring the whole pitching staff back this year for another chance?? My god... I coach little league and I could have won the division 3 years in a row with the players we had. Must be politics, or guys like nicky fetching him coffee daily to keep his job. Bottom line is this.... GARDY NEEDS TO GO!!!!

    Rod Holding Devices

    I also use the same ones from Fish House Supply. Last year while fishing Red I went outside to bank the fish house. Thought I heard my drag going off?? when I went back inside the house my $110 rod/reel combo was on my Rod Holder pointing strait down the hole with the drag screaming!! Well I saved the rod and released the fish, a nice 42" pike! These Lewandoski Rod Holders work great and with the bent hook on the bar, the rod slips on and off great! Here is a link to them http://rattlereels.com/rodholder.htm

    Mattresses for fish house?

    I have built a few fish houses and used both Milacas and Fish House Supply's. Fish House Supply's are much firmer and are well worth the few dollars more.

    Strike Lite vs Lazer Mag Performance

    I'm in the same pickle..... Love my old jiffy, but I'm getting older and it only seems to get heavier every year. Its lasted 20 years without a problem and still has the original spark plug!! I need to update, but what auger will keep up to that track record? Thinking about the strikelite or the new German Solo??

    just got back from the Ice show

    I didn't go the last 2 years because it's the same ol' thing year after year. Seems like the cars, trucks, 4-wheelers etc take up most the space! But I can't say enough for the deals that Reeds give! The only reason for me to go again?? just to see what Reeds is giving away!

    solar charger for wheelhouse

    Your better off spending $170 for a Power Coverter that will charge your batteries with a generator for a few hours then spending a few hundred bucks on solar panels. If your batteries are dead it may take a couple of weeks to charge them with solar. Your generator will charge them thru the power converter in a couple hours while your watching TV! I have a 45 amp Power Converter from Fish House Supply with a 2000 honda. Great set up!
