  1. Hit the Red River over the weekend for the 2nd time this spring. First outing wasn't great with a handful of smaller cats all under 10lbs. This weekend was a different story as we ended up with 15 cats Friday night. 5 over 10lbs, 2 of which were high teens fish. All caught on cut river bait.  Cats were on the shallow side of the river. Water was high and flowing pretty good. All fish were caught and released. Great night of fishin w no bugs to bother us and very nice weather! Gonna give it another whirl soon in a boat this time. Have a look!!

  2. I've used a few drill plate augers and loved them. Saw a few k drills in action and liked what I saw also. I like the Clam auger kits because they have 2 handles, more control over the auger. Setting it down where you stand was a issue w the k drill, as you have to keep your drill out of the snow and slush. Clam augers have 2 handles where you can lay them down on either handle w out them in the snow or water. Haven't got one stuck in the ice.....yet

    Was also informed that most hand augers will fit the Clam kit

  3. Sick of lugging the heavy jiffy pro 4 around lately. Been a great auger and will keep it for LOW trips! Looking to purchase a clam conversion kit. Have a 20v drill, I want a 8" hole though. Question is: can I purchase any hand auger and hook the flighting to the kit or does a guy have to purchase the Clam 8" flighting for it? 

  4. I've had it on a few different lakes and still the same result. I'm a tungsten jig type of person, thought those showed up better on the vex?? Bigger profile jigs show up better than small. Any type of jig is a in-out flicker. Been on some finiky fish lately,  used some very small jigs and they barely show up. I'll try the battery next! Thanks guys

  5. Got out yesterday on some sketchy ice. Was at my mom's place and decided to check some ice. After figuring out I wasn't going to make it out far, come to the conclusion i was just going to set a couple tip ups out and watch from the house. Had 3 flags early in the day but couldn't seem to connect with a fish. They would run with the minnow and drop it shortly after. Thinking they were small fish tripping the flags. Prime time rolled around and I spotted a flag in 12+ FOW! Excited and praying to the walleye gods I ran out to the flag! Upon arrival it seemed it was another dead flag as I pulled a decent amount of line up. All the sudden I felt a good bump on the other end of the line and the line started rolling out of my hands! Gave it a good hook set and soon found out I had a NICE fish on! Steady pull and BIG head shakes!! Gotta be a walleye I was thinking to myself trying to stay calm and collected! Sure enough! The eyes lit up as she came through the hole once!! Calm and collected soon turned into panic! She thrashed around and I couldn't seem to get her head started up the hole! Let her run one more time and try again I said. So I did, as she came to the hole the 2nd time she was a lot slower moving than the first sighting of her. I slowly reached down and grabbed a gill and landed this respectable Mrs Walter!!! Did a little CPR and sent her on her way with a little TLC. Your not living if you don't get excited about that! 27 inches and some change. I've caught bigger but it's my first fish of the year so I'm not complaining! Scratched the itch I've had since first freeze up!! HAVE A LOOK!!

  6. Slammed a few of these guys pulling Bigfoot frogs this evening! Was trolling for walleyes and heard the frogs singing and bass jumping! Couldn't resist! They were annihilating the bait and almost swallowing it! 3 ft of water in the rushes and padsVZM.IMG_20160613_230146.jpg

  7.  Got out in the early am and got into some smaller walleyes. Fished off the dock for a bit in the afternoon and landed this nice 25". Should be a interesting weekend coming up w a memorial tournament. Hopefully these quality fish stay active for us! Have a look!

  8. The fish slayer is at again!!! The color on this Gill is crazy! Not a giant by any means, but a beautiful respectable gill! Caught all by himself on a slip bobber and leech in about 6 fow. With a handful of others that were smaller and a few small pike. Very proud of my mini-me!! He'll be tournament fishing with me in no time at the rate he's learning! Have a look! VZM.IMG_20160611_083445.jpg

  9. A buddy of mine decided to take the family out for a evening of slip bobber action. Me and a couple friends fished next to them in another boat. Walleyes were slow moving but we got to watch his wife land this 27 inch dandy! Another biggest walleye memory made! What a year it's been already and the summer is just getting started!

    And Another 28 landed yesterday with 4 other nice fish in a couple hrs of fishing! We are seeing the results from local stocking and a lot of CPR on this lake in the past! Some more catch and release F-U-N!!!Have a look!
