Just got my New Nils Power head back on my Nils 8" auger shaft. Didnt need the power head until just recently. We now have over 2' of ice in spots. I cant say how much I love the Nils as a hand auger. Cuts through the ice like a hot knife threw butter. Now with the power head on its time to do some serious hole burning.

Surface Tension sharpened up my blades pre season and I cant say enough how good of a job he does.

Rock on Nils and Surface Tension.

It sure dose! We have around 31 inches on some lakes here in southern MN and I'll have three holes cut before my buddies will have their auger started.

I have the orange convertible and love it. So easy with the drill to cut through its sick. And maybe 1-1.5 minutes to cut through 30" inches of ice manually. After a season or two, the head will go to Frank for sharpening.

I'm not getting a lot of holes with one battery at these extreme thicknesses, but this is a pretty unusual year. And I have only 3-4" clearance before I hit the flange to prevent it from going down the hole. Again, far from normal to be this thick in north metro lakes.

    • Nice win last night with Kepler & Schoop doing the heavy lifting. Some tough but good work done by the bullpen too.  Yanks beat the Indians as well.👍
    • Nice bag of fish there Duff!   I was out for about an hour and a half last night and managed 9 bites; 4 bass and 5 pike.  Only 1 bass and 2 pike made it to the boat though.  Horrible conversion rate.   The bite is still on reaction baits for me.  Buzz bait, spinner bait, rattle bait, jerk bait.  Nothing on plastic which is usually my go to.  It’s been weird with all the short bites lately.  I’ve had very few fish that have crushed the bait.  Earlier I figured it was a food thing - they were just too well fed.  I’m hoping that’s still the case cuz those bass have DEEP bodies on ‘em.  I’m starting to wonder though if the pressure is getting to them.  We’ve had a noticeable uptick of new fisher people in the area.   The side action: Had a couple turkeys glide by and up to their roost next to me about 10 minutes after watching a nice 10 pointer stand up out his bed.  Yawn, stretch, [PoorWordUsage] and watch me fish for bit before wandering off to feed.  Bad photo but better n nuthin.  
    • I like the walnut one.   Crack the shell, add some water, wrap it in a wet paper towel, it germinates, keep in a sunny area, and then they show these magic walnuts.     I think they left out about 15 years.  LOL.
    • Finally, had a decent day.......or shall I say hour. Last week was a bust, one 3ish fish in 4 hours. I target bigger fish, so just avoiding the skunk can be challenging some days.   Just let out the hound and had a smirk appear on my face, I see It's full moon out there. That always helps. Got out on the water at 3:00 today, missed 3 out of 4 bites right away.   Changed up my retrieval speed and cadence and it was on..........for a few minutes. All my action occurred within the first hour of my four hour stint.   4 cookie cutter bass....... 3.87 lb 3.94 lb 4.12 lb 4.16 lb   Spot on spot, the two 4's were back to back. I'm running cranks.   Good luck out there. The Fattening is coming up soon.
