A little crowded

I stumbled onto these pictures of the Jaycees Ice Fishing tourney in Brainerd, MN. Supposedly 20,000 holes pre-drilled! shocked More than 10,000 anglers participate.

My uncle is the guy with the black coat, camo bibs & orange hat in the middle. wink

20,000 holes drilled?

Wow.

You would think with that many holes and that much weight on top you would have water pushing up through the holes.

So where's WALDO? Seem to have a little trouble finding him. Usually I can find him easily but not this one. laugh. I wonder how many ice augers were used and how much gasoline they went thru?

About 100 augers provided by StrikeMaster, 2 people to an auger. They told us we drilled 17,000 holes that day.

...this is what happens when you go online and tell everyone where the hot bite is. Happens everytime!

yah, i heard it was brutal that day. Wind, and cold...Yikers.

Last year our guys did about 200 holes each, for our TAKO event. I dont think they could lift an ice rod for about 3 hours.

That is a great pic. It is amazing that they get this accomplished every year. Man that is one big undertaking... Kudos to all who take part in it and those that make it happen.

    • Box? i don't think I've ever seen them but will be looking in a little while
    • Buy a box of cheesy tots.  Cook.   Use rack over sheet pan on grill or in oven.  😀
    • Cheesy tots sound great! Anyone got a recipe?
    • If you're feeling adventurous some time follow the same process you just explained but instead of using a rib rub try using a generous amount of Montreal Chicken seasoning with yellow mustard as your glue.  Also, try a wing or thigh before using the Famous Dave sauce.   Goof Luck
    • I took wings, thighs and legs and put rib rub on them and let them sit for 4 hours then I smoked them for about 90 minutes this morning. Tonight I put them on the grill to crisp up and slathered with Famous Dave's. I seem to kill chicken on the grill but with the smoker I can regulate better plus all that flavor. Only way I'll do chicken now!
    • The grain belt is a bigger sin.😁
    • Yes, I noticed the bottled water in the back👺
    • I did 2 racks of St. Louis style ribs on the pellet smoker yesterday, rubbed with smoky mesquite seasonings...  so good no bbq sauce was used when they were eaten!!!  did the 3-2-1 method but used different temps from the last time I did them...  started at 175 for 3 hrs, then 230 wrapped and finished unwrapped at 230...  Oh Yea!!!
