Sad to say my ice fishing is done for the year, I had shoulder surgery yesterday to repair a football injury. Had 3 bone chips removed, one over an inch long, also they did a micro fracture to regrow torn cartiledge that was also removed. I'm in a sling for a month....

Sadly it doesn't get any better, June 5th I go in for another surgery, to re-attach 2 ligaments, then I will be in a brace that holds my arm out to the side for a month. Hopefully I'm good to go for my Canada trip in mid July.

So does anyone know how to run an auger with one arm? Best month of crappie fishing coming up I sure don't want to miss it.

Sounds like you should just give up on life altogether...

But seriously, I bet if you asked anyone else on the ice with you, and play the sympathy card, and I doubt anyone would be willing to say no to drilling a hole for a man down...good luck, sport injuries just get worse with age.

I had microfracture done on my knee this summer from a ninth grade hockey injury. They took out a chip that was about 15 millimeters in diameter. Old sports injuries aren't fun.

    • Now that the corn is out and the ground is white the birds are really showing themselves. Three times in the last month I have seen 50-60  birds on a short day. Nearly every one was in a group and they are concentrating in dense thickets of plum brush.    And there are literally next to no hunters out and about going after them which is a big change from even a decade ago
    • I too remember these stupid punch cards in High school.  All the Nerds in the Computer class did stuff with um! 😅
    • I remember those stupid punch cards.  I was in junior high and had to “program” em in class.  I hated em and thought I’d just avoid using computers altogether! 😀
    • Good hunt in SD today: 
    • Had the day off so hit some public land around the Mitchell area today.   Did well, my favorite upland gun is my O/U and is currently broke. Busted a firing pin and waiting for gunsmith to get a knew one made on a lathe. So today I brought out the old 870 which I haven’t shot in at least 5 years or more.   Thought it would throw off my shooting but to my surprise managed a quick double on 2 shots lol. it’s always amazing how fast a day in the field can turn around. And I really enjoyed shooting this gun again. It’s amazing how something so cheap and simple is so good.   Day started out really slow I couldn’t find birds anywhere and then found the motherload. Shot my 3rd bird, put it in my vest and bumped birds all the way back to the truck.   Good late season hunt just wish we had more snow. And this warm weather isn’t helping ice that’s for sure.  
    • Looks good!  👍 Lets see no work gloves, may be a hat?  Do you have a coaster under that hot pan mister? 😊
    • Steak fajitas tonight.
    • The window on AIX that I read Usenet News on was....   I started on computers with punch cards, then moved up to a 2260 and MTMT (multiple terminal monitor task) which was an IBM Rochester homegrown thing for running terminals attached to the 360/65 we had at the time.   Actual first computer I ever used was a CDC 1604 at the U of MN.....
    • There I might have made it a little easier to read😁    Hope we are all still around in another 10 years!!
