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.

    • 504A for me. Taking a newbie out this year if he was drawn. Need this weather to turn around pretty quick.
    • I also picked up a couple extra trailer tilt pins in case someone walks off with mine again. I would have taken my enclosed trailer but my check engine light is on in my Suburban to and it comes up knock sensor. And they don't recommend driving it with bad knock sensor or could damage engine. Need a warmer day to tackle that as it involves removing the intake to get at the darn thing. Hope my luck improves
    • Seems like one could use chuck to make corned beef, but don't see much about it on the net...  Might be a fun experiment.
    • Dropped it off at dealer today and might be a week to get it back. Not sure you have relays with manual reverse but if anyone is looking for spares they are $5 at O Rielly parts and they have more expensive ones to but look just like the $5 ones. I bought 4 of them for spares. Im also going to ask mechanic when I pick it up if there is a way to get it out of reverse manually so if it ever happens out in the middle of the woods. 
    • corned beef is right up there but we are now getting into the season where the sales will start!!  love the ruebens too!!!  but it is one thing I never made from scratch, just store bought and cooked...  go for it bobber!!! 
    • Got drawn for the MN B season! Hope the weather cooperates.
    • Did you ever end up making corned beef Thunderlund? or anyone?The Mrs went up to cub yesterday so I had her pick up some c beef from the deli for Ruebens, holy moly they dont give that stuff away!!  I see most recipes call for brisket ( thinking maybe end up kind of stringy) but I do have several chuck roasts,  I'm thinking brining one and give it a whirl..If so how'd it turn out?
    • I use a lighter duty set on the front because they fit tighter and have better clearance. On the back I use  more aggressive v-bars. Sometimes one set isn’t enough and once I got stuck with both sets on. I’m pretty new to this too but for the most part they’ve worked  well for me. 
    • I've used these too. Do you add any meat or whole minnow? Hooked through the back or lip?
