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.

    • Watch their interference disappear when you shut your marcum off 🤨
    • Rick was going to start that topic right after this one slowed down! 😅
    • Don't be fooled by stainless cables. Take proper care of them and change them every few years.Do your pivots every couple years too.
    • Might as well get augers in on this too!
    • Just counted 14 of them under and on my feeder. Cardinals, Nuthatches, Juncos, and asst sparrows came in and they chased them all away. It's like one stands guard and chase everything off. Sorry guys, time has come to start thinning the blue rats out!

    • nope..........havent graduated to posting meme's yet!!!!!!!!!
    • Have a marcum LX9 also use a couple Lowrance units. After using them side by side there are features I like on both but just comparing sonar units I'd have to say that my lowrance units squeak out a win for me over the Marcum. Both are very close to the same performance. The Marcum is much easier to just plop and fish where the lowrance units you have to dial in for each situation. I've never been a traditional flasher guy and never see the need to after using a graph.
    • Yep put mine away this past Saturday. I haven't used it since August. I wanted to park my truck inside instead and I would rather hunt then fish anyways...
    • Go to Milaca unclaimed Freight and for the pulley 8to 1 lift. Cheap and easy
