So far as fishing gear goes I've gotten a Jiffy model 30 9" power auger, St.Croix rod/reel combo, and a really warm pair of fishing gloves. I should be pretty well set for fishing now!

"Santa" has gotten me so far, a FL-18 even though I think I really wanted the Marcum instead, we'll see I think I'll pick one of those up too, and compare them for myself... sell other one. He also brought me a new trailer for the wheeler and ice house, in fact he thinks I'm so great this year I'll probably end up with a nice gas auger, and A Marcum 560 underwater cam. He says I'll be good til the Easter bunny visits.

Stocking stuffers were good this year, lots of Northland Tackle buckshots forage minnows
Gum drop floaters and some glow treble hooks (something I never used before) Carhartt bibs and of course my lazer auger and other tackle last night. It was a very good Christmas here for sure.

All my kids are grown, I had to work a 12 hour shift at work, and I'm now eating noodles before I go to sleep and go back to work at 11Pm. On the up side, I get 12 hours of pay at 2&1/2 times the normal rate. That's a 30 hour day. The extra will make an extra payment on my truck. When its paid off, I'm going to buy a quadrunner. When I get it, I will run amock. Be afraid. Be very afraid.

    • Have you changed anything from your first attempt on venison bacon
    • A pic of the creek where we hunt, my deer, son in laws deer. Blended all 3 to 1. Ended up kinda neat for us. 
    • I have used a Toro single stage for about 10 years now. I was very skeptical until I helped a friend with snow removal. I won't ever go back to a 2 stage. Mine is a 2 stroke but I've seen the 4 stroke Toros in action and they seem just as good. There have been a couple times of heavy snow fall where I had to do the driveway in the middle of a storm and again at the end and also times of breaking up the plow ridge at the end but the pros far outweigh the cons. I like that it folds up like a lawnmower. When I get the mower out in the spring the blower goes under the shelf. No more big bulky blower in the way all the time and the rubber paddles clean right down to the cement. It's light enough to throw in the pickup and if you lift on the handles it'll propel itself if the snow isn't super deep. Go for the single. You won't regret it. 
    • The best snow thrower I’ve used is the one that uses your arms and a shovel😂 No blower or plow for me I can have the driveway done in the same amount of time if not a hair faster than a blower and, we’ve got a pretty decent sized driveway to, We get a good pile at the end from the grader that plows the township roads. I have wanted to mount a plow on one of the wheelers to plow the road as our township is extremely cheap and there must be Minimum 3-4 inches to plow. Anyway single stages are better for smaller drive ways and less snow. Personally I’d never by a single stage as you get a decent snow load and it may get frustrating or that pile at the end from the plow. But being you have a 2 stage as well it shouldn’t be an issue. Finding a good heavy duty rig with a good engine is key. Toro makes a good blower as well as huqvarna IMO. Im not sure if  huqvarna evenmakes smaller blower though.
    • I wouldn't get the Honda 4-Cycle Single Stage.  We have one at work and they are gutless wonders.  We also have the Toro 2 cycle single stage and that has a lot more balls!  IMO.  😉
    • A good bottle of bourbon or case of beer might make a difference.....
    • Great feedback.  I guess I will go with the single stage.  Just wish I had a solution for keeping the plow driver from pushing our entire culdesac's snow onto my lawn.
    • I have a Gen1 Helix 5 and love it on the ice, but also use it on my kayak. If I were to do it over again I would have got the 7" or bigger. Its not so much an issue on the ice but DI/SI is hard  to fully utilize on a 5" screen.
    • I always use 6lb mono for jigging rods and And 8lb mono on deadsticks. No leaders for me I’ve debated it but it doesn’t really seem to make a difference if you have one or not. 
    • My thinking is the grease would make up for the gap, but wasn't sure if it'll still have too much play. Yet, don't want it too tight where it gets stuck.
