SCAT,
Well the auger cut real well ,Condor almost fell on his face when it broke through grin.gif
Fishing was real slow on URL only two crapps kept and a few walleyes released.
LOW was o.k. we brought home about 50 or so walleyes and sauger and a bucket full of tullibees.
It was alittle drunk out friday night at W.W. with Kelly,Gooseslayer, Jigglestick and joefishin.
We are planing a day trip up there in early april.We'll have a get together one more time before the ice is out since you won't be around here any more and good luck up in Ely.

Well one thing is that the auger survived the flight of the Montero out on URL.
Going aprox. 35mph and hitting and 3' heave in the ice makes you airborne alittle bit grin.gif
Only damage done in 1 broken rod and some shook up minnows and a head ache from hitting the roof of the truck shocked.gif

We were about 9 miles out of Adrian's road in about 30 ft of water. The saugers were running alittle smallbut some close to 15".
Also lots of smallish walleyes around 6-8 inches but we kept 9 from 18" to 24". The 24" was bleeding bad from the gills so we kept it.
But it sure was good to get away for awhile grin.gif

Dragged you right down, did it? Nice to have an auger pull you through the ice instead of having to lean on the sucker. grin.gif Been there, done that.

    • 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? 
    • Was up there a week ago. We stayed at the Walleye Retreat Lodge but did our own fishing rather than using their houses. First day we went out kind of N-NW of Morris Point into 27' of water. Didn't do too well. Just a couple saugers in the afternoon.    My nephew was up there with another bunch and went out using Adrian's Resort access and did quite well that same day. They gave us waypoints to their location so on day 2 we tried that. It was about 15 miles north in 33' of water. We did much better this day although most were still saugers in the 12" - 13" range. Got a few walleye in the 15" - 19" range and one 21" by your's truly.    Seemed our best success, especially for the walleyes, was dead sticking using a plain hook through the back of rainbows about a foot off the bottom. I talked to one of our neighboring fishermen and he had just landed a 27" walleye.
    • Like others have said, Impulse mayflies on a 3 or 4mm tungsten jig is my go-to for panfish. If you are targeting deeper crappies or big fish only give the Lindy frosted spoons a try, 1/16 works quite well tipped with a minnow head or waxies.
    • WOW!!!  I have read about the electronic reverse problems on DooTalk,,, I have the manual reverse and have not had any issues,,,, Bummer to hear about your engine issue ,,, Hope the dealer gets you up and back on the trails ,,, Who knows when we will get another winter like this again ,,, I do need to get some spare relays one of these days
