Lucky shirt!! :)

Landed 7 pickeral and 3 bass today. 

Plus we helped a guy retrieve his brand new Jiffy auger bit from the bottom!

Apparently the new propane models just have a pin secured by a rubber sleeve to hold the bit to the powerhead.

The sleeve slid down the shaft, the pin slid out, and the bit went down the hole!! :banghd:

He went and bought a couple 150lb pull magnets and a spool of rope from Harborfreight while I drilled and chiseled a 4ft square hole over the spot.

It was tough to get it unstuck from the weeds and mud @ 9ft down there but we got her back!

He promptly reattached the two peices with a bolt and lucknut. :laugh:

Plenty of good ice (5"+) on the ponds where I fish in the Rutland/Paxton area off of Rt. 190 just North of Worcester.

Probably add an inch or two after this arctic blast coming the next few days!!

 

Shoot me a PM when you decide to go and maybe I'll join ya:howdy:
