Insearchoffish and I are planning on ice fishing Caples on Saturday. I get to try out my brand new auger! Just posting, so that whoever wants to come out and join us will be totally welcome. We will probably get there around 730 AM or so. Anyone who comes out is welcome to borrow my auger.
Come on out, good company and fresh fish make for a good outing. Warning; I may bring some Bushmills. If I can't catch any fish at least I can drink like one lol

Do u need one of them little poles, or just a regular trout rod?

I personally don't see why you would need a small pole. Just sit further back from the hole :)

Don't know yet. Probably either out by the spillway or over off the rock dam. I will probably be going up in my orange Honda Element, it has a ladder rack on the top. I will be wearing a brown felt Stetson.

Mine is a hand crank, the ice shouldn't be extremely thick so shouldn't be that bad drilling through it.

Ice is about 10-12" thick under about 12 inches or so of packed snow. Had to get on my knees to finish drilling thru. Won't be long before an extension will be needed..unless we get an extended dry period.
If I don't go to Pyramid this weekend I hope to see you guys up there.

If you make it Ill operate that beast! I also plan on bringing tools to break and clean out old holes as well! Less time drilling more time fishing!

The Big fish were from out of state UT, Fish Lake and Otter Creek a 10# Trout but i did catch a 12# mac from caples 5 years ago. I just got tickets for the Niner Game on Saturday so This trip is a no go for me. Sad to say i am selling all of my Ice Fishing gear due to a injury. PM me with any Questions About Gear i will send you my Phone #. Rod's yes the short one's a Fish finder, 10" Gas Auger all the gear you will ever need, and all in Great Condition.

Hey someone has to go and taste test those smushed grapes, bring back something good for the next adventure! Maybe something that would go good with a lakeside leg of lamb.:wine1:
