Figured I'd put  this here as well as the main forum so it doesn't get lost.

Hopefully it gets certified.  ;)

Drifter did you see his sweet jig in the CBC article?

I had good luck for Burbs on Takhini R. here in Whitehorse, but the ice was so full of sand I didn't even get all 10 holes in for my set lines before the blades were too dull to cut.  I wonder how they're getting around that on the Mackenzie?  Thinner ice in November I suppose anyways...

Get yourself an auger with chipper blades.
The shaver type blades dull quickly in sandy ice.
You can pick up a new auger for your current powerhead.  ;)

Interesting hook. :)
