No, the handle underneath the reel seat & grip twists & collapses/extends 3 inches or so, but it went loose & wouldn’t extend or retract after a few months. I finally got it fully extended & just left it out & quite messing with it.

It’ll be a while here too. My friend who runs a garage told me when they dug up the alley behind it to fix something, they had to go 3.5 feet to get through the frost. They went 2’ with the pointed bucket for the backhoe & switched to the regular, but ended up having to switch back. If the ground is that bad, I’m betting the ice is think as hell too. Oh, and we’ve had next to no snow here too, which means no significant melt running on top of the ice to help speed up the spring meltdown.

Little over 2’ of ice in places here. Most everywhere is at least 18”.

that’s crazy, it was in the 80’s today. spinnerbait was hot again. silver willow. I tried out Jakes Baits and caught a bunch but nothing big. the biggest was 3lbs. I took a 13 yr old kid out and his dad and they were using them wacky style. green pumpkin. i really liked them. I’ll buy more or should I say I’ll only buy them as long as they are for sale. Good job Jake. BH
