Auger Extension

10 posts in this topic

We'll be making our first ever trip to Red Jan 25th-out of Hillman's. In a typical year, should I expect to need an extension by then?

Thanks

Not usually. But I'd bring one to be safe. They don't take up too much room in your baggage and you have a solid month to buy one if you don't have one. No reason to go on a ice fishing trip and not bring one along in case it's needed.

Good Luck!

Ken

Like Labs said, not usually. Although I've been in "Spots" where the hole would have come up dry without one that time of year.

Better safe than wishing you were fishing. wink.gif

Does this question really have to be asked every year? Just throw one in the truck to be sure, it's not that hard.

Anyone want to take any bets on when the next time this same question is asked? My guess is sometime in the next 2 weeks.

bradyd, sorry for the upsetting question. I wasn't truly asking whether or not I should bring an extension, I was just curious if they were typically needed by that time of year or not.

As this question seems to come up so much, why dont they just sticky a topic on the top of the page that just says, " YES YOU WILL NEED AN AUGER EXTENSION!!" then the question shouldnt get brought up as much.

No need to get upset guys. I was just stating the obvious.

      Went up north today with @eyeguy 54 and we found plenty of ice if the access would have been better we would have driven out. We fished hard as both of us have similar fishing styles. We jump hole to hole picking off the aggressive fish with plastics. The wind did not do us any favors but we still caught a good number of fish. If eyeguy took photos maybe he will post em. Thank you eyeguy for the call I wanted to get out fishing today.

      Went to a small lake up around Mille lacs lake and found 20-28 inches of ice. The access looked like some busted it up, so eyeguy and I walked out. We caught bluegills and crappies on plastics. It was windy and cold but we got a few nice ones.
