best auger for reopening holes

6 posts in this topic

I was wondering if one auger is better at opening holes that have been froze over for several days

I would get something with a chipper blade, rather then a lazer blade.

I would agree that a chipper blade is a good option.

I'll third the chipper blade. There are several models of auger with a chipper style blade. I believe Strikemaster, Jiffy, and Eskimo have models with chipper blades.

      I crossed over to the dark side of smallies about 15 years ago. Mostly chase pannies in winter but used to chase eyes a few times on the hard water each season.   I could post a ton of pics if you need more proof.

      I was up over the weekend and my shoreline was getting pretty sketchy.  Had a pocket of open water down the shore about a 100 yards. Where I could see the bottom in two to three feet of water.  Walked out about a hundred yards and popped four holes Saturday afternoon. There was 17- 18.5"s of ice in those four holes. Looking at the forecast I can't see the ice sticking around too much longer.  The holes I popped had 5-6" of pretty mushy cloudy stuff on top and about 12"s of pretty solid stuff underneath it.
