You will most likely need an auger extension.

An extension may not always be necessary on Upper Red Lake but sure is handy when it is needed. Upper Red Lake ice cover may vary in thickness drastically from one spot to the next. You could be on perfect “ 24 inch pond ice” or you may land on 40 inches plus of stacked pile ice from the wind that shows no signs of its thickness on the surface.

Also with the snow cover you may not only have to go through thick ice but may also have to compensate for 6-12” of hard packed snow or frozen slush in places.

With all that is packed into the trucks and wheelhouse that head onto Upper Red Lake an auger extension is a small and fairly inexpensive item to add to the checklist before heading out. It just may save you from the embarrassment of being the guy that has all the latest gear but skimped on the auger extension and has to beg the neighbors to a have his holes drilled out.

Thanks and Good Luck.
