Just made it through without an extension last weekend. But we are blocked up pretty high.

Same thing here, we are up about 9 inches from the top of the floor to the ice and we just about hit the floor with the auger. We're bringing the extension just in case.

Heck no, the ice was only 25", but then the power auger wasn't working so all I had was my chisel and I chiseled my holes. One good thing was I could make my holes as big as I wanted!

I had more then 25" on anderson reef, needed the ext for the wheel house and one other went down to the power auger head in his portable on the reef next to us.

How hard is it to throw the extension in wherever you go this time of year. It takes up zero room and the piece of mind is worth it.

If you don't own one you have to buy one. That's usually the case with these posts.

      Thanks for all the replies, we just ended up driving home (Duluth). Sorry I wasn't very specific on dates - we went up yesterday. Tried calling Pike Bay to no avail.    Hit the edge of a small reef and fished the rocks, transition, and sand. Two very small walleye were all we connected with.   Would have been nice to stay for the night bite, but got up early and did some trout fishing in the Duluth area this morning.   Tight lines.

      Smoked 8  up this weekend and really better than I thought they would be.  fillet fish leave skin on for brine 1/2 cup noniodine salt 1 cup sugar 1 qt water brine overnight rinse, pat dry and let sit out for an hour or so.  sprinkle with a seasoning if you like. I did lemon pepper on a couple and seafood magic on a couple.  have smoker heated to 200 put in smoked with a little cherry wood smoke 1 hour and done.  should be about 155 degrees internal.  nom nom nom ! ! !

      I have a BIL that lives south of there a bit. He says carnelian has lots of springs in it and wouldn't drive out there for no amount of money.

      Out on the north end. 8", 15" and a 24" over night. I've lost about 8 so far off rattles. Not sure if I'm not getting a good hookset or what. I've tried horsing them in and babying... headshakes are dislodging the hooks.   any advise? I'd have 12 on the board had I not missed any!
