I was out front of Izatys last weekend and the auger was all the way down, barely breaking through. I would bring the extension.

Why wouldnt you always bring an extension. There is really no reason not to bring one along just in case.

I have a good reason not to bring one along... I don't own one. I will by tomorrow though.

I agree. Bring one. We were on 4 and 5 mile and some places we were buried and other places we had room to spare. Bring one just in case.

      with the current weather and the forcast for next week, we should have great ice by next weekend. be safe out there this weekend, ice just took hold on smaller lakes, the wind has kept things uneven.

      Down visiting in southern WI with family and our neighbors just watched someone go through ice and drown on a small lake near Lake Geneva. Everyone please be careful when checking ice!

      ok, but waste not want not is how I was raised.  I also know what you mean by thinning the heard!

      Has anybody gotten a look at area lakes? Any of them locked up yet ? A buddy said he seen a couple guys a little ways out on Bakers Bay and a couple guys on Eagle. Seems a little crazy to me. There can't be much more than an inch or two. Maybe a little more on Eagle since its shallower.
