Best Auger for Spear Fishing hole.

5 posts in this topic

I am looking at getting a new Ice Auger for making a spear fishing hole. Concerns are how well it will overlap without skipping out.

Any opinions on what type works best. I was thinking about a Lazer Mag with the double blade. I see they make 3 and 4 blade models as well. Would they work better?

Doc,

If you get an ice saw, it wouldn't really matter. Check out the fishing equipment in the red bar at the top of the forum page. You could buy a hand auger for $35 and an ice saw for $75 and be $250 ahead in the game, plus I'm sure that even with a hand auger and the ice saw, you could beat someone in a race that's using a power auger even in 24" of ice. grin.gif

Hey Doc- Did you get a deer this season? I had it all set up for you to hunt on our and neighbors land, but didn't hear from you...Plenty of ice up here- I have heard most spots around 10" or so. The lake across the road from us is a good spearing lake. Let me know if you need directions-there are some pigs in there. Happy Holidays! 8-Ball.

Hey 8-Ball, The Deer hunting was a sad story I will tell you later. Were heading up to your area the weekend after New Years to do some ice fishing. Get my AOL Email from Oly and I will give you the details.

Hope all is well.

Merry Christmas!

      I'll be out this wknd and got 3 spots to try out so still debating which one will be the ticket. The past couple weeks I've been getting some while crappie fishing.  Going to be shore fishing so FYI the water level is pretty high right now with all the rain from few weeks ago. A wader would be handy if you have one.  Good luck n be safe out there.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.

      yepper, almost 30 between the 2 of us in the slack water next to fast water. kinda hard to fish in that fast water when it's moving so fast...

      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.
