Ice & Snow conditions

7 posts in this topic

Hello to all!

Thinking of heading up thursday with the brother-in-law. We hope to beat the deep freeze.

Could any one tell me if we need to use an extension yet, and also how much of the white stuff has accumulated on the ice?

Also, should a guy try to double dip, and hook up a live decoy for the pike, or are the crappies out to deep?

Better check your regs; I don't think the DNR allows the use of auger extensions on URL.

Seriously though, you don't need an extension yet.

If you followed the forums you would know that asking if you need an extension is a very common question asked in jest more often tan not and one we joke about all the time.

If you haven't followed the forums and are indeed not joking yourself then we certainly do not intend to offend. It's all in fun.

yum yum, you are correct, this law was passed after numerous anglers, after not properly bolting the extensions onto the augers, lost them in one certain are of the lake causing sort of an effect like stumps would on a lower unit, but much worse. Ever since then, no extensions have been allowed on Upper Red Lake. Id go to the dealer and see if they have an auger stretcher.

You guys are funny!

It's a little early for an extension.

It doesn't hurt to make it a habit of bringing one with you though.

Just when you think you don't need one is when you will.

get a longer auger

or

drill as deep as your auger will go, then pour some antifreeze/draino mixture in the bottom of the hole and it will quickly eat its way through. Oh, but DON'T let the DNR catch ya pouring antifreeze and draino in the lake. The fine for that is much higher than the fine for using an auger extension.
