That makes it a little tough to be mobile. I don't think I would be drilling 60 holes a day trying to find fish. That's just crazy.

I believe they add on as they need the extensions.

This is pretty funny, however, not real. You can tell by the lack of slush around the hole. If they drilled through 10' there would be a significant amount. wink.gif

Where do we go to buy that auger from the second video. That thing is quick. Better have some cleats on your boots dealing with that piece of equipment.

The way they start with that tall one is they have a guy stand on the top of the truck and then move down to the bed and keep stepping down until they are on the ice. Yeah I think I would find it pretty hard to be mobile in a situation like that.

It's real....obviously they are not drilling through 10' I'd say about 3 and they add the extensions as the go.

      Based on Cliff's water temp of 38°F, I'm not too sure about Dec. 3-5.  Think it will be more like Dec. 7-9.  I have ice fever and I need a cure.  Last year's first ice PB of 29", 8½# shown below would definitely cure that, but it may not be until Dec. 15-16 now.

      Hey all,   I'm sure everyone has heard, but we're finally getting some nice freezing weather heading in from up north (https://weather.com/weather/tenday/l/56303:4:US). Early next week nightly lows will be sub 10's. So with ice season quickly approaching, I'd like to know what everyone usually does getting prepared to walk on water. As a newbie to ice fishing (only done it the last two seasons), I'm curious to see how everyone preps their gear and what other things you all do before going out on the ice. I finally got my hands on a nice flasher and power auger to add to the rest of my gear, any suggestions for nifty equipment to help make things easier?    This is open for any discussion on any ice fishing tips for newer fishers! Please feel free to ask questions or discuss your prep process for the season. Let's all hope for this forecast to follow through and get some good ice out there.    -JK

      Forecast temperature-wise looks favorable for ice mid- to late-next week, but it does not look like the winds are going to cooperate.

      Would be nice to get some ice that's for sure. No doubt these forums have gone cold. 5-6 years ago there would be dozens of posts daily just on this thread. Maybe the newness of these forums has wore off or because everything has been hashed over a couple hundred times I don't know. I'm ready for some ice fishing I know that.
