with the extra snow might be wise to have it

I would agree, I was up in mid February and the ice was 33 inches. That was before all the snow. Without the extension we would have just barely made it through.

I have a strike master mag and I was up a week and a half ago before snow. I made it threw, but it was very close. Had to kick away slush on both side. I have ext. In glove box, but if I do not have to use it I don't. With out it I seem to drill faster. The motor is not eye level, so easier to hold on to. I know they say the proper way is to let machine do all the work, but some down force is needed. I did notice about 1/2 of foot difference of ice between a mile out from shore verses out on flats. I would say about 3' about a mile out and 2 1/2' out on flats. Still good ice and with snow insulating I do not know how much ice has been made in last week.

      I am definitely in! My boss also gave me permission to start looking at jet boats this spring. We have to get rid of a 3rd car first but I do believe a Lowe 1760 pathfinder with a 115/80 will also be in my future!

      Eskimo cs is top notch. I have had 2 different pop-ups and have a 949i now and love it. Wasn't overly impressed with the flip over pop-up at Cabela's though. It seemed to have less room out in front of you than the other flip over from clam and otter.

      I recently had a chance to go fishing with my friend who recently purchased a Vexilar fishfinder. However we find it incredibly difficult to identify fish in the Sonar image. We tried even the fish alarm under settings but it didn't work reliably, going off at times with nothing on the Sonar image that looked like fish.   Any tips of what we should be looking for in the Sonar image?

      Getting the 6" clam plate hopefully this week. Picked up a brush less 20v dewalt on sale for black Friday. After using moose's drill a couple times last year I am all in on the drill plate!
