I was up this past Sunday and as luck would have it I forgot to take my extention. Thank god I didn't need it but my back sure wishes I did. I was all the way down to the ice without it. My advise....Pack extention the night before!!

Yep,

Out there no extention meant no fishing. Ice depth ran 45-48" in the areas we fished this weekend.

We were fishing near a heave and it took two 12 inch extentions to get through in some areas

Thats another reason I like my Nils auger. The 48 inch shaft can go through about anything. smile.gif

      I remember you jabbering something about smoking some crappies at the GTG but I don't hear the best so I thought-What? They look Great!

        So no help here it looks like. How did it end up going? Did you find a fix?. Suk's to be stranded.

      How's the snow on the lake?  Can you still get around on snowmobile or is the slush getting bad?  Thanks for any info.

      I don't have an axe to grind with The Landing (and I don't honk anyone on this forum does either)- I went there a few times last summer and the food was good, they had an ample beer selection, and the service was friendly- all of those things I'm willing to pay for.   We had another couple up staying the weekend at our cabin and brought them to The Landing and had a terrific time, looking forward to making it back there again!   And more importantly, can't wait for the ice to get off the lake!!
