Just made it through without an extension last weekend. But we are blocked up pretty high.

Same thing here, we are up about 9 inches from the top of the floor to the ice and we just about hit the floor with the auger. We're bringing the extension just in case.

Heck no, the ice was only 25", but then the power auger wasn't working so all I had was my chisel and I chiseled my holes. One good thing was I could make my holes as big as I wanted!

I had more then 25" on anderson reef, needed the ext for the wheel house and one other went down to the power auger head in his portable on the reef next to us.

How hard is it to throw the extension in wherever you go this time of year. It takes up zero room and the piece of mind is worth it.

If you don't own one you have to buy one. That's usually the case with these posts.

      Well most people use a fish head or two in the trap as bait.  Any type of raw  meat will probably work well. No need to purge them as they are coming out of clean water. Just boil the whole crawdad in salt water or better yet in a Cajun mix! The tails are about the only part worth messing with. Cliff

      I live on Little Cormorant Lake, I believe sometime next week that it will be open.  The lakes out there are changing fast!

      we got a lot snow down in the twin cities than up north and temps are a lot higher than it was in 2013.   I think we will have enough open water to fish the opener.   No one needs to cancel!  I HOPE any way

      what do you use for bait?  I heard you can't use left over fish guts.   do you have to soak them?  sorry not sure what that process is called.

      meerkat, Many people eat the rusties. Very tasty but like walleye wings it takes a lot for a meal! Cliff

      I just got an e-mail from Brent Flatten in the Tower Fisheries Office stating that they hope to get the Dock in by Monday if the river clears of ice. Will set the trap nets on Tuesday and the first net lift will be on Wednesday. They may even collect eggs Wednesday if there are enough ripe females. Very good news! Thanks for your update Brent!

      I would imagine the man made pepin connected to the sippi is open not the actual lake pepin?
