Auger Extension

Recommended Posts

fishnfool

We will be fishing URL for the first time this coming March and were curious if we would need to get an auger extension for our Jiffy 10". If so how much of an extension would a guy need? Would 12" do the trick? Thanks for any help and we look forward to meeting some of you in March at the W.W.

I fished URL in March last year, and we were bottoming out the auger without an extension. Last year was an unseasonably warm winter, so I would think a 12" extension would work on a normal winter.

Last year was a mild winter. But there was no snow cover and the ice got thick. If there is normal snow cover you probably won't need an extension at all. They are nice to finish a hole but a little tough to start with if you are not tall or strong. I cann't imagine ever needing more than 12" unless you're drilling in a house.

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.

      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      Plastic PC is 3/4 x2 x3.5. Drilled shallow holes on the transom side for the adhesive to cling to. Pretty solid. Time will tell

      No shutoff needed. Take a photo of how you mounted your transducer Alex.

      Actually when I store the boat I take the unit off as well. Is it ok to have the power line just hanging out? Do I need a shut off switch?
