Best Auger for making Spear Fishing Hole

Question

doc

I am looking at getting a new Ice Auger for making a spear fishing hole. Concerns are how well it will overlap without skipping out.

Any opinions on what type works best. I was thinking about a Lazer Mag with the double blade. I see they make 3 and 4 blade models as well. Would they work better?

Surface Tension

If you go with an auger that has a center point it'll help with the kick out. Have you looked at the ice saws? http://fishingminnesota.com/icesaw.html

Drill 2 holes kitty corner from each other and start sawing.

Its less work then the chiseling you'll have to do to clean the up the holes you drilled.

I will second that. I bought an Ice Saw a few years ago. Friend of mine told me about them amazing tool. Just so you know I am not affiliated with them in anyway when I say that.

As a professional trapper I trap beaver under the ice and used to use a chisel or chain saw. Not anymore{unless ice is thin} Now I just auger a hole or two and start sawing. It's fast and it cuts ice like butter. Don't know how many holes I cut with it but I have never touched it up yet.

Try one you wont be un-happy with it. Lots of spear guys are buying them. Amazing tool.

      Went for a short hunt yesterday morning. Heard a few gobbling on the roost on the neighbors land. They did not come my way and did not make any sounds once they flew down. It was great to be in the blind with the bow again. I am always amazed how loud the spring woods are. Every bird in the country was going crazy. Ducks, geese, crows, woodpeckers... music to my ears! Might get out again Sunday afternoon with my son and then myself Monday morning depending if we see anything Sunday....

      I have to admit I never heard of it.  I will certainly give it a try.  I am surprised by the number of people that haven't done the cheeks before.  This will really get em.  Thanks.

      I heard back from Michael Schwanke a guide working out of Crane Lake that I have known for several years. I told him we are heading up on May 17th. He said it will be close real close. I depends on the night temps need to remain over freezing.....we will keep fingers crossed for a week or two and then decide what to do.

      Sounds like a blast!  My time has shifted to turkey hynting prep.  So it looks like I'm done despite good ice conditions.  But I'm a bit jealous of you all.

      Went up to Knife lake today to see if i could find some slab crappies. After drilling countless holes and only 1 crappie to show for it was thinking about packing it in. Then i notice a mark 1ft under the ice, bam a nice 12in slab. fished 2:45-8pm, bite was good 6:30-8.  Caught a good amount of crappies, key was to be 6-8ft of water and most fish were 1-4ft down. All crappies were released, with how hard this lake gets its nice to see there's still slabs in there and wish the DNR would put a 5 crappie limit on the lake, even down to 3 would be great.
