Hello to all!

Thinking of heading up thursday with the brother-in-law. We hope to beat the deep freeze.

Could any one tell me if we need to use an extension yet, and also how much of the white stuff has accumulated on the ice?

Also, should a guy try to double dip, and hook up a live decoy for the pike, or are the crappies out to deep?

Better check your regs; I don't think the DNR allows the use of auger extensions on URL.

Seriously though, you don't need an extension yet.

If you followed the forums you would know that asking if you need an extension is a very common question asked in jest more often tan not and one we joke about all the time.

If you haven't followed the forums and are indeed not joking yourself then we certainly do not intend to offend. It's all in fun.

yum yum, you are correct, this law was passed after numerous anglers, after not properly bolting the extensions onto the augers, lost them in one certain are of the lake causing sort of an effect like stumps would on a lower unit, but much worse. Ever since then, no extensions have been allowed on Upper Red Lake. Id go to the dealer and see if they have an auger stretcher.

You guys are funny!

It's a little early for an extension.

It doesn't hurt to make it a habit of bringing one with you though.

Just when you think you don't need one is when you will.

get a longer auger

or

drill as deep as your auger will go, then pour some antifreeze/draino mixture in the bottom of the hole and it will quickly eat its way through. Oh, but DON'T let the DNR catch ya pouring antifreeze and draino in the lake. The fine for that is much higher than the fine for using an auger extension.

      I have read this also.  I picked up 2 of the Honda 2200's and the parallel kit when we bought ours this spring.  Haven't had the chance to use it yet 🤔

      Was up last week on Kab and it seemed that your bait depended on where you were fishing. Some areas leeches did good, but others minnows were the go to. We lindy rigged the entire trip and on days when wind was gusty we did pretty good shallower with minnows in 13 to 20 ft....then some areas we were doing better with leeches 16 to 32 ft. No wind was like the dead sea.

      catch and eat the crawfish too!!!

      I can second A Warrior.  Jumbo leeches for Walleye.  Northern were more interested in minnows and crawlers.

      A Carp Anglers Group Fishing social will be on June 23rd in Coon Rapids. If you enter the park from the Coon Rapids side (Egret Blvd), take a left from the parking lot and drive towards the picnic shelters. Take a right at the first stop sign and park in the lot. We will be fishing in the stretch or river behind the picnic shelter/playground. Start time can be before 7am and you can fish into the evening if you want. There will be medals for the 3 largest fish captured.

      Thanks for lots of good info guys.  Sounds like if I do things right I can have fish for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I'll try fishing that reef for some evening walleye. Bobber fish for some sunnies in the weeds.  @delcecchi, I catch enough Walleye in the summer that I really don't want to ask. I won't shy away from a bite. I'll check that little bay for crappies.  @vermilionfox, Wow that is a lot of location data. My PROP thanks you for the rock info!  Merry Go Round? I have another question regarding the Rusty Crawfish... are they a problem on the west side of the lake too? Bloody mini lobsters. I remember spending lots of time using orange for bass and walleye since they were a major food source. Been years since I've done that.  Gone Out Fishin

      I don't think you will be able to run it on that generator. I have a yamaha 2000 and I have not tried it yet but from everything I have read you need 2800 watts to start the AC. All the 2018 ice castle fish houses are coleman mach 3 plus AC I think.

      The fishing was pretty decent over the weekend.  Walleyes were biting on rigs with leeches or crawlers. Caught 12 between Friday and Saturday with with 4 nice slotters.   Biggest being a 24".

      Star Island in Cass Lake has remote, boat in primitive camping as well.

      Just returned from a successful trip on Kab.  Minnows did catch fish, but leeches were the ticket
