18 inch Crappie

It does not hurt to bring one if you have one, just incase. Never know with this cold weather we are having.

I just got back from up there and I would say the ice is in the low 30's inches. You can drill now without an extention still with most augers. I have a jiffy and I made it through fine with a little room to spare. If you are drilling in a perm house you may want to put on a extention, but if your drilling on the ice like with a portable your fine without one.

lindylittlejim-

Serious answer to the extension question- Don't need it yet. Another 10" of ice and you will. It was FREEZING COLD up there on Saturday so it might not be too long.

Was my first trip up to Red for the winter. Felt good to be back.
