    Any of you guys into ice fishing?

    K-Drill Electric Ice Auger System

    I have been looking for a new auger and I came across this and think I may try to buy one. The drill thing is appealing to me and it would be one less gas motor that I would have to maintain.

    They recommend the Milwaukee drills but I am very certain the Bosch 18v will do just as good of a job. Hoping to get one soon, so I can try it out.

    Better read it close Jim….. it says for redrilling holes.
    That beans you still have to make the first hole another way.

    Never thought about how they make the hole in the ice. How do they do that?

    We used something similar to this auger

    Do you get enough ice down your way for ice fishing Ron?
    I don’t know if we will get enough this year .
    I gave all my ice fishing gear away . I stay warm in the winters now.
    It used to be fun on Lake Erie. Can’t say I ever caught any amount of fish though.

    What does the end look like? Standard auger or more like a hole saw? I would think that it would shatter the ice if it was anything like an auger.

    the ice wouldn’t be as thick as it previously was. so you’d get away with an 18v but the initial hole you still need gas.

    Auger with two stainless blades, no screw point. I used a manual one though so I don’t know if the powered version is any different.

    Never used a gas one before, since I don’t drill that many holes a manual auger works fine.

    You go ice fishing to catch fish? I thought the point was to reconnect with my old friend Jack Daniels.

    Good reply Kurt. Ice fishing does nothing for me. Can’t relax when I’m cold.

    There’s the other rent-a-hut type, there are wood stoves to keep you toasty warm. It’s more of a local event though since the huts are all close together for a month or so.

    Not much ice fishing here. I can only remember a couple winters that the ice on my pond was thick enough to walk on.
    I did grow up in Colorado. And my Dads side of the family lived in North Dakota. So I did do a little ice fishing when I was younger.

    We have lots of fishing shows on Saturday mornings to watch and now many are about ice fishing. There are always advertisements for portable ice shanties that are available for sale. There are some with thermostat controlled heat, a small kitchen, and even beds. They have some ice vehicles set up that way too. Ice fishing can be a lot of fun. I have a good friend who guides ice fishing on the bay of Green Bay in the winter so I connect with him. His ice shanties are quite toasty. It is certainly not everyone’s cup of tea but is it very important to the ice belt folks in ND, MN and WI.

    Definitely a reason ice fishing is better than “summer” fishing.

    Now I’ve never been ice fishing but if I were to go ice fishing I would bring someone to bait my hook for me…

    Kinda sounds like deer camp which can be a lot of fun during deer season. .

    Gee,you guys aren’t summer fishing correctly then lol. My fishing gear/jug stays the same as in the summer too, the only difference is I have to keep it in the freezer rather than outside

    You all are funny!
    We went to lake Erie the first time and had no ice shanty. We carried our gear in a 5 gal bucket. It was really cold and the wind was blowing hard. We had walked a couple miles and not caught anything. Got up to try another spot and as soon as we stood up our buckets took off in the wind. We never saw them again!
