  • Auger extension for Lake Louise?

    Does anyone know if i will need an extension for my auger? Probably a good idea for sure but has anyone been out there lately? I'm heading up there on the 18th and I would rather not buy one if I won't use it.

    Thanks

    I'm pretty sure Lake Louise has been just as cold as it has been here in Fairbanks lately. I went out to a lake last weekend and did not need one, but I was fishing in a portable Ice Hut. If you have a Ice Shanty, then I would probably recommend getting one for the extra length drilling the holes inside of one.

    You know your not catching any fish when you start talking about the weather...

      You will most likely never need an extension for LL even know the temps stay a constant -25 all winter long. LL has a network of running water, both in and out of it. The ice thickness is usually 26"-34"s. Good luck!

          I would say just go out and get one. You never know when mother nature is going to throw you for a loop; especially here in AK.

            I agree, fork out the $20 El Cheapo!!!

            My auger will drill through 42" of ice without an extension but I needed to use an extension a couple of times last year.
