Since you will not be 'runnin and gunnin' around the lake and simply want to set tipups; a hand auger will work fine. Obviously it is easier with a gas auger, but not entirely necessary.

Used to have an 8" Lazer hand auger and loved it.

Should work, just make sure you have sharp blades.

I have used an ice auger the past three seasons and have used it from 8" of ice up to 28" of ice. Is it work, yes, but warms you up. Do you run and gun, not but sometimes that isn't what it is about. I recently purchased a used power auger and think it will make it more convienant but I think starting with a hand auger helped me learn I wanted to get more into ice fishing

    • No dave.   Quite sure i'm aware of the equipment I was born with..   And how to use it..
    • Enter Governor smith..   Non-elected by design.   She couldn't win an election for dog catcher, let alone Governor..   Did anyone really believe sickly mark dayton could/would finish his term ??    
    • Trump made good on one of his core campaign promises. Leaders from each of the major trade unions applauded the withdrawal from TPP. Leaders representing Teamsters, Laborers', Sheet metal workers',  Carpenters, Plumbers, Pipefitters, Welders and others. The union meeting also included several local union officials. Labor chiefs described their meeting with D.T. as "incredible".. A great step towards revitalizing the U.S building trades and manufacturing economy.   (These are unions that endorsed hillary....)   Trump also told labor union leaders that he would renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement "at the appropriate time.

    • Brit Hume is now a "Trump supporter" ??     Doh-Kay...    
    • Or..... The Russians.
    • Stay classy. 
    • Withdrawing from the TPP could have the effect of giving countries like China a bigger hand in the world economy over the US.   Or withdrawing from TPP could have absolutely no effect on anything whatsoever
    • If you can't figure out why Trump goes after the media I can't help you.  I've explained plenty of times why I don't answer questions from the good ol boys club.  Yet you keep asking them......sounds like something a tool would do.     #hypocritesandfrauds
