    Plan Your Success

    A positive attitude is all I need for a successful trip. I have had horrible days for catching but the day was successful as I learned a lot from those trips. It’s all on how you look at it @Matt Johnson . On one of my most successful trips I never put a line in the water myself but I focused on my nephew. He caught piles of tiny gills and now loves ice fishing that was one of my favorite trips of all time.

    Thick ice, go to auger gas or cordless

    That could be but rick sure could cut a lot of holes with that 9 then.

    Leech I told you I drill through thick ice with my drill I averaged 40-45 holes per battery with over 36 inches of ice. @eyeguy 54 wasn’t it close 42 inches on osakis last winter.

    My dewalt has been working for 3 or 4 years and over 6000 holes cut with it. It’s still going strong. I have a brushed drill but it’s the top end drill. I also run the clam plate.

    I was fishing late ice on lake Osakis with rick g Eyeguy Icehawk and we all used the drill augers. None of us ran out of juice and the ice was over 36 inches thick. I will say having the big amp hour batteries is awesome. We had a k drill nils lazer and clam auger out there. I will not use my gas auger ever again.

    What Is Your Favorite Ice Fishing Fishfinder In 2018?

    I still run my fl8 that I bought in 1996. I don’t need zoom and I have watched many friends with the new fancy locators not see fish under the ice. Not me I catch em. No stinking updates for my fl 8 and my fl 8 has fallen down the stairs more times then me. It still runs I had new brushes put in after I fell on it and smashed the casing. O yeah i fished all day with the smashed casing let’s see the new units do that. It’s fixedand runs perfect. Never notice the noise you guys are talking about as I am to busy catching fish!

    M18 Brushless For Auger Help

    With huge batteries that have come out in the last year or two gas augers will go away. I run 12 amp hour batteries and have some 3 amp hours for back up but I have yet to burn through both 12 amp batteries. I love my clam plate because you set it down like a normal auger and the drill stays off the ice.

    M18 Brushless For Auger Help

    I really like my clam plate and have been running it for years now. Make sure to buy the extension otherwise it’s super short. You can order directly from clam.
