Ice conditions?

If you are talking about Devils Lake you do not need an extension.

How much ice is there on the lake? Heading up in a couple weeks and wondering if I need to bring an auger extension.

Not to be a smart guy, but why wouldn't you bring an extension with you if you have one? The ice is borderline for extensions so why not have it along in case you need it. We bring extra fishing poles in case we need them..

I was out last friday, and trust me, bring an extension, you dont need it that bad, but its right up to the moter mounts so you might as well put it on and not have to worry about getting water in the motor and freezing it up.

I always bring mine with, but my buddy might be coming with and he doesn't have an extension for his auger. He has been meaning to get one so I figured I would check the forum to see if he needs to get one before the trip out there. Thanks for the info!

What... No guts no glory!!!

Just put Viagra in your gas!!! You'll get a couple of extra inches on the old auger.

Jiffy or Strikemaster?

I better stop, I've been in meetings in Bismarck for two straight days and am feeling a bit goofy.

    • You know Dave if you wouldn't have bought an over priced pellet grill you could have had lobster with steak chunks instead of shrimp sausage! 😉
    • I checked the same area today but no luck. It could be someone else's honey hole or just a loner. I will keep looking! I enjoy the search, harvest and eating of mushrooms. I wish I would have found this hobby earlier in life!
    • Listened to my alarm this morning and went back to the rush. This time I went to an access point farther downstream. I found out that nothing gets your heart pumping in the morning like almost stepping on a baby deer! Little guy waited until the absolute last second to pop up and run away. Grass was only about a foot high, but I would have never seen him even if I was looking for him. Action was pretty slow, only caught 4 brownies. Lost a few others. This “new” spot has some potential. Looked like some promising spots farther downstream, that I just didn’t have the motivation to explore today.
    • Shrimp boil on my overpriced pellet grill up at the camper.  
    • I was out there New year's Eve and the day before just west of Birch Island and it was very slow (AND COLD!) 
    • That sounds all fine and dandy, but it is NOT the way it works... MOREL 101--If it was that easy there would be morel farms. I picked 7+ pounds today in 2 hours, 95% were within 50 yds of each other. All were probably from the same organism that 'lives' under the surface, when it is damaged from a disturbance in the soil AND it's symbiotic 'friend' (tree) is killed, the massive organism produces fruits (morels). The ones you leave behind simply dry up and sprinkling spores all over the country side is not going to make them grow everywhere. I know why my spots are only good for a year, wouldn't matter if any shrooms were harvested or not. I already know where I will be picking them next year!! I've developed a successful pattern😉 P.S. if anybody wants any I have filled my orders and have a fridge full again.
    • From the little bit I’ve researched morel harvesting, back when I actually DID hunt them, the common advice was to not over-harvest a spot, cut with a knife above the ground, and carry in a mesh bag so spores can disperse a little while you’re hauling them out of the woods.   It always seemed to make sense to me.
    • Congrats Minky!     I’m at a small lake in da middle of nowhere and haven’t had time to look and hardly enough signal to even view the forums. 😊
