Ice Auger drilling contest


Recommended Posts

I have heard about an event in Northern MN that had an ice drilling contest. Does anyone know the results. I am looking for the fastest off the shelf auger.

On Sunday, Channel 5's Jason Davis hosted a half-hour program dedicated to ice fishing. He covered the Brainerd Jaycees contest, Leech's eelpout fest, and the Breezy Point/Pelican Lake "ice fishing olympics." The auger contest was featured in the "olympics" and an auger with a chainsaw power drive crushed in the "modified" category. You wouldn't believe how fast that thing cut a hole -- I would love to have one wink.gif

I took second place in the Stock division and my friend took second in the Mod division. All the reps. were up there from various companys. Yes, the reps did race there augers. Some didn't fair to well. I raced a Lazer Express and won a trophy and a Jiffy auger as a door prize. It was a awesome time up there.
So if anbody has any ideas about making a modified auger let's do it. I am a machinist and can modify any auger. It is the motor we would have to work on. That modified auger that too first place was awesome. Ice flying every where.

Spike.. You didn't happen to tape Jason Davis last week did you? My wife forgot to put a tape in the VCR.


1ST Pace
