Hope you got extra blades for your auger.... That stuff eats up blades.

Georgetown is always the first to freeze and thaw usually. It'll be safe and Super thick till march.

Georgetown also has the dirtiest, sandiest ice around and it chews up auger blades real quick. That is the main reason not many folks here venture there, gets expensive replacing auger blades for put and take stockers.

Not to mention officers gulch and the copper mtn ponds is better for that type of fishing IMO.

It all depends how you use it, where you use it and how many times it's used. If you bang it around in a truck bed or bang it around on the ice that will ruin it quick. If you sit and push hard on the auger while drilling that will ruin them fast, let the auger do the cutting! I've had blades last between 35-50 trips with up to 50-60 holes per trip. You can find the old timers that sharpen saw blades, knives and the such can sharpen them for you. There use to be one on 70th east of Pecos, not sure if he is still there.
