Default Kind of interesting tonight...Bernie was asked about auger hole size tonight...

He uses an 8 inch power auger...and has gotten some pretty big fish through the ice...before I left I remember him telling a story of big fish at Granby coming through a six hole that I remembered him saying he witnessed...he said it was the state record at one time...37 pounds...and came through a 6 inch hole...he goes with the 8 cuz it cuts quicker, uses less gas and is lighter weight...plus you wont snap your leg off in one...

I used an 8" all last winter. This year I'm going back to a 10". The difficulty with a smaller diameter hole is getting a big fish's head turned up into it. It's just easier with the larger diameter hole.

Yes, size does matter.
