Haha, Z is always right.
Never, ever agree with Zman or tell him he is right unless you qualify it with something like, "even a blind dog finds a bone occasionally".

I'm not really an ice fisherman..................but I do know that it would break my heart to lose a trophy class fish because I drilled too small a hole. I say.........go big or go home. :)

I was fishing Green Mtn. last year and saw a guy step in a 10" hole, when he pulled his foot out the boot went 180' to the bottom. That was the fastest I have ever seen anybody run off the lake in a sock.

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...
You missed a good walleye dinner, a chance to fish with bernie for free and a 250+ rod a reel for that last night?

Whether fishing for free with Bernie is a good thing or not depends...
