As FOX came back from commercial break during the Packer game yesterday, they had footage of someone “checking the ice for fishing” in the Fox River. They filmed someone drilling a hole with a power auger. Was that any of you guys?
People from warmer states get a huge kick out of the fact that we own gas-powered augers. I had a conversation about ice fishing with a colleague who lived in Phoenix a number of years ago. He asked how thick the ice got in WI. I told him usually one to two feet on an average winter. He asked how tired we got drilling through that. I said, “not at all, we use power augers”. He said, “You have a gasoline powered ice auger?” I said, “Yeah, doesn’t everyone?”
