I often wonder what kind of a fish you are catching in Ontario that you would need a 10 inch hole for ? 

20-30 lb lake trout

Don't be stupid, watch where your going, and you should survive.

Im surprised no one here is talking about the YouTube sensation this ice season that is cutting out 6x6 holes in the ice.

i don’t think this is talking about holes that you have drilled, it’s talking about the guys cutting out sight fishing holes on lakes.

uncut angling and jay siemens have been cutting huge holes this year and it’s a bit of a troubling trend because although those guys are responsible and are making their holes very well and making disclaimers in the videos to ensure you mark your holes, you just know that some idiot is going to Watch YouTube and then go out right off the access on cooks bay and cut an 8x8 hole in the ice and not mark it. 
 

the hole will skim over with a thin layer of snow and some poor bugger is going to fall right into it...I can already see it coming

I recall going camping with my parents back in the early sixties, enjoyed getting ice for the cooler cause it was cut from the lake and stored in a log building covered in sawdust. Must have lost a lot of people down the massive holes that were left from that operation 🤣.

They harvest a crap load of ice for the Snow Kings Castle every year here.

These are for windows in the castle.

They fence off the hole when they are done harvesting.

These are for the big ice carving contest during the winter/spring carnival.

My dad still does this with iceberg ice. Always has a stockpile covered in saw dust.
