    what is everyone using to drill a hole run frozen/hard ground? I've tried the root hammer bit for the poles and FB stakes as well with minimum luck, not at all actually. I was wondering about the old style wood auger bits. Thanks for any help.

    Yea we go old school
    Dig by hand with shovel
    Throw the mojo in the hole and cover it up

    keep the pole for a walking stick

    Have someone weld up a folding tripod stand for you.

    Lots of guys use a drill to get stakes in
    I’m sure that would work just have to bore it a little

    but great idea on the tripod

    or buy the floater and set it on the ground

    I actually have two fold up stands I made for the river that work slick. I made a bunch of poles out of 1/2" heavy wall at different heights, just thought someone else had this problem.
