true. sometimes I do the same, sometimes I dont and dont have to have 2 holes if I dont want . I have to drill 1/3 more holes. If im hole hopping I may not want that...anyway...probably depends on what OP is fishing for. To me, 8" is great for panfish up to walleye. I could see where a 10" hole would be more room to direct the head of a salmon or larger fish. a fish filling a 10" hole is a big fish!!

Walleye and crappies are pretty easy to get them started up a hole but pike and lake trout are not.they keep darting sideways on you.Can see them going by.

I find a long rectangular hole, gives one the most room to maneuver a fish up thru the hole.

I have a 10" Jiffy Model 30 I've used for years. I bought a 8" Strikemaster 24v this year, and what a difference. 14lbs, and it drills for days. I opted for the 8" vs the 6". Only 1lb more in weight, and I prefer the larger hole for having my transducer in the hole. I pulled a 34" musky through the hole the other day, and it filled it up!
