Well sir its what you have so I'll say yes.  Not sure where you are but lots of guy fish eyes with 6" holes.


I use a 9 " hole but If I only had a 5" I'd be fishing it.

Id get a good pair of landing gloves to go with a hole that small because theres not gonna be much chance to get your hand in the gills you gotta grab the teeth

Depends where you fish... I fish Green Bay And I use a 10" auger... I love 10" for jigging and tipups.. Doesn't freeze as fast and much easier to get big fish through the hole... Now that being said I know a guy who squeezed a 13 pound walleye through a 6" hole a couple years ago.. So it can be done
