Groundhog Disc?

6 posts in this topic

I just saw an ad for the groundhog disc. It looks like it is a narrow disk, about the width of a 4 wheeler. It mounts on the receiver, and is pushed into the dirt by the weight of the ATV and rider.

Has anyone used one of these? Comments?

I am rather intrigued....

I have seen both good and bad reports on it. No surprise on that I guess.

The one thing to watch out for is areas that might have rocks. I guess thats a really bad thing for this type of disc.

The good thing about it is that you can really crank up the speed, and the faster you go, the better the soil will get worked up. BUT, going faster means when you hit something,,,, hold on....

I can see the problems with rock. It just looks so slick for tight spots, and with the weight over the top it looks like the bite would be pretty good.

when I saw it at fleet farm I thought the price was going to be under $200. there isn't much to it - pretty small. When I saw the price (i think it was $400) i started looking around for more pieces. i couldn't believe it.

That does sound a bit pricey. I got my Quadivator for $500 but I found a used one on CraigsList.

Of course I haven't used it yet since we found someone with a tractor who did some planting for us. Probably try it out around Labor Day.

If it works well, I won't mind the price so much1

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.

      What kind of hand auger and shape is it in

      Heard island lake was a hot spot. Any lure that resembles a small foot should work well.

      I'd go with 112 if you have the room more power and I believe last longer on the water. I pilot is worth it. Spot lock to fan cast an area or to stay outside the dock that you just got broke off of are two benifits. I pilot link links up with your hummingbird unit if that's what you have for a depth finder. Let's you follow depth contours. Good luck with the purchases

      sure odd to see the timberwolves mentioned in trade possibilities with the likes of a Kyrie Irving.

      I just dont believe that to be a Esox bite at all. Too much space between the Major wounds, IMHO!
    • delcecchi
      That is a strong possibility...

      Here is a photo of the foot.  Looks like a toothy gator.

      http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/07/21/fish-injury-island-lake/   DULUTH, Minn. (AP) — An 11-year-old girl has undergone surgery to repair damage to her foot which might have been caused by a fish in a northeastern Minnesota lake. Maren Kesselhon suffered nine deep lacerations and tendon damage when she was injured while sitting on a paddleboard on Island Lake north of Duluth Wednesday. Maren’s dad, Ryan Kesselhorn, says his daughter told him she could feel her foot in the mouth of a fish and kicked at it with her other foot to free herself. The Dickinson Press reports doctors at Essentia Health, where Maren had surgery, say the razor-sharp cuts, some down to the bone, probably were caused by a fish. Island Lake is home to large muskies and northern pike. A Duluth fisherman caught and released a 47-inch long muskie Wednesday.
