Thanks in advance from the New Guy and Ice Fishing Novice

I guess it depends on how much it has been used, but more importantly the price they're asking....It's a good auger with a powerful Tecumseh.....I'm a Strikemaster guy!

i like strikemaster too. i have the 8" model good one. i had to down grade to a lazer hand for weight try to pull a sled with alot of gear. so i made it little lite and very easy to pull along. oh btw did u see the newest models out yet no more mixing oil and gas the 4 stroke engine they r cool. they recommed do not use e-85 u will blow the motor.

what did on my hand lazer auger was took the smooth edge blades off that came with it replaced them with lazer power auger blades with teeth i got better cutting power on a hand auger they dont dull as fast as smooth edge.

Give the crew at Reel Fishing and Tackle a call. They have great deals on re-conditioned Strike Master augers that come with a full warranty.

          Probably fishing Blue Lake ... or green lake, I have caught my biggest crappies around Opening weekend.  Might give a cast or three for some walleyes but love to fish Bass now, super fun catching those big ones!!   I am mostly a catch n release guy but like a good pan fish meal and looking at getting a smoker!!  Bass ... always catch n release, especially in our metro lakes to keep fishing good.  Was shocked how many people were keeping bass in a local small lake last fall!!  Doesn't take long to wipe out a small body of water.  Some fisherman think they have to keep everything they catch!!  most phones have a good camera on them ... take a pic and release for good fishing future.   Again, its OK to have a meal ... just know what, where, and your species of fish and how spawn and body of water applies to the lake size, ect...    Cret

      Thanks, I'm excited about it too. I've fished those lakes and know for a fact that the existing maps are at best incomplete, and occasionally plain wrong. So I'm really looking forward to seeing what the data shows.

      Not sure about KAXE , but WEVE from Virginia comes in. They are so bad, they are almost good! Their tag line was "Not too hard, and not too soft" to which I add "and not too good" If you want to hear schmaltzy drek from the 80's then tune in.

      Very cool project.  I just got back from up there, and I'll be up again on another solo the first week of May.  I'll check back if I decide to enter near Ely.

      Eyeguy - what size weight are you using at the Miss?  Are you using a bullet weight and a worm hook to hold your crawler?   Cret
