After years of faithful service my auger has started to act up. Under load it bogs out and I have to restart it. I've changed the plug and cleaned filter. Is there an adjustment somewhere on it?

Id guess its a fuel issue that might be fixed simply by replacing the gas with gas that has sea foam in it. The carbs probably getting mucked up.

Go to the post on this same forum on 1/14 called Ice Auger Carb Adjusments, lots of good info there. I am having the same problems and hoping their recommendations fix it.

FWIW, on my Jiffy, I started letting it warm up longer, and it make s ahuge difference for me, for the better. Since you have been using yours for a long time, I am sure you are familiar with running it, ubt just thought I would throw that out there for anybody else. I didn't really let mine warm up until reading about here. Now it works much better.

I also adjusted the carb screws "in the cold" rather than in the summer as I had in the past. That made a huge difference in how it ran. Thanks to the info found here!

      I have also worried about the quality of the bite...and the absence of perch. At least on the northwest side, anyways, where we almost never mark small perch anymore.  In years past, the best indicator of a soon-to-be big red mark on the Vex was that the small perch vacated the area.  I did see TONS of perch down on the south side this year, but I don't know how the numbers there compared to years past, either.   But yeah, the bite has been excellent for, what, three years now?  We're also catching a decent mix of fish (though of course most are from the 2013 year class).  The only good thing to mention, at least in my experience, is that the fish do look very healthy and fat, very unlike the fish during the "boom years" in the mid-2000's when everything you'd catch would be a skinny 26 incher.

      Bite has been non existent for us this weekend for pike...we fished out of springsteel yesterday one flag. We are out of warroad and no flags yet... We tried as shallow as 4ft, out in 11ft now.

      When I was a kid, I used to ask my dad to take me ice fishing--he would always say "wait 'till it gets warmer"......
