Jiffy or Strikemaster?

3 posts in this topic

Which is a better auger? Jiffys cost more but are better built (steel handle compared to plastic) I feel Jiffys turn too fast though, ones ive seen have problems breaking through bottom of ice. My father had a 3 horse jiffy for 20 years and it has never been right, some days it runs good some it doesnt. Carb and ignition have been replaced but no change. Taken it in to many shops and it comes back running good but doesnt last long then back to same old poor running thing, always starts but never really gets going. He bought a 2000 strikemaster 2 weeks ago and broke the handle 1st weekend. I have a mag III strikemaster but it through a rod bearing last night.

I know everyone is going to tell me to buy a nils but I dont think so.

The new Jiffy STX Pro turns slower than the older ones but it cuts through the ice better and faster.

      Much different lake from a week ago. Snow on shores and ice in reeds. Water temps were down quite a bit. 42 in main lake 45 in shallow bays. Had a few followers on spinner baits but no hits.

      Went fishing for a couple hours yesterday. Water temp was 48-50. It was a nice day to be out on the water. My arms and neck are a lovely shade of red to prove it. Make sure you're smarter than me and toss a tube of sunscreen in the tackle box before you head out.

      Smoked up 4 for a test and really good!  Quite different than the crappies. Nice and oily and the skin peels right off. Scales are pretty big so a bit of a mess but easy peasy.

      I attended an event Saturday out of Everts. Eye bite was really slow for the 20 boats but a few nice fish were caught. Got into a buncha white bass at the end of the day and it was game on.   Brined some overnight and smoked em up to try them. We thru cranks and swim baits all day.
