Strikemaster auger hop

4 posts in this topic

Tried drilling holes today and nothing but the hop I've seen others discuss here.

I had a problem with the last hole I drilled a few day back but thought nothing of it. Just finished it off with the Mora hand held.

I don't recall any sand or wood in the hole so I'm not sure what happened. New blades on it were lucky to have (30) holes drilled.

I'm thinking blades but the "pitch" talk I read makes me wonder as well.

Those that have gone to Big Lake (Strikemaster) how long does it take for them to work it over, and can you just show up ?

We're talking about a 100 mile trip for me. It runs kind of poor as well without a slight choke so maybe a doctors visit is needed to finish out the season.

You can just show up. Depending on how busy they are, it only takes a few minutes. You can always give them a call to and they may be able to help troubleshoot some over the phone.

Call strikemaster customer service - they can help diagnose the problem, and may suggest some authorized service center options closer to where you live. I used D-Rock (authorized Srikemaster service)in New Brighten and completely trust any work they do on Strikemasters.

Thanks for the help guys.

Think I'll call Strikemaster early a.m and plan a trip.

        Sorry for the sideways pics - I don't have time to edit.

      By far our most common is 1/4 oz.  Go as light as you can and still contact the bottom and feel it with a sensitive rod.  3/8 would be for over 20 ft if drifting or in current.  If I can't  get it done with 3/8 then I'm drifting too fast or in so much current there aren't many fish there anyway.  They'll be in a slack area where a 3/8 works better.

      Camping in Bear head state park this weekend, what can I expect for fishing?? looks decent, also bringing the tube for the kids, 10mph limit in the park so are there any decent public beaches in the area that we could run to for an afternoon of recreational boating, any info would be great, thanks guys!!

      You can say that again.    I've only heard you can't stay in the same place for more than 2 weeks.  I've seen people camping on some way back forest service roads.  They didn't look like designated camp sites to me.   How long/how often do you plan to go?  Tent or camper?

      7/24/17     Got my son and one of my daughters out with Grandpa Smutka on Waconia this afternoon (I have football practice every morning this week). We targeted panfish alongside a weedy reef. Small jig spinners (1/8 ounce VMC Mooneye Jig with a #2jig spinner and a 2" Powerbait Minnow) slow rolled over the weed tops caught tons of crappies and a bonus bass. A 1/16 ounce jig with a 1" Power Grub suspended 4 feet below a slip float caught crappies and sunfish, Caught numbers and some nice ones--beautiful weather and great time for the kids spent with Dad and Grandpa. Good luck, take a kid fishing, and I will see you out there somewhere.
