      Fishing Report Clubs - LIMITED MEMBERSHIP - Join Today - FREE   01/24/2018

      Fishing Minnesota had added a new menu item (see above) called Fishing Report Clubs. It's a way to keep the really good fishing reports coming and being shared only with those who also provide detailed fishing reports. We will only approve new members who request to join if they have already posted a recent fishing report in the area forum, associated with the Fishing Report Club area  you want to join. We are going to limit the number of regular memberships, in the Fishing Report Clubs, to the top 20  members in each Club, to those with the best frequency and quality fishing reports provided in the club and less so in the regular fishing report forum open to all members. The higher quality fishing report reserved for the club of course. If  you want fishing reports  around your area, I would Join Now, some of the clubs are starting to fill fast. Use the Fishing Reports Club link in the Menu above (after you've posted a fishing report in the regular area forum) and request to Join.

Question

Does anyone know if a 7 inch Strikemaster Lazer auger shaft will fit on a Strikemaster MAG 2000 auger head? Thanks for the help.

It should they seem to be the same size shaft. If you are buying a new one take your head or at least measure the size of the shaft, and measure the opening on the auger. You could also call any dealer and ask them they can tell you.

Just took off the original Auger bit on my Mag III Plus and put on a 8 inch lazer works great and should work on the Mag 2000 as well.

I have an 8" lazer drill on a mag 2000 head and it works great. Popped tons of holes this year.

I will also concur that it will fit. The only difference between the mag2000 and the lazer mag/224 head is the color of the engine guard (black vs. red)

Last year when I picked up my "224" from D-Rock, the augers he used to drill holes all were the mag2000. I paired a new 224 auger bit up with the mag2000 head with no problems. Maybe this is a little picky, but I gave Strikemaster a call and they sent me out the new engine decal for the lazer 224 and I removed and applied it to the engine. It definitely looks more "mean" with the black engine guard with the new decal. Plus, (hopefully this NEVER happens) but if someone were to "borrow" my auger on the ice, hopefully they'd think twice as my exact "setup" is not something you could pick up at any store.

I have a 10 year old Mag 2000, and last year brought it to Strikemaster in Big Lake to have it upgraded to a 7" laser.

They had a heck of a time removing the old auger, but they were able to work on it while I waited. That company has great customer service!

I think it ended up costing around $120 or so, and it works great.

      There was a couple mixed in the bucket. They were big shiners 5 to 6 inch range. The shiners would be down for 6 hours or so each time and we never waited that long for a sucker to be taken. Just our experience. If a guy could have both I say try and see.
    • Wanderer
      Call ahead for shiners.  I’ve heard there aren’t any left in the state.  At Mille Lacs 2 weeks ago I asked for some and the guy looked at me like I was stupid. Of course I blame that on the question... 
    • Jplante
      Fowldreams, did you have shiners? Just curious if preferred them over shiners, or thats just what you had.
    • fowldreams
      suckers, suckers, suckers. This was the only bait that worked for us last weekend and when the fish hit the rattle reels line spooled fast.

      What surprised me about the fishery in SE Florida is that it is mostly live bait (Shiners). There are so many fish in those channels that the Peacock's won't chase a bait for long. I guess they can be caught on the fly but your casts needs to be very accurate and your hookset quick because they spit the flies fast. Our guide said artificials could be done but you're going to spend all day to maybe catch a few fish. Watching the videos of those Amazon Peacock's destroying topwater plugs and jerkbaits looks like a riot!!!

      Thanks again guys! Much appreciated!

      Smaller suckers and shiners.  One hint is that you may want to get your bait prior to getting close to the lake.  A lot of the area bait shops having a hard time getting the suckers and shiners in the past weeks.

      Has your tip up been in deeper water, shallower or the same? I’m hoping to get some iced this last weekend of the season. Devils Lake in ND is a good bet.
