13 posts in this topic

Looking for a good ice auger carrier for my ATV any suggestions out there?

I saw one at Cabelas that looked pretty decent for $39.99. I haven't used it, but it looks good enough to get the job done.

I saw those as well, looked pretty decent and you can mount it on your back rack. I've used the gun holders, but have had to wedge a tennis ball in each one to get the auger up higer off the rack. Think I'll be purchasing one of those from Cabela's.

You might want to post on the ATV index as well. I seem to remember that Dave one of the ATV moderators has one from Otter that is a big tube that looks pretty neat.

I bought the Mad-Dog ATV auger carrier last year and used it last ice season. Worked pretty good but a little difficult to mount for some reason. I like it for the fact that the auger stays there solidly strapped down, even when transporting the ATV. I would recommend it.

The Mad Dog holder is probably what I'll get just because is holds the auger secure while transporting. really dosen't seem to be a whole lot of options out there. Thanks

Ryan's ATV rack have worked very well for me. You are able to attatch to your front rack. It is secure and you can transport onn the trailer this way wthout removing the auger.

Approx 40.00

Got mine at the ice show a few years back.

I've seen the v-style gun holders (that mount to the rack - like shown below) work pretty good, so long as you strap the power head in so it doesn't tip off... not the best method, but perhaps the cheapest...

I've been using the Ryan rack for 7 years and wouldnt have anything else. Leave it mounted on the front rack and you can use it for carrying other items all year around. Very solid and goof proof

I use the v style gun holders that Marine man mentioned and they work great. I have them mounted on the front rack. In the fall I use it for my gun and bow and in the winter I use it to hold the auger. I would recommend a metal holder with rubber coating vs the plastic kind. Not sure what they cost.

You could also check out the Northern Tool website, ATV accessories. Just noticed, Mon or Tues, they also handle a carrier for augers.

      The Rum has been dropping in flow and water level since the 20th from St Francis down if that helps

      Fishing awful this morning. Launched at 8:30. By 12:30 had exactly two small pike. Finally found some walleyes and ended up with 22 fish - NO BASS! bummer. Water cold - only 61-64 degrees. Weather man blew it again. Walleyes in about 20 FOW, best lure Lunker City Fin-S-Fish.   New camera worked well but had troubles with new sonar/GPS. Think I got it fixed once home.   Here is today's video: June 26 video

      We took our annual trip to Rainy Lake in mid-June staying at Taylor's Cove along Bear's Pass.  My dad started going there back in the late 70's and now brings me and my son.  Every year provides great memories, new and old.  Anyhow, fishing was very good, particularly for bass and walleye. Water temps ranged from 62-72 degrees.  Most days were about 75 degrees, overcast and breezy.  Our biggest smallmouth was 22" and biggest walleye was 30".  In fact we boated ten walleye 25" or larger.  We caught pike up to 37".  We found walleyes in weedy bays around 6-10' deep.  Bass were in 5-8'.  Most of the fish were spitting up perch so I imagine that's what kept them shallow.  A few pics to share.  Wish I could be there more often...

      You can't find one? How much do they cost? Try Cabela's for starters.All the I-Pilot and I-Pilot Link models have Spot-lock.   http://www.cabelas.com/browse.cmd?categoryId=734095080&CQ_search=terrova   https://www.minnkotamotors.com/Trolling-Motors/Freshwater-Bow-Mount/New-Terrova/

      Nice, I'll have to start fishing it more and learn it.

      You can find crappies and sunfish anywhere on the like around the pencil reeds and/or cabbage.  One of the best spots is right in front of the resort, but don't limit yourself there as there are plenty of spots all over the lake for pan fish.  The nice part is that you will probably also catch bass while going for pan fish.  Good luck and remember to give other fisherman plenty of room.  No reason to fish close to others.
