Strikemaster Lazer 224 (8")

9 posts in this topic

Has anyone used the strikemast 224 8" Auger very much. What do you think? Does it cut better than the regular Lazer Mag Express or does it have some problems? Please let me know.

I have not used the 224 but I have heard good things about this auger, it is faster then the Express and is supposed to be the fastest period. The only strikemaster auger that I know of that they ran into problems with was the 9" Lazor Ultra which they have now discontinued.

I used a 224 8" all last winter. I was very happy with all aspects of it. It started great, the only auger I have seen that may be faster is the Nils, . Ice build up was a problem until I started carring a can of Pam cooking spray to coat the blades once in a while. I drilled Approx 4-500 holes and I am due for sharp blades. I dont find that too bad except that it is four blades that will total around $65.

On the model head I have there is the compression release button, I really didn't care for that. I heard of a couple that broke parts by forgetting to push the button.

Not having used the 224,I heard that there was not to much of a speed difference between the 2 augers.

I bought one early last year and love it. It starts great and cuts like crazy hole after hole.

I am wondering what others also think of this auger because I am considering buying this one or a regular lazer 8".

Thanks for the info.

The 224 is a awesome auger. Check around. There are some reconditioned units available for a lot less than new and they come with a full factory warranty. I know that Reel Fishing and Tackle in Madison Lake has a bunch. Call them up. The price may surprise you.

      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.
