2hp 10" strikemaster ?

7 posts in this topic

I have a 2hp 8" auger. I'm thinking of getting and extra 10" auger (just the drill part, no motor) for the occasional lake trout or bluegill sight fishing trip. Most 10" augers are 3 hp. I'm wondering if the 10" auger will be too much for the 2hp motor.

Does anyone have a 2hp 10" auger? Does it work well?

Thanks for any info.

Huey

Mine works great, just keep your blades sharp. Much lighter to cary than the 3hp.

I have one, and it cuts great. I got the 10" 2HP for going after lakers, but never have fished for lakers. I have been tempted to go to an 8" hole, but I sure love the extra 2" hole.

I have the Lazer Mag Express 2hp 10inch auger and it works just fine. Just keep the blades sharp and you shouldnt have any problems.

Diddo on what everyone else said. I have the 10" lazer mag xpress and use it for everything from gills to lakers-it's not that much more weight compared to an 8". You really don't need a 10" for lakers, although it's nice. I would definitely buy one if I didn't have an auger, but personally wouldn't buy a 10" just for lakers if you already have the 8". Just my 2 cents.

I did the same thing and switched mine out. Works great.

Huey,

I have a 10" Mag 2000...it gets the job done. I have found I have NO need for a 10" hole...maybe we can work something out...

      169 overpass (293rd or county 9) north of Zimmerman...take the off ramp and go east (right) to county 19 take a right going south through the S curve and hang a left at the end of S curve on 289th Ave take that about 2 miles to Blue Lake Dr take a right and then take your first left a couple blocks later to the landing.

      So as far as live bait rigging what works best? Shiners? Suckers? Fatheads? As far as this time of year goes.
