D-Rock in New Brighton (or is it Shoreview) should have all the parts you need. That's where I pick up parts when I need them... and boy do I need them!

Good Luck!

We did about the same as most trips... enough crappies to keep it interesting (we even through a couple 11-12'ers back!), with plenty of walleyes caught and we even got a couple respectable perch... had a ball with all my good buddies and I even played Johnny on the stereo WAY TOO LOUD Saturday night! grin.gif

I will be back the the 24th and March 3rd for sure... (along with some other days the wife doesn't know about yet!)

Good Luck!

Ken

that reply conflicts with what you were telling me 2 weeks ago when you were re drilling holes. i guess you pry didn't need parts from jiffy for what you did to fix your auger, just a little know-how wink.gif anyway thanks for the info guys. i picked up the auger 2night brought it into the shop to do a little evaluation and had it runnin in less than a minute. i brought it home to show my wife the purchase i was so proud of, but she did not think it was a very good valentine's day present grin.gif i'm still talking like i was suckin on a helium balloon shocked.gif

I must have been using KellyP's auger, that thing is the spawn of Satan.

No it is a Jiffy that has never been loved, held or even had its own gas cap vent...but it has drilled a few thousand holes.

That would be my auger. I bet I have one of the few modified augers in the state. It punches those 10" hole pretty quick, never bogs down just slams your hand into the wall or spins you in a circle. Those parts I had to get through a small engine guy along with the piston and head, not much stock about that power head.

I bought it and borrowed it out then it came back without mix gas and a cooked engine...so I had time on my hands and knew a good small engine guy and we increased the bore and compression along with a carb to match that is pretty wild. Didn't you notice it has when heck of a bark when it digs in?

Yeah, I noticed it. I just thought it was the new 3HP one Jiffy put out. I haven't seen one of those in action. Was that originally a 2hp or 3 hp?

Was a 3hp, now it is ice eating SOB power. Trouble is it gets hot drilling out the big houses with 12+ holes.

I think that is what I am going to buy next year. I keep telling people I want to try something different than what I am using now. I said the same thing for my flasher, it only took me 3 years to finally switch over and I am glad I did. Maybe I wont wait so long with the auger.

That one does stink the place up. Buddy is using one of the new four stroke jobs, no smoke,ice chips, stink or noise. Slower then a turtle taking a nap but clean.

      I scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.

      That ion x does look sweet! Not sure if I can justify the switch from my current ion... what was your out the door cost?

      I was thinking the same thoughts, I saw the pond by my house locked up, figure someone will be sitting in front of the courthouse before you know it..

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.
