ELECTRIC AUGERS

4 posts in this topic

Anybody locally running one of these? I currently just have a hand auger but that is a pain this time of year. I am considering the Strike Master Electra. I like the idea of not having to mess with gas & oil, plus woulod be super quit. Wondering if anyone around here has any feedback on this unit? How does it cut? How many holes one single chrg etc?

I've heard that it won't cut too many holes on a charge.

I have that auger and love it. Most of the ice fishing that I do is on big water up North where I can drive to my holes. I can get about 8 holes through 3 feet of ice on one charge, depending on conditions. I usually drag along a deepcycle spare and get another 10 holes out of that. If I still need to drill more, I hook it up to the truck. I love not worrying about whether the thing will start.

      I was out there Wednesday and couldn't buy a fish. I fished two different pits and tried depths from 30 feet to 130 feet and everything in between. Marked one fish but couldn't get my lure to it in time. Second time ive tried in as many years and both times I got skunked. Using a small shiny spoon with treble hook tipped with waxies. Help!

      Fished out of long point  Friday 31 ft of water fishing wasn't fast and furious but the quality of fish was great with the biggest walleye being 18.5  three of my saugers were 16 in each. done by 2 in the afternoon with a limit. Saturday fished with a friend in same area. Was slower fishing. Maybe do to the wind which picked up quite a bit. We ended up catching 8 more nice ones with the biggest being 18 in. Very warm out  but the lake was in great shape!

      Spent all that money on shiners and suckers, and every fish I caught was on crappie minnows  go figure.

      Add a small ball at the end of the tail to add some water resistance.   Really adds additional action.
