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.

      So how do you guys go about finding fish when you go out...Do you drive around until you mark fish or big schools of smelt then troll that area?? I know I've read about using a site that shows Superiors water temps also....I'm thinking of trying it this weekend if I get the boat ready in time and the weather is ok.

      I also heard that there has been a lot of ice damage on the South shore of Birch Point. Saw a few pictures that Sherry, (Manic Docks) took last week. Cliff

      Think I might try my kayak on a lake this weekend for some of those.
