Recommended Posts

OK Im convinced I have the worlds biggest peice of s--t auger!! I after not gettig to talk to anyone at jiffy, called repair shops. Of course they said dont know till you bring it in. But sounds like no gas. Went and got new gas and new plug. No go. Then went to get rebuild kit. Took carb off and apart. Cleaned with carb cleaner. Seems to me that when i put the new needle in it sticks down farther than old one(maybe it was stuck?) reasembled. Put in fresh gas again and Now i have gas Filling up carb to the point that it spills out when I pull rope and gas is also flowing freely out of exhust. More gas comming out than what I put in seems!! So now what?? Thinking its going to go to shop. Or maybe garbage! Cant believe 300 somethig dollar P-O-S Needs work after two years

If you had old gas in it - it was probably gumed up. If you have gas coming out, sounds like to me you might have to adjust the float if you have one. After you get it runnig you might want to run a little dab of C-foam thru it in the gas. Hope that helps...WM

Hey Jethro, When I put new needle in it Stuck out a little farther than old one, and was easy to push down. Which way were you thinking it might be stuck? Up or down? And as for the gas prob, i put new gas in it with seafoam. Now It wont even start. Thans for the input fellas.

LOL, not sure I had the shop fix it blush They had told me that when I had the same issue. I had another problem though that was a quick fix.

I had fuel leaking out of the carb where the diaphram is. The hose running to/from the diaphram was leaking at the fitting. I twisted the fitting about a 1/16th of a turn and it stopped. I think if you were to call D-rock or carpenters in No. St.Paul. They are some decent folks at both places and they are always more than willing to dish out some info. I still had fuel coming out the exhaust but when I switched up to amsoil the problem has stopped. Petroleum based products leave too much unspent fuel behind and may cause little problems down the road

      In Aitkin now; getting a slow start this morning.  No problem there, it’s a day bite for the most part.   Yesterday I checked one of those two hit list lakes.  Evening into the dark.  I only picked up 2 perch, 1 gill and had one 30 inch pike to the hole 4 times before it came off when I got more aggressive to turn his head into the hole.  I started in 24 feet and worked up to 15 before connecting with anything.   What a fight though. Using a 28 inch pannie rod, 2 lb test on a 13 Descent, fishing size 16 jig and plastic.  After hooking into it and the first head shakes were done it just sat there.  I couldn’t move it for a while but could feel it finning around.  I thought, what the heck!  Did I just hook a beaver?!

      Beautiful morning on the harbor.  6 inches of ice where I'm at.

      60 years ago at the age of 10, I used to read the fishing ads in Field & Stream about fishing in Minnesota.   I always said I would go one day, but as you know life and things get in the way.   Well, I'm 90% retired now and ready to make the long trip from way down south to go fishing in Minnesota, my lifelong dream.   I always wanted to go to the BWCA, but I'm simply not able now due to health problems. I can't do hiking, portaging, etc anymore.   Here's the deal....  I would love to find a small remote cabin (in Minnesota) on a small lake to stay for a week or more, next spring or summer.    I don't need anything fancy... rustic is the best for me.   I want to fish for smallmouth bass and big bluegills and I will bring my boat along too.   If any of you could recommend a small lake, with a small cabin and good fishing to rent for a week or so, I promise I will repay you somehow.   A guide would be nice for a day, or I'd gladly give one of you a nice tip and take you along in my boat fishing, as many days as you want.   Would you please help make my 60-year dream come true?  PM me if you wish.   Thanks in advance.    PS:  If the fishing is better in a spot that doesn't have cabins, I can find a place to stay elsewhere.  Good fishing is more important that a place to sleep anyway.

      Up on mille lacs isle bay. 13.5 inches of ice and half ton trucks out here. Fishing is slow. 1 Walleye last night at 845. Moving the house deeper today.

      Thanks @knoppers.   I’m about to head over to that general area.  Makes me wonder if I should load the wheeler.

      What length of the HT BLUES are you looking for? I've seen some 24" @ Walmart stores. Some in the rod/reel combos n some just the rod itself. I got my 30" frm Frankie's bait in Chisago so if you're in that area you can check it out or give them a call. I remember seeing some @ Blue Ribbon baits in Maplewood also. You can also give them a call. I hope this helps.

      I shoot through the bottom..  Use plumbers putty to make a ring and use some to keep the diversity in place.   I just add enough water to make a good conductor.  Works great.  No worries about snagging the ducer outside the boat.  As for finders I have an old fish eagle, buddy just picked up a battery operated color unit from amazon says it worked good.
