Auger add-on


irvingdog

Question

Anyone try that "flaring tool" that you can put on the end of your blade? It opens on centrifugal motion, and will flare out the bottom of your hole. When the auger stops spinning, it retracts. Does it work? Work well? How about on a Strikemaster?

Avoid it like the plague as far as I am concerned. I installed one on my Jiffy a couple of years ago thinking it would be the clear ticket for those scrappy Square Lake Trout. Well, the first time I used it, the little spring came loose on the flaring blade and it would not retract. This left me with my auger down the hole and no way to bring it back out. I was able to straighten the loop end of my slush scoop and fidget around long enough to retract it and recover my auger that was trapped in the hole. I went straight home, took it off and returned it. The gal at the returns counter was not at all surprised that I was returning it. There were 3 others behind the counter that had also been returned. Apparently, I was not the only one that had trouble. Additionally, I did call the manufacturer and left a voice mail message that was never returned.

I've heard the same comments along with it throws a lot of water. I'd still like to try one out. If anyone has one laying around and would like to part with it let me know.

I also thought this would be the clear ticket, The first time I used it up on kab it got hooked under the ice and had lots of problems with it. I did't have3 the right tools with me to take it off on the ice but the first thing the next morning that pice of **** came off good luck

Northlander thats what I've heard but figured I'd tinker with and try and get it to work. If not I'll throw it in the corner with the rest of my failed inventions.
Besides I like head banging projects. smile.gif

      We fished Thursday - Saturday. Couldn’t get any marks to bite on the west end so started east. Caught lots of 9-15” eyes on the mud side of the transition. Mostly crawlers for us on Thurs-Fri but bite changed to minnows on Saturday. Our rainbows ran small but had a few big chubs mixed in. Big chubs we’re best. No eyes on small suckers.  A jig and sucker or crawler on 9-14’ rocks got smallies going in several places. Rocky points coming off islands also produced smallies with tubes, deep jerkbaits and ned rigs on east end. Also landed a 45” ski on a crawler harness.

      Hello. Another important factor to consider when looking for an writing service is the amount of work they can do. A company like https://payforwriting.com/pay-for-papers/  offers a wide variety of topics and has over sixteen writers who are experts in the subject matter. The service also offers proofreading and editing services. Prices start at , but they can get expensive quickly if deadlines are tight.

      Hello. The first step is to read reviews written by customers. This way, you can determine if a service delivers on time and does not charge hidden fees. The paperwriter reviews should also state whether or not the company guarantees original work. Some of the most reliable review platforms include Trustpilot and SiteJabber. Moreover, many  writing services publish their customer reviews on their websites, some even in video format.

      Hello. Remember, cheap writing services will not pass a plagiarism scan and lack quality.  When looking for an college papers writers , you can look for online reviews that compare several companies. Those reviews should include both positive and negative feedback from customers. The service you choose should also provide timely delivery and no hidden fees. Additionally, it should guarantee that every paper is original. This way, you can be sure that you are getting a high-quality written by a competent writer.

      I also don’t really believe that you can earn online casinos. There you can play, put bets, win and more often lose money. In the casino for Norway, the same rules apply as for the rest of the casino. If you are lucky, you will win. But to earn money, it is unlikely.
