Drill powered augers

Recommended Posts

I have the clam drill plate with the 6 inch auger paired with a dewalt dcd985 brushed motor. The deal I got on the drill was great in my opinion or otherwise I would have got the brushless model. I run the extension, because I am 6'4". Here is a photo of my set up without the extension.IMG_0071.JPG

I have fished with Rick G and his Milwaukee fuel and kdrill. Eyeguy and Rigid nils and Yes Rick can cut like crazy. For speed it's less than second a second difference for speed. The kdrill is lightest then the nils followed by my set up the clam drill plate is the difference. Through about 24 inches of ice I got 20 holes per 3 amp battery. I like the drill plate because of my disability it is something more to hang on plus it keeps the drill off the ice. For the people thinking of changing over it's the best thing ever. No more gas spilled on your hands no more gas leaking all over. Any of the options are a great choice.

I have the Dewalt 20v DCD996B with 6" Nils and it is fast. Still have not tried it on my 8" but I feel it will work just fine. I have started using the 18v to 20v adapter on most of my old tools so I now have more than enough 20v batteries.

I have the 6 inch K drill with the Milwaukee 18 volt brushless best thing since sliced bread. I have a bad pinched sciatica with the power auger constantly jerked and hurt now hardly any pain and cuts fast. WOW light that's the best thing and no gas, exhaust dripping on your car, clothes and fish house.

Really like that Dewalt came out with the 20V 6AH battery. Have not  picked one up but nice to know when and if the time comes. Way cheaper then the 20V/60V battery. It seems like the price for the 5AH have come down some as well...at least on flea-bay

I am looking at the 9 amp batteries as well but I can get 2 20/60 volt 6 amp batteries for less. I figure if I get 2 6amp batteries plus my 3 3 amp batteries I would be good to go. Or I will go with rick and eyeguy and watch rick rip it up lol.

Are you guys talking gibberish or isn't it. 60 volt 20 ampere? Never head of a 20/60 volt how can it be both?

You should get the DCB206 instead of the DCB606. The are going for right around $65 instead of close to $120 for the DCB606 20/60volt.

 

Leech,

Dewalt makes that battery ( 20V/60/) for high draw things like weed wackers and more heavy duty construction equip. I am sure it is just a matter of what pins you connect to determine your voltage. I really like using the 20v batteries on my old 18v drills and impacter with the adapter.

The DB 206 is a 20 volt max at 6 AH (amp hour) battery. The battery pack contains 10 lithium ion 3.9v batteries. (2 sets of 5 in series/parallel.) It takes 16 ion batteries wired in series to get close to 60 volts and have less than 1 AH. 

DO NOT try to change wireing. Il you short any ion battery they will burn white hot within 1 min. with NO way to put the fire out.

DeWault 20/60 volt has 15 18650 batteries @ 4 volt 3AH each. Parallel gives 20v 9ah. Series its 60v 3ah. Uses septrate contacts for each.

      Was up last week on Kab and it seemed that your bait depended on where you were fishing. Some areas leeches did good, but others minnows were the go to. We lindy rigged the entire trip and on days when wind was gusty we did pretty good shallower with minnows in 13 to 20 ft....then some areas we were doing better with leeches 16 to 32 ft. No wind was like the dead sea.
    • Mike89
      catch and eat the crawfish too!!!
    • Uncle Boney
      I can second A Warrior.  Jumbo leeches for Walleye.  Northern were more interested in minnows and crawlers.

      A Carp Anglers Group Fishing social will be on June 23rd in Coon Rapids. If you enter the park from the Coon Rapids side (Egret Blvd), take a left from the parking lot and drive towards the picnic shelters. Take a right at the first stop sign and park in the lot. We will be fishing in the stretch or river behind the picnic shelter/playground. Start time can be before 7am and you can fish into the evening if you want. There will be medals for the 3 largest fish captured.

      Thanks for lots of good info guys.  Sounds like if I do things right I can have fish for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I'll try fishing that reef for some evening walleye. Bobber fish for some sunnies in the weeds.  @delcecchi, I catch enough Walleye in the summer that I really don't want to ask. I won't shy away from a bite. I'll check that little bay for crappies.  @vermilionfox, Wow that is a lot of location data. My PROP thanks you for the rock info!  Merry Go Round? I have another question regarding the Rusty Crawfish... are they a problem on the west side of the lake too? Bloody mini lobsters. I remember spending lots of time using orange for bass and walleye since they were a major food source. Been years since I've done that.  Gone Out Fishin

      I don't think you will be able to run it on that generator. I have a yamaha 2000 and I have not tried it yet but from everything I have read you need 2800 watts to start the AC. All the 2018 ice castle fish houses are coleman mach 3 plus AC I think. 
    • BigVwalters
      The fishing was pretty decent over the weekend.  Walleyes were biting on rigs with leeches or crawlers. Caught 12 between Friday and Saturday with with 4 nice slotters.   Biggest being a 24".   
    • Borch
      Star Island in Cass Lake has remote, boat in primitive camping as well.

      Just returned from a successful trip on Kab.  Minnows did catch fish, but leeches were the ticket

      Angling regulations on Lake of the Woods and the Rainy River in northern Minnesota would change under a proposal being considered by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources to reduce the number of walleye and sauger allowed to be kept in the winter on the lake, and on the river allowing only catch-and-release fishing for those fish in the spring.  “We recently went through a public process of updating the Lake of the Woods Fisheries Management Plan and identified several potential areas of concern with regard to current levels of harvest,” said Phil Talmage, Baudette fisheries supervisor. “That’s why we’re discussing these potential changes.” The proposed changes would reduce the aggregate limit of walleye and sauger in the winter to align with the summer regulations on Lake of the Woods, and make spring angling on the Rainy River catch-and-release for walleye and sauger. The changes would go into effect starting March 1, 2019. Anglers will see yellow signs at public water accesses around Lake of the Woods and the Rainy River later this month notifying the public of the proposal. Future news releases will provide the details of a formal public comment period during the fall, and will include ways to provide comment to the DNR on the proposal. For more information on Lake of the Woods management go to mndnr.gov/lakeofthewoods. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
