It sounds like you might have tweaked your drill. Check with the folks at Strikemaster in Big Lake.

The strikemasters in the psat had problems with the auger to blade supports breaking/cracking and then the pitch of the blades would be off just a bit and enough to make cutting a real pain. My friends that had strikemsaters took them to Big Lake and they fixed them up, cleaned them and got them running like new for very cheap.

Im a Nils guy but Strikemaster has been good to my friends who have them.

If you have a newer one with the point in the middle it needs to be sharp. I had the same problem and found a big burr on the center point, I filed it sharp and now it drills like a dream.

I have a strikemaster with the laser blades and can not reopen a hole with it. It just jumps all over the hole. Has anybody else had this problem?

I don't re-open alot of holes with mine, but the ones I have done have went great. My auger cut just as good as it does when drilling a new hole. I have a Strikemaster Lazer mag express. The blades aren't new, but still cut fine. I think I have ran about 6 tanks of gas through the auger since I bought it last year, and the blades are the ones that came on it.

You might need new blades or your auger shaft could be bent?

Hope you get it figured out.

      Ace (or anyone for that matter), have you been able to pinpoint the conditions that bring the big smallies up shallow in the fall?  Water temp perhaps?  Moon phase? A bait connection?  We saw this happen by chance a couple of years ago, which resulted in some very large smallies coming over the rails.  Didn’t weigh the biggest but my guess was 6lbs+.     Just trying to to see if this shallow movement can be predicted.    Brian

      Deep weed edges have produced crappie during the transition period, before the water gets in the 50s. Rigging or jigging chubs have been a standard tactic for walleye this time of year. If your noticing a lot of debris throughout the water column, turnover may be going on, fish a bigger body of water, they turn over a little latter. Have not been on Webb, just tips for this time of year.... Good luck!

      Try pine lake off of McFarland. Easy to get to and good size eyes. You’d need a portable fish finder though. Interesting lake for eyes. Basswood is awesome too but it’s a haul.

      Yeah, I wouldn’t be making this treck until next June. I heard from another source that it’s navigable as well, as long as water levels are normal. Thanks for the info.

      @gimruis   I’ve been accused of having too much patience many times.   My duck hunting buddy talked about people’s differing personalities and how we didn’t understand why fellow hunters weren’t more considerate.  We settled on the fact that we’ve been trained to be that naive from working in the hospitality/service industry too long! 😀   Still loving the hunting but have to change our expectations a bit

      up here on webb lake right now... anyone have any tips or suggestions?!

      Instead of going through all the hassle of mounting it in your boat before you knows if it's good. You may try duct taping the ducer to a stick to hang over the side and run some power wires to it.   You should know pretty fast if it works or not by making a few knob adjustments. Good Luck.

      I know this....not as many smallmouth coming up shallow on this fall trip as compared to spring. Could not get a top water bite regardless of time of day and depth of water.   Found a few stragglers in the few hours we chased them.
