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.

      Best to contact the DNR and let them access it to see if they think it's an issue before you end up with a fine.

      No, I went out the north access that you can't launch a boat on. 237th and Granda off of North Shore Trail. Very north end of Lake 1.

      I know there's no perfect boat for all rivers and lakes.  But, I've had aluminum jonboats for 60-years with no problems, so far.   My question is....  what type of aluminum boat do you like for most MN lakes?     I like  a 1648 boat, but undecided on the bow type....  Flat bottom, modified. V,  or Deep V?   What do you like?     Thanks for your help.

      Just a heads up that you cannot trap beavers on an WMA without a permit from the wildlife manager.

      The cost is for sure starting to get up there.  I've been wanting to take the kids but I just can't justify the cost for a weekend of fishing.  All of ice fishing trips end up being guys trips where we all split the costs, then it doesn't end up being that bad.  I'm guessing the bulk of the groups that outfitters service are groups of guys splitting the costs and that is partly what drives their pricing.  If they were pricing the houses and services with families of 4 in mind they likely wouldn't be able to charge nearly as much.    I can't fault the resorts as they are pricing based on what the majority of their clientele are.  Very few resorts are out there getting rich regardless.  I do however think hundreds of dollars a night for a single room shack with plywood bunk beds is a bit crazy when you really think about it. I pay less per night when staying in high end hotels in down town Minneapolis.

      Just booked our first LOTW winter trip this week. Interesting and funny😂 reading this thread. I thought the price for a long weekend was a bit steep, but like others have said, it's guys trip so we will be paying per person. I can fully understand the family angle.   Thanks for the laughs!

      Not sure, leech~~. But her health may have a play into it, as about the time he was rebuilding our place, he started just after Labor Day 2013, she had a major accident while riding 1 of her horses. The horse landed on her & crushed her hips, so bad they said she was lucky to be alive & were afraid she'd never walk again.  Her not being around to do his paperwork actually caused some issues with some of the other sub-contractors at out place. Many surgeries later ,with them having to come down to Mayo for the last, she seems to be able to get by.  I agree to in that I think the business would be easier to sell with the bar & restuarant too. Another issue is that all her good help has had to find different work & would be very hard to replace. Know there's quite a few people  that are  still hoping they rebuild.

      FYI May have been mentioned before but just in case, there is a ridge running from Gold Island towards Breezy Point in Frazer bay as well.

      Still waiting for the fire marshal to determine cause. They are working on a plan but can’t knock it down until the fire marshal lets them
