2hp 10" strikemaster ?

Question

Huey

I have a 2hp 8" auger. I'm thinking of getting and extra 10" auger (just the drill part, no motor) for the occasional lake trout or bluegill sight fishing trip. Most 10" augers are 3 hp. I'm wondering if the 10" auger will be too much for the 2hp motor.

Does anyone have a 2hp 10" auger? Does it work well?

Thanks for any info.

Huey

Mine works great, just keep your blades sharp. Much lighter to cary than the 3hp.

I have one, and it cuts great. I got the 10" 2HP for going after lakers, but never have fished for lakers. I have been tempted to go to an 8" hole, but I sure love the extra 2" hole.

I have the Lazer Mag Express 2hp 10inch auger and it works just fine. Just keep the blades sharp and you shouldnt have any problems.

Diddo on what everyone else said. I have the 10" lazer mag xpress and use it for everything from gills to lakers-it's not that much more weight compared to an 8". You really don't need a 10" for lakers, although it's nice. I would definitely buy one if I didn't have an auger, but personally wouldn't buy a 10" just for lakers if you already have the 8". Just my 2 cents.

Huey,

I have a 10" Mag 2000...it gets the job done. I have found I have NO need for a 10" hole...maybe we can work something out...

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.

      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      Plastic PC is 3/4 x2 x3.5. Drilled shallow holes on the transom side for the adhesive to cling to. Pretty solid. Time will tell

      No shutoff needed. Take a photo of how you mounted your transducer Alex.

      Actually when I store the boat I take the unit off as well. Is it ok to have the power line just hanging out? Do I need a shut off switch?
