okay. I switched out the original blade with my chipper blad from my gas auger. First time I used it last weekend the auger quit about halfway down the first hole. I let it sit 10 seconds and it drilled through three more with no problem. Then on the 7th it quit again. let it rest and it finished the job. It took time and was a workout, but it did it. The battery gauge showed 3/4 after the 7 holes in about 21" of ice.

Wondering if any strikemaster 40v users with the lazer blade have been reopening holes with it and if it does a good job. A dealer told me the lazer blades struggle when reopening holes but are the fastest cutting blades when drilling new holes.

I'll try this again as I was having trouble getting everything posted from my phone.

Has anyone tried using JT's custom snare rods? They claim when using the rod n one of their custom holders as a deadstick, it sets the hook itself.

I would be curious to hear from those who have used one.

I have heard from several places the best price is Unclaimed freight. They buy them by the truck load so they get the best pricing.


Yep
$875 at unclaimed Freight.

I was going to pick one up there as I was getting tired of lugging the 3100 watt to the lake every weekend and having to bring two 5 gallon gas tanks to get through the weekend.

I then found a Ryobi 2200/1700 on sale at home depot for $379. I bought that and it is so much more convenient. easy to move and runs 10+ hours on a tank of gas. I now come home with 2-2.5 gallons left in my can.

I have a green mountain davey crocket pellet grill. It works well. I can grill, or throw a rack of ribs on and smoke them for a 5 hour period. You do need an outlet or 12 volt battery to connect it to so the auger can keep feeding the pellets in and that fan can control the temps.

Right now I am keeping the fatheads, rainbows and shiners in the same 120 quart cooler with an aquarium pump that I believe is rated for 20 gallons. It has two ports and i have a 2 foot hose with a 4 inch long diffuser on the end of it. I get my water where it comes into the house from the well, before being treated. I will start adding a frozen milk jug to the water. I probably fill the cooler with 12" of water that comes out at about 49 degrees.
I probably have 2-3 dozen minnows in the cooler. I guess I can try separating them.

Fathead minnows can live in very oxygen-poor environments. They are fairly compatible to sharing space with other baits, however suckers, and shiners have a very high oxygen demand, and usually don't last long when combined with other species. Even if you have the biggest oxygen pump possible, the dissolved oxygen capacity of the water is very dependent on temperature. If you're going to house the bait together I would suggest figuring out how to lower the water temp, as lower temp water has higher oxygen solubility. If that doesn't work, you might just have to house them separately.


Thanks for the info. The water coming into the cooler is around 50 degrees. It sits in the basement that's probably 62 degrees. the shiners were doing fine until the suckers were added. I'll try to separate them tonight.

Does anyone know if sucker minnows would cause an unfavorable environment for fatheads, rainbows and shiners? I have been keeping minnows in my basement since new years in a 120 quart cooler and an aerator rated for a 20 gallon tank. I swap the water every day. I would usually lose 5-6 minnow per week with very few, if any shiners dying. This past weekend my son threw about 6 small suckers in after his fishing trip. The next day I had about 4-5 dead minnows. Yesterday I probably had 8-10 including many shiners. There was also some foam forming around the aerator lines at the surface. Is this something that may be caused by the suckers?

Not sure why it is showing $599 on link. It showed $325 when I originally posted it
