anyone use a core auger?

7 posts in this topic

my bro returned from a weekend at LOW and his inlaws had a core arger,(3'x 8" steel cylinder) he said it worked very slick, just push the ice under and very little scooping to do, reopens holes easy too, where would one find one of these? do they work as good as he said? the only thing I would worrie about especialy up at LOW would be what to do when you have more than 3' of ice..

You might not be able to find one of these these things are old. My dad has one and it is at least 30 years old. If you have a gas auger stick with it.

I saw one for sale at Reed's in Walker. This was right after christmas so I dont know if it is still there. They are still being made by someone. Dont know for sure who it is.

There called Big Ern's core auger. A local store in Grand Fork's carries them. They retail for $140. If I remember right they are made by someone close to the Grand Forks area.

I saw a demonstration video for them a couple winters back at Home of Economy in Grand Forks. Home of Economy outdoors department is (701) 795-3580. Someone there should know the deal, and if you're too far to go there to pick one up, I'm sure they'll ship it.

I believe the product does not include a powerhead, but is supposed to fit major brand auger heads.

They don't come with the power head. Home of Economy's # is 701-795-3580. That is where I seen them. I was just in there today. They had them for Jiffy's, Eskimo's and they had one that wasn't in a box and wasn't labeled for what it fit.

Core Augers are GREAT!

Just remember to leave all the cores around your house, and I know that the snowmobile traffic will go WAY down!!!!

    • ya but its fun! It was nice getting out i am learning alot watching them and being out there gets me more experience since i shot mine this year after being out a total of probably 6 hours for two days
    • Frustrating buggers aren't they!
    • well gobbled like crazy in the morning finally got a hen to come out she came 1 foot away from blind. Then 4 more came behind her 2 toms and 2 hens then the hens went back to the woods and one tom followed the other tom stayed in the open strutting back and forth just out of range then a crane came and he strutted at that then a goose came and he strutted at that they all came out just out of range and cut to our side. They sat there strutting at each other and couldn't get them to come in. One of them came back started walking to our decoys once again just out of range. Uncle tried to get out and go through the dirt bike track he's currently laying on top a jump within 60 yards of them no other options to sneak he chose the wrong way to go should have crawled against the burn... Man these buggers suck going to change blind spots next time know where they roost and see where they strut on the property. should of had a fan decoy out I bet that would have drawn them in
    • Well our lilacs were just starting to bud out yesterday and I was thinking we should go take a peek today. Unfortunately we got 2 inches of snow overnight and it's still coming down! I'm pretty sure Hubbard county will have to wait at least a week to ten days with the temps forecast.
    • Sorry...no excuses BB...the better team did win....4-1. Lucky for the Wild that Statsny was not playing from the start or it woukd have been a sweep. Love the fact that the national hockey gurus are ripping the Wild right now..and read local Souhans article pretty much what I've been saying. http://m.startribune.com/wild-again-not-good-enough-when-it-matters/420167633/ While Chicago is telling it like it is...the Wild are sending the wrong message...and Chicago has 3 cups in recent past....6 overall...pretty obvious which organization is trying to win the cup every year and which one is happy just "selling tickets".
    • Got off to a late start, but was able to get to the lower river at 6 AM. Frost covered the ground, as temps were barely above freezing. I could hear turkeys gobbling as I walked through the field. Once I made it to the wooded river valley, the sound of grouse drumming echoed through the woods. Eagles and ospreys continually flew over my head throughout he morning. The water was mabye a couple inches high, and somewhat cloudy, but was noticeably clearing as the morning progressed. 8 o'clock seemed to be the magic hour, as that's when I caught most of my 13 brown trout. Biggest was 16 inches, and had a few swipes from some dandies as well. Beautiful morning to be on the river!
    • So i have experimented with a bunch of brands to see which ones walk the best .... of coarse it depends on fisherman, rod & line being used.   7"2" Cabelas bass rod medium heavy tourney rod,  power pro 45# ...here is the order of best walking frog that worked for me off the dock.   1.  Terminator frog 2.  Bobby's perfect frog (pretty close to terminator) by snag Proof 3.  Spro frog (ok) 4.  KVD frog  (took some work) 5.  Booya pad crasher (teririble)   These are the ones i own ... terminator and snag proof where effortless!!!
