how should i protect my auger

Recommended Posts

I would use a ready-rig auger case and your stock blade guard. You will be well protected smile

Gander sells canvas bags that augers fit in. I bought one for my nils but it didnt occur to me until I got home that The nills wouldnt fit because the auger is longer. I beleive they were $50 Late in season be lucky if they were in stock but give it a shot.

Heck call Canvas Craft and maybe they can sew one up for you.

i realize my auger is older but whats the point of trying to baby your auger (yes i realize they cost a lot) i mean your drilling holes in the ice its not spose to look pretty forever lol but thats just my opinion

Use factory auger guard and make sure that the power head doesn't bounce around too much. I wouldn't baby her or she might run like one if you know what I mean.

I was thinking of using a piece of Sonotube, that concrete forming stuff to slide it into when it's in my truck. That has to be way cheaper than a big piece of pvc. Maybe rig it up so it would sit up over one of the wheel tubs out of the way....Just thinking..

    • Good job!  I have never found any Blacks so they look a little different.  Can you take a picture of what they look like cut in half? They look a little scary like False Morel's 
    • I picked for about 2 hours this morning. I'm not exactly haw many I got but its enough for a couple meals. I'm going to chop some of these up and mix with some cream cheese, feta cheese and garlic chives and then stuff some chicken breasts and cook them on the grill. The little bit of rain that we got last week helped the shrooms pop but it really didn't do much else for the woods besides help the mosquito's hatch. There were so many they licked the bug spray off first then swarmed. I found the mushrooms all over, North, South, East and West facing hills. Normally spot 1 has the best results but this trip it was my second spot. All of them had pretty good size too. Only a few that were in direct sunlight were dried up otherwise they are very firm. Spot 1 is the left container. Don't worry, I use a mesh bag while I'm out in the woods!
    • Yup.... 6 & 4 for Lead.... 4 & 2 for steel
    • I ended up framing my house, putting on the T&G , and then spray foaming back against the interior, which may be why I am not seeing any movement... I also used pine vs cedar
    • I agree with the guy who agreed with the other guy.
    • Just wait till they come up with the remote submarine drone with 3d high resolution camera that can see through algae and milfoil and transmit to your eyewear in 3d.   I struggle with properly tying a berkley knot......
    • I agree with rundrave. #4 early and #2 shot later in year
    • Yes, 5/16 T&G I installed last fall. I did the same, but I see this summer it's starting to buckle  
    • Adding a 4th wouldn't do much IMO. The map screen is already too small to be useful when screen is split in 3. I added a Helix 7 G2N to use as a map screen. Networked with other 2 units
    • I could always go and spend more money on an additional unit but some of it is like Floyd said. I have a hard enough time watching one screen. I have the app on my phone. I think that lowrance has the ability to split the screen into 4. I just can't believe I'm the only person who would like to see this but maybe I am. It may not be as big a deal once I get more familiar with the unit. Right now I like to look at all the screens to help discern what it is im seeing on the screen.  I appreciate the input!
