Strike Master Slush Master???

11 posts in this topic

What is people's thoughts on these? How well do they work?

I have a 6.5x14 wheel house, 3 holes on one side and 4 on the other and was wondering if once you get a one hole open does the slush from the others as you are pushing it out just end up coming up the clean ones because they are all fairly close together.

Thanks in advance for any thoughts,

and sorry if this topic has been already covered.

Mine works great. It doesnt clean the hole out completely.. but it takes care of 90%. The rest I just scoop out and I am good to. Its quick and painless... as long as you dont mind the price they charge for those things ! sick yikes !!

I just have to reverse my Ice gator, and most of the slush goes down the hole under the ice. grin Scoop the little that is left and start fishing. Man, I love the Ice Gator!!

Is the slush inhaler the cylinder that has a trap door on the bottom that you flip when down in the hole to trap the ice, then pull it out? If it is, they work very well.

I'd wait about 4 weeks and pick up both a slush bucket and the slush inhaler for 40% off.

I use mine all the time. Got one last year. Yes you might have one remaining little bit to scoop out but really I time saver and no slush to throw out on the ice like you do with the inhaler.

I prefer my inhaler over my Slushmaster. The SM works good, just not as good as the inhaler. That and you dont have to worry about the drill.

    • Thanks Rebel, very good answer.  I've been keeping track of the pressure for a week, now. 
    • Hey Rebel, what do you consider low and high pressure?  Perhaps a stupid question, but I just got a weather station so now I can start tracking barometric pressure. Right now the numbers don't mean much to me, been around 28-29% in the south metro the past few day and I don't know if that's low, high or middle.
    • Low pressure signals a front moving in, (Bad weather, wind may be  from the east or north) which usually puts them "on the feed", can have some hot and fast action. Likewise, a swing in the other direction, a high pressure system , (wind from the west or south) which signals clear skies and sunny weather, may do the same. The key to me, anyway, seems to be hitting it just as either front moves in. An extended low or long high may result in poor fishing. Remember the old adage, which also has to so with the pressure: "Wind from the east; fish bite the least...wind from the north , the fisherman goes not forth, wind from the south, blows the bait in the fish's mouth; wind from the west, is when the fishing is best". 
    • Those trumpers sure know how to keep things classy.
    • Is it true, the lower the pressure, the bite gets hot? Or the higher the barometric pressure the fish slow down on biting? 
    • Is that like saying "the lights are on, but nobodies  home.?
    • Newsie's where reporting on how the lights are on in the white house at 5am...   "First time in a long long time.."    
    • Beautiful!!! Can I ask what your dry brine for the side pork was?
    • Don't forget to get your Dihydrogen Monoxide detector as well!!! That's what we really need to be worried about!! Especially on and around lakes!
