Strike Master Slush Master???

Recommended Posts

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 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.

    • Surface water temps in Ely are 69-71 on the lakes we visited.  I think that’s a really fast warm up though and the actual spawning depth temps are lower.  I haven’t seen any bass bedding activity and the 18-19 inch smallies I’ve been catching are all fat and egg laden.     They’re sitting deeper than usual this time of year too.  The walleyes are are still shallow.
    • Pumper don't forget to register your bird.
    • Had 3 long beards come out gobbl8ng and running but not to me.  Had them all fired up but they obviously had another destination in mind.
    • I didn’t know grackles fished either.  Interesting. 
    • Was checking back to see you with a bird pic @Borch
    • So this is not a new thing!  Interesting.  I keep finding more and more complex behavior in so many of these "dumb" animals!  So many of them are anything but dumb.
    • When I was a kid, we used to have a pond in our yard. We would keep fish and minnows in there. The grackles would clean in out! We had to resort to putting a cover over it.
    • Last Thursday on a visit to my sister in Rock Rapids IA, we made a circuit through the Island Park there.  At the low dam just past the former railroad bridge which is now a walking path we saw a group of grackles fishing at the edge of the white water where it ran against the rocks at the shore line.  There probably were a dozen or so all told moving back and forth and some on the rocks at the other shore line.  In something like half an hour or less we saw various of the birds bring out minnows and eat them on the shore to a total of at least 8.  They also contested for the better fishing spots and tried to horn in on other birds' catches;   they would fly out to quite a bit up on shore with a catch to eat it there. I never expected to see grackles fishing.  I never heard of that before, but then it wouldn't be the first time I didn't know about something relatively common.
    • I've seen deer there, too.  I go by there on my way to work about 3:30 am S S & M.
