crappy start of the first trip

Recommended Posts

well where to start. Went up north for the first decent trip of the year and the first day out my 1 year and 4 day old strikemaster auger broke. The weld on the inside of the top case that holds the tension spring/pull cord broke clean off. i'm guessing the weld was bad or the mold that the screw goes into was. hope i can get a hold of strikemaster before wednesday night since i am going up to winnie for 3 and half days this coming weekend. The bummer part was i had to go and buy another lazer for the weekend so i could keep fishing. Thats what i get for selling my old hand auger to a desperate buddy. i am just curious how fast i can get it fixed, so i have it buy wednesday. I will be calling first thing monday morning.

If you are headed to Winnie, if you don't plan on going up 169, maybe plan on going that route.

I don't think you are going to have any issue getting in touch with Strikemaster.. Topnotch service all the time.

They are in Big Lake(6 miles west of Elk River/169 right on Hwy 10).

You might be able to run over there on your way up to Winnie and get things all fixed up while on your way up there.

I can't say enough good stuff about their willingness to make things right.

jiggin, sorry to hear about your auger. As with anything one buys, once and a while you'll run into a "fluke". I just bought my strikemaster this year. The first issue I had was it was missing an adapter cord (I bought the Electra Lazer)-called them, and in 3 days had it in my hands. The 2nd issue I had-was my fault-fell on the ice, I broke the top cover on my auger. Send them the check, and in 3 days had the new one mounted & ready to go! They have excellent customer service!

My belief is, there are only 3 main auger companies out there, and any one of them will do what it takes to keep their customers.

I'm pretty sure I know two of the three, but what's the 3rd auger company in your opinion. I'm just curious if your thinking the same one as me.

    • Good yo hear from you again!  Hope your search for property goes well and your time in stand is fruitful.
    • Nice pics jbell! That is a nice yellow garden spider you got there.
    • I had a nice size garden spider on my garage door. It stayed there about 3 weeks. Had a mate who I assume did his business and met his doom. I finally needed to open the door so I safely caught it and let it go in the woods near our house.  Her body is about an inch long. Probably about 3 inches total.       
    • 😄i have several "pet" spiders around the deck and garage. sometimes when i'm bored i swat flies with the swatter and feed them!!!!!!
    • its wierd, my cukes the stems from the ground out look like they were died and dried out but the ends were green, plenty of flowers and producing.quite frankly, i got 2 medium size boxed of cukes in the frig i need to use or give away. i know this isnt right to say, i'm getting cucumbered out.   same with the peppers, i had to look thru a jungle to find them most of the summer as the cukes exploded and basiclly covered them. i have enough peppers for what i need, froze some for chili, and have eaten my share. and again there were no small ones coming in to keep them in the ground to make it till first frost.   my tomatoes, the ones i may be pulling soon are running out of tomatoes worth while . 
    • That's too bad, did your garden get dried out at some point? You had a pretty good start to the season and had a jump on my garden.
    • I assume you burned your deck down immediately after taking these photos.
    • Never been a big fan of webspinners, but those orb weavers are cool to look at and harmless. And this is the time of year that you seem to see them.   More of a fan of Wolf and Jumping spiders myself.  
    • Cool!  Did you take a picture when you smashed it? That big som-abatch could use a 22 through it! 😘
