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..

    • Fishing a mid lake Hump that came up to 45ft. Caught most of the fish between 50-61. We did catch some on the top of the hump in the evening. 
    • How deep were the trout running?  We heard ultra deep on Crow to 30 ft.  The 30 ft number came from people actually catching them.   Thanks for the pics!  I like the fly rod smallie.
    • try the raid spray on grass at bottom. 
    • Here are some pictures from this years trip!
    • How do you keep ants off your feeders, especially hummingbird and oriole feeders? I've tried Toro and Raid sprays on the post but it seeks the birds don't like that smell either and i don't see many for a while. Has anyone else experienced that? Any good ideas?
    • I should’ve looked closer - I have an eyes open pic too. 😌  Tough to tell sometimes on my phone screen.  
    • Among other wilds that have moved into our urban areas, we can now add loons.  There is a breeding pair on the lake formerly known as Calhoun, mostly staying on the west and northwest sides.  But there is also a bunch of yearlings fishing the east side, numbering maybe six or seven and so unafraid that they come right up to the 36th Street dock and try to steal suckers being used for musky bait.  Maybe the call of the wild is not really so alien to the South side of Minneapolis, but it looks like the loons have moved in and can be heard calling from time to time. 
    • Sounds like you guys gave her heck up there to find them. I'd be praying thanks, too if I got that one on! ☺️
    • Quick recap:   Weather was too darn “nice”!  Upper 80’s - 90’s; no wind to speak of; mostly sunny. Water temps were anywhere from 64 - 71 depending on location and day.   We looked the lake over from end to end, marking up our map and returning to some places where we saw fish either later the same day or a couple days later.  We could literally see the transition from spawn to post spawn happening during our stay.  Being new to both muskie fishing and that lake, we spent time in dead water as much as good water but feel like we got a pretty good handle on how to go about setting up a more efficient return visit.  It was a lot work and long hours but I’d go back this weekend if I could so I must’ve enjoyed it.   A few pics as hoped for:
    • big dave 2 and leech, darn good lookin meals!!!!  Dave have a good weekend!!!!
