Cordless drill/ice auger 9 Replies

     I have been using a 7 inch Eskiimo hand auger for years. I have been thinking about going to a drill/ice auger combo. Probably a 5 or 6 inch auger to be able to drill more holes. I was wondering…Continue

Thanks for that warning . I still haven't assembled my rod kit .I figure read up on it and put together sometime around St.Patrick's Day.

The handle is pretty easy. The thread wraps on the eyes get progressively more difficult as you get near the tip, the more the tip flexes the harder it gets.

EXCELLENT PERCH HAUL BRUCE!

Comment by John Sheehan on January 16, 2018 at 1:33pm

Which thread wrapper did you get John .I got a rod kit for Christmas and have to consider getting a thread wrapper. Its not a Mudhole kit its a Netcraft kit . An Ultra Light Spinning rod kit . This will be a 1st attempt at constructing a rod .

Comment by john on January 16, 2018 at 1:22pm

up date on the new ice rod. i picked up a thread wrapper from mudhole custome rods and 3 ice rod kits. ive used them and i really like the way they handle. looking forward to building a flyrod real soon

Ouch pricey!... I believe ive seen the same clip on custom rods… definitely looks to have the fun factor going on. Keep us posted on your decision.

Two strategies for bite detection sight and feel… The rod looks to be designed for mono and sight method.

has any one used a tucr precision noodle ice rod. i saw the rods on indepth out doors and they look like a very nice rod, kinda pricey, thats why i was wondering if any body has used them before i drop a hundo for a rod.

Here's a photo of the fish caught by my friends after I left for the doctor appointment. There are mostly gills, with a few perch and two crappies in the pile.

I guess they call these photos fish porn.

Bruce, I've been doing A LOT of reading on ice fishing, now that I'm in MI.  I haven't purchased any gear yet, but the few comments that I've read concerning propane augers is that you need to keep the bottle warm.  Once you're drilled your holes, shut your auger down and remove the bottle.  Take the bottle into your shack.  Probably not a good idea to lay the bottle on the ice.

I've heard that the regulators will freeze up, preventing the auger from starting.  I think I've also read that if the bottle gets really cold, it can loose pressure, which will also affect performance.

However, I have heard of some folks getting adapters so they can use a big bottle of propane (20 lbs?) to refill the little ones.  Saves money, and cuts down on the amount of trash/littering by not constantly tossing out the 1 lbs bottles of propane.
