  1. The up is a big place. How far are you looking to go. The prime area i would look is on either manistique lake ( big or little) in curtis. One of the top walleye lakes in michigan.
  2. I have a handheld garmin gps. It is color touch screen oregon 550t. Last fall i purchased a lakemaster cd to upload maps thinking that would be the cat's meow i soon realized that it is pretty much useless. I could barely see the contour lines in my living room and outside it was almost impossible no matter how i held or shielded the unit from glare. Has anyone else experienced this problem? I called garmin and the tech told me they don't support this product anymore and i should try to return it to the store i bought it from. The copyright is 2009. Are the lakemaster charts really no good any more? Feeling pretty fed up with electronics that don't work. Does anyone know of other lake maps with different color contour lines? I see garmin has the midwest maps but the tech told me the contour lines were the same colors...brown on blue:eek:
  3. Well true to their word strikemaster replaced the charger, free of charge and that seemed to do the trick. Thanks to the customer service lady i'm back in action.
  4. Jason, Looked at the gator. I've heard good things. The idea behind these is sound because it should be a simple system: battery, dc motor, switch. Plus i believe electric motirs have better low end torque. Who hasn't ad problems with batteries though? As many problems as gas motors have, it seems to me that it is usually an electric problem.
  5. Thanks for the tip. I live 5 miles from jays in gaylord. I'll check it out.
  6. I recently submitted a negative post. In order to keep balance with the universe here is a positive one. 3 yrs ago i put a moose county plow on my gruzzly 600. Best move i've made in awhile. Great plow handles deep northern michigan snow and makes clearing the driveway kind of fun. I had a few minor problems and their customer service stepped up. No questions asked. Highly recommend their company and i see they have a new line of plows for atv and utv. Looking for something to move snow..they have it!
  7. And i've got he drill. Is there a special auger attatchment. I don't thin my chuck is big enough?
  8. This is a fyi post about my opinions on the strikemaster electra 1200 dp auger. Overview: piece of junk...expensive anchor. Details: i recieved this auger as a christmas present 2 years ago. 1 st problem no receipt. Put together auger and charged it up for rcommeneded time. Couldn't get out to fish for a few days. When i did...no juice:mad: ok should have charged it the night before but shouldn't it hold a charge. Used it twice more. Ran ok but only about 20 hpoles through 6" ice. Pretty disapointed in perfomance, ut better than hand auger. Stored in garage. Last winter charged it up and hit the ice no juice ok after talking eith service center we realize bad battery. He in forms me the "ice" auger can't be left outside?? Wtf buy new battery $440 into his thing. Used a few times no problem, but disapointing battery life on new battery as well no more than 15 holes through 5-6" ice:confused: Store it inside this time. Put charger on it per manual. Green light on charger. figure got it this time. Charge before first trip. Drive 6 guys an hour and a hakf with only auger on full charge....doesn't work at all:mad::mad: wtf ffff:confused: Calked strikemaster..left message.. No response. Emailed...no response...emailed again...no response...called again talked to someone live offered to service it if i send it in. Wonder who is paying for that....oh right me. We'll see if they fix it and charge me. Will not be happy at all. Would not recommend this product!!!
  9. Holy cow. Really makes me re-evaluate my safety procedures for small boat fishing....or really any boat fishing.
