Does anyone know if these ice fishing boxes are still available for sale? I haven't seen them at the St. Paul Ice Fishing show for a few years now and know they where built by someone in WI? I assume they went out of business, but wondering if you can still get them as a individual buyer? Any info would be helpful! Thanks!!

The owners are about 15mins from me. I will give them a call tomorrow and see what I can find out.

If there is even the most miniscule possibility something can fall down the hole,...IT WILL

I tried Reeds, no luck. I believe they are made by Maverick Manufacturing in WI? I have done a google search and only find old articles about Finicky's Fish Factory, nothing current from the last few years.

I take my boys fishing also. What are they? I'm always trying to keep their intrest going and have an intrest in anything that acheives this.

I do not think they make them anymore.

They used to sell them in the Outdoor Pro Store here at FM:

!!!Click Here To Read More About them!!!!

I have had one since about 2000 and used up at my perm on ML all the time. Still have it, but do not use it much.

I will see if I can dig up some images for you guys to see.

It is a pretty cool piece of equipment.

The orange slot on the back is an air vent for the heater:



The front side has a nice "port hole" for looking inside when closed up. It also has a flag and a red light that comes on when the flag is tripped. Plus a nice large carrying handle.



The inside is the heart of the Finicky's. On the right you have the heater that keeps the hole open, even on negative temp days, plus provides great light while fishing at night. Center bottom, temp gauge. Center top is your spool. Right side you have your power source, jigg'in motor and arm, switch for off, medium/pause and fast jigg'in and a nice little piece of foam to hand your jig on.



Other great features of the Finicky's Fish Factory is it is stained/painted black to absorb heat so you do not have to run the heater on sunny days and the access cover flips forward on the ice to provide a place to put your knees when bringing in a fish (keeps them warm and dry).

I firmly believe the Finicky's Fish Factory is going to be one of those things, which in 20 years will be a device we look back on and find cool cool

Ok found them. They are made by Maverick Manufacturing (920)446-2703. You can order them directly, or through Reed's.

Thanks to all who replied!
