  1. tip-up fishing help

    How shallow is to shallow for norhterns? We plan to set up four tip ups this weekend and will stager them from shallow to deep waters along a break line. So what is to shallow?
  2. tip-up fishing help

    I have used a tip-up a few times with little success, any tips that might help would help out greatly. will fish for pike and eyes or whatever will bite. How to set it up (braided line to the hook or leader), hook/lure, bait, depth? Thanks
  3. Running up the score

    Cowboys should have played better then...done!
  4. Sunflower noise

    I put duct tape on one side but no change.
  5. How should I Spend $100

    Just saw that the cabelas underwater 5.5 screen camera is on sale. Is that worth checking out? I was thinking about the heater. I have a 20lb tank but could use a new heater of some sort. Any suggestions?
  6. How should I Spend $100

    I have $100 burning a hole in my pockets and can't think of any ice fishing supplies to buy. I have everything I really need for fishing tackle, rods, portable, vex, gps w/lakemaster. What would you buy with the $100.00?
  7. Sunflower noise

    Mine will keep doing it all day/night. I just try and sing along with it to keep my self busy, god know I can't catch fish.
  8. Sunflower noise

    I did that too but doesn't always work. Last night it was worse than usual. It was mid 20's outside when it was happening so don't think it was anything to do with the air temp. Not sure, just don't want to blow up!
  9. Sunflower noise

    Why does my sunflower heater make a loud high pitched hum/whistle? I have a 5' hose with the propane outside and every 10min. it starts humming. The only solution I have found is to cover one of the holes (air intake I think) on the side of the sunflower mounting. Not sure if I am going to blow up or what? Can some one help? Thanks
  10. When do you move?

    Just wondering when people move to shallow/deep water through out the day when fishing for Walters and Crappie?

    magic minnow how do you go about finding weedlines? I have a vex, can I find it useing that?
  12. Car gps for fishing??

    The XOG is no longer being made, but I got the Nuvi 550 which is the newer better version, with a micro sd lakemaster chip and it works great! Nice crossover that is waterproof and quit durable. I got mine on amazon for $199 the micro sd chip was $110, but well worth it IMO.

    Cool thanks, I guess we'll just have to search them out.

    Are weed beds the best place to find sunnies this time of year? Is there a way to find weed beds using my vex? if there are weeds in a spot in the summer will there still be weeds there now?

    are there some directions on how to convert these led lights to be used with a flasher battery?
