  1. Fish with a lamprey attached to it

    I thought all lampreys were bad. I know on Lake Superior we were told to get rid of them in the past!
  2. Camera compass

    I used the Aqua Vu Mo-pod 3. Its a little more, but its wireless & very precise! Check them out. http://www.aquavu.com/Products/AV-LCD-Series-AV710-A715c-AV360LCD-AV740c-AV760c-AV760cz_2/Aqua-Vu-Mo-Pod-3
  3. Aqua vu HD700i or Marcum VS825SD

    I have the slightly older 760CZ with no "i" at the end. The sunshield helps a ton. Great design. The new "i" models are way brighter & also have a sun shield. The Aqua Vu HD 700i is the best camera on the market!
  4. Kdrill or Nils

    I just used the Nils on a buddies M18 drill; not the fuel model. Very impressed! Super light weight & cuts like butter!
  5. Aqua vu HD700i or Marcum VS825SD

    I would get the Aqua Vu HD 700i. That camera looks awesome. I have the Aqua Vu 760CZ with the old style video rca jack. I really like that camera too, but the Aqua Vu HD 700i camera is so much clearer. Aqua Vu is always moving forward and makes great products.
  6. Nils Master with Drill

    I am thinking about this Nils drill setup for my new Ice castle. Thanks for the post Frank!
  7. Underwater Cameras

    The Marcum Recon looks like a copy cat from the Aqua Vu micro cameras. Do not get me wrong I love my Marcum flashers, but it seams like they are following Aqua Vu.
  8. Marcum- customer service

    Marcum customer service is awesome!
  9. LOL. I made history! That is not my house. I have basically a LOW addition now that I put the back two holes in. Mine is a 21'-0" love it. Thinking 16" of ice for mine. Cannot wait!
  10. Hey everyone. I have been shopping around for a while looking for an Ice Castle fish house that would work for my families & friend’s needs. I am now a proud owner a 2017 8'-0" x 21'-0" with a galvanized hydraulic Berkon frame! I found Paul's Small Engine online when I did an internet search. The owner actually picked up the phone & helped me out a ton online before I stepped foot in his building. He took his time to help me find the perfect unit for me. We discussed used & new options. If you want a great price on a new or used unit this is the place to go! On used models he had his pricing listed online as well. He blew away other ice castle dealers pricing. It was well worth the 2 hour drive up to see this place. I am super pumped & cannot wait to hit the hard water! http://www.paulssmallengine.com/s/search/inventory/availability/In Stock/brand/Ice Castle/sort/best-match http://www.paulssmallengine.com/
  11. Underwater Cameras

    I was at the fishing show & had talked with the Aqua Vu staff. Their new HD cameras look amazing! I thought the pictures on the AV760 was great, but these are super sharp. They also stated that you can view them clearly in the direct sun light.
  12. True. I will be looking at the shows, but just wanted some extra knowledge ahead of time. You never know when a great deal pops up. Thanks.
  13. It sounds like the ice castle mechanical issues have been solved & fixed over the years. Can you be more specific to what the mechanical issues are now a days? Thanks.
  14. I really would like a yetti or firebrand, but might be going with an ice castle for the price. That way I could get a galvanized frame & the taller height & still way cheaper. Unless I go used.
