    So how well do they really handle out in the snow, can you put them thru quite a bit?
  4. Lifetime Licenses

    In my mind it is a great investment for younger outdoorsman. I recently purchased a sportsman LTL and it is nice to go in and give them the card and have them print it up for the cost of nothing. Lets face it the price of a license isn't going to go down.
  5. Using minnows to attract larger bluegills

    Found the same thing last weekend, caught a lot of large gills on maggots all year long, then they slowed down so we tried plain #8 hooks and crappie minnows and they were hammering it, lost a few hooks they hit them so hard.
  6. Lowrance XOG vs H2O??

    The picture quality is there and the screen is a bit larger and more clear, but the H2O might be a little more accurate on the lake. The XOG is with-in 25 to 30ft accurate and on the lake thats not so bad but i think that could be closer. Haven't had problems with the screen when we were on the lake.
  7. Hand held GPS units

    Well i appreciate all the comments, went looking around some more and ended up with a Lowrance XOG on sale for 150, screen is good size and the maps look great. Haven't had it out on the ice yet but i think we will be heading out sunday to give it a try. You can't beat the feeling of getting a new toy!
  8. Recent Ice Fishing Pictures?

    Looks a great day for the both of you, especially for your boy he looks he's having a great time.
  9. New O/U this year?

    I have shot my stoger m-2000 now for three seasons and love it, same action as the SBE, just in a little cheaper case, light enough for me all day, and runs around 400 brand new compared to 1200! Stogers condor O/U got my attention a couple years ago but haven't had the opportunity to handle one or see one in action.
  10. The bug never really leaves, i have to see my vest in the closet every time i go somewhere. If it wasn't for ice fishing i think i would go nuts thinking about the months till next season!
  11. Strike Master to the rescue!!!!!

    I don't think this horse can be beat anymore, if you like jiffy great, if you like SM great, they both have the ability to do what you got them for, some people like different things GET OVER IT.
  12. Hand held GPS units

    Yeah a more comparison of the units people are using I guess, I got very limited info from the sales people I talked to, and they really couldn't tell me the advantages of one to the other between lowrance or garmin units, and the differences in the models. That is great info Bob thanks a lot, that is the stuff that no one seemed to know at all, they just pointed me to the most expensive unit they had in the case and said it can do it all and left it at that. I will keep looking through some sites and see if I can get some more comparisons. Again thanks for the info Bob.
  13. Hand held GPS units

    Thanks, i looked at some of the old threads on gps units and there wasn't really any info on any of the units just comments of people loving the lake master chips they have and marking spots with their hand held units, no real names or models. Appreciate all the input.
  14. Hand held GPS units

    Looking for some good tips on GPS units that can run the lake master chips and are easy to use, started looking at some units today and was wondering if anyone has one that they really like.

    Thanks, that does sound easy!
