  1. Ice

    Hey thanks for the replies everybody, I called up to a few places and it sounded like trucks are driving out on most lakes around there. I'll still take the sportsman just to be a little safer though.
  2. Ice

    Wondering if any body has been up by the bowstring, round lake, Winnie area lately and how the ice was holding up after the storms and wind that's moved threw. Looking to go up there next weekend and get some last ice fishing in as we can't even walk out down here in southern mn!
  3. I have a helix 7 and I love it in the winter time for the maps, for a flasher I still bring my vexilar as I feel it's better over the humming bird
  4. I'm on my 2nd year with my jiffy pro 4 lite and love it, never had a problem with it even while it's negitve 20 out, just have to give it a little throttle when starting. Augur cuts nice and is really easy to use, if it where me and I didn't go the propane route I'd try to find a good deal on the regular ion and not the new ion x.
  5. Looks like lows will be below freezing every night in the forcast as of now with Temps getting slightly above freezing during the day, could be just the cold weather push we need to get winter started
  6. Had to break threw 1/2 an inch of Ice duck hunting this morning down here in southern mn
  7. Ya with that bigger battery I think it would take care of most people's worries or doubts about the ion.
  8. Just curious if anyone out there spent the money for a new ion yet? I'd have to imagine there would be a sale somewhere before the season hits
  9. Maby to be pryed open in case of emergency? Not sure either
  10. If they do I don't think you'd want to
  11. My dad bought a small roll of led strips online for like under 10 bucks and you you cut them to length of strip you want and then It kinda presses down on the wire to make the connection. He just runs one strip in the middle pole on top in his otter portable and it lights up way better than the built in clam ones you can buy. He just runs alligator clips to his vexlair instead of a battery for how little energy they use.
  12. Hope the original poster got his question answered
  13. Here in southern mn I think like rl_sd said shore lines may be a problem, we have already had a few Trucks break thru the ice this year as it seems like we haven't been able to get more than 12 13in of ice on any lake here. The ice will still be around for quite a while but 40 degree days arnt doing the ice any justice.
  14. Depends on your location too our forcast shows no cool down in sight really yet
  15. I don't mind it much either as long as it's about a half to 3/4 mile walk or less basically.
