  1. Rookie Wheelhouse question

    I have had a wheelhouse for several years and like Wanderer and 1lessdog say leave the house up and use the slush cones to seal around the holes. One this I have started is to always have the extension on the auger as it is more comfortable drilling w/o having to bend down so much.

  4. Extended run generator setup

    Thanks guys for the all tips, I will modify the tank cap and go from there.
  7. Honda Extended Run Tank Setup

    Thanks for all the info. I did go on the bay and found this deal for under $30. I plan on just sticking the hose into a 6 gallon tank. Will that work as long as it is on the bottom?

    I am in need of new tires for my 2012 wheelhouse. Any suggestions on a good place to get them? Assume I just need to match the load rating of the current one? Thanks for the help.
  13. Clam 2017 Clearance Sale

    The Clam page has stated their 2017 summer clearance. Some very nice deals
  14. Aqua vu HD700i or Marcum VS825SD

    I have the VS825SD and really like it. (The VS825C is color only, SD does not mean SD slot) The SD uses a better Sony camera which captures a better image with less light in the water, and it comes with the $50 camera panner included in the box. The SD also lets you set the camera to color or to black/white, to fine tune to the viewing conditions. The color-only cameras gray-out or brown-out as the light conditions darken. The SD has a new monitor which is 3x brighter, so you can easily see it in daylight conditions, either on the ice or in a boat. And the SD has on-screen information including the camera direction, depth and water temp, the previous model doesn't have any of that info.
  15. Tip Up Line-Why Can't They Get it Right?

    I agree with the backing for the fly line. Never had any problems and the stuff seems to get better with age.
