Fish finder! Ice fishing is on a whole separate level with a flasher!

for that money you won't be able to get a generator that will last more than a year or two, either way, definetly a flasher!! I'd rather forget my beer than forget my flasher!! smile

If I had to choose, I would say flasher.. Not to Mr Negative, but if I didn't have a job, I probably wouldn't be buying ice fishing gear right now.

Not to be mean but get a job then get a decent graph/gps combo and a generator when you have some $ saved up.

agreed. ive had a job since i was in 7th grade. it all comes down to how bad you want to work. if you really want a job you will take whatever is given to you... my advice is what do you do more ice fish or open water or whatever you like better. spend your budget money on your favorite thing and when you get more money then you can start upgrading other things. just my 2 cents. im only 18 so i can kinda see where your coming from. all though i have to be pretty thankful i have been pretty lucky with the jobs offered to me. GOODLUCK!!

I would put that 200 dollars into the bank and get a job then spend some money closer to the time Im going to use what I buy.

Why buy something for ice fishing 6 month before we even start to get ice.

    • I'm getting pretty far ahead of myself, but I'm beginning to wonder if another trailer ramp spring would be the way to go for raising the back bunk.  I've never used one before, but I'm sure you can set the tension so it's well below the maximum and it wouldn't take so much effort to pull it down.  Just put up some guide rails and spring latches to latch it in the down position.  Any thoughts?

    • Well that sure "Trumps" anything else going around and around on in this site today!
    • Yeah you're right, my bad. Yes, the line is awful. 
    • It was a false start on the OL and another one could have been called on the 2nd attempt.  The OL is just BAD, probably the worst I've ever seen for a vikings team.  It seems like few teams put a high priority on the OL.  A good OL can make an average qb, wr, and rb look awfully good when it gives them time and opens holes.  A bad OL can also make a great qb, wr, rb look awfully bad.
    • OLE77, They did replace the valve cover when they did the STP treatment at 92,000 miles; it made no lasting difference.    delcecchi, I have the 5.3 engine.  I'm guessing I need new rings, that seems to be what everyone tells me.   Down2Earth, When I initially brought it in, Village told me they had never heard of the problem.  When I returned (I had then googled it and heard about the AFM and many, many people who have gone through this), they changed their tune and pointed the finger at GM as not letting them properly fix it.  What a joke.   I've attached a photo of the plugs I changed out last week.  This is now a monthly ritual for me.  Great, really looking forward to changing these out in my driveway this Jan.  Grrrrrr.
    • I bought 2 fans off Amazon for $18 each and there 110v. There 5"x 5" and about 4" deep. I was thinking about mounting them under the heater. Or would it be better to but them in a woodbox and mount on to?. They say there good for 69,000 hr of run time.
    • To bad we had an holding penalty that made us attempt it from the 7.
