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.

I would go with a graph. You don't need to watch TV when fishing.

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.

    •   Anything you post on here from now on has no merit or credibility as far as I'm  concerned.  I wasn't even going to respond to this, but feel what you posted needed to be. If you wish to call my mother a dam, you will, the same as you called another persons mother that. I don't give a rats butt what your political views are, however when you start getting into personal attacks you had better look in a mirror. You don't probably don't know anyone on here personally, yet you attack someone on a personal bases, call there mother a dam and ridicule them because they had a lower portion of a leg amputated due to something they can control, but had no control whether they have the illness and sometime that illness makes you pay a price. BD2 has that illness he can control to a certain extent where he can lead a normal life, however there will be complications and from what I know of him he will accept that. I don't know DB2 personally, I've never met him, I've debated against some thing on this where he and I have had different views, I respect his opinions even though I disagree on many, BUT I SURE AS H--- DON"T ATTACK HIS ANCESTORY OR  ANY TYPE OF DISABILLITY

    • Great to see this in Minnesota. Trout has been on my bucket list and will happen this year. The mix of largies and smalls really works for this show and plays into the guys heads. I was pulling for Hack. He's become one of my favorites. I think these guys are gaining a new appreciation for MN.  Except maybe the Lane Bros.

    •   Yeah, you better stick with Bob's girl above old timer. She wouldn't swallow what your selling either!
