And as mentioned, the new Solo auger from StrikeMaster..

Am sure we will see a few new things from Lindy Tackle as well.

I love going to the ice fishing show in St Paul to see all the new stuff, just wish it was a month earlier. Why they have it when people could be on the ice is beyond me.

I saw a demo of a new lighted bobber by Lindy-Little Joe-awesome product! I think it's called the "Splash Light". When you cast it, as soon as it hits the water, it lights up, reel it up out of the water, it goes out. It is identical to their balsa bobbers except for this feature. They say it should last about 30 hours as far as battery life, then you can use it like a regular bobber. The video I saw said they wouldn't be available until January of next year. Not sure of the cost either. whistle

Saw this too! pretty neat! only thing is im gonna end up with a box of dead bobbers! lol we night fish quite a bit and thirty hours is like three trips out so i figured im gonna need about a dozen lol but i wouldnt mind using them and handing themoff to the little kid down at the river when im done with them either!

But does it light up during the day?? That would use batteries up

Yes it lights up anytime its in the water or wet! so yes it would waste the batteries during the daylight hours......

The "Splash Light"...It's only short fall, if you consider it a shortfall... is it has a 30 hour use life span, then it is a conventional slip float...non replaceable battery.

So you have a handy lighted float tell it wears out, than a conventional float to add to you float box.

So if I get this right, you pay for a state of the art bobber but it is only going to be good for it's intended purpose for a mere 30 hours, then it can just be used as a regular bobber. Seems as though it wouldn't be that hard to make it so the battery could be replaceable. Sorry if this sounds like a worthless gripe.

I agree 100%

Don't really know of anything new for the year as of now.

It's a way to milk more money out of us!!!

    • Hey @rl_sd who had the meat on sale? Looks great btw
    • chicks maybe exploring what the beak is for
    •   You can also be a little creative with the leftover meat.  For example: The wife and I will whip up a spanish rice mixed in with the pork and make Enchiladas or heat the pork on the stove top, mix in some BBQ sauce and make quesadillas (the grandkids love them).   There's more to pulled pork than sandwiches.  
    • that is great!!!!   good for you guys!!!!
    • Your right rs_ld,  a full smoker is the way to go, leftovers can always be frozen and re heated..good eats.
    • 195 degrees on these butts. Like they say, if you are going to spend 9 hrs smoking 5# of meat, you just as well spend the same amount of time smoking 45#. The local grocery had these on sale so had a few friends take the offer to throw a roast on for them. Took two off early for slicing  Pulling the rest cost them each a beer though!
    • Very good stuff, kinda tasted like ribs with this recipe,  I'll keep at it til I find the right one!! Good luck moon lake!!
    • It will be interesting to see how the Warriors react in free agency.  Will they be able to keep the team together?  It seems like all these guys value winning above a paycheck so they might be willing to sign deals that will still allow the team flexibility to keep good role players around them.    
    • That's too bad.  The fish were ON FIRE up there.  I went out with my dad and uncle with our tiller walleye boat, and hardly a clue what we were doing, and we crushed them!  Ended up with 118 pounds of packaged salmon fillets.  I think I can honestly say it was the most fun fishing trip I've had in my life.  Here's my biggest of the trip, 25 pounds.    
    •   It's amazing to see a thoroughly talented team like Cleveland just get dissected like a back alley pick up team. I agree--GS will be THE team to beat for several more years if they keep their nucleus. I think we can make them sweat a little bit now, though, so that's pretty exciting for a change!
