New Ice Scoop

8 posts in this topic

Got to give this NEW product a thumbs up or better yet all my fingers. It is the BIG Dipper Hockey Stick Ice Scoop, with a 30" ruler on the handle. I pick up 2 or 3 metel scooper every summer Walleye fishing. No way with the Big Dipper, it floats - I tried it. I banged it on the ice to clean out the shaveing and no bent or cracked scoop.No more sore back with this long handle or wet knees. Did not take long to clean my 10" ice hole with this baby. Folks it takes a lot to get me excited over a new product and I'm excited over this one.

Ron,

I definately have to agree with you. Banged one of those on a concrete floor for three days constantly during the Ice show and didn't do any damage to it. A big thumbs up in my book.

PW,

You were a great salesman showing how those things could take a beating. I bought one, tried it out this weekend and like Ron was very impressed. Good product, good salesmanship.

Thanks Ron.

If you know Ron, he runs Judd's Resort on Winnie. He has a slew of Fish houses he runs. All need to have holes dipped out.

Ron has a refined eye for what works and what doesn't.

Thanks Mark for a great ice fishiing improvement.

I got to use my BigDipper this weekend (after I wrestled it away from my Dad). It works great. I like the wood handle which has better feel when you grap it with a wet hand then that cold steel. Plus the reach that you have - I can get the far hole in my house without having to get up or lean way over. Another bonus is that the plastic does not ice up either.

Now, I just wish I could have put the ruler to use.

Hi all, Im relly glad that all you guys are happy with the way the Big Dipper works. I made these scoopers to do what I needed a scoop to do and just used the best materials I could find when I decided to produce them for sale. Thanks, Mark Edevold

Perch Searcher -- I saw Hali jigs and Spoons in Grand Forks at the Scheels Store on South Washington (across from the hospital) It's on your way to Devils Lake.

    • Except for the fact that to Hillary Minneapolis/ St Paul is rural fly over territory. Outstate doesn't even exist and I would rather that rural areas are left to make their own choices rather than have what they do be dictated by the Capital.    If you ever ran a small city hall and saw the additional dollars it takes to do an infrastructure project with the USDA involved you might think a bit differently about all the " help" big government provides. 
    • Looks like we have at least 1 faithless elector so far.
    • Of the 2 candidates that had a chance at winning, Hillary was the only one that had anything resembling a plan to help rural America. Hillary's plan just didn't resonate because it basically was modernizing rural America, and rural America wants to relive a past that is no longer achievable.    Unfortunately a libertarian is probably an even worse choice for rural areas. While a libertarian would cut federal taxes, they also would significantly cut spending to things like infrastructure where rural areas have a disproportionate maintenance cost to local tax revenue ratio. The Libertarian "privatize everything" or "leave it to the states" mentality would likely lead to many roads becoming toll roads in order to pay for maintenance. And those tolls are by and large paid by locals, increasing costs of local goods and making area businesses less competitive.
    • Well, OSU is going to the playoff, and Wisconsin and Michigan are getting at large bowls. That leaves Minnesota as the #4 remaining team.
    • +1 on striker ice love mine    
    • I know of which you speak and they were full when I stopped by for my new fav Ghost Pepper beef sticks on the last weekend. Well I stopped by on the 1st-2nd and last weekend for the beef sticks! I use to cut up all my Deer until I and the wife wanted some of those more fancy brat's and sausage I just couldn't do.
    • My FXR sled jacket and bibs have the F.A.S.T Flotation Assistance system Technology in them so I get dlb duty out of the suit sledding and Ice fishing. Right now Cab's up in Rogers has the FXR outdoor suits but they aren't cheap. Love mine.    
    • Those look Great. Most of the time just crock potted them to death! 
    • Glad to hear it isn't the local 172 processor people complained about last year.    I was happy to have the needed "facilities" back this year.  Set up, skinned, sliced, diced, vacuum packed and cleaned up in 3.5 hours.  No, that doesn't include the grind, but we do take that in.
