some of my buds laughed at me at first but now differ, I bought a delta brand Packer 45, storage box for your truck or whatever. has a lockable lid, heavy black plastic built to last, I put a divider in on one end and am able to store all my tipups there, the rest of the box has the ability of holding my vex, heater and tank(5lb),small batery for lights and fan, 5 rods/reels, squeegy, auger extention, flood light,scooper, folding chair, and a tray I have the length of the opening, 3" deep,x 3" wide holds all the small stuff, there is only 4 things that i need to grab to go fishing, my portable, auger,minnow bucket and the BOX.
I built a sled 30" wide 5' long with sidewalls and lid with a spot on the back for the BOX, to pull with the snowmobile. so far am very pleased with the way its all working. have pics if interested.

oranthal,
What's your e-mail address?

I built a box last year that holds Arctic six tip ups (never tangle), 3-4 rods, and two small boxes of tackle. The whole thing is the perfect size to fit under my lazer auger.

I was tired of the abuse that the tackle would take when traveling by snowmobile. It works great from some aspects, but probably a little over kill. (can't think of one time I ever needed six tip ups on one trip)

I'm not sure how to post a photo here, but if you post your email address, I'll send you a photo I have scanned.

stiff, my e-mail is rm349@hotmail.com a picture would be great, what you have sounds a little big for what i want but maybe not, i would still like a picture.

what i'm looking for is some that i can carry on the end of a auger carried over my shoulder.

thanks everyone

Get a Croxton Pond Bag I built a box last year that I thought was the cats meow. But it was big and bulkey to transport. After seeing to croxton bag I bought one of those and his is by far the best purchase I made this year for ice gear. I can get 7 rods into or 4 rods and 4 tip-ups depending on what and how I am fishing. Plus alot of tackle I have 6 tackle trays that I have various things in and all those fit. Plus the chipper dipper rod holders. It wouldn't appear that you could put that much in one and I was skeptical at first but after I got it I realized the possiblities are endless. My dad saw mine at Christmas and he said to me that would my a good christmas present for me so now he has on as well.

I forgot to mention it has backpack straps so you can just put it on your back and go. You can find them under the gear section on this web page. They are called the ice gear bag.

    •     Well just in some of the data and articles I read, which might be fake news I don't really know. It looked like the amount/lbs of walleye were in the lake just that there are a lot of large ones and not many small ones.......The data also showed that the bait fish were really dropping in amounts/numbers.....   Interesting to see that a report from someone like yourself is just like I head from the guy I met at upper red. Thought maybe he was pulling my string or something when he told me the fishing was great, then seen the DNR shut the lake down.
    •   Thats the thing, I can't find really any good pictures of one. I was given this auger a few days ago buy a guy who didn't use or want it.  He only used it once when he forgot his power auger. There is a string with a price tag on it for $89. It was sitting in his machine shed in a corner collecting dust.   I cleaned up the auger and touched it up. There was a slight ding in the auger flighting up a turn or two from the bottom. That I fixed. However,  the mounting head for the blades didn't have any of the original powder paint damaged, none had flaked off, and there was no rust spots. The blades where rusted up but not damaged. I assume if they were bent the powder paint would have expanded & flaked off. The two blade angles seem to look like they are how they should be. So I'm really kinda leaning that the blade mounts might not be bent with the way it looks.    If I look at the shaver blades from the top or bottom they look like a normal shaver blade. However, when looked at from the side they seem to have a very slight curve that matches the blade mount. Did jiffy have a design like this different from the others? So I'm confused.......what would be the odds of both the blade mount sides being bent to what looks like exact angles.......if they were bent what is the odds of both blades seeming to conform to the bends without cracking or breaking........I measured from one outside blade edge to the other and got 8in......but I know 8in augers can go from a range of 7.5in-8.5in depending on brand and other things......If the blade mounts were bent I would think some powder paint would have flaked off.......I'll do the ice bucket trick.....was hoping someone had one or could chime in. It looks a little like a design between a flat shaver and a curved blade if it's not bent......I do really like the design if that is what it is meant to be. I also love the blade cover being a rubber that is tight and doesn't fall off. I just really don't know if they are bent or not bent. Confusing.....Also wondering if flat shaver blades would work on it or if I would need to find a set of Jiffy blades that had a slight curve to them.....
    • I wax every exposed part of the string. 
    • BD!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i wasnt good enough for a lakeside lot!!!!!!!!!!!
    •   Is that you, or the back of BD then?
    • well, that picture he posted?????????? that was my boat and i was part owner of that dock if that tells ya anything!!!!!!!!! yea he's been there!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    •   Ok but you told BigDave huh? Maybe he'll give it up?
    • Hi guys,   I am a beginner and just purchased a Matthew Halon bow last year.  However, I haven't waxed the bowstring and figured I should do it before this season starts.   My bowstring doesn't seem to have any colors on it showing where to avoid waxing it.    Can somebody explain or direct me to a video on where to avoid waxing on the bowstring of a Matthew Bow?  I know the part about rubbing the wax into the string good, but I am unsure which part of the bowstring to avoid waxing exactly.    Thank you.
