What is the cost for this new? I can never seem to find it on here but hear people talking about it.

I bought one and love it. Works great for hauling gear on your wheeler or sled. Can't go wrong.

Great gear system for all year really.

I use mine for many things, canoe trips, hike in fishing, pack rods, lots of stuff.

Well worth the investment!

And I used to swear by the round Frabill 10-inch tip-ups, but with "the bag" I can fit four or five rods in the center compartment, three tackle boxes in one side compartment and three HT Polar tip-ups in the other side compartment. Good-bye Frabills, hellow Polar, and the whole thing is self contained.

Great deal. Really great deal at early ice, when you're on foot and can strap the Crox on your back and only have to carry a hand auger and a bucket with some bait to boot. Love those hands free.

Lots of room but I still cant get the ice scoop in one the way I would like. Im woried it will snap a rod. Also the zippers should be 2 ways. They always seem to be on the end your not.
Overall its a good bag and like stfcatfish said great at 1st. ice.
I would like to see a hard side model made just a bit bigger.

Very nice for those of us who fish outside and like to hike in to a spot. Carries all of my goodies and more. I wouldn't go without it now.

I made a Small 8" folding scoop, fits in the Croxton tote bag easy. I also have a Gremlin minnow scoop with my Vex, half the time that is all I ever need to keep the hole slush free.

I have not dragged around a full size scoop since my last Jiffy Scoop went down a hole on DL, 3 years back.

I've got the big bag, and will never go back to a bucket for my rods and tackle. I can fit all my tackle on one side compartment, and 12 cans on the other, with several rods, a dipper, rattle reels, etc in the main compartment. My wife bought the bag from this site for me grin.gif
One improvement suggestion - I wish there were two zippers on each side compartment so I could open it on the top, and not have to open it all the way.

GET ONE THEY ARE THE BEST I HAVE HAD 8 RODS IN THE MAIN COMPARTMENT AND I AM TALKING 30" WALLEYE RODS WITH BIGGER REELS. I ALSO HAVE MY JIFFY DIPPER IN THERE AS WELL AS ROD HOLDERS AND THE OLD CRIBBAGE BOARD. IN THE ONE SIDE POCKET I HAVE 5 TACKLE BOXES AND THE OTHER SIDE I HAVE ALL THE SURGICAL TOOLS THE PLIERS, SCISSORS, MOUTH SPREADER, DIGITAL SCALE, PROPANE TORCH FOR THE STOVE, CAMERA, AND INFLATIBLE SEAT CUSION. I NEVER THOUGHT THAT IT WOULD BE POSSIBLE TO PUT THAT MUCH STUFF IN IT BUT I HAVE IT ALL IN THERE RIGHT KNOW. I AGREE THE ONE THING THAT THEY NEED TO FIX IS TO PUT TWO WAY ZIPPERS ON THE SIDE POCKETS BUT IT ISN'T TO BAD WITH OUT THEM. THE BACKPACK STRAP ARE AWESOME. REALLY COOL PRODUCT IT IS THE BEST THING I BOUGHT THIS LAST YEAR.

Hey Stfcatfish you don't like those Fragil tip-ups either eh. I heard of 20# pike railroading them and still not setting er off. They just get hung.

Just got mine in the mail last night. Two days from the time I ordered it till the time it arrived on my doorstep. Pretty good service! This looks like it will be a good deal. I was getting so tired of the mess and tangle from the 5 gal buckets. I had already broken one rod as well so from a protection standpoint they look like a good deal.

    • I've never tried my booya poppin pad crashers Yet but are they really bad or just not as good? Just wondering.
    • Well, I got the bow out today and it took about a dozen shots to get it sighted in then I shot this group at 30 yards.    I am impressed with this CB. The trigger is really thing that I'm not impressed with but I have nothing to compare it to. It seems like there is 40 acres of creep before it releases.
    • Ya I don't know do I dare say I almost like it better than deer hunting... Cant sit with him tonight but came up with a game plan wouldn't be surprised if he sticks one tonight  
    • I am still hunting yet Moose. I go to Nebraska in a few weeks. I am archery in mn. starting to see more active birds. Going to wait and shoot a tom. Nice having 4 birds already on the team. How does a guy post pictures right from your cell phone to here so I can post Dillons info on his tom.
    • Went out today in the metro areas without any luck. Didn't even see any ramps in the usual spots, and I thought they were earlier than the morels. 
    • Day 4 Morning   I think we were both tired of trying to call birds across private fences, so we decided to try going for the distant gobbles I heard when I shot my bird.   There was actually a decent gravel road that went into this area and allowed us to have an easy walk into where I felt the birds should be.   We got in early to try to get there ahead of any other hunters, but it didn't seem to matter.   Forest roads were abundant, so walking was easy.  We went right to the spot I had a bird gobble from a few days prior, and waited.     It didn't take long for the flock to start making noise, and we only had to move a little ways to get close to them.   As usual the turkeys all came down and went away from us.  They set up shop on a long ridge and seemed content to just stay there.   We had no easy approach so set up our own position on the forest road we were on which was covered in tracks.   Other birds were gobbling in the distance the opposite way, and when one sounded close we chose to go for him.   Nothing came of that little walk other than the loss of a $65 custom call...  On the plus side we found a nice deer skull.     Back to the flock, one gobbler would respond to a crow call, so we knew they were still up on the hill.  We made a painfully slow walk straight at them since they were high enough up they hopefully wouldn't see us.  When we got to the timber they stopped responding, so we guessed they went over the top.  We worked our way up and found where they had been feeding.  Just shy of the top we set up to call just in case they were over the lip of the hill.     We received an immediate response to some lite hen yelps and clucks.  A hen with the gobbler was not at all pleased that we were there.  We got into a bit of a yelling match with her.  She was coming closer, dragging the gobbler with her.  When I heard drumming I motioned for my uncle to get the gun up since he was still calling.  In a few moments I saw a tail fan cresting the hill.  He angled left, looked around, went behind a tree.  I heard him go into strut and drum...   BANG!           
    • Day 3 Afternoon   We went for a short walk into the area I thought I heard the birds gobble in the distance when I shot my bird.  We couldn't find any birds and were nearly done with our walk when I glassed across a cow pasture and saw birds up in some trees!   I quickly checked the map and found that they were dangerously close to public land.   We made a dash for the car.   The walk in to this spot was pretty short and very close to houses and the farm that had the cows.   We ended up close to the fence and I felt the turkeys we saw should be just below us.   Some whitetail deer spooked and then turkeys started filing past along the fence.  I counted four or five hens, but no gobbler.  We stayed a bit and crow called thinking maybe a flock got busted up.  In the end we just backed out without spooking the hens off.
