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 hunt zone 1.  Very interesting to see those numbers.  From what I have seen the herd is showing signs of rebound in our neighborhood.  We're a ways off from being able to tolerate hunters choice, but we're seeing deer again finally.  I agree the herd is in better shape than 2-3 years ago when many people saw no deer and no signs of deer.     So what does it all mean?  I suspect the widespread pain of the glut in major swaths of zone 1 for the dark years has woke some up to the idea of passing does.  There was certainly more opportunity with fewer bucks-only zones and larger doe tag numbers in certain DPAs.    What will be interesting is how the DNR responds to more deer on the landscape up here but fewer does being shot.  We had two doe tags in our group this year and we proudly tossed them in the fire, unfilled, at the end of season.

    • I have this problem from time to time but not often.  Sometimes there are little bubbles on the bottom of the transducer and sometimes the ducer isn't below the ice, sometimes it just takes 5 or 10 minutes of sitting in the hole before it starts to pick up the jig.  Other times it works flawlessly.

    • I hate to break your bubble, but your vote and other Trump voters in Minnesota were wasted votes the same as you say those who voted 3rd party were wasted.
