Croxton Pond Ice Bag

8 posts in this topic

Just recieved my bag today for Christmas,..gosh she is good to me! Anyhow I really like it but I am having some troubles getting my rods all inside nicely. Does anyone have some helpful hints on how to get them in there. I think my biggest problem is all of my rods (4) are so different from each other in reel style and rod length, that there may not be a great way of getting them all in there. So anyone out there that has been using this bag, how do you do it?

P.S. Rick I know this topic is in the Ice Gear forum, but I wasn't allowed to post there. Why do we need permission to post there?

Croxton Pond makes several models of totes. If you have the ice tote with the 3 side compartments on it you should have plenty of room for 4-6 average sized rods in the center.

Collapsing the reel handles will help as does staggering the reels from one end to the other. I can manage up to 6 rod and reels by doing this and 4 should be no problem at all.

Give that a try, hope this helps.

Howdy All...

Just thought I'd bring this one back up to tell you this is a great product. Ordered it on 1/10, received it on 1/12. How's that for service!! So far it's contents are as follows... (4) rods, including a 33"er, 2 tip-ups, (2) small lure/gear boxes, 3 cell flashlight, head lamp, small tool pouch, a tin of Kodiak, and half a bag of chips. AND it's not even close to being full!!! I think I'll have to test it's limits as far as rod holding capability. And maybe another small box of misc. baits/lures. No such thing as having too many ya know.

This product comes HIGHLY recommended!!!!

I sure wouldn't go out icefishing without mine. Everything in one handy spot.

I have to tell you, I'd get this before I got a shelter.

    • You almost need to put a guy in his face and play the rest of the PK 4 on 3.
    • About time!!! Stalock on his way up...hope they play him soon.
    •   Tiger meat on a cracker is delicious.    Yes, "may". I don't have a link to his page and I haven't been to it in years so I have no idea.I'll admit that I'm more than likely wrong and just jaded from years of working in internet marketing but I'm not gullible enough to take the word of random internet peeps. Do you have a link to his page so I can verify?
    • Also check out "straw bale gardening".  
    •   My folks liked them.  The Hubbards are large and the flesh is quite thick.   Plants in late april is jumping the gun.  Liable to freeze, even with global warming.   reasonable chance of frost there until middle of may.  You want the dirt to be warm, so think of them like tomatoes or cucumbers.   seeds rot in cold soil.    frost kills plants
    • Speaking of desperate snowflakes...... check this out.   Can't wait for the hearings on Cspan.... Legogate.   Or maybe batgate....   (no I have no idea of the credibility of "heatstreet" so read at your own risk) (owned by dow jones, so part of the mainstream media at least sort of) https://heatst.com/politics/democrats-to-investigate-after-trump-official-makes-lego-batman-joke/  
    •   I doubt it.  Its hard to go back and even if you did most of the damage has already been done.  Besides it would be admitting failure, not many people like to do that and I've seen no evidence that ownership believes it did fail  Perhaps to them it didn't, with 2 sites they might be taking in more money now due to more ad spots to sell.  Although the question is longevity, do ad dollars start to suffer as users leave and content dwindles?  For awhile its not hard to pump up the stats and make the site look good to advertisers with number of visits and page views, etc.  However, if an advertiser looked at the site for themselves its easy to see all the sub forums that haven't had a new post in months or that most of the views and clicks are coming from threads with Trump in the title.   Forums as a whole are also LONG past their prime and are quickly fading out.  Facebook groups and other social media are taking over.  Why log into many different forums when you can simply log in to facebook and have everything right there along with all of your real world connections?  Advertisers are likely to be focusing more of their ad dollars on the platform as time goes by.

    • The pipeline being built is a good thing. Gutting regulation for the sake of gutting regulation is stupid - and that seems to be his tactic. Some regulations are necessary. The "illegal flow" had been declining for years; attributing the continuation of that arc to Trump isn't really sensible. 
    •  Ooh landed that one in 4 minutes.     P.S. Of course you haven't yelled at me you only go after the defenseless.  We all know how bullies work.
