Croxton Pond Ice Bag

18 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.

Grabs,

I have the three compartment Croxton Pond. At first, I tried velcro-ing alll of my rods everytime I transported them, but just said the heck with it. I had 6 rods in there(like Backwater said)and collapsed the handles. If your going for a longer journey etc., I would take the time to velcro them all in. Otherwise, I just velcro my favorite more expensive rods in and throw the others in, zip it up and boom, I'M GONE!!!


Pwaldow, Hmmmmmm I was on Winnie with a Croxton Pond bag?? Oh that's right, you were just driving around harrassing people!LOL!

They had such rave reviews here on the Forum that I e-mailed my wife the page containing the info on the ice-bag: lo and behold, I got one for Christmas!
So far the only downfall: One of my fishin buddies gave me a hard time about carrying a "purse" with me fishing. He's just jealous. I'm sure he'll have one by the end of the season!

Jim,

I actually saw Rick's on Saturday morning and spent the rest of the day scheming how to talk him out of it grin.gif Thought it would be easy to talk him out of it towards the end of the day when he came walking back from visiting Toad and Gullguide about 100 miles out on the ice, but he looked so pathetic all frozen solid with no gloves or jacket, just didn't have the heart. Finally broke down and decided I would have to pay for it frown.gif

They are a great storage system and will serve you well for many years.

I have 2 Croxton Pond bags so far. One for ice fishing, the other rigged for 2 piece rods handy for packing in or wadding small rivers.

I've had mine for a month and wouldn't be without it !!!!
Mine holds 5 rods, two tackle boxes, a skimmer, and there's still room for a bag of jerky.
It lets you use your bucket for hauling fish and beverages instead of gear......

The gear bags keep all your rods, tackle and other frequently used items handy, organized and protected.
I definitely would not be without mine!!
I'm sure you who have one would not want to go back to the bucket brigade again.
It's THAT valuable.

    • chicks maybe exploring what the beak is for
    •   You can also be a little creative with the leftover meat.  For example: The wife and I will whip up a spanish rice mixed in with the pork and make Enchiladas or heat the pork on the stove top, mix in some BBQ sauce and make quesadillas (the grandkids love them).   There's more to pulled pork than sandwiches.  
    • that is great!!!!   good for you guys!!!!
    • Your right rs_ld,  a full smoker is the way to go, leftovers can always be frozen and re heated..good eats.
    • 195 degrees on these butts. Like they say, if you are going to spend 9 hrs smoking 5# of meat, you just as well spend the same amount of time smoking 45#. The local grocery had these on sale so had a few friends take the offer to throw a roast on for them. Took two off early for slicing  Pulling the rest cost them each a beer though!
    • Very good stuff, kinda tasted like ribs with this recipe,  I'll keep at it til I find the right one!! Good luck moon lake!!
    • It will be interesting to see how the Warriors react in free agency.  Will they be able to keep the team together?  It seems like all these guys value winning above a paycheck so they might be willing to sign deals that will still allow the team flexibility to keep good role players around them.    
    • That's too bad.  The fish were ON FIRE up there.  I went out with my dad and uncle with our tiller walleye boat, and hardly a clue what we were doing, and we crushed them!  Ended up with 118 pounds of packaged salmon fillets.  I think I can honestly say it was the most fun fishing trip I've had in my life.  Here's my biggest of the trip, 25 pounds.    
    •   It's amazing to see a thoroughly talented team like Cleveland just get dissected like a back alley pick up team. I agree--GS will be THE team to beat for several more years if they keep their nucleus. I think we can make them sweat a little bit now, though, so that's pretty exciting for a change! 
    • dang I can see why anyone would slobber!!!!
