slush removal

17 posts in this topic

Where can I get a slush remover? They are a tall cylinder that you put down the hole and theres a handle that closes a lid on the bottom and you pull it up and clean out most of the ice from the hole in one try. I can't find them any where. I seem to waste 20 minutes cleaning my holes out in my perm since I slowly raise the auger to not spill ice and water all over my floor it is all still in the hole. this takes several scoops with a regular scoop and 5 gal. bucket

There's a thing called the "slush inhaler" that I think is what you're looking for. Do a Google search and you should find it.

You are looking for a sluch inhaler. You may also want a slush bucket. I have both and it nmakes perm shack cleanup a breeze.

cbellas has them for sure, as well as any outdoor sporting good store including FF. they shouldnt be to hard to find, just all the ice fishing stuff might not be out yet.

Wait for the Ice fishing show at the river center. If you plan to go, there is a man there that sells home made inhalers for about half the price that they ask for online and in stores and they work just as well. I should have thought about that before but it took Neighbor guys post to clear the cob webs away. I paid 20 buck for one last year.

I have the 10 inch slush inhaler.It fits in my 9 inch auger hole.I would recomend putting a couple bolts and nuts on the top to prevent it from falling down the hole if it slips out of your hand.I had to retreive mine from 16 foot of water.

    • Eaves would have been nice, better to the ducks than someone else. They beat us last go around but we were way better and Gibson won the game by himself.
    • Wow...Ducks get Eaves from Dallas for a conditional 2nd round pick...pretty cheap rental IMO..where were the Wild on this deal...oh ya we don't have a 2nd round pick 
    • Update:     Put some fresh gas in, sprayed the carb valve with some cleaner and cleaned the filter.  Also adjusted the idle speed up a bit. Runs great again!   Thanks for the advice and help everyone! 
    •   Nope...I think that is an original Bear55 Quote but Yogi Berra would be jealous if he were still alive.   Agree on the Blackhawks...when the season ends they will probably be the favorite to win the cup IMO so it will take an upset by any team to knock them off...would love for the Wild to be the ones to do so....it is getting very interesting as the trade deadline and playoffs time approach!
    • Out here (Virginia) our lakes are dirty and warm, and from what I understand, saugeyes thrive in those conditions. Our walleyes are all stocked since very few of our lakes have suitable spawning habitat and there is little to no natural reproduction.   Really looking forward to catching a saugeye just so I can cross it off my list!

    • Funny, that is the same face I get when I think of people voting for a reality tv star in as president. Worse yet he is some kind of billionaire, like the general public should ever trust one of those guys in public office.
    • More like Yogi the Bear but if I stole his quote my apologies.  Have to get that Chicago gorilla off our back, don't care if they win 4 of the next 5 cups, we just need one and I will be a happy camper.

      I'm not liking that they found some decent youth to play with Towes, we need to pounce before they fill in their gaps with depth and scoring again.
    • I am up to 27 in ND so far.  Waiting for more snow to melt.  Cold weather and deep snow makes the deer really group up out here and makes for easy shed hunting, but is really tough on the deer.  The 4th pic is one from some round bales that the deer were destroying earlier this year.   The biggest I find year to year is generally around that mid 60" range.  And I found that one (first pic) in early Janruary.  So hopes of finding a bigger one this year is low haha.
    • The only Merc I saw in Belize was on a parted out boat 75ft from water. Otherwise it was 70% Yammy's, 15% Honda's, 10% Suzzy's and a 5% hodgepodge of Evinrudes, Tohatsu, ect.......
