What did you kick or drop down the hole this first weekend out.

I didn't loose a thing, and considering there is a 20 x 46 inch sight fishing hole in my permanent I contribute to the God of the Lake quite often.

I lost my Frabill tip up light. I was picking up my tips at the end of the night ... saw the red flashing light coming from my hole. Thought wow that light really reflects bright off the top of the water in the hole, then realized it was coming from down at the bottom of the hole ... doh!

Only being in about 6 FOW and clear ice, it was cool seeing that hole area blinking red from under the ice. Them Frabill lights blink bright. Should've checked the next day to see if it was still going.

Sure glad those things are relatively cheap.

The wing nut on my tip up came off...and when i went to pick it up to leave, the entire bottom part of the tip up with the spool swished into the hole.

I dropped the knob for my camera tripod this weekend.

Go get a new one from Cabelas, they will back it up. Also it has the same camera as marcums, it a sony so I would just try and get a new from Cabelas. We have the same ne with the 7 inch screen great camera! If the light is not enough buy the aqua view add on light and just zip tie it too your silver weight.

My nephew somehow kicked his vex down a chopped hole (no it wasn't intentional). He was able to reach quick enough up to his armpit in the hole and grab some part of the submerged machine, and amazingly the unit still worked after a day of drying out. My guess is that it will fail at some point down the road.

    • Tysons chicken tender, Top sirloin steak, pork chop, burgers seasoned to taste - crispy crowns, tutor tots, fries - beer batter shore lunch Walleye, Crappie all better than deep fryer, oven or gas grill. Just do potato first & keep hot in oven at 250. Even Spam is better than pan fryed but if your under 40 you may not have a clue about Spam.
    • Yes spray it, or wipe it down with an oiled paper towel before you use it.  I use a little ball of aluminum foil to scrub them after the cook, but while they are still warm. They make disposable grill topper grates that are handy too when you are cooking something that is going to be really messy.
    •   Non-matching carpet and drapes have been known to cause numerous issues, too, with or without beetles, especially in Los Angeles. Keep the hamsters safe by putting in a zip-loc bag during spraying.
    • Yes, I agree with you, but there are some professionals in Queens NY who provides an eco-friendly spray, which is not harmful.
    • I smoked a pork shoulder yesterday that turned out great, but the rack it sat on took a lot of soaking and scrubbing to get clean afterwards. Got any tricks to keep the rack less crusty? Spray it with Pam before the smoke or??
    • I stopped at a small engine shop on my way up north Monday and he confirmed what RebelSS said. I got some yellow tubing and after struggling for almost 1/2 hour, got the lines reconnected and went out and whacked some weeds. Thanks for all the replies.
    • I read somewhere that the chemicals used by Queens NY pest control caused male pattern baldness and birth defects in pet hamsters. 
    • Last Friday, I saw a beetle at my home's carpet. It is very difficult for me to get rid with this beetle and I also saw some eggs were laying on the carpet, which was quite damaging. Then on a recommendation of my neighbor I had called up the Queens NY pest control services, who had used an insect spray and where the experts spray around the floorboards, furniture and on carpets and helped us by preventing the carpet beetles laying their eggs and removing all the food sources.
