  1. Thought I would add that distance will vary slightly depending on cargo. I put two catch covers in my car!
  2. What does everyone like for hole sleeve length? Right to the ice, 1/2 or 1 inch off? Just a day fishing/run and gun rig so freeze in is not a huge concern.

    Ice Reports

    Found 6 inches everywhere last sunday, and I covered quite a bit of ground. Studded bike tires are great and the old trap2 on skis tows like it's barely there!

    Ice Reports

    Punched a lot of holes and found 4 inches, 2 hours north of town yesterday. One northern on a tiny jig/waxie. Pretty sure my hand auger is already done for this season.
  5. Or sacrificing a door speaker to retrieve a pair of discontinued Snap On bent tip needle nose pliers some putz kicked down the hole?
  6. All good flicks for the first bunch but you haven't gone full Cage without Vampire's Kiss. Raising Arizona would be my #1 though.
  7. Scrap is way down. $45 a ton in Mora last weekend, up from 30 the week before. Was 90-100 months ago.
  8. No tips here other than a comprehensive plan will also involve dealing with your surplus of snake food should you kill them. Anything that eats what eats or nests in my stuff is beneficial in my book. Think positive. The front patio is now your quiet place.
  9. Scavengers need to eat too.. This last weekend I saw the most conscientious deer ever. Looked both ways a couple times and crossed at the best possible moment. Better than most people.
  10. Grilling for me is a continuous season. I could never spend a lot on something that is perpetually put away and stored wet. Don't even fix them anymore. Been running Charbroil tru-infrared's with the "stainless" grates and really like their cooking action. 3 burner at home, a patio size round for camp and their cast aluminum portable unit to cover all bases. Different stores have different versions of the same grill, usually "stainless" vs porcelain coated steel grates. Wasn't trying but ended up with a smart grill last fall on a deep clearance deal. Kept it dumb so far, but like the built in propane scale. The light up burner knobs also help with not forgetting about burn off after dark.
  11. Goodwill for cheap skis. I've contemplated this same thing, but I tend to overbuild and would likely end up with a permanent grade hub house.
  12. Eating frequently generates a bite, fish seem to know when my guard is down. Sandwich bag is not just a fish slime condom, it also allows me to safely set it down in a hurry.
  13. Want to protect my new Helix 7 and was looking for some input. I left the factory protection film on last weekend and didn't have any trouble seeing, sheltered or outside.
  14. Gave the new helix a 3 day test. I like it! My only complaint is that it's a bit of a battery hog. I really like the zoom on it. At 8x I can just about check my pulse as it picks up the tiniest of rod/line movements. I mean as small a movement that can be made with a tiny pelkie jig. Seemed just a bit better than my fl20 at doing a waxie count on the jig too. Dropping the gain 1 point was the only adjustment needed. Still keeping the fl18 and 20 for backup.. I had to ask my friend with his fl18 if he was hoovering the ice shack.
