  1. Wow, didn't realize you are the Nils sharpening guy Surface Tension. I sent my blades into you this summer and got them back in a day or two. Unfortunately for both of us I didn't get out much this winter so definitely won't need the blades sharpened again for a while.
  2. You, Sir, obviously don't take enough dump with you when you go fishing!
  3. Thanks guys I'll look into both options. Leech, it is interesting we joined at the same time. I spent too much time in Sillytown, so don't stop back here nearly as often as I once did. You're killing me on number of posts!
  4. This what the back of mine looks like. I was thinking I could mount the gun holder type of grips to the metal bar in the back, if they're strong enough to hold - which is sounds like they are. I will research those previous threads though and see if I come across better ideas. Thanks Leech.
  5. I just purchased a used 2up, which is the first snowmobile I've owned and I plan to primarily use it for ice fishing. What is everyone using for auger racks? Are the Kolpin grips strong enough to hold an auger? I have a Nils auger which is very light, but I got the sled with the idea my dad could use it when he's at the cabin, and he has an ION that is about 22 pounds. I see the Kolpin Rino Grip Pros are rated to 50 pounds, but I wasn't sure if that's a best-case scenario and not banging around while driving. I got a 2011 Polaris IQ LXT if the make/model matters. Tha
  6. Good advice Bobby, and timely. I have a hot lead on a snowmobile - now if I can just get my printer to work to print out one of these sales templates! I've been looking for an older, yet decent, 2-up and holy cow do they go from listed to sold in about 20 minutes.
  7. I've never owned a snowmobile but looking to get a decent used one for the family cabin. I'm finding a lot of the ones I like over in Wisconsin. Can anyone tell me what the process is for registering a used, out of state snowmobile here in MN? Heck, for that matter I don't even know if I need a title or other documentation for buying a used one in MN. If anyone has any insight I'd appreciate it.
  8. I don't run tip-ups much, but could definitely see how they could be beneficial there. Personally, there's nothing worse than having a slow day on the ice, then finally having the bobber go down a few inches and then just hover. Now you're playing the guessing game of "should I set the hook" or shouldn't I? With the circle hook you can give them plenty of time without having to worry as much about a gut hook.
  9. I know circle hooks are becoming more popular with many fisherman, particularly during open water season when bobber fishing. I tried them this summer and have had pretty good success. But does any use them for ice fishing? Seems like they would be great for dead sticks or rattle reals so you could give them plenty of time to take the bait. There's nothing worse than coming up empty on your hook set. Just curious if they are as popular during the winter as they are in the summer.
  10. It was about 3 years ago that I went out with him, but I've seen his medical updates on Facebook. Yes, it looks like he is able to do some guiding - he's using a Benton Pontoon now - assuming it's to help with his medical stuff.
  11. Just wanted to make a plug for the History Channel show "Alone". The premise is they drop 10 people off in separate, remote locations, and the last person standing wins $500K. They are provided a tarp and get to bring 10 personal items, but any weapons need to be fairly primitive, like a long bow - not modern compound bow, crossbow or firearms. Season 6 is currently on Netflix, Seasons 1 & 2 are on Prime Video, and if you have History On Demand you can watch all the seasons I believe. In season 2 there was a competitor from Rush City, MN. For my money it's the best show on TV and way m
  12. I did a snobear trip once with WalleyeDan up by BreezyPoint. They're awesome. Wish I had $50K or so laying around.
  13. How is the ice fishing in SD? I found a few places with sleepers on Bitter and Big Stone that looked interesting, but we decided we're heading to LOTW this year.
  14. Just a friendly note to book your ice houses early this year. Spent the past week researching sleepers for my annual ice fishing trip with the buddies in January. Found quite a few places on the popular lakes (Red, LOTW, etc.) already booked up. Not sure if they always book up this early, or if this year is special because everyone has been so cooped up, but I wouldn't wait much longer if you want to book a weekend this winter.
