    Slipbobbering Basics

    Hi, I just wanted to share a little something I do to the slip bobber knot.I put a lighter to the ends of the knot after I trim them.I've had the string come unraveled before and get all tangled up.This helps prevent that. Just touch the ends of the string with a flame for a half a second and it keeps them from unraveling.Just be careful of your line.I've done that too

    keeping minnows alive

    I use a medium sized cooler to pick up my bait at the bait shop for my winter fishing.For me it seems to keep the water at a good temp.and keeps it from freezing up.Then when I'm done I just bring it home and put it in the basement.If I need to change the water I'll put a couple of drops of De-chlor in and drop an air pump in.But it seems like I never have any bait left.Yeah right

    Thorne Bros.rods

    I stopped by Thorne Bros.yesterday to look at some goodies for ice fishing.I've got the itch real bad.They were in there setting up some portables and putting out some other ice gear.(made the itch worse).Anyway,I was fortunate enough to pick up 4 Thorne Bros.ice rods out of a clearance bin.I was wondering what type of tape would be best for securing my reels to the rods?Thanks in advance for your response.Bring on the ice!!!!

    Dump the bucket

    I'm gonna get rid of the bucket and invest in a gear bag. I would like to check out the Revolution first hand. Who carries them?Or is it an online purchase only?Is there room for the flasher?
