Big Dipper vrs Little dipper ??

Recommended Posts


Is there two such animals? I picked one up at cabelas over lunch...it says little dipper on it, I cant imagine one bigger than this? and if so...whats it used for? 15" holes or what!!

I have the big dipper and fish out of 10" holes. It's great for cleaning the holes out or chipping ice if it forms. It can be angled in a 10" hole to get past those slab crappies when there coming up the hole in url, and used like a net till you get your hands on them. I have saved many fish that way that would have gone back down the hole when becoming unhooked.

Ice Fishing will never be the same now that you picked up a Little Dipper! grin.gif

Yes, there is a Big Dipper and its BIGGER! The handle is longer and the scoop a little bit wider. Its great if you don't like to bend over to scoop slush out of your hole.

I use the Little Dipper. It packs nicely into my Revolution bag and also is the perfect size for my Otter den. I'm sure I'll be picking up a Big Dipper to scoop the holes in my permanent house this winter.

I've decided to offer some of the Original Big Dippers here. They sell for almost $20.

I'll run an IceLeaders special and let you have them for $14.95

They don't make them with the original Christian Bros Hockey sticks anymore.

We have a limited supply. 1st come 1st serve. when they are gone we will shut it down.

You can see them at:

    • Been hearing 2 pileated woodpeckers in the trees for a few days. Was hoping there was a chick around. It just flew in and I got a quick shot. Male chick. First time I have captured one.
    • What do you know 2 games in a row for Sano. Cron too, he's been the steadiest with the bat lately IMO. Thought I seen something about them getting a pitcher that the Angels let go. I'd love to see them pick up another lefty for the bullpen as well.
    • A lot of it depends on the bandwidth that you are paying for. They will limit your pipe. Best bet is to hook up a computer directly to you router and see what you get on your speed test. The mesh systems are  awesome for both range and through put, but any wireless router is only going to deliver on the bandwidth that your isp provides. If you find that your hard wire computer is a lot faster, the first step is to update the firmware on your wireless router and go from there. 
    • I finally put out the blackbird proof suet feeder. The juvenile redwing blackbirds have recently moved in and have been gorging on the nutty butter. Never had any grackles so far, hence the reason I’ve waited until now to swap feeders. They haven’t been hitting the sunflower chips much, so I’ll hold off on swapping those feeders for now.
