gander hole covers

Recommended Posts

anyone use these things..they are made of black foam with a little hole in the middle for a tip up or deadstick. i want to put them over some holes a few yards away from our sunset spot in an area i will be fishing later at nite, i wanna see if they will keep them from freezin over...dont want to drill holes after dark on this particular spot for fear of spooking em. just curious if anyone has used these things and if they work all right....i will get back after the weekend and tell you all if they are worth a (Contact Us Please) or not blush.gif not sure how well they will work with this weekends weather. thanks

I don't know if they are the same, but I just used some of the foam hole covers that have a slit in them for tipups last night on Mille Lacs. 8 below zero overnight, and only 1/4" of ice on the hole in the morning. Very happy with that - was just too lazy to take them out last night, and thought for sure they would be locked in tight...

Yes, I used the same GM type when it was very cold and windy. They don't keep all the ice and snow out, but they do help. Very much worth it.

    • Fun, looks like you had a great day. 🙂  Getting the itch but we have a few more weeks to wait here in Minnesota! 😔  Welcome to the forums.
    • Is it generally a good idea to use two treble hooks on a tip up setup?
    • Had some great luck getting into some fat Late fall trout. Hope you enjoy.   Late Fall Trout
    • vtx,   Thanks for the suggestion.
    • Minnesota Archery again. D season in Wisconsin. Hopefully taking my dad out if possible, he's 95 and not in great shape right now. Also have a women's mentored hunt later in May.  Not certain yet, but hoping to put a Nebraska hunt together.  Seeing WAY more than expected this fall what with the cold wet spring we had.
    • We were up fishing from last Thursday afternoon through Saturday evening. Fishing was great, lots of nice walleyes with a couple of fat 28" fish as the biggest and plenty of saugers. Fish bit all day with our best bite coming each day from about 2-315. Fish were somewhat sluggish from 11-1230 and had to be coaxed into biting or didn't bite at all but after 1230 most everything we marked bit. We were set up in 23-24', color didn't seem to matter although we tend to use gold more than most other colors on our spoons and we basically had every color tied on our set lines and they bit them all. There was about 3-4" of snow on the lake Thursday when we got there but it was a packed 1-2" by the time we left Saturday night. Some areas of rough ice but other areas are nice and smooth, generally about 14-16" of ice where we fished. Can't wait to get back up, good luck if you are going out!
