a slick ice scoop

Recommended Posts

have a friend who uses a 8 inch strainer for an ice scoop. it has a 8 inch round wire mesh with a 6 inch handle. cleans the hole out one one sweep.course we were in the shelter so worries of freezing up, but this worked so slick. any one have other ideas for scoops?

That looks like a good ice scoop! (seriously)

Take no offence but it looks like someone dropped a hockey stick in a urinal.

I've kept one in the bucket for a lot of years . They work great if you can hang them up so they don't freeze . Also the round edge is easy on the fishing line and more durable than most plastic scoops.

This kinda reminds me of crocadile dundee in new york when he was almost mugged, "thats not a knife, this is a knife!" lolol
Get the big dipper scoop, you'll never need another.. Should have him throw in a bag of the lost river fish breading too, awesome products from minnestas north country! Paul

When I started ice fishing seriously, I figured its just an ice scoop, any one will work, and picked up one of those crappy orange ones for a couple bucks. Well, I hate that thing, get something decent!

    • Really wanted to do these outside but the oven will have to do. Bacon,  onion shroom cheese burger stuffed peppers. A dash of of garlic,  gourmet burger seasoning a another dash of Montreal seasoning and cheese .  These were really good!!  
    • looks great what kind of a heater are you putting in it
    • My wife's on it!  That is-making soup😀
    • Got mine today in my work truck 😀 
    • Not much got done over the weekend as i was sick and had no energy to work.  I did manage to get the top bunk built.
    • Mmm mm Thanks!!!!!!!!
    • your package went in the mail today!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    • Figured I'd loop back on this with an update.  I ended up getting the Weber Spirit 3 burner.  Picked it up at Ace Hardware.  Its the same price everywhere ($449) but Ace will assemble it, deliver it, and haul away the old one for no charge.  Bought it Saturday morning had it sitting on the back patio by 3pm that same afternoon.   I ended up looking at a lot of grills including many brands of gas grills, pellet grills, and some charcoal grills.  There were some other gas grills that I liked, they looked to be made solidly from good materials and they came at a decent price.  However, they all lacked a decent warranty.  The webers use less stainless steel than some of the others and I'm not 100% sure what the china production will do to the quality and longevity of a Weber but they do come with the best warranty that I saw.  I believe grates and flavorizer bars have a 5 year warranty and everything else has a 10 year warranty.  Customer service and part availability was also a big selling point.  Weber parts look to be easily available and if you do end up having to replace the grate, flavorizer bars, and burners it will only set you back $150 which should get you many more years out of the grill.    I let my almost 3 year old son pick the color since he came with to help pick it out.  I couldn't argue with his choice of red.  It is clearly the fastest looking grill, now I just need to add a racing stripe. 
    • Saturday morning I was able to put my tag on a nice bird. If I did no get to put some scouting time in I would of moved too fast. I knew these bird was going to show up but he never made a peep on roost or the ground. I was able to call in the hens with him following. The hens yelped twice on the ground and that was it. Had other birds gobbling but I knew this guy was around. It was him with 3 Jakes and 3 hens that pretty much stayed by themselves and nothing to do with the larger group of birds. I was able to see him the Saturday before opener and trail cameras showing he was coming through around 720 each morning. I shot him at 7:15 plan worked out great. 20 Gauge is becoming my favorite gun for turkeys. He was just a couple oz’s shy of 24lbs. double beard 11inch, spurs 1inch. Some big birds dropping. My dads was 25lbs and Protourbait above 24. Might head back to NE this weekend see how the week goes. I have WI left for a couple tags.
    • I personally don't use hens often.  When I do she's in a breeding position near a strutting tom.  I usually go jakes of various postures or no decoys.  I like to keep them guessing where that hen is at.  I've had too many mature Tom's hang up, strut and gobble until the real hens show up to escort him away when using just hens.
