    embrace the suck...

    of winter...

    ok, i've said on here that the only way i start ice fishing again is in a snobear... i don't have snobear money yet, but am now on a 8 on 6 off schedule that is telling me not to waste it... with a heavy heart i put the boat away last weekend and want to pass some available time...

    i've been out of the market for bout 10 years, and did an inventory last weekend...

    what i have:
    fl8
    fl20
    uninsulated pop up fish house
    tipups (old style polars)
    jigging rods with cheap reels
    eskimo auger i want to upgrade to electric - thinking k-drill
    lots of terminal tackle and sweedish pimples, kastmasters, and jigging raps
    have had home made, zack shack, and ice castle houses - want to stay mobile for now

    what i need is up to you...

    please give me your input - thanks!!!

    Get a stump ice house. It’s on skis and pretty portable with no putting up the house and no tearing down. Pull one with a tracked atv and then you got a more versatile rig; hunting blind, fish house,and an all season machine for way less than a snow bear.

    Heck the fish don't know what kind of equipment we have.
    Like said above. Get new line and maybe a couple new jigs also don't forget the fishing license but you have that already.

    the only thing i would try and change first in your current equipment especially since you stated you don't like the cold is getting an insulated shack... i would also try to upgrade to a sled if you want to keep mobile and warm... the big buddy heater is the way to go once you get an insulated shelter

    - - - Updated - - -

    oh yeah, striker or some other ice suite (clam eskimo frabill etc.) they will do a significantly better job than carhartts

    Insulated flip over or hub house. One good jig rod(Thorne Bros or TUCR) with good Tica Cetus reel. Other than that, just maintain your stuff.

    I have rods with original line on them from the late 80’s.
    My auger is a 1990? Or so. Some of my gear was grandpas, I’m 48 and feel as though I am likely set up for life with the gear. However when I am finally done raising my last little, I will be putting an ice castle on Sakakawea, and maybe replacing some old line.
