Crappiekeith, question for you...

I seen in one of your earlier pics here, that you have the Anchor Mate on your boat. I also see that you have the crank mounted on that back plate of your boat (Not sure what it's called). How does that work for winding the rope up evenly? Do you have to guide the rope on? And are you happy with the Anchor Mate?

It's actually on my dad's boat & yes it works great.

Thanks for the quick response. Can I ask one more thing? I have seen them mounted on the inside of the boat, and then a line leveler (A pulley of sorts) about 12 inches in front of the reel and then two line guides before it goes to the anchor. Is there a line leveler on your dad's even with the reel mounted up on top of the back of the boat?

I am asking these questions, because I don't want to spend the money and then not have it work. And I would prefer to have the reel mounted on the back like on your Dad's boat, it would be out of the way. I appreciate you taking the time to answer the questions....

He has small pulleys mounted on ever seat to draw the line back.

As the line builds it drops on the spool.Plus with a smaller dia.line there's not much build up.

      So, what was YOUR ice show score of the day!? I'm heading down on Sunday to see what scraps I can dig up. Absolutely more excited than I should be considering the only ice I've seen so far is the kind that fits in a glass..

      Seeing it's only your second year find buddy to go with as rock said. I even bring a second set of dry clothes and footwear. I am to big mess with thin ice I need 6 inches as rick said early varies so much so some where there is half as much ice.    Safety gear check include ice cleats as i have seen enough broken arms happen. Check your gear test the vexilar hook it up and turn it on to see if it runs or just hook up the charger. I use the drill plate so I charge all my batteries and with blade protecter on I make sure it works. My little sled is ready to haul my gear.    I go light during early ice so fill so fill up my plactics container and restock my jig boxes. Make sure my set ups have new line and pick my favorite set ups to take with. I can add some photos later
