Yeah, if your in the market for a hand held gps I'd have to agree. I just bought a H2O this past summer myself. It's big enough to moung in the boat yet portable enough to take anywhere. And with the LakeMaster chip you're good to go!

I would be very happy if my significant other gave me a home made book with 5 coupons in it. each book was good for an out of town three day weekend for fishing or whatever i wanted to go.

Those all sound great, but my lady is already trained in the three day weekend and I got an Epedition color for my B day this fall, and I bought the lakemaster chip, works great but batteries go fast when its cold out. Do you use rechargable? I tried them on Tuesday and it crapped out really fast. I have a vexilar and all the rods and tackle I will need for the next couple of years or at least thats what I tell her wink.gif any good rechargible lanterns or just one that anyone knows of that the mantels don't bust so easy?

Thanks Big Stevie! Where in the Metro do you fish? Big Jeff I haven't found a rechargable lantern that like the cold - I've got a Coleman the kind that screws onto a 1LB tank...

      You can get around anywhere on Ottertail. I have been out there the past couple weekends and we currently have 20"+ of ice. It is a little rough and some deeper snow drifts but you shouldn't have a problem. A lot of houses and traffic on the lake.

      Ditto this. ^^^^.  Plus they eventually crack and break.

      Mike, the clam bar is going to be your best bet. But I run the troo shine strip lights in my one man flip. There great super bright and have sticky tape on them to connect to a pole. The clam light bar is about same in price maybe a bit more but extremely bright and can be mounted in your poles. I also have the clam sled lights on mine to not as bright but helps light up the ice in front for fishing or the sled or both. Hope that helps

      I am looking for a LED Rope lights to hang in my clam ice house for fishing at night.  I know you can purchase a light bar from clam, but I am thinking there must be a cheaper way.  I am looking for suggestions.  Please provide the brand.  Thanks, Mike

      The white hockey tape, then black electric tape over.  The hockey tape by itself gets too wet for me. The black electric tape sheds water better than the hockey tape.  After a few yrs of use the black will leave a gunky residue on the rod if used by itself Have also tried the reel bands, not a big fan of them when fighting a big fish.
    • AlwaysFishing23
      Masking tape on rod handle then electrical tape reel to rod. Works good!

      Hockey tape for me.  Bought a roll 10 years ago and probably have another 10 years left in it, unless I go on a shopping spree for rods/reels!

      Finally got out there Saturday after wanting to for almost 10 years! After reading all the pointers on here and looking at maps we gave it a try. Ended up catching around 15 between the 2 of us in about 4 hrs biggest being about 6lbs. Had a blast and will definitely do it again!  Oh and you're not kidding about a lite bite I think only one actually pulled the bobber  under!

      I was on Turtle Lake.  I've always found the clarity good there although I also haven't seen a boatload of pike.  Centerville was awful a couple of weeks ago as was Peltier although they both can change in a few weeks.  Sorry I didn't reply sooner but I was up north seeing almost 50 fish in two days on a small lake west of Bemidji.  Nice clear water there and pike from 10 to 38 inches long.

      Just fished Potato for the first time this winter. Found walleyes in 15 feet of water off the mid lake humps during the day/late afternoon. Had the camera down and saw plenty of eyes but couldn't get them to bite. Was wondering if this lake is more of a night bite.
