X-mas Goodies!

2 posts in this topic

I had a birthday in Nov. and got an H2Oc GPS. For X-mas, I would like to get a map chip fot it. I also asked for 1# propane tanks, tackle box, 5 gal. buckets, a wallet, fleece, flannel and tackle. You know, lower ticket items. I got alot of relatives. I know the spirit of the season isn't in what or how much you get, but it's nice to get new stuff!

So, what all you FMers asking for or getting yourself for X-mas?

I'll tell ya what too, it is 'starting' to become a tradition in my family to fish on Christmas Day.(This will be the 2nd year in a row) After dinner we go out to get more dinner! If this happens again next year it will be a full fledged tradition and we'll have NO CHOICE but to continue this from then on. LOL!

ice fishing wise I am hoping for some ice cleats, a hook sharpener, some new wool gloves with the rubber coating for tip-up fishing, and a chisel.

don't really have much in mind for other gifts as I am pretty blessed and already have just about everything I need for all of my pursuits...asked for a few different hunting books and some new suit jackets for work, also hoping for some Disarono and a good cigar for good measure.

If I need something I usually just buy it so I don't have to rely on someone else getting it for me for Xmas.

      I was thinking the same thoughts, I saw the pond by my house locked up, figure someone will be sitting in front of the courthouse before you know it..

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.

      Vexilar makes many "fish finders" what model do you have. Is it a flasher, a graph, WiFi type. Will help in knowing what your looking at when running your finder.

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff
