I recently sent this e-mail to Menards about a problem I am having with the ice house they carry that I bought.

I recently purchased a "Strike Zone" two man flip over style ice

fishing shelter from your Superior store. I actually picked it up from the West

Duluth store because the only model left in Superior was the floor

model and when I looked at it the zipper had come apart. For this reason I wanted

a model that was new in the box. When I got it home it took me about 2

hours of putting it together. During this time I find that the holes in the

frame tubes that hold up the shelter do not line up correctly with the snap

locks to keep them in place. This is a minor grievance compared to the fact

that on my first trip out ice fishing the zipper came apart when I tried to

close the door flap. I managed to get it working again by using the second

zipper tab only to have it fail again the next time I tried to unzip the

doopr.

Once I got the unit home and into a warm garage I got it working again

after quite a bit of effort. Then on my next trip out it failed again.

I would return the unit except I do not feel like disassembling it

only to return it so it can be replaced by another defective unit that

obviously have defective zippers in them from the get go. I intend to take the

unit to a canvas shop and have a good zipper put into it. I would love to hear

that you will pay me for this work, but I somehow doubt it.

I am not sure what other solution you can come up with and I anxiously

await your response before I begin to spread the word about your faulty

products on every fishing forum I can find.

Today I got this reply.

Wade,

I am sorry for the inconvenience this has caused you. Please give me the address you would like a new cover sent to and I will make sure it gets rushed. We do need and appreciate your business.

Sincerely,

Brian Humblet

Since we're on the subject of local businesses I have to give recognition to Russ at Marine General for outstanding service. I have purchased equipment from Russ for over 30 years and I can't say enough for his personal care of his customers. If I ever have a problem with something I bought at Marine General he always goes out of his way to remedy the problem. He is a class person, and I would recommend him to anyone.

      Thanks. So it hasn't changed much then. Still might go give it a whirl!

      If you haven't read it yet, a couple of slobs are about to ruin it for the rest of us. Pick up your garbage and respect private property. The land owners who allow access to the lower sucker river are about to shut it down because they are so fed up with it. http://minnesotasteelheader.blogspot.com

      With the wind being fairly strong today I opted to hit the back waters of Little Rock. Have done goid there in yrs past.... so I figured it would be worth a shot. Finding crappies was pretty easy, they were holding tight to the brush and downed trees. Finding crappies over 8inches was tough...lol.  I don't think I broke 9inches. But did manage one big carp. Guessing right around 30in, pulled me and the yak all over the lake before I got it boat side

      Hit the one down by Watkins a couple times this winter. There were a lot of people that fished it this last winter. Got gills and crappies of all different sizes. If your looking for keeper size fish, other area lakes will provide better numbers. Haven't been on the other one of  in a few yrs. There were good numbers of 6-7in sunfish if I remember right.

      Looking to get a different depth finder for my boat, one with GPS and side imaging. I have $650 to spend, and have found a new Helix 7 SI and a used 998c SI HD with about 800 hours on it.  They both are $600.  Which one would you get and why?   Thanks!
