Slush Inhaler!

15 posts in this topic

Do any of you guys use this thing?

I just bough one yesterday. I got one a couple of years ago for x-mas but it was stolen out of my house before I could use it.

That figures.

I thought with all of the ice and having almost two buckets per hole it would be worth it.

Can't help you with the slush inhaler.

But I've got a beer inhaler that works pretty good grin.gif\:\/

I'll stop by your house and show you sometime...

In the words of the late Tony the Tiger, THEY'RE GRRRRRRRRREAT! A friend of mine has one and it really is easy to use and does a good job. Dip it in, pull it out and on to the next hole. I told another frind of mine we should just make one out of thin aluminum stove pipe. It sounded like an easy enough plan whilest we sat at the bar and solved worldy issues. Still haven't made one.

The inhaler works great if you have alot of holes to clean. We have one in our 10 holer and it speeds the set-up. Ive been told that if you rivet some thin rubber around the edge of the flappers you can increase the efficency but I havent tried it yet.

Yes they do work great. They also make a product called the catch cover slush bucket that goes on the floor over your holes, so when you are drilling inside your house it collects the ice and keeps your floor dry. They run around $50. This is the first year I have used one and the two products working together saves you a lot of time.

Thats good to hear cuz I JUST BOUGHT ONE YESTERDAY AS WELL. However the guy at Fleet Farm said they got many many complaints cuz they always seem to break. But hopefully these posts are more reliable cuz it was almost $50..... Hope he was wrong...

I have one too. I have used it for about 4 years and no problems. Works best in the perm house because its kind of big to lug with in the portable.

I got one for the perm house. It works great. i did a couple modifications. First I added a longer strip of wood across the top of the handle to prevent it from falling down the hole which I thought the factory should of done. But then that would take away some of their repeat customers. And I duct taped around the bigger holes next to the rods and also around the rim inside. I get alot more of the ice that floats around the hole after its mostly slushed out. Again, they work great inside the bigger houses. I just slush out into a 5 gallon pail and dump that outside when im done.

I need to get one of those for my permanent but I'd like to try one first. I'm sure I'll run into one one day.

You know he didnt really say where they broke but he kind of eluded to the moving part. But I think he just wanted to make excuses of why they didnt have any in. It was actually at scheels, I earlier stated it was Fleet Farm

      7/19 Day 5   Day 5 was spent celebrating my Isaacs 11th birthday!  Lots of cake and catering to him.  The exciting typical swimmimg and paddling ruled the day.  Grandma and grandpa DeZurik came up to celebrate his birthday as well.  Always nice to get both sets of grandparents together at the same time.   Fishing continued slow even more.  Still a successful night though. The birthday boy conceded his seat in the boat so grandma and grandpa cpuld join me for the evening fish trip.  My folks in all truth haven't been fishing for 2 years or more.  It was just nice to get them in the boat.   I struggled as the acting to put them on a consistent bite.  Mom as able to scratch out the biggest walleye at 17".  Dad brought home the honors of most fish caught landing a 14" and 15" walleye, 8.5" bluegill, and 2 perch as big aa his leech! I mustered up 1 small pumpkinseed.

      no doubt aboit the hooks, they are lottle stickers.

      I like drifting with them and snap jigging them with a controlled fall...Almost every time you'll feel that tick just as it's hitting bottom... Last time I was on mille lacs that's all I could get them to go on. As far as colors I'd just match the forage Tullies in the lake use blue,purples,silvers....Perch use perch colors.. I think the jiggin rap is my new favorite way to fish, but it gets scary with them little hooks when you got a big eye on lol.

      Fished Big Sandy from 8-2 today and got 10 eyes (no keepers) keeper crappie and perch.... Marked tons of fish, but it was tough to get them to go, Lindy rig with a half crawler was the best by far. I tried leeches,jigging rap, jig n plastic. Points and reefs were the spots, later in the day a lot of fish were off the edges of the reefs... Just one day this year I'd like a happy medium weather wise, either I'm in 4ft rollers or 90 degrees with zero wind haha.

      According to Al Linder you can do it all with them...on his video that I watched a while back he was in deeper water throwing into 15 feet and working it back to the boat.  I have not tried it yet but will have to sometime this year.  Sand or gravel bottom would be the best.

      Just started playing with these this week as a friend has been have goos luck all summer with them on the Cass lake chain. I have not any success yet but not real sure on the best way to use them with my set this week.  My friend searches pods of fish out with electronics then spot locks and vertical jigs. I have no electronics or spot lock so I have been control drifting and jigging.   My questions...   Is there a depth they work better in, shallow vs. deeper?   Better vertically jigged vs trolled vs casted and jigged?   prime colors? of course my be lake dependent.   typically, aggressive jigging vs subtle jigging?   Thanks for tips
    • Perchy
      Yes, insured. I will ask the adjuster, thanks.
    • Captain Acorn
      Thanks cliff and lb I have actually had better luck with the puppet minnows from northland but I have mainly jigged them vertically definently is a fun way to fish 
    • LBerquist
      I've been trolling at about .5mph while using a jigging rap. This way one guy can still drag a lindy. I keep the front hook intact but my boat has contributed about half a dozen to the lake so far this summer. Im still working on getting the hang of it. If I know I'm in a rough area I will attempt to keep the jig from hitting bottom which still seems to be effective. I did pick up a couple off brands that don't have a front hook that I want to try. This is just what I have been toying around with, I'm definitely not an expert at it.
