push button??

Question

merganser

Does any one know where I can get the push button thing-a-ma-jiggies that are inside of conduit for making poles shorter. For example, they are inside of the old conduit tent poles and they are inside of present day portable ice shacks to extend/shorten support poles. What are they called and where can I buy these. One pole has holes drilled in it and the other has the little silver push button. The push button is what I am looking for. Thank you!

Do a search for Springmasters Button Clips.

Ah, button clips or tube clips or tent pole clips or snap buttons. Thanks!!! Now if I could only find a place (in the US) that sells them individually. If any one knows of such a place please let me know. Thanks again... I couldn't figure out what they were called, or now, where to buy them.

Otter will sell you some. Another option is Jay Soderbloom. He used to have some on hand. http://www.soderbloom.com

Search Valco snap buttons. They're in Ohio. I don't know if you can get them direct but they may have a local outlet. All sizes and shapes so you really need to know what will work for you.

      That’s pretty awesome! I’ve been keeping an eye out around the house but haven’t seen enough activity to coax me out in the temps we’ve been having.  We mainly have fox around the house, and only one good yote.  We had a young wolf do a lap around the house in the spring but haven’t seen him around since.  I know I couldn’t shoot him but I’d sit out just to see him if he started showing up again. Mainly turkey tracks as of late.

      Probably two of the safest bets in the area. I haven’t fished Crooked off Bunker for several years but it always seemed to have plenty of fish. Have you ever been on the Moore lakes near 65 and 694?  Sometimes they get a lot of attention, and I’d have to think for good reason.   Twin Lakes in Robbinsdale used to be a favorite stop for us when we were young.  Did good on pannies and surprisingly well on pike. If you don’t mind traveling further west, Medicine is a pretty good lake.  Lots of memories fishing the crappie hole in front of the beach on the southwest side.

      Gulp spray seems to help also.

      I prefer ciscoes too.  I just don’t always have access to them.  They leave a better scent trail.  That’s part of the reason for a little kick of salt on the frozen suckers.  Anise could help too.

      Not that I know of. First time I used one and constantly had to clear the shavings and drill kept cutting out. Drill is a 1200# fuel.

      I always did best with frozen Cisco's suspended on a quick strike rig.

      I tried a few times during that 30 below weather. Saw nothing but thousands of wolf tracks. That night while we sat on the hunting shack deck having a cigar a pack of coyotes we're yipping out by our trucks 400 yds away. They were probably tipped off by our generator though and couldn't get them to come in. I did see 2 moose 30yds in front of me going into one calling spot. That was cool.

      Coon lake up 65 and off 22. Also Lake George. Both pretty good panfish populations to keep busy.

      Thanks for the replies guys. Usually target panfish and eyes so actually going for pike is kinda a whole new world to me. lol

      Lots of little sunnies there is a spring in there in the deepest spot be care full. There are better lakes in my opinion.
