I don't have any real good pics and this floor is for an older Eskimo house I had not the 949I that I use now. I think you'll figure out what I did. I made this same set up for my current house.

 

I built a socket into the floor. I then built a frame out of round bar. It goes up as you can see in the pic then hangs a 90 and hangs over the hole. I have a couple reels on aluminum brackets I formed to slide over the round bar.

Ditto this for the hub house.  I like that I can hear if a pike grabs my decoy if I’m outside too.

My setup is similar to MJ's and MrKlean's, I have a wood floor with a small hole in it on each side of the spear hole.  I use electrical conduit to make a frame over the hole and hang rattle reels  from it.

Who knows or has parts list for a hillbilly decoy spinner? Battery operated spinner for decoys or spoons or golf balls, etc....

Any response would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

      Thanks all. FYI I'm located on Frazer Bay on Vermilion. Give a shout out if/when you may be on the water up there. I may give the Pike River Flowage a try tomorrow or Saturday. I'll provide a report if I go. Thanks again.

      @Rick G, it's about the questionable link they left. Either something hard is going to popup. Or someone may end up with a virus. Or both!

      MrPike, you using the 6" or 8" k-drill?

      I sure would like to see your video Curt, but can't seem to get past the error code myself. Hope it was a good one, and always look forward to seeing them..

      Thanks Rick G that will be this springs project one thin spray on the top and bottom should be just right. Seems they all have this issue you’d think they’d do somthing about it.

      I've got a 9 ah battery ordered in addition to my 5 ah batteries.   I'm thinking I should be in better shape.  But with the ice getting pretty thick I'll be switching to my gas auger soon.

      Thanks for the replies I will be getting one today. Poseidon one thing to check is your blade sharpness Last year I thought my drill was getting weak I put new blades on and away I went.  With this open winter they tend to dull faster just an idea. I'm getting about 15 -18 holes per battery in 20 inches of ice also with same set up.

      Teach them up in the way they should go. And they will never part from it! Great video!   Mom probably loved the day off too!
