Ice Creepers

15 posts in this topic

I know that there was a post somewhere but haven't been able to locate it. Anyone ever use the ice creepers from Cabelas? Can anyone give me a comparison on these and the type sold here? They look very similar. Any other models out there worthy? Any info is much appreciated.

Fish On!!

FOGS , search for "stabilicers". Thier the best I have ever used. A little more spendy, but youll never have to replace them from wear! And replacing the studs is a breeze.

Are you able to give me the advantages and disadvantages of the ice grips sold here? Same for the Stabilicers. I'm looking for unbiased objective comments. I'm trying to make the best informed decision I can and without your folks help, this would never be possible. So thanks for all your replys.

Fish On!

Fish On,
I believe we've gone over some of your issues, with respect to your Boot size of 12 1/2 and adding the fact that they are mickey mouse boots to boot smile.gif The stabilicers are a good choice for you.

Anything over size 12 in normal snowboots or size 10 in Mickey mouse snowboots, you'll definitely need to go with the stabilicer.

Rick,
My mickey boots are size 9r. Would I go with the largest pair of ice grips?

Looks like URL is out of the question for this weenend, but I would definately like to make it up the weekend after next. I'm looking to get cleats before I head up to help combat the "stand and rotate around the hole" routine from the effects of the auger and the slippery ice.
Last year, a few of us headed to Lower Trelipe near Brainerd for early ice crappies. I would be willing to bet that the three of us fell a minimum of 5 times each. I know for a fact that 2 of us initially tasted the ice just by stepping off of shore and onto lake. Its kinda humorous watching others take the spill but undoubtedly painful to have it happen to yourself. Oh, we never did manage to find the slabs either.

Thanks again Rick for your reply.

Fish On!

Fish On,
I want to be completely honest woith you here. I have not tested the stabilicers, so I cannot speak for their durability after years of use. They do hold the ice nicely from the reports I've been given.

I can tell you that the Ice Grips are durable, light yet industrial grade, and you will feel like you are walking on nice solid ground rather than ice with them on.

The X-large size will go well with your Mickey Mouse boots up to size 10. So, yes, I'm sure you'll be happy with your Ice Grips.

I don't disagree with Bigtoes statemment, but I have to respectfully disagree with Sand Burr.

The Stabilicers are indeed a nice product. They are not hands down the best out there. The Ice Grips here will compete with them very nicely. Fact is, in many situations they will outperform the Stabilicers. In fairness, the same can be said for the Stabilicers.

      Nice fish and plenty of them is what has been happening this week. Almost as many slots as keepers.  We have been jigging but pulling spinners or cranks works great too. One of the attached pics is what is showing up in the deep mud, mostly Saugers now but more Walleyes and tons more fish piling in the next few weeks. Joe Paradis from Plummer Mn out with me this morning behind the fish board and, from Thursday fishing buddy Mike Lindholm with the biggest, fattest, best looking 25 incher I have seen in a while. Having plenty of fun fishing in the wind

      Thanks for the reports. Steve, were you at Long Point today? I saw a Stratos

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!
    • JBMasterAngler
      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.
    • delcecchi
      It spit her out after the first bite..
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.
