OK - this ice fishing just looked ridiculous

I was at Cabela's Saturday - and they have a new jig stick that has this MASSIVE spring bobber on it - I mean it's like 2 feet long.

Just a question, do you have to wear a paper bag over your head if you are caught with that thing? LOL.

It was about 50 bucks - yikes.

I did like the new Berkley Rod with the tiny spring bobber attachment - that looked nice.

Lots of new gear out there to spend money on. Wow - I really liked the new X2 Trap with the quilted cover. It just looks warmer!!!

I wish they wouldnt of stopped making the frabil springbobber rods, the spring was built into the tip. I personally hate the newer attached styles, way to bulky

Don't let Tom fool you. He uses a spring bobber ALL of the time. grin.gifgrin.gif That 2' extenstion sounds like something that might be right up his alley.

What do you say TH?

If it would help me catch fish I would use it only no paper bag would be needed. She would be very sensitive for sure.

Sounds a little long but who knows. confused.gif

Maybe we'll get lucky and someone will bring one to a Get-Together. We could run it "through the ropes" then. Oh, and we would definitely get a picture of us using it so that it could circulate through the forums and then we could beat off the sarcasm for 10 days or so. grin.gifgrin.gif

I was just at Gander Mtn. They do have Frabil spring bobber you can put in the tip top eye of your rod.

Frabill still makes the panfish popper with the built in spring bobber. Plus we also carry the Frabill spring bobbers in a 3 pack.

Jr, does the pannypopper still have the old style spring or the same snap in design like the 3 pack spring bobbers be cause the ones he is thinking of are the original design that uses a diffrent tip than what is in the three pack (the new design is like trying to feel an 1/8 oz. walleye jig with a golf ball for a tip on the end of your rod grin.gif but the old ones where awesome

I will check and get back to you. But you are correct, they changed them a few years ago. I forgot about that. Sorry confused.gif

They're all the newer style. Northland has a new line of combos that has a similar style spring bobber built in that may be worth a look. I haven't used them yet (Ice is a little thin for me). crazy.gif

Sorry for misleading people.

      Green has some nice gills. Glad to hear they are biting

      I’m wishing you luck my friend. It’s hard to get away and it can be very deflating when the weather doesn’t cooperate.

      Hit Green for a couple hours this afternoon, almost zero traffic and the sunnies were active. It’s nice to see this lake is back!

      still frozen in?

      Was out for a while on the Partridge River this afternoon, didn't have any minnows, managed one 13" crappie on Gulp waxes.  But, the old Strikemaster almost bottomed out-close to 30" of ice.

      I don't know what your Helix 7 requires in the manual, but a quick look would figure out if that 3amp is too small. Definitely wire your sonar to the motor battery using the correct gauge wire and fuse. If you connect it to another battery, it should be a stand-alone. Connecting to the trolling motor battery will generate interference.

      I've done cheeks quite a few times and they are always good. They take only a few seconds to carve out. I like to get the most out of the things I kill to eat, so I'm not afraid to pull them out of smaller ones. I'm glad to see that so many people picked up a new tip. That's the point of congregating on these forums. I wonder how many non-registered folks will read this and learn something new.

      I've been doing them for many years.  Like Cliff, a friend who was a guide on LOW brought some out prior to the main course-been doing it since.

      With the snow cover completely gone and lots of standing water, 60s in the forecast, with plenty of sunny days next week, and a good chance of rain mid-week; this may be my last weekend on the ice, South of Hwy 210 anyway . Fish have really been on the chew

      hey guys..i installed the helix 7. took it out the other day. it keeps  randomly shutting down, with the motor off it will stay on no problem. Heres where i think i f'd up. i used the same 3 amp fuse harness from the old sonar that came with the boat, the old hb depth only kind. its wired right to the ignition wire. i used the correct gauge wire where i needed it. im guessing its not getting enough juice? also if i wired it direct to a separate battery, how do i go about hooking up and on board charger? or would i be ok just wiring direct to the battery that runs the motor? thanks for any advice. those musky lures look so bad ass! nice work !!
