We do try to carry a good stock of Arctic Armor suits and gloves. We were at the Ice Fishing Show in St. Paul this weekend and got cleaned out of some sizes. We should have a new order coming in on Wed. or Thurs.. We will be around all weekend. I can meet you about anytime if you give me a 10 minute heads up. We will be at the shop quite a bit this weekend thinking that we will have a lot of Christmas shoppers. We still don't have set hours, and yes we are in the remodeled carwash/laundromat building.

Thanks,

Walleyedan

Alright sounds good. I'll give you a shout or catch up with you at the store. what happened with Gull I saw it forze over before it snowed on sat. Hopefully it opened back up after that. We need at least one lake with good ice this year.

Thanks for the reply.

P.S. Are you also in the minnow buisness?

See ya this weekend. I believe Gull is frozen (barely) and snow covered. Not the most ideal situation, but there are areas in the area that are fishable. One of our guides was out the other night and bagged a couple of walls. I am not in the minnow business, still thinking about that can of worms. We are selling Arctic Armor (camo and red)suits and gloves, some custom ice rods and open water rods, some Walleyedan/Arctic Fisherman tip-ups with lasered W.D. logo and embroidered W.D. flag, some hats, t-shirts, sweatsirts and whatever else might sound like a good idea.

Dan,

Did you decide if you were planning on renting artic armor?

I haven't decided, what do you think should we? It wouldn't be too tough. Rent to own? I think it might be a good idea. I'll keep you posted.

Thanks,

Rent to own?!?! I like that idea.... On my horrible Brainerd area salary it is the only way I could afford it.

Very nice idea.

I am only asking as I will be up at the in-laws (on upper gull)over the holidays and am curious about seeing what all the "fuss" is about.

I really don't need a new set of bibs this year, but will be serious looking for next year. But would love to have some on the ice experience with the product.

So if I rent them all winter I can own them by the summer, right? Like a payment plan smile.gif

I do think the idea is a pretty good one, especially if easy to do on your end. Especially for all of us who like to try before you buy, or the group of people who go out on the ice only a couple times a year and cant justify the purchase for limited use.

If anything I would like to come and look at them sometime. It seems to be a great product.

Rent to own an Artic Armor suit! Sounds like you are talking about a car not a $300.00 clothing item. Hey Dan I will take a pair of the those used bibs the guy returned with the _____ stain on them. Am I the only one this seem odd to?

I do see the rent to own thing a little odd, but the idea of being able to use it for a full day or weekend to see how it performs sounds like a great idea. Also a good way to get the product on the lakes for other fisherman to see.

O.K., just buy a set. I was thinking you rent a set for such or such and if you are impressed, we will take the rental fee off of the retail price. That's odd? Alright then.

Dan, this may sound dumb but what do you wear underneath your AA? I can't seem to go light enough to not sweat even plowing on the wheeler. At this point I'm thinking maybe a t-shirt and jeans? Thanks Dan

You have to figure it out according to what your body says. My body says to wear jeans (no long johns) and then an Under Armor shirt, and a couple of other layers on top before the jacket goes on.

Dan,

I read the article about the jumping in the lake to demonstrate the AA. The writer said AA wasn't waterproof!! I assume it is!?

Thanks Rock! Nice to meet you too and thanks for the good words. Enjoy your suit and don't test out the floating capability, trust me it works. Remember, it won't prevent hypothermia and it is NOT a certified PFD. But it is the ticket and for the price, you won't find a better all purpose cold weather suit. Wahoo, it is waterproof. Thanks.

I think that when they said it was not water proof they may have meant that it does not keep water out if you are in the lake. It will keep you dry as long as you are not submerged. At least that it was I assume they meant.

      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!
    • jigginjim
      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 !!

      I think it is a matter of the material involved.   Ethanol can corrode some metal and dissolve some organic stuff like rubber or plastic that gasoline doesn't affect.   Or so some sources say.
