Tip-Up Lube


Dog-Eye

Question

Just wondering what the best lube for a friction free tip-up would be. Whats every-ones opinion? Was fishing in sub-zero temps on Thurs. night and even a brand new Arctic was real stiff.

When you go into you local bait shop ask fo BLUE LUBE. If they don't have it check out other shops or places like Gander Mountain.
Blue lube works very good on tip-ups in all kinds of weather.

It is actually spelled Blu-Lube and it is made by HT Enterprises Inc. I believe I bought my last bottle at Fleet Farm, but I have seen it at Gander and even Wal-Mart. I tried other types of lubes before and they all stiffened too much in the cold.

For the tip ups you will want to stick to the Blu Lube standard reel lube will do two things on tips ups first it will get stiff and the tip up will be sticky when turning and second when it is warm out that reel oil will drip right out of the tip up tube. I use that Blu lube in everything it is is my favorite lube. I put it in every reel that I use in the winter and summer.

Thanks for the responses guys. Ive used the blu-lube in the past but I was just curious if anyone had tried anything that they thought had worked better. I'll just stick with the same stuff then.

      don't know what roulette is? Hi. Roulette as I think is a very cool game. Roulette has been played since the nineteenth century and every self-respecting casino, including online casinos, be sure to have it in their assortment https://aolbroadband.in/ .Games for free, which the guys provide on this site, of course, include the most popular varieties of roulette: American, European and French. The online version of roulette is no different from the well-known one from land-based casinos: it features a green table with marked numbers and betting fields, as well as a wheel with numbered cells on which the ball rotates. On this site you can learn more and even play it

      In addition to to Feichao, you can also consider the DJI Mini SE. This is also an excellent piece. However, always try to read articles and thorough reviews before buying.

      Mini drones like Feichao Mini Drone Quadcopter M9 are good to take footage.

      My grandmother is a very old person, and she has had a real estate company for 20 years now, she has dedicated her whole life to it, so she does not understand much about technology and is looking to modernize her business, she is one of the few real estate companies that They don't have their own application, so I see myself in charge of finding a good software developer for real estate and that type of business. Do you know any professional or company that is dedicated to it?

      Don't forget about IP Lures just west of town about 2 miles on the south side of Co. 82.    I was out on Osakis last week for a couple hours. Picked up two walleyes, one about 13" and the other a fat 14-1/2". Also a couple northerns and a handful of perch.

      Of course, you shouldn’t even ask about this, because this is the responsibility of the executor of the order, that is, the employee who will create such an application. I think it will be stated in the contract of employment if there is one and then you don't have to ask for anything.

      Shallow. Got skunked tonight. Just got chased off by the weather. Last evening was the only time the last 4 times out I caught fish. Last even was light drizzle and calm water. Water warmed up about 3-1/2 degrees since the first time out.

      It is very important not only to identify mushrooms by their appearance but also to understand whether it is useful or not, because now there are many poisonous mushrooms, and it is extremely important that no mistakes were made in the selection of such mushrooms. That's why I here https://www.mushrooms.online/mushroom-poisoning/ read a lot of interesting information about poisonous mushrooms and was able to understand more about it. I hope that I was able to help you and was really helpful to learn.
