keeping hole open

Question

ellevold

Is there anything you can buy that will keep your holes open? For example: You are going to leave your fish house and wont be back for a few days. You return to fish let the air out of some type of balloon or something. No redrilling. Sombody told me they seen a balloon where there is a place for your minnows underneath this balloon so there ready for the next time you fish. Anybody here of this before? If so let me know where. That would be the cats meow if you wouldnt have to redrill everytime .

I think there are several types and one brand is Hole Savers, but I can't remember who makes them. You may want to try a Google search.

I can't remember the name of them, but they sell them every year at the ice fishing show... pretty spendy though. I looked into them but I think a half dozen would've set me back more than a couple hundred bucks... bought an electric Strikemaster at seasons end for that amount... no more fumes in the house.

Good Luck!

do a google search for

holee molee

they're slick,

but you do need to leave them hooked up to a 12v battery

A vex or motorcycle battery is good enough when you're in the house fishing. If you want to leave it running while you're gone, I think I'd go with a lawn tractor battery or even a deep cell like we use for trolling motors.

Vados Bait carried them. I don't know if they did this year. About $10 a piece.

      Supposedly this fish was snagged.  I am reading online at various sources that it may be prohibited from state record certification.

      I fished with a guide on the Detroit River two weeks ago who had the new Panoptix unit ($4000 to get setup).  Incredible what you could see as it is a live image.  Have to say it can frustrate the hell out of you sometime,  you see the fish just looking at your bait and then swimming away.  Very cool tech!  You could actually see the fins on the fish in the image and truly judge the size somewhat.

      7-10 days the lake will be ice free. Which will be almost right on average ice out (April 30). Pike bay is open up to Duffy island working up the bay. Paddled from the Pike river up the bay to the ice line tonight.

      Fake chirp as marketing gimmick.    They need something to convince folks to buy their unit and dump their unit from two years ago.    I am reserving judgement on the new higher frequency units.  "mega" and equiv.   Side scan actually seems like it could be useful.  Lots of stuff is changing these days in electronics.       I think what would be cool is an underwater drone with several transducers that communicates back to the boat wirelessly with sonar and video.....    Fresh water doesn't block radio waves too much so probably could use radio communication at least for a limited distance.       Some sort of modulated acoustic waves would work too.       Can't you just see, sitting in the boat, driving the mini-sub around looking  for fish, with sonar to help?   I bet the open water musky guys would pay big bucks for one....😂
