Automatic Jigging Device
« on: Feb 12, 2004, 09:37 PM »
I am looking for some type of an automatic battery or wind powered jigging device that I can attach to a tip up or a rod to use for short time periods as when tending a flag or playing cribbage. Is there such a thing available or does anyone have plans to make such a thing. ???
Good thing about prisons- they reduce the potential number of fisherman on the ice!

Hey jigstick, I can't play cribbage at home cause my wife won't let my looser buddies in the house and she won't let my dogs eat pickled herring and drink beer there either.  ;D

naw, she's the one that inspires me to post these thought provoking missives. Now if I can only get her to leave my ice fishing gear alone.

Hey jigstick - believe it or not that contraption you're talking about already exists.  It's an enclosed unit with a light bulb to keep the hole open and an offset cam arm that raises and drops the line to jig.  It's got a standard tip-up style trip that signals a bite.  If I'm not mistaken it's called a Finicky's Fish Factory or something like that.  A buddy of mine won one at an ice tourney.  The batteries last about 4 hours tops and the thing weighs about 10#.  It saw the ice twice and has been sitting in his garage since.

If only his promotional people had been up to snuff he would undoubtedly be a rich man now. Maybe Ron Popeil would have been the way to go.

I see those things at the shows here in St. Paul. There are a few guys who swear by them. I think they are on the company payroll though.

They have a jigging box which is battery operated.For the price of 1 of those you can get a bunch of rattle reels.
Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an  well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, A fishing pole in one hand, beer in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming \"WOO HOO, what a ride!

check out www.fishhousesupply.co m   they have them with the rattle reels. I have a couple of them and the jiggers work with 4 D batteries and the batteries will last all season. They work great! :)
