I have 2 of these and they work great. We fish in -20 regulerly and with the little oil lamp holes dont freeze and all works great. I also got an extra oil lamp with each as they only last about 5 hours. I have used tea candles also with success and the batteries do last all season. They make a jigger for hard sides as well im going to check out this year..spendy but save your pennies and get one worth the money..

i would never buy one of those stupid things. there a pain in the azz to set up. there too big. and they catch too many fish. ;D

I couldn't agree more.
Just kidding. I bought two this year for the cold Maine Winter on Moosehead and other places up that way.

Looking forward to seeing you up that way this winter Benson.

Was just at Old Town Trading Post.  They had 6 new in box.  $119.95 each.  They're sweet, and I'd love to have one, but that much is a bit much for me.

   Because I regularly ice fish a lake that has very high potential of an Illinois record Muskie and Walleye I figured out a way to use a rod and reel with these HEATED AUTO JIGGING tipups. You can see the video showing the set up and full operation by going here:

 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5LrIyrbr4gk

 When I was younger I landed a 40" 18 1/2 lb. Pike by hand on a tip up and it is very tense and has a high potential of losing the fish without the give of a rod and drag of a reel. Now I am looking forward to hooking a giant with this set up. So far 2 days with 2 setups both rigged with 10" plus herring and still waiting for first monster. I just hope someone else is close by to use my camera to video it so I can share the moment. Lance.

 :-\ I know this is an old posted topic. I'm new to this forum, so I'm not even sure it will be seen as an updated "reply" or post. I have just acquired some Finicky Fish Factory traps and would like some advice from anyone that has them.
What is the best way to set trip for jigging arm? small bobber? or???
What is the best way to bank the trap... all four sides? What is the best setting for back side vent for burning oil lamp? or candle in glass cup, which apparently I've been told some use? Any advice or instructions how these best work, would be helpful. O primarily fish for trout, salmon and togue (lake trout).

pack snow around the box. you don't have to vent.     I use a slip knot. little bobber will work. the 30sec delay works the best.

If that thing went off around me I would get on my sled and run it over to make it stop. That is just ridiculous.
