Definitely ready for ice here.....or at least some snow to eliminate all these fires burning throughout the state & clear up this nasty air we've been breathing for 2+ months now !!

I bought the deeper pro last year and it worked well when I finally figured it out. Then I had my phone on my lap while I was getting my chargers out for them and one of my poles started bobbing and my phone ended up in the hole.  ;D ;D ;D ;D

Been there.  I have a phone at the bottom of Fresno and at the bottom of a small private pond.  They no longer come onto the ice with me.

Everyone getting ramped up, love it!! I lost a camera down the hole once but was able to snag the floating lanyard after about 20 minutes of jigging;)

Caught a 38" lake trout on 3# test while showing  my friend how the deeper worked.  Very good experience!
flash in the pan!

Finally a weather change around here. Some relief from the heat and smoke. Temps are dropping here in Great Falls.

It's All Nice On Ice Alright

The only issues I found with my deeper pro is when I was around someone with a more powerful sonar it wouldn't work as well as if I was by myself. When I was in a place where I could only have two poles I kept them close enough and drilled a 3rd hole just for my deeper pro and put it in the middle of both and it picked up both holes and my jigs. My phone and charger are sitting at the bottom of Georgetown lake if anyone catches them. LOL.
