Knocked out a few custom rod holders out of 1/4 steel rod. I like to have the rods at standing belt level except when its windy. Being so tall requires a larger support base. Nope! As long as most have electric drill powered augers, simple carry a 1/4”+ bit & drill a receiving hole for the riser in the ice! 🤫

I have for the past few years been making up the majority of my own baits for fishing. This goes from Musky spinners to worm harnesses, to trout and bass spinners and flies for fly fishing and ice fishing. A few years ago I started powder-coating my own blades and metal lures. A lot of time this year with not certain ice so I decided to start a new venture with my baits by taking up the hobby of airbrushing. Enjoying it and I must admit that I think I am doing pretty good with it now. I think that I have about 50 new baits for this spring and summer for the grandkids and myself already 

May your tip-up spool while your flag raises with hopes of landing the big one.

Get ready for open water fishing.  Work on the boat.
