That's a pretty good deal!! If I didn't have a couple shelters already I'd probably get that one. Can't beat that deal!

just bought a mora auger with two piece offset handle for $24.95 there is still one left if any one is interested it is on ebay... I am going to put the off set handle on a lazer auger  a 6 inch  when I get the time to get another one but that is the best find and deal I could get thus far... or I can get a 7 inch laser conversion kit for a 7 inch mora or one or the other for the mora its self...

13 Fishing Teardrop (left hand) for $43.29 over at Amazon, debating whether or not to buy a couple. Sweet deal. Anyone have any experience with them? Worth this price?

Haven't bought a lot or came across a ton of good deal but i did get a Dave Genz pro rod. normally $100 cabelas had it in the discounted down to $48 and they gave me another 40% off so i got it for under $30. That was a sweet deal. also just picked up a like new strikemaster Lazer 6" off craigslist for $30. Going to be make an adapter for the drill soon. Been looking for a deal on a 1 man flip over shanty. Guy wouldn't email me back on craigslist as he had one for $50. Got a couple leads on a couple more but nothing in hand yet. Some of you guys have got some sweet deals!

Dicks sports has 20 off 100 right now for those that shop there foe gear if looking at a couple ice rod or even reels or combos that may be worth it? I don't think they discount st croix or shimano so keep it in mind to read the rules on the use of the 20 off of 100...

Amazon has has the FishHunter Pro (all black unit, no bottom mapping, no 3D contouring) at $136.39 and Prime Ship.  The Pro model has been on a price skid since 7/25.  Regular price is $199.99.  I know, especially with this group, that this won't generate much interest, but for anyone who's looking for an inexpensive, workable, portable unit for hole hopping or for a spare, this is a really good buy.  If I was going to buy one of these units (Deeper, FishHunter, etc.) strictly for ice fishing, this would likely be my unit of choice, especially at this price point.  Mark

Does anyone on here have experience with any of the Fishhunter or Deeper units? At this price i'm considering the Fishhunter Pro for hole hopping.

the deeper unit is a overseas company that you have to send your unit in for repairs. that's a big negative for me.
from other reading i found it loses bluetooth very easily and is a pita to reconnect it and the range is much shorter than advertised. battery life will be much less in freezing temps. their software/app looks nice tho.
for ice fishing a power source would be a better option being we sit right next to it to fish, rather than battery alone. with portable charging banks, that would also be helpful.
next issue will be lack of interference rejection. also the cone angle and target separation.

All good points. I have a few portable charging banks so I have that covered. I've also got a Helix Ice 5 so battery life is not an issue, I'm more looking for a hole hopping sonar, or something to use when my son/buddy shows up without a sonar.

It does look like the FishHunter pro is "tri-frequency" w/ three Cone Angles. Not sure on interference rejection though.

Hey Debbie Downer(3300), you need to catch up on your reading. ;)  The Deeper has two wifi models now.  So does FishHunter.  The bluetooth models (all of them) are being phased out in favor of wifi.  I have read hundreds of reviews on all of these units and  rarely see someone complain about battery life (lithium ion btw).  In the phones and  tablets used as viewers - YES!, but not so much for the sonar units themselves.  Read the OVERWHELMINGLY positive reveiws on Amazon for the wifi devices from both companies and you'll see (for the most part) that these units work very well for ice fishing sans SOME of  the bells and whistles of much, much, much more expensive units.  Geez.  I loaded both the Deeper and FishHunter apps to my phone to get a feel for how well the user interface worked, how intuitive they were.  They both work well, but I guess I would give the edge to Deeper.  These are really very nice units for the price, especially the deal noted. 

In deference, you are correct about the Deeper.  I believe Lithuania is the country of origin.  That is a big negative I agree.  FishHunter is based in Ontario, CA.  I would guess as these products become more mainstream, factory authorized service centers will start popping up in the US to service them.

SUNNFISH 0))): Try to contact IS user Loudenback.  He purchased a FishHunter 3D back in December.  I believe he was very happy with it, although it doesn't appear he has checked in in several months.  :(    Interference rejection is only an issue if you're fishing in a close group with multiple sonars.  When you're hole hopping, typically you're not.

Picked up a new Marcum Showdown Troller 2.0 on Amazon for $85 (free shipping too) a few weeks back.  I don't really need one but for $85 I figured I'd give it a try.  Might come in handy when I want to walk into a lake or hole hop and want to get down to the bare minimum in gear/weight.  I can always justify more ice gear.   ;D  Also found a Stryker Ice Transport on CL.  Figure I could get just about everything I need in there except for the auger and the bucket.

Not very good photos or videos of the transporter online that i have found. How do you like it? I am in the market for a rod/gear bag. I have looked at that one a number of times and think it looks cool but cant tell how well i would be able to organize everything just judging by the pics that i have seen

I have the transporter bag ...one thing its huge ...my buddy jokes its my golf club bag ...it has replaced a backpack that I use to bring ...easy to switch out rods ..great  at the end of day pack up... the four side zipper compartments are great for utility/tackle boxes  .

I just recently got the SI smaller rod bag ....for my light rods and smaller walk in travels

This is a rod case from a local guy here in Minneapolis.  He builds custom rods but has these cases too.  They aren't cheap but I have seen one and they are really nice and really light.  Just thought I'd share as this is not something you are going to see at your local sporting goods store or on Amazon:  http://ace-custom-rods.myshopify.com/products/rod-and-tackle-case

On the Striker bag, it is definitely good sized.  I have an Otter box for my rods that is great for transporting on a trip but not so great for a guy who does mostly walk in fishing.  They really protect the rods there is no doubt about that but they are big and you either have to carry it by the handle or put it in the sled which takes up a lot of space.  Plus you have to have an extra box or carrying case for tackle.  I figure the Striker allows me to put rods, tackle and other odds and ends in one package.  Should help free up some space in the sled too since I can wear the case which also keeps my hands free.  I'll give it a try and let you know what I think.  One thing I can see already that I don't like is that there is too much fabric in the area where you put the rods in.  For anyone that likes to use a jiggin' rap like I do, you know those hooks will find any fabric within 20 feet and bury themselves in it.  So, looks like I will need some lure wraps for sure.

Cool deal man! Keep us up to date with what you think about it. It looks like a nice bag but a little expensive to order without knowing some feedback first. Good luck this upcoming season.

Wondering if that guy has a hard side case like the skb cases or even lakewood cases ? Or is the one shown hard side ? I need rod protection is why I ask??

The foam inserts are hard which gives you the rod protection.  This guy builds expensive rods and he builds these cases to protect those.  His phone number is on the site and you can call him directly to ask any questions you might have.  If you get one, you'll have to let us know what you think.  Thanks!
