Best new thing out there hands down IMO is the new magnet Blade cover for the lite-flight augers. Factory one blows and the cold snap one I have always hated with a passion. This new cover fits like a glove and is solid.

 Just for cooking on your grill comes to mind ..keeping the wind off of your outside fire pit/barrel .

Interesting wind break

https://www.sportsmans.com/fishing-gear-supplies/ice-fishing/ice-fishing-shelters-accessories/lost-creek-wind-block-panel-hub-ice-fishing-shelter/p/1740714
I got one of these for the beach. (I don't like baking in the sun)
I suppose it would work for a wind break on the ice also. Weight it with your chair and gear or I suppose you could screw it down.

Or if just running tipups. Allows the protection, yet no need to fumble with zippers trying to get out of the hub or flip to check a... "FLAG"!!!  :woot: :woot: :woot:

Well I guess I picked up the 13 Fishing Snitch Pro 32" to play with this year.  Had to be the 32" so I can give it a better comparison to the Beaver Dam glass noodle 32".

Well first thing first is the dismal short spaced stripper guide.  Still at 8.5" from the reel stem isn't too bad, could be worse.  If it were spaced to 10.5" it would be a far better product.  I don't expect too much tip bounce but will see for sure once it hooks up a few fish.  The updated evolve reel seat is wonderful solid.  Bare rod weighs in 1.99 oz. compared to the Beaver Dam at 2.33 oz.  The micro tip guides are well typical of a Snitch.

Eurotackle has the V2 darter.  They no longer have their original 2" darter lure.

There are some changes as the V2 now has a little tail wing so it's kind of like a Jigging Rap lure now.  Comes in three sizes.



Micro : 1" - 1/16 oz
#5 : 2" - 1/4 oz
#7: 2.75" - 3/4oz

Eurotackle lures always looks great, but they haven't hit the hot lure of the day for me yet.

I've already have a half dozen different variations of Jigging Raps from other makers, so no hurry to get the Eurotackle version.  Although having both split ring attached trebles is kind of nice.

I would've wished they would've expanded on their original darter into more sizes, especially smaller version like a 1" length.

Has anyone seen the Clam Pinhead Minnow 1/32oz size yet? I love tiny jigging spoons, so they sound amazing to me!

I checked them out in Sioux Falls at the Ice Institute. Pretty impressive detail for such a small spoon. I bought a few of them the other day.

What is it like? I've got a 6in laser hand sugar on a drill and have the cold snap on it......if this new one would fit and better I'd switch.

I also ended up getting an Eskimo 8in pistol bit last season and would like a better blade cover for it then the factory one with a bungie.

I saw the magnetic cover for the Ice Auger as well.  I'm just gonna glue some magnets into my existing cover to see if that works.  I also like the bait pucks from Eagle Claw that have magnets built in to the bottom.

I am eager to get my hands on the magnetic cover from Strikemaster, just haven't found the 8" in stock anywhere other than some fishy looking website. Hoping to catch one at a legitimate retailer soon. Had to patch my Eskimo 450xd last season after catching the inside with the auger when I wasn't being careful.

Really interested in the magnetic cover. I hate my cold snap cover, I thought I was the only one who thought it was a piece of 💩. Heard the iced up podcast talking about it, might have sold me on it now!

Huh I loved my ColdSnap cover. Zero effort to put on and take off. Asked them to start making one for the the 10  Ion G2 and they acted like they were mad I asked.

I have the new strikemaster cover on my lite flite 8.  Magnets are the additional connection points, with two clips being the main.  Time will tell but the little I've had it has led me to throw the cold snap in the trash already.

I sliced the original strap with the blade once and had to buy some replacements. Those blades are wicked sharp, got the inside of my shack with them once too. Still looking for one in stock somewhere that doesn't charge $10-15 shipping.

The regular 8" StrikeMaster blade cover with a Berkeley tie wrap installed works perfectly fine for me.




I tried a cord similar to that but just didnt seem to want to stay on ...I have a Pistol Bit that it works on just fine from the factory ..Did you modify you SM lite  cover in some way ..that cover is a PITA.

No mods it's just the 8" version of the Berkeley cinch tie with a knot holding the ball end fixed in place. The opposite end even has a pull tab.


Thanks ...I see the notch on the ball locks into the SM cover ...my problem is my bungee ball is round w/o a notch to grip the cover ...just slips. The search for the Berkley ones begins today.

St. Croix...

Skandic Ice rods release also two updated baitcasting models of 34" length of which is identical with the Mojo 34" in design.  Only with better components for a retail of $110.  Impressive build quality but still limited to MH and H power only.  Has a precision feel better than what the Mojo offers so lure presentation may be more precise. 

There is so much potential for them to make a M and ML power casting rod but still why they don't.  No demands and has to be a true custom niche.
