Found a new 6" Mora auger at Meijer marked 24.99. If I had not just got an 8" lazer I would have most definitely had brought it home with me. Still, I thought about it the whole time my wife and I were shopping.

Not sure how good of deals I got, but I purchased the Frabill Recon for $177 no tax and free shipping after a 20% coupon from Kittery. I also purchased a orange 6" Nils for $127, no tax and free shipping. Unfortunately, the ice is steadily melting in MN due to rising temps, so I might not get to use them much this year.

hope you have better luck with your demo jiffy pro4 lite.i got mine today its in great shape but the breather tube from the head to  the carb was broken in half and after over 150 pulls it will not start.very unhappy with jiffy I understand that these are demo model but are supposed to be factory inspected and running. put oil in,ive checked for spark,new bottle of prop,checked the kill switch even put a new breather tube on.it backfired once and that's it.doesnt feel like it has any compression.contacted jiffy and we will  see what happens next.ive had 5 jiffys in my lifetime and im very disappointed right now.start in less than 5 pulls..right.i thought the best place to buy a used/demo model was straight from the factory.on another note the 8" auger bit is like new and the 5 inch bit I bought for 50 bucks is brand new.

I also bought the Jiffy pro 4 lite for 229. Shipped fast. Looks new. Filled with oil put new propane bottle on fired up in 3 pulls and 1 after that. Went and tested it out drilled a dozen holes. Instant power when hitting the throttle. Drills very well. Plenty of power for the 8" bit. Very impressed. I also bought the very heavy duty cabelas auger Hauler bag for 29 bucks. Dr. I wouldn't give up yet get it squared away with jiffy you will be impressed. No more choking priming smoke. That 5" will really go !

ive been round and round with jiffy so far.they will not take the power head back or exchange it.no customer service  so far.the best I could get was take a the auger to a repair shop for repair under the 1 year warranty.the  shop even said it has no compression and wondered why I was bringing it to him.i said jiffy was no help and wont take the auger back.im pissed.jiffy wont take responsibility for this auger being a lemon.its not over im a fighter and wont give up until this is made right.lol

That is very lame. I can't believe they won't exchange it. It came in the box messed up. When I was looking at them I decided to call one of their pro staff to get first hand review. Pete Maina is who I contacted and he said it was awesome. Said he would no way have his face on the commercial for it otherwise. He said that demo deal was a great way to get one. Feel bad it worked out for me and you get a incomplete in the box. What did feldman say when you explained the breather was off and it won't run?  Says factory serviced right on the power head. QC needs to step up and own this one.

they told me that there was no way it left the factory with any broken parts that is a lie I showed the mechanic the broken breather tube which was also covered in oil.jiffy rep says im trying to start it wrong or stored the head in the wrong position.ive tried no throttle,half throttle and full throttle in temps from 20 to 55 degrees and it wont start or run.they don't get it.im not having problems with it running it don't start has no compression what so ever besides the resistance of the recoil.this will go in my favor Wisconsin is not that far away I will go to jiffy and cram this auger somewhere.lol.i have owned jiffy augers for over 30 years and still have a 1970 1 armed bandit and cant believe im being treated like this.should be as easy as exchanging powerheads.imo.i let ya know how this unfolds.im glad you guys got running augers and hope they stay running because dealing with jiffy is like talking to a wall.

Elite 5x CHIRP for $150 @ Cabelas.  Pretty good deal for someone looking for a fishfinder.  Doesn't have GPS but you could sell the CHIRP transducer for more than you can buy the ice transducer for, making it even cheaper if you're only going to be using it for ice.

I was able to move on from my original Dave Genz Fish Trap II, to a Clam Voyager TCX. 

Got the TCX from Cabela's, was $699 and got it for 35% off plus $20 which ended up being $444 plus tax.
My new problem is I can barely load it into the pickup by myself.  lol  I might have to get an ATV type ramp.

I have a nanook.  It weighs 85 lbs from factory.  When i go by myself i remove a seat which helps.  But i still have to muscle up one end and lean it on my Equinox, then get on the other end and lift and slide it in.  Glad I didn't buy the Yukon, it is bigger and heavier.  It may not fit in my  equinox.

just a little update on this issue.im dumber than a box of rocks and figure id get another auger at the demo 229 price and have 2 jiffy pro4 lite augers for the price of one.i get the new one it had lots  of compression but the recoil was shattered. jiffy is sending a new recoil but they wanted me to take it to the jiffy repair center first I said no.runs great started on 2nd pull and 1 now.i just picked up the other pro4 lite auger from the jiffy repair center and the guy says its junk..cracked piston cylinder and stuck intake valve.keep in mind the engine was supposed to be tested/running at the factory.he says he called jiffy all week and no one answered and he told me that's the last jiffy his shop will ever work on.i called feldmann/jiffy and they are sending another power head which is what I expected all along so im pleased as long as it runs and no broken parts.jiffy qc and factory inspectors must be overlooking repairs and just offing the demo units.

I bought a Jiffy propane lite 2 years ago was very excited until I got home and tried to start it I must have pulled that thing 50 times and it wouldn't fire up. Called jiffy and explained to them what happened they sent me a new power head and this time I noticed it wasn't a lite model put the propane on and 2nd pull it started right up been working fine ever since. So I got the upgrade and paid the lite price so I feel pretty lucky after what I have read here.

Somebody posted the StrikerIce  memorial day sale in another post.  I jumped at that, 30% off anything.    I bought my son a pair of the Guardian bibs.   I was new to ice fishing last winter and jumped in head first.  My kids (college aged) love it too.   So in the past year I have bought a Guardian jacket for me, and 2 sets of guardian bibs for the kids.  I found a set of Mossi bibs for me (they are more a snowmobile bib, but they are floaters and compliment my guardian jacket.

I won't name all the other stuff I bought to get started...but well likely over $1400.  I actually can't wait for winter. 

I think the sale goes until June 10.

Yup, somebody bought one yesterday after I posted and the price shot back up to $248 today.  Amazon's prices can and do change daily.  When someone posts a great deal on Amazon, you've got to act fast and that one was a perfect example.  One purchase is all it took to push the price back up $73.

Guys, just to be clear, the prices above are ONLY for the specific rods listed.  While other lengths and actions are discounted, these two rods are the most steeply discounted and are great buys at current pricing.  If you want either or both at these prices, don't dilly dally.

Clam Kenai Pro 9710 is back down to $172.54.  (Lowest price ever)

check the blades.probably the Chinese junk blades that last a few months..buying Swedish blades are the expensive part of buying a auger at that price.the last few new strikemaster augers I bought had vmc stamped on the blades.those blades have held up but the china blades do not.still  a good deal on a  auger tho.

If you guys are looking for a solid spinning reel, here is a good price on a Shimano Sienna.  I ended up picking up two of these late last season for $24/ea and now they are $21.  I have seen them elsewhere from $30-35 smaller size and close to $50 on the larger sizes.  I have the 500FD size.  Use mine for deep water perch/smelt and another set up on a medium action jigging rod for eyes.

Post by: 3300 on Aug 12, 2016, 11:45 AM
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.

Post by: Deal Ninja on Aug 12, 2016, 12:17 PM
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.

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 (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.

Post by: holehopper on Aug 16, 2016, 05:30 PM
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!

Eskimo Sting Ray 33cc with 8-Inch Quantum Ice Auger - $237.98  The price started sliding August 10th.  Currently at its lowest price ever.  This unit occasionally drops to $279.00, but its never been this low before.  https://www.amazon.com/Eskimo-Sting-8-Inch-Quantum-Auger/dp/B000BUKAWC/ref=sr_1_19?s=hunting-fishing&ie=UTF8&qid=1471279008&sr=1-19&refinements=p_75%3A25-  Retail is $329.99 I believe.

8/16  1:00pm  $229.33

Told one of my buddy's looking into a power auger about this deal this morning Mark, thanks for posting it! Last night it was $223, looked a few minutes ago, down again to $217.86 with free shipping....pretty darn good deal if you're looking for a power auger!

Post by: Deal Ninja on Aug 18, 2016, 07:52 AM
LOL  I was just getting ready to post the new price and you beat me to it Ed!  $217.86!  Over a hundred bucks off msrp!  Tell your bud not to dilly dally if he wants it!  The price can shoot back up in a heartbeat on Amazon.  Some of these deals are so good though, you can purchase the item and if you don't like it, you can still sell it for more than you paid for it!

Edit:  $206.97  8/18/16 1:00pm
$205.74  8/19/16 5:00am. (Becoming a steal at this price)

At that price I'm wondering if they are clearancing out old stock to make for a new model?  Maybe a higher voltage, 10" capable electric auger.
Title: Re: Best Late Ice Deals!! Lets hear em!
Post by: Deal Ninja on Aug 21, 2016, 03:17 AM
Yeah, I don't know.  The seller is Reeds in MN.  Maybe they're just trying to move last year's models before new stock starts arriving?  Dunno.  It's a small risk if ION has a major innovation or improvement coming with new models, but there's a lot of folks shopping the 2016 model cars on dealer lots right now for the same reason - big savings.

Thats a great deal on the ION. I picked one up last season to upgrade from my old gas Jiffy and oh man....I was really impressed with the battery life, cutting speed and the power :). Cant say enough good things.

Post by: gonehunting on Aug 21, 2016, 08:55 PM
I found this on a Craigslist ad in Minneapolis.  May be something new coming......New battery design to take you from 1000 inches of ice to 1600 inches on one charge.


Here's what we've all been waiting for! Ardisam has redesigned the Ion 40 volt electric auger for 2016. I have attached a brochure which you will need to print out to adequately read the features. It now has a 5 amp hour battery which gives you up to 1600 inches of cutting on one charge. The powerhead and handlebars are redesigned for cutting into hard to get places such as the corner of an ice house. It has a cast bottom with a center point for better cutting both of new holes or existing holes.
 MSRP is $659.99; MAP is $629.99.

Thanks for the info, that is really awesome!

I wonder if that XC5 battery will be compatible with last years ION auger and ION charger... at 40V, electrically it is compatible and it should just take longer to charge on the existing ION charger but I wonder if the battery mounting slot dimensions have remained the same or have they changed so it can only be used on the ION X. We'll have to wait and see, thanks for sharing! :tipup:

This is a pretty good deal if you're looking for a fully insulated hub.  This would be comparable to the Polar Bird 3T less the insulated floor.

Frabill Bunker 250 Hub Insulated 2 - 3 Man Shelter  - $203.27 and free shipping with Prime.  Normally sells right at $300.00, so a decent buy if you've been looking for a fully insulated hub.

https://www.amazon.com/Frabill-Bunker-250-Hub-Insulated/dp/B00XD5LWPG/ref=sr_1_2?s=hunting-fishing&ie=UTF8&qid=1471875556&sr=1-2&keywords=frabill+bunker

PS.  I'm a little hesitant to post sales on Frabill shelters given 3300's bad experience with his Aegis 2110.  Also, this shack hit an all time low once this month already of $171.97, so in this case it may pay to watch this item and see if keeps slipping before pulling the trigger.

So, I got a deal today that I couldn't pass up or pass on.  Sometimes they're just too good for me to pass up even when I don't really need things.  I snagged a Clam Bigfoot XL 2000 Hub for $5.68 and free shipping.  I did pass this deal on to another member who had expressed an interest in a hub, but by the time I got my shipping notification, the hub was listed as "Currently Unavailable."   Deals like this are available on Amazon, but you have to be patient and persistent; look for things where they shouldn't be, mis-catagorized, etc.   This hub's retail price is $269.99 and I got it for $5.86 and shipped free.  I'm slightly afraid that I'll receive a Clam ice anchor in the mail, but, lol, we'll see.

Nope, not to be.  Amazon just sent me a notification that my order was being cancelled and a refund was being issued.  I'm not very happy, but it was a third party vender sale and Amazon only stands behind 3rd party vendors so far.  I'm not really too cranky given that it was clearly a listing screw up, but why send a shipping notification?  LOL.  Oh well, I tried.

Marknixon, that deal would have definitely taken the cake for 'best late ice deal'. Seems like there should be some way to make them honor the price.

Ive been a little off my game the last few days, but here's one for those looking for the biggest, badest auger on the ice.  The Jiffy 60-08 for $275.40.  Regular price is $460ish.  This is a steal for this behemoth of an auger.  I can't stress this enough.  If you want it, jump on it fast! because once word gets out, the deal will be over in a heartbeat!  Good luck!  ;)

A couple of other deals, while not as impressive, are decent just the same are the Milwaukee Fuel M18 2704-22 is $30 off at $269 and the Shappell Bay runner is $75 off at $350.  Amazon as well.

To go along with the Fuel, the K-drill that I thought was a good deal for 225 is now 199.99 on amazon. That is the same price as the 6".

Guys/Gals, Lowest price ever on the 42cc Strikemaster Lazer Mag with the 10" auger - $306.03  Regular price is $489.95.  Definitely a steal if you like the larger hole.  This one has been steadily falling for awhile now, but is truly a bargain at its current price.

PS.  The Jiffy 60-08 posted above has hit $246.59.  Also a ridiculous deal for a beast of an auger.

The Shappell Bay Runner has just hit an all-time low also of $317.94 with free shipping.  Regular price is $426.69

Vexilar Deals!  Amazon has these three units marked down ~$200. 00 each.  They are not set up for ice fishing though.  Two have puck ducers and one has the high speed ducer.  You would have to buy a Vexilar ice ducer or already have one that would work with one of these units.  All three of these units regularly sell in the $400+ range.  These would be great buys if you had an FL-8SE and just wanted to upgrade the head unit.  The Vex ice ducers sell for $82 - $115, so you could actually buy one of these units and the ice ducer separately and still be quite a bit ahead and still have a spare ducer for the boat.

To go along with the Fuel, the K-drill that I thought was a good deal for 225 is now 199.99 on amazon. That is the same price as the 6". It was 269.99 on amazon before and  retails at 249.99. https://www.amazon.com/K-DRILL-8-In-Ice-Auger/dp/B017S2XC3E/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1472314422&sr=8-1&keywords=k-drill
When everyone is selling, pre-season, at a discounted price it usually means a newer model is about to hit the market. Check out Reeds prices on the
6"and 8" K-Drills.

Suprized my self.. I also showed him that gander mtn has eskimo made shanties labeled as gander mtn buddy of mine has a gander mtn brand ice shanty and on a few labels states made by eskimo for gander mtn .. that one of the few ways to get a shanty is knowing who makes what.. just like clam I am sure they make othe people's stuff for them.. but ya it been there for at least three seasons.. I think it going for the original black friday price it was sold for that season.. I think it did not sell cause the windows were swen in and had one door.. but for the price how can you complain?? 130 for a good shanty .. but I might have gotten him a discount on the eskimo only time will tell..

I always thought about getting one for early ice as they only weighed around 20 lbs if I remember right (would have to go back and look at my past catalogs I have and find out). would be easy enough to carry out by hand. and when paired with one of the cooler chairs and drill auger would make a good early ice set up.

Reeds does have some great prices on augers, but BEWARE anything ICEGATOR.
I bought (paid for + shipping) their 9.5" auger bit August 2015. I started calling ICEGATOR January 2016 and was assured (many times) it would be arriving soon. Nothing yet.

All of these boots, every single one, regularly retail for over $200+, so it's pretty clear how good these deals are.  There are lots of bargains available right now in boots, I just picked the best of the best to share.  Good luck!

A couple of days ago I was in the process of ordering the Eskimo HC40 Propane on Amazon for a nice price when it changed before I completed my order... called them on it and they said "sorry,  nothing we can do for you"  >:(

Yup. ^^^^^  Doesn't that grind your gears.   >:(  I've personally watched the price on an item change six times in 24 hours.  I don't recall what it was now, but it was something I posted in this thread.  On the positive side though, I have saved myself, friends and family and IS peeps hundreds if not thousands of dollars by price watching.  I've purchased $70 rods for $25 and $200+ boots for $27.  Fill your browsing history with everything you're looking for and check it at least once or twice a day.  Do NOT put items in your cart or wish list.  You're tipping your hand to Amazon that you intend to buy.  That's a place to start.

Watch that auger two posts up.  It's the last one and it'll keep dropping until someone grabs it, then they'll shoot back up well over $400.  You can count on it.

LOL  But seriously, you really need to consider the electric options.  They are the way to go.  Light, powerful and no gas leaks or fumes or starting problems.  No making special trips to Wallyworld to buy propane tanks, etc., etc.  They are the way of the future in augers.  There's almost too many advantages to name.  Only downsides are extremely thick ice and realistic life expectancies of rather expensive lithium ion battery packs.  I sold my old Eskimo gasser last year and never looked back.

I have considered an electric auger but it seems that everything I ever had that was electric was not very good ... Leaf Blower, Trimmers etc... but that was a while back I suppose things are probably better now.

Not trying to break your heart, but it isn't going to happen now for about 1yr  I watched Amazon for a deal on a vex head with zoom for about 1yr. What I found was right around the End of August begining of September the "open water" vexilar kits go super cheap on Amazon. Last year I bought an FL22 HD & two FL18 open water kits for under $200 each. It is a seasonal clear out inventory sale that last a few hours to maybe a day or so. If you missed it, it won't be back till next year.

I only said that because you just bought one that you said might be a backup to your other one. You don't even have your second one yet, and your talking about pulling the trigger on a third..

Oh I see,  I misunderstood.  I thought you were telling me that the gas power jobs are not desirable any longer, etc.  Anyhow,  I don't have a power auger at all right now.  I was referring to keeping the Jiffy Lite as a back up to the Propane HC40 that I plan to order..so I would only have 2 augers in total.  Then again there is the ION Electric .. ;D
Title: Re: Best Late Ice Deals!! Lets hear em!
Post by: Ice Scratcher on Oct 01, 2016, 06:07 PM
Lol, I misunderstood as well..

That makes a lot more sense now.. Didn't realize the one you just picked up was a possible backup to one you were still planning on getting...

My Eskimo will be 30 years old soon, and she won't have a price on her till I'm long gone..I think she is pretty much just reaching "broken in" now.. Here she is after a tune up and sharpening..

Like most things the older augers were built much better I think.   Many years ago I had a Jiffy Model 30 and it was unstoppable, heavy as hell but it was a work horse.  I wish I still had it but it long gone now ... sold it 25 years ago, probably still running too.

Cabelas has the Pflueger Patriarch marked down to $129.99 in ALL sizes in the Bargain Cave!  This is $70 off the regular retail of $199.99 or 35% off!  The 25 model in the Patriarch series weighs only 5.6 oz!  A great buy if you're looking for a high end spinning reel for that new custom rod!

I wouldn't normally post a deal on a single ice boot in a specific size, but if you wear a size 11-12 boot, this deal is just ridiculous on the Korkers TundraJack!  $48.74!  Geez, I hope someone here can take advantage of this awesome deal!  I own a pair of these and absolutely love them.  Light and very warm and ready for any ice conditions with interchangeable carbide tipped or regular lugged soles.

Another great Pflueger reel buy from Glenn's if the Patriarch is a little too rich for your blood.   The Pflueger Supreme XT Spinning Reel SUPXTSP25X - $99.99!  marked down from $149.99 so 33% off!

^^^^^Good deal 3300!  I haven't purchased the heavy duty spikes for mine yet.  So far I've not needed them.  The microspikes that come with the boots do a great job in most conditions.

Post by: 3300 on Oct 06, 2016, 09:41 AM
thanks!
i was tempted, but will see how they do with the ones that come with it.
depending on fit and warmth, i may keep both and have one pair dedicated for ice only and the other for working.

 I bought the extra aggressive tread's for the Korkers. They are sweet. Only problem is, they cost as much as I paid for the boots. After getting and seeing the spikes, I would buy them again.

I bought one a year or so ago. Works great. I took the two foam blocks out and put a foam liner on each side to sandwich the rods so they can't move around in the box. Couple ice fishing stickers to make it yours and it's good.

Not sure if this was posted when they first went on sale, but Glen's has had the Shimano Sienna on sale for a while now, $21.99. Free shipping over $49.   Sedona, Stratic and several other reels are a few bucks off also.

FYI: I have heard the sienna 500 is being discontinued like the sedona 500 was.  If you look around the sienna 500 is getting harder to find.

Been watching that Frabill shack since it was put on here. At a certain num I might pull the trigger but without it being insulated its hard to justify it for myself. I have the Clam Explorer already which is about the same shack, possibly a little bigger but without side doors. It would be my shack for out west primarily and I worry about the wind. The thermal serves 2 purposes it insulates and it helps when its windy holding the shack down so again hard to pull the trigger. In the other hand it is a new shack with the side doors so it is a bit of an upgrade   ??? Decisions Decisions.  Do I have to sign up for Prime to get the free shipping?

It also looks like Striker has bumped their prices $100 for the combo coat/bibs.  Last year you could find the hardwater  from $339-369/set shipped and now I am seeing around $459 for the set shipped.  Correct me if I am wrong, but I believe they made some minor changes to this years production, but $100 worth?

Title: Re: Best Early Ice Deals!! Lets hear em!
Post by: 3300 on Oct 12, 2016, 09:38 AM
i chose hardwater for it's thicker shell (600 denier, like shappell shacks) and it's warmest (posted) insulation.
the price is the same as last year. they were 220$ ish each item, so 440$ ish. i bought mine and my wife's from dicks sports with 25% off and 100$ off when spending 500$ or more on cyber week deals and free ship. they have free return shipping too and we had to upsize her prizm suit because they run small.

i fish on my knees a lot and last season i had to send mine in because my knee was getting soaked. they cut the side of the knee area open and repaired the seam tape. and closed it up and sent it back. it cost me shipping to them is all. i hope they fix what seam tape they used then or else it will continue to rip. if you don't put your knees in water or wet snow you'll be fine with them for sure. i am still waiting to see if they rip or not because of a super short season last year and getting them sent back so late in the season.

they are much warmer than my clam blue man suit (ice armor) and my all black artic armor and a lot of time went into concept compared to both of those suits i don't use now for ice fishing.

I was going to get the coat and not the bibs, but looking at the coat the tag inside says it will float you for up to 2 hours only as a suit, coat AND bibs. so I ordered the frabill Ifloat coat that is a uscg approved pfd from walmart to check it out and if I dont like it just take it back to the store

Well just checked my cart and the set that I put in the cart is still there for $359.  I added an additional set to check and it shows the items at $459 but didn't delete or update the old pricing of the original set....I might give them a call and see if they will honor the pricing since it was less than a month ago that I added these...otherwise I will have to wait for a black Friday deal..

i fish on my knees a lot and last season i had to send mine in because my knee was getting soaked. they cut the side of the knee area open and repaired the seam tape. and closed it up and sent it back. it cost me shipping to them is all. i hope they fix what seam tape they used then or else it will continue to rip. if you don't put your knees in water or wet snow you'll be fine with them for sure. i am still waiting to see if they rip or not because of a super short season last year and getting them sent back so late in the season.

they are much warmer than my clam blue man suit (ice armor) and my all black artic armor and a lot of time went into concept compared to both of those suits i don't use now for ice fishing.
I had the same issue with my knees. I sent my bibs in twice, and they finally replaced them. Hopefully these new ones will work out better . I'm glad to hear that I was not the only one having wet  knees as they led me to believe.  Other than that issue, I love the hard water set up.

Ok, I found a deal that's not really beneficial for ice fishing but it's still a great deal!! I just bought a norchill cooler bag (48 can) on amazon and I haven't used it yet but from what I've read they're pretty awesome along with AO coolers. I bought it for $41 (normally around $70-$80) and it's now down to $33.15. That's a steal considering they're around $70+ normally. 

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00BV2AKLA/ref=od_aui_detailpages00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Another thing that I wanted to mention is that you can use a discover card to get the good deals after the come out even if you've purchased an item a couple months ago. I don't want to vouch for credit card companies but I love my discover card because of this. It's called a price match protection and you can get the better price on an item for 90 days from the purchase date, you just have to fill out some paperwork or an online form they send you. So since that's dropped to $33.15 I can call them and they'll send me a check for $8 since that's how much it dropped and since I bought it with my discover card. Last year, I bought Striker Bibs at full price then would just screen shot better deals as they came out until it bottomed out and that's the price I got on the bibs, I just had to wait a few weeks for them to send me a check. Pretty sweet deal, just search Discover Card Price Protection.

Been watching that Frabill shack since it was put on here. At a certain num I might pull the trigger but without it being insulated its hard to justify it for myself. I have the Clam Explorer already which is about the same shack, possibly a little bigger but without side doors. It would be my shack for out west primarily and I worry about the wind. The thermal serves 2 purposes it insulates and it helps when its windy holding the shack down so again hard to pull the trigger. In the other hand it is a new shack with the side doors so it is a bit of an upgrade   ??? Decisions Decisions.  Do I have to sign up for Prime to get the free shipping?

I just pulled the trigger on this,$328.....hope I don't regret it. Yeah,I wish it was insulated but I like the side doors and it's prolly $400 or more cheaper than something comparable insulated.  Thoughts?

Damn you! I was waiting for it to get down to $300 before I pulled the trigger and now it is back up over $700!  You got a good buy... if I didn't have a wheelhouse and a handful of portables already I would have bought it.... please let me know how you like it.... gonna keep my eye out to see if it goes back on sale once they restock

I saw that earlier tonight and was somewhat relieved lol. You made the decision for me and now I dont have to watch it anymore. Again at some point ill got to a side step but thinking it will have to be insulated. You got a great deal though and hopefully it is everything you want.

Congratulations javabone!  I'm glad someone here got the deal.  In terms of actual dollars saved and percentage off retail, that shanty was my best deal find of the year.  Congrats again.  At $328, I was almost ready to buy it myself, cut some windows out and re-purpose it as a deer blind.  Totally serious btw.

$75.99, free shipping. Typical ~$100, I've only seen it $5 cheaper than this once.
I love my inline Eagle Claw, bought another one and the first one broke. I've read how it can be hit or miss with those; hoping Betty will last!

Also, 25% off select ice fishing items at Reed's, nice!

Here's to hoping to be on the ice in less than three months...

I think the chance is zero at this point. The seller just opened an account and everything she has is listed for $9.88. My bet is the order wont cancel but rather, each buyer will have to cancel/request a refund due to the item never shipping or arriving. The seller is prolly banking on making a little cash from folks who never bother to complain/cancel.

Wish these guys would have better promos, 5% off $50 isn't very good, only $2.50...better than nothing I guess. They usually have some good deals at the end of the season on their tungsten jigs and other ice stuff but you always have to spend a certain amount to get free shipping.

Post by: Flagging on Oct 20, 2016, 01:59 PM
Just a bit of warning on those 3rd party sellers, the process for refunding money can be a lot more tedious and can involve a claim process through Amazon, as opposed to buying directly from Amazon.  When you buy through a third party, the funds can be transferred right away to the 3rd party as opposed to buying through Amazon fulfilled items where the money is not charged until shipping.

 With that said, I placed an order one one of these the first round last week and the money was refunded right away.

Just a bit of warning on those 3rd party sellers, the process for refunding money can be a lot more tedious and can involve a claim process through Amazon, as opposed to buying directly from Amazon.  When you buy through a third party, the funds can be transferred right away to the 3rd party as opposed to buying through Amazon fulfilled items where the money is not charged until shipping.

 With that said, I placed an order one one of these the first round last week and the money was refunded right away.

I wonder what is "in this" for the fake seller?  Do they hope that a few buyers forget to request refunds on the item?  Are they just gathering Amazon user info?  I don't really see why anyone would take the time to sell stuff they don't really have any intention of ever delivering?

Honestly the fact that they have reposted now 3x with new prices that are still clearly well below selling point level tells me its a scam.  Fool me once shame on you.....   If it had been a simple type mistake it would have been corrected to the proper amount not a dollar more.   Im not sure what they are getting out of it but its possible they make money from those that forget to get a refund or are too lazy to pursue it and or they are able to gather personal information for the purposes of selling it to cold callers or other advertising scams.  I would stay away.

Update on the order I placed on Amazon. Got my stuff in the mail and opened up my new rod. I had ordered the white noise for 25$ which I felt was a decent deal but not amazing. Well, it was labeled white noise on the package but they sent a white out. That's a great deal for a 60$ combo!

That's awesome!  I had that happen this summer with a combo,.  I just wanted the reel from the white noise combo, it was like $11 at the time, they sent white out combo.  Wish I had ordered more....

Goofy things happen when you order from the Amazon sellers.   I ordered a Fulton plastic boat trailer fender.  I opened the box and when I pulled it out I saw another one sitting in the box.   I debated whether to let them know and send it back...it sat in the garage for a couple months.  I finally decided to just throw it on a shelf in the garage.  Pulled it out of the original box and low and behold there was another one under it!  Somebody shipped me 3 boat fenders!

still waiting on my order of two of those huts.

i also placed an order for one 40$ columbia brand black bucket hat from columbia and they shipped me a case/bag of 25. been giving them out ever since. it's not my job to do theirs.

columbia has a  point system like best buy where you spend so much to get columbia money. they sent me an email the night it expired and so i tried to use it that morning and they said sorry. so no, i don't feel bad for that company at all when they make a mistake.

I just learned about this deal off of another site so I thought that I would pass it along. goicefish.com currently has 3 packs of tungsten jigs on sale for $0.99 a piece with free shipping. There are two different sizes and you can order up to 3 of each different size at this price. I can't comment on the quality of them but I figure for the $3.96 that I spent for 12 tungsten jigs it is worth the risk. They are about half way down on page 3 under the accessories tab follow the link below.

that's what I was thinking too lol.  I have a fishing buddy that is the cheapest SOB and refuses to buy tungsten jigs because of the price, claiming he can catch just as many as me with his lead jigs.  well even when I repeatedly catch more with the tungsten he stays stubborn and cheap.  I figure next time we are out ill hand him a bag of these.

For an insulated shelter and a lifetime warranty on the poles and hubs, free shipping and a floor, Polar Bird is worth a look.   

                       http://polarbird.com/ (http://polarbird.com/)

The shelters are more expensive than comparable (size) Eskimo, Clam, and Otters.  They say the insulated floor is "free."  I'd be willing to give it a shot if it were $100 cheaper since I'm not convinced an insulated floor is the way to go.  What makes this hub worth the extra money?  Very curious since I'm in the market for a 4-person hub.

First, to you fellows who ordered the Elkton:  I wish you the best of luck, but the Clam XL 2000 hub I ordered for $5.86 a couple of months ago said it shipped as well.  It didn't.  I even got an email from Amazon asking me to review the item after they had cancelled the sale and I had gotten my money back.  :roflmao:  Hate to be a Debbie Downer guys, but don't hold your breath on getting these hubs, but I'm still crossing my fingers for you. 

Secondly, I ordered and recently received the BroCraft Ice Anchor Drill Adapter from Amazon for $10.99.  It's very similar to the Eskimo steel one, but instead of steel, it's a heavy duty, very high quality machined aluminum tool.  In other words, it's really, really nice for the price.  It's $8 off it's retail of $18.99.  I was surprised at how stout it was.     https://www.amazon.com/BroCraft-Anchor-Drill-Adapter-Auger/dp/B01MAU0SH8/ref=pd_ybh_a_7?ie=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=BF86Y6BMTQGW294QHWZD  I think the icefishingdeals guy posted the deal a week or so ago, so this post is just in case your happened to miss it there.

I am having a similar experience right now on eBay.  Seller lists the MTM red plastic rod box for $16.50 with free shipping. I hit "buy it now" and the item shows $1.13 in sales tax. So I pay the total of $17.63. Guess what, item never shows up.  I check the seller feedback and there are 45 people in the last 30 days with the same issue of a "too good to be true" price, item never ships and they contact the seller.  Seller issues refunds but guess what; the refund does not include the sales tax.  So, I paid sales tax on an item I never received and when I get my refund, the sales tax mysteriously isn't included in the refund? Is it possible these sellers are hoping that people don't request a refund?  Probably. And why not try to make some free money on "sales tax"?  Sure it was only $1.13 for me but do that a few hundred times and you are talking some noticeable money for really not ever selling anything. I will be pursuing this with eBay but something to watch out for. 
Title: Re: Best Early Ice Deals!! Lets hear em!
Post by: holehopper on Oct 27, 2016, 09:23 PM
I have another update for you.  Just got off the phone with Ebay and with Amazon and learned some things that I thought I would share:

1.  If you buy an item on Ebay, Ebay provides "protection" to you for the amount of the item and any shipping costs.  So, let's say you order an item and never receive it.  Ebay will back you up on the item cost and shipping cost but NOT sales tax.  In my case, the seller charged sales tax on my item in the amount of $1.13 knowing full well they would not deliver the item to me and knowing full well there was no Ebay policy in place that required them to refund the sales tax.  It was only $1.13 for me but that is straight "profit" for them.  Have a sweatshop full of people making up false auctions for items you don't have and certainly won't ever ship and now you are making money just by setting up fake auctions. I spent 20 minutes on the phone with Ebay trying to get my $1.13 back (it is the principal of it for me...) and can absolutely confirm for you that Ebay provides you no protection on any "sales tax" you pay a seller.  To me, this is a loophole in their system and you have some malicious sellers out there starting to exploit this.

2.  If you think Ebay is bad, Amazon provides you with even less protection.  After I hung up with Ebay, I called Amazon.  If you buy an item from Amazon from a 3rd party, it is completely up to the 3rd party to provide you a refund.  Amazon will pursue a "case" for you, but their only final recourse is to kick the seller off Amazon.  YIKES.  So, a seller could list 50 items for $10 each and collect $500 in payments from buyers on items they don't have in inventory and don't ever plan to deliver to they buyer.  The buyer contacts Amazon indicating they never got their item.  Amazon then contacts the seller and starts a "case".  The seller may not ever respond.  You as the buyer are out your $10 and the seller gets kicked off Amazon.  Well, guess what, the next day the seller sets up shop with a new seller ID.  They have $500 in their pocket and are back on Amazon to do this again and again.

The moral of the story is before you place that order on a 3rd party sale on Amazon for a "too good to be true" price, be really, really careful and know that there is a decent chance that you will be out that money.  I will be very hesitant to buy from 3rd parties on Amazon from this point forward.  If you don't believe me, contact Amazon yourself.  I just got off the phone with them. 

I learned a lot in the last 45 minutes and will be much more cautious when I see these "too good to be true" items for sale on Ebay and Amazon.

Post by: 3300 on Oct 27, 2016, 09:29 PM
amazons policy is to not charge you until the item(s) ship no matter who the seller is. so if the seller bails out, no harm done because there was no charge.

ebay is a last resort for me to spend with. never been charged tax there either tho, but i don't care to pay shipping when i don't have to on sites like amazon with prime membership.

thanks for the heads up on scams going on there.

Post by: holehopper on Oct 27, 2016, 09:33 PM
Thanks 3300.  I understand what you are saying about Amazon and didn't ask them "when" you get charged for an item.  Let's say you don't get charged until the item is "shipped".....how is "shipped" defined?  Based on the seller "saying" they shipped it?  Based on a shipping label being printed?  Do you know how "shipped" is defined?  I know in many cases the seller "says" they shipped an item.  Is that enough for Amazon to allow the charge to go through?

I learned a lot in the last 45 minutes and will be much more cautious when I see these "too good to be true" items for sale on Ebay and Amazon.

I was aware of the sales tax policy of eBay. But to hear the amazon policy on 3rd party sales. I highly doubt I'll ever buy anything from a 3rd party seller ever again. I tried my luck the first go around on those Elkton hub shelters. My order got canceled, and I was not charged. Thankfully! But after reading your post about their policy in those types of sales, that is simply unacceptable in my view. If they can't hold a seller accountable and they let scam artists set up these fake accounts with "to good to be true" prices, then they should at least cover the buyers investment if the sale is a scam. I've been a member on ebay for almost 20 years. I've purchased over 500 items, and never had an issue that wasn't either resolved with the seller themselves, or that ebay didn't take action and get a refund for me. I have never bought an item that I had to pay tax on though. I don't see why they couldn't change that policy and avoid sellers taking advantage on that loop hole, but maybe they will in the future.

I wonder if the "fake" elkton shelters were some attempt to collect your credit card/amazon account info for abuse, why else would you post an item for sale you know you are going to cancel the sale on?

You are catching on.  Avoid Third Party Sellers, which is half the stuff on Amazon.  I had trouble with a Aqua Vu 715 camera  last week.  It came with broken tabs  that hold the battery in.   Very apparent the box was dropped a few times by UPS.   Amazon said I could not return it because it contained a lead acid battery.  The third party seller never mentioned that.   They sent me a label to return it for exchange.    Once they received it they were not going to refund my return shipping costs $17.00.  They couldn't find where it was broke.   I had to send them a picture of the tabs. 

If you send back damaged or broken items take pictures on your phone and keep them until the transaction is over.  Take pictures of the box if it arrives dented.

I am losing faith in Amazon as each year passes.   Seems the Prime 2 day shipping is turning into 3-5 days and you have no recourse.  Then all of a sudden they will ship you a little $2.00 item and it comes on Sunday by the USPS!

A lot of companies mark stuff as shipped so their "response" time is good, they can blame 10 day shipping on the carrier.

I agree. Multiple times my item has shown up 3 or 4 days after the order. When I call and ask amazon what's up, they offer to extend my amazon prime membership for a free month. No, that's not what I want. I wanted the item 2 days earlier like it was supposed to be. If I am paying to get it in 2 days, it better show up in 2 days. Of course they always apologize and say there is nothing else they could do.

One other time I placed an order through prime, and after 2 days, the item was still saying that it was being prepared to ship. I had actually needed this particular item as soon as possible so I called them and they told me the 2 days was once the item shipped, I said no, the 2 days should be when I order it because it said the item would be here 2 days later guaranteed. Done with amazon when my prime membership is up in January.

I ordered a Arctic Shield hub style shelter for $15.48 on Amazon, new and unopened.. Clearly a mistake on someones end but I figured worth a try, snatched one up. They have since changed the item to "currently unavailable." But my order did go through, with a "ready to ship" status and an  approximate arrival date. We will see what happens lol.

Did anybody have any luck with their extremely discounted shelters from Amazon yet? I tried my luck and now i have 2 open claims with Amazon about the shelters being supposedly shipped but not received by there expected delivery date.
I guess it was too good to be true. Well, it was worth a try.

I just got my jigs from goicefish.com that I ordered last week. They threw in a few stickers too that will probably make their way to a tackle box lid. Sticker price was $4.99/3 jigs and I paid $0.99 that is 80% off. On first inspection I got 6 different colors in two different sizes that look to be decent quality. The hooks are good and sharp and the eyes are not painted over so I am a happy camper!

Scored a Cabela's cover for my Cabela's sled for $7 in the bargain cave.  Original price was $42.  If I don't like it I'm pretty sure it can be modified to make a cover for my FX100 with some sewing help from my wife.  I figure it was worth a $7 gamble either way.  Really happy to finally find something worth buying in the bargain cave, seems there's never anything in there too exciting.

The site he has listed is the entire suit for $200 not just one piece. I think it's a pretty good deal but my guess is that it's the older suits they had that didn't float.

it says " Striker American Hardware Jacket and Bibs Suit ".
it isn't the hardwater suit. when you read the description, they are talking about the guardian specs. so it must be that version. it does say it floats tho.
"The Guardian Jacket features a 320D Tussor shell"
hardwater suits have 600d.

it is the right price per piece if it were the hardwater suit.

I have had my eye on the xth at l and m supply orginally it was 234.99 about 3 to 4 weeks ago... then  it was gone with in the last two weeks I think they took the price down so they could jack it up a tad.. buy truthfully polar bird shelters are better I think... but if you can get one of the otters for 234.99 then a good deal is a good deal...

ya that a good deal was thinking the cabin went back up in price not the lodge just trying to give warning lol's

Be sure to create an account with Ebates and use them whenever you shop online.  You can even have Ebates embedded into your web browser and the app will tell you how much of a rebate the website offers.  I see some posts about Dick's 20% off.  If you use Ebates, you'll get an extra 1.5% cash back.  I've got an Eskimo HC40 auger in my cart right now.  After the 20% discount, the price went from $450 down to $360.  The Ebates rebate is somewhere around $5.50.

Just used the dicks 20% off and pulled the trigger on the predator bibs for $160.

Keep in mind if you are buying big items, you can also use gift card granny to find a giftcard and save an extra 10-20%

Got to check them all ...subscribe to all the sports stores Emails ...usually Marcum has some dollar amount off ..$50 bucks if I recall during the ice season ...Vexilar are tough to get a deal on ..just count shipping and tax in your math...most have free shipping but be aware some do not....Black Friday and cyber Monday sometimes offer some decent deals .

Be sure to create an account with Ebates and use them whenever you shop online.  You can even have Ebates embedded into your web browser and the app will tell you how much of a rebate the website offers.  I see some posts about Dick's 20% off.  If you use Ebates, you'll get an extra 1.5% cash back.  I've got an Eskimo HC40 auger in my cart right now.  After the 20% discount, the price went from $450 down to $360.  The Ebates rebate is somewhere around $5.50. 
I had a problem with Ebates vs the Dick's club credit card. conversation with Ebates - Ebates vs Dick's master card is a no go at this time. Tried to get Dick's points plus Ebate discount.

Dicks usually has some good deals during black friday or the weeks around black friday. If you subscribe to their mailing list you often get coupon codes for like 10 off 100 or 25 off 200. I think they were better than that last year and I bought two striker suits from them and saved a TON.

Brilliant!  I didn't know about giftcardgranny.  Thank you!  Yesterday, I got 20% off & free shipping off from Dicks, then saved another $40 by getting one of the gift cards from granny.  I got 1% cash back from granny by using Ebates.  I got 1.5% cash back from Dicks by using Ebates.  Bought an Eskimo HC40 propane auger!

Mr. Heater 10' Propane Oil Free Hose  $17.96!  Guys, this is the propane hose that doesn't require the add on filter (#273704).  Gander Mountain had it 33% off in Clearance already and today is having a 10% off and free shipping sale!  Use Code:  VET2016  I got the hose including shipping for $19.04 which included 6% PA tax.  This is a steal for this hose!  Amazon's price has been fluctuating between $26 and $38.  I've been watching these since I got my second Portable Buddy heater for the Polar Bird.

Be advised though, this hose doesn't have the plasticisers that cause the oil leaching issues with other hoses, but without plasticisers,  these hoses get VERY STIFF in cold temps.

On the Ebates website or smartphone app, go to "where's my cash back?"  There will be a record of your online trip to Dicks, as long as you clicked through to Dicks from Ebates.  Give them your Dicks order # and merchandise subtotal.  This should solve the problem.

I took a quick look and thought the same.  Not much for ice deals.  Last week's 20% off at Dicks (for ice fishing gear) looks really good compared to this ad.  Did I miss something, too?  Be sure to visit giftcardgranny.com now!  Sign up for their emails.  By the time next week rolls around, you just might get a special offer from them allowing you to get a discounted gift card at an even greater discount.

I found this camo space heater:  http://www.plowhearth.com/camo-electric-heater-cube.htm

It's $35 for up to 400 sq ft of heating.  It's electric, so not portable, but might fit well in your permanent.  Or, just a decent looking camo space heater for this group of buyers.  I've been looking at this for weeks and finally bought today.  I haven't found a better deal. 

Today, there is free shipping on $75 orders with code GETSETGO.  There are deals almost daily, if you sign up for their emails.

Cabelas had these on sale for around $15 recently so I ordered a M and ML. The only thing I dislike is the fact that the guides get a tad small towards the tip. Other than that they seems like a decent graphite rod to me.

I knew they'd go quickly.  I think people were buying 10 or 20 at a time.  Gift cards are just like cash at the designated store so they can usually be used with any other offers or coupons. 

One trick I use sometimes:  Smith's food and drug has a fuel rewards program.  There are probably similar programs throughout the country...when you buy stuff you earn fuel discounts.  Spend $1000 and you earn $1.00 off per gallon, up to 35 gallons of fuel.  A few times a year they offer 4x points on gift cards.  So $250 worth of cards can save you $35 on fuel.  I buy cards for Amazon or Home Depot for $500-1000 at a time.  The points only last a month or two, but I can usually get at least 3 fillups in before they expire.

What drill do you want? If you don't need batteries or chargers Amazon usually sells bare tools cheap. I bought a bare 1200in lb Milwaukee bare tool to put on my clam plate and took the 725in lb Milwaukee drill off the clam plate so I can use it to crank my wheel house tires up.

Reed's sports has the 13 Fishing Black Betty Teardrop reels on sale for $41.99.  These are usually around $80-100 elsewhere.  You may need to create an account and add to cart in order to see this price.

They also have the Clam Edge parkas 50% off right now. 

Reed's is a good place to keep an eye on.  I like their "get lowest price" program and VIP pricing.

Don't know if this qualifies as a deal. but I ordered a couple puck lights and a straight line reel from FishUSA (sponsor) and got them quickly and they were exactly what I expected.
 
The puck lights are compact, bright and can be hung inside my  portable.
The reel is not too small or too large for my needs and has a pretty good drag for my needs.

Once again, I can't wait to try them out this season!

Also, it's not ice fishing related, but they also have the older 13 fishing Omen Black spinning rods for sale too.  $36 for the 6'10 MXF and 7'1MF.  Great rods for a fantastic price!

I can't wait to try out the wicked ice rods.  I love the white noise rods that i have already.  At this price, you cannot go wrong.

Its good to hear you like the Omen Black.
Which white noise do you have?

I have the Whiteout combo 23.5 UL, and absoulutly love it! No need for a spring bobber. Incredibly sensitive and I really like the short handle. I was happily suprised with the reel (combo) too.

Enjoy that open water while it lasts!

I hear ya.  Ive been using them for a week now.  The 6'10" MLXF feels like it'll be a good trout rod.  The 7'1" MF imo is perfect for walleyes and bass.

What is the difference between the Lake Effect models and the Striker Ice models?

There are many similarities between these styles but there are also differences. Generally speaking, the Striker Ice styles are professional grade containing all available features. The Lake Effect Ice styles have numerous features that are slightly different, including slightly less flotation, snap flap closures instead of magnets, different linings, cut & sew differences, knee pad construction (women's), modifies cuff adjustment systems and other minor features.

That's a good deal.  Profishingsupply had them at that price the last two days also, but back up to retail price today.  I was at a hunting/fishing store yesterday and tried on these suits.  I'm normally an XL jacket, but these Climate suits run small.  I would have bought the 2XL if the price was right.

Thanks. Been waiting for a deal on the Anorakk Sikre flotation suit. $213 after shipping is a good deal, I bought one.

PS. There are two on eBay from H&H in maple lake mn for 150. The red one with grey bibs is the older style bibs. The orange one does not have flotation.  I went there and tried them on. Large was too big for me, I'm 5'9" 170lbs.

I picked up a Striker Lake Effect coat and bibs for 50% off at Gander Mountain. $109.00 a piece, regularly $209.00. At the counter I got a gift card for $20 for spending over $100 and I got another $20 gift card for purchasing apparel. So basically I spent $180 on a $400 suit! I compared it to the Striker Predator suit, which what I originally wanted and can only find 2 differences between the 2. The lake effect has snap closures and no fleece on the beard guard where as the predator has magnetic closure and a fleece covered hood. Other than that they seemed to be identical as far as pockets, construction and material.

But the deal didn't end there!...LOL. I went back to spend my $40 gift cards and purchased a Clam shoulder harness for pulling my flip over and when we got to the counter the girl messed up entering the cards. She put my stuff in a bag and gave me back 1 of my $20 gift cards and told me it was her mistake and that I shouldn't have to wait around for it to be corrected. So I got a $40 harness for $20!

That's what I thought. I read that post a day after it was posted. I found the advertisement but it wouldn't load the page when I clicked it. Assumed it was because they ran out of stock. What a steal of a deal.

What do you guys think of this deal:  https://shop.northlandtackle.com/seasonal-tackle/ice-fishing/kits/northland-ultimate-ice-assorted/

It's a 101 piece ice fishing assortment from Northland Fishing Tackle.  It's 20% off through November 27th, plus another $10 off with code NFTFANS#1, plus free shipping.  I just ordered it.  Total came to about $75.  Doesn't really say what exactly is in the assortment, but I cant imagine anyone would be disappointed by getting 101 pieces for less than $0.75 per piece.  I figured I could pick out what I really want and sell the rest on Facebook or Craigslist.

I just opened the assortment.  Not worth the money, in my opinion.  Buy what you want, piece by piece.  Not sure you'd spend more, per piece, than what you get in here.  Plus, you won't have stuff you don't want.  PM me if you have more questions about what I got.

I'd kill to have the tackle shops you guys have up there.
I drove 28 hours to LOW. My wallet opened up full tilt at two of the 4 shops we stopped at, they had the jigs and spoons made by the guys that live there.
I have the weirdest looking pink jig with gold glitter from that shop and the perch wont leave alone.
My friends ask what it is. All I can say is it was called the pink panther gold and its in Minnesota next to the beer store.

I hit up the 25% off at Dicks for the Marcum flasher for my son.  It showed up Wednesday and I could see the box was sealed with household scotch tape..not a great sign.  Opened it up and there were a few fish scales on the tray, some dried slime on the transducer cable and some pretty deep gouges in the transducer.  Returned it on Friday.  I'll try again at end of season or next cyber Monday.  He gets to use the old B&W lowrance on the homemade stand for another season.

That's f@cked up.....I'd be more than pissed....insulted.  I'm actually shocked they did that.  Good luck.  Dumb question, but were you buying a refurbished one or brand new?  If new, that's sad they did that.  They're usually much better than that.

this is becoming more and more of a problem. it is robbery. that's why places like wally mart checks your id to see if your on the no good list yet or not. best buy is doing it too.

worst problem here tho is no one bothered to check the condition of what was being shipped out first.

New was the only option, I am always leery of refurbished.  It shipped from a store or warehouse in Mass. The look on the young ladies face at the customer service desk was almost worth the hassle when I showed her the scales and slime

Very minimum, they should send you one that isn't messed up. They should also knock something off the price or give you a gift card. Even if it was refurbished it should be clean and free of defects.

I had a similar experience with Dicks Sporting Goods over the summer.  Ordered a Shimano Stradic Ci4+ 3000 on clearance from them.  When I opened up the box I could immediately tell that it was a used reel.  There were scuff marks on the spool and a few places on the reel.  Not to mention it was dis-assembled.  Maybe their definition of clearance meant used.

Shipped it right back the next day and complained to corporate.  They ended up paying me off by giving me extra bonus points for my trouble.  I know it's not the same price as a "new" flasher, but it really pisses me off when you're paying several hundred dollars for an item and you get mailed something used.

I had a bad experience staying at the Memphis bass pro  (pyramid)this summer ,  I won't get into details wrote a scathing letter to corporate
 Ended up getting phone call , a letter of apology and a $250.00 gift card , they cared and thanked me for the heads up
Sometimes corporate needs to hear this kind of thing , and send some pics

Had similar issues with bass pro on a on line order  they would not cancel...  I was bumped to back order status for one by them..  the item said in stock when i ordered it .. for two they used some claim that any thing over $5 they can't cancel... that is when I was going to say fine..  but that's when I discovered the operator at bass pro locked me out of my account tried entering password several times as was denied access to the account found out the only way to get in touch is by phone at that point.. and there still denying it that's when started boycotting bass pro.. so they lost my business cause of this.. last time I shopped there was in 2012 some time almost went to the bank to enter a stop payment well the order shipped and was late for the persons birth day that was envolved.. no biggie .. but still going to boycott them and cabelas now that they own them..

Well the last few posts were in the negative about some shops. So I shall give you a good positive that happened to me yesterday.

Saw Sheels had their Ice fishing flyer online, with a Mr buddy portable heater on sale for 69.99, the closest Sheels is 45 mins or so south of me. Well I called up Sportsmans Warehouse that is much closer to me and asked if they would price match, they said yes. I hopped in my pickup drove over and grabbed one, plus a few more things.... So I finally got me a Mr Buddy heater and can off load my sunflower and not drag a giant propane tank with me...

Sportsmans Guide has Kamik COLD-weather boots for a very good price. And in W I D E sizes.
http://www.sportsmansguide.com/product/index/kamik-nationplus-mens-winter-boots?a=1762303
(They run notoriously small. Some of the listings recommend going up 1- 1.5 sizes 8-)

Use code sh1416...20% off

I just got a pair of these; I ordered sz 10 since I am a 9 and they only come in full sizes. They are just a little loose with regular socks, so should be just right with heavy ones.

make sure you get your item before the 30 day buyer protection plan ends or file a claim for a full refund before then (like a week before the 30 days ends) so time doesn't run out. first file a cancellation, then file for a refund right after.

They had both on sale with the buyers guide free trial. They also have free shipping no minimum! Total for the parka, bibs, and some white mickey's was $177.

I might have to try one of these, a buddy used one in elk camp last fall.  I figured I better give Dicks Sporting a chance to remedy this so i called them today.   I told her I have been waiting for the ice and it is now here and I have nothing to sit on in my new shelter which arrived safely.   They are shipping two chairs via 2nd day air.

not saying this is a smoking deal really but its something. Cabelas has an addition 5% in cabelas points on ion augers plus a $50 credit. So it would depend on which cabelas card you have to determine the percentage back. So the classic card is 3% back normally plus 5%

That same thing happened to me. A month ago.

It's clearly an error.  No reason to be mad about them canceling it.

Usually amazon will honor things like that but if it'd a "3rd party" you are out of luck.

Go to Walmart.com and search for Striker Ice.  They have Guardian jacket and bibs for $199.  These are sold thru Walmart by other companies, similar to third party sales on Amazon.  The Guardian are the model ($159 each piece normally) with less insulation and not as thick outer lining as compared to the Predator, Hardwater or Climate.  But for people in Iowa and other lower states I feel they are totally adequate for warmth if you base layer properly.  They are actually overkill in my insulated shanty, but they float!

Didn't see any bargains on the other models, just a free Striker hat if you pay normal price for the Predator line.

It's in their printed ad.  I realize there's a chance this deal won't be available online but they are advertising this price and there's nothing that says this will be in-store only.  The flyer does say that some deals are only available in stores so I'm hoping that's not the case.  Some of the items in the flyer specifically say "available in stores only" and the Striker bibs do not say that.  It also says colors may vary, so I guess if you order the jacket you might get red, black, or blue on the shoulders.  I can't figure out why they would specify colors varying if this deal were in-store only.  I guess we shall see!

I've re-read a couple times.  Which store is having a sale on Striker gear tomorrow? 25%?
The sale that starts tomorrow is at Sportsman's Warehouse.  $100 off the Striker Nomad bibs or jacket ($179 regular price, $79 sale price).  There's a link in my earlier post.  I checked their current flyer and all the prices listed are valid on the website, so I'm pretty sure these will be available online.  I don't know about shipping charges but there's a special tomorrow on shipping - $5 for 2-day shipping on orders over $100.  The shipping deal ends tomorrow and the deal on Striker bibs goes through the 21st if they last that long.

These are the Lake Effect Nomad bibs and jacket which have the same fabrics, colors, and insulation as the Predator line.  They don't have all the features of the Predator which is why they retail for $20 less (snaps instead of magnetic flap closures, etc.).  Gander Mtn had a similar deal a while ago on the Lake Effect Heat Sink bibs (same fabric and insulation as the Hardwater) and they sold out within a few hours.


All I see on Sportsman's Guide are the Guardian bibs and jacket for $129, regular $159.

http://www.strikerice.com/faqs

What is the difference between the Lake Effect models and the Striker Ice models?

There are many similarities between these styles but there are also differences. Generally speaking, the Striker Ice styles are professional grade containing all available features. The Lake Effect Ice styles have numerous features that are slightly different, including slightly less flotation, snap flap closures instead of magnets, different linings, cut & sew differences, knee pad construction (women's), modifies cuff adjustment systems and other minor features. Refer to the comparison chart for more details.

Plenty of room for layers ....Predator/Nomad ..flag fishing , running n gunning, active ...if you move less , bucket fish or tend to get cold Hardwater/Heat sink is for you ....Climate for best of both worlds .

Sportsman Warehouse Striker

Last night there were some 3XL bibs to order, had one in my cart.  At 6am this morning they were gone....only 2XL, XL and L left.  Darn it!!   I ordered the 2xl and will hold them to do an exchange.  I have some Mossi flotation snowmobile pants I have been wearing, don't have the waterproof knees.

Also ordered a GenieJar from Dicks, $15 free shipping.

Ordered me a set (coat and jacket) for $175 including shipping and taxes. Great deal. Can't pick the jacket color so we'll see what shows up. Anyone know the differences in the Nomad and Predator besides snaps instead of magnets and the towel patches?
I stopped at the store and grabbed some of the Nomad bibs for my brother.  I compared them to the Predator while I was there and here's what I noticed:

Same material is used inside and out.
Nomad uses snaps on the storm flaps instead of magnets (Predator has snaps on the ends and magnets in the middle.  Hip pockets are snaps.)
Predator has a stretchy piece of material in the armpit area.  This is absent in the Nomad.
Predator has fleece lined pockets in the chest area, these are not present in the Nomad.
Both have the same type of adjustment for the hem, and both have the same gaiters inside. 
Predator has one small towel that snaps onto each hip pocket, Nomad has one large towel with a single snap inside one of the hip pockets.
Both feel to be about the same weight overall, same thickness, etc.
Nomad is black, Predator is gray.

That's all I noticed. 

They're also having a special today where you get $50 off orders over $270.  That'll cover shipping and then some if you're ordering a bunch of stuff.  I could not get the $5 shipping for orders over $100 to work this morning so I just went to the store for my bibs. 


Ice Surveyor, they must have started the sale at midnight Mountain Time or something.  I've noticed a few times a sale has ended before midnight, and then I realized I was shopping somewhere on Eastern Time.  I'm in the Mountain time zone and your post says 11:15 pm on the 15th.

My local bait shop has these on clearance for $39.99.  Perfect size case for 3 or 4 combos.  The latches are metal but I think they will gum up if they get any snow/ice in them.  I'm willing to deal with that as this case is perfect in every other way.  Holds rods tight and perfect size.

Don't be afraid to ask a store to do a price match.   I went to a Scheels and asked if they would price match Cabelas 10% off if you charge it to your Cabelas card.   They did, I got a Scheels card in October when I took it out to save $50 on a Marcum camera. So no big deal.   Yesterday I saved $75 on a Marcum LX7 because they matched Cabelas offer of 10% off.  Plus I get triple reward points so I will get another $20 back. 

All these stores are in competition with each other.  The salesman thanked me for giving him the chance to sell the Marcum.  BTW, I love the LX7!

Sportsman Warehouse stiffed me on my Striker Lake Effect bibs that were $179 marked down to $79.   A week after I ordered them they sent me an email saying the order was Cancelled.  They sold more than they had.  Apparently they just take unlimited numbers of orders and then that night the computer checks what they have left after the orders are counted.    They sold more 2xl than what they had.  I am out my order.   I ordered them at 6am on the day they went on sale.   I tried to get the lil puke on the phone to give me a consolation gift card or something.  No way. 

Good thing I happen to go to the store that day and bought a pair.

Frabill pro thermal tip ups are $10 at Dicks Sporting Goods.  Also, free shipping on orders over 25.

They are sold out unless you can find them in stores.. I just tried to price match at Bass pro but the kid actually looked it up to see if they had them even online and called Dicks and they said they didn't lol. Who does that?? I've never had anyone go to that extent. . Normally they just price match bc it didn't actually say they were out on the sicks website. It acted as if they were in stock. He must be trying to get a manager position haha

striker ice is red tagged too, so another 25% off red tags.

Always wanted to try a President. Just ordered one!

i quit buying shimano after buying 2 of their 120$ reels that has the bail shut from long casts and lose my baits. the bail springs were too weak so i quit using them and never bought more of them. i like their bike parts is all now.

The one that's ready to mount on a drill is called the Trekker, which is not available at cabelas right now.  You can buy an adaptor for this one, and use your drill with it.

How about this on the predator jacket is a extra 40%off when you add it to your cart.. plus if you sign up for their e mail before you by it they give a 15% off you first order.. I think the predator jacket is 137.5 with 40% off...  they also have the climate jacket their to 299.99 for lager sizes..with 40% off it is around 180 plus another 15%for fisrg time customers.. here is link to predator... the climage is still avaible...but I think climate is only gray and black I think only best of luck getting what you want..

I appreciate the help guys.  I ended up getting it from Fish307 a few minutes ago.  They had the color and size I wanted and at the best price I could find.  The Hardwater jacket will probably be too warm for me paired with the Hardwater bibs, but I've never cut a day short from being too warm!  I really wanted the heavier duty 600D fabric of the Hardwater over the others.  Shopping for deals, I got the Bibs for $137 and the Jacket for $161, so $298 for the whole suit vs the $458 MSRP.  Not too shabby! 

I think I have a love/hate relationship with this thread.  Spent too much money on ice fishing gear during another warm winter here in Ohio!  ;D

I discovered FISH307.com through ICESHANTY. Before the season started I sent all my auger blades to them for sharpening.They did an excellent job on my blades.
Since then I have purchased a bunch of ice fishing gear from them. I definitely would recommend FISH307.com to all ice fishermen. Right now they are having an ice fishing sale.

A satisfied customer !

I curently use an 8in lazer on my drill setup. Help convince me the nills is that much better when considering the cost and hassle of sending off the blades to be sparpened? Not putting the nills down and have always wanted to try one but the lazer seems to rip well and blades are ez to get and change. Im a lilttle worried about possible sand in the ice around me.

As if I don't have enough rods already....I picked up 2 No. 8 Heatwave 24L combos from Gander Mountain for $8.07 each including tax.  The combo looked and felt ok, the reel isn't really that smooth, and I have no idea how it'll perform.  But for $8 I can use that as a slip bobber rod or have the kids use them.

The price of the rod is higher online than in store.

Have the ice armor extrem mittens there starting to fall apart.. like at the seem stiching is coming undone and the fabric is fraying but they are warm and do better with those chemical bags that you shake up and produce heat.. for $40 I think you can do better.. menards has mittens on sale every once in a while for 4.00 that I think are warmer.. made of synthic fleece to.. just a tip

Ended up buying them - 23.00.  I have all kinds of different gloves/mittens, just thought I'd try these at that price.  I had a chance to try them on earlier in the winter at a Mills Fleet Farm, and they are amazingly warm.  Won't probably use them more than a few times a year, so they should last awhile.

The extra 25% is only for items with prices ending in .92, .94., or .96, so it wouldn't apply to the Hardwater parka, just fyi.  Still plenty of good deals to be had

Are they decent rain gear?   I have been saving reward points for a Bass Pro 100MPH rain jacket ($250) but could use something less if it works.  Price is right.

I just checked that out, that code works. Anyone looking for that jacket is getting one heck of a deal!
BTW!! IT WORKS FOR THE HARDWATER JACKET ALSO----just looked- $111.99, and it may work for other striker products.

I feel like buying a Predator suit just because they're so cheap. Then I can swap between the Hardwater and Predator depending on how cold it is. That is almost good enough reason.  ;D

For you guys with the Climate jacket, does the outer "shell" have any insulation at all or is it just the shell?  Is this combo heavier than the hardwater or predator when zipped together?

 SI uses a 10 point warmth rating scale....  Climate minor insulation rated 4/10 with out liner installed 10/10 with liner installed ...Hardwater 9/10 ...Predator 7/10

I'm in the same boat, got my jacket for 220 on sale and now see these deals.

Buckslayer,
I have the climate jacket and bibs, they do have insulation in the shell and are supposed to float with just the shell. I haven't used the liner in them yet. Been plenty warm without them, bibs I have just pants on under them. Jacket I have a hoodie under it. I got mine so I could use with or without the liner as I tend to be warmer than most. But my plan is if I am fishing alone I can go light and skip the shanty.
So far I really like them, warm, light, lots of pockets and I can kneel in them without getting my knees wet.

climate is 320 denier.
hardwater is 600 denier. that's why i chose hardwater suit. to get the toughest/strongest/longest lasting there is.
Title: Re: Best Ice Deals!! Lets hear em!
Post by: gonehunting on Feb 10, 2017, 06:41 PM
I chose the climate for the versatility of the removable liner.  With the liner in I believe it is rated higher than the Hardwater just by a bit.  The Hardwater is a great jacket for very cold conditions and hole hopping.

Maybe we should start a summertime ice deals thread?  I found brand new Baffin Titans for $48 last summer, hopefully this year I can find a deal on a clam plate.  It might sound crazy, but I do most of my ice shopping in July and August and most of my open water shopping in December and January.  More often than not stores mark down their last year's stock heavily because they want to get it out of the way for the new stuff coming in soon.

I ordered on the 9th. Had to call them today to see why it hasn't been shipped or why my PayPal payment is still pending. They blamed it all on Striker.

I ordered on the 6th.  Climate jacket in black/grey large size.  I then called back after seeing the UTAH code for an additional 20% and tried to cancel that order before it arrived.  they tried but couldn't cancel so I placed a new order using the code.  I received the jacket from the order on the 6th but my order I placed on the 10th is still pending.  Same jacket but the price was $35 less.  looks like I may have to keep my original order.  Glad I didn't return it already.

Not many stores have them in stock, plus gander and overtons are listing the items no longer in stock so a store isn't going to price match. My payment is still pending with overtons but I have not received an email stating that the order has been cancelled. Not expecting much now

yeah that's what I tried to do initially.  I called the CS rep and explained that I had just placed an order but then saw the UTAH code coupon.  I asked them to apply that price to my already placed order.  She put me on hold and then came back and said something like "that's not a code offered on our website so I cant apply that to your order."  As if it wasn't approved by Overtons or something, like it belonged to someone else.  She said that if it worked then go ahead and use it but she couldn't just give me the price difference.  I thought it was a pretty weird concept that a code could give you a discount on YOUR store website but its someone not a code you support and will allow.  IDK

My birthday is around the corner and I showed the Striker Predator coat to my better half as an idea for a gift. My previous Predator coat got stolen with a bunch of my gear so when I seen this for about $100 shipped I was pumped. She ended up ordering it and gave it to me today early. For some reason this one does not seem to be as insulated as my old one, but I obviously dont have it here to compare it to. On the tag it says the item number is 11514 but on thel striker website it says 115100. It also states that its 330d shell and on my tag it says 320. Kind of odd. Im going to gander this weekend and if they have any coats left Im going to compare. If they are different Im going to try to exchange and see if they will let me.

Forgot to mention this was ordered from overtons with the Utah code. Apparently I got lucky and mine actually shipped.

Did they just cancel your bibs? or the jacket and bibs? I still have not heard anything. Pretty sure I'm screwed.

Has anybody been cancelled by Gander yet, or is it just Overtons? As i'm understanding it they run different warehouses with Overtons in NC and Gander in IN.

I ordered an item from Gander a couple of weeks ago that was supposed to ship from the distributor within 3-5 business days. Time elapsed, contacted them twice and was told someone would get back to me. Contacted them again after about two weeks and was told my order was cancelled. Terrible customer service in my opinion. This wasn't a hot deal or anything I was paying normal price for an item in stock (allegedly) that I couldn't find on a large online retailer's website that rhymes with bammyzon.

I ended up with two Grey/Black Striker Climate parkas. Size XL  I purchased the original for $159.99 from Overton's and got a better deal on the second from Overton's.  I would sell the one for $160 plus $15 shipping.  Still a great deal if anyone is interested.  PM me or text 701seven99two58four.  Would consider Paypal or make payment and I ship after payment clears bank.  If this is against Iceshanty forum policy feel free to remove.

Gander Mtn. - I ordered Striker Bibs and Jacket on the $50 off $250 day last week, and same thing that happened to others happened to me, with them cancelling my order Except I finally inquired through the live chat, never got a cancellation email or notice.
So that's it I guess - no rain check, no honoring of price when they come back in stock. I know they might not be there next season, but if they are I would like my order honored.
I find it hard to believe in the digital age of inventory that they "oversold". Just plain bad business practices is what it says to me.

Do you guys ever check ebay for the ice suits? I just bought a striker ice guardian size large from ebay for $99. everywhere else I looked they were $120 and up and a lot of places didn't have a large sized suit. It is brand new, but one of their discontinued red suits. Same suit different color. I was looking around a bit and there are quite a few new suits on there. Ebay and amazon are two of my first stops when shopping.

I have yet to receive an email as well canceling my order, but when I go to my account orders on overtons, it states that I have no orders currently. So they cancelled the order and did not tell me? What in the world. They keep claiming that Striker is the one to blame. How is that possible considering I see shops like Pro Fishing Supply with all Striker suits in stock. If it was shipping from Striker I think we would have received our apparel. Gander and Overtons blew this one

called overtons yesterday and my order status has changed from "with ship vendor" to "item cancelled".  The person on the phone said that doesn't mean my order is cancelled as my order was still listed as in progress but I have a feeling she didn't know what she is talking about.  I ordered on the 10th.  I assume, based off of what others have experienced here, that my order has been cancelled.

I just got off the phone with a Gander customer service rep regarding orders I placed on the 8th for a Striker coat and bibs... I mailed payment and she couldn't find any record of it... don't know if they haven't received it , haven't opened it or just have not entered it into their system. I probably won't ever do business with them ever again with all of the problems others are having receiving their purchases.

I once ordered a GPS for my car from eBay, it arrived in a  Amazon box.  Some genius was listing Amazon merchandise on eBay.  When you bought it from him on eBay he turned around and ordered it from Amazon.  I paid $15 more from him on eBay.  Ever since I check Amazon.  Any more I skip eBay altogether.  Got to Jet.com for peek now too.

the overtons striker ice deal was BS. on the phone with them twice only to find out it was canceled yesterday. never got an email about it. but I still get their ad email almost daily. meanwhile my almost $400 are still on hold in PP and could take 30 days to cancel. with how this is gone I will probably get a gift card for the funds.

Going through something similar with Gander >:(   I ordered a set of Striker bibs and coat over the phone on the 8th and mailed payment.  Their website does not show any orders for me but both customer service reps that I've spoken with can see my orders but they tell me that they be official until someone deposits my m/o and then someone has to enter it into their system before my items will be pulled from the warehouse or were ever. I don't expect them to ship before payment is confirmed but I do expect my items to be pulled and held in the interim. I asked for my order to be cancelled and my m/o returned so would not get a voucher instead but he couldn't even do that.
Earlier today I received an order from one of their competitors that I had mailed payment on the 7th.  They will get future business from me and Gander can go pound sand.

Found lures at all of them, but Walmart had the best deal. Bought the last two Shimano Sienna 500's for clearanced for $21 apiece. I needed one for a rod I had and hated the reel on, and the second reel will force me to buy a new rod!

For you guys that ordered from GM or Overtons,  I did receive a Hardwater jacket that I ordered and here's what I am seeing.
According to the packing list the jacket was shipped directly from Striker, it has the company logo on the slip, my ship to address, and "BILL TO: Overtons", that tells me that Overtons did not have that jacket in stock.
Wondering if Striker didn't use GM and Overtons to reduce inventory for an end of season clearance, Striker may be partly to blame also.

Usually the websites will say, "will ship from vendor in xxx day" when GM/Overtons doesn't have the item on hand. But for some reason, I didn't see that when I ordered another Climate parka. Could be we had some in inventory and were pushing Striker's inventory at the same time and due to some dumb reason, orders where getting mixed up?

For next time and those of you that bought the Striker Stuff at a higher price than Gander/overtons...check your credit card Price Protection benefits.  I bought my Hardwater Jacket from Fish307 and they wouldn't price match Gander, then I remembered the Price Protection.  All I had to do was screenshot Overtons deal, and I ended up getting the difference back from my credit card.  I paid $162 at Fish307 and with the Promo Code at Overtons, it was $112, so I got a check for $50, effectively getting me the coat at $112.

Something to keep in mind for other big-ticket items as well.  The benefit is good for 120 days from purchase date, so if you buy something in-season at full price, you can wait until it clearances out then request the difference back.

Check out sportsmans guide retail store.  All in stock augers (and there were a few) 40% off.  Had a eskimo evo 1 - regular price around $350, 50% off.  Not sure if it was just the floor models or all there remaining stock.  If you're in the area and looking, be a good time to stop.  All ice fishing stuff was on pretty good sales.

Was there on another mission and time was very limited, otherwise I'd have looked all the deals over.

Also sign up for their email specials online.  Get $10 off the top with coupon provided.

Cabelas also had the Vexilar FishPhone camera on sale for $207.99.

I'm gonna try one out seeing how my CFish camera remote control that rotates the lens around is on the blink.   Seems less complicated with the only cable on the FishPhone being the one running underwater to the camera itself, and I like the idea of using iPhone/iPad for viewing.

Try the LX6s for $503 - Amazon or Cabelas.  They are basically same except they are smaller and fit in a 5 gallon pail.   I do not like the fact that my LX7 is too big for a bucket, it required a separate tote.  Which turned out to be ok because I put my camera in it to.  But still, buckets rule!

Trying to talk my son into the LX6s, we share the LX7 now by putting it between our holes.  Works good until you go shallow and the cone gets small.

MARCUM LX-6 DIGITAL SONAR SYSTEM - $399.99 

Just ran across this deal. These must be some 2014 LX-6 leftovers. The 2015-current LX-6s has a slightly smaller footprint and better target separation than the LX-6; 1/2" vs. 3/4" but this is still an awesome unit/buy for someone wanting to go Marcum digital on the cheap. It also appears Marcum is getting out of the analog sonar business (flashers) since all of their current models are being discontinued.  (Please feel free to correct me if I have misstated anything here.)  3300?

Title: Re: Best Ice Deals!! Lets hear em!
Post by: 3300 on Apr 21, 2017, 09:51 PM
nice deal for sure!.

that lx6 has the lx7/9 shuttle and marcum changed the lx6s (the "s" in the model id means shuttle change) shuttle to use the smaller lx5 shuttle and felt the larger shuttle was not needed after all.
i thought the target separation was the same tho. maybe i missed it if they upgraded that on the lx6s.

maybe the poor ice season hurt their sales this season.
Title: Re: Best Ice Deals!! Lets hear em!
Post by: Royalwapiti on Apr 22, 2017, 04:21 PM
Not sure about the target separation.  But the LX6s fitting inside a 5 gallon pail is the deal.  My son bought that, I have the LX7 and have to put it in a tote.  He got the LX6s for $503 earlier this year at ice out in the midwest.

Marcum has a new shuttle coming out next season, supposedly it fits in a 5 gallon bucket, has a built in lithium battery, usb ports, etc....You can buy it separately, but it's much cheaper if you purchase it with a new unit....just something to think about before pulling the trigger on a closeout...

Ok bargain hunters, I'm trying to help keep this awesome thread alive again in the off-season, so here we go!   

Flame King has their propane refill adapter kits and tanks both marked waaay down on Amazon.  The refill adapter and stand are $10.02 off @ $29.97 and the refillable tanks are $7.12 off at $9.97.  I own this little system and it works great!  Huge savings over using disposable 1 lb. tanks and no more heavy bulk tanks and hoses to drag on the ice!!!  These prices are the best I've seen on the kits and tanks.  It takes about 2 minutes to fill a refillable 1 lb tank from your 20 lb bulk tank at home and it fills all of the way up thanks to a bleeder valve you can open and close.  The tanks are good for 12 years!  Your welcome.   ;D

The refillable cylinders are ~ 1/2" longer than the disposable cylinders, so yes, there are some minor compatability issues.  On the Portable Buddy and Little Buddy, there really isn't an issue at all, other than the tank sort of sticks out at an angle from the Portable Buddy.  On the regular Mr. Buddy and larger sizes with two tanks and doors that are supposed to enclose the tanks, the doors won't close without some modifications to the heaters, ie., trimming away some material.  I understand that the Flame King and Mr. Heater companies may be working together toward a resolution.

Been picking up odds and ends at Cabelas bargain cave.  Clam Drill plate marked to $44 was blue tagged to half off. $22.   I didn't read the tag that said parts missing.  LOL, they got last laugh, maybe.  It doesn't have the shaft that sticks through the plate.  Everything else is there.  I have my Nils orange buried in my shanty up on the ceiling of my garage so i cannot check it but it looks like the Nils shaft will go through the hole and fit snug with the bearing.  If not a friend will mill something for me, might cost a 12 pack.  I didn't really want a drill plate (at least for $60.)  But decided it might be nice to keep my Milwaukee drill out of the snow when it sits.

Also on a different trip I picked up a Clam small LED Light bar for $20.   Will fit perfect in my Nanook.  All kinds of jigs and what not but i have plenty of them.

Seriously, all you have to do is ask one of the guys on here who ordered the gearbox for their original shaft.  The gear boxes all came with an integrated shaft.  I'm sure someone will oblige.

Go to that big auction site in fishing/vintage/lures and type in the word  sound  . You will see the sound reflex lures from Sweden. It's an attracting lure 7/8 inches long and 1.4gr that can be worked very slowly and subtly to produce a fluid waving of the wings and clicking sound. The wings have a curve to them that makes them catch water and move at the slightest movement. Add a couple size 0 split rings and a 3-5 inch leader below it. It's a winner.

If 1.4gr is too light, then find those sound reflex lures and search for   myrpirk   under the sellers other listings. Think of the old Ronnie Bird lures. He will sell them individually if asked to do so. Good fishing for every one next season.  :)

30% off ice fishing gear at gander. that makes the lx7 524$ for those thinking about one. some of the gear is on sale plus the 30% off.

i found a lazer 6" auger mis-marked for 59.95 (priced for the blue mora augers). with 30% off made it 41.95. one of the managers was trying to tell me she couldn't mark it down because she scanned it and thier pos said it supposed to be 99.95.
lots of ice rods and combos out and many are on sale with the extra 30% off is a great deal. they are bringing out jigs and plastics and such soon they said.

At first I heard the liquidation sale was only going to last 20 days. last Sunday while at a store in ohio several employees there told me 20 weeks for inventory liquidation. Store  was busy but seemed like most purchases were small stuff. If the 20 weeks is true it will be awhile for real deals to be had.

Watch the final discount real close when checking. I opted not to buy quite a bit of stuff. All electronics is 10% off but the accessories in marine dept although under 20% off header were still only 10 % . The register clerk told me the cash register is the final judge. Regardless where it was displayed or what the banner said.

My original intent to purchase @ 250 dollars  or so. Soon shrank to a mere 70 after the cash register decided too much against me. Wished when they had liquidations like this. They could make it a simple format. The charts they post at the various sales islands mean nothing if you think you getting a 30 % discount. When the final discount the register says nope 10 %. Doesn't anyone operate in a straight forward and truthful manner in this day and age ?

Not as big of a Clam guy as I used to be, but just thought I would pass a bit of info along from their FB page...
...online sale begins this Friday (6-16) and lasts until the following Friday (6-23). Up to 90% off on certain items (sale does not include fish houses)
Apparently they ARE NOT going to do their annual warehouse "Clam Garage Sale", instead, they are doing it online this year making it available to the general public rather than only the people who show up at their warehouse!

Since this thread and Deal Ninjas website? is the main way I have been finding out about great sales this past winter figured I 'd help out with another ice rod deal, instead of posting it to a FB ice fishinggroup.:P

Just saw this ^^^.  If you are referring to the Ice Fishing Deals dot com website, that is not my site.  I do pass on deals that I find to them, that's why you see me mentioned there occasionally.  Other than sharing a friendly deal hunting hobby with them, I am not affiliated with them at all.  The owner of that site does receive some renumeration from purchases on websites that his site directs traffic to.  My deal hunting is strictly for fun and the challenge, and to share great deals I find with my fellow ice fishing enthusiasts.  If I find a great deal, I will always post on Ice Shanty first, especially Amazon deals, where one purchase can immediately blow up the deal.  I just wanted to clarify this so there is no confusion.

I scan roughly twenty websites daily from Amazon to Thorne Bros. and everything in between for deals.  There are tricks you develop over time to quickly search and ferret out deals.  I generally only post ice fishing deals in this site/thread because, well, it's an ice fishing site.  If you have a fishing item in particular you're looking for, even if not ice-fishing related,  I would be more than happy to keep my eyes peeled for you.  Just pm me the VERY specific item(s) you're looking for a deal on, and I'll pm you back if I see something that might interest you.

I wouldn't normally post this in Ice Shanty, but since it's always slow this time of year, hopefully no one will mind...  Right now Glen's Army/Navy   http://www.glensoutdoors.com/fishing/rods/spinning-rods?manufacturer=Fenwick   is having a big sale, but in particular, the higher-end Abu Garcia and Fenwick rods.  Both casting and spinning rods are priced to sell.  Generally speaking, the more expensive the rod, the higher the discount.  For examples, the Abu Garcia Fantasista Regista spinning rods are marked down from $499.95 to $325.99 and the Fenwick World Class Spinning rods are marked down from $299.99 to $205.99.  That's 35% and 30% off respectively.  Those are great deals on top flight rods, maybe not in the same rarefied air as the G. Loomis NRX, but fine, light and very sensitive rods just the same.  Fwiw, the Abu Fantasista Premiers, also $205.99, and Fenwick World Class rods share the same 3M Powerlux 500 blanks.  I have four of the Fenwicks and they are excellent rods.  $206 for either the Fenwick World Class or the Abu Premier is an awesome buy.  There are plenty of decent deals on reels as well.

Happy Deal Hunting!

The price on this has fallen $100 in the last twelve days.  Steal territory now.

Best lead core reel I can think of is diawa sea line with the accudepth close by .. I think the big big sea line and accudepth hold plenty of lead core.. by the way stay away from Penn general pourpose reels mainly the line counter version they tend to be real crappy since they started making them in China.. plus the quality went south but any way the better penn model are not bad... like fathom and warfare but are expensive losest priced reel is around  $100. And quality is way better..

Striker Ice Garage Sale for some other decent bargains.   http://www.strikerstore.com/category-s/107.htm?searching=Y&sort=2&cat=107&show=30&page=1

I just bought my XL son the coat from Thorne Bros and the XL Bibs from Striker.  Less than $260 delivered for a $400.00 suit; not too shabby.  I'm one of the ones who got screwed by the Gander Mountain/Overtons fiasco in the late winter when they let people order suits they couldn't deliver on.  Looks like my boy will have a suit for this winter after all.

I hope a few more here can take advantage.

Thanks for the heads up on the predators at Thorne bros.  I just ordered, great deal!

Javabone, I have bad news and good news.  The bad news is that Thorne Bros. is going to cancel your order because they don't have any left in stock. >:(  The good news is that Scheels is supposed to be getting a shipment of non-current Predators to clearance this fall.  That piece of info came directly from Striker.  Striker updated the Predators for the 2017-2018 season, so all remaining old inventory will be clearanced off.

I gave Thorne Bros. a piece of my mind for advertising items for sale that they didn't have to sell.  I did the the same to Overtons when they did this to me back in February.  Please feel free to eviscerate them yourself as well.  Maybe if enough folks scream at them, these online retailers will stop this irresponsible, aggravating practice.   If it's out of stock, MARK IT 'Out of Stock' damnit!

I'm really sorry about this for you.  My apologies.  I will make a mental note to contact you directly as soon as I can find them AND CONFIRM their availability.  If you'll send me a pm with the size and color you prefer, I'll contact you when I find something.

Yeah, I got the email this morning.  Not the first time I have had trouble with Thorne Bros.  I emailed back thinking maybe it was just the color I ordered and they did not respond.  I ended up calling and was basically told to try back this fall.  Not likely to happen....probably done with Thorne Bros.   I even just got a perch sweetheart from them that I like but oh well, there are other custom shops.

Just an FYI for anyone in my area. Gander mountain in Coldwater Michigan posted today that July 29th will be their closing date. Ice fishing gear is still 70% off and they still have a pretty large selection of tackle.

My store went to 80% today. Put the signs up myself last night. Not a lot left but ice jigs.

I believe they are, but a great deal just the same.  You could build an Fl-22 UltraPack including the Tri-beam ducer and carry bag a la carte for around $400.  A ProPack for even less...

The Widow Maker rods in the same post got down to $22.95 before someone bought one and blew up the deal.  Wish I had needed one...

Well, if you haven't checked out your local Gander mountain location it is getting close to the end.  Stores are closing the 30th here in West MI..  Went to our local store (Grandville, MI) all ice stuff is 90% off and 70% off everything else with the exception of ammo that was 50%.  I was surprised to see still quite a few things left ice related and picked up a few buckshot spoons, puppet minnows, random lindy jigs, a few tungsten, a few random terminal tackle and gulp along with some big lake trolling spoons and reloading goodies for $24 dollars.  I am sad for the few long term employees who stuck it out between the increase competition from Cabelas and other stores, the change over to gun-world and eventually back to Gander and stayed through liquidation.  Many of these people I knew for almost 10-15 years and I hope the best for them.

Nice, love my cleos but we all know that ol man river loves them to as I probably lose  2/3 to snags/bottom each time out lol...  Yeah I also picked up one of the frabill travel covers as they only had a few left it looks a little long but I hope it fits my shappell fx100.  Also an auger extension for my strikemaster power auger in case I ever need one.  Saw the lead making stuff and wish I would of picked some up one as they were gone the last time I came.  I think I am done unless I hear they close out the rest of the non-ice related for more but I still have a bunch of tackle when they liquidated back in 2013 when they changed over to gun world, lol.

I haven't used Cleos since I lived outside of Fennville and you could fish off the south pier in Holland back in the 80's...   But I did catch my first king on one....
I'm sure I have a few trays left that I will never use and you guys are welcome to them for free..

If Doc doesn't want them and you don't need them I will certainly take them.  They are a great bait and work on almost all game fish.  It is a rush to have a early king smash one in the pier, channel or river.  Anything you looking for that you might need? I have a bunch of random tackle still around even though I am starting to thin my inventory a little bit before I end up sleeping in the garage with it all per the wife.. ;)

I agree that is the case in many cases. However, I have gotten augers with non sweeden blades that have held up really well, it would be a craps shoot. I know if you get the cheap bad chinese blades they dull quick. I had an 8in HT shaver with them on. After cutting two holes it was so dull it wouldn't cut.

same here broke a ht Chinese blade in two when driling my four hole.. darn thing snapped in two that's when I decided to cut the ice breaking bars off mine.. and see if it's was easier with new blades kept the new blade threw them on my 8 inch laser and the dull chineses set on the ht and gave it to some one I know..  and gave the 8 inch laser to my brother after buying a 8 inch  nils and 3 heads for it.. then tossed the nils in a corner and started using a 7 inch mora with offset handLe converted to a laser auger. Drills like a nils just don't cost so much the laser does..

As my local Gander Mountain has been going down . I have picked up a few deals here and there. Now about 6 days left. Yesterday picked up two fish 13 widow maker rods in the 24 inch ultralight models @ 14.00 each. Those were the last two fish 13 ice rods in the store. Wife got an exercise tracker watch for super cheap. She was tickled and kept chortling about the 110 she saved.

Although really don't need anything. Probably will venture back next to last day.

Yeah that was on the 6920 size earlier today. Looks like they are down to just the 6930. Sorry I was a little slow posting. Looks like the new model is on there so I bet they clearances out the old one. Keep your eyes open on other sites.

Bummer! Wish I would have caught the deal on the 6920, been watching it on amazon and it's still at $46...

This auger at link or a nils?seen a 6 inch nils on ebay for 80+24 shipping 104 aprox cost.. but will probllay need sharpening wich is around 20-30 my suggestion is to get the eskimo silver tip or get a laser 6 inch then see if you can locate a off set handle?? Like a mora boren with a off set handle? And use it on the laser or eskimo.. augers or convert a mora boren mora with off set handle to use laser blades?? But best bet for now would be. Laser or eskimo silver tip..

Not for ice fishing, but if you're a waterfowler, Black Cloud steel shot has a $7.50 per box rebate going on right now.  Minimum 5 box purchase.  I picked up 5 boxes last week at cabelas for $19 a box (on sale), after rebate, comes to $11.50 per box.  Actually a reasonable price for good steel shot.

just picked up 10 boxes for $89.  I bought gift cards on raise which saved me $24 and then with the rebate brings it down to $89 total.  $8.90 a box is a great price for these shells.  Thanks for posting!

I bought a basspro shops brand auger but the bolt that connects the two pieces snapped and the blades are dull from general use, and it is 8 inch and I would rather have 6. As far as I can tell Basspro sells no replacement parts for it. But it's only $50 new so it's not worth it anyway.

I have been looking on Craigslist but I want to make sure what I get is a model that has replacement blades. Which shouldn't be too hard.
I prefer the mushroom style handle but it's not a big deal.

Most strike master products use good metal to make it ... now go to stuff like ht brand polar fire auger  there made in China and the metal is junk compared to ours or any Sweden products .. seems there useing more tin in the steel coming from China wich causes a lot of defective products. .  Like the bent handle I got on my ht brand auger.. or other broken blades etc like on my ht auger.. also seems that strike master uses better quality piece in their products..  so getting a auger on craigs list should be easy  cause so many people resell the mora cause they last and are made better then say others .. heard a few people on here recomend the eskimo augers I have no clue it they are as good as a stike master.. I am sure others can chime in on this .. I know nils auger are good but very expensive to use so getting a good deal on them is crusial to your want of the auger.. I got the older mora boren auger on e bay it is basically a mora with off set handle I then converted the blades to a laser style blade curved versus a flat or brace bit style ..  you can buy the t-bolt for your auger at fishusa.com and fish307.com they carry a strike master t-bolt..  that will fit most augers.. most augers use same hard ware and same blades as stike msster same threads etc on the t-bolt too.. weather curved or flat as mora and laser  strike master must have cornered the market cause every one buys from them for parts etc..

Exactly thumbs up on this point if you need new blades I may have some will have to look are they curved or flat if there the flat style I may have a set you can get sharpened for like $3 some places or use a file to sharpen them like most do.. let me know I could always ship them to you for free would not charge you for them either I don't use the 8 as much as my 7 inch.. so pm me if you could use them??I belive there mora of sweeden blades.. I also got 3 or 4 others sets  that are 7 inch size.. mora blades

You're calculating volume (cubic feet) not area (square feet).  If your shack is by 80" wide by 160" long it's about 89 sq ft.

I know for the sake will say that the people at Mr heater screwed up in thier labeling of their product..   is why I said that..  I have taken the hvac program at a local college it cuft you use to calculate the furnace for the residence..  their packed says covered sqft when you need cubic feet..  ya the big buddy was a tad light on heat last year when I used it so no biggie..

This is how we calculate our furance calculations seen at link we can also break it down in to r-values for individual walls windows cellings roofs floors like ceramic and concrete etc.. r value is the resistance value of removing heat from a room.. given to products..  like insulation like r-9 threw r-22 etc.. we even have values as low as r-1..

I feel like I'm letting my bargain hunting shanty peeps down.  Deals have been really scarce, but here's one that's pretty sweet.  Reed's has the Otter XTH Cabin Hub on sale for $234.00 ($65 off msrp) and FREE shipping.   This is a high quality insulated hub for 1 to 2 anglers even though Otter says 2 to 3.  More than two with gear would be really crowded.

Setup: 75" H x 78.5" W (Hub-to-Hub)
Bottom: 72" x 72"

Alright, this is a pretty lame deal, but if anyone needs a new travel cover for their Otter Lodge, here you go.  $13.40 or almost 80% off of reg. $64.99.  Great deal IF you need one.  I bought my cover and hyfax the same time I bought my Lodge, but some guys who have older ones may need a replacement.  Worth putting it out here.

I may be wrong but wasn't there a post about a "safety recall" on those Flame King refillable 1lb tanks sometime this last winter?  Just an FYI

No, you're correct gh.  That was my post.  I have inspected all of my tanks and they are not part of the recall.  Mine were all manufactured after the affected tanks.  I will still keep a close eye on them though. lol. So far they're working perfectly.

They price match the item but not all of the discounts on the gift cards. I would much rather buy from Scheels over Cabela’s but they do not offer  gift cards near as liberally as Cabela’s does. Kind of dumb on Scheels part if you ask me. I spent $7000 at Cabela’s over the summer because of it.

Three crafts men is carried by ace do it your self hard ware sumit racing etc.. were if lowes or hone depot was to go under the husky band goes with same with kobalt .. and harbor freight we all know is real junk..  but if looking for tools to assemble your newly bought ice gear look at sears and crafts men for some awesome Deals right now!!  Just checked my email two week ago and found I had $40  in free money for tools form shop your way rewards.. bought a $250 top tool chest only paid $210 worth over $400  just givein tool guys a heads up.. to bad thier drill are not like millwaukee fuel or that would be a no brainer lol's..  the craftsmen drill are a little less powerfull and won't turn a auger that well.. might be worth looking to see if they got a millwaukee fuel just a heads up to..

Thank you. My daughter is getting old enough to go out on the ice with me, so I was pondering purchasing a hub. This should do the trick and for the price I couldn't pass it up. Fish USA's shipping is great, received it the next day. Hopefully we'll have good ice early this year. Until then it will be her clubhouse. Thanks again.

Has anyone seen any deals on a marcum flasher, specifically a vx1i

Go to https://www.upnorthsports.com/
They were offering me 20% off the VX-1i, LX-3TCI and the LX-5 on Thursday.  It’s not an advertised clearance.  Get on their live chat and see what they’ll do for you.  Tell them a little bird told you about the 20% off. ;). These items are discontinued so there may be better offerings out there.

Baffin Men's Shackleton in SIZE 10 ONLY.  $105-$115  Smoking HOT Deal!  I've been watching these boots slide for a couple of weeks. They normally run $180-$210. These would be good for someone who wears a size 9-9.5 shoe as they tend to run a little small.  It's an Amazon deal, so if you want 'em, grab 'em FAST!  They won't last long at these prices.

I ordered one right before the end of last ice season so I couldn't really tell you how warm they are on cold days as I only made it out with this suit one time and the temps were right around freezing temps(32 degs.) and I was getting hot wearing the jacket. I think it will be warm enough on colder days though because I was warm enough with just the bibs on after I took the jacket off while fishing outside that day. I will say that it might not be as comfortable to wear as the other floatation suits as it feels like you are wearing basically a winter jacket with a life vest sewn inside of it. There is a buckle on the front for you to snug it down on your body much like that on some life vests.

I have the jacket but only was able to wear it once.  They are stiff when cold, it is like wearing a 1/2 inch of foam sewn into a coat. Also note that the jacket is the only thing certified as a PFD, you do not need the bibs from what I have read.  I only plan to wear the coat while traveling on ice other then that I sit in the shack but layer so Im not cold without the jacket

The listing is probably just screwed up.  It happens all the time, but I’ll send the seller a note asking for clarification.  They have 97% positive feedback.  It’s not likely they’d try to ruin that.  Half of everything Reeds is selling right now in Ice Fishing is called an Eskimo Quickfish. LOL  I’ll post back their response(assuming I receive one).

Edit to Add:  Message sent to seller, 2782 Sales, regarding product details for ASIN#B017RAN84A.

“Hello 2782 Sales. You are selling a Milwaukee 2704-22 M18 Fuel 1/2" Hammer Drill/Driver Kit. ASIN #B017RAN84A. The product details are misleading or wrong. Is this a complete, genuine Milwaukee 2704-22 kit that INCLUDES the case, drill, two 5ah batteries, side handle and charger? Thank you, Mark”

Type in TAKE40 where it says to enter in the coupon code during checkout. I just tried it to see if it would take off $40 and it did. I bought something last week for a $30 saving so, unfortunately, I'm not able to save another $10 as I already made my big purchase.

The Sportsman's Guide just had a sweet deal on these New Helix 7 Ice G2 units when members bought them on there member “double discount promo” There normal price for members was $539 before the double discount, but under the double discount promo they were 20% off which brought them down to $480 + shipping for the Helix 7 Ice G2 Unit, that’s a pretty good deal! They do offer the double discount pretty regularly, just thought some people might like to know.

You’ll get 20% here and there at other places(Dick’s), but not often 25% unless you wait until season’s end.  You’ll likely wait until Black Friday for a similar deal before the season.  Look at Striker’s sizing guide.  It’s a good one.  If you have an experienced belly, maybe one size larger. ;D

any idea how often would these 25% off clothing flash sale come around at fishusa ? Thinking about striker float suit but would really like to try the clothing in in a store first. Closest store that will carry them hasn't got them in yet.

DN  makes a good point I reviewed last years/2016 sales on this thread ....really didn't see much concerning FishUSA ...Could of missed but if I recall they didn't offer much other that some free clothing swag...after a certain dollar amount ....could always buy two sizes and ship one back.

return policy is pretty good
