New heater and propane tank for the new ice house. A few new tip ups maybe. New Auger?  And whatever else comes up.

I think I have everything under the sun, including those light strands that go across the hut. Maybe this should be the year to update my jacket and bibs. Who thinks they know of the betst type and brand of ice fishing clothes. I'm all earmuffs.

I use a Stearns I570 Lite 1 piece anti exposure (floatation) suit for the cold stuff.  Wind proof, water proof, and very warm.  Plus it will keep you afloat if you go through!

I have been wanting to try my vex out so much that I took it out in a padle boat a few weeks back (put it in the empy passenger seat). I found a nice spot and just parked and droped er' over the side. Worked great It was a lot of fun watching that lure fall...not to mnetion the fish rise.....

Rico, I bought a new pair of Mickey Mouse boots (military boots) last year. I love em, never had cold feet. I bought a new pair of black ones at G.I. Joes in Ft. Wayne for $99. Good luck  Hope to meet you and some of the other guys on the hard water this season.   Steve ::) ::)

Rico, Colemans.com is a great place to buy Mickey Mouse boots. I gave 40 something
about 2 years ago for them. GI JOES, on the other hand has for much more. I try to get the best deal. If this means buying off the net and not local so be it.
Later Greg
Fish on!
