Same here. Those new jigs will catch me before they catch fish.

Technically, my latest purchase was some chicken fingers from Raising Canes. However, my latest ice fishing related purchase was a Milwaukee Fuel M18. I'm going to hook that onto my 6" finbore. I'm thinking it should be able to dominate the ice! Can't wait to try it out.

Milwaukee M18 Fuel for my Lazer and another TUCR Precision Noodle.

To add this: 15 more Fiskas tungsten jigs (I have about 50) and a Baby Bug Luggage box to put my collection in.

Well its hard to say latest but this is the list I've been building on most the summer to get ready for this next ice season

Milwaukee drill kit 2704-22
Milwaukee 9.0ah battery & quick charger for the long weekends
28" Widow maker deadstick med. action evolve handle paired with a Pflueger 6920 president reel
8" Nils convertible auger on order yesterday from cabelas, should ship by the end of the month
Built a new rack for the snowmobile to carry my auger/poles/lx-7
Scorcher ice scratchers to keep the sled cool on the hard pack
Neos stabilicer over boots for the quick trip days
New buddy heater and storage bag to replace the one I blew up last year on a long haul out of the high country here
2 packs of 6lb Trilene micro ice line
Snowmobile tow strap/tool bag combo
Frabill ice shelter jacket hangers
Frabil task gloves
2 snappers from automatic fisherman with a free 27" rod

I still have a few things I'm waiting for the right price on, but believe it or not I just added it up and I'm right at about $700 for whats on the list so far. Dont tell the wife!!!! I have been doing alot of scouring around thru amazon warehouse/cabelas bargain cave/icefishingdeals.com & local classifieds around here and feel I've done fairly well. Some of this equipment was an upgrade which takes my total out of pocket down a few more $'s, only have a few more things left to sell

At first, I thought I hadn't purchased much, but after thinking about it some more, I remembered:

Some Cabela's Inferno boots for my wife.  Great price on sale and using points made them nearly free, and no problem with "don't tell my wife!"   @) ;D
Five new Mitchell 310 reels, which may not actually become available for use until Christmas.
Some hole covers for super cold days and our overnight trip.
Two additional LED lanterns for use in the hub shelter.

Shopping for new bibs and jacket for my wife.  Yes, she knows.  :)
Probably get an aqua-vu camera upgrade soon.
Looking at a new snowmobile trailer.
Still eyeing that Eskimo 9416i.

Personally I would return the cabelas inferno boots if you can. I used a pair for 1 season and they didn't help keep my feet warm. The would get pretty cold especially when sitting on a bucket for a long period of time. I'm much happier with the boots I have now. No more cold feet.

If its warm like 20 degrees, I wear my felt pacs. When it gets colder I wear my mickey mouse (old army surplus) boots. I bought them new for $40 17 years ago and have never had cold feet.   Draw back, they weight about 20 pounds a piece...but they do work well for standing around on the ice.
I bought:
2 new small heavy action ugly sticks, new reels, new line, a new fish grabber for help landing fish,  a new self inflating life vest for early and late ice conditions, new auger teeth, $30 in new tube jigs, and five pounds of AA and AAA batteries for all the gizmo's.  I did thrift store bargain up a very nice heavy coat for fishing $3. a new gear bag from ugly stick, it's pretty cool, a better old dependable ice fishing 4X4 to get me there and back and two cans of black spray paint for the old smitty sled (gen 4). Still need another wool sweater and thin wool gloves.

Cabela's had some of the Northland glo spoons in everyone is talking about...so, I had to grab a couple.  As another person said, I hope these aren't as useless as the perch/wally talker were that I bought a couple years ago.

Ok so I  thought I was done for a minute but last night I picked up another 6920 president in the amazon warehouse for $22. I also finished up my prototype sled rack with a new box and rod rack

Baffin impacts. This is going to be my 2nd or 3rd year with them. Couldn't be happier with the boots.

I always seem to miss out on these deals by one day! Nice grab!
Was planning on picking up the 6920 this winter but I found a pfleuger UL combo in the basement this weekend that I didn't know I had so I won't need to buy one now. If I see one for $22 I definitely won't be passing it up though!
