Hardwater diehard thank you for posting the link to Clam's new for 2020-2021 products. It would have been nice if they included  prices . Depending on price might buy a couple of the Tikka jigs to compare againest Rappala's jigging raps and Custom Jigs-n- Spins rotating power minnow.
Monticageek looking forward to your post on Clam's new offerings for this upcoming ice fishing season.

as of now most things have showed up on time and there will be a chance that retailers will be putting out ice fishing stuff sooner then later but will be up to the individual retailers as to when they set their ice fishing stuff out. Heard today that Scheels in Fargo, ND is suppose to have ice fishing stuff out already. just a heads up if anyone is interested in the 40th anniversary houses get them right away because once they sell out they will not be no more offered.

Biggest thing I am looking forward to is the gold line. I was give a sample test spool to try out last season  and I really liked it. It will be my main line on all my rods this year.

Just got word that the Clam website with all the new products will go live to the public at 9:30am CST this morning.
Monticatgeek, what is the metal rail for on the hub shelf? It doesn't really say on Clams website. I thought it was a magnet at first while looking at it on my phone earlier, but now that I can get a bit of a closer look, it looks a little like the t-bolt tracks used for mounting things on kayaks.

that is a magnet. you can put jig hooks on it to hold them and then you also have the two small round holes in front of that where you could put like a small forceps for removing hooks or if they are too big to fit in one of those two hole you can use the longer oblong one. then of course you have the large cup/hole for holding a drink or this is where you could set a cell phone in too. these along with the hub rattle reels and rod holders are going to take fishing out of a hub to the next leave. I will be personally adding this stuff to one of my hubs if not all of them this year.

I like that they sell the mounting discs separate so you can say mount a few in different places and move whatever you are using to suit your needs.
Here is another company that has some interesting things...

Looks like Akara has some new ice rods. They look to be in the mold of a palm rod or maybe a schooley setup:

Looking through the rest of their catalog, looks like they have some new lures as well.

Beat me to the punch, was just coming to post about this. In addition to the new sonar unit, Marcum also has a full fleet of LIFEPO4 lithium batteries now as well:

Checked into that Marcum link and noticed the Pursuit.  Saw that they had a cable reel system.  Asked if there is the chance that it would fit on the Recon system and they said no.  They said that there is a 1/4-20 stud on it, and the recon has a threaded hole for 1/4-20 - so not sure why it wouldn't work, or could be rigged. 

That is my one complaint about these - really wish they had the reel system.  I may have to look into the threads to find the one where someone here came up with a work around.

You can make or buy a 1/4" 20 stud ..or bolt or threaded rod ..

Thanks. That looks very interesting.   They have a few new lithium batteries and the Marcum LX7 comes with Lithium now too.

Just hope they learned from the botched roll out of the RT-9 ..

The way I see it:

The reel already comes with the stud, and the recon already has the threaded hole, so its just the reel system that we would need.  So sitting here thinking - do you need to be concerned about the end of the cable being twisted.  Am I over thinking this?
