I did that this year as well and my wife has commented on it has only held beer thus far!  I'll have to grab a dozen waxies to keep in there for looks!

For ice fishing I didn't buy anything...yet!?!
If only God would come down in the form of a man and explain everything to us.

I know a Guy who walked on water and it wasn't frozen.

Look at where Jesus went to pick people. He didnít go to collegesÖ he got guys off the fishing docks.

Did not buy, but built this to get to and from with little effort.







And a bit of extra juice when needed.

Ordered one of the new 13 Fishing Widow Maker 27" SUL, looking forward to getting my hands on it when it arrives today. Going to pair it up with one of the new President in-lines that arrived last week.

Strikemaster 24V Lithium 8" and the Strikemaster insulated bait bucket.  No more hauling the 44 lb Jiffy Pro4, and no more frozen minnows after an hour in a regular foam bucket.

I buy way to much ice gear, but I am ok with that lol.  I just picked up 2 jaw jackers and 2 rods to dedicate to them.  Then I picked up 2 36 inch medium action to pair with the okuma abf 500s that I bought last year to dedicate to DIY I-fish-pro tip-ups.  Trying to convince the wife why I need a panoptix but I that [email protected]% isn't gonna happen. Lol.  Cant fault a man for trying.

Kautz, two questions:  First, what method are you using to catch the chubs?  I have been striking out last two years using cone traps in the local creeks, but I am trying when it is much colder, like January.
Second question:  How will you keep them alive for the next few months until ice forms?  What will you feed them?
Thanks.  Always looking for tips from knowledgeable anglers.

At the price of them. We would need ice 8 months a year. To justify that purchase  ;)2

I'm still not sure that would justify it, Capt!  ::)

I was thinking something like.................. ....................wh en you sink your ATV in Lake Wallenpaupack, it would help you find it so you could pull it out and avoid the $1000/day fine from the State!  ;)

Carpboy i catch them the second or third week october if you go any later you will really struggle to find them in numbers. I use 1/200th trout mini magnet with a small piece of worm from a ultra light pole this is the best way to catch those 3-4.5in ones i'm looking for. I keep them in a 250 rubbermaid stock tank with a pond aerator pump and a homemade spray bar. clean the filter every two weeks and every couple days give em some goldfish food. I use them from kayak in the river from December till we get ice on it. Best river bait hands down!!!
