Today I picked up some shrimpo's,a few more nucular ants,3 jigging rapala's,and a chubby darter and 2 more 28 inch poles.oh yeah some 2lb test..This stuff keeps adding up.Looked at a fl 18 too plus all the new ice shelters they are getting sweeter by the year.
Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an  well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, A fishing pole in one hand, beer in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming \"WOO HOO, what a ride!

This was a good year for new stuff!

I sold my old shack at a rummage sale this summer, so I picked up the the new Ranger Solo, and I love it!

Then I just placed an order with Fish307.com for the extra seat, accessory table, and the new FL-18 ultra pack and now I can't wait for the man in brown to get here.  

I also picked up the new motorized tripod for the aqua-vu.

I wish I could order some decent Ice!

I aint spent no money but I got ice so its a decent trade.
 
Well, Frabill triplex, new vex battery, 2 pinnacle reels, forage minnow spoons, hand auger blades, cleats, chubby darters, and a bunch of hali dropper chains for different perch lures. So maybe i spent a little money.
Every plastics manufacturer claims plastics outfish livebait. So now I use livebait just for the increased challenge.

I was going through my stuff and I can't believe I'm going to say this ...but...I don't think I need anything.

Well, I am getting that Nils Master cutter head for my Fin Bor auger...

I am missing some of my favorite jigs I guess I'll have to replace them...

I should buy some new spools of line...

There's that seat I was looking at for my fish trap...

Where's my wallet...I'll be back later.

Got some brand new Laker Tip Ups, 5 new Greenie Tip-Ups and braided line  from a guy having a yard sale. His dad owned a tackle shop and retired thus leaving the son with all the loot. Got 5 Laker Tip-Ups for the price of one. What a sweet deal. Got probably 1000 yards of line at over half off. Dont find deals like this every day but it sure makes you feel good when you do. My only regret is not buying more.
Looking forward to getting my SHAPPELL DX3000 Sometime within the next two weeks. Gotta wait for the inlaws to come bearing presents ha ha. Hope everyone is having a great time and keep them lines tight.

A new Fishtrap Guide, just got done making tow bars for towing with the sled, and putting aluminum runners on the bottom.
I need to upgrade the auger, its a very old Jiffy 30 10" and very heavy, but is very dependable. I might just get a 8" for it.

Well, I assembled my new Otter Magnum Lodge on turkey day, and gave my new insulated guide wear a good test on Little Bay de Noc this weekend.  I upgraded my tackle boxes to the new Plano guide series stuff, and packed them full of some pretty new lures.  I am going to the show next weekend to hopefully secure a rockin reel, and a Thorne Bros. sweetheart.  Unfortunately due to work and family obligations I won't be on the hard stuff until January.

Ive been very happy with my FishTrap Scout. Lightweight, the  rod hammock is nice too, heats up fast, and tows well. They made a few more improvements this year including a seat that lifts sideways to acsess the rod hammock easier,and also include a pole to hold the trap half open. They always improve things after you buy them, go figure!

Only bought a few odds and ends.  I hit a Bass Pro 1/2 off sale a couple years ago and really loaded up on stuff then.  This year I only bought a bunch of 3# line for my rods and some perch eye jigs.  May get some Genz jigs yet too and will look for rods once I see sales.  I bought 2 Frabill sensive rods last year so I am okay there yet too.

Geez , i must be in the wrong line of work compared to icefishinfool and FishDeepCreek to afford all that at 1 time. And here i thought i wasn't doing too bad getting a few new jigs, a set of new blades , 1 new rod combo

It feels like Christmas eve.   :D

I just got the tracking info on the stuff I ordered from Fish307, and now I hope that the Ice I ordered gets here before the "Man In Brown" does!

Bought a mustang survival suit and can't wait to try it.  For a one man shanty I have a otter den and love it except you can't stand up all the way in it, but it is extremely light and super quick to set up.  good luck jeff

Bought a new JiffY gas auger this past summer.  I bought a new shelter at the end of the year last year and have not used it yet and I bought a new Jet Sled.  I am ready, bring it on.
Bring on the ice!!!!!!!  <br />

Nothing brand new, but I just got 5 vintage tipups on ebay lastweek. They are old but they are in great shape. They have a secondary flag on them that actuates every time the spool comes around, after the primary flag has tripped. I guess to let you know if the fish is running or if its a wind flag. Never seen that before, but Im only a rookie. Learn something every day I guess. Cant wait for ice so I can try them out.

Picked up some new jigs,(lots of luminous glow stuff) and a set of blades for my 7'' auger. Made the mistake of trying to replace them mid-season last year; never again! Come on ice!

Just got a Humminbird "Bird Trap" flasher for nine dollars on EBay. I guess there are still a few good deals to be found.

Yeah. Ebay is getting pretty bad. Arent hardly any deals left. Only time you get one is on a misprint. Most of the items are as much if not more than retail, but people still bid and think they are getting a deal.

Went to the St. Paul Ice Fishing show on Saturday. Bought a mess of jigs from Ivan's.

There are a mess of portable shack offerings nowadays. A lot of options in augers also.
