  1. Yep, same thing for me
  2. I know all about those explorers, have an 02 exploder. Between me and the original owner, it must have had every imaginable problem. I thought the 4.6L motors were pretty reliable, but I blew one up. Now the transmission is starting to go. Looking to grab a new Ram shortly.
  3. Thanks for the update, was curious how ice was coming along in that area
  4. I just trim up a bit on my impact and then my port side readings are clear. Only using sidescan at low speeds anyways.
  5. Oh, I'm talking about the jigging base addon, lol. I have a jaw jacker unit that was 40. Haven't used it much though.
  6. Didn't want to start a new post, anyone ever get to use one of these? Seen they were on sale at Cabelas this weekend. Now 100, still expensive. Thinking it could be decent for a second line set up... Maybe..
  7. I thought it be cool to use, but I icefish mainly for lakers. Not sure if its even usable that deep, in terms of visibility.
  8. Never attended before, any deals to be had on ice huts?
  9. I think i will just go with rubber/neoprene boots as you stated. Cabelas has some Mucks on sale. They are cheaper than gore tex shoes or hikers. And don't seem to bad in terms of bulkiness. Just not sure if an insulated pair will be too warm for the fall (Oct/Nov fishing). The worst thing is when your feet start to sweat. Or on the durability, seem to be a fair amount of complaints on them.
  10. Add stabil, ive never run anything dry of gas and have had zero issues.
  11. After fishing a few fall days in the rain this year, I'm looking for a recommendation on boots/shoes for the fall/early spring season. I do own a pair of Baffin Titans that I use for the winter but I feel they are way too bulky, and not ideal for controlling the trolling motor on the bow, i always use the pedal. I do use a Bass Pro Pro Qualifier gore tex rain gear set, currently with a pair of running shoes lol. So I almost stay perfectly dry. Debating on whether to go for a pair of Muck boots, or gore tex shoes. I kind of like the idea of the Mucks as they seem to serve a bigger purpose and can be used in a variety of conditions. What does everyone else use?
  12. Agreed. If not out early morning in July and August, it gets hectic.
  13. I am a fan of 2500/3000 size reels. Less line twist issues. And in most cases on the rods I am using, have better balance and feel. I always recommend the Daiwa BG to friends, they love them. And so far have held up. Although, this reel doesn't have that nice air bail. Need to move up a model. Shimano makes great reels, i have a few Vanquish C3000's. I am a fan of Daiwa's though as i love the airbail. Not a fan of the thin bails, for whatever reason lol. But if you don't mind em, the Stradic is a great reel. A bit over your budget though. The pflueger president is a good option on a budget. That's what I buy for my Dad, he doesn't take care of any gear and most are almost ten years old and still kicking.
  14. I like the look of the Lowrance Ghost, no 60" shaft though at release. My Ultrex will have to do for now. But it will be great to finally have a motor (not motorguide) that pairs with my Lowrance finders.
  15. I was out on Sunday, didnt see any bass on nests still. Was a tough day as well to
