  1. Good to know. Will keep that in mind for the future.
  2. Thats good to hear. I took a chance and ordered. We shall see what happens. Thanks!
  3. Has anyone ordered from Bass Pro/Cabelas USA before? Trying to source an Lowrance Active Target, noticed most places here are sold out, have waiting lists or dont have concrete dates of when they are expected to come in. BPS down south has had a few pop up every other day ready to ship. In the checkout process, because of the amount, 3.50 in brokerage fees are included in the free shipping. They charge HST upfront, product is made in Mexico, so I dont expect duties. Just worried that I will be hit with some other outrageous fees. Usually order my gear from Tackle Warehouse which ship UPS World Wide Saver, all costs shown. No hidden surprises. But worried with the BPS purchase haha.
  4. I may hit GBay tomorrow and cast some Shadzilla's. Definitely feels unproductive heading out here, but you always have a chance of big one. Struck out on Pigeon the other week.
  5. Be careful with the Garmin Motor, the Force, the 57" shaft is more like a 52". So if you fish windy conditions, not the greatest. Ultrex 60" is also a bad design. If the shaft is deeper than, lets say 54", it cant stow. Always have to re adjust. Not sure who designed these things. Sold mine to get the Ghost but covid delayed that. Im hoping the Ghost 60" turns out to be ok. Its what I am personally waiting for. But I run Lowrance units.
  6. My Mercury group 27 battery constantly had issues when running multiple finders, nmea network, livewell, radio. If i didnt make long enough runs during say an 8 hour fishing trip. The battery towards mid/end of day would always end up dead. Switched to a Northstar Group 31 AGM, have been problem free for years now. Im actually surprised some are running Group 24's with all listed. For reference purposss, i have an Optimax, which requires high CCA and tends to be finicky.
  7. 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.
  8. Thanks for the update, was curious how ice was coming along in that area
  9. I just trim up a bit on my impact and then my port side readings are clear. Only using sidescan at low speeds anyways.
  10. 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.
  11. 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..
  12. 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.
  13. Never attended before, any deals to be had on ice huts?
  14. 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.
