  1. I know one reason I'm tying hair on Tungsten is because they are going to state where lead is banned from fishing tackle. It looks more and more like lead tackle has a limited future. There has been several attempts already in MN. Maybe not in the next four years, but over the long haul. Also see an advantage when fall bobber fishing for roaming schools. There is also the size factor as Rush says.
  2. Those look great Rex.
  3. Has there ever been a fisherman who was not interested in more tackle? I for one would accept more. In fact, great idea Rex. I would be willing to donate some jigs as well.
  4. Merry Christmas to you and your family Tom.

      A Very Merry Christmas to you and your family Jack. 

  5. For anyone thinking of ordering the GenieJar, I found a great deal on them. Fishusa has the 30 oz jar for $17.99. So I ordered one.
  6. Following this. Interested in finding out if the 17 oz. is big enough or if one should purchase the 30 oz. Looks like you could only transport 1/2 doz minnows for any length of time. Looking forward to reviews.
  7. Very nice. Found a new one for my signature=
  8. For those interested, I now have ready to paint and/or tie in your favorite colors a batch of 75 CK imitation jigs in tungsten. In the first photo, The red and orange are 1/100th oz, the upper White and Chartreuse are 1/80th and the lower ones are tungsten. I do not know the weight difference just yet, but figure 40% heavier. Millimeter scale coming this week so will have exact figures.
  9. So I have this opportunity for anyone who wants a JT custom Rod. If you have not heard of them check them out here. http://jtodp.com/custom-ice-rods/ I bought two of them recently for 15% off and now at the ice show in St. Paul they again are offing 15 %. In working with one of the prostaff he has made he has sweetened the offer even more. Just let me know your interested and I'll give you the code to get an extra 10.00 off on the purchase of two rods. I bought the panfish snare and the gold digger rods. They are sweet. Can't wait to test them out.
  10. Those are awesome. You sell any?
  11. I use the Mikwaukee fuel 18 with 5 amp batteries. It's the older 725 inch pounder, but suits my needs. I have drilled on one battery on Boulder lake with 14 inches of ice, 35.5 holes with temp around zero. I have also drill ten plus holes in 33 inches of ice on Red Lake at ten below zero. Didn't need anymore holes, but the battery still read 1/2 charge if you can believe those lights. These were all without any special precautions for battery. Fell confident that three five amp batteries would deliver in excess of 100 holes. Don't know about the new 9 amp batteries. Sharp blades means more holes. Hit dirt and I guarantee you will get a lot less holes per battery. Tough decision I know, but mine suits me just fine. Good luck.
  12. Actual cost is 7 cents more than a lead head jig. More labor involved though fastening the bead to the hook.
  13. Very nice. Use one strip of UV and you could charge your jigs. By the way Rush, you have some jigs coming your way.
  14. About time someone recognized the issue. Great to see. I'm doing something a bit different now with tungsten by using slotted beads with jig hooks. So far I like the results, but time will tell.
