  3. All this snow will definitely get the water to freeze, just need some solid cold nights to get things started Sent from my E6782 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  4. Getting closer! Sent from my E6782 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  5. Yes, deer season is a must and followed by ice...hopefully right after the season closes there will be walkable ice Sent from my E6782 using Lake Ontario United mobile app

  7. Gotta love Amazon...what it cost ya Sent from my E6782 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  8. If u have GPS or navionics and look out past where the river flows into ontario u can see a red green dot and a red dot out further...that's the green and red can...it's a ways out there and u won't find much depth change until u get out past the green can...once u get out there set up and watch ur depth cause it will drop quickly...once u find that drop off or can follow it on navionics, run that shelf with varying depths on ur lines and watch for bait and marks...good luck Sent from my E6782 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  9. Good info from everyone for sure and many different opinions that all come together to make all of us better outdoorsman and learn something new. Let's keep the topics going! Jigs, shanty's, poles, reels, even tip ups vs tip downs...my ice story starts like this: Delivered furniture n appl for 10yrs, snapped my right Achilles tendon on April 18th in 2009 was on my ass for awhile and when I thought I was good to go...boom snapped it again :-\ so I was just starting to hobble around about 9 months later as deer season started so I was in my stand every day, filled my tags and then I was like what the hell am I going to do now...So I grabbed my grandfather's and fathers old wicker basket and the ol Blue Mora and headed to my local lake and started to drill...Holy ****! 18"!! I drilled two holes and was dead..guy next to me says hey buddy try mine and drill some holes for ur tip ups..eskimo 10" gas auger so the by the following week I had a strikemaster 8" xl3000 which I still own, over the years I have learned the love of panfishing while I have tip ups spread out for the toothy critters...got a lowrance with sonar,flasher,GPS and two hubs 6 man and 2 man, heaters, jig boxes full of customs and local bait shops specials..needless to say I'm addicted..best jig for me last year was Dave Genz drop kick jig in pink and white and bait was always changing, some times plastics sometimes live bait..always learning and still being outfished by old timers with one rod and a bucket..some times simplicity is better Sent from my E6782 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  10. Nils are bad ass augers...if ur gonna go for all the species u referred to I would just go with a 8" that way u have all your bases covered and u would be surprised how easy it is to cut with a nails auger, u might not ever use a drill Sent from my E6782 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  11. I didn't know that, well eagle claw is slowly making better products...hopefully they can hold up the shappell Sent from my E6782 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  12. Can't find those shappells anymore..been looking for that one myself, and I agree with ya on the "over" priced big names...cheap Chinese metal tubing and some canvas doesn't cost 400 all the way up to 800 for the otters Sent from my E6782 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  13. Yeah those are the cats ass but ur right they are heavy as hell and for guys like us that drag our stuff...not practical Sent from my E6782 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  14. Jealous....They're to new, haven't heard much reviews on them yet Sent from my E6782 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  15. True statement right there Sent from my E6782 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
