New products 2020/21
I would hope that people won't be using it to swiss cheese an area. I guess I don't really honestly see the point, if I trust an area enough to not be spudding every few feet, I don't think I'm going to waste the time with a mini drill bit.
I'm wondering if they had enough forward thinking to make it big enough to allow a ducer head to fit through. I could see a use to it if I can quickly drill 50 tiny holes big enough for my ducer head early ice to scout an area rather than drilling 50 six inch holes to do the same thing. Would save a ton on battery life
Junkie4ice - what do you think that will do for ice conditions once someone swiss cheeses the ice every 4 feet? Will those tiny little holes make everything weaker before it refreezes?
I also found that jiffy has a bit called the torch which looks like the pistol or k drill style and I finally found a video of the rogue it looks just like the clam/trophy angler electric auger to me the rogue just looks heavy but who knows. Just passing along what I found. Can't wait to see what other brands come out with for ice fishing this year.
Also looks like jiffy is coming out with a drill attachment for quickly checking ice conditions. Looks like it drills a tiny hole through the ice and tells you the ice depth. Seems a little unnecessary when a spud bar can do the same.
Looks like the Rogue comes in a 6, 8 or 10" priced under $700. Wonder what the 10" will be able to handle as far as number of holes. I don't think anyone else makes an electric 10" auger do they?
Jiffy is coming out with a 2 speed auger called rogue. Just passing on a new product.
Hey, I have one of the retractable stools for ice fishing and like it a lot.
I fish on my knees, but every once in a while its nice to take some weight off or sit and re-tie if needed. It fits nicely in my backpack for early ice or long walk-ins.
There's no where to throw all your miscellaneous items at the end of the day, ill stick to a bucket!
I heard there was a leaked photo on FB of Otter's new shacks for next year. I did not see them myself, but heard they looked pretty awesome. Anyone happen to see them?
Is there no shame!! ... a conspiracy to replace the traditional 5gal bucket. LOL
Fish Hound - I've gotten about 20 hours of use out of my piscifun icx reel so far and surprisingly haven't had any problems with the line jumping off the reel like I did with the BB freefalls. Like you said, the line and trigger are my biggest issue but to be honest, I'm starting to get over it. I really like the reel outside of that design flaw. Without gloves on it really isn't a big deal, it's easy enough to push the line out of the way but with gloves on it is virtually useless...
