New Spud
« on: November 30, 2016, 12:55:57 PM »
Well, I've been using that ice-hammer to check ice thickness/quality the last couple seasons. It works OK, but you can't really reach out in front of you due to it's short size. So last night I stopped at Gander and got the full size spud. It's gonna work a lot better, and it is 2 piece so will not take up as much room as a 1 piece in my sled/Clam. Got to thinking for early and late ice I should probably have a full size spud so I can reach out in front of me further when walking.

New spud! Great idea!

good deal. a spud is better than a hammer anyway, you don't have to bend over to check the ice every time so you can give the ice a couple of wacks every few steps.
When Hell freezes over, I'll ice fish there too!

Yeah, I figured now that I am fishing more early and late ice I should probably make the investment! Guess I am getting (a little) smarter in my old age!  ;)
