  1. Buddy of mine was going to throw out these tip-ups. Spools look like brass, and say Fishcrafters…Worcester, Mass on them. Anyone have any info on these?
  2. Hi guys, its been a minute since my last post. Because fishing keeps me alive as much as it kills me, I was getting severe withdrawal symptoms since September. Weather was inopportune to fish, but now Ice fishing is on the table and my itch is no more. We were headed up to New Hampshire for a boy scout camping trip, and my friend and I took it as a chance to fish once the fire was going and the little kids had their sleeping bags set up. Armed with twelve dozen shiners, four tip-ups, one rod and a Iota of assorted tackle, I took on the ice. My previous(and first) ice fishing trip was in February of 2021, so it had been a little while. We got out onto the ice and the first challenge had arrived; we had no auger. a quick trip up to the campsite gave us an axe. Back onto the ice we went to cut our holes. The ice was thicker than we thought, and it was a solid 7" at the very least. We very quickly changed into our base layers because it was though work getting the holes going. An hour later we had 6 holes, 4 for tip-ups, one for jigging and one for water. Shiners went down on 1/16 oz jigheads on 4 lb mono. I was jigging with a 1/10 oz Bay de Noc Swedish Pimple in the hammered nickel pattern. one of the treble hooks was tipped with a gulp waxie. This is the best perch lure I have ever fished with. Within ~8 seconds of me dropping my Swedish Pimple in the hole, it was hammered. A quick fight brought a solid 11" perch to the surface. Repeating the action resulted in a white perch and another sizeable yellow perch. The jigging ended up dying down, but the tip-ups ended up popping off. Another two perch were caught on the shiners. One perch was gut hooked so she became dinner. I've only fileted perch once before in my life, but for my second attempt I don't think it went that bad. Perch tasted like crap due to zero seasoning or cleaning, but it was cooling eating a fish I had caught. Sorry for the wall of text; I just wanted to add a story behind these photos. The photo with the fire is the rig we had for smoking the perch. if anyone has any advice for cooking/cleaning perch, recipes, etc. Let me know. Thanks for reading.
  3. Moving somewhere warm and won't be needing any of my ice fishing gear anymore. Everything has only been used 4-5 times, though the last time I went ice fishing was probably 5 years ago. Marcum Lx-3 flasher 4" Auger blades still sharp 3 ice fishing rods and reels Ice scoop Large variety of lures/jigs Also have pair of size 9 Kamik Gorilla boots that are knee high, rubber outside with thick removable liner (I stood in melted ice water for 6 hours and was warm the whole time) Everything sold together for $200, in Cambridge
  4. I would like to propose a gathering of Trolls out on the ice this Winter.... Before all of the “good luck with that” comments start flying around, Evan and I will be there with enough tip-ups for at least 3 other fishermen! Yep... 25 tilts rigged and ready to fish, a shanty with a kickass heater, and a portable grill so no excuses!! Late January-early February should give us safe ice and plenty of time to make a plan. I have a few areas in mind with plenty of parking, an easy walk, and steady action.

  6. Selling mine Almost New Shappell FX-100 One Man Ice Fishing Shelter with Extras. I bought and installed Shappell SWB1 Sled Wear Bars (to protect bottom of the sled) using Stainless Bolts and lockable nuts - about $30 value. I attached Captains Chair with folding back to the sliding bench, - about $45 value, so it's way more comfortable to sit and fish now. It comes with Shappell Ice Shelter Travel Cover also about $25 value Plus I installed stainless eye bolts in front for easy pulling. It's very portable, but roomy. I can put it in the back of my 2002 4runner side ways without folding the back seat row. It Really is in GREAT CONDITION. Best of all it's already assembled and you don't have to do anything. Asking $170 for all. Winter is just starting, so get it and enjoy fishing in comfort. Pics by request. I live in Brooklyn, NY. I can meet in Brooklyn or in central NJ or Upstate NY. Catskill Region, Sullivan County or on the way there along Rt 17.
  7. There is no ice still in my area and while I can not fish - I make homemade fishing tackle. I made a video about how I make very simple strike indicators. Take a watch:
  8. Anybody have a older gas auger sitting around in se mass. Looking for a 8 inch jiffy preferably that has some life left in it. Can do cash or PayPal thanks.
