Here are links to the two baits I mentioned I'm excited to try this year.

I got the Salmo Chubby Darter in several sizes and color patterns.

While on the subject of Salmo I also picked up some Zippers .

And last but not least the Custom Jigs and Spins Slender Spoon .

Also the show I follow for ice info is InDepth Oudoors TV on YouTube.
Check out the main video there and what's hanging out of the Jumbo Perch's mouth? A Slender Spoon of course.

That's a nice shelter. It's along the lines of PB's Shappell shelter. It has served him well for many years.

Once you bring your snowy boots in and zip the doors shut you find you have wet carpeting when the shelter warms up. ;-)

Here is a good YouTube Link where Dave Genz (the "father" of Ice Fishing) shows us how to use a Vexilar FL-20 (but the concepts work with any flasher unit)

I just listened to this and Brutus is right. The quality is much better and it flowed well. Hey Darkstar are you going to post your purchases on the blog? That way we can go and see them all.

I think it's gonna pay off for you. I have a feeling you're going to land a large toothy thing through the ice.
