1. Good gifts for ice addicts.
Having a tough time buying a Christmas gift for your favorite ice-head? Then check this stuff out:
This jig is ridiculously fishy. It’s the perfect imitator of natural flies and insects. Plus-sized pannies will straight-up inhale it. We can’t wait to fish it.
Bro Series Spinning Combo – Multi Species Deadstick
The ultimate control and feel no matter what fish you’re pursuing. Also has the Bro Band which tethers your line to suspend bait (deadstick) and release quickly when a fish strikes.
Designed specifically for ice, it’s the strongest, most durable small-diameter braid available, and also has hydrophobic water-repellant protection to reduce freezing.
Nebulus Emergency Flotation Device
One of those pieces of equipment that you hope to never have to use. Pull the handle and the Nebulus will inflate, supporting up to three adults and a submerged snowmobile or ATV!
Clam Drill Auger Conversion Kit
Use an 18 volt cordless drill as the ‘power’ to drill your holes — seriously!
Match it with a K-Drill for the ultimate lightweight combo.
These underwater camera systems are same size as a phone!
Btw, Aqua-Vu has made cord management easy. Check this out:
