"Take Ice Fishing To The Next Level" By
With ice fishing
in full swing across Ontario, anglers are beginning to realize the
importance of having the right tools for the job at hand. From
portable huts that afford added mobility to powerful gas augers for
efficient hole drilling, specialized equipment will put you on more
fish - plain and simple.
Although the fishing world has had its share of fads and empty
promises, new products fresh on the scene can often revolutionize
the way we fish, and ultimately become solid winners out on the ice.
Take a peek at the new generation of ice fishing gear - this stuff
can help us all become better hard water anglers this year.
Monitor Those Tip Ups
Here's a common scenario. You're sitting in the comfort of your
hut, concentrating on your jigging rod in hand, all the while
oblivious to the status of your tip up. Did the flag just go up, or
has it been 'sprung' for the last ten minutes? It's happened to us
all, and usually coincides with a slew of coarse words and a promise
to be more attentive next time.
With the Strike Sensor from HT Enterprises, the days of watching
your tip up for signs of action are long behind you. The Strike
Sensor is an ingenious device that actually monitors your tip up,
alerting you to a striking fish through a series of audible beeps
that are transmitted to your person.
The Strike Sensor will alert you to movement on your tip up, all
through the use of a wireless pager and transmitter.
Here's how it works. The Strike Sensor comes in two parts - a
transmitter and a pager. The transmitter is attached to your tip up
by a strip of Velcro, with a trip line running to your flag and
secured by a clip. The battery-powered pager can be worn on your
belt or placed in the hut, as long as it is within a range of 100
yards. When a fish takes your minnow the trip line is pulled free of
the transmitter, and the pager instantly summon you to the action
The Strike Sensor is useful for allowing you to get to your tip
up fast, long before fish have had a chance to drop the bait or
steal your minnow. It also allows you worry-free fishing. Instead of
straining your neck to see your tip up, you can now concentrate on
the hole before you, evening up the odds between you and the fish.
In my opinion, it leaves one less thing to worry about when
looking for those big fish of snow and ice.
Brighten Up That Lure
Glow baits are a hot new fad to hit the ice. From spoons to
plastics, glow-in-the-dark lures can literally outshine the
competition when lowered to the dark depths below. But how can we
spend less time recharging them and more time fishing them? The
answer lies in the form of the LED laser beam.
The Lindy Tazer or Northland Glo Buster are two key-chain
accessories that produce a high intensity light, turning any glow
paint or tape into a brilliant and dazzling display. The
lithium-powered battery produces a laser that will supercharge your
lure, allowing your bait to stay charged for much longer durations
while shining considerably brighter than ever before. When compared
to the charging attributes of a flashlight or lantern, the LED wins
hands down. The laser also can be visible for up to a mile in
distance, making this small keychain an excellent signaling device
and possible lifesaver. Certainly a nifty addition to the tackle bag
or belt loop.
To give your lures a "beacon" of a shine, turn to one of the LED
lasers currently on the market.
Get The Motor Running
It's common knowledge that in order to achieve lure action below
the water, you must impart a jigging motion through hand and rod
above the water. Whenever your wrist or arm moves, so will your bait
- ultimately mimicking your body's actions. Well folks, those times
are about to change.
Nature Vision has manufactured the first motorized ice fishing
rods, capable of producing hard to duplicate jigging and twitching
motions through the simple touch of a button. The Buzz Stix uses a
battery-powered motor that transmits vibration down the solid
graphite blank of the rod, initiating a micro-action that is
impossible to duplicate by hand.
The Buzz Stix will allow hands-free movement to your jig - an
action that seems to do the trick on gamefish.
They can quiver the tiniest ice flies and jigs, yet shimmer
larger jigging spoons and ice lures, all by the simply changing the
mode. This delicate (but deadly) quivering action simulates the
movement of larvae and injured baitfish, meaning these rods will
work equally well with panfish up to pike.
(Watch batteries will last the duration of ten hours before
needing to be replaced on these units.)
Power Up That Line
We all know the merits of PowerPro line. Whether it is through
trolling for musky or jigging for smallies, this no-stretch line
allows positive hooksets and increased sensitivity. It only made
sense to bring those unique qualities to the hard water environment.
With the invention of PowerPro Ice Line, the folks at Innovative
Textiles have churned out a sure-fire winner. This microfilament
line absorbs almost no moisture, while also resisting the build-up
of ice. Line sensitivity is second to none, allowing precision
jigging, especially when dealing with deep water or lure-shy fish.
With many of the same qualities of its freshwater companion,
PowerPro Ice Line is extremely flexible, while offering better knot
performance and superior strength.
Currently, spools can be purchased in 8, 10 and 15-pound tests.
Take a look at these new items, and see the merits they can bring to
your game of fishing. Anything that can help land a few extra fish
is a winner in my books, and these gadgets and gizmos will certainly
do that and a lot more. Enjoy the rest of the hard water season!
