    First one seemed to do some good, so here is another gear report/update after an ice trip.

    1. JT Shiver stick: I have the 44 inch that is new this year for hole hopping and fishing from the truck. Really liked this stick. Excelled with many baits and great balance of sensitivity and backbone.

    2. Frostbite Drench: My other purchase this year for truck fishing and hole hopping. Handled 1/16 ounce small spoons better than anything larger. Need to use it some more but for $55 seems like a rod that fits a purpose. I’m still in the air on this one.

    3. TUCR 32 Precison: Raved a few weeks ago about the JT Gold Digger and said I needed to give my precision a few more runs before comparing. Well…I think they are both awesome! That 32 inch of the TUCR vs 34 of the JT made a positive difference in the flip shack. Both great sticks that I will have for walleye/perch for years.

    4. PK spoons: New to me, after watching some videos about ice fishing spoons, so I picked up a few. Wow, they were one of the top baits this past weekend for walleye. 1/16, 1/8, 1/4, even 3/8 sizes. Seem like an underrated/marketed product. Highly recommend.

    5. Ice Tank: Picture attached of my atv with Otter monster box and 2 otter 48 deep cases attached. Made organization and getting gear on the ice a breeze.

    6. Garmin Livescope: Friend of mine gave me his Garmin Livescope with the LVS32 transducer to use for a few days. I now plan to purchase one soon…likely with the 34 ducer. Big advantage for seeing larger areas.

    7. The Daiwa 750 line (my choice QR’s) are a really nice reel w/folding handle and at a budget price ($25-45). All I run other than okuma ceymar 500BF on deadsticks.

    Last year I ran the longest offering, and too picked up the 44″ this year. this is now my favorite blank. You can fish anything from aggressive crappies to walleye/pike without issues.

    Sssshhhhhhh! dont let this secret out! These have been my go to bait on the all pressured walleye lakes. It not a super common spoon and Im a firm believer of throwing something different down the hole. Ive outfished my buddies for years using these over a coffin spoon, buckshot, etc.

    Great budget reel! I love the QZ series
