    i plan on using fairly heavy action walleye ice rod..long enough for me to clear the ice if i dunk the rod tip into the hole to play the fish..thinking 6-8lbs test lines max..
    so far no takers nuts enough?? just wait til i hook one.. :cool:

    You know I will be game, wonder if there will be any carp in the East Harbor area ? By the way the pods work great on the ice, I know Richie up in Akron will set his up with a rod going in opposite driections and then drill the holes. Then he waits for the bite alarms, he has caught a lot of decent channel cats this way.

  18. Ak,get 6 Frabill 1660 thermal tip ups,they are the round ones. I can't praise this product enough for carpin through the ice. Let's you use the same rigs you use in summer, the same way, only verticle. Oh crap too much info to type,if you have any specific questions let me know and I will help any way I can.
