This tip is probably a bit late and I should’ve put it out before Christmas, but who knows. Those of us that celebrate a ‘late’ Christmas due to other family obligations can still use this. Save your wrapping paper tubes to protect your ice rods.
A lot of people, myself included, carry some or all of their ice fishing rods in a 5 gallon bucket. I think we all know that a tangle can go from ‘not so bad’ to ‘oh crap’, pretty quickly. If you don’t want to pony up the money for rod slicks or other expensive protection products, a wrapping paper tube is your answer. Simply take some empty rolls and run your rods inside of the them. Cut off the excess and you have a custom length rod protector.
Hopefully you take advantage of these tips like I have. I always enjoy learning about peoples new ideas or ways to improve things, especially when they are cost effective. Register to be a part of the SonarFish community and share your comments, suggestions, ideas, etc with us!
