Tune Up Your Ice Fishing Equipment in the Summertime
Something I like to do during the summer is check out my ice fishing equipment. Particularly my flasher (Marcum LX-5) and my Strikemaster auger. More than just ‘checking them out’, I like to charge up the battery for my LX-5 and fire up the Strikemaster auger.
These tasks end up taking about a half hour or less and it helps me find any issues I might have with my equipment. Another good reason for checking out your auger during the summertime is that it is a lot easier to work on it, change blades, etc, when it is warm out and not freezing.
Other than a few other things here and there, I focus on the flasher and auger. Is there any ice fishing equipment that you also check in the summertime? Please leave a comment below.
Good luck fish’n
