Bothwell Voyageur / Top Bag
« on: January 02, 2018, 01:30:52 pm »
I recently returned from a trip and I got to try out my new top bag from BV for the first time. It is perfect and holds my auger in place just as I had imagined. Having multiple zippers makes it easy to place them in a spot or multiple spots where I have items I may need to grab quickly. I was also impressed with the quality of the bag and zippers. This bag will last me a long time and will get a lot of use. Thanks again!

Winter Trekking Ice Fishing / Minnows
« on: November 30, 2016, 01:01:09 pm »
What doe people use for bringing live minnows on trips? As long as the lake allows I bring them on all of my trips and I feel like I can improve my method of transporting them. Right now I leave them in the plastic bag inside of my minnow bucket. Just curious to know what other people do and how they pack them down as I feel like my bucket is never quite secure.

General Winter Camping Discussion / Digging out Stove area
« on: November 08, 2016, 01:44:16 pm »
So as I have been reading through all of the good information on this site one thing that caught my eye was in the hot tent section under the equipment tab where the stove area was dug out and the sleeping area was filled with snow and had a log separating the two areas. I am curious how many people do this and how well it works. As I am planning on camping on the ice this year I am wondering if I might want to try it on the lake to keep a little more insulation between myself and the ice. I think my only concern would be the amount of space taken up as typically during the day we basically lean our entire sleeping area up against the back of the tent to add to our space during the day.

Winter Trekking Ice Fishing / Wind Block
« on: October 31, 2016, 04:49:41 pm »
The location of the trips we take are 50% based on fishing and 50% based on difficulty. When we take trips of 4 miles or less we have often brought a pop up fish house along but once we go any further than that we don't bring any with to help block the wind. I have thought of using a very small tarp with some sticks or PVC pipe or even trying to pile up some snow. Does anyone make or bring wind blocks for fishing?

General Winter Camping Discussion / Winter Camping on Ice
« on: October 31, 2016, 04:34:05 pm »
Although I have spent many nights in my snow trekker I have never had it on the ice. There are two main concerns I have with this, ice melt and wind. We always let the stove go out at night but typically have it going a decent portion of the day until we go to sleep and I am wondering what people do about the ice melt and how much of a problem does it actually cause? I am thinking some kind of heat shield or flooring under the stove would help but I also don't want to have anything freezing to the ice.
My second concern is the wind as the tent only has 1 guy out on each of the sides and back and 2 on the front. I know I can pile snow on the sod cloth but do you think that's enough to keep it stable? Our plan is to fish out of the tent but of course if there is slush on the lake we will be camping on ground.

Thanks for any feedback you have!
