    my panoptix took 1 and a half 9AH SLA batteries to run all day.  I can get by with 1 10AH lithium for about a day and a half of fishing.

    who knows if this will even work!  but here goes.

    I used to be a regular on this forum.  it was one of the more enjoyable stops of my morning internet browsing.  its not even on the favorites list anymore.  breaking the forum for over a year inexplicably (updates do need to happen but most happen seamlessly, not taking down an entire website for over a year) and the proliferation of social media groups just killed it.

    Forums are pretty much a dead medium for the most part.  there are some that thrive but they thrive off longevity and IS blew that wad when it took down the site.

    I would love for it to bounce back but like i’m almost certain this won’t post immediately if at all!

    There are supposedly 14 replies to this thread and nobody can even see one of them!

    about 10 years ago, we began fishing the trout stockings at our local ponds with the kids.  we used everything.  corn, doughbaits, worms, and we found that if its food and sitting in front of their face, they’ll eat it.   we just used long shank aberdeen hooks with a few decent sized splitshot for weight.  fished for them like we were fishing for catfish.

    stocked trout are used to feeding on the bottom.  They also will travel in large packs.  but they cruise pretty good.  so if you arn’t catching just wait.  it will happen eventually.

    i have used all the inlines. starting from okuma fly reels all the way to last year using the freefall.

    i only have 1 left and i hate using it. I’m back to spinning reels. in the 5 or 6 years that i attemped, near forced myself to get into the inline game, my fishing partner never budged and its been a rare occasion in which i outfished him due to the dreaded “line spin”

    nothing is more frustrating than fishing in 20+ feet of water and having to strip line off the reel to get your bait down. most of their drag systems are not as good as spinning reel systems either. Also some of the ones like the eagle claw the line can get wrapped around all wonky and can be quite frustrating.

    the free fall has been the best one i’ve used but obviously you’ve got a near 100 dollar price tag there.

    its lost grove. sometimes the bite is off but there are plenty of fish around that you should be able to put some fish on the ice. find a tree and drill some holes.

    since getting my first spikes 8 years ago, i’ve used wax worms approximately 2 times since then. Waxies are good for 1 fish and much of the time become skin flaps as you apply it to the hook.

    but vados is the best we’ve found.

    the farther north up the river you go, the better the quality and quantity of perch gets.

    on 13 you can choose from thompson, il, the sabula lakes, and spring lake. early season is when you have the best opportunity to catch perch there.

    The tip isnt near as sensitive as other my noodle rods. I use it with spoons and it works well but not any small tungsten.

    there was a guy on some board somwhere who rigged up his panoptix for ice fishing before this thing came out. was awesome looking.

    that being said, 1800 bucks seems just nuts. but i assume you could convert it to your boat.

    it all depends. i would venture a guess at 50-75″ of ice.

    10″ is a little much. its heavier and an 8″ hole gives you 25″ of fish girth to work with.

    larger batter capacity doesn’t have anythign to do with how the setup will perform but more how many inches of ice you’ll get.

    if your lazer is sharp it will suffice for the few holes you are suspecting. however, if you are going from hand augering to a drill set up, you’ll probably like most begin to drill more holes because of the ease.

    you can find some pretty good deals on ebay. i have begun building a milwaukee set of M18 tools, all bought off of ebay and have never had an issue.

    no but 15 and 16 are going really well.

    Thank you, sir. Where do you put in when you fish 15? I might try that.

    i put in at empire park on the illinois side. but there is a boat ramp at the lock and dam office in leclaire.

    I had a trip wire and sold it. I guess I�m not much of a spring bobber guy. I have the power noodle and with the tip on that, there�s no need for a spring bobber. The quiverstick is my favorite. IMO it�s a great walleye rod. Also good for jumbo perch. If you want something for panfish, go with the power noodle. I would think your quiverstick with a springbobber would handle both walleyes and panfish just fine.

    Yes I wish I just had the quiverstick without the tripwire tip in retrospect. That may be my ideal purchase this year, I was thinking it would be a little light for perch and walleye but if you were having good luck on those it might be just the ticket.

    the quiverstick for me, i liked because the visual indicator seemed unnecessary. without gloves i could literally feel the little bloop.
