Clam Fish Trap Nanook Thermal Cover / Fish Trap Scout Thermal Cover

Well I think I have to say I can't wait till Ice fishing this year , I picked up these 2 Shantys last week , So excited Picked up the Clam Fish Trap Nanook TC and the Clam Fish Trap Scout TC The Nanook is the double and I wanted a single for the days I only go out , and I picked up a Scout TC . Thanks to James for working with me , Now I just need to upgrade MY FL-18 for a 20 or another 22HD But the 18 works great ... I just can't see the money difference right now in a head exchange . Although I might  who knows

Well My Review on the Vexilar FL-22 HD

Well another great weekend on Lake Carmi with My 2 Daughters Holly and Kayla and my friend Justin , Was great Holly got to go which was real nice plus she Caught her 1st Walleye through the Ice , Was small but she also got to catch some Huge perch , Which was so good to have her join us , kayla also got to catch her 1st Bass through the Ice which she was so Excited about , Also caught some Jumbo perch , Was nice to have both Daughters with me , Well now onto the Vexilar New 22 HD The 10 foot instead of the 20 foot range what a difference , Can use much more of the Screen , I also used the 12 Foot Zoom since I was fishing in 24-28 foot of water ,The Target seperation is amazing , I also tried it off the Zoom mode full screen mode , That was nice also but used to fishing with my FL-18 I really am spoiled with the Zoom I use that even in Shallow water I also played with the Tri - Cone 20 degree 12 degree and  9 degree , That was kind of cool this thing is amazing very Sensitive for gain wise , I normally run my 18 on maybe 3 to 4 , This was just barely on , Caught my jig , Sensitive is there , Crisp Display also , I can't wait to fish over it this Summer in my Kayak who knows maybe get a small boat would be nice too , But it is so nice .
