  Needed a scoop to remove ice from fishing hole and had this high carbon wire salvaged from a futon and figured it wood work well. Wrapped screen around wire and soldered it to ring, then trimmed off excess w/ the dremel. Made the handle from some scrap dowel rod I scrounged somewherevicky gun 025 (Small).jpg vicky gun 026 (Small).jpg .

I bet that will work perfect for clearing out the hole! It looks like a badminton racquet. :D

Nice little project from what you salvaged. Did you put a pin through the handle to keep the wood from coming off, that would be terrible to go home with an empty handle. I did that to a handle I made one time, thought it would stay in but it didn't.  :mad2:

  I squirted some gorilla glue in the hole before inserting the rod.

How thick of ice are you fishing through? What kind of fish do you take?

Please make sure the ice is safe, before you venture out there.

A young lad was lost, not far from here the other day.

I don't go out on anything less than 4". Haven't been out yet but w/ all the cold we've had I'm sure it's at least 12" by now. We catch mainly trout. They taste lots better out of cold water.

Wow!  I would have thought by now most everything up there would be frozen solid. 

 

OSB, that is some good use of scrap.  I don't throw away anything I think I can use later just for this reason.  Good Job!

I always follow someone heavier than me when I go out on the ice.

 

You sure are right about fish tasting better when pulled from the ice.

 

We get trout,muskie,pike and bass in the area I fish at.At least that is what I am told.
