Homemade Ice-Fishing Gear and Boat Brands – BCB82

SAM_0067There is a bunch of homemade ice-fishing

equipment you can make yourself.  JJ and Josh

have made tip-ups, a sonar box, a sled, and jigs.

1.Sled

JJ and Josh made a ice-fishing sled for under $20.  It can be easily broken down to store or transport. They made it out of a pair of skis with a 2×8 attached to them. Then a piece of OSB on top with a rod holder in the back.  Look at the pictures for more detail.

2.Tip-ups

They made two different kinds of tip-ups, Wind Tip-ups and Ice Riggers.  The tip-ups were made very inexpensively.

3.Sonar Box

The plastic sonar boxes you get for the store are quite expensive so JJ and Josh decided to make their own.

For the jigs they made molds in the shapes of jigs, put hooks, and poured lead into the molds.
