Tuf-Line Duracast Ice Green

DuraCast Ice delivers all the strength and diameter advantages of Spectra fiber braid, yet it handles as easily as traditional nylon monofilaments. It’s also completely hydrophobic and will not absorb moisture, meaning it will not crack or freeze.


HT Enterprises Polar Them Extreme Tip-Up

MSRP: $19.99

Our favorite tip-up of the season, the Polar Therm Extreme proved particularly handy for Alaska conditions, as the tip-ups are stackable in a 5-gallon bucket, making it easy to transport five at a time to your favorite lake. As with the standard Polar Therm tip-up, with the Extreme the hole remains completely covered as you fish, so there is no freezing over issues. A built-in tackle storage box is a nice touch, keeping weights, hooks and tip-up lights at hand.

MSRP: $22.99

All HT Laker Pro rods feature solid, sturdy composite blanks with a strong backbone, and are tempered with just enought tip action for controlling your presentations and sensing strikes. This rod is a great fit for Arctic char, burbot and lake trout.
