Ice Eater

Has anyone ever used those ice eaters that they sale to keep the water from freezing, and keeping the honey hole open. I was just wondering how well they work. The youtube videos and advertisements look awesome, but I wanted to see if anyone in Utah utilizes this technique.

It's a trolling motor inside of a big tube. A few guys on here have made their own. I have an extra trolling motor. Or, you could get a 55 gallon drum, stick it in the ice, fill it full of fuel and wood, and light it up. You'll have a nice opening within a few hours. :thumbsup:

I seen the trolling motor idea, i like the 55 gallon barrel idea though. so that is something you could build in and then build the pond around it, that way its accessible throughout the hunting season just build a fire and melt the ice around it.

Never hunted over one in Utah hunted over one Nebreska years ago it was awesone. It seemed heavy and wouldn't be something you could lug around the marsh. Would be ideal if you had some private pond to set it in. The guys we hunted with actually set it up the night prior to the hun I don't know if its something you can drop in and hunt that day either
