No More Winter No More Ice

It was a bit unusual in Maine this past winter.  We had plenty of snow, and at times too much.  So much that ice fishing derbies were cancelled.  Not much ice most of the winter, since the snow never melted off and re-froze.  That’s great in a way, but not so great when it comes to reviewing ice gear.  I had the opportunity to review the Hillsound Trail Crampon Pros, and found lack of ice made that difficult.  Check out what I found so far HERE.
