    Default Stopping Ice Build Up on Reels, Rods, Line

    I'm new to ice fishing, and my biggest problem at the moment is ice building up on mr rod eyes, entire reel, and line. Is there a product I can buy to stop/slow down this? Thanks for the help!

    This is the stuff you're looking for.
    It works better than Stanleys Ice Off Paste at stopping ice build up.
    Spray on the line, guides and reel.

    It's looks like it could work, but according to the site, there's not a dealer in Alaska. Any other ideas, that I could pick up locally? Thanks!

    Cool Just a Thought

    I was just thinking you could cut out a circular piece of cork material and put a needle sized hole in it and feed the line threwthe top eye of the fishing rod so that it would break the ice off, that would probably keep the ice from getting in the reel I dont know if it would work though its just a thought....

    Default prestone silicone lubricant

    Yellow can. Auto section. Spray it on the line, guides and tip tops when everything is dry. I've tried 'em all. This is the best solution I've found. Better than WD, better than Stanley's or vaseline, last longer than any, cheaper but similar performance to Reel Magic. Water doesn't like this stuff, so you get minimal icing, and it's real easy to knock off any ice that does build up on your guides and tip tops. It does not damage line, rods, reels, etc.

    I use Fireline as mainline for most of my ice fishing. I spray the line on the spool as I'm filling it up. Wind a little, saturate, repeat. This produces longer lasting results than trying to treat a full spool of line, which may well have water in it from previous trips.

    I re-spray when ice starts building up again, usually about every other trip. Try it, you'll like it

    It does have an odor, so I do not spray my leader and I'm careful not to inadvertantly spray my lures.
