Best money I've spent on Ice Fishing

What a fantastic reel (rod is awesome too)! I paired my Black Betty Free Fall with a 13 Fishing Widow Maker Rod -- 25" Light Action. Just returned from seven straight days on the ice at Lake of the Woods (LOTW), Minnesota, and I just can't get over what a joy this setup was to fish with. A quick squeeze of the lever and the jig screams down the hole -- don't want it to 'scream' -- well, adjust it to go slower/faster on the free fall portion. I use a Marcum LX6 sonar and fish with the moving map feature -- so as I see the jig reaching ~6 inches on the sonar, I let go of the lever and boom -- stops right where I want it. If I let go too quickly, no problem -- a quick squeeze and release and the jig falls a little more -- right to the position I want it. I can't tell you how many times on this trip my lure hit the bottom, I released the lever, and immediately set the hook after a quick strike. LOVE this reel (and rod)!!
