To make sure tangled line doesn't take time away from catching fish, use the Lakco Tangle Free Tip Up. The spool has a hinged hood that you open when fishing—and holds the spool, line and hook neatly inside when you're not. The tip-up flag is on a hinge that rotates over when not in use to remove the tension off the spring. The durable plastic frame measures 16" long and has a ruler along the edge to measure your keepers. It's your new winter weapon to keep your ice fishing gear from getting fouled up.
