Add to worst: Not a buy, but a Christmas gift. The Clam tungsten tool hemostat. Received a pair for my wife and I to use. Neither can open up - somehow the end/tip is sealed together.

After today I will add a best:
K-Drill - worked great with Makita brushless hammer drill and 3 ah batteries. Not the most holes per battery but with 2 batteries worked great for me.

I second the Darter. Had one 5 years and feel I always need to give it a shot every year. Never a bite, maybe even -bites.

Best:

1. Flasher. Expensive but will change your fishing life.
2. Navionics map app. Best $10 I've ever spent.
3. Hub shelters. Priceless for a guy who walks most everywhere
4. Clam drill plate. My 4 stroke gas auger is collecting dust

Worst:

1. Clam fan. Moves 0 air. Worthless.
2. Cheap LED light strings from Ebay. Mistake.
3. Cheap plastic tip ups.

Just started really getting into the ice side of things this year so I don't have as much experience as most of you guys but so far I would say....

Best: buddy heater with adapter hose to run off 20lb tank

Worst: HT rod and reel combos

Seems like guys aren't liking strikemaster augers? I bought a used magnum 3 8" and it's worked perfectly for me so far, probably drilled 100 or so holes this year so far. And up north last weekend it fired right up Saturday morning at -25
