Traveling Pro

7 posts in this topic

I have a question: I have a Fish Trap Pro and am wondering if I should get one of those blue covers - reason is, I travel several hundred miles during the holiday season (my folks and wife's folks on opposite ends of state.) We have an SUV with luggage rack and when full of baby's stuff, only leaves the rack for my fish Trap. Will these covers travel? Or are they not worth it at 70 miles/hr?? I'm assuming I'd need to tie it down anyway, but..

I'd get the cover. They stay on pretty well, but I usually wrap a couple of bungee cords around mine when I'm heading down the road. Without the cover the canvas on your fish trap will whip in the wind(even if you think it's tied down well) and may get torn. I have a fish trap III and I made my first outing without the cover and I had to stop about 4 times to resecure everything. Got the cover and it's worked well for me.

I just got one for my otter this season, and for good reason too. I no longer have to worry about the minnow bucket cover flying off. but heres the main reason. I was up on Mille lacs pulling my otter with my snowmobile. So we're on our way back to the truck and I go to take the buckets out, Well, there were no rods left! I back tracked and found a trail of rods an equipment about 1.5 miles long. Just get the cover. It keeps your stuff in. and keeps the snow and slush out.

Sold. I needed to hear that - it's all what I thought- keeps your stuff dry and in order. I'm assuming it's just got the elastic type ends that just slip over the whole unit, right?

My otter cover has the bungy cord in it, and I would assume your would be the same.

The fish trap covers have the bungee in them also.

    •     ........if you are member of the LIVs. My 2nd graders think I am really smart at math as well. 
    •   No, but they wouldn't send them all to Belle Plaine where all the bleedies will take care of them, so what are we going to do? Man your pulling everything out of the old Libertarian hang book tonight.

    •   No and no, I read it closely, but down here I shoot first then ask questions.                          
    •   Nice try.   You want me to rip apart your beloved Portugal?  There are hole everywhere.   First thing is first. This is a government policy, so this comes into play faster then a bullet..   " ...many of the problems stemmed not necessarily from a disagreement over the facts but a disagreement over which facts matter when it comes to interpreting the effects of decriminalisation."   Just like you Dave, only using the facts that fit your narrative.     HIV - down yes.   Due to eradicating drug dens, availability of needles, health awareness.   Deaths, over dose - yes (arguably)   Due to access of real drugs, not designer, dangerous synthetic weeds.     Homicides - yes/no Also there is no data collected for drug related homicides.       Drug users are not deemed criminals but as sick. Which immediately becomes a public expense.       -"" Goulão himself is skeptical of some aspects of marijuana reform in places like the United States, which he says can conflate medical use with recreational markets. "Sometimes I feel the promoters of this discussion are mixing things together using a lack of intellectual seriousness (Big Dave & Purple)," he said.""     This is just in 5 minutes, I'll go on doing this all day long. Leave you laying on the floor.   By the way, you just cut and paste articles. In no way way have you presented an intelligent reason why decriminalization would curb drug use.   Keep pasting,       

    • Come on Del like any good law we have to pass it to find out what is in it.
    • If you guys (Dave et al) are so "end the war on drugs" you ought to be able to say what that means.  How can you advocate something that you can't, or won't, define?    
    • You dont care about his statements on the 2nd amendment or his ties with radical mooslims as you put it?  
    •   I don't reside in his district and have no power to vote for or against him so I don't spend much of my free time thinking about him.
    •   But your OK with paying for people to sit in prison?   The reason you want to keep drugs criminalized is because they are dangerous, is it not?
