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.
