Rod Holders for Fish Trap Type Shelters???

8 posts in this topic

Hi There!!!!
I recently purchased a USL built “Winnie” same as the “Fish Trap Voyager”
I know I have seen “Rod Holders” and “Rattle Traps” that attach directly or hang off the sled. I was not in the market for one when I seen these so did not pay much attention to them. I would like to know what all “You Experts” do for this????
Please Advise...

S.D.:

I think there's thread similar to this one on the forum, but I'm not sure just where.

Anyway, I highly recommend NOT using some type of fixed rod rack in a portable unless the rods are completely encased. Why? Even if the rods are locked in a rack, other stuff inevitably bounces around in there while you're hauling the portable, and bangs against the rods. It's like if you're a good driver, it doesn't protect you against the other idiots sliding around out there.

I recommend encasing rods in ReadyRig or Croxton Pond carry bags, or others of different brands, and tossing them in the portable. That's what I do in my Fish Trap II. Plus, during those times on really early/late ice, when even a portable weighs too much, the rod bags are easy to tote around.

Good luck. grin.gif

Sorry!!!!!
I did not mean to mislead anyone; in fact I have a Croxteon bag and "Love It"
I am speaking when all is set up and you are sitting there listing to the radio and watching the FL18 and jigging when its [PoorWordUsage] time or stretch your leg time…
I still like to Jig a Hole but leave another near by at night then I will turn over to the Tip-Up “2nd Line”

HT Enterprises has a good/fair clamp on rod holder. It will adapt to the tubing anywhere you wish to clamp it on.

A far better more durable option is the Driftmaster rail clamp and a Diftmaster little Duo rod holder. A very good and versatile system for rail or tubing mounted rod holders. Works well for open water use too.

Look at the Rock & Reel post started in the main ice fishing forum. Its another option for a rod holder in a portable shelter. They work good and take up hardly any space.........

I bolted a piece of PVC pipe on the metal support on each side of my fish trap, it works but I'd like to see a picture of FM's rock n reel.

I second the tub mount Rock N Reel the Flyingfish mentioned. I have tried several rod holders and this one is the BEST. No doubt about it!!Scott Steil

    •   Well, like I said, I think it was fake news but it was still pretty darn good! I like a really tomatoey chili and this one was that.
    •   I like chili without beans but my wife likes them and this recipe called for beans so I went with it.   That's pretty close to what I just made but it looks darn good. I'll probably try this one next time!
    •   This has zero to do with the article I posted. I don't think you get it.   Another one that doesn't get it.
    •     So you're saying that statement isn't true?      
    •   Oh, I see now.   The Feds bowing out completely,  zero control, regulation and placing it in the hands of the citizens, effectively ending the war, will flip the script and it will correct itself.    Crime down, prisons emptied, addiction to new lows, family saved.   Stfu.   You have no idea or plans to swap in after decriminalizing. None. Nothing.        
    •     Do you have any evidence to back this statement up?   Because if you listen to Trump's rhetoric, the focus is clearly on illegal drugs coming across the border.  With a traditional militaristic approach.
    •     The double standard pertains more to whether you have the financial resources to go into treatment and avoid going to prison than to legal versus illegal.  If Rush didn't have the financial resources to hire a good lawyer, he would have gone to prison rather than to a treatment center - simple as that.  The federal government (via the taxpayers) funds prisons - they do not fund treatment centers.   Both are controlled substances, but the reality is the government doesn't do a very good job of controlling either one.  They are still dragging their feet on legalizing or even re-classifying marijuana, even though it is common knowledge their classification is a complete farce.   The legal opiate version is just as addicting, or possibly more addicting than the illegal version, and accounts for the largest percentage of drug overdose deaths today.   If there is a crackdown on prescription opioids, the data shows there will be an increase in illegal heroin use.  Florida is a prime example.   We know there are ways of treating addiction that do not involve prison sentences.     The War on Drugs going at it from the traditional/conventional federal perspective is a complete failure.   Those are the facts, but obviously none of that makes any difference to you, and you will continue to defend the status quo with no rational reason to do so.     Bobby nailed it when he said "syntax error on line 1"....
