FishTrap Guide cover

9 posts in this topic

I tried Fleet in Alex, Lakeville, and Rochester. No one had one. I will try Galyns on my way back up to Alex in 2 weeks.

Not to be stupid, but what is USL?

Do many people use these? Are they worth it? I was thinking it would help primarily for summer storage. I also think they would help keep snow out when I pull behind the 4 wheeler. That is, if we ever get snow!!!

Thanks for the help everyone!
SMnRookie!

These are great. I wouldn't be without one. Unless, and I mean UNLESS, you never do anything with your Guide except pull it in and out of a pickup bed covered with a topper and fish right next to the pickup on the ice.

Any other time you're haulting your Trap anywhere that it's not protected, falling snow and snow from the sled/wheeler gets into the trap, turning to water when it gets warm inside the trap (and turning lots of stuff wet that's inside) and then freezing to ice and causing all kinds of trouble.

Plus, the cover holds stuff inside the Trap well, and takes the wear and tear off the canvas tent when you're traveling.

They're $35 to $40, and worth every penny. But I've noticed that most outlets order in a supply in fall and don't re-order when they go out of stock. So if you can't find one locally, don't wait, log onto the USL site linked here earlier and order one.

I know for a fact that that Galyans has a few of the covers left. Not many, mind you, and they go quickly.........
I love mine. It's like the lid on the tackle box.

I was at The Bobber Shop this weekend in Mankato and I think I remember seeing a bunch of the covers there but I'm not sure cuz I already have one so was not looking for that. I would call them first.

    • Your right rs_ld,  a full smoker is the way to go, leftovers can always be frozen and re heated..good eats.
    • 195 degrees on these butts. Like they say, if you are going to spend 9 hrs smoking 5# of meat, you just as well spend the same amount of time smoking 45#. The local grocery had these on sale so had a few friends take the offer to throw a roast on for them. Took two off early for slicing  Pulling the rest cost them each a beer though!
    • Very good stuff, kinda tasted like ribs with this recipe,  I'll keep at it til I find the right one!! Good luck moon lake!!
    • It will be interesting to see how the Warriors react in free agency.  Will they be able to keep the team together?  It seems like all these guys value winning above a paycheck so they might be willing to sign deals that will still allow the team flexibility to keep good role players around them.    
    • That's too bad.  The fish were ON FIRE up there.  I went out with my dad and uncle with our tiller walleye boat, and hardly a clue what we were doing, and we crushed them!  Ended up with 118 pounds of packaged salmon fillets.  I think I can honestly say it was the most fun fishing trip I've had in my life.  Here's my biggest of the trip, 25 pounds.    
    •   It's amazing to see a thoroughly talented team like Cleveland just get dissected like a back alley pick up team. I agree--GS will be THE team to beat for several more years if they keep their nucleus. I think we can make them sweat a little bit now, though, so that's pretty exciting for a change! 
    • dang I can see why anyone would slobber!!!!
    • Fletch's hands are totally tied by his own doing, keep in mind our 1st round pick this year was 15 games of Hanzal...definitley not worth it. Fletch needs to get off his duff and pull the trigger on a Scandella trade real soon for a decent Forward and not pass up an OK opportunity by "hoping" for the homerun and missing out on a good opportunity.  IMO our only hope is that other teams are "watered down" more than we are and that our vets can hang in there one more year.
    • Wondermous!!  Anytime, fivebucks! Years of workin' on that stuff does count for something!!!  I wish ya WOULDA bet me!!     Glad ya got 'er done!!!  
    •   I just can't help myself when I look at Boober's goodies!!!      Wait....did that sound right?
