Shelter Markings

7 posts in this topic

I have a question I hope you guys will help me with. I just picked up a new portable shelter. It has a black canvas cover and I am wondering what kind of paint/ink others have used to put your name or lic. number on it.

Thanks!

I just used some oil based model paint to paint the numbers on my Otter.

I just Put mine on a piece of cloth & put it on the shelter with pins. That way if you ever want to sell it, your name Or #'s won't be on it. Hope this helps. Good Fishin DOUG

I have a slot on the front to put mine in which I should do. I have seen people use the tags for deer hunting the big plastic envelope with the big pin. You can pin it threw the canvas or on the zipper.

I wrote my drivers license on a piece of cardboard and tied it to the zipper of my Otter.

ssendek...If you choose to go with a permanent option you can't beat the oil based stain blocking primer like Kilz. I used it on my fishtrap 3 years ago and it still looks good with no peeling or cracking. Its very flexible to move with the canvas as you fold it up. Polar Bear

Thanks for the info! I'll discuss it with my wife but I think I'll go with the paint. I plan on keeping this one until the little girl in my life leaves me, that is going to be about 13 yrs.

    • Thanks Rebel, very good answer.  I've been keeping track of the pressure for a week, now. 
    • Hey Rebel, what do you consider low and high pressure?  Perhaps a stupid question, but I just got a weather station so now I can start tracking barometric pressure. Right now the numbers don't mean much to me, been around 28-29% in the south metro the past few day and I don't know if that's low, high or middle.
    • Low pressure signals a front moving in, (Bad weather, wind may be  from the east or north) which usually puts them "on the feed", can have some hot and fast action. Likewise, a swing in the other direction, a high pressure system , (wind from the west or south) which signals clear skies and sunny weather, may do the same. The key to me, anyway, seems to be hitting it just as either front moves in. An extended low or long high may result in poor fishing. Remember the old adage, which also has to so with the pressure: "Wind from the east; fish bite the least...wind from the north , the fisherman goes not forth, wind from the south, blows the bait in the fish's mouth; wind from the west, is when the fishing is best". 
    • Those trumpers sure know how to keep things classy.
    • Is it true, the lower the pressure, the bite gets hot? Or the higher the barometric pressure the fish slow down on biting? 
    • Is that like saying "the lights are on, but nobodies  home.?
    • Newsie's where reporting on how the lights are on in the white house at 5am...   "First time in a long long time.."    
    • Beautiful!!! Can I ask what your dry brine for the side pork was?
    • Don't forget to get your Dihydrogen Monoxide detector as well!!! That's what we really need to be worried about!! Especially on and around lakes!
