? about 2 man Fish Trap.

7 posts in this topic

My buddy has a two man fish trap and the tarp got attacked by mice. He's wondering if it's possible to buy just the tarp and attach it to the sled himself and if so, any ideas on how much a new tarp would cost? Does the fish trap people even sell just the tarps?

USL (makers of the Fish Traps) apparently will sell/replace covers.
You can also have them custom made by some "canvas" crafters around town. Check the yellow pages...

If you bother to have it custom made, you can really do it right by adding a sky-light window, and a D shaped door, which is definitely the way to go.......

Do you have the Fish Trap II or the Fish Trap Guide? USL no longer makes tents for the II, which was replaced by the Guide.

The dimensions are slightly different, but USL told me a Guide tent would work on my II (the Guide tent is just a bit bigger). I passed, opting to patch for a few dollars rather than spend the big money. When I asked last winter, the Guide tent ran $170 new from a Duluth/Superior retail outlet.

Any canvas sewing tent and awning place can replicate your canvas cover if you bring it in. And they can use whatever weight canvas or other fabric you want. Not sure about price.

One thing about the Guide tent vs the Trap II is the Guide has that ice armor fabric, which is a lot tougher than the Trap II canvas and very light. Also, the Guide has a zipper door that the II does not, which makes it nice to get in and out without breaking the snow seal on the bottom of the tent.

Good luck.

    • I won't be able to post the scores for this week until maybe Wed. so if someone else wishes to do so feel free to do it. In fact for the entire summer season I'm going to be pretty much hit and miss. So don't count on me the lake is calling and I have no computer there. My scores will drop like a rock unless luck prevails.

    • So I'm finally getting ready to get the boat wet for the first time this year.   I noticed last night the steering wheel is very tough to turn.  I did done research on some older threads on this site containing to my problem.   One tip I read was to check the big nut next to the motor on the steering arm.  Its printed on the nut -caution**tighten.  Some one said that nut should be loose.  Mine was wrenched tight apparently.  Does the warning on the nut mean , make sure its tight or do not wrench tight???  Btw it's a 05' mercury 115 if that makes any difference.   I will also re lube and clean the components also to see if it makes a difference.   Thanks for any input!!
    • Hey team, last miute success for the team...... nice tom too!!! Heading on vacation today will submit it mid next week when I get back. 22.11lbs with 10 3/4 beard. 
    • I will admit to this :   there are a couple of crystal clear, cold lakes in Yukon,  within a mile or so of my cabin, where you COULD actually eat and enjoy pike. They did not compare to some nice Grayling but  you COULD eat them. I'm not a fish eater unless it is fresh king salmon or kind crab but quite a few folks would eat the pike. And I will admit to enjoying a chunk of walleye now and then so long as it is slathered in hot sauce and I have had 13 double Makers Marks. But hey!.....you fellas enjoy them!
