? 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 know you are young and all but just because an entity calls itself Politifact, that is no guarantee that they are presenting unbiased facts.    http://www.usnews.com/opinion/blogs/peter-roff/2013/05/28/study-finds-fact-checkers-biased-against-republicans     There are plenty of lies occurring on a regular basis from both parties and for you to not see that is only a demonstration of your own bias.

    • Hi! I have never ice-fished and my parents are coming to visit from the east coast and told me they would love to try ice-fishing. Does anyone have any recommendations on where to go as a novice? We have no equipment and so I was not sure if this is even a realistic thing to try. Any input on where to go (not too far from Grand Forks) and if there is a place that has equipment to rent would be greatly appreciated!   Thanks! Rachel
