Fish Trap Scout Pictures

5 posts in this topic

Does anybody know where I can find a little more detailed picture of a fishtrap scout? The only once I can ever find is the one with genz "inside" which doesnt show anything. I never really paid attention to the one man shelters and I want to start researching what one man I want but nobody has them out yet and no pictures in sight. Thanks!

It is a pretty basic one man - I believe it comes with a seat (like the one pictured as the basic jump seat in the "ice fishing gear" section).

If you travel pretty light (not a ton of gear) and only use one hole in the shack this is a pretty good option IMO. I personlly like the FT Pro cause it is big enought for two holes (one for the deadstick and other for jigging) with room to spare for my Mr Heater. Can be a little heavy to lift out of the car and can be a tight fit in the trunk depending on your car. Pulling threw the snow isn't bad unless it gets deep.

I have both the scout and the guide. I picked up the scout this year because of fishing by myself a lot and tired of hauling the guide around. It sits big enough for one hole and a little buddy heater and your flasher. the guy i bought it from uses two poles.He showed me how he set up his hole pattern and it would work. my go to walleye rod is a 32 TB. I just bought a 24 inch rod and a 28 to use in the scout. I am looking at a removable seat to use instead of the jump seat. More comfort. I bought it for about 150 in perfect shape. I stand all of 5'8" and if you are not 6'0"+ you should be fine.

    • First off, the comment I made which you replied to with a hypothesis never stated that there was proof they did anything wrong. I merely and accurately stated that there was a chance they did some of the same things and it appears that may be the case.   You said plainly that VW could have chosen the Daimler tech but chose not to. In the end doing so may very well have found them in the same boat.    
    • Haula is probably going to see a lot of playing time so I don't doubt he will have some nice years, kind of like how Brodziak scored 20 playing as our first line center. I like Schroeder as first call up or emergency player but he just can't consistently bring it in the NHL, that is no crime because when he gets hot he is fun to watch but he just can't stay there. 
    • That's some good info, Thanks.
    •   I think they're shut down, too.  Smells like no money and more welfare...    
    •   Not sure if their still producing cardboard up at that plant anymore?
    • Now Haula and Tuch will have career seasons next year.  Haula is the odds on favorite to win the Ross trophy and Tuch should have a couple Norris' in the next 5 years.     Sounds like Wild might not bring Schroeder back either.  I really hope they are contenders for a strong center or a really nice goal scorer.  
    • Good point about the center support.  I wandered out to my ground blind on one of the last days of archery season to find the roof caved in and two poles busted. 
    • MMmmm Cloquet....   Smells like money.
    • I am a little concerned with it fading but it needs to be left up for the deer to get accustomed to it so no way around that.   I assume the sun is the main culprit in fading so I'll do my best to protect against that.  One spot I'm considering is tucked into some pines which create a lot of shade, brushing it in heavily should also help keep it out of direct sun as well.   Good point about a center support to help with the snow.  I'll make sure to add something.
    • interesting? oh its raining here too!!!!!!!!!!!
