Fish Trap Scout Pictures

Recommended Posts

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.

    • It’s amazing to me to look back already and realize 1.5 days around C season time  will be the story of my entire archery season this year.  Just too much other stuff going on AGAIN this spring to make an honest season out of it.   Full on fishing during any spare moments now.   Good luck out there!
    • Here are two more for you leech, but this time the holes were in some red pines up the Echo Trail.
    • No, no it looks like it was carved.  
    • I'm going to give it one last hoorah tomorrow morning. Going to be a quick effort before work but I've got a couple toms patterned pretty well. 
    • Have 2 pair of Costa sunglasses and cases for sale. Very good condition. $80 a pair FIRM!!! Only selling because I bought new prescription Costas. Live near Elk River. 
    • Cool, but that Goldeneye looks a little stuffed stiff. 
    • Here are a couple of pics of ducks nesting in tree cavities. We have a goldeneye and a hooded merganser. 
    • Spring is exploding right into summer across Wisconsin. You would never know that just three weeks ago the Northwoods was covered with ice and snow. Memorial Day weekend kicks of the unofficial start to summer and many of the reservable campsite at state parks and forests are booked. The best remaining camping opportunities can be found in the non-reservable campsites in northern state forests. The lower Wisconsin River continues to run high, but there were signs of sandbars beginning to emerge in some areas as water slowly drops.Universe in the Park astonomy program begins this weekend with program at Blue Mound and Kohler-Andrae state parks.Photo credit: UW-Madison Dept. of AstronomyFields and forests have greened up, and regular rains have kept fire danger low to moderate across most of the state with just a few areas still in high fire danger. Through the spring fire season 639 wildfires burned 1,800 acres; 53 structures were destroyed and another 441 were threatened, but saved.Wisconsin's northern zone musky season opens this Saturday and spring fish assessments are showing they won't be disappointed with what they find, with many fish over 40 inches netted and released. .
