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.

    • Who has it for that price? Is the transducer included? I have a 5" version. They are good units but if you ever need out of warranty service they will not repair your unit. They give you credit towards a refurbished unit of the same type or let you upgrade to a different model for a certain price which is something to be aware of. I found that out when my elite 5 wouldn't turn on.
    • Your post is demonstrative of the point I am trying to make. Rural areas have been sold a bunch of talk, and you believe that talk and vote against your own interests. The metro area is taking nothing away from the rural areas in terms of taxes, tax dollars flow the other way. It flows that way through employers that exploit you. A particular quote from "What's the Matter with Kansas?" really nails the point home.      
    • I agree, but for the few times I do overnights I would use a light weight cot.  The hitch design is different than most of the other houses on the market.  It looks to have pivot points at the corners of the main frame.  I have yet to see one go through the drop or rise process.  A video of it operating steps would be nice too.   It would be great to hear from someone that ownes one.  
    • I have the hook 7 with down imaging/GPS/standard sonar, I have the lowrance lake chip for mine and really like it.  easy to use and good quality images on the screen.
    • I'm also in the market for a new pair of boots this year. I actually had a pair of Rocky boots that my wife bought me over 16 years ago but it is high time to replace them. I need a pair that lace up because of my prosthetic right foot so the Muck boot types are out for me. I think I will just get a pair of LaCrosse Ice Kings. What amount of Thinsulate is needed in a warm winter boot? I found a pair of Ice Kings on Amazon that says it is only 400 g. of Thinsulate but it is rated for -70. That doesn't seem right to me. Shouldn't it be much more Thinsulate?   https://www.amazon.com/LaCrosse-Ice-King-10-Brown/dp/B0047BWZHO/ref=sr_1_1?s=apparel&srs=2600960011&ie=UTF8&qid=1480899050&sr=8-1&keywords=lacrosse%2Bice%2Bking%2Bboots&th=1&psc=1
    • Friggin A!!!!!! 
    • Anybody have any input on these? I just bought a bigger boat and am looking for a bigger sonar. I found one of these for what seems to be too good of a deal ($520)
    • In the end all you need to see is when the jig disappears into the fishes mouth!  I've been using a Aqua Vu SV, it's old b&w with very small screen but it worked. But this year I won a Marcum camera from Thorn Bro's, (thank you). Lookin forward to trying it out.
