duck blind advice!!!!!!!

5 posts in this topic

I have a homemade duck blind on my boat that is exactly like the one they sell at cabellas. I am looking for ideas on installing the grass so it can withstand freeway speeds. at this point, i just take it on and off at the landing, but that isnt very fun at 5am. any ideas would be appreciated......

I use avery fastgrass mats and the ones I had on lasted for 3 years and now need to replace because they are like ripping apart because they got so wet. I had chicken wire fencing on my blind frame and then put the fastgrass mats on the fencing and tied them with slip knots tie ons (not sure what the excat name it is) and works well. some pics

this is what I did after 5 yrs of fast grass and somewhere there is a 18ft jon boat in there. I used to use a boat cover but this summer it got ripped to shreads and gona try without one I also used a green snow fence I got from menards and its called E-Z fence and did the same thing Quack did with the zip ties and it seems work good.

that is a great idea, I will be looking into doing the same thing by adding different grass on it. Looks good!

    • Hey everybody. An FYI. There is something new coming. Should be out around October, 2017 and available for on-line purchase.   If you google : ICE WELL Live Well ICAST 2017 The video of the product roll-out at ICAST 2017 in July, 2017 will pop up.   Also you can go to the product page. See : ICEWELLLiveWell.com. The page has a separate video to view also.                        The product is being manufactured from a custom blend non-buoyant polypropylene with impact modifiers to withstand extreme cold without cracking. The product will sit within 99% of all manufactured 5-gallon buckets for transport to and from the fishing spot. It is designed to fit within a drilled 8 or 10 inch ice hole. When in the drilled hole it will fill allowing you to throw your catch in the ICE WELL Live Well. No more throwing them on the ice or in the bucket to die, freeze or turn to slime. At the end of the day, pull it, place back in the bucket for transport home. No more frozen fish and easy handling. It's going to sell for around $19.99 plus shipping. The listed page will undergo changes before roll out that will allow purchase direct on-line. This is a creation by a Nebraska ice fisherman for ice fishermen. Made in the USA. Made with recycled materials. "Respect the Resource".
