hello everyone.

new to the forums!

been a reader for a while and i love this site.

and now for what i really had to say..

What do you guys think of this,

>a cooler to hold your rods on the outside by mounting PVC on the outside. It has a ruler on top alreadt to measure our catch.

>you can put your tackle and whatnot inside of the cooler.

>Than if you really want to, when you catch some fish big enough to keep, you can wait till they freeze up, take the stuff outa the cooler, and than put some snow and your fish in the cooler..

i'll post pics later today when i finish.

What are you guy's takes on this???

Do you have any other mods i could do?

THanks,

God Is Love,

Jordyn

First, welcome to FM!

I wouldn't see why this wouldn't work. I've put PVC around a bucket to hold rods in my boat. I'd be ineterested in see some pics when you get it going.

I like the idea. I have been thinking of crafting an all-in-one chair/storage unit to hold my tackle, battery, electronics tip-ups etc. There are a few different products on the market right now that have this type of functionality but seem to have mixed opinions in terms of quality and price.

Taking your idea a step further, it'd be nice to mount a boat seat swivel on it and add a boat seat from the summer boat or find one cheap online. I like to make the process of packing/unpacking as easy as possible so containing several items in one unit and multifunctional is a big bonus in my book. Keep us posted with pics of what you end up making....i'd love to see what others use as a solution.

Jordyn,

The only thing you need to do to finish that bad boy off is mount a couple skies on the bottom of it with a frame for a little ice clearance. One of my buddys did something like that when we were kids and it was awesome. Could probably use just a couple of 2x4s cut at an angle up front and back so you can go either direction with it. Then finish it off with a thin strip of aluminum to make it pull easier and you can have some fun with it. Hop on and slide down the ramp at the launch and hold on tight.

    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
    • What do you have against Japanese Beetles?   Diversity is good.   We need all nationalities of beetles.  Even VW beetles.   Asian Lady Beetles, everything.  All nationality and gender identity beetles. 
    • Tysons chicken tender, Top sirloin steak, pork chop, burgers seasoned to taste - crispy crowns, tutor tots, fries - beer batter shore lunch Walleye, Crappie all better than deep fryer, oven or gas grill. Just do potato first & keep hot in oven at 250. Even Spam is better than pan fryed but if your under 40 you may not have a clue about Spam.
    • Yes spray it, or wipe it down with an oiled paper towel before you use it.  I use a little ball of aluminum foil to scrub them after the cook, but while they are still warm. They make disposable grill topper grates that are handy too when you are cooking something that is going to be really messy.
    •   Non-matching carpet and drapes have been known to cause numerous issues, too, with or without beetles, especially in Los Angeles. Keep the hamsters safe by putting in a zip-loc bag during spraying.
    • Yes, I agree with you, but there are some professionals in Queens NY who provides an eco-friendly spray, which is not harmful.
