Equipment holder for ATV

12 posts in this topic

Just got an ATV and fired up to use it for ice fishing. What do the rest of you use for holding your auger and what type of rack do you have to hold your other equipment like buckets and things like that. I have a Yukon but I don't like hauling everything in that if I can help it. Any advice on what's worked is helpful. Thanks,

I just made one out of plywood and 2x2. Just took everything and laid it out and built a box around it. Works great holds three buckets, flasher, auger and heater. Just starp it on the back of the 4 wheeler and away we go. I leave it on there trailing also, I have lids for my buckets. Doesn't look as fancy as the other ones out there, but it fits the budget. Good luck.

Here is my set up. Used basically t HD gun racks for the auger rack. They are mounted on a storage box on the front.

In the Auto dep. at WalMart You can find a set of Jaws that clamp on your racks. They sell them in other sporting stores, but much cheeper there. They have alot of ATV stuff!!!

I cut a 5 gallon bucket in half and zip tied it to my front rack. I use that as my bucket holder. I have an auger holder on the back. That is it. I can get my rods and jigs, along with my Vex into my bucket. I salt my own minows so I never have live bait. It doesn't look like much but I like to go with as little as possible so I can jump around a whole bunch. 2 inches on a little lake I fish near home. Should be at least a solid 3 if not more this weekend.!!!!!!!!

I got a couple of V holders for the front at Fleet Farm for pretty cheap and they have straps to hold the auger in place. Got my GPS holder there as well. I have a bag that has a seat on it for the back of my wheeler that holds a lot.

Built this12”X12”X36” box a couple years ago and it carries auger and anything else I can pack in it really well.

Hey Buddha

I sold my sled and replaced it with an ATV this year. I have been having a blast getting it set up for ice fishing. I drag around an Otter Cabin. As for carrying my Auger, I also went with the Mad Dog "V" mounts. It's pretty cheap - got mine at FF - and seems to hold it pretty tight.

Have fun with your ride.

Thanks for all the ideas, now I have some things to think about. I have a 2-up from Can-Am so I like the idea of putting things in front and keeping the seat in back for my fishing partners. Looking forward to ice, let's hope for COLD!!!

    •   Well, like I said, I think it was fake news but it was still pretty darn good! I like a really tomatoey chili and this one was that.
    •   I like chili without beans but my wife likes them and this recipe called for beans so I went with it.   That's pretty close to what I just made but it looks darn good. I'll probably try this one next time!
    •   This has zero to do with the article I posted. I don't think you get it.   Another one that doesn't get it.
    •     So you're saying that statement isn't true?      
    •   Oh, I see now.   The Feds bowing out completely,  zero control, regulation and placing it in the hands of the citizens, effectively ending the war, will flip the script and it will correct itself.    Crime down, prisons emptied, addiction to new lows, family saved.   Stfu.   You have no idea or plans to swap in after decriminalizing. None. Nothing.        
    •     Do you have any evidence to back this statement up?   Because if you listen to Trump's rhetoric, the focus is clearly on illegal drugs coming across the border.  With a traditional militaristic approach.
    •     The double standard pertains more to whether you have the financial resources to go into treatment and avoid going to prison than to legal versus illegal.  If Rush didn't have the financial resources to hire a good lawyer, he would have gone to prison rather than to a treatment center - simple as that.  The federal government (via the taxpayers) funds prisons - they do not fund treatment centers.   Both are controlled substances, but the reality is the government doesn't do a very good job of controlling either one.  They are still dragging their feet on legalizing or even re-classifying marijuana, even though it is common knowledge their classification is a complete farce.   The legal opiate version is just as addicting, or possibly more addicting than the illegal version, and accounts for the largest percentage of drug overdose deaths today.   If there is a crackdown on prescription opioids, the data shows there will be an increase in illegal heroin use.  Florida is a prime example.   We know there are ways of treating addiction that do not involve prison sentences.     The War on Drugs going at it from the traditional/conventional federal perspective is a complete failure.   Those are the facts, but obviously none of that makes any difference to you, and you will continue to defend the status quo with no rational reason to do so.     Bobby nailed it when he said "syntax error on line 1"....
