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!!!

    • Everything turned out awsome, I'll definitely be hanging the bellies again. Cold smoked then heat with more smoke.
    • love the answer thirdeye!!!!  hang onto that last bottle!!
    • Should be some good games today, I'm definitely rooting for the Falcons and Steelers but I don't know man. The Pats just seem to play the best team ball in the League. Guys step up and perform at every different position.  The Packers are just scary in the post season, not so much the whole team but that dirty dog Aaron Rodgers.    I hope they both turn out to be competitive and exciting.

    • You miss the Bush administration? Howso considering the Obama administration was pretty much the same only cooked a little longer?
    • many of my 2nd graders have more frontal cortex development........
    • My trailer is a bit over 20 years old. It was redecked 10-12 years ago with 3/4 plywood decking that was not treated and that lasted about 10 years as well so it seems a decade is the lifespan of regular plywood left outside with no treatment.    I replaced the deck for a second time this year and used treated plywood so we will see if that makes it more than a decade. I would suspect you might expect at least that much life from advantech even though it doesn't seem to be rated for continuous exposure if I read it right.
    • That's what I miss most about the Bush administration. Sure, they were evil, but at least they were freaking competent. Sure, they lied a lot, but at least it wasn't about easily disprovable things like crowd size. When they lied, they lied to further their agenda, not to mask their hurt fee fees.   All Presidents are ridiculed.
      This is the only one who takes it personally. Such a baby. Sad!
