ATV ice equipment ideas

19 posts in this topic

I have a 2004 Honda Rancher and I want to build some type of box for carrying ice fishing equipment (auger, 20# propane tank, vexilar, etc.) Just wondering if anyone had a picture of one they built. Just looking for ideas. Appreciate any suggestions.

I have an otter fishhouse. I just don't want to pack it full everytime I go out. This way I can set up the house without unpacking everything. Better accessibility is the reason I guess.

I saw some racks that attach to the back rack at the ice show I am not sure who makes them, maybe maddog gear? I know they have holders to mount to hold your auger but the rack was a box style and would hold a lot of stuff or 3 - 5gal buckets

Did anyone see that atv by the Jiffy booth at the icefishing show? It had a rack on the back that looked wide enough to carry a 20# tank. That's what I'm looking for. The one's that I've looked at don't look wide enough.

Three milk crates bolted together, holds a 20# cylinder and two 5 gallon buckets. My buddy calls it getto, works for me.

The milk crates work well for hauling bear bait buckets too. Many uses.

As far as auger mounts go, it's pretty hard to beat the Mad Dog Auger Mount. I tried to beat it doing it my own way, and now I have the Mad Dog. $40 well spent!

Good Luck,

MJ

Check tractor supply, Cabelas used to carry them,not sure if they do any more... I think Koplin makes them.

I have a Mad Dog auger mount on my front rack and love it.

Does anyone out there know where I could get some milk crates?

I bought a rack for the back on my ATV from Cabellas. It is 3 circular hoops that fold up when not in use. Each hoop will accomadate a 5 gallon buckt. I also have two milk crates on the back ATV rack right behind the seat. For the auger I use my front rack mounted gun racks for the auger, secured with a bungie cord. It I'm going a long ways I put the auger in the sled and use the travel cover to keep the snow out. It works pretty good. good luck and hang on. Bill

    • Pretty sure Bernie had that figured out. After the primaries I voted for "not Trump" You guys haven't picked up that liberals are still going for not Trump, even if that means Mike Pence (who from a political position standpoint is worse for liberals).   Instead you have Trump, a man incapable of taking any form of criticism regardless of how irrelevant it is to anything. Why do I post the crowd sizes? Because Trump, in a speech given only to members of the CIA, thought it was important enough to mention, as well as to have a team of his own people there to applaud when he mentioned the size of the crowds.
    • Here's the exact reason why I encourage everyone to buy the digital readout.  After getting holes drilled and everything setup, I always run my bathroom roof fan/vent to get rid of the moisture as the slush on the floor gets melted.  Yesterday I cranked the fan on max which moves some serious air, but I forgot to crack a window, which caused it to actually suction the CO from my water heater back into the house through a propane line pass through.  I looked up and saw 30ppm on the CO detector, which isn't high, but an indicator that something wasn't right.  All it took was cracking a window and turning down the fan for a minute and it was back to 0.  
    • You do realize the person you wanted to be president couldn't even understand the proper protocol for setting up a cabinet level email account don't you?    
    • I looked into fiberglass a few years back for a build.  I decided against it as it needed a wood backer.  Not sure if there is a different product out there now.  
    • finally got out Friday, put on 75 miles in the heavy drizzle, not the first time I have riden in the rain. the trails were OK, I rode in aitkin co. that doubles the miles I put on in the last two years.
    • they load tested the battery and said it was bad, everything else they said was fine, they put in a new battery. tried it today after sitting since Tuesday, and it started up fine, problem fixed.   I have a 2002 grizz carbed, and that sat for close to 3 months, went to start it this weekend, and it cranked for at least a minute (very cold blooded machine) and it started, it has the same battery that's in the Polaris.
    • Precious snowflake Trump needs a safe space from the media apparently.   I suggest you familiarize yourself with the word kakistocracy, because that appears to be the road we will be traveling down.
    • No,I am saying those who are left with jobs are working for those who Obama is happy to give money to for nothing. He was as bad as it gets in terms of getting people back to work after a recession especially when you factor in the amount of money he spent to do it.
    • Yep, turns out it was a copy.     Whatever    
    • Donald has already managed to ramp up demand for ladies fashion hats.  This will create jobs and help stimulate the economy.   http://www.chatelaine.com/news/coward-hats/
