Nils auger caddy.

6 posts in this topic

Made up a Nils auger caddy, I started with an otter tube and figured I needed some engine support, so I added an adjustable support that slides in or out depending on whether or not I have the extension on. The sled just hooks behind. Now I just need a motor cover of some sort? Does anyone make such a thing? Suppose I could just resort to an elcheapo garbage bag. I think someone should design one and get them made up, a nice zippered cordura cover, heck even with the fishing MN logo would be nice, since the store sells the augers and all.

Here's the pics , sorry for the quality, camera apparently doesn't like the indoors.

I have a nils on my sled. I cut the end off my eskimo zippered cover so the extra length sticks out the end. I put a couple of plastic cable ties around the end of the zipper so it won't un zip all the way. I also have a 10" tube so the nils fits with the blade protecter on and the the bag and sleeve keep all the snow out when riding. I hope this helps DrJ.

The ready rig motor covers work good . The blue one is smaller than the yellow ones for Jiffys but the blue one fits the Nils perfect like it was made for it . I think it was made for strikemasters but good with my Nils .

    • Hey you guys-you forget I'm an old Alaskan.  I know all I need to know about the dingbat and her famous family. If you are actually accepting her blather as useful intelligence and knowledge than you are as squirrely as she is. Let her just fade away for Pete's sake.
    • Hi Dave.  We have talked about this briefly a year or two ago.  Due to the paranoia factor on this site I and most others aren't here as much.  I do miss guys like you Dave.  I remember the pic of your camper at Itasca so we took a drive through this summer.   I wondered where your spot was.  Man I hope you come out of this alright Dave.  My Uncle had diabetes bad and finally lost the battle.  The docs said change your diet or take the shot.  He said give me the shots.  Well that lasted for many years and his body finally gave in..  He should have changed his diet too.  I took him to a couple of bear baits he wanted to see and he told me his feet were finally giving in.  AND he was a tough guy.   Anyway Dave we all love you and I hope you can persevere....   I am thinking good things for you so you think positive too.....    Barry.    Hope this isn't deleted for one of their paranoid reasons...  If it is deleted I will never be back as many others.   So sad.....
    • It is interesting how people got out so early.  I have done it too.  3 or 4 hits with the spud and it is alright.......  NO it isn't ....  It is manly to talk about getting on the ice first.  Well now that I am older I realize it is stupid talk not manly.  The fishing sales world is just as guilty.  They talk about the first ice fishing being so good.  They actually are hugely responsible for getting stupid people out on thin ice.  The lets make a buck is more important than anything.  ANYTHING!!! 
    • Great pictures.   I'm used to seeing eagles, but those pictures are outstanding. 
    • Didn't I just do that?   Can't you read? 
    • Only if they have a drinking problem and maybe me implants.  That's all the Canadian folks care about....
    • That sounds like a great idea. 
    • I know perfectly well how phishing works.   Typical Liberal thinks anyone who is not toeing the party line is ignorant.    It isn't that hard to phish a fool like podesta.
    • I feel like we were just water skiing not to long ago!  Definitely caught a sun burn for deer season ha.  I'll be doing my fishing at the grocery store for a bit yet.
    • Remember, your fishing for pickerel!!  No such thing as walleye where your fishing
