Baiting for a week Q's

Recommended Posts

Got the green light for a once a week site two hour round trip which i know is'nt all that far for some of you, but the question is I wanna fill the crib with 100-150 lbs. How do haul all that bait in? multible trips? I aint got no help which i dont want at the site anyway. I was thinking about using a two wheel cart an straping a barrel to it for one trip, dumping an leaving. or one of those deer carts. an ideers? boar

Boar, I haul bait in buckets in my Otter type sled. This is the same way I get my bear out too. Wheels catch any branches and weeds etc. and getting over logs or through wet areas is terrible. If you do cross wet areas the sled floats taking little effort to pull.

Otter sleds are amazing for bear season. We use one to pull in stands, pull out bear and just about everything inbetween. Even doubles as a ferry from time to time.

We use a heavy duty garden cart. The wheels are large and it is evenly balanced. Even if you have 200 pounds of bait on it, you can still pick it up with one finger. The thing is like a run-away train going down hills. Once we get off the main trail it is usless though. We just try to get all the bait as far as possible and then make trips back and forth to the cart.

    • I rode the trails around big lake today, mostly to get used to the new trails. trails were awesome, they must have groomed last night, rode to becker and back and some other playing around. all in all I put on 42 miles today. I will ride into the orrock area tomorrow. don't ride that much around here anymore, mostly aitkin co. now. looks like the trails around the sand dunes look good, I will give it a shot tomorrow.
    • I'm guessing not much. I know the one pounders threads can start to rust in a humid environment, but am not sure if that would be an issue if still attached? I know nothing about propane augers,  is there an oil tank to keep the engine lubed? And if so, does it need to be refreshed or drained every once in a while? It's not like you need to worry about bad gas gumming up the system.   Mostly,  I'm just replying to give you something to read TJ. Hopefully somebody else will chime in with more knowledge.  
    • Possibility of moisture getting into them after washing the stove top and around the burners? My wife is good at that.
    • I get it, like the woman in the commercial. You are clever. 
    • Fleet Farm currently has Kingsford 15.4lb x 2 for $8.  About the same per pound as the summer sales.
    • We have a 6 year old Frigidare gas range and the ignitors on the top burners seem to be controlled by a ghost.  Sometimes one doesn't work, sometimes another.  Any ideas?   Thanks for your time. Tom
    • Make sure the adapter wiring matches the diagram on the cover of your female plug-in on your truck too.  Some use the center pin for backup lights,  yet others it is an auxiliary.  Also make sure that the lobe on the male is lining up with the lobe on the female plug-in too.
    • Trailer, one side, brake and turns dont work, same wire, same bulb filament.  Sounds like a ground problem.  With other tow vehicles its ok.  Are these 7 pin to 4s?  Could be the wrong adapter?  Not all 7 to 4 pins are the same.  Sometimes too that bad ground seeks its path through the hitch.  
    • Wrapping up the ice fishing after tomorrow. I’ve never owned a propane auger before this one and the one I have was bought used. Any storage tips?  
    • They are probably wired differently. I’ve seen this happen.    Actually I had a brand new 2015 Silverado 2500 diesel issued to me as a company vehicle and had issues galore with the factory wiring and the gooseneck trailer I was pulling. It was the biggest nightmare I’ve ever had and it was all with the factory Chevy wiring and integrated brake controller.
