Recommended Posts

can anyone help me find the link or thread on how to build and install cc skies to a portable fish house? I have gone thru pages and pages and can't seem to locate. thanks

I put skis on my Fish Trap Pro and loaded down it pulls about 75% easier. They can be put on or taken off in about a minute. The compound angles pretty much hold them on but through trial and error have found out that a little piece of wood (1/4 x 1 1/2 x 3) mounted to the bottom of the angle on the long pieces mounted to the skis really helps. The bungee cord keeps them on and is just hooked to a J bolt attached to the under side of the tub lip. full-44005-51004-image.jpg

I attached my cc ski's directly to the tub with counter-sunk screws (on the skis). If you try pulling it on bare ice and they're not counter sunk they will dig right into the ice. Been there,done that!!!!!!!! eek

Screwing skis directly to the tub will work better than nothing, but it certainly won't be as nice as something that'll lift the sled 4-8 inches up so it won't drag through the snow.

Here's some old threads -- the name that most folks use is 'smitty sled' if you want to google around for more:

Also, a search tip on this site. There's a 'search' menu toward the top, but it's not ideal. Try the 'search' box on the LEFT side of the screen . It will work just like google, but limit results to threads on this message board. It's really nice. Try it sometime -- in fact, put 'smitty sled' in there and give it a whirl, see what you find. Or even if you don't know what kind of sled, try 'portable skis sled'. LOTS of great results.

Google "smitty sled" and you will find a bunch of pictures and threads on what others have done.

I had a smitty sled for couple years and it was nothing but trouble. Sled did not stay on, packed snow between surface and tub making it harder to pull, and always had to take flip over off it so did not have gap under flaps. Will c which setup is better for me with my new setup this year.

    • I have not purchases Forscan as I have access to an  OEM scan tool. There are somethings that the Forscan software can do that IDS cannot with Asbuilt. I have ways arround that. Just to clarify, you may not have to purchase the software to do what you want but use their free version. This is worth exploring. As for the OBD interface, might want to ask that question is a specific f150 forum and get an idea of what others are using.    High speed and medium speed compatibility would be nice for future toying. For your truck, you only need high speed interface. I can't remember what pins. Your truck has a gateway module DLC.  Basically it's a router that allows the different networks to communicate, but also your scan tool to communicate with all the networks over HS CAN 1 and 2.   The only software related mod I have done to my car is change the 3 turn signal blinks to 4.   Happy modding!
    • Ok that makes sense. When I saw swan I figured it was an member id. When I went to cub today I asked the HS kid if they had any  I got "I know we have them I just don't know where they'd be". I said freezers maybe by the other tots he said "what makes you think that" You can't make it up!
    • I think Schwan's is what was meant.   https://www.schwans.com/products/product?id=60297   The operator person will bring them right to your abode.

    • Box? i don't think I've ever seen them but will be looking in a little while
    • Buy a box of cheesy tots.  Cook.   Use rack over sheet pan on grill or in oven.  😀
    • Cheesy tots sound great! Anyone got a recipe?
    • If you're feeling adventurous some time follow the same process you just explained but instead of using a rib rub try using a generous amount of Montreal Chicken seasoning with yellow mustard as your glue.  Also, try a wing or thigh before using the Famous Dave sauce.   Goof Luck
    • I took wings, thighs and legs and put rib rub on them and let them sit for 4 hours then I smoked them for about 90 minutes this morning. Tonight I put them on the grill to crisp up and slathered with Famous Dave's. I seem to kill chicken on the grill but with the smoker I can regulate better plus all that flavor. Only way I'll do chicken now!
    • The grain belt is a bigger sin.😁
