Used Two Man Flipovers

Recommended Posts

Currently looking at two different used flip over shacks... a Dave Genz trap guide and also a nanook.  I don’t know a whole lot about either. The trap guide has a shallower sled, which is nice because it is lighter but also means that I can’t carry as much stuff. The nanook is new and has a deeper sled but not sure it will fit in the back of my suburban. Both are the same money.... Thoughts from someone that has used them? Mostly looking for me and my son to run and gone with when not in the wheel house.

I have a nanook thermal it’s a few years old.

 

no issues with fabric or zippers zero complaints there. the pole system leaves a lot to be desired. They work ok but not great. I think the seats have probably changed but I I keep them both unbolted to slide in the tub. When my kids not with I just use it as a big one man shack and take one seat out and keep the other In the middle. The brackets for the seat mounts make it easy to lift up toss in the bed of my truck.

 

the nanook is a little on the small side but maybe that’s ideal if hauling in the burban

Thanks Dave. Will it fit in the back of a suburban?

I haul mine the bed of my tundra crew max and it’s not a 6ft bed and I can still get the tailgate up with room to spare. Not sure if clam has specifications on HSOforum but I can try to measure mine if ya need it.

I have a Fish Trap guide that I have had for many years. The good thing about it is that it is small and light for a 2 man house. Personally I think the sled has plenty of room for what I haul. The problem I find is the lack of room inside. It's plenty of room for one person but it gets tight with two. The biggest thing I would like is more head room and the ability to stand up without going outside or flipping it up and instantly losing all the heat.

Thanks BD2. I ended up going the Fish Trap Guide 2-man. The majority of the time it will be just me, but wanted enough room to take the 8 year old. I found one for $150 in perfect shape w/ tow bar and cover.

Must be a very reliable one.

Maybe, but I don't use it that much either. I would rather fish out of my wheel house if possible.

Yeah, I'm hoping the wheel house can go out in another week. That would probably be the earliest it has ever been out and I've owned it for at least 15 years.

    • We were up fishing from last Thursday afternoon through Saturday evening. Fishing was great, lots of nice walleyes with a couple of fat 28" fish as the biggest and plenty of saugers. Fish bit all day with our best bite coming each day from about 2-315. Fish were somewhat sluggish from 11-1230 and had to be coaxed into biting or didn't bite at all but after 1230 most everything we marked bit. We were set up in 23-24', color didn't seem to matter although we tend to use gold more than most other colors on our spoons and we basically had every color tied on our set lines and they bit them all. There was about 3-4" of snow on the lake Thursday when we got there but it was a packed 1-2" by the time we left Saturday night. Some areas of rough ice but other areas are nice and smooth, generally about 14-16" of ice where we fished. Can't wait to get back up, good luck if you are going out!
    • That's the way most falls go. I was able to get out and put a gobbler down this fall. Went out just for a bird since I knew where they had been going in the morning. Got to the woods just after fly down and worked my way to the area and heard them talking a bit. Gave out a few yelps and had them running to me.
      Most years I never get a shot only have taken a handful in the fall. I was in a woods that I was not worried about ruining for deer.
    • Now that the corn is out and the ground is white the birds are really showing themselves. Three times in the last month I have seen 50-60  birds on a short day. Nearly every one was in a group and they are concentrating in dense thickets of plum brush.    And there are literally next to no hunters out and about going after them which is a big change from even a decade ago
    • I too remember these stupid punch cards in High school.  All the Nerds in the Computer class did stuff with um! 😅
    • I remember those stupid punch cards.  I was in junior high and had to “program” em in class.  I hated em and thought I’d just avoid using computers altogether! 😀
    • Good hunt in SD today: 
    • Had the day off so hit some public land around the Mitchell area today.   Did well, my favorite upland gun is my O/U and is currently broke. Busted a firing pin and waiting for gunsmith to get a knew one made on a lathe. So today I brought out the old 870 which I haven’t shot in at least 5 years or more.   Thought it would throw off my shooting but to my surprise managed a quick double on 2 shots lol. it’s always amazing how fast a day in the field can turn around. And I really enjoyed shooting this gun again. It’s amazing how something so cheap and simple is so good.   Day started out really slow I couldn’t find birds anywhere and then found the motherload. Shot my 3rd bird, put it in my vest and bumped birds all the way back to the truck.   Good late season hunt just wish we had more snow. And this warm weather isn’t helping ice that’s for sure.  
    • Looks good!  👍 Lets see no work gloves, may be a hat?  Do you have a coaster under that hot pan mister? 😊
    • Steak fajitas tonight.
