Catch Cover Sleeve Cut Height

Recommended Posts

What does everyone like for hole sleeve length? Right to the ice, 1/2 or 1 inch off?  Just a day fishing/run and gun rig so freeze in is not a huge concern.

Thought I would add that distance will vary slightly depending on cargo. I put two catch covers in my car!

I am thinking you need some sort of drop down sleeve with that thing.  Maybe a sleeve within the sleeve.  Seems like it would get banged up going down the road. 

 

Not to be a Debbie downer, but make sure you've got some ventilation if you're running a buddy heater in there.  

 

Also, great toilet for your passengers when going down the freeway.

 

That is a sweet rig though. Good work.

I'm thinking he takes them out to drive, that may be why he has them marked R&L on the top edge of them?

Well it should be pneumatic, obviously.

 

 

 

Do you have to drill holes and line em up?  I'm having a hard time visualizing an assembled kdrill having clearance.

So... now all you need to fab up is a rattle reel with a seatbelt end to use for your dead stick and you'll be golden! Very cool.

 

......searching C-list for used mini-vans as we speak

Rattle reel was put on the list early on during the build. 

 

Chrysler minivans with stow-and-go seats removed are a good candidate. Those compartments might even get away with the 9 inch sleeves readily available at FF.  Whatever you look at, check for obstructions.

The old CHEVY Astro van's with AWD would be a good one to get on and off of lakes better with.  And their not as high as a cargo van for the sleeves.

Have you tried trolling with a daredevil yet?

Don't think I want to straddle any cracks with my car..

 

I did drill/hole hop from the drivers seat this weekend, then got in back when I found some action. That worked great as the dead stick ended up being the better method.

I pulled the R cover off at highway speed this weekend. It seemed to be a slightly negative pressure with only minor turbulence towards the rear of the hole. Could be risky unless you sit down and plug the hole with your behind, space toilet style. That would obviously present other risks, I regularly see roadkill porcupines in my travels. .

Just cut the bottom out of a 5 gallon pail and put one of those seats on the top.

    • I remember the very high index around the 96/97 winter.  Actually that was the first I ever heard of it.  Made sense though. We were riding the NSST north of Silver Bay and one of our wrong turns brought us to two mountains of roadkill deer carcasses. The roads were the only means of travel for them. That was the deepest snow I ever encountered sledding. At one overlook I stepped off the side of the packed trail and went over waist deep, needed to grab the sled to climb back out.. The 3 sided log shelter at this spot only had a gopher hole in the snow to get down in it!   Hope Feb isn't a repeat of last year..
    • i've been watching this for 4-5 years now, maybe longer. back when the DNR cut back even some northern minnesota zones not have anterless drawings.
    • I don’t usually search out the WSI but have taken notice of it for years.  They usually start reporting it in Outdoor News when it starts getting bad.  I figured it was going to be high this year.  We’re just lucky it hasn’t been colder.   Still, I hope for the best for both mooses running around here. 😉
    • Just an interjection, if you have been following the issue of Moose vrs Deer in the NE Minnesota area.   You may now return to whatever you were going to say about deer and snow.    As I understand it, cold and snow can be hard on the deer population.    Although, judging from the evidence in the spring at our cabin it hasn't hurt much the past few years.   Anecdotal evidence and all that.
    • I didn’t realize we changed the subject
    • Naw this moose hunts deer in the arrowhead and the deer numbers have been for the last 5 years now. This winter could really hurt the herd
    • Since I Deer hunt and snowmobile I'm always a little torn when there's a lot of snow during a winter. 😐
    • Nice looking spear. 👍 oh yeah fish too.
    • Nice 28 inch this morning, even got the meat saver shot right.
