dimensions of fish trap wear strips

Recommended Posts

What are the dimensions for the (HDP)high density polyethylene wear strips that Clam Corp. sells for the Fish Trap Scout. H x W x L

What type of screws are used?

I can order the material from work, I think it maybe a little cheaper.

Go to the Clam HSOforum. I believe you can download the instruction manual to put on their Hy-fax kits.
No guarentee's, but I believe the dimensions are on their manual.

Good luck.

I just bought the kit and put it on my Pro last night. Very nice and pulls better on the carpet, hoping it pulls just as nice on the ice! Will definately keep my sled from wearing out.

I just can't remember what was on the manual.

Ya I check there site. The only dimensions they show are the spacing of screws.

Just from guessing, what would you say the strips are about 1/4" thick? 1 1/2" wide, and 36" to 48" long? What type of screws did you use?

Where did you get your wear strips from? How much where they? Maybe I'll just buy them.

Thanks for your help!!!

Look in your Yellow pages under Plastic.
Ask them if they have any 1/2"high density polyethylene scraps. If they have to cut it out of full stock it will cost you a lot more. You'll want them to cut it into 1 1/2" x8' strips. Counter sink the holes first then drill through with 3/16th bit. Buy 3/16th flat head bolt, fender washers and nylock nuts. Use a tourch to heat the plastic to form the bends.

The material is no problem, I work in a Plastic Mold shop. So if we dont have I can get it for pretty cheap. We dont have anything in stock so Im going to talk to our purchasing agent and see what kind of deal he can get me. Hopefully he can sneak it on one of the orders for a job. Buying in large quantities reduces the price in most cases.

Thanks again

These are like little skis I assume? It's just a strip of plastic right? I should check out the wear on the bottom of my trap and see how worn it is.

    • Whats everyone's thoughts on this new feature? https://www.navionics.com/usa/blog/post/ais-in-the-boating-app/  
    • What you are doing is even better than what they hope to achieve with the law. I do the same thing. My minnows never see lake water while in my possession except while riding on a hook. It is not possible to transfer invasives via my minnows or minnow container unless they came from the bait shop and the result would be same either way.   This brings up a good question. Aren't minnows trapped in lakes and streams? They could contain microscopic versions of invasive species and therefore be responsible for transporting them to every lake where the minnows are used. Even those raised in rearing ponds are potential threats if the rearing ponds become infected.   Unfortunately, it is impractical (not impossible) for a CO to know that my minnows have not been in the lake. He would have to take my word for it. As a result, unless they catch me taking my aerated minnow cooler from my boat to my truck, ....  
    • I see they got Eddie & Cron back last night but now Buxton's out again. It didn't help though as they played a sloppy game & beat themselves.
    • Work related travel.  Never been to the northeast before and wanted to experience it as much as possible so I drove and took a couple extra days.   Original plans had me touring some stuff in the DC area but its been a little more difficult and expensive to wander about than I’d hoped.   Get me to some water!!!
    • Most of the fish I've caught out of the abyss were caught just above the thermocline or high in the water column (1'-15' down). A friend of mine once caught a 31" hog walleye on a top raider over 100'+ of water. That's just one of the many hogs to come into my boat that were 0'-5' under the surface in mega deep water. So, keep your lures above the kill zone on slot lakes and you'll still get bit.
    • To young to be retired whats up with all this Wandering?  Didn't you just come back from Musky fishering? 🤔
    • Walked the Inner Harbor a bit, ate soft shell crab and took in an Oriole’s game at Camden Yards today.  Oh, and finally booked a SHORT trip on Erie to catch on the ride home.  Better than nothing.   White water rafting tomorrow will have to do for my most significant Maryland experience.  This put a little chill on me when I noticed what it was.     It’s a nice place to visit, but... you know the  rest.
    • Tried my hand at making Nashville hot chicken last night. It didn't turn out exactly like I expected but it was still good.  
    • Great fish @Lals!   You sound like we did on the way home from our trip - analyzing every fish we didn’t hook up or keep hooked after they bit.  I didn’t get any joy from a Top Raider either but live chucking them.   Thanks for the report!
    • Just came back from LOTW.  Numbers were down but not bites.  I was a miserable 6 for 15 fish on. 75% of the bites came on the figure 8, I mostly tried to set back into them and they would come "unbuttoned " pretty quickly.  Next year, I will  try pulling them around or if they bite up in the corner of my figure 8, I would then pull the rod straight back trying to set it in the corner of their mouth.   Smaller bucktails got the most bites.  Cranks did pretty well too -- 7" Slammers and Crane Bait.  One friend got a 48 on a Top Raider. I had a 4 -5 large fish follow a top raider or a jackpot but none bit.  My brother got a 50" on a Mepps Musky Marabou.
