Organizing sled

Recommended Posts

First time poster from N.E.Michigan wanting to say howdy and tell you this is a great site with lots of info.
Been lurking for about a year and getting lots of tips and taking advantage of all the field research and inventions you guys are doing.
Rock n reel, tech light, pond bag, butt bridge,ice grippers,to name a few of the items I've found as a welcome addition to my arsenal just within the last year that I learned of or purchased from this site.

Now for the question while I'm waiting for the bay to stiffin up a little more.... what kind of ideas would you all be willing to share about snugging up all the "other stuff" in the sled of my otter.
propane tank, minnow bucket(spilled water)flasher etc. I've already got the auger and spud taken care of but the rest of these items need to stay put in the tub while heading out across the pond (Lake Huron)and I'm sure based on past experience there are some good ideas you all have come up with. Thanks in advance.
Baydog.

I'll help with the minnow bucket part. I went to Target and bought a 2 quart pitcher (for orange juice). It has a water tight lid so when it gets tipped over in the it won't spill. It also has a pour spout so when you want to change water just start dumping and leave the minnows inside and last, it fits right down an 8" hole to fill it back up with fresh water. And to top it off, it's cheaper than a minnow bucket.

Hey, welcome Baydog! I've found nothing beats the old custom made roadcase. A little heavy but everything in one place snug and secure. Just a plywood box with a lid, and as you place stuff in it, add a wood divider with some packing foam. Pretty soon you have a well organized case with everything you need. I use mine for boat/car camping as well. Lantern, gas, tackle, icerods, towels, utensils, spare mitts and hats, and of course TP!

Croxston bag or retrofitted arrow case for rods, milk crate for 20# propane tank keeps from tipping, hard sided minnow bucket in 5 gal. pail or as stated above a water jug with spicket and tight lid, tackle fits in Croxston or arrow case, lantern in case in 5 gal pail with towel to keep from banging around. Hope that helps.

Just a fast note I use a ice cream bucket for a minnow bucket the lid seal for no spill transportation and it fits just perfect in a 8" hole so you can keep it down a hole and doesn't get in your way in the house and keeps bait very lively, works for me

If you get the hyfax kit go to the hardware store and buy half a dozen longer bolts.Then put a sheet of plywood in the bottom and attach it to the sled via the longer bolts.Now you can put screw eyes into the plywood and bungee everything down.

    • Wow, I didn't think single stage versus 2 stage snow throwers would become a Ford vs Chevy conversation.  My take is that for the average home owner with a flat, concrete/asphalt, standard three stall garage wide driveway, the single stage should suffice.  I will continue using my 2 stage at the cabin on the driveway and gravel parking/walkways.   Leech has me concerned on the Honda single stage, so now I just need to determine which to buy.
    • I wasn't planning on going due to the project list getting longer but I took my 7 year old out to sit last weekend. We got home and he was telling his mom all about it and how cool it was seeing deer walk by and how he wished there was more time in the season. That was when the wife asked why I wasn't going to go during muzzleloader and that I should go so I can take him out again. I felt like I had to be a good husband and just agree with her. Sometimes it's about compromising with your wife just to keep the peace in the house. 
    • I would bet that there will be people out on smaller lakes in the Detroit Lakes area this weekend. 
    • If time allows I will get out for a couple walks in the woods with the muzzy.  I didn't get anything with the gun and have yet to buy a bow license cuz time was spent chasing fall walleyes opposed to deer.  Good Luck to those that get out!!
    • Looks nice. You must have to be real careful with the saw to get clean even cuts and the bases.
    • Very cool, love the woodpeckers.  I save fat from my deer to feed them all winter. They seem to prefer that to the store bought suet cakes.
    • thanks guys, i've only owned 2 blowers. both 2 stage and the first one i think came over on the mayflower!!!!!!!!!!! guess i never paid much attention to other blowers!!!!!
    • Looks great! Big improvement in a small area
