Skis on Traps!

Recommended Posts

I just picked up a pair of great condition Rossignol 160 downhill skis without bindings. I am going to mount them on my Fish Trap Pro...any suggestions?

I want to keep it simple stupid...KISS!

Timmy?

We put skies on our traps to save the bottoms.Cut them to length ,2 screws countersunk and you should be all set.

Thanks Tank...I was thinking about putting four 4 inch blocks to raise it up a bit!

I was thinking it wouldn't push as much snow if I did this. Plus raise the seat a bit. Then I run into the trouble of the skirt not sealing the edges...I have a few months to weigh out my options confused

Nice idea on the lift kit. That would have to help when pulling in snow. 4 inches might be too much as that might lift the skirt too much. But a 2 inch lift might work well. I'd try it but our two traps stack with just enough room in our Jeeps and fit just right under Billys toneu cover.

Try the lift kit then you could always reduce the height if needed...

I put my skis on top of those worthless runners clam has. Brought it up about half inch but anything is better than those runners . . .I just screwed through the holes that were there.

I have been contemplating rigging up my trap with some type conduit pipe that could easily be raised/lowered for the purpose of easier dragging through deep snow I haven't tried anything yet but was thinking something along the lines of using spring buttons that are currently used or the traps or some type of locking spring hinge

I saw some Guy's at the Silver TA that used your idea Tim. They pulled it all over the place...they also had a machine, so I guess it didn't really much matter.

    • Sounds like you guys gave her heck up there to find them. I'd be praying thanks, too if I got that one on! ☺️
    • Quick recap:   Weather was too darn “nice”!  Upper 80’s - 90’s; no wind to speak of; mostly sunny. Water temps were anywhere from 64 - 71 depending on location and day.   We looked the lake over from end to end, marking up our map and returning to some places where we saw fish either later the same day or a couple days later.  We could literally see the transition from spawn to post spawn happening during our stay.  Being new to both muskie fishing and that lake, we spent time in dead water as much as good water but feel like we got a pretty good handle on how to go about setting up a more efficient return visit.  It was a lot work and long hours but I’d go back this weekend if I could so I must’ve enjoyed it.   A few pics as hoped for:
    • big dave 2 and leech, darn good lookin meals!!!!  Dave have a good weekend!!!!
    • Ok Dave have a good weekend. Hope you get over the whole butt hurt Leech deal! Not sure where you got that I don't like folks smoking or grilling things?  I know I do enough. Have fun! 🙂  
    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
    • We switched to a new server. Had a glitch in our dB that lost a couple days of posts.
    • I ripped a hole in one of my favorite pairs of fishing shorts just need a decent sized patch to cover her up
    • I am not sure what happened either but we lost all of the posts last couple days not just this thread. And it looks like the same thing happened over on FM site as well. I know the site was down last night while I tried look at it.
