Multiple Hole Sleeves

Recommended Posts

It seems like every time I went fishing this winter it was a different distance from the top of the hole to the ice.

I would build a set of hole sleeves and they would either be to long or to short, so I ended up building 4 different length's, built some 9" today.

I use the wide mouth 5 gal buckets from the local bakery at 1.00 ea, I cut the very upper ring off and then put 2 wraps of Foam Tape Weatherstrip, 1/2" 3/4" wide x 17' long just under the bottom ring so it fits tight in the hole.

The finished sleeve costs about 2.00 ea and works great as long as it reaches the ice, or close to it.

I will see next season if I have most of the sizes that I will need

why not use 2 pails per hole? cut bottom and top off of 1, so that it can tellescope in /out

I guess Im a little slow at times, but that's why I love this forum with all the great ideas that the members share.

I will use your advise, and I believe that will solve my problem.

I prefer the sleeves to be an inch or so too long on top giving each hole a border from accidentally kicking things down. Another tip is to use white sleeves to help illimunate the light better.

    • Well Thank God for your wife. Shes a saint. 😇
    • 1 x 6 untreated red cedar bds cut to 15" for the weber has worked good for me. You can get lots of cooks on one board.  It's a lot cheaper than getting them at a grill store. The salmon looks good!
    • Yes, it's Food Grade cedar! 😋
    • Seeing the plank brings up a question.   Is that cedar that is sold as cooking planks any different than the stuff sold at the lumber yard for various purposes, like siding or roofing or docks?

    • Last friday of lent and Coborns had a flash sale on fresh salmon so I put some on my overpriced pellet grill.   Good thing my wife talks me into sacrificing eating meat on Fridays of lent, you know, for Jesus.    
    • Got up early and put this small piece of brisket on my overpriced pellet smoker. I've never done one this small but my buddy who owns a meat market gave it to me at half price to get rid of it. It's  almost foiling time now at 10:30 am.
    • I’m in St. Cloud for Easter weekend, and decided to check out nearby Little Rock Creek. I had very low expectations. There’s a few easements, and a nice little wildlife management area, but the creek really isn’t very fishable. Water was pretty high, and banks were flooded. Overhanging brush would make fishing impossible in summer. Didn’t catch anything. Wasn’t disappointed though. Now I know not to bother again. Was still a nice morning for a walk in the country.
    • Haha. So, her boots kept falling off so much (several sizes too big), she eventually put them on the wrong feet. I tried telling her that, which is always a losing battle on my part. I thought maybe, that if they were on the wrong feet, they would stay on better. They did not.   This is the best time of year to take kids out trout fishing. No leaves on the trees, brush is still dead and matted down, so casting and walking are super easy.
