Equipment holder for ATV

Recommended Posts

Just got an ATV and fired up to use it for ice fishing. What do the rest of you use for holding your auger and what type of rack do you have to hold your other equipment like buckets and things like that. I have a Yukon but I don't like hauling everything in that if I can help it. Any advice on what's worked is helpful. Thanks,

I just made one out of plywood and 2x2. Just took everything and laid it out and built a box around it. Works great holds three buckets, flasher, auger and heater. Just starp it on the back of the 4 wheeler and away we go. I leave it on there trailing also, I have lids for my buckets. Doesn't look as fancy as the other ones out there, but it fits the budget. Good luck.

Here is my set up. Used basically t HD gun racks for the auger rack. They are mounted on a storage box on the front.

In the Auto dep. at WalMart You can find a set of Jaws that clamp on your racks. They sell them in other sporting stores, but much cheeper there. They have alot of ATV stuff!!!

I cut a 5 gallon bucket in half and zip tied it to my front rack. I use that as my bucket holder. I have an auger holder on the back. That is it. I can get my rods and jigs, along with my Vex into my bucket. I salt my own minows so I never have live bait. It doesn't look like much but I like to go with as little as possible so I can jump around a whole bunch. 2 inches on a little lake I fish near home. Should be at least a solid 3 if not more this weekend.!!!!!!!!

I got a couple of V holders for the front at Fleet Farm for pretty cheap and they have straps to hold the auger in place. Got my GPS holder there as well. I have a bag that has a seat on it for the back of my wheeler that holds a lot.

Built this12”X12”X36” box a couple years ago and it carries auger and anything else I can pack in it really well.

Hey Buddha

I sold my sled and replaced it with an ATV this year. I have been having a blast getting it set up for ice fishing. I drag around an Otter Cabin. As for carrying my Auger, I also went with the Mad Dog "V" mounts. It's pretty cheap - got mine at FF - and seems to hold it pretty tight.

Have fun with your ride.

Thanks for all the ideas, now I have some things to think about. I have a 2-up from Can-Am so I like the idea of putting things in front and keeping the seat in back for my fishing partners. Looking forward to ice, let's hope for COLD!!!

    • try the raid spray on grass at bottom. 
    • Here are some pictures from this years trip!
    • How do you keep ants off your feeders, especially hummingbird and oriole feeders? I've tried Toro and Raid sprays on the post but it seeks the birds don't like that smell either and i don't see many for a while. Has anyone else experienced that? Any good ideas?
    • I should’ve looked closer - I have an eyes open pic too. 😌  Tough to tell sometimes on my phone screen.  
    • Among other wilds that have moved into our urban areas, we can now add loons.  There is a breeding pair on the lake formerly known as Calhoun, mostly staying on the west and northwest sides.  But there is also a bunch of yearlings fishing the east side, numbering maybe six or seven and so unafraid that they come right up to the 36th Street dock and try to steal suckers being used for musky bait.  Maybe the call of the wild is not really so alien to the South side of Minneapolis, but it looks like the loons have moved in and can be heard calling from time to time. 
    • 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. .
