ATV ice equipment ideas

Recommended Posts

I have a 2004 Honda Rancher and I want to build some type of box for carrying ice fishing equipment (auger, 20# propane tank, vexilar, etc.) Just wondering if anyone had a picture of one they built. Just looking for ideas. Appreciate any suggestions.

I have an otter fishhouse. I just don't want to pack it full everytime I go out. This way I can set up the house without unpacking everything. Better accessibility is the reason I guess.

I saw some racks that attach to the back rack at the ice show I am not sure who makes them, maybe maddog gear? I know they have holders to mount to hold your auger but the rack was a box style and would hold a lot of stuff or 3 - 5gal buckets

Did anyone see that atv by the Jiffy booth at the icefishing show? It had a rack on the back that looked wide enough to carry a 20# tank. That's what I'm looking for. The one's that I've looked at don't look wide enough.

Three milk crates bolted together, holds a 20# cylinder and two 5 gallon buckets. My buddy calls it getto, works for me.

As far as auger mounts go, it's pretty hard to beat the Mad Dog Auger Mount. I tried to beat it doing it my own way, and now I have the Mad Dog. $40 well spent!

Good Luck,

MJ

Check tractor supply, Cabelas used to carry them,not sure if they do any more... I think Koplin makes them.

I have a Mad Dog auger mount on my front rack and love it.

Does anyone out there know where I could get some milk crates?

I bought a rack for the back on my ATV from Cabellas. It is 3 circular hoops that fold up when not in use. Each hoop will accomadate a 5 gallon buckt. I also have two milk crates on the back ATV rack right behind the seat. For the auger I use my front rack mounted gun racks for the auger, secured with a bungie cord. It I'm going a long ways I put the auger in the sled and use the travel cover to keep the snow out. It works pretty good. good luck and hang on. Bill

    • 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.
