I have pics of mine on the fish trap tips thread

I was on a bus and just happened to be sitting on a news paper. This guy came up and asked. "Are you reading that ?"
I said  yes, stood up, turned the page and sat back down.

I made a simple upgrade to my jet sled that anyone can do.  I used a piece of 2x6, 2 eye bolts, a bungee cord, a 1 & 1/8 inch drill bit (I believe), a tape measure and permanent marker to make a ruler, and a piece of metal on the end to put the fishes nose against for a quick and accurate measurement.  Not in the picture I added 2 eye bolts to the front and made the pull rope much longer so I could put it over my shoulder and across my chest.

I like the rod holders on your commando toofuss.  Nice set up.  I need to get a 1 man shelter for after work nights.  I got a 7' long Clam honker.  love it but a lot to move, load, set up etc when its just me.   :-\ 
Red screens......tight lines......

Yep I run the commando when it's just me and an otter Lodge for bigger outtings or when I can drive out. The only thing I don't care for with the commando is the maxx system in it. The rod locker is not big enough

Great mods guys! I could look at shack mods all day.

Toofuss, where did you score that sweet auger rack?

i built that using an ATV gun rack I found on clearance.

Yeah, I'm reasonably happy with the final product for now. I would still like to add reflectix to the top and I'm still working on lights as well. It's a bit of a Frankenstein project since I was trying to put stuff to use that I already had left over from when I tricked out my Voyager and other projects as well. So I ended up with a Clam seat, Frabill rod holders, Coleman beverage holders, and a door prize from a I cubs game that I re-purposed into a tackle/storage unit. I used Fusion paint on the sled tub and we will just have to see how it holds up. I'm ready to see some ice soon.... Hope everyone else is having a good pre-season as well  :tipup:  :tipup:  :tipup: Shoney
