Lefty its 1 1/2 in, and they are key hooks with a 90 degree bend in them.  You set the rod tip under one hook and then run the line around the other so that the rod tip is pulled out from under the first hook, setting the line.

Could you take a close up picture of the hooks?

   Thanks Hounds.
 
   I use the same thing.  They are so handy to have around the house for all kinds of homemade projects. 
  You can also get them in a lot of lengths, hooks and circle hooks as well.
  I'll try to post a pic also. Thanks again Hounds..


 You can also heat em up red hot and bend them in to any shape you need.

look back a page for those pics.
Pole tip goes under first hook, line goes over to second hook.  When a fish pulls on the line, the pole tip it pulled toward second hook, releasing it from first hook.

Bart these are the best I have, we presently have no Ice in Indiana :(

The rod tip is under the hook on the left as you look at the picture.  The line from the rod tip is taken and run around the hook on the right.  When the fish takes the bait, the rod tip is pulled out from under the hook on the left and the hook is set.  Caught two Bluegills with it last year, during a very short season here in Northern Indiana.  Hope this helps.



This was a picture from last year I have since painted it orange, and added an audible alarm.

Hounds, thanks! I'm seeing it now. Question, the hook on the right where the line goes around, is the "L" hook necessary or just a stud type hook (the bend cut off,"l") would it work?

That is what I was thinking also. I think I will go out and get me some PVC today.

Bart it isn't neccessary.  It is just to pull the rod out from under the other hook.

OK,I got the parts and have most of it cut. It is taking a little time getting the Length just right. I know all poles are not created equal. My length at first cut was 18" but then I cut the pole holder part down some so that will have to be shorter. I will have to play around with it a little more to be sure the rod tip bends just right. Had to stop working on it as I am now cooking Corn Beef Brisket and Cabbage for dinner. Yes I am the cook in my house. I like it that way. I got my first Pressure cooker and I found a good recipe for Brisket.

I only have one rod I use with mine, not sure the other I'm thinking about using will have enough energy for a good hookset.  Dryfire it at home by tying a weight to your set up and drop it and you can start fine tuning it.

Got one done. Not perfect but works good. I used a Zip Tie added to the tip of the pole for adjustment. If you want less tension use a longer zip tie.



The right and left hooks are for Righties and lefties. LOL :roflmao:

Good idea with the electrical tie.  I'll bet a snap swivel would work too.

I am modifying it tomorrow to be more like yours. I need to tilt the front out so the line drops in the center of the hole instead of the edge of it.

Are those lag bolts or just threaded bolts so it will come off the sled?

Looks good.

  Excellent !! " Hounds … Excellent build!

  I love how strong it looks and is. The way you used a wide variety of of TEES and Elbows. With the amount of cross joints you have in both directions and side to side and front to back. It looks like it is very very strong. It looks like it would hold way more weight than one could pull across the snow. I know that Tees and any joint are not always cheap but they help give so much extra strength with tied in PVC pipes at certain places.
  I can't wait to see how it looks all loaded up on the ICE! The Hoarder in me … Yells … pack it on there Brother!  .. LOL ..

  It looks so light also. I Like how you have hung the shovel and extra rope. Everything is in it's place and out of your way.
 Do you think you may need a couple of cross overs attached to the wood blocks from one ski block to the opposite side? ( just to limit the sway of the skis (possible little wobble) and even more strength?)

   Thank you for showing us your PVC project.  Cool.

They are Lag bolts, I'm not sure about the cross members that may be the next alteration.  I also plan to add 4 Lawn mower wheels about an 1/8 to 1/16th lower than the skis.  Thats for when I'm on pavement or cement that has been shoveled.  I still have to glue her up yet, but have everything dry fitted and ready.  Loaded it up to make sure everything fits.  Here is another pic with it loaded.

I think in total about 4 pieces of ten foot pipe.  I also bought some 2 footers I found at Menards.  I've had a recent death in the familly so I do not have time to count the elbows and T's for you at this time.  If I were you I would use 1 1/4 because I have seen Corners at menards and crosses at ace in that size. could not find them in 1 1/2.
