ice house catch cover inserts

4 posts in this topic

I am looking to buy 6 inserts or sleeves for my shack. I have the USA made catch cover holes. Any info on the sleeves or inserts, are they worth it? is black white or glow better? I use a 10" auger, also wondered if they get in the way if your jig might catch them on the way up or any other problems. Thanx Guys

I have an 8" auger, so I can't comment on how they work with 10" holes, but they are worth it regardless. They keep out the drafts and if you push snow up against the house later it won't fill your holes when it sneaks underneath. Same goes for landing fish or even bringing up a jig...it funnels them up so they don't get snagged up on the bottom edge of the hole.

I have the white and I like those because it lets a little light in. I think black would make it too dark, but everyone has their preference. I've never heard how long the glow lasts before they have to be "recharged".

Do you cut them off so they are flush with your house floor or do the stick up above your floor?

      Was up yesterday.  Tried going out of Stoney Point the sand landing is undo able ice ridge out a ways and did not see any tracks going out.  The boat launch has a pressure ridge in front and looked like ATV were following the ridge  toward the point.\ There were two trucks out there no idea how they got there.  we finally went out of Pine Point.  Ice conditions are perfect. No slush no water on the road,   You cannot get out to the trench from here ice heave between. We drilled some holes and a lot of  5 inch perch. When we were going out we asked if the tullies were biting,and he said no  not yet Seems to shallow out any where out there. The was in excellent shape as a lot of wheel houses were coming out.  4 wheel drive was not used all day.  Ice cleats would have been nice to have.Hope this helps

      Most of the mercury pollution in our lakes is from rain.  That's why lakes deep in the back country also have consumption advisories.
