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?

      make / manufacturer: Eskimo
      model name / number: Mako Upgraded to an electric auger and selling my old one. Runs great and has been well taken care of. Starts on 2-3 pulls every time. I have the extension for it as well as a new set of blades that I bought but haven't needed to change yet. I also have a cabelas auger bag that it fits in.

      I scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.
