Tree Stand Lock

3 posts in this topic

He guys just thought I would let you know that I was at wally world this past week when I came across a new tree stand lock called Python made by master lock. It was camo, and looked cool, so I was checking it out. Well I wondered how it worked, so I was playing and by chance I took a key from package 2 and inserted it into lock #1. Imagine my surprise when it opened the lock. So I looked at all 4 hanging there and they all had the same key. Not sure if this was a bad batch, but I wouldn't trust losing a stand to a lock that everyone had a key to. Just thought I should share.

Good tip on a good product. It certainly would work nice on those public spots. However, your best bet is to remove your stand on public land if there is a chance of it being taken. Good luck all!

I am fond of a lock/cable I picked up at a bike shop. Its a kryptonite cable which is plastic coated. The first one I bought had a padlock on it and I used it to lock in my auger and house in my old pickup w/o the topper, until it got exposed to an icestorm...

After a half hour with frozen fingers and lock deicer and no luck I was able to cut it with a vice grips with cutters, but it took me twenty more minutes of knawing through it. The next one and one I really like has a combination lock on it.

To bad people aren't all honest or have dignity and we have to go through all this crap, huh...

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!

      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.

      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.

      What kind of hand auger and shape is it in
    • LBerquist
      Heard island lake was a hot spot. Any lure that resembles a small foot should work well.

      I'd go with 112 if you have the room more power and I believe last longer on the water. I pilot is worth it. Spot lock to fan cast an area or to stay outside the dock that you just got broke off of are two benifits. I pilot link links up with your hummingbird unit if that's what you have for a depth finder. Let's you follow depth contours. Good luck with the purchases
