Ameristep and HME both make drink holders for tree stands. It looks like they retail for 3.99 to 5.99 and are available from Cabela's or Bass Pro Shops. I haven't personally used one but they look pretty handy.

I much prefer a hydration pack with a bite valve. I have a Camelback which has been great. With the bite valve positioned properly, you almost have no movement when you go to take a drink, plus there is no bottle or can to drop and make noise.

hydration packs are nice and I have one in my hunting backpack, but it doesn't hold pop, coffee or cocoa. Kinda nice to have a place to put down a cup without worrying about tipping off of your seat or having it between your legs when you need to take a shot.

I use a pack that straps around your waist. I carry a knife,scents,license,snacks,sandwiches ext. Plus it has slots on both sides for cans or bottles. Once in my tree I strap it around the tree. You can put it high or low. I usually put it so its just off to the side of my seat, so I can reach it without to much movement. You just want to make sure its out of the way for bowhunting. If a shot presents itself behind you. During rifle hunting I hang it to the side so I can also use it as a rest for a longer shot behind me.

Harvey I was just on the cabelas website and they sell something like this that can bolt to the shooting rail or seat frame of your stand. It had a large cupholder with a hook below that they showed holding your thermos. I think it was like $12. If anything I'm sur eyou could find something at a truck stop or auto parts store like the ones that hang in the track of a car window or on the old armrests.

I bought a couple that would hang in your car window ledge and took a hose clamp and attached it to the side bar.Works great and now its easy to have a pop if you like.

I have seen mesh can holders that just screw into the tree like a step would. I have yet to buy one. I have also thought about getting just a chunk of wood with a double ended screw screwed into the edge to screw into the tree so you have a little mini table to set your coffee cup on. There is alot of time to think of this stuff on stand.

      Bla bla bla, all this Walleye talk is boring me to death.   The real opening day is this Saturday when the Muskie opener comes to Minnesota and the Big V.  I'll be out fishing with my son and grandson searching for some real fish.   The weather looks great, my baits are all sharpened and the new line is on all my rigs. Bucktails, Glittertails, spinnerbaits and minnow style cranks will make up most of our arsenal, however we will also be tossing a few topwaters looking for those Big green girls and not even talking about Walleye fishing.   Have a great weekend everybody!   "Ace" "It's just fishing man"

      5/29/17 Fishing report from Flag Island Resort NW Angle, Lake of the Woods   Happy Memorial Day!   The past week has brought some variation in weather including sunshine, wind and rain. Overall fishing has been good.  The bug hatches have started with the fish flies having some impact on the fishing but, anglers are still consistently getting limits.   On the Minnesota side, the walleye, sauger, pike and perch bite continues. The magic depths have been between 7-13 feet in the mud and 16-26 feet on rocks. The Flag Island Flats are starting to heat up. Other hot locations include points and near shore reefs. Just the same as last week all tactics have had their day. Jigging, raps and spinners have all been producing once you find what is working. The water temp is around 58 degrees.   Over in Ontario anglers are still catching a nice mixed bag of walleye, sauger, crappie, perch, pike and smallmouth bass. The crappies are moving shallower getting ready to spawn. Some depths according to their species are as follows; Smallmouth bass 2-8 feet, Walleyes 20-24 feet and Sauger 26-30 feet. Points, reefs, humps, areas with current, rock piles and inside turns have all worked when looking for locations. A jig or spinner with a minnow or crawler has worked best. The hot colors have been gold, pink and orange.   Until next week, good luck fishing! Guides, Dan Schmidt, Jeremy Glessing and Cale Albers Flag Island Resort 218-223-8011

      Sunday, different lake, different observations. I saw a few beds, but there were not any fish on them. I caught about two dozen gills and only one was female.

      I am ready to fish now that turkey season is done for my nephew

      Just talked to a buddy with an Ultera issue. He damaged the belt when he secured the motor head to his boat using a ram mount. Others I talked to said keep an eye on the belt tension. It is adjustable with an allen wrench.

      Yup!  I can see how that would be annoying!    Welcome to Fishing Minnesota though.  Glad to see your posts.

      Got out on Saturday along with my brother who went out in his boat. So much mud that we went our separate ways searching for better water. With 3 in his boat he caught 5 Coho and 5 Lake Trout. I found a nice spot and went 2/5 before the wind messed up the spot. Sunday morning went out with my brother to the same spot and had a double before the third line was out. Ended up going 7/11 before a storm with red in it chased us off the lake. Loonasea was correct on the nice size of the Coho's right now. All fish were caught with stick baits on top.
