Tire Chains

3 posts in this topic

Last year I investigated getting tire chains and found a lot of info online. I noticed you had to get EXACTLY the right ones for your tire size and they all were a little diffrent in how easy they were to attach. My truck seems to get around pretty well up there but towards the end of the season last year it got a little dicey. I have never used them and was wondering if any of you might have some advice on chains and how many of you use them.

I run chains on my truck for moving fish houses and plowing. One on each rear tire. The brand I have were around 100 dollars? They hook up in a snap.If you do get stuck you do have to be carefull as they will dig into the ice in seconds.

I bought two sets of chains at Mills Fleet Farm. They had the most selection. Mine do not have the v-bar welded on ut came in handy on Red Lake. I had to put chains on all 4 as I do not have locking hubs. I did not buy the chain tightners but may do so now. Would help keep chains tight etc.

      You were in the right area, maybe just the wrong time.  I went out late this afternoon to see if the house my Dad has been using came through the "flood" OK and decided to drop a line when I was there. When I first dropped the hook down the hole a walleye screamed up off the bottom and slammed it 5 feet off the bottom. So out of curiosity I just sat there and jigged 4 to 5 feet off the bottom and they kept coming up and slamming it. They never touched the dead stick that was set 1 foot off the bottom.  All I can think of is that with the snow cover gone they could really see something up against the sunlight. I hadn't seen the walleyes that aggressive all winter.  maybe it was because I was fishing in a hole about 20 inches wide due to the water running down it.   No I don't think so cuz I have a big roll of duct tape and a bunch of white sheets. I'll wrap me, the Jeep and the dog in white sheets. We'll be just like ghosts.  OOPS, just remembered that the snow is all gone. I really think that after all the years we each could stick a pin in a lake  map guessing where the other one would be and we would each be within 1/4 mile. From his description fishing tech was right on the eastern edge of your favorite area.

      What needs to be in the boat, to be legal to fish Superior. I've been trying to find it in the book with no luck.
