New Fish Trap II shell?

Question

Steve Foss

Hey everyone:

I've got a USL Fish Trap II that's given great service, but the canvas shell (also called the tent) is wearing out and torn from hard use.

Question is, can I get a replacement one that fits it in the new ice armor fabric? Do the shells/tents for a Guide fit a Trap II?

USL's Web site is no help on the topic. Would really like a new one, but guess I could go buy some light canvas and cajole the wife into winding up the sewing machine.

Catfish, I purchased a replacement for my trap 2 last year direct from the company. You should have a tag inside your tent with the company name and phone no. As I recall they are in Plymouth mn and the replacement cost is $150.

Strikemaster,
I think you can upgrade to the new material.I replaced mine last year with the old type material. As I recall I inquired about the new material and it was more money. I paid $150 for the old style. The distibutor is in plymouth Mn. If you look inside your trap you should have a white tag with the name & phone of the distributor.

Hello there. I replaced my old canvas with the new ice-armour nylon. It's a little loose but I could probably get it tighter if I dinked with it some more. You won't be able to use your front spreader bar. This was replaced with a adjustable rear spreader. You'll need to drill a hole for this, not a big deal. If you don't feel a need for the door ask for last year's model. It will be cheaper. I'm not sure how much they go for. The company's name is USL and they are located in Plymouth. I work there that's why I don't know any prices for replacement parts (mine was free). Their websit is www.uslproducts.com. the phone# for customer service should be there. If you need some help or have any questions feel free to e-mail me at Czarniecki2@aol.com. Good luck

      Eyeguy and I made it out one last time yesterday. Access points are getting pretty bad in our area. Was finding roughly 2ft of  very chunky ice in the places we drilled holes. With the warm weather and bright sunahine we had, I'm guessing we lost a few inches through the day Fishing wasn't exactly fast and furious, we did get our fish... but really had to work for the quality.  The area we ended up finding our fish was a shallow 6-10ft dark bottom flat, close to where they will move come ice out.   It soon became apparent the fish we were targeting were almost swiming with their back right against the bottom of the ice, infact my two best crappies hit while my bait was only inches below my hole.  Baits we found better success with were the Northland slugbug and The Impulse Mayflies in bright colors. Jig size didn't seem to matter much due to the depth we were fishing. As I am typing this, my thoughts are already turning toward warmer days spent chasing smallies on the river. The boat and yak are soon to be ready, rods will be strung and so on. It was one heck of a long winter.... fished with some real good people from this site I had more good days than bad, got some monster fish locally... for these things I'm truly blesaed.... like I said,It's been a long winter....I'm glad it's over Pic is of my last big ice crappie for the season

      I will certainly keep you informed about the progress of the hatchery. I expect to see the nets and traps go in within the next two to three days. The run should be very strong as the fish are already moving into Pike Bay strongly. Cliff

      Thanks Cliff for your Pike River deteriorating ice reports and pics . I. Really want to show my wife the hatchery when the action is really happening this year , I would assume you will be right on that when this happens , is there any way that you can give a shout out on here as to just when this scenario is happening up there . With the warmer temps being quite steady now , I would think the run will be rather strong this year when things get going ..

      I got the 4 smaller ones the other day. They are a little over 2" long and paid only $6.64 total to my door.  The quality seem pretty good, we shall see once I put them to some use!
