Fish Trap


Lucky Eddy

Question

I have holes worn through my plastic sled on fish trap. What kind of material can I use to fill them in with? After I get it fixed I will put runners on it.

Lucky Eddy:

You can get hyfax runners to put on the bottom. You just drill countersunk holes from the bottom of the runners up through the trap floor and used bolts/nuts to fasten them.

Assuming your wear-through has happened on the extruded parts of the floor, the hyfax will cover those spots, and you won't even need to repair them.

And repairing them is difficult. Most adhesives that work on plastic won't work on the high density polyethyline trap tubs, because it's my understanding HDPE contains oils, and applying new HDPE material and heat is how they are repaired.

Not sure where to get the runners. I've seen them in some fishing stores, and they were sold at the ice fishing expo in the cities in December.

Try melting a plastic milk carton on the hole(s). Cut into long, thin strips, using a torch or a lighter, and drip on the edges toward the center of the hole. I've repaired many gas tanks on sleds and dirt bikes that way. Used hyfax should be in dumpsters behind busy snowmobile shops in a low snow year. Good luck!

Kevin, that's a great tip on where to find Hyfax runners, which tend to be hilariously expensive in fishing stores, considering what you get.

I'd be interested to see if the milk jug thing would work on HDPE. Sounds like a reallly good possibility.

I don't know if this is the same item but when I unpacked my Sno Boat Explorer it had a sheet that gave prices for runners on the bottom of traps, along w/ the different styles. Let me know and I'll get you the info. You can reach me @ [email protected]

      Yes, you can make good money at the casino, but I think that this is unstable earnings, and situational, if you play every day, you can get into very large debts. I was advised this casino - https://onlinecasinospill.no/ , I tried and made no mistake in choosing, there is a huge bonus system, constant promotions for any holidays and a bunch of different slots that only improve the game, also the probability of winning is quite high, I was able to earn a small amount of money, I advise you to try

      Филипп 9:29 In order to avoid unplanned expenses, you need to immediately discuss all the nuances with the contractor. In fact, there are many options. But it still seems to me that it can be done independently, even bulky things with several people can be loaded and moved on by themselves

      I agree with you, but not completely, because you can win once and bet a little more, that is, set aside 80% of the total amount, and then play for the remaining 20%, I think this is a good option, and in any case, a person will win

      As far as I know, there are several companies in Boston that are engaged in full professional relocation, it takes a little time, but they take enough money, I saw a couple of ads on the Internet about such work, you can also find performers of this order there

      For a long time I wanted to turn to a good programmer so that he would collect applications for mining for me, but I could not find it and abandoned this business, now this thought is returning. I came up with such an application that no one has, but no one can assemble it, everyone refuses. I looked at the site that you advise, quickly read it, this company made a good impression on me, I will carefully read it in the evening, then I will contact them and if they agree with my idea, I will order.

      The creek  bite has been nothing short of awesome as we come to the end of Sep.... Some days are definitely better than others, but even the slow days plenty of fish can be caught if you put in a little time and effort.   3 and 4 inch z-man plastics as well as grub style plastics have been getting the job done for me again this week.  Also been using some number 5 shad raps just to change things up a bit... 😁
