Bop,

Because of the huge differences in sled designs they pretty much need to be tailored to your specific sled. What kind of sled? Can you post a picture here or e-mail it to me?

It is a 94 indy classic touring 488. 2 up seat no basket on the back. I dont have a picture available as of now. It looks like new with only 2000 miles on it, to good of an offer to pass up. Perfect for what I am using it for.

I have a 94 polaris indy sks I use for ice fishing. I built a rack on the rear of it for hauling my ice auger. I have pics posted in the ice fishing forum. It hasn't been viewed for a while so I will add something to it to bring it back to the top. I hope it helps you

Sorry it took so long fellas live on the Iron Range by eveleth. I found a guy that may build me one but it didnt sound like it would work to well with my sled. So i guess i could still use some help. What would something like this cost?

Just took pictures of mine. It is very lightweight (aluminum) and is rock solid.

Yep, good setup there. I bought those U-shaped mounts for my atv to use for gun hunting and later found out that my Jiffy fit perfectly in them. Your setup seems to add more support to it, which seems even better. thx for sharing your pics.

Paul, Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!!! grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

I am working on plans for a mount, and when I seen your pictures that completed it!

One question: where did you get the square aluminum tubing? Looks like 1" x 1/8" sidewall??

Cheeser,

I picked them up at the local Hardware store. They were just two foot long pieces and I put them together using corner brackets. Easy to do and very strong. The pieces were like $4.00 a piece and the 2 brackets were like $3. Add an ATV snowmobile rack and about $6 in bolts and teflon nuts.

Fleet Farm has a good selection of aluminum stock in quite a few sizes and shapes. Decent prices in most cases.

Here's a photo of the rack on my sled.

There are also more photos and "how-to" at this link...

Hanson's Auger Rack

I started out using the same auger carrier from Mad Dog that Paul has but I couldn't get the mounting blocks w/ velcro straps to fit right between the Strikemaster and my rack.

So I cut that plywood spacer and notched it for the gearcase of my auger. It holds the auger head perfectly and securly with a bungee cord.

Just another idea...

I had a similar type of auger rack system last year. It worked great, but my only beef with that setup is narrow trails and portages, especially fishing in Canada. It's almost impossible to get through some of them when the auger is perpendicular to the sled like that, and some times you need to get a run to get over some of the big icy hills at the top. Makes it tough to creep along and make sure the auger doesn't hit any trees. My goal is to have a new rack ready pretty soon that will keep the auger in line with the sled. Wish me luck, I will post pics if I can actually pull it off.

Any luck with the auger rack? I'm curious to see what you had in mind. Please update us with your results smile.gif

      Time to get the yak ready. Might need to paddle a couple spots on the sippi soon.

      Nice Crappie!

      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
    • Bigfatbert
      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!

      Thanks Leech! Ya you need a life jacket in a kayak. I have mine behind my seat, but Yes I should be wearing it. 
    • leech~~
      Nice video! Life jackets not needed in Yak's?  Just asking.
