I tried to find some photos to see what the size was I used but no luck. If I remember right the tires were wider than they were tall. Can't think of anything I would change aside from the bolt for the mount, it might have been just they way ours was set up but if you had any decent wind blowing up the flakers ass the mesh would get hung on the bolt. No biggie really but when you get all liced up and the net would pile up behind you as you pick bones it was just another pain in the ass that slowed you down.
Yeah bolts and or bolt heads i'm sure would hang web up. Little bit of splashzone over the bolt heads would take care of any hangs. I'm thinking of building one thats why i'm asking. Can't see paying 3-4 grand for one when i've got enough aluminum/ hydraulic motors laying around here to put one together, buddy mig/tig welds so i'll fab it up and let him squirt it together. I found some tires online 11" tall, 8" wide. When they raise the daily quota to 10,0000lbs of dogs i'll be callin ya with a job offer
Something like this is what i'm shootin' for
Yeah, I overheard a fish dealer talking on the phone last month, saying something about 7 cents or some shit. I assumed it was dogs. Trip limits go up and they want you catch more fish for the same or less money: such bullshit.
iv used several different flakers and the best set up was one that was mounted so you can shift the flaker forward and back and also left and right. made it alot easier when loading on multiple strings and also helps adjusting for wind if you have a small pen. Make sure the hydraulic lever is close to where the flaker man would be standing for when you get binded up and need to shut it down and reverse the net out. also bring a small basketball pump on board the first few trips to adjust the tire pressure to grab the float line betterâ€¦..wow 7 cents for dogs in mtk i think the going rate now is 15cents a lb for the box lol.
