    70A9AA97-14D7-4B73-989F-7E91E975C7AC.jpeg We have a lot of animals … so we get a lot of Chewy boxes. The box I was using wasn’t deep enough and I was getting a lot of bounce-outs. This weekend I cut the bottom out of my old one and slipped it inside this new shiny one :) now it’s 23” deep and I get very few bounce-outs. Used fender washers to protect the cardboard from ripping. Threaded rod to hold the back stop and eye bolts and an s-biner for the string. Works a dream!

      I recenlty got a plastic drum.

      paid about 15 buck here in Mexico, just cut it open and no bounce outs ever since, you should really look into getting one!

      I'm in San Luis Potosí, it's in the northern part of Mexico, about a 5 hour drive to the border, we are South of Monterrey and north of México City

      Here is a pic of my barrel... bought it whole and made the hole at home

      Here's a simple way to have a portable catchbox with multiple uses. I helped a fellow's campaign a while back and ended up with a bunch of the frames from his yard signs. I wanted a quick catchbox for setting up when i go fishing and the bite is off( most of the time).
      Weld the wire into a frame and stretch one of those mattress covers over it and it doubles as a wash tub the rest of the time. P5260011 (Medium).JPG P5260013 (Medium).JPG P5260012 (Medium).JPG
