One of our good customers from South Dakota shared this picture of a monster 23 pound pike he landed on his 26″ Standard with a 4″ Reel rigged with the Jack Trap’s Big Bait Release Clip – the perfect combo of an ultra-sensitive trap with a bait release to keep that large bait from setting off the flag. When you get to that trap and the flags up – you know you’ve got a fish on! Lets see some pictures of the big fish you’ve hauled in this year on your Jack Traps gear!
Jack Traps Ice Fishing Outfitters would like to congratulate the lifetime fishing license winners at our 5th Annual Youth Ice Fishing Derby – David, Kaitlyn, Noah and Morgan! We’d also like to thank all our sponsors that helped provide the resources that allowed us to give away not just one but FOUR lifetime fishing licenses this year. Unfortunately with the poor weather we had on derby day we were not able to get everyone together for the giveaway, so we pulled four names at random when we got back to the shop, called the winners and had them stop by over the past week. We hope they enjoy a lifetime of fishing! Thanks again to everyone that helped with or participated in the derby and we’ll see you all there next year!

Jack Traps Ice Fishing Outfitters is seeking a well-rounded individual for a full time position as our manufacturing manager at our facility in Monmouth, ME. Jack Traps, Inc. is a manufacturer, wholesaler and retailer of the highest quality ice fishing traps, or tip-ups, available today. Additionally we retail a wide variety of the highest quality ice fishing gear and live bait all winter.
The individual selected for the position will primarily head our manufacturing process. We are seeking an individual with high-level woodworking, drill press and carpentry experience. Initially the job will include hands on, monotonous work – drill press operation, wood finishing, ice fishing trap assembly and other manufacturing related activities. All applicants should be good with their hands, be able to do one task for long periods of time, and have significant experience with woodworking, a drill press, hammer and screw gun. The position offers significant long term growth prospects and persons applying should have a long-term outlook on the company’s manufacturing operations — over time their primary tasks will evolve from hands-on manufacturing to managing others and creating a more efficient, larger-scale manufacturing operation as the company and sales volume grows.
Additional near-term tasks will include, but are not limited to retail store operations, stocking, inventory, shipping, bait tank maintenance and various other office/store/shop related tasks. Experience in those tasks is not required, but will be looked upon favorably. Experience with computers and email a plus. A knowledge and passion for fishing, especially ice fishing is also a plus.
As a company we pride ourselves greatly on customer service, quality and workmanship. Applicants must be friendly, easy to talk to and extremely thorough in the quality of their work. As the premium product on the market the manufacturing manager must have significant attention to detail. Individual should be an open, fast learner with the ambition to grow within the position.
Initial pay scale will be in line with a manufacturing position and relative to experience level — long term compensation levels have the potential to be significant if the individual is seeking a career as they grow within the position and with the company.
Please provide a resume and cover letter with a list of three references to firstname.lastname@example.org — phone inquiries will not be accepted, walk-in resume drop offs welcome.
Jack Traps Ice Fishing Outfitters would like to extend a GIANT thank you to all the participants, volunteers and sponsors that made the Kid’s Derby happen this year! Although we didn’t have the best weather, we didn’t let a little rain get us down and had well over 300 people on the ice for the day! There were plenty of fish to catch, hot dogs to eat and everyone made the best of it. We’d like to extend a special thank you to the volunteers from the Monmouth Fish & Game – these guys put a ton of effort into the derby year after year, starting months in advance, and without them we could not do what we do. Also a big thanks to L.L. Bean for sending up some great volunteers. We had a few regulars that unfortunately could not attend this year and the boys from Beans did a great job filling their shoes. Everyone else involved, THANK YOU!!!
