The Poly Ice El Cazador Xstream trawldoor

The Poly Ice El Cazador Xstream trawldoor is a higher aspect trawl door than regular bottom doors. It can be used in different bottom trawling setups. The stability and efficiency of the El Cazador is promising compared to regular bottom trawl door designs.

Poly Ice El Cazador is widely used in Russian waters where the fishing setup requires a trawldoor capable of fishing on hard grounds and deep water and with a quick change of gear being able to work perfectly for bottom and pelagic fishing.

In New Zealand, where they have developed a special fishing setup for Hoki, the Poly Ice El Cazador has shown great results when flying the fishing gear close to the spikes and downhill on under water mountains, catching big schools of “Hoki” in fishing depth from 200 to 1100 fathom while fishing on and in between the rocks.

In October 2011 Hampidjan merged its Poly-Ice trawl door brand with Thyboron Skibssmedie A/S in Thyboron, Denmark.  Consequently, Hampidjan became the sole selling entity in Iceland and New Zealand for both Poly-Ice and Thyboron doors.

Both Poly-Ice and Thyboron doors are manufactured by the well-known quality trawl door manufacturer, Thyboron Trawldoor.

Our customers can trust that Poly-Ice and Thyboron trawl doors are designed by using exhaustive hydrodynamic testing, flume tank and onsite trials and are made from quality material by outstanding Danish craftsmanship.

Poly-Ice doors come fitted with the patented X-stream technology that reduces turbulence behind the trawl door significantly and therefore reduces drag, making the doors more stable and lighter to tow.

The Poly Ice El Cazador can be customized and designed with either a wide mud shoe or bolted on manganese wear shoes.
