KFGO Trip

2 posts in this topic

I was up to LOW for the first time on the KFGO trip to Ballard's. Fishing was great, the three of us in our house caught about 150 fish over two days. One 24", lots of 16" to 18" fish and tons of smaller ones. We used the genric gold jig and caught some of the light bites. We switched to jigging ice flies with full minnows and 2# line and picked up a lot more fish including the 24". Make sure you tap the bottom with the jig. On the dead stick we had jigs under bobbers with full minnows hooked thru the back about 4" off the bottom. That was the most fun I have ever had fishing.

      I also needed to buy a receiver so my total cost was $500 but they did have them at Scheels beginning of the year but you can buy it from dish. I think they charge $7 a month for use of the receiver.

      I was out last night in west metro and the water had mostly either frozen again or gone down the open holes. I was pleasantly surprised. We lost about an inch of ice though the top few inches were starting to soften.

      I would build a frame that your current otter sled would fit in that has downhill skis on the bottom of it.  I did this for my setup that is very similar to yours, I can pull 100 pounds through 8" of snow with very little effort.  Side note I wouldn't pull it with a four wheeler, mine slides to easy and wants to hit the back of the wheeler when I try to stop.

      I've got an Eskimo 949I which I love. We occasionally go deep off the trail to isolated lakes and my otter sled is too much like dragging an anchor when we break new trail or if there is deeper snow on the ice. I am in search of a slender long sled that pulls easier and can still accommodate my hub house, auger, buckets, poles etc.   ive looked at gander, FF, cabelas, Joe's and the like without finding exactly what I want. Does anyone know of a sled that fits my description?  Thanks and tight lines.
