Polar Sport, Nordic or the Otter? Which color is best thinking Black to attract heat if possible. Also have been looking at the Frabill Ranger Solo? Torn between 1 person or two will be hand towing mostly. Decisions all the time? Need Help Thanks.

Do a search for the different brands on this page and you will find enough info to keep you busy reading for the rest of this frigid day.

I own an Otter Resort and love it. A little large to drag very far by myself, but great to haul in the truck or pull with an ATV or a snowmobile.

Have been reading for day's to many conflicting stories on each. Been to all the web sights checking the different ones out. Figured if I was going to spend 300. to 400. $ which most are running or more I would try and get a good one right off the get go. which color, which fabric one man or two best sled for your buck total overall weight for hand towing. Could not find a weight for the Nordic two man but from what I've been reading canvas is better than nylon, buy a two man in stead of a one for room. problem with two man its cramped for two people anyway and one man works great for moving when needed to find the right spot. Nylon is a whole lot more durable than canvas but breaths better. I guess wondering about set up of each and round poles or square. Like I said to many decisions last one I owned was a suit case type wood floor lots of changes sense than. Thanks

      I have also heard the rumors that the DNR removed adult fish to plant into other lake years ago. I heard that a few locals had gone as far as to threaten to dynamite the Pike River Dam if that practice did not stop!  I have never heard any proof either way on that report. I assume that fry are planted into lakes that they cannot reproduce in to give fishermen in the area of those lakes the chance to fish for walleyes. Most lakes that the walleyes can reproduce in naturally usually do not require yearly planting to maintain a fishable walleye population. The DNR quit milking walleyes early because they had no demand for fry elsewhere in the state. They very seldom try to fill all of the egg batteries in the hatchery anyway. Cliff
