Went out to the flats last Sat. caught a personal best

27 3/4" trolling a Rapala TD 11 in 30 FOW at 1:30 in the afternoon. Only got out for 2 hours and that was the only fish caught. Wish I would have had someone with me to take a picture.

What time of the day were you out there? We fished from 8:30 am till around 11:00 caught 1 10" eye didnt see any bait or fish in the area we trolled. Was that you that came all the way from the S and trolled N btwn 7&9 all the way to at least 8 mi? 1 other boat started around 7mi & headed south. Had my worst day on Mille this year. Good to hear you did OK. I was going to give up trolling (daytime)on Mille. You might have changed my mind if it was just a timing thing. Went over to Farm Island with redtails and had a real good time!!

      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.
