If it's shrinkwrapped there should be no problem outside.

Well my favorite dealer didn't get my boat Winterized until early January (I gave it to them in November) so I just kept it outside with a very good cover over it. It made it through just fine. Just make sure your cover support is robust enough to handle the snow load.

I store mine outside. I use a 10x20 tarp with a 2x4 ridge beam down the center of the boat. The 2x4 sits on a pad on top the outboard and a saw horse in the bow. Looks like a tent when I'm done and the rain and snow slides off. I leave both ends oped so air can flow though.

      CigarGuy, We did not venture out very far from the Landing, walking distance only! The ice had about 3" or 4" of soup on top everywhere. We fished in 12' to 14' depth on the first drop off. The kids iced a bunch of small perch jigging with small jigs and wax worms and missed a couple of pike on tip-ups. Fun day for all of us! Cliff

      Ice is very black and honeycombed.   I would say its only safe for walking but if we get a lot of snow it may not be safe period.   I have open water pockets in the ice by my shore.   Open water is not far from becker and the river is opening up north of the access.   Don

      Were you renting from the road operator or a guide using someone else's road? I have heard of having to pay the road pass if the outfitter you work with doesn't have their own road. Cookie mentions it in his updates quite often, since he uses/helps with Hillman's road.

      Thanks.  We sadly have caught bigger but didn't get them on video.  Average size this trip was around that 18.5-19" mark.  We got really excited because a few of them were 21" and the state record is only 20.5 or 20.75" but the state record had a girth of 6+ inches!  that fish had to be THICK!  Was a ton of fun and I can't wait to get them from the smoker on Friday!
