If it feels right to you, thats what matters.

What is the laptop worth? Which do you need more?

Equiring minds want to know........

A recent laptop is worth around $ 300 and up, if the sled is a runner, I would say it's a fair trade.

This is probably around a year and half old laptop. I don't need it, I have a few of them. It's had the RAM beefed up to 1.5 gigs, has a 2 gig processor and 60 gig Hard Drive. Built in wireless as well. It comes with Windows XP and also Office XP with Frontpage ($400 value). I estimaged getting a sled or wheeler between $700 & $1000 for it. IT's not new but has little use and should last the average user a few year. They sell for $600 on ebay for this model with no office on them.

I have a lead on another sled as this one isn't read yet. Here's the scoop on it. Which one would you go for. More for ice fishing than anything but trails wouldn't be bad either.

1996 POLARIS ultra, triple, ONLY 2600 AND SOME CHANGE MILES ON IT. i GOT IT IN A BARTER, BUT HAVE LOST INTEREST IN IT. GOOD TRACK, AND AFTERMARKET SKI'S. FROM WHAT I HAVE SEEN IT IS A BARGAIN. It was sitting since 2002. I HAVE IT REGISTERED TILL 2010, AND I WILL GIVE YOU THE TRAIL PASS I HAVE FOR SCOTT COUNTY, ALSO GOOD TILL 2010.

Being a life long Polaris owner I would stay away from the Ultra's.

Although it may be worth the Laptop!

i had a 97 ultra very heavy but fast, not the best sled for going slow pulling a shack i think it will load up & fowl the plugs. just my $.02

I would concur here...i dont think a triple in general is a good ice fishing sled due to the slow speeds and fouling.

I don't think I've ever heard anyone recommend the Polaris Triples.

vikingmeatwad, you will hear lots of guys recommend the XLT's but not the Ultra's. I'm a Cat guy, but in my opinion the XLT's were good sleds from what I saw. The Ultra on the other hand was a big pile of manure!!!

XLT's are aweseome..... just a little to heavy and you don't need the extra cyllinder for icefishing!

i have a xlt i love the sled other than the fact it weighs as much as a cow, but its way fast and i never had a problem with it. i have taken it ice fishing a couple times and going slow is not good for the triples, they load up and start missing, if this happens just go wide open for a while without pulling and you should be fine

      Although not level related, can someone tell me what the current water temps are in the main lake, Big Bay  Cliff ? I am coming for a week a the end of the month. Thanks very much

      Really, do you think it will handle 19 Bucks? 🙄    😅
    • ozzie
      rayguy how has the fishing been the last week?  I know the weather hasn't been  ideal but hopefully you have been out.  I won't be up this weekend but will be back up next Thursday to catch the Vikes game at a local watering hole and then fish most all day Friday and Saturday.  Hoping to get another report from you closer to Thursday next week also! 😁

      click hereSuper-Handy Heavy-Duty 4,000 LB Capacity Rope Hoist look at it on amazon. 19 bucks. I bought one about 10 years ago and love it. I can raise a big deer by myself with this one. So glad I bought it since I do the butchering. I raise them up, tie legs off to rafter with a rope so it doesnt spin and skin away.

      Any thoughts about stocking perch of other forage base in this water to keep the walleye from canabalizing the younger year classes?

      Tough day of fishing for this guy today, ended up with about dozen eyes kept a limit of 13.75"-18"ers... I must have drove around for 2 hours before I even wet a line...Pretty sure I zippered every rock reef in big bay and to the east... I finally found some fish in a 30+ foot hole next to a sand hump... I found my best spot a couple hours before I planned on taking off (of course it was .5 mile from the access) 21-24ft sand/rock transition right by an island. I was surprised with how many people were out for a weekday in the fall.

      I was just telling my wife how I used to look forward to your detailed reports on here from my dads account on the way to the cabin years back, then I switched over to YouTube to enjoy Casey Sunsdahls updates. If I have time before we come up on our spring trips I will even go deep diving years back that have the same ice out dates to try to gain more insight on new locations to try. Sure miss your reports and hope you and yours find some luck. I will report Monday with our findings as we are also forced to come earlier than we would like, hope we can help narrow the search for Waldo! PikeMaster

      Nice tigers!

      We have caught a ton of 12” Waldo’s in big bay and east. Good to hear it reaches to Frazier.
