I'v started to look for a cargo trailer to do just that. I want to be able to take the 4 wheeler out fishing with me. I was wondering about putting windows in the trailer. Do you have to put them in betweem the support ribs or can you go wth a larger window and cut some of the ribs for the window to fit?

Talk to Bruce at Monticello RV. They used to have cargo trailers equipped for ice fishing. Don't know if they still do.

newwoodhntr if you are looking for a preconverted trailer look at b and l trailers they have a converted trailer if you want to purchase a preconverted one. I just want to convert the one I have access to so this isnt an option for me or I would seriously consider one.

I just bought a Dressen Custom Trailer 7x14 V nose. It has the drop down wheel system and tongue that stays attached to the bumper when dropping it down. It also has the rear doors to drive a 4 wheeler in. I bought it used, but it is a 2009. I'd check with DCT Trailers out of Dell Rapids, SD, it seems like a solid trailer thus far.

Try looking at the Marine general dot com. Search for Icehouse Sled Rack. I'm thinking about getting one for next season.

      My parents were up yesterday and Wednesday and they did pretty good. Out in the mud in about 33-34 feet. Lots of boats were trolling but they did well looking for pods of fish and then spot-locking over the top of them and jigging with leeches and frozen shiners.

      Is the water starting to recede on the lakes East of Orr? I heard it was really high on Myrtle. We're coming up to Black Duck in a week or so, just wondering if things are getting back more towards normal.

      I’ve fished sylvan heavily the last two years. Done very well. Many nice pike, bass, walleye, and bluegill. For pike trolling shadraps pretty much any where will get you all the 20”-25” pike you want. Plenty of dence cover all over for bass and that is the usual bass presentations. And for gills in the spring the channel between the two bays was VERY good this past spring went three days in a row and got 2 limits each time ( two angles in the boat) and relesed many many more.  Also the panfish limit on sylvan is 5 per person so be aware of that. I was out there 2 weeks ago and did ok. Again two limits of nice gills and a handful of pike but it took a lot of work to find them. I’m unsure of the walleye fishing out there but have heard it’s a good lake. Im not an expert on sylvan but know a little so hope this helps ya out. Good luck!

      The last two times on the river have been slow to say the least. Trolled Shipping channels, river channels, and all the flats. Crawler harnesses and crank baits. Anybody having any luck out there?

      If the water is that clear and you can see 17-20 feet down, the fish will be very spooky.  And if the sun is out, they will be looking for relief from the sun in the form of shade.  Night time might actually be a better option.

      Not terrible.  But they can be merciless, I will tell you.
