I prefer the Otter. The tub is much thicker and durable than the Fish Trap tub.

I have a fish trap guide and have seen the voyagers. I really like my trap. the tarp is very strong, u can cut a hole in it and pull as hard as you want on the fabric and it won't rip. I like the shallow sled also, goes through the snow easier than the deep tub sleds. deeper sleds really don't have an advantage in my view, u can fit just as much stuff in a shallow sled, unless you plan on just not organizing anything and piling stuff up in a deeeper sled. i have used my trap for two years hauling it on and off the lake and my sled has held up great...
i've never seen a 3 man otter, seems like every portable you see here are traps and a few frabills..

Otters are nice. The sled in thoose are about the best of any. I cant say the same for the fabric though. I dont know much about the fish traps and really dont want to smile.gif Never rule out the frabill ranger tri-plex 3 man house. The fabric on thoose are the best out of any.

I just bought a new fish trap guide yesterday. I took it out fishing last night and so far I really like it. It's light and pulls through the snow really easy, easier than I thought it would. The only thing I am wondering about is, the support pole that is at the top of the zip-out door covers the upper portion of the windows. Does anybody know if it's supposed to be like this? Also that rear adjustable support pole, I don't understand why you need that because I already have enough tension in the rear. The trap seemed to be fine without it in.

I just bought a fish trap guide yesterday. I took it out last night fishing and so far I really like it. It pulls really easy, easier than I thought it would. But I was wondering, the support pole that is just above the zip-out door on mine goes over and covers up the top portion of the windows. Does anyone know if it's supposed to be like this? Also The rear adjustable support pole I don't understand what its use is because I already have enough tension back there and the shack seems to hold up just as good without it in. Thanks for your help.

      Eyeguy and I made it out one last time yesterday. Access points are getting pretty bad in our area. Was finding roughly 2ft of  very chunky ice in the places we drilled holes. With the warm weather and bright sunahine we had, I'm guessing we lost a few inches through the day Fishing wasn't exactly fast and furious, we did get our fish... but really had to work for the quality.  The area we ended up finding our fish was a shallow 6-10ft dark bottom flat, close to where they will move come ice out.   It soon became apparent the fish we were targeting were almost swiming with their back right against the bottom of the ice, infact my two best crappies hit while my bait was only inches below my hole.  Baits we found better success with were the Northland slugbug and The Impulse Mayflies in bright colors. Jig size didn't seem to matter much due to the depth we were fishing. As I am typing this, my thoughts are already turning toward warmer days spent chasing smallies on the river. The boat and yak are soon to be ready, rods will be strung and so on. It was one heck of a long winter.... fished with some real good people from this site I had more good days than bad, got some monster fish locally... for these things I'm truly blesaed.... like I said,It's been a long winter....I'm glad it's over Pic is of my last big ice crappie for the season

      I will certainly keep you informed about the progress of the hatchery. I expect to see the nets and traps go in within the next two to three days. The run should be very strong as the fish are already moving into Pike Bay strongly. Cliff

      Thanks Cliff for your Pike River deteriorating ice reports and pics . I. Really want to show my wife the hatchery when the action is really happening this year , I would assume you will be right on that when this happens , is there any way that you can give a shout out on here as to just when this scenario is happening up there . With the warmer temps being quite steady now , I would think the run will be rather strong this year when things get going ..

      I got the 4 smaller ones the other day. They are a little over 2" long and paid only $6.64 total to my door.  The quality seem pretty good, we shall see once I put them to some use!

      Thanks Leech! Ya you need a life jacket in a kayak. I have mine behind my seat, but Yes I should be wearing it.
