Why does it need to be so shallow? What do you need it for?

Take a look at the Otter Sleds, I can't post the link, but just search the internet for "Otter Sled"

The smallest one they sell is
44"L x 22"W x 8"H for $25.

I'm not finding much else right now though, again if you can clarify what you need it for maybe we can think something else up.

Sportsman's Warehouse in Coon Rapids has EXACTLY what your looking for. Their in the last aisle to the right as you come in the door, behind all the open water rods.

Take a pair of old skiis and screw 4 4"X4"X4" blocks on each of them. Then drill a 1" hole on the inside of each of them to put 1" conduit in. Drill down through the block and conduit and secure with a small screw. Drill a hole in the tips of the skiis and insert rope. Makes for a very light and easy to pull sled. May be able to find old skiis at a ski lodge for next to nothing.

Crappie-doer,
My son had the same problem with his house.
He bought a medium Otter sled, had a friend weld up a 5" high rail of 1" sq. tubing and bolted it to the top side edges of the sled,This gives you a great tie-on spot for ratchet straps, plus your power auger,rods, etc. will all fit in the sled!
Works great for hand towing and with a towbar tows great behind his sled or atv.

      Made a few modifications to my pontoon.   I thought it would interesting to summer ice fish in the same spots I catch all of my winter walleyes.   Don

      Anyone have any luck around stuntz bay seven sisters area lately?
    • jkrash
      I heard the guides are on to the walleye bite on the west end, finally the fish have returned and it appears there's a few good year classes.

      @Tom Sawyer Its not supposed to be that way.  Is it??  It stinks when everything else gets in the way of spending some time on the water. 😒

      I couldn't agree more Jarrid,  modifying the possession/ catch limits would probably help preserve and enhance the fishery. Several years ago when I was still living in the St. Cloud area, there was a lake outside of Albany that a  couple of year classes of Croppies came into their own. After  the increased pressure of both one hard and the following open water season  that lake saw, it was like  the Dead Sea after that.  Personally, if I find an active school, I won't keep my limit, just enough for a meal with the family.

      To call this summer "busy", would be the understatement of the year for me.....

      Been out of town for most of my fishing as well.  Looking forward to being in the boat around home in the coming weeks.  It’s just never for the amount of hours I get on board for the out of town trips.  More like 2-4, maybe 6 hours at best here.  Never the marathon 12-15 hour days I’ve been blessed to have a few times this season so far. I did just walk down to the river to make a few casts for my evening fix and picked up a 17.5 smallie on a Pop R.  That’ll have to do for today. 😉

      Was up on the big V for the last week with the family.  First time for all of us on the lake.  And for a newbie, it was really tough fishing all week long.  We did better than every group we talked to in our resort, but that is not saying much.  Because of weather and other things, we fished for on 5 days, and managed just about 5 limits of Walleye total.  Was a great week to be on the lake though, what a beautiful lake, and everything else was awesome.  Just need better information for next visit.

      Thanks for the compliment.  I've been up in the Cass Lake area the past few weeks.  Did very well on eyes but really struggled to find the crappies and I wasn't alone.   
    • osok
      This surprises me Borch.  5-6 years ago when I was  living in the St. Cloud area, if you looked up "Mr. Consistency"  in the dictionary, your mugshot would come up.  Things must be all whacked out.
