Otter Shacks?


Guest

Question

Two questions here?
Of all the shacks that I have browsed this year I am still sold on the Otter II Magnum @ 80lbs. Anyone have anything to tell me about why I shouldn't go with this model.

Heading up to Reeds today to see what they have left so who is the one to talk to about cutting me a great cash deal?

Did you try Capras down in Blaine? I was in there a couple weeks ago and thought that I remember seeing a few left. Don't know if it the specific one you are looking for but it can't hurt to call. From your profile I see that you are in Aitkin, kind of a drive but if you can save 100 bucks, and only spend 20 in gas it would make sense. Hope this helps.

Chiro,
Check out Canvas Craft in Anoka also, if they have any left you may be able to get a good deal, or at least a free cover.

Little Jim's Bait in Annandale had some. I bought one this year and love it. Would recommend getting the cover bench for it.

Chiro, food for thought. I almost bought an otter but at the last moment decided on a trap voyager and really like it. I hae two kids that like to fish with me and they wouldnt fit in an Otter with me, but all three of us do fit in the Voyager. About the same price too.

I fish, therefore I am.

Reeds web page still shows that they have them for sale. So unless they don't update their web page you should still be able to get one. The magnum is awesome just got one a couple months ago and it is so nice. Another idea here at the end of the season look for a used one. That is what I got saved almost 250 with everything I got over the price of a new one and it condition isn't to bad a couple small holes easily patched.

I bought a fishtrap voyager in january and took it up to lake of the woods on 1 trip .
The velcro tabs that hold the poles in place tore off of the canvas.
Also the sled itself is much thinner plastic so if you intend to tow this sled any distance it will wear out quickly.
I bought it at cabelas and traded it in for a otter II magnum .( cabelas is very good if you buy something from them and are not satisfied )
The otter II is actually a bit bigger and a much better built house! I bought their bench seat (from otter website) and its really comfortable with this setup! (a little spendy though ,but worth it!)

fishrmn, sounds like you got a lemon, did the stitches just unravel or did it actually tear? Have used a friends voyager for 2 seasons now and havent had any trouble with it. Seems to me that the ice armor fabric is tougher than the otter canvas. I would agree the otter sled is thicker, put some hifax runners on the trap and you will never wear out the bottom. I dont mean to turn this into a chevy/ford discussion smile.gif

Scott,
This may be a dumb question but what do you mean by getting a free cover? Do they give them out for free at the end of the season?
Thanks!

Ya Hey Der,
Yes, I bought a magnum at the end of the season and they were throwing in a cover. So since I would have gotten one anyway I saved $50+. Very nice house too, I'd recommed them to anyone.

Like the others have said , go to Canvas Craft in Anoka. I bought an Otter Magnum there in December and I really like it. I got everything at once, tow bar, hyfax and cover. They threw the cover in with the purchase of the tow bar and hyfax kit.

      We fished Thursday - Saturday. Couldn’t get any marks to bite on the west end so started east. Caught lots of 9-15” eyes on the mud side of the transition. Mostly crawlers for us on Thurs-Fri but bite changed to minnows on Saturday. Our rainbows ran small but had a few big chubs mixed in. Big chubs we’re best. No eyes on small suckers.  A jig and sucker or crawler on 9-14’ rocks got smallies going in several places. Rocky points coming off islands also produced smallies with tubes, deep jerkbaits and ned rigs on east end. Also landed a 45” ski on a crawler harness.

      Hello. Another important factor to consider when looking for an writing service is the amount of work they can do. A company like https://payforwriting.com/pay-for-papers/  offers a wide variety of topics and has over sixteen writers who are experts in the subject matter. The service also offers proofreading and editing services. Prices start at , but they can get expensive quickly if deadlines are tight.

      Hello. The first step is to read reviews written by customers. This way, you can determine if a service delivers on time and does not charge hidden fees. The paperwriter reviews should also state whether or not the company guarantees original work. Some of the most reliable review platforms include Trustpilot and SiteJabber. Moreover, many  writing services publish their customer reviews on their websites, some even in video format.

      Hello. Remember, cheap writing services will not pass a plagiarism scan and lack quality.  When looking for an college papers writers , you can look for online reviews that compare several companies. Those reviews should include both positive and negative feedback from customers. The service you choose should also provide timely delivery and no hidden fees. Additionally, it should guarantee that every paper is original. This way, you can be sure that you are getting a high-quality written by a competent writer.

      Sounds like a fun day Moose. The weather was just about perfect for the days event.

      I also don’t really believe that you can earn online casinos. There you can play, put bets, win and more often lose money. In the casino for Norway, the same rules apply as for the rest of the casino. If you are lucky, you will win. But to earn money, it is unlikely.

      Went duck hunting at my dads house I missed the only duck in range. The we went grouse hunting and we put 6 miles walking in and flushed two grouse and a woodcock.
